There are always at least two topics per day about "what girls like" and "what guys like," as if gender alone decides your preferences. And the Sexperts and Mentors, and all the staff, always answer the same way: ALL PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT IN WHAT THEY PREFER!

I think the really fantastic thing in this case is that EVERYONE HAS DIFFERENT PREFERENCES. Meaning, if you've got a decent personality (or even if you don't!), you are pretty sure to find someone who will like you and be attracted to you the way you are.

All the guys I've ever dated have been pale scrawny white geeks, and I happen to like 'em that way, personally. But my best friend won't even flirt with them if they're not cute and buff and tan.

There's always gotta be someone who has a thing for what you're like...That's what's great about people having different tastes and different personalities. Keep your minds open, people! ;]

I hate it when my friends say, "Oh yer boyfriend isn't cute at all, what do you see in him!?" Well, if everyone like the EXACT same guy then only one girl would have a boyfriend, now isn't that true? No one believes it but looks dont' really matter to me. I've gone out with tall blonde, tan guys, and I've gone out with short, very white and freckly guys. Right now I like a chinese guy that is my height.

WHO CARES!?

it's a pet peeve of mine

I found that many times when girls put down your boyfriend, it is because they are jealous and may even want him themselves!

A lady after my own heart
Nothing better than a scrawny white boy.. my current squeeze is 63kg (don't know what that is is lbs) and a little over 5'5", white as anything (works inside) and has the sweetest little biceps

Ooh, ooh, ooh! Entropie! Cool! This is off-topic, but I started this topic, so here goes:

You live in NZ? My fondest dream is to go there for my honeymoon with whoever and run barefoot with the sheep!!!!! *smirks* Also, sidenote...Have you ever heard of the Mutton Birds?

And back on the topic...

Yeah, scrawny white geek-guys do tend to kick ***...Actually, a friend of mine last year had a shirt that said, laconically enough, "chicks dig scrawny pale guys"...

I need to order that shirt in bulk.

ah, c'mon, what Kiwi hasn't?? The Muttonbirds, world famous in New Zealand.. Did you know, that there are 6 sheep to every New Zealander? hehe we're so outnumbered!

I'm a proud Kiwi, I must say, and also very proud of my fascination with skinny white boys (I almost wish I had a pic of him to post here, you'd see what I mean!)
