Default Are women put off by skinny guys?

I'm a skinny lad and I was wondering is this a turn-off? I mean I know some girls like guys to be teddy bears but is their really any market for us skinny guys? I'm 5'10" and 130 lbs and feel as though I'm not bulky enough for women to have enough faith in me to protect them.

Women besides personality, because we all know looks do play a role in a relationship. What's your stance on skinny guys?

Better than fat, I'd say...

Wish I had your problem and be able to eat as much as I want! Geez, I'm about 123 (and I can weigh more if I don't stop myself) at 5'3"... have hard time imagining 130 on 5'10... that's pretty skinny alright...

Women love skinny guys. Just be sure to lift weights and do push ups so you don't look like a skeleton. With a little meat and muscle on your bones you should do fine with the ladies.

Besides that - No mustaches (those are associated with very naughty men) - No Chili Bowl hair cuts - Cut your fingernails - Brush, floss, and bleach teeth - Keep all of your hair trimmed or flat ironed (only The Jonas Brothers can pull off fro hair) - When in the presence of women don't try too hard because a lot of women are shy and like easy going but assertive guys. If a circle of women don't seem into you then that circle is not right for you. Keep trying until you find the right circle to date from.

You should be fine if you get all that down.

No, I love skinny guys... but I don't like tall guys.
5'10" is tall to me.

That's why I said for him to lift some weights and do some push ups here and there.

I am 5 4 120lbs and don't like skinny guys because I consider myself skinny so two of us walking down the street will make the number 11 and that's not a cool look so yes I do prefer guys with meat on their bones but don't get me wrong the chunkier girls do like the skinny minnie's

hmm I am 6'0 and 190 and most of the guys I go to the gym with are 6'2"- 6'4" and 200- 230lbs and they are in great shape and they could no doubt kick my ass one thing no matter how big you are there is always someone bigger and meaner. But then again one of my friends is 5'6 and he seems to have the biggest ego and it gets him in trouble alot
