Wow. I wish more girls hated muscles. I would definitely have a girlfriend right now. :P

At your age that is a depressing delusion to be under. My thought is you could find any number of reasons not to have a girlfriend but can you talk to girls?

They are a delicious treat. Ate quite a few on my recent Belgium trip.

Definitely. to be honest, I have more friends who are girls than I do guys. It was mainly meant as a joke. I don't want to date a girl who can't accept me for my skinny self. That would mean she's too shallow to look deeper into my character. I'm just waiting for the right one and the right time.

I would say guys talking about guys is weird, just to be snarky. But my brst friend has been talking about the guys he likes for so long that i'm well-trained.  8)

It's weird in a different way. But one I'm used to I guess. The lingo is certainly more fun.  ;D

Could go down a serious route of the cultural and social expectations boys have upon girls but we're not gonna go there this late :P neither time nor the place.

Funny.

I'm used to talk about girls, since most of my close friends are straight males, but my gay and girl friends have me used to talk about men.
So I don't find anyone talking about anything being particularly weird.
What intrigues me most is what men talk about between men, when discussing someone else, be it male or female. I always prick my ears when I overhear some male dialogue in the street.

But yeah, ultament, I think we had that conversation before, didn't we? I was also on the side of skinny men. I'll pick a skinny guy over a chubby guy any day, and when it comes to muscle, I only tolerate the dry, wiry muscle that comes from strenuous activity like rock climbing. Rock climbers are skinny-muscly if that makes sense.
Gym muscle I find rather repulsive. I also find it unattractive on the account of it being acquired by such boring means.
I mean, it's all fine and good for a man who has no time to spend a few hours a week pushing some steel to stay fit, or to go to the gym in parallel to his activity (like swimming, running, etc) to have a more direct way of building muscle. But the guys who spend their time at the gym to sculpt their muscles and image toward a certain ideal, I can't comprehend. Pushing steel has got to be the most boring way to obtain muscle. I'd never want a boyfriend who spend his free time in a gym.
In my mind it's totally different to spending your time in a dojo, a pool, a rock gym/crag, a running track... These are sports with side effects, you aim for a mastery, a talent, and you gain physical strength through an activity. In the case of rock climbing you become ripped because said activity is so mind-boggingly  addictive.
You become something physically as a side effect of your sport, whereas gym men do their activity to become what they are. I see steel muscle, I immediately assume ego, vanity issues, intense awareness of the eyes of others.
Which doesn't mean these can't be friendly people, normal and generous, with passions on the side, or even normal egos. It just means that my libido goes on a holiday.  ;D

Exactly. And, when they're a bit older, and slacken up on the gym, get bored or complacent, it is so easy for those muscles to become flab and beer-bellies. See it happen so often.

Muscle and flab can of course go hand in hand....muscle earned from good hard work translates in to a voracious appetite and so the muscle is all there and can do everything it is meant to do.....it's just incognito  ;D

The future Mrs Peat is not a fan of muscley guys. Which is annoying, as I play rugby, so I need that muscle for a reason.

Fortunately for her/unfortunately for me, I cannot gain muscle to save my life. My build is fairly slim, my metabolism - particularly when I'm going to the gym regularly - is like Formula One. And what I'd gained, I lost after injuries.

Anyway, to hit up the original comment that sparked this - there's a ridiculous amount of girls out there who don't really care if a boy has muscles. Ridiculous. Being skinny is no thang.

As for weights - sometimes it's boring. Sometimes it's pretty cool. It's just you, working through crap, with a nice sense of satisfaction at the end. But yeah, there are a few negative traits about gym bunnies often mentioned by women, and I'd be lying if I said I'd never seen evidence of them.

Wax, Vin and Kelsier disagree.  ;D

I'm on the wiry, slim side too. I can't gain muscle but don't want (or need) to, so that's okay. :) Kung Fu and Rock Climbing are my sports of choice. (Not that I have time for any sports at all since I have a little son and a full time job...  :-\)
