I've noticed quite frequently that there are more frequently women who get regarded as hot than guys, but women seem to notice the guys who they regard as hot more than guys that notice hot women. The standards seem to be set to where a few of the main guys who they regard as attractive are Channing Tatum, Henry Cavill, David Beckham, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Alexander Sarsgard and David Schwimmer, but there seems to be fewer of them. Whenever a women seems to notice them, they become more obsessed than how a guy becomes obsessed over hot females as well. Does society tend to regard more women as attractive than men?

Yes, that's why we have ads on female beauty. I really don't mind this and I hope that it's usually females seen as a sign of beauty. Seeing them, as a guy, won't put pressure on me to look like them. Whereas, if it were men, I'd envy them and be pressurized into looking like them. I do feel bad for some women who are stigmatized for not looking like that 'model', don't got me wrong.

Funny, I'm not attracted to any of these guys.

What I notice the most is the complete lack of comments on good looking guys facebook pictures saying so. You might find one or two. Then you go to even a slightly above average woman's pictures and it's all "omg you are so gorgeous!". I don't get it, it's like it's not as socially okay to tell a guy he's good looking.

Women have more tools at their disposal though...it's easier to go from average to slightly above average, in even 5 minutes (light makeup). Men, not so much. Even though we as a society are more open minded than previously, there is still a stigma against men who obviously spend time on their appearance- "metros", "feminine", "pretty boys" etc. We're just used to women being the "fairer" sex, while men are supposed to be tough and unconcerned with their own looks. perhaps because of this men who are apparently "naturally" very handsome (Henry Cavill types) will garner extensive and vocal praise and adoration from women. I don't know, those types of men are not my type.

[I'm all about lumberjacks getting sweaty in flannel and growing sexy beards and not giving a fug about unibrows. Men who wax are especially unappealing, I'm not sure why, but I wouldn't even do that. No beauty is worth that much pain!! Easy going, don't-care-about-the-latest-fad kind of guys are the real deal..]

This cannot be anymore truer!

I notice this a lot on Facebook photos. Women, no matter how attractive or plain they look, are entitled to get comments like "beautiful", "so pretty" and such (I'm sure half of the people writing stuff like that don't mean it). But yet a man would get comments like "where is that place", "nice background", etc.

But then again I totally understand the comments. If a woman were to compliment a guy it's like she wants him or she's putting herself 'down' for him, or maybe she has a partner herself (that's why, I believe, we also rarely see a complimentary comment from women to men). And obviously a guy would not compliment another guy because, sadly, some idiots would question his sexuality.

A lot of times the guy gets commented on their shirt. I like it when woman are upfront with what they think about a guy .
