Calling all Paleo Men! What do you find more attractive in women: healthy curves or an athletic build?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 18, 2011 at 2:42 AM

This question was in-part inspired by the recent post about Paleo women being too hard on themselves and their body composition.

So Paleo men, what do you think? Does a woman with a 6-pack and bulging biceps make you swoon, or is feminine softness more your thing?

Thanks for your input!

P.S. I do not mean to exclude women who are attracted to other women in this post. I'd love to hear your opinions as well. I simply formatted the question the way I did for clarity purposes.

I was going to reply and say Raquel Welch in that movie poster would be my ideal build, but someone beat me to it.

@meredith: no resumes needed - conformity or a lack of thereof to all the criteria i stipulated can be surmised just by looking (and it would also be rather nice if she knew what was the capital of finland or who wrote "in search of lost time")

I read it as your usual hilarious self, lady. I think.. I think that if you like what you see, and if your hubs likes it, there's your measurement :)

Well, no one can say you don't know what you want. Do you also request a resume ? :) Up vote for certainty.

I reread tha rethought and though - crap that might sound weird. I just want something against which to measure myself - even thought I'm married and generally consider myself invisible. :)

I prefer toned but not too muscular. Curves are nice but not necessary.

Something like Allison Stokke: calling-all-paleo-men!-what-do-you-find-more-attractive-in-women:-healthy-curves-or-an-athletic-build?

I appreciate women who scrunch their noses up, laugh uncontrollably at inappropriate times, and are sweet, curious, curiously sweet, or sweetly curious.

(healthy curves or an athletic build are both appreciated, as long as she can't bench press me for a set of ten)

not higher than 25% BF

clearly defined waist

'athletic' enough to run 100 m at least within 20 seconds

think of Rachel Welch in the movie "One Million Years B.C."

intelligence and femininity are above body composition to me. nothing fake, including perfume and makeup, definitely no surgical "enhancements." beyond that, I like skinny yet healthy. I don't really care about curves or muscles so long as she is happy with herself.

Definitely attracted to athletic women, but bulging biceps, not so much! Big muscles cross the line into masculinity. Curves and overall shape are mare important than athleticism, though. The all-important waist-to-hip ratio is key.

It's amazing how many different things factor into attractiveness, some very subtle. For anyone interested in the subject, I highly recommend "Survival of the Prettiest", which talks about evolutionary reasons for what people find physically attractive.
