Bodybuilding and the Laws of Attraction

You bet your ass all that hard work at the gym pays off, but is that enough to truly be successful with the opposite sex? Let's face it, pretty much every guy and girl is attracted to a smokin' hot body, so most bodybuilders feel that their physique will do all the work for them, and when the opposite sex sees it in all its glory, that's all it will take to reel them in.

This may be true to a degree, but what happens once we get past that initial physical attraction? Our body and looks aren’t going to last forever and someday we’ll age and won’t be quite as ripped and chiseled.

Of course we want a partner who looks good and puts fitness high on their list, but other features have to come forward. Let's compare this to an automobile just for analogy sake. You buy a beautiful car that’s all buffed out, but you continually have engine problems and eventually can’t or just don't want to drive the damn thing. Definitely not what you expected. That beautiful car with all the bells and whistles is starting to become a real pain in the ass. If you've dated several people over the years, you know that this same thing happens in relationships.

Simply put, it’s not always about looks. For all of you women who think that men only want one thing, that’s not always true. Sure we are all animals, and the male species is a hunter who is out to satisfy his needs, but it goes beyond that with maturity.
