I'm guessing that's one Swedish Viking. Looks fine to me.

It looks like you have a little too much fat in your upper body.

Edit: I like Brad Pitt's body type.

What if a mans body looked like this, was a little more toned, but he had grey chest hair? Would that be a turn off?

His body was better than it looks like on this picture.

I'm not generally obsessed with bodies anyway. I'm more of a face person; well, as long as the body is acceptable, but I'm very forgiving in this area.

That'd be fine, even great, considering I'm not "toned" myself. As far as the gray chest hair, I've been into much older men my entire life, I like salt-n-pepper in all its forms and everywhere, but I'm more the exception than the rule...

Again, I would focus more on his brain than his body. Although 6'4 is to tall for me. I don't want some skyscraper looming over me all the time. I'm 5'5 btw.

I dated a 6'4 guy once. He towered over me, I felt like a dwarf in comparison to him. I'm 5'1...

There's a difference between staying in shape and bulking up to the extreme. 200lbs of muscle on a 5'4" frame is pretty extreme. And worse, he's using it to intimidate people. I'm not really sure how you can justify that - maybe you're suffering from the same problem. I don't know you and I'm not a psychologist but your ability to blind yourself to such an extremity and to grossly twist what I said combined with what appears to be a grudge against women speaks volumes.

Anyone who enjoys intimidating people has got some issues they need to sort out which is going to turn most women off. It's pretty obvious this is not just a case of a guy staying in shape for his own well-being because there's no reason why that would get so many negative comments and turn so many women off.

However, I never said that he was doing this for women. I actually said just the opposite. He's doing it because it gives him false confidence which he perceives as genuine confidence. But he asked for a female perspective on what was influencing his ability to "find someone". So I gave him my perspective. The OP brought up the topic of women and relationships.

I had a perverted boss once that was 6'3 and he towered over me, it was very gross. It was like I was the sun and he was all 9 planets orbiting me, what a nightmare that was. He was literally everywhere all the time. I named him giraffe because he would poke his head out in the most random of places that others could never reach, surprising me. LOL...Maybe that's why I really don't like to date tall men.

Okay, I'm coming back and editing because I realize how it sounds....I can't help laughing. I seriously meant he would stick his head/face out above book shelves and cubicles, etc.

There are some benefits to be petite and date a tall guy, you have to admit.
