This is for the MEN on PeerTrainer

I know there are very few of you....but how many believe physical attraction is over-rated? I think physical attraction and physical beauty is very important -- as is inner beauty, intelligence, etc.

The shaving thread started this ..... so as a 2nd question - how do you feel about women who do NOT shave their legs?

beauty fades, changes, evolves. it's all relative.

yes, physical attraction is very important. It is what initially attracts me to someone. I like a woman that takes care of herself to keep herself looking nice. I like women that get their nails done, wax, shave, workout and maintain themselves. It shows that they care about their appearance.

I would have a problem with my girlfriend if she didn't shave her legs. I would feel like I was laying in bed with a man!

to the op: way to go! get the pt community to gang up on me. i am not gross or unattractive or even very hairy-my legs do not look like an animal! what i do to take care of my appearance may not include the same things in your routine, but it does not reflect a dirtiness or indicate that i neglect myself.

there are a lot more men here than you might think. I'm glad that someone is posing questions for the guys. I think smooth legs are great, and I would honestly not be thrilled about someone who did not. That said, a woman who has confidence and kindness, warmth- those truly are the most important things. If a woman did not shave her legs, that would be part of the overall whole, and fairly low down on the list. In fact, if a woman was too obessed with her appearance- that would be a turn off. The most important thing for me is attitude.

I agree, there are a lot of guys on here. In my groups anyway. I don't like a woman to be obsessed but shaving is a requirement. Shoot me. It's a personal preference.

Just want to preface that I am female. I think men like what they like and a woman is either a fit or not - legs, hair, face, skin color, hair color, bubbly or serious personalities, athletic, curvy, androgynous. Everyone has their preference and looks and personality and attitude play a part in that. And women like what they like and a man is either a fit or not, but more often than not a woman will try to make that man fit what she wants rather than letting them be who they are. I'm guilty of trying to mold a man as well as trying to twist myself in knots to fit a man's mold. It has been a long time in learning to allow myself to BE and allow a man to BE and appreciating it all in its glorious differences!

Not everyone is gonna be attractive to everyone else.

There's no absolute definition of "beauty" but everyone has that thing that makes the opposite sex (my only point of reference is being hetero) either masculine or feminine. I think that being who you (male or female) are and being true that will attract the person who is attracted to what you have to offer - regardless of shaved, waxed, plucked, manicured, etc. If one chooses not shave (face, pits, legs, chest or back) then fine, but trying to convince someone that they're superficial because they do/don't/like/don't like is trying to say that their preference is wrong and should be something else.

Thank you, men, for being honest and up front about what you find attractive and not. I think fostering this type of honest dialog is important and revealing. I hope that you continue to share. I personally find it fascinating.
