Why do girls like guys that look like girls?

Seriously, why do fangirls fall for feminine-looking men?


It's psychological. Effeminate males are "Non-Threatening."

Macho men with scruffy beards and big muscles make younger women uncomfortable as a rule, because females can't help thinking about being dominated by them. It's only natural. The exact same thing happens on the other side of the coin. Voluptuous women make men think about sex much more intensely than less curvaceous females, but more than that: they intimidate weak and insecure men.

So, to answer your question, it is a case of insecurity. Not preference. All humans go through stages, though many people never grow out of their nervous and insecure stage, most do. Females go through rather extreme stages compared to males, which is why by the time they're in their late 30s and early 40s they're happily hooking up with whiskey drinking men and start thinking that a giant ugly scar from a knife-fight somehow makes a man look unbelievably attractive. Yet that same woman twenty years earlier would have gone: EWWW!!! OMG GROSS!!! GET AWAY FROM ME!!!

It's not preference. It's a combination of psychological development and hormone levels. People like to pretend we have choices, but we don't. People also like to pretend they aren't part of the animal kingdom, but they are. People like to pretend a lot of things, but that's because people would rather rationalize things, than accept reality, even when it is explained to them in depth.

O rly? I think its bad. If the guy looks rly like a girl I mean having a cute faces eeek! I hate that. more to be a sissy. If it was anime guy maybe It's sorta cool. I just like long-haired guy 8DD

hummmm ........ i think it's just becuz girls simply admire beauty . if i see beauty i admire . i mean that's not only for guys . even if i see a beautiful woman i still admire her beauty . but it's just admiration not attraction . attraction goes for guys who look manly ( not too much of course , manly in a cute way not in a way lol )
u see what i'm saying ?

In anime guys look so girly because that;s what viewers respond to. Trust me, research and polls go into it, be it manga, sitcoms, anime. everything gets broken into components, and whatever works is put into it... and lots of it! Why do you think that all the doctor's in Greys Anatomy are so good looking? Exacly.
So, unfortunately for those of you who like the manly type in anime, you are outnumbered by the bishies loving type.
I myself LUV bishies, but I also like the manly type, as long as it is not over exagerated.

now that's an interesting question, i never thought about that..

well, it may not only be because of the 'feminine look' that the anime guy has that many girls adore him, it usually is because the 'good looks' are accompanied with a cool personality or an attractive character.

I don't usually like the bishies either but I can't help it if the character is delightfully evil and has a mastermind and happens to be a bishie.
I go for the awesome characters, not the handsome ones or the ones generally considered to be handsome.

Its not like I would choose a metrosexual man over a manly man in real life..

But anime characters aren't real. So why not just dream in a fantasy world for a little bit about pretty guys?

I love feminine guys like crazy. I think they are cute, and can be emotionally supportive. [ considerate]

I'm a girl and I HATE them.....>_> but I DON'T like really buff men either....a happy medium is good.

There's a difference between bishounen and girly men I think. I like bishounen.

So....if this makes sense, I like my boys pretty but not to the point where you can't tell they are boys.

Traps for the lose. >_>

personally i like them. ... even in real life (youcanshootmenowlolololol). i don't really know why. i suppose it just appeals to me more for whatever reason? they seem more attractive to me, perhaps because i just think the jock-male-muscle-type-guy is just... i don't know, just not very attractive.

i know i'm not making sense, but yeah. i guess it just depends on your tastes. i think men with girly eyes are pretty. /shot owo

Simple: we all have different preferences.

I myself am not attracted to masculine looking men. I like men who have a feminine touch. I don't like the scruffy "i'm a big man" look. It just doesn't strike me as an attractive person. I'm attracted to guys with... more feminine features. Guys who can easily be dressed up to look almost like a girl. Perhaps its from my past experiences with scruffier guys that... led me to take up such tastes. And I find feminine men to be more stylish (not saying that masculine men don't have style... its hard to say what i mean). My style tend to have guys look more girly... I just don't like guys who puts on a huge t-shirt and pants hanging down their ass.

haha~ i'm confusing myself. In the end... I'm just attracted to feminine men. =) simple as that.

The part i cant understand is how sensitive these men are. I have been in the Marines for 2 1/2 years and the men in anime's always come of as highly feminine. it pisses me off that the hero of the story cant Man-the-Fu#k -up and do whats needed or say whats needed. Does a sensitive guy appeal to women or not?

Again, this should be a happy medium. He needs to show emotions to be human (I dislike robots) but he shouldn't be crying every 10 minutes either....

Ok. I can understand that. I guess that means Im more of a "robot". What about the guys who wait until the girl is almost in tears to proclaim their love, or the fighter who waits until the last moment to defeat the enemy. Those guys drive me crazy, but also probably make the story interesting. I was trained to use everything you can all the time and end the fight quickly so you can start another fight when necessary. Do you find them interesting or do they drive you insane?
