How important is body shape ?

raffi raffi
I know everyone likes different things, but a lot of females and males out there are very very self conscious about their shape and size. So, how important are these features to you? What do you find most attractive? (choose as many as you wish to!)

I've never allowed my preferences get in the way of anything, but fortunately my husband fits into all of them!

I think as long as someone is happy in their skin that makes a huge statement. I do have preferences, but they're not hard and fast rules. You can miss out on some wonderful relationships because you're closing yourself off through your preferences.

I love my Hunny just the way he is because of who he is. He has fluctuated in weight but never to an extreme on either end. It is fine to have preferences but none should be a deal breaker if you love someone.

I am VERY into long hair on any gender, but body type and hair color don't matter so much to me.

I'm too much of a sapiosexual to notice bodies, actually. Despite my own disdain of my face and figure, I really do not sexually notice other people's. I get excited when geek-talk and intelligent conversation is thrown about, though.

I know that C is physically attractive, but I get hot and bothered when we start talking and I catch his scent.

Kind of weird, really ...

I don't have any specific preferences for any specific features, though that's not because appearance means nothing to me. I just think that personality and how people carry themselves has a lot to do with what makes them attractive. Certain features go very well together, but I can't say that I care for any one appealing combination over another.

VERY important for me, I have a very specific body type I'm attracted to and I don't find myself straying from it much. Ultra thin, slender and toned, pretty much that or it's a no-go for me. I hate to say how picky I am but I'm just flat out not attracted to much else. Hair/eye color and height all depend on the person, those aren't very important, but body type is super important for me. Too much muscle? Deal breaker. Slightly chubby? Deal breaker. Skinnyfat? Ultra deal breaker. Barrel chest? Deal breaker. Naturally wide? Deal breaker. Even body hair I'll tolerate to a wider degree than body thickness. I'm sure I sound like a huge prude, but it's just what I'm attracted to, I can't change that. I still find plenty of people cute who have ALL sorts of body types, but for a potential partner, I'm so so so picky :/

My partner is really muscular, and I love his look.

For girls I like skinny. Not anorexic skinny, but Taylor Swift skinny, which is probably still below healthy BMI.

I'm attracted to so much more than a physical type and thank goodness I'm not limited or stuck with that. My preferences are more for issues of grooming, carriage, communication, etc. If I'm turned on intellectually by someone or by their personality, I usually find myself drawn to them & appreciating what they have, not focusing on what they don't. I'm more inclusive than exclusive. I find so many people of all different sizes, shapes & colors to be beautiful & attractive, that it's hard to find a common denominator to do with looks!

I'm fairly fit and athletic so I mostly date women of the same type, but I'm not picky at all. I'd rather be with a women with a few extra pounds who was confident and a blast to be around than a neurotic model.

I'm not super picky. I do have preferences, but I won't rule someone out because they don't fit into them...they're just initially what draws my eye to someone. I like my guys on the smaller side, I'm short, so I like short. I like dark hair (though as a teenager I'd drool over anything blonde haired and blue eyed!)...hair really doesn't matter as long as its clean, extremely underweight or overweight aren't physically attractive to me, the latter mostly because it generally comes with health problems, stamina problems, limitations, etc, more so than appearance wise.

I'm a tall lady and I like for my partner to be a bit taller, but I'm very flexible with that since it's kinda rare. I don't have a preference when it comes to weight, just so long as there aren't any health issues involved. I love dark features and dark hair! Meow.

Haircolour and height never bothered me. As for weight, I don't care about the size or shape as long as you're healthy.

I can find most types attractive. From scrawny to overweight. If a guy is big/stocky/extra weight but still is healthy and reasonably in shape, I can find that very sexy. The one thing I don't really like is flabby overweight with lots of cellulite.

I don't really care about height or hair color. In general I usually find more guys attractive who have dark brown or black hair, but it's certainly not a deal breaker.

Body shape doesn't really matter to me. I'm not really all about appearance.. If the guy has a great personality, that's what I'm all about.

I tend to be attracted to lean, tall, slightly muscular guys, but I never want to date someone with that body type, as I'm pretty chubby IMO, and I want my guy to be bigger than me. I am the little spoon! Luckily the current Mr. Silverwinds is to my liking ^^ I also tend to care a lot more about the personality than the looks.

well being a fat person i honestly feel like i cant have any sort of ideal body type, and for the most part dont. if i find the person attractive i just do: skinny, fat, fit, tall or short. It seems though that my preference seems to lean toward more fit or chubby people who are taller than myself.

Some important and others not so...depends a lot on personality.

I used to think I had a preference. At this point, I have dated men, women, brown-haired, blondes, black-haired, tall and larger built/muscular, naturally extremely thin. And they have all been beautiful to me.

I don't care! There's always something else than appearance that I can't put my finger on that's the real reason I'm attracted to someone.
