    In the public eye


    Just wondering how you guys get treated when you say go to do the shopping or are just hanging out in public?

    compared to before you started weightlifting

    I remember the first time, I was walking down this mall, and I just felt like eyes on me and I heard a "mmmmmmmmm"
    I use to think I was paranoid n **** but when people ****in honk outside your house or when your walking somewhere its just like errrrrrrr

    its not all good because people are critical as ****
    but its not bad because its a good thing.

    what do you guys get and how do you handle it?

    thanks in advance.

    Im big enough for people to notice but not big enough to intimidate so if I go to a bar all the idiots with beer muscles want to pick a fight with me. I also live in Denver, where gays are widely accepted, so if I go to a coffee shop Im almost always get hit on by a gay guy even when my wife is standing right by me. That could just be the shaved head look though too.

    Adults typically move away from me rather rapidly. Children like to run and hang off my body parts and I just drag them around. Sometimes when I am at the beach, women like me to stand by them so they can look at my body and I create a large area of shade for them.

    at my biggest 270ish I seemed to intimidate a lot of people. No one would stand close to me in crowded places. i also got sized up a lot. I found a lot of guys wanted to talk to me and 98% of all women were scared of me . I think this year i will try to stay a little smaller i might even try to get my abs to where i can see them well.

    Now this has to be the most annoying thing about my gaining muscle mass...lol.

    Everytime I see my younger cousins, etc, they want to hang on me and them tell me to throw them as I high as I can and stuff. Then they hang on to my legs and make me drag them all over the house. They dont' let go!!!

    I hear girls are 'scared' too. It's not that they are actually 'scared' its that they are insecure with themselves. Just being nice you can usually get by that.

    Guys, however, might actually be scared (and insecure).

    Yeah, I've heard that women are intimidated by big guys before. Funny how they never seem to bitch about it when some creepy dude is around tho. I think alot of women like to know that theres a big fricking gorilla who is willing to beat the **** out of any creepy dude that ****s with them.

    I don't have this problem...I'm 5'11 220lbs (15% BF ), so I'm not a small guy.

    I just don't walk around acting like a hardass and I give warm greetings and am always polite. People are don't act like I'm a freak...lol. I'm sorry, Jinkillkill, but I've seen your avatar; you're not ronnie coleman and I see no reason why people should move to the other side of the street and such if they do not for me No flame intended.

    Hello, excuse me, how ya doin', etc, etc, etc...people see that **** and respond. It's not that hard.

    EDIT: I just noticed he was banned...I've seen some stupid posts, but I wonder what he did??? I didn't see anything ban worthy--except for maybe the gay escort thread....WTF??

    Michael Savage explains it somewhat in his book, and he gets it right. Women (these days) are scared of masculinity, I think that can be applied to most people in general. But don't get me wrong, they want a man (who is a man) - not a girlie man in a flowered pink shirt with 9 inch arms (you know, the heroin fashion model type look).

    among guys though, its straight jealousy.

    haha gay escort thread. yuck.

    Back at bb.com, there was an article posted about how girls think that the "bodybuilder" types are really attractive but only for one night stands and short term relationships. The reason? It had little to do with how they felt about muscles but how much control they can exert over their men. Most females didn't want to pursue a long term relationship or marriage because they were worried that they can run off with someone else. The only females that wanted long terms or marriages were the really attractive women. This was done by survey.

    Interesting, i believe it's generally true. Think of the reverse - girls with the perfect body. Guys, usually, don't try to persue a long term deal with them - simply a one-night stand.

    LOL

    I hear ya I am 6' and even when I weighed 250 and never over 15% BF, I didn't get a second look. Where are these other guys from the land of the little people. I am around some good ole farmer boys who come out of the womb weighing 200lbs and carrying a cow under each arm.

    I mean yea ok 20 years ago when the US population was smaller a 6'2" 250lb guy was a BIG BIG man but now a days come on. Maybe in a college bar where the average guy weighs 180lbs but NOT in the real world.

    Hell they even have triathlons for guys 225lbs and over and let me tell ya they aint fat.

