Do girls appreciate more muscular guys today? My youth was at a time where it made a difference. Tipping point was football player looking guys trying to hit on my girlfriend all the time and I was always a thin guy. That was motivating but I really enjoyed working out anyway. Didn't achieve or want Schwarzenneger look but definitely got and kept bodybuilder look. Made an obvious difference. Hair wasn't the issue then however. But still, why not eliminate one characteristic that makes one feel inferior.
