Are men with muscular arms really attractive?

Postby TonyR » July 8th, 2006, 1:08 pm

My wife brought this up to me the other night that she likes me to have some muscles in my arms because it is very attractive, and that most women like that!! I thought that I had already had some farely good size "guns", but she keeps telling me that I need to work on them! :weightlift: I just don't want to mess with my weight loss right now, but I am sure I will lift some weights soon, what do you all think about it?? :weightlift:

Some muscles are nice, but not the "I can't put my arms down" muscles. LOL! I don't like mens arms that look like womens arms. :).. but I think it's all a personal preference anyway. :)

I think that just nice trim arms are good. I don't like them really cut and chiseled. To me, that looks "puffed up".

I like the "swimmer" build...broad shoulders, defined muscles...but not "incredible hulk" build. But like fluffynomore said, it's all a matter of personal preference. :) And heck, I'm not about to pick at my hubby, I have too much to work on myself :)

I'm with the others. I like some defined muscles, but not huge, where you can't fit 'em in sleeves.

My husband has pretty decent sized arm muscles and I have to tell you I find it quite sexy. He grew up as very thin and lanky but after he went to college he started to work on his muscles and has done a great job becoming defined but not muscle head like.

I love a man with broad sholders, thick arms and a nice chest. Its kind of a security thing with me. Noone will mess with a woman who is on the arms of a muscluar man.

okay, so my husband is pretty funny..hehe

You have some pretty big guns but they aren't muscular! :hide: Don't hit me honey...(actually I told him what I was going to write and he laughed with me) So don't send me hate mail saying I am mean to my

I just want to see a more defined set of arms, that's all. :oops: He has had them before and he knew how much I loved them!

With that said I'm with you Fluffy, I want him to be able to put his arms by his side! lol...they look like monkeys when they get that big.

i've dated guys who were gangly, guys who had fat arms, and guys who were ripped. i hate to sound shallow *cough* but i find slightly muscular arms to be hot.

actually, as a full package give me the footie player build any day. but uhm... don't tell my boyfriend that.

which reminds me! tomorrow is Italy vs. France! GO ITALY!!!

Love clearly defined muscles in the chest/arms. I think it justs sends out the signal of strength and security.
