Seriously, what woman in her right mind actually finds this attractive? It looks like someone flipped a cockroach on its back.

I had a girlfriend a few years ago who was really into them.  They were seriously a big deal to her.  Damned if I know why.  

I don't look like a segmented insect, but I have visible abs, and I like them.  I prefer them to a boring old nondescript belly, and they're kind of a sign of the work I've put in to get into good shape.

I have never, ever found overly-muscular men attractive. I like how you described your body. Toned but not out-of-control. It is sexy to notice someone who is taking care in their appearance.

My 6 pack is still covered by a thin and ever thinning layer of fat. I have the feeling that is just the way its going to have to be at this point. I am still happy with my body overall however. For an old man it ain't bad.... :codger:

they kinda gross me out if they're really defined. i don't prefer them but there's no problem with a guy who works for his ideal body.

Yeah, pretty much agreed. Healthy and moderate is the way to go in most cases, unless you're training for something kind of extreme.

I like a man with a six-pack as long as he's not overtly buff, I can't stand bodybuilders or guys that try to hard to be like them, but if a man has them from hard work because of his job, or if he does have them from working out but doesn't go crazy at the gym, I find that attractive. My sweetie has a nice toned tummy and it makes me go :drool:.

But yeah, I think that ladies like it because it shows a man has discipline and most-likely cares about his health. I also think some women like to date guys who look like that the same reason some men like to date really over-the-top pretty and thin women, it's kind of a trophy look-at-me thing, but that depends on the person.
