In a nutshell, we all have different tastes

Some guys like slim chicks, others will like curvy chicks, others will like athletic...muscular, very muscular...etc; it's the same with women, we all have different tastes.

I have found (at least in my own experience) that women have no idea what they like. I knew one girl back when I was a 130lb rail who said she didn't like big muscly dudes. Then suddenly shes dating this football palyer and is all worshiping his biceps.
My wife said she didn't like ripped guys. I spent a month biking to work and my abs showed up and she was all over me. My wife has also said that she wouldn't like it if I got bigger because then I'd be "too big" but I'm up 30lbs and shes drooling over me.

Edit: just want to ad that my wife isn't the type to sugar coat things or say things to make me feel good about myself - she tells it as it is.

In my experience, and in a short answer. No.


To go a little deeper, when I say no, the no represents many different situations.
I think it pretty much splits into 3 different types, and then the in-betweens.


I've met plenty of girls who say they don't care weather he has big muscles or not, and so no, you wouldn't say they "liked" them.

Rather that they just don't care. This seems to be what allot of the girls I've talked to say.



At the other end, there are the girls who hate guys with big muscles, and go for skinny guys.


And then finally, you have the girls that "think" they like muscular physiques, but then when they show you pictures of people they're referring to, it's Justin Beiber, conner maynard, etc; who definitely wouldn't be classed as muscular.



So there's the couldn't care less-ers, the haters, and the misconception-ers.

And then of course most fall in between.



Of course I'm not saying all girls fall into those 3 categories. Like I said, it's totally personal and allot fall in between with their own specific tastes which borrow from something like the 3 I mentioned.

That's just my experience with it.

The least I've met are those that hate it, and then the majority I've met say they simply don't care, or like a little muscle.



Like 5k said, it's really just a matter of taste, and there are so many different in between variables as is with men.

This is why it makes me laugh when people lift just to attract women, because they put them into a box as though they're all going to love their muscles, and that he'll then be a huge babe magnet.



As for my girlfriend, she couldn't care less about weather I had muscle or not, which is just as well seen as I have none!

I'd say girls are typically more averse to the idea than women, especially when put to the test. For those who truly give a damn either way, that is.

Then again, I would also say - particularly nowadays - that boys are typically more averse to the idea (of *being* big/strong/muscular) than men.

And, furthermore, it seems to me that modern Western society on the whole disapproves (or is taught to...) of just about everything that could be seen as masculine or manly. Or increasingly so, anyhow.


edit: Personal anecdote, fwiw - the missus never gave a damn that I was pretty much underweight (well, a skinny bastard anyway), but she loves the recent changes, so go figure...

Wife didn't when she was younger and dated skinny soccer players. She likes it now.
