Many of my friends are musicians whose hands are calloused from playing stringed instruments. My cousin who plays the harp has more callouses on her hands than anyone else I know - including her father who laid brick all his life. Many of my friends are car guys who have oil and dirt so embedded in their hands from years of working under the hood that I don't think it'll ever come off no matter how much they scrub - and trust me they scrub with some pretty harsh stuff and use scrubber brushes to try to clean their hands.

Honestly, whether someone's hands are rough or soft only bothers me if their flesh is splitting open and looks painful due to the roughness, or if they have some kind of really gnarly warts or other skin disorder.

I find myself more likely to be repelled by someone whose hands are constantly moist and sweaty, or someone whose hands are usually cold who feels the need to stick them on me to see me jump.


lol this. ive worked on some pretty nasty engines, and that stuff takes days to week to get off my skin, no matter how hard a scrub. fingernails are a lost cause. they stay black for about a week. i just try to get the worst of it off. i mean, caked on engine grease coupled with harsh solvent tent to dissolved the grease and then it hardens back into the cracked on crap on your hands. and its always fun using too much carb cleaner and then your hands and finger dry out so bad you start to bleed.

Yeah, cleaning up after working on cars or after cleaning cosmoline off something can be a real pain. I think the dirt has become tattooed into some of my friend's hands after so long.

I used to do that to make younger brother when we were kids and I had to wake him up. My hands are always like ice (even when it's 100 degrees out in the summer) so it was always easy. Just touch his neck for a moment and it's like dumping a bucket of cold water on someone or spooking a cat lol.

I like to think that if someones hands are like yours all rough and shit then it shows that you're a hard worker, idk if you are but that's the way I see it. I personally have soft hands but I prefer soft hands as well, don't really mind when someone has rough hands just shows me that they work hard.

What does that mean...

I never notice the feel of someone's hands.

I'm less worried about whether my hands are soft or rough and more worried that my hands are sweaty literally all of the time.

I don't think anyone thinks that is attractive.

I have dry hands, but I wish there was more/better pattern on my hands or else I will allways drop the soap!

My husband is a machinist and his hand have always been rough and calloused, it's never bothered me. I'm more concerned about my own hands being soft than his.

My hands are soft. I put cream on them a lot. I think what's important is that you look after your skin no matter if it's rough or not.

I have soft hands. I used to have callouses but I stopped doing kendo or really doing outdoorsy stuff.

I like soft hands. Honestly, I couldn't care less if the hands were softer than mine, though I do mind the way they look. I like "manly" hands, or the type when I look at them I can think "those hands look strong and manly". If they looked more feminine than mine (example: long, dainty and slender fingers and small palms), I would definitely be conscious about it. But then I also mind dirty, rough, messed up hands. I kind of find it gross for guys to have dirt under their fingernails, or fingernails that are chewed up to the nubs. A couple callouses are ok, but if you clap and dust starts flying off your hands, sorry, but you need to take care of those things.
