Are women only interested in hunks

    In yesterday's Times, Matthew Syed, one of their sports writers, complained that in his area of south London, there are large numbers of professional rugby players and this makes it difficult for ordinary people like him to get a girlfriend. He described how he was chatting to a girl at a party and she suddenly stopped talking to him because Lawrence Dallaglio walked in. He said that all the women present spent the rest of the evening gawping at LD and ignoring the other men.

    His interesting thesis was that the more tarty females chase after footballers, but professional women, of the sort he's interested in, go for rugby players because they are much more intelligent than soccer players and hugely muscular. He even said that the likes of a Harlequins second team player will be followed in the street by an admiring group of females desparate to mate with him.

    Ladies, is this true, is the fashion now for muscular hunks?

    If I were chatting to a girl at a party I'd be confident I could keep her attention even if a 7 ft potato smelling of beer and sounding like a '50's newsreader walked in

    Never noticed a bevvy of babes/groupies in my rugby clubhouse during my playing career! :smile:

    The only hunk most of them are interested in is the one in your wallet. Re Bernie Eccleston and Paul Daniels.

    One would hope that it's not so much that they're only interested in hunks but rather that anybody who walks into a party is going to be more interesting than a non-entity London media luvvy, hence Mr Syed's difficulties.

    Mr Syed is a recent Commonwealth Games gold medallist and an Oxford graduate in PPE, so he generally feels that he can hold the attention of any non air head female for a minute or so.

    I think (some) women have always liked muscular hunks.

    There's nothing wrong with looking and admiring anyway. I can admire a bloke's physique too... but not in a gay way :smile:

    I remember being in a bar in Boston, US when a Celtic's (basketball) player came in and all eyes fell on him... but then he was around 7 foot tall!

    That doesn't mean he's not dull as dishwater though!

    Most women these days only seem interested in the size of the "hunk" in your boxers !:smile:

    Hmmm but he might have won his medal in one of those girly sports where judges award points rather than something sensible. (Now you're going to say it was bear wrestling or something similar.)

    Does a degree in PPE mean that one is interesting?

    On the other hand, some women are far more interested in a man they can get on well and have a decent conversation with.

    Too many muscles, and I assume a certain amount of mental dullness and vanity.

    So all the effort in trying to be a decent shag is wasted then?

    That can't be entirely true. I used to work at a firm where they had an articled clerk (as they were then) who had an Oxbridge first in Law and was drop dead gorgeous. In fact more attractive than Debbie McGee. She was knocking off Paul Daniels before he was famous so he must have had something else. Maybe.

    No, it was table tennis.

    There are plenty of ladies around so I expect they like all types of male whether muscular or otherwise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
