Men DO mind celulite as do women. How silly.

Women fret too much about their bodies and men don't fret enough about their bodies. Perhaps, women shouldn't wear such tight-fitting/revealing clothes so that they have some leeway should they gain weight. Also, most men aren't slaves to fashion. Women subject themselves to changes in fashion for which they aren't best suited. It seems to me that women often compete with each other for attention based on looks rather than on smarts or accomplishments. Women AND MEN must do a better job of teaching their sons that surface beauty should not be the only criteria for entering into relationships.

The 'bikini body' issue is very similar to that of the 'fashion model' - there's a disconnect between what makes clothes look good and what makes people look good. High fashion would look best on a hanger, the closest thing to a hanger that walks is the uber-skinny model. Bikinis on specific body types, dependant on the bikini. In many ways a 'bikini body' is actually just a cross between self-confidence and finding the right swimsuit.

I would be much happier if women spent there time trying to get into 'naked body' shape. Granted, this might run parallel to certain aspects of the 'bikini body' but I shudder to think what many high fashion models look like without clothes on.

I have yet to see any woman saying that she knows men are physical creatures, it's in the DNA . You can make all the excuses you want to try to justify being fat and lazy, but it's just not going to fly. You can try try try to make someone who disapproves of your complete disregard of health risks, or just someone that simply wants his wife or girlfriend to look neat and trim to feel guilty or ashamed that he feels that you are the one that has control of your body. Do you really think that a man will not see that you don't give a rats about how you look. If you don't care about yourself don't expect us to either.

Absolutely agree. Fat on either gender is not sexy.

The message of those ads that attack middle-aged women for getting out of shape -- is that men only want to see "cute chicks". They don't want to see images of women that remind them of their mothers. The worst ads are those ones with line drawings of out-of-shape women in barely-sufficient bikinis, and the one with the woman with a cellulite belly hanging out over the unzipped top of her low-rider pants.

But will you see any ads like that showing men with "dewlaps", bellies, or guts? No. You see pictures of body-builders with six-packs.

The question comes down to this: Why are women of a certain age now coming under violent attack by men?

The fact that you just spent an hour on your health is far hotter than the results. Of course, I am sure those results are quite spectacular as well :)

Why is it that when men leave their wifes who coincidentally have cellulite they pick a woman often younger and has no cellulite? I guess that's a coincidence too.
09:18 PM on 06/07/2011
Because those men don't want to maintain a real relationship. It has nothing to do with cellulite and everything to do with psychology.

They usually do that about when they're getting the middle-aged spread themselves.

On the other hand, my mid-30s coworker got divorced a year or so ago, and he's been dieting, lifting weights, and doing cardio, and is looking a good healthy weight and muscular, because he's back in the dating scene.

This may be "too PC," but whatever happened to chemistry? As a guy, I'm way more turned on by a girl with whom I have a solid, se.xy back-and-forth. This comes through body language, conversation, and the way our personalities bounce off one another way more than it comes through an approving or disapproving stare at her legs or a$s.

Too many men are scared of women that don't look/act like children and they mask this fear with cold judgment.

Sure, you might use cellulite to size up a girl whose photos you want on your hard drive or give a second look or dance at a club. And that's totally okay. Eye candy goes both ways. However, I can't see any man in his right mind thinking that judging women based on cellulite will lead to worthwhile, meaningful relationships.

I mean, if your primary goal is to get men to je.rk off to you, then by all means worry about your cellulite. But if you're more interested in making real connections with real men, then ladies, take heed to this article and don't buy the bu.ll.

"Too many men are scared of women that don't look/act like children and they mask this fear with cold judgment."

I think this is the best explanation of this obsessive sort of behavior I have ever heard. Thank you for a very insightful comment.

To all you men, speaking on behalf of all men, telling women on here that we're wrong to not obsess about our cellulite and appearance, I'd like to speak on behalf of all those women and tell you WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR GUYS LIKE YOU, so you don't have to worry.

Stay shallow, we'll be swimming in the deep end or the ocean with men who truly appreciate us for who we actually are.

Hmm... Swimming in the deep end of the ocean ?

Well, you had better date smarter men who possess the sense to NOT swim THERE, wherever that my be.
08:59 PM on 06/08/2011
Yes, I do prefer smart men and I said in the deep end OR the ocean, meaning in the deep end of the pool or in the ocean.

I learned to swim in the ocean. I suppose it depends on where you grew up. But yes, many people swim in the ocean in very deep water regularly, and it's wonderful, especially with an enjoyable man.

“I hear gay men feel the same pressure to look fat free. I don't think gay women do though (or do they?). It could be that men judge biological symbols of health, while women judge biological symbols of security. Or is that an over simplifica­tion?”

Or perhaps that gay men, in general, are just as catty and mean to each other as many women are.

Two out of three US women (or is it more now?) are fat. Get to a healthy weight, THEN worry about cellulite.

Absolutely. It's disgraceful what men have allowed themselves to become. And even worse, they expect women to accept it. Maybe it's more apparent here in the "country", but I am absolutely surrounded by fat men who don't understand why I work on staying in shape. They think it's a waste and almost effeminate. I guess it will give me something to ponder when I stand grave side watching them lowered into the ground.

I would not be so quick to take her nonscientific poll as accurate but there are men who do pay attention to women. I do take one point as being accurate and that is the women's magazines do make other women feel bad about themselves. Now on the other end, what women wear does tend to highlight your cellulite. If you wear an ill fitting dress that shows your cellulite, it's not the men who will comment, it's the women. Men's priorities are different and as much as women want them to be similar to theirs, it's DNA impossible. We process things differently and test after test has shown how the same problem is approached by both sexes in totally different manners. So while this article is about your cellulite, it's about how guys will tell you anything to believe we don't care about cellulite, it's just further down the list. Your guy friends are just sparring your feelings. The unofficial guy code has always been to tell women what they want to hear and the things she find fault with about herself, make them less or not important. Why do we do it? Because we don't care about the Bachelor/Bachelorette, Dancing With The Stars, Jersey Shore, Grey's Anatomy because the testosterone in us is looking for sex and if there's no sex in it, that's why we get dragged to rom-coms starring Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson..

If you please your man the way he wants, I guarantee you he wont leave if you put on a few extra pounds. However, obese is another issue.
