Like moths to a flame, well defined abs draw girls in.These days more than ever men are flocking to the gyms in an attempt to look fit. Some men do it because of health, competition, other because they like the way they look, however there are some men that work out to attract girls.
They work out numerous areas though one of major focus is always the abs. The reason? Because girls like abs but why do girls like abs?
Magazine racks are filled with men that look like models and have 6 packs abs. Billboards on the way home have male underwear models with chiseled chest and abs. Television and movies are no different. For a woman that is exposed to that kind of advertisements on a frequent basis, it begins to paint a picture in that woman’s mind.
The picture that those advertisements are what men are suppose to look like. Since that becomes the norm in her mind, her taste in men drifts towards that image and reflects in the kind of men that she will find attractive.
One of the roles of a man in a relationship is protector. This is a role that has been passed onto men from centuries dating back to our cavemen ancestors. One of the opinions in regards to the protector role is that the larger or more muscular a man is, the stronger that man is.
This in turn means that he is more capable of protecting a woman. Though the threats women face are not as grave as it was in primitive time, there is still a subconscious desire to feel protected.
So men with abs are seen as stronger men than a man without the muscle definition of a 6 pack, and women like that. Does it actually mean that a man with abs will be a better protector for women? Of course not but her subconscious may still perceive that as true.
A man with abs works hard, to gain and maintain it especially as he gets older. This is a show of hard work, and dedication to his body. For some women this can be translated as a man that likes to take care of himself and his looks.
These are attractive traits to a woman. Though obviously men that do not have abs can also be capable of all of these traits, and men that work out can be lazy slobs. But if a woman were to walk by 2 men down the street, and see one man that works out and one that clearly doesn’t work out. She will be more inclined to believe the man that works out has those traits.
Even though girls like abs, it is not the only reason she will be attracted to a guy. There are lots of other reasons such as confidence, charm, humor and much more. Having abs is only one of the many ways that girls like guys. So if you don’t have abs, don’t fret.
If you do decide to work out in an attempt to get abs, do it for yourself rather than another person. To perform a task for the approval of another person will come off as needy and approval seeking. These are unattractive qualities that will eventually lead to you not being truly happy.
