Think about the last time you hooked up with a guy. Did they turn you down, saying, ‘sorry, you weigh 5 pounds too much for me’? I highly doubt it. If they’re in the position to want to hook up with you in the first place, they aren’t going to stop in the act of making out, and accuse you of having love handles.
In my experience, I’ve found that guys are just as insecure when it comes to body image as girls are. They just hide it better. I once had a boyfriend who had a ripped six-pack, but was really insecure about his skinny legs. Did I care? Nope. Not only was I too busy counting all six of his ab muscles to care about his legs, but I liked him for him, and not just his muscles.
Guys are the same way. They’ll stare at your voluptuous bust, or your long legs, or your bootylicious backside; whatever part of you that they find most attractive, and they won’t care that you might have stretch marks, or acne, or whatever it is that you find least attractive.
I know some of you are thinking, ‘well yeah, but aren’t all dudes only attracted to my hot bod’? Sure there are some douche bags who ARE like that, but for the most part I’ve found that guys are attracted to your personality as well as your rockin’ curves. I just hung out with a guy the other week, who told me that he finds intelligence much more sexy than appearance.
Guys are really not as different as we make them out to be. Everyone has insecurities about their body, and boys are no different. So next time you feel nervous while hanging out with a guy you like, just remember that he probably feels the same way!
Does your guy have body hangups that you know about?
