But then, the whole “depending on how comfortable you are in your own skin” part mentioned above is undoubtedly questionable in most men, and many, many guys out there would be simply too embarrassed to have a women outlifting them on a regular basis.
Speaking from experience, there are just as many positives and negatives to dating a woman in great shape as there are to dating someone who may be a little less active in the gym, but has other things working in their favour, whether it be physical or emotional.
Of course, not every muscular chick is the same, and I’ll be damned if we don’t all live on in the hope of one day finding that perfect damsel; that girl who can combine heavy lifting with sensitivity, humour, a good appetite and a million other factors—but the search continues.
