Size and Attracting the Opposite Sex

I read a very interesting post on diminishing returns on weightlifting on the rooshv forum: https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-32580.html
 
I'd be curious to hear from other bodybuilders if they've ever been too big (to the opposite sex).
 
I can say (as a natty) that I get the most attention at 190lbs at 5'11 and around 15 or 16 percent body fat, compared to when I went sub 180lbs at around 11 or 12 percent body fat.
 
My opinion, formed by many women I've dated, is that abs are overrated for the most part and only younger women go mad for them. When we meet women in bars or via tinder they see us clothed and cant really tell the difference between 10 percent body fat or 16. In fact, slightly higher body fat can make us fill out clothes a lot better.
 
Anyway, before I ramble, i'd like to see what other people think about size and attracting the opposite sex.

I'm still hearing women cream over the likes of Tom Hardy and Chris Hemsworth.

Not having that. Do you have a link to a source study on this?

I think most young chicks prefer boyband lookalikes (skinny wretches with abs). I'd say older chicks prefer more mature men with a good build.

My Mrs used to force me to sit thru that 'take me out' and it used to make me chuckle when some well built lad would come out to a fully lit bank of women, then they'd show the fact that he had to train to look that way in the next round and 80% would then red light the poor fvcker for training lol

I learnt to play the diet aspect down when talking to a date. Especially mentioning cutting. I think dieting seen as a feminine thing so it makes us look girly when we mention it.

Men and woman 'think' they know what they like but at the end of the day it is inbuilt in us.

Woman really want someone who will protect them and keep them safe who can provide for them (food and shelter).

Men really want someone who can provide them with offspring and nurture them well.

Modern TV and fashion mags have distorted things. The 'providing ' bit that woman want has morphed into cash and bling things (admittedly not all woman) and blokes are brainwashed into thinking we want supermodel partners (again not all men).

Stripped back and when it really comes down to it, we all tend to revert back to our prime evil tendencies.

I have observed that cocky/arrogant men are the most successful at attracting women.

Something I used to see loads of when I worked at the gym, was women telling me not only did they not find Bodybuilder levels of muscle 'not attractive' ..but they would use words like repulsive, ugly, and most often, disgusting.

...and then, almost every time, when in the presence of a disgusting, ugly, repulsive bodybuilder in decent shape, these ladies would turn into a giggling hot mess.

I suppose it's no different from some of us guys saying we don't like the bimbo glamour model look? Although while guys might say it's not their preference, we don't pretend to be disgusted by it?

No, Not that Dr Z.  Please don't bother PM'ing me for 'Price Lists'  You have the wrong guy.

Maybe I'm an exception but I avoid bimbo women like the plague.
