I hate the fact that I don't choose which women I'm physically attracted to. Like this ex co worker who pretty much threw me under the bridge I would still "hook up" with her because I'm programmed that way.

If you take care of your teeth, eat healthy, go to the dermatologist and go to the gym women will find you attractive. I tell everyguy this. It's hardwork but taking care of your physical appearance requires discipline. You have to make yourself look as best as possible and find your personal style. It's not easy. Especially the gym part and its expensive but it does work.

Women will smile at you alot more, start conversations with you, hell some will even make up excuses just to touch you or get your attention.

Then you have to find out a way to make every women excited about you. It took me a while but I found that most women like my sense of humor. So I make them laugh alot and they enjoy my ambitious attitude.

But yeah it sucks. It's nature's way of making sure we reproduce. You know what would really suck?? If we couldn't masturbate. and the only way to get "it out" would be to have sex. Laws and moral principles would be redone. The world as we know it would change.

Actually, the cost of going to the gym and running for free at your local park/track is cheap compared to not doing anything and suffering the consequences of it, such as, accumulating expensive medical bills and suffering from health problems that could prevent you from working.

Other then that, I agree with your post, but from my experience, if you're a fit man, you're mostly going to attract women who are 40 and over, which is fine, if they are still good looking, but good luck finding women who are in shape (.i.e, slim, have muscle tone), over 40 in this country given the obesity statistics.

Young, hot, 23 year old girls could care less about what you look like, they care more about your status and the amount of money you make.

I have to seriously disagree. From my experience its completely random which women who appreciate muscular men. I get hit on by fat, skinny, young old, white black, etc. etc...Most women appreciate a guy who is in really good shape..It makes it much easier to get there number as well.

Going to the gym, and working and eating properly makes a drastic difference on how people treat you in general. DRASTIC.

Why don't women find you attractive? Do you think its purely based upon your looks or maybe does it have something to do with the lousy attitude you have? It seems to be a pattern whereby men who don't lift a finger to take care of themselves or make an effort to dress well get all upset when women don't want to talk to them.
Thats exactly what it is. I was the same way. Alot of men are too lazy to take care of themselves. They drink soda and eat mcdonalds everyday, play videogames all day, dress like a slob and then get an attitude when women want nothing to do with them.

That's right. A man has to put effort in that area as well when it comes to dating, hooking up, scoring, etc. Have a decent job, drive a decent car, take care of his presentation, and so on.

do you think the male sex drive is a curse?

No it's a beautiful thing. In fact you wouldn't be here without it.

Elliot Spitzer being an example. I know of no woman that would risk her neck like that.

I gree with what the other guy said about just using self-control.

Its also a curse if your like me and women just don't find you attractive.

I'm sure SOMEBODY finds you attractive. YOU probably just don't notice THEM.

All it is a burden to bear because it doesn't do me any good whatsoever. I wish there were drugs on the market that could get rid of my sex drive but I know they will never exist because the male sex drive is a lucrative market.

Actually there is a plant that can help kill a man's sex drive. It's called Hops. You can buy it as a tea at the healthfood store. Google herbs that decrease Testosterone. If you use those it can help kill your sex drive. Just be sure to research the side effects too.

Women always control the sex and they do all the choosing. Men have no say or control in this matter. Most women are sexually apathetic and they use our own desperation against us. I admit, I envy their ability to control themselves.
As a woman, I can tell you WE ARE NOT SEXUALLY APATHETIC. Take a look at this thread in this very forum
What traits do you find sexy in a man?

LOL! Some men can make a bundle. They are called cross dressers OR gay prostitutes. So this isn't only for women to make a bundle off guys. Yeah you're right men's hormones really are a curse.
