Men with back hair and perfection

Since we're discussing bald men, I wanted to ask this too - I was hanging out with a few friends and one of them exclaimed - "I would never date a guy with hair on his back!" The first thing I thought was, what...are you perfect? You don't have an ounce of cellulite? No wonder she is still alone. What is the big deal about back hair? Who cares? Does a smooth back translate into a kind human being?

people have preferences. i don't care what a person looks like if we are intellectually compatible, but some people want a partner who fits their needs physically. read the threads about leg shaving for an eye opener on the subject! i don't shave and some people responded as if i said i had never bathed or had any level of hygiene. to each his/her own...

My boyfriend shaves his back. I remember seeing that movie about that guy who goes to get his chest hair waxed - he was hilarious. to answer your question, media, media media. They tell us what the ideal look is, and we buy it.

only some do. let's not group all of us into the catagory of those who are easily influenced and prefer to follow the herd! when i was in my 20's, my physical preferences were much more pronounced than they are now. basically, if a guy is mellow, nice and respectful and polite, that's enough for me.

I'm weird. I actually LIKE back hair. Like a manly man or something.

I agree with 11:18 body hair on men is attrative. It's masculine and I love it. However, I would never choose to be or not be with a man because of his body hair. In the long run it makes no difference.

I once said I would never date a man with back hair, then I met my boyfriend and fell in love with him, and oops he has back hair.! what can you do? I don't even notice the hair now-it's just a part of him. Am I a jerk for saying that at one time? For feeling that way? Probably. But there are plenty of people who have said "I would never date a fat girl" and very few people chide them for it. Everyone has their preferences, and opinions do and can change, and you can't control who you fall in love with. He may have back hair but he treats me like gold!

Hair pants

Okay, anecdote from a massage therapist...

Men are aware that this is a pet peeve for a lot of women and some will blow thousands of $ on laser treatments or go into yoga contortions trying to shave it. Now the funny part is when I get someone who is very densely hairy all over - except for that lasered back. From a distance of 10 feet, it looks like he has left his trousers on. I call this phenomenon "hair pants".

Back hair is a sure sign of high testosterone and virility! At least thats what my husband tells me! Seriously, he wanted to wax it but I told him how much I love him and EVERYTHING about him, including his back hair. Be comfortable with who you are! That is the most attractive thing about any man or woman. After all, we come in all shapes and sizes and opionions and preferences. Viva la difference!
