The answer lies where you are. If you go to a cake factory, don't be surprised if you find a lot of people that like cake.

Muscles are okay. I really want a great personality and decency to back it up.

Yes, really.

One thing I have noticed is that, females at the gym give a lot of attention to muscular guys and I always catch some female watching me when I am doing my weights, even when I am not trying to impress anybody.

I just wanted to understand why so many women are attracted to muscular men? I mean, a lot of muscular guys at my gym are total douches, have no personalities, very self-centered, I even think some may be closet gays.

Is it because women feel secure when they see a muscular man or what?
Sorry had to laugh .. As a female who lifts weights I have noticed this myself... all these guys are just watching me... I only notice it on certain excercises where i'm actually outlifting them or close to lifting the same weight they are

ha-ha.. when I'm at the gym and I notice a man who is shaped/muscular I am checking their form - not how attractive they are.. My friends are the same way - weight lifters and competitors... they watch and note form/exercise.

One thing i always check on a "muscular" man is their body proportions. I have to really chuckle 90% of the time at it .. Just my opinions though.

I have noticed gym bunnies (the girls that come in all dolled up with full jewelry and make up on and barely walking on the treadmill) checking out the guys in a type of meat market look. Good luck to them .

I enjoy watching people lift weights as it has given me new direction to take my own work out.

Well defined muscles on a guy indicate masculinity...something that would attract a straight female. This isn't rocket science ya know!

I think the reason more and more women don't find muscles a huge turn on is because we live in a society where brains are starting to outweigh brawn.

If another man does have intentions of approaching you in some sort of threatening way, he would probably wait until He-man is not anywhere in sight...
Well, actually even when i have had boyfriends guys still try to pick me up even if they know i have a boyfriend. Even if i tell them im taken they will be say sleazy things, try to date and me enourage me to lie or break up with my boyfriend. This has happened to me plenty of times. Of course they do it when the bf is not around. I am the type who goes to my boyfriend when i can't handle social situations like this, and i expect that he will take the initiative to make sure it doesn't continue. Having a boyfriend who has the physical strength to handle other men who are like that is a huge benefit to me, as he will do something physical to stop the sleaziness from other predators. Men with physical strength have the confidence to go with to handle these situations. In my experience slim men tend to back off, or worse only say that they will do something but never end up doing it because they know within themselves that they will loose the physical fight.

Your right there are women who prefer brains to abs, Hell i love brains to! Of course i would not be with a physical strong man if he had an ugly attitude. But at the end of the day, i am not physially strong and need a partner who is, as that is what i personally lack.

I would only drop 'em for a girl iff I really like her and she also digs me a lot in return.

Say if my date teases another guy or flirts with him first but refuses to acknowledge him when he comes over....not cool. Not every girl is worth getting into a fight with someone else you know nothing about.

Oh yeah of course. I'm not petty in that sense. Only when i feel that its really in appropriate from the guy should i expect my partner to step in. The example you provided isn't the same situation i was referring to.
