Seems like most guys I see with girlfriends have broad shoulders. Would you guys agree?

Edit: even though this isn't the exercise forum, what are some good workouts for broad shoulders?

I can't speak for the LTR pool, but yeah, broad shoulders are typically a desirable quality.

I've never heard of this being a quality that women are looking for.

pics of swimmers shoulders - Google Search
Not always but yes it gives them a manly look.

I have broad shoulders and it's due to swimming and genetics.

My wife always tells me my shoulders are her favorite feature on me. I'm not a big guy, but I have a nicely developed torso and shoulders, so I guess it is paying off!

It's an attractive quality but that's not a top priority in what a man has to offer...

Broad shoulders are a stereotypical physical trait that women go for in men... like tall height, or a full head of hair.

Maybe it's connected to a subconscious attraction to a physical "formula", like the hip-to-waist ratio for women that men are supposed to show a preference for. In women, the hip-to-waist ratio may indicate fertility, so maybe the broad shoulders in men correlates to fertility or virility, or a physically strong guy who will be a good hunter/provider...
