I'm asexual, but for a guy to look okay in my eyes (as in doesn't make me turn away going "I can't look at that..") I say medium.
slim as hell looks sickly and looks like if I try to hug them they will shatter.
Muscular means veins popping up and showing and no neck...
I hate seeing veiny people with no neck... I don't even like seeing veins in general lol

I DON'T CARE THEY'RE SEXY ANYWAY THEY'RE BUILT!!! Of course too much muscle and they'll start looking like 'the thing' from Fantastic 4 lol. But I prefer well conditioned its just enough muscle and not too much. either way I love the male anatomy :D

Wait...what's the difference between "well conditioned" and "medium?"
A whole lot of muscle is grody.
Muslce, yet slim, so that he's strong, but can still rock well-fitted suits whithout looking like he'll rip the seams.

I prefer drawings of men who are medium-built or slim. Extreme muscles gross me out both in art and in real life.

Muscles are good. If I hug a guy or grab his arm or give him a joking punch and all i feel is fat *shudder* Bug turn off there. I voted Hypermuscle because you didnt have what I would call Bulk or something like that. Is those guys that have very wide shoulders and thick chest. Body builders tend to look all sorts of out of wack in their competitions and photos because they are posing and purposely bulging out their muscles. Thats the point of what they are going for. In real life they USUALLY arnt that disproportional, I know because I had a friend that was working on becoming a bodybuilder. In normal clothes yes you could tell he was very muscular but he worked hard at not having the gross vein look. But anyway. I like a man with some muscle for A)when I hug him I dont fear I will break him B)It may sound really weird but having a muscular man around me makes me feel more girly (idk why just does) And to me it shows that he takes care of himself. He is active and like to workout and do things! Not sit around and play video games inside all day.... But if he doesnt have a 6pack and he is well proportioned, meaning he doesnt look like a triangle (all uperbody and chicken legs) Its all good to look at to me. lol

I like muscles, but not like.. body builder muscles. That looks effing disgusting, it'd be like dating some sort of genetically mutated fleshy rock. I love to cuddle and love to be cuddled. I don't wanna cuddle with something that looks like a vainy turd, and when he hugs me I don't want to be freaking squeezed to death because his muscles contracted slightly and I got caught somewhere in the mass of steroidy flesh *rant over*. Lol yeah anyway.. I prefer muscles from gained from strenuous workouts. Nice and toned, but not overly toned.

Too much muscle creeps me out. It's why I don't like looking at DC and Marvel comics. All that muscle just scares me. :S
I like men that have muscle, but not too much. I guess they would be lean.

I'm medium build. I have a lot of muscle built up from playing football in high school and working out but also a bit of body fat over that. Kid of built like Tom Hardy (Bane from Dark Knight Rises.) I hate the fat on me but my girlfriend says it makes me look hot and that I'm cuddly. She gets mad when I overwork myself at the gym since she doesn't want me losing my "love chub." I don't get it, I thought being lean and fit and muscular was a good thing. She said I'd look too intimidating and I told her "well, that's the point."

Well you should know to a Girl intimidation is not the look of choice. To you a guy it is an important thing. To alot of women out there they rather have someone who they can hug and it not be like hugging a brick wall so there is a little give and also we love to use you guys as pillows...rock hard pillows arnt the most comfortable things lol. I hope that shed a little bit of light on your question lol

Yeah that makes sense. My problem is when I see even a little fat, all I see is fat. It could be muscle. For every moment I'm not gaining strength someone else is. I'm old fashioned in that I should be able to protect my woman and provide for her. I give her love when she wants it, I cook for her, I cuddle with her and in return she basically treats me the way other guys say they wish their girlfriends treated them. I just want to look good doing it. As for the pillow thing...yeah, she has her spot right between my right bicep and chest. She even moves my arm into position sometimes if I'm already lying down. It's kinda cute.

Oh yes I understand that. I have that as well, I like to workout and everytime I think I see improvement I find myself being like D: theres still fat everywere! But anyway, its not old fashioned that you want to protect your girl. Its how men are hardwired and is something about them that is look upon in a good light. And see what you just said there about what you do and what shes does is exactly whats a real relationship should be like lol. And ya I understand that. You want to be the best for her for thats what she deserves lol. Yep! thats the perfect spot! hahaha!

I don't really... Well, it depends on who it is. As in what fits the particular male. Like, Sniper from Team Fortress 2 would look weird if he was totally buff and shit, but the sorta skinny, lanky look suits him perfectly. Sorta feminine boys look pretty good skinny and some men in their 40s look good with a sorta chubby stomach (maybe from drinking too much beer?) so yeah... depends.

As a general principle, I don't like people that are too muscular. Muscles should be the result of real and natural exercise, not hours spent in a gym.

I voted slim, but it doesn't mean I wouldn't date someone well-conditioned.
Only thing that is ghastly to me is hyper muscularity. Like bodybuilders. I just find it very disgusting. And I'm kinda afraid of them, too. :la:

It's the best when the guy is slim AND well-conditioned. If you know what I mean. Just a little tiny thing that proves that he cares of how his body looks. Well this sounded weird.... :la: Killar14 said it just right: '' I'd prefer if there were a little bit of muscle that you can't really see. I don't like it when men have those big muscles. Slim is good enough for me''

In general I prefer it when a guy has developed muscle through their work (dancers, martial artists, manual labor, etc) as opposed to a body builder or someone who just goes to the gym a LOT.

But really, so long as they enjoy snuggling and can pick me up, body type isn't a huge deal to me.