    Also why are people immediately look at some of these guys above and hate em and their the enemy. Is this drama night on the anabolic board lol JUST kidding Don't get your 'huge' bodies all upset

    That is why you always go out with your friend that is a greasy looking pencil neck. He creeps em out then you come in for the rescue.

    its cool


    well im banned, but I have this name- Though I plan to only read or possibly ask a question from now on- I didnt even like what I was writing or becoming either.

    Back to the point:I wanted to see peoples experiences with how Soceity treats them
    i.e Famous people get free ****- privaleges
    rich people get respect
    but theres something wrong with having that I'll do what you wont attitude/confidence in who you are that makes people act negatively.

    Such as when I was "normal" or younger if I dressed nice etc that was cool- but nothing intimidating
    now If im dressed up- its like I feel people giving me attention or looking at me- like im standing out and this can be good or bad- depending on whose looking.

    Also does anyone else get that alot? it makes me want to crack up and laugh sometimes- you know.


    in closing: wish me luck it was my 3rd attempt at being a p.t- and Ive finally been short listed and invited to a specail screening as an apprentice p.t!
    long term plan- secondary school (high school) physical education teacher- cause I want to teach kids- Ive had some experince teaching but as you guys can tell theres a long road ahead.

    But besides my one thread in the nutrition/diet section I just wanted to say thank you everyone for all your help- to my surprise I missed a few people-like seeing their posts made me proud, but anyway.

    see ya'

    what is considered an average size for the "average joe?" It is obvious that people in the general population are getting bigger, but I'm curious to what is considered a normal sized male?

    It's true, when I was 230ish I'd get aproached by women all the time. Now i'm around 265-270 and I just get looks from them. Seems like their just intimidated. I definetly love being bigger though, my friend is 6'1" like 205 or so and it's just like was said earlyier, whenever he goes out somebody pics a fight with him. He's got a pretty good build but he's not intimadating so the beer muscle jerks get jelous and **** with him. Being "bigger" a great thing when your on a construction site. Everybody's just alot nicer to ya.

    I've been 6'4" since 8th grade, so I usually get stares. Back when I was a ****load fatter they weren't the good kind. Now they're reasonable. I only realize how I make other people feel when I'm around freakishly big people. Once saw a guy who was about 7 foot or so and he looked like a mean mother****er. Made me a bit nervous to say the least, but helped me understand being so much bigger than most people does have an effect on them, especially women.

    Odd though, 'cause most of the women I've dated have been shorter than average. My last girlfriend was tall, but the one before that was around 5'2". Odd match, but she was racked like a heretic and had a great ass. Loved racquetball too, which was a plus. I was in great shape when we were dating.

    Well I am 6' 235 and in my mind anyone the same size or smaller/shorter than me is small lol

    But part seriously part of the year I live out in farm country and if you weigh LESS than 250 you ARE small, and that goes for the woman too.

    Then again now I hang out with alot of Spanish people and I am tall/BIG to them. I kinda like it

    To answer the question, I haven't gained too much muscle (cutting) but I went from 275 to now I'm at 193. Its a world of change for me, both good and bad. Good is that I'm getting a lot more attention from females. They just don't talk to me anymore because I'm a friend of their boyfriend's or because they want something from me. Bad is that I lost a lot of friends. In High School, I was in football as a lineman and thats who most of my friends are. So I fit in nicely. After High School, a lot of us no longer could maintain our weight (mine was at 220-240) and gained weight, myself included. I decided "no more" and cut. I was accused of taking steroids (they don't know **** about supplements so I doubt they knew about steroids that have leaning properties) and most of them claimed that I'd stop losing weight by the end of the summer. Well, I've lost about 35 lbs since that moment. It sucks but to make a bad thing good, I made a lot more friends that don't seem so insecure and aren't fat. I still talk to a couple of my old friends, people who were actually happy and gave me props on my transformation. Thats still about two or three out of 25 or more. Not good.

    So there you have it.

    yep, live and learn. Jealously rules peoples lives. I get the steroids thing a lot - mainly to diminish my accomplishments - you know how that goes.
