We all have a physical type that would be our Prince Charming. I’ve heard people say they don’t, but I think they are just lying to themselves. There’s a physical type that you like above the rest. I’m not saying you might not like other types, but there is a type that you likely consider ideal.
Recently I did a poll, as suggested by one of you guys, to find out if you are your own ideal type. Now, when I wrote the poll, it uses a lot of stereotypes, generalities and focuses entirely on looks. We’re all a little shallow… it’s alright to admit it.
My ideal type is a big thick muscle-head/bodybuilder/powerlifter, dark hair, some body and facial hair, buzzed head, about 5’10 – 6′ tall, around 280 lbs, couple of tattoos and a nice filled out face (not bony). Does that mean if you’re not him, I’d turn you away… hell no. But if I could build my perfect man, he’d have those features.
As you can see, I’m not that, but you can bet that I’m trying my best to get there. Well, except for the height, I like my guys a little bit shorter than me. It makes for better cuddling.
Are you your own type?

- Not quite, but working on it (45%, 29 Votes)
- Not even close, but I could never be my own type (26%, 17 Votes)
- Nope, and I don't want to be. (15%, 10 Votes)

The split on the poll was actually pretty close to what I would have guessed with most people trying to become their ideal type, but not there yet – that includes me.
There are also those that have no interest in becoming their ideal type. For example you have chub and twink chasers, where maybe one guy is my ideal type, but his ideal type is a smooth, twink that weighs 120 lbs. I’m not sure if I’ll ever truly understand this, but if it makes them happy… go for it.
Granted, we do all have an ideal type, but don’t spend your whole life searching for that guy. You’ll likely never find him. Just find guys that make you happy and make your life feel more enjoyable. They should be there to enhance your life, not fill a need of yours. If you’re not happy with yourself first, you’ll never truly be happy with a guy. Spend some time and think about who you are and what you really need/want out of life, go get then, then start to think about finding a man. Until then, you really need to learn how to be single and enjoy it. I know it does suck some times, I’m there with you, but look for the good times.
