If you have a physical "type" of person you generally are attracted to, would you describe your type?
How often do you find yourself attracted to people that are far outside your type, would you describe some examples?

5'11"-6'5"
Chubby/"Big boned"
Dark hair

Those traits are pretty much universal for any man I'm attracted to.

This - but with a shaved head and goatee. Just like it. A lot.

I'm 5'2" and my husband is 6'1" - I like tall guys.

Tall and thin, light haired, feminine, with delicate hands, and not much facial or body hair.
I am attracted to the person I am vaguely-seeing right now, who is not chubby - but far from skinny, and dark haired.

I like tall and strong guys, because I'm a tall and strong girl and I don't want to feel like the more masculin one.

I don't have a physical type, but it has been pointed out to me that I like artistic guys who have father issues and seem a little gay at first.

Not sure why I can't keep a man. :P

for guys, more on the lean/athletic type and tall (6'0 and up). girls, thin and short (5'4 and down)

very very rarely. i can only think of one person that didn't fall within my normal type over the past 6 years, and we only dated for a week.

Well, there is a very specific type I find attractive, yes. Dark haired, a little taller than average, thin but muscular, if that makes sense.

I don't think I ever dated a guy of this "type." And I married someone who is not this type. So it clearly was not a dealbreaker.

5'10"-6'5"
Chubby/"Big boned"
Hair color doesn't matter, though I tend to prefer dark.
Scruff/facial hair
Tanner than me (which is easy, since I'm pretty pale, lol)
Generally has some sorta "issue" since apparently my type is "has issues".

i typically date handsome dark-haired guys. the height varies, lol.

i don't think i necessarily have a "type" because i can pretty much find anyone physically attractive if i need to. (a lot of friends turned relationships that way.) i did date a very tall blonde guy once who wasn't too bright and pretty condescending, but he was hot.

Guys: either small and skinny and hairless (body) or tall and lanky and very broody

Girls: curvy/thick with an indie/wild side

If either are covered in tattoos I am goo.

This reminded me of that. I've dated all kinds. That's physically what I look twice at but I'm what I like to call equal opportunity.

Hippies that bathe regularly.

Occasionally. I have a bit of a fetish for hard-living, pain-loving, tattooed biker chick types.

Oh, and if I were rating women on a scale of 1 to 10, natural red hair is an automatic +3 or so.

I like them to have a fat cock. There is no leeway in this request. I need a fat cock.
My brother fits this requirement.

Seriously. How else am I suppose to say what I am attracted to? I lose attraction when you have a small dick and a shitty personality.

Absolutely. Honesty is the best policy. And why not keep it in the fam?

This goes for men and women - dark hair and eyes, slim-but-not-scrawny, not hairy. I don't care much about height. I think I have more exceptions for women - there are a lot of women I find attractive, and while I think big brown eyes and dark hair is so stunning it's not really a requirement. I'm a lot more choosy when it comes to guys for some reason.

Reddish hair, freckles, big thighs, wide hips, and eyes that draw me in.

My sister embodies all these things. :3

5'6-5'11, broad shouldered, naturally muscular, dark hair, thin lips, big nose, prominent jaw, hairy.

Almost never. Ed Norton, Adam Richman (Man vs. Food) aren't that different but I guess they're as different as I get.

Tomboys(kind of like Iggy from Fried Green Tomatoes) are my Ackles Heel. Women with long hair, girlish faces, boy clothes (with the exception of a bra and maybe underwear). The clothes can be kind of clean cut, ruggid, sportish, intellectual leanin'. Usually they have an interest/hobby that is not gender norm. Ex. My ex was really tech savvy and seemed to know everything about new products that were coming out and why in detail this one was better than that etc. My now gf works as a manager in a hardware store ('nuff said) and knows a hell of a lot more than I know about cars (her dad's influence). Personality can be reg women-esque to somewhat masculine (but not overtly so). My ex definitely had more of a soft butch personality and mannerisms. Now gf's personality is pretty androgynous. And evidently I go for women with a larger chest than myself. I thought my ex's chest was big till I got with my now gf.

But just because those are my special type doesn't mean I don't find femme women hot also. I totally would date someone just as "femme" as me or more. Some of my hollywood crushes are Eva Mendes, Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Portman (dugh)....

2. Everytime I've been to a burlesque show. One time I went to one and I caught myself being so turned on that I forgot my mouth had dropped open and quickly had to close it and swallow. One of my first crushes however was a pretty feminine girl who was my best friend for three years. I seriously had the hots for her.

But my relationship history shows that "tomboys" have been where it's at for me. My mess around HS gf, long hair geeky anime lovin' tomboy. Online friend turned girlfriend, tomboy! Long hair, girly face, played hockey and wrote poems *L*. Potential gf..funny-business-happening- with huge age gap...Played soccer and worked for a UPS. And I already explained the other two.

I find people of all different physiques, races, etc. attractive, but I always end up dating redheads.
