For quite a while now, there has been a narrative that girls do not know what they want. Now, while this narrative might have some truth to it (I’m pretty sure that you would agree with me on this), one thing that every girl knows how to do perfectly is list specifications or features that they would love in a guy.

And one feature that most girls would definitely have in theirs is a lean, fit and muscular man. Even among men, most would agree with you, speaking objectively, that the leaner and more muscular you get, the more women would flock around you. Matter of fact, this is one of the motivations that drive men to obtain gym memberships and begin the journey to fitness and of course, being the hottest dude on the block.

There Are Statistics to Back it Up!

So, a menshealth article from 2007 mentioned research that was carried out by UCLA and it conclusively confirmed that women are indeed attracted to muscular guys

The research also shows that muscular guys are like a magnet for women looking to have some fun and they typically have twice the number of partners that the average guy would. 

According to one of the participants, Karen, 22, “I think we are attracted to big muscles the same way men are attracted to big boobs.” “While they certainly look quite nice, they don’t sit at the top of the list of important characteristics for your long-term partner to have. When women are looking for something short-term, they aren’t necessarily looking for someone to have compelling conversations with — they want someone hot!”

So, it’s mainly about the physical first impression. Muscular guys no doubt turn heads and even other guys would agree that rippling muscles are just something that you can’t overlook

Here’s Some More To It 

Now, like it or not, we are animals and we have primal or animalistic instincts. We are automatically attracted to the beautiful, sexy, gorgeous. Basically, exceptional. This is why men cannot help but notice big boobs, nice hips, and a great shape generally. In the same vein, a muscular body on a man is a dream come true for most women.     

Why Muscles Can Help You Get Girls 

1. Muscles Are Sexy!

This is something that you would definitely agree with. Your favorite celebrities are lean and muscular and you definitely like them for reasons beyond what they do. While I might not have statistics, I could go out on a limb to say that muscular celebrities have a bigger fan base than their chubbier counterparts. 

Most women base their selection of short-term sexual partners on mainly physical features. While muscular guys get a straight pass, it would be a lot more difficult for others to impress. Typically, they would have to have something that makes them stand out of the bunch. But for muscular guys, the requirements are a whole lot less. 

Also, women like to be with men that they can flaunt. So, having a muscular man is a big plus, the drooling when you’re out together makes most women feel like they’ve got the prize and it subsequently makes them feel better about themselves. 

2. Muscles Are Indicators of Strength 

Women like to be with men that they would feel safe around. They like to know that their man can protect them at any given time.  And evidence of physical strength, of course, is muscles. So, we can safely conclude that the more muscular a man is, the more attractive to women he would be working based on the strength factor and eliminating extremes such as incredible bodybuilding

In addition, other men are intimidated by muscular men and this is one of the reasons that men engage in bodybuilding. So, take for instance that a particular lanky gentleman has been harassing your lady for a while, a show of strength is all that is needed to take care of that. Women love hard bodies too, muscular

men would attest to the fact that their women never get tired of tracing the outlines of their muscles, pecs, abs, and the likes. 

How to Become Muscular

So, I’m just going to be super direct here. You wanna get muscles, you’re going to have to work them! And truth be told, the process of getting ripped is certainly not an easy one. But if you put in the work, the results are definitely going to be worth every bit of sweat and pain that went into it. Beyond looking attractive to women, it gives you a measure of self-confidence and a commanding presence when you walk into a room.

And of course, you would be getting all of ‘em hot chicks too. Now to build muscles, you can either decide to hit a gym or you could invest your time doing some effective home workouts. A combination of both would definitely be the bomb. Your diet is very important too and you would see yourself taking lots of food and supplements that are intended to build your body. Getting a professional personal trainer to help you achieve your fitness goals is a pretty great idea as well. 


So, believe it or not, there are women who do not go crazy at the sight of well-shaped muscles. Studies show that if a woman is looking for a long-term relationship, she would typically look beyond muscles to more concrete factors especially those linked to your personality. 

Now, this is no reason to slack off or think less about building your body. Because here’s a thought, any woman likes a guy who’s consistent, dedicated, and faithful. If your workouts are going to yield results, you would have to be these things. In other words, as you build your body, you’re developing your character as well. 

Finally, there is adequately muscled, and there is too muscled. Learn where to draw the line because too much can become too intimidating and backfire, defeating the entire purpose for which you started to workout in the first place. place

Hi, I'm Marc Summers

marc summers of major league dating

I used to suck big time with women, dating, and relationships even though I was nicer than other guys, tried my hardest, and followed all of the dating advice. The women I landed, unsurprisingly, weren’t very picky or hard to get and I regularly got cheated on and dumped. Despite being the nice, generous, thoughtful, and loving guy I thought women wanted, once they got to know me, the attraction disappeared.

The day my girlfriend left me for her ex 30 minutes after hearing he got out jail was the day I decided to get serious, figure out EXACTLY what I was doing wrong, and make some changes.

The next 5 years of my life were spent focusing only on studying psychology, human behavior, effective communication, and leadership, and meeting and dating one woman after another to test out and fine tune what I was learning.

You know what became obvious very quickly?

Your dating and relationship problems have nothing to do with the women and have everything to do with your mindset, behavior, habits, and decisions.

Once you figure out what’s wrong and fix the problems in each one of these areas, your dating life will become easier, less stressful, and more rewarding. 

To share the powerful information I learned and make you better with women, dating, and relationships, I’ve written multiple best-selling books and have helped over 1-million men get better results. No matter how screwed up and hopeless your situation seems right now, I can help you improve it.

You have been quite possibly my favorite teacher in my life. I wish there was a way to repay you. Thank you very much for following your purposes.


Great book! Short, sweet and to the point. I almost felt like a buddy of mine was reading and telling me these things. Emotions run high in break ups but playing your hand right can be the difference between getting her back & not. Now wish me luck as I am determined to use these 72 rules!


This book is awesome. It really helped me being out and capitalize on the “Bad Boy” Traits I already had. I highly recommend this book.


Perfect and concise. This book is what every nice guy has dreamed of. It gives the formula and reasoning behind why they generally don't have success with women... even though they have adapted to the things the women have claimed they wanted.


Thanks for the tips…really helpful..been a regular reader since I subscribed..looking forward to reading more.


Best money I’ve ever spent. I have a hard time learning from books and listening to audiobooks. But talking to you one on one has made it so much easier to understand and learn because I don’t get stuck wondering what something means. After 7 calls, I feel like a different man and my thinking is on another level. Don’t know where I’d be if I hadn’t met you.


Out of all the dating coaches and PUA guys I follow, your insight and way of teaching resonates with me the most. I have a lot of “wow that makes sense” moments and I feel myself developing this unbeatable mindset and confidence with women. You’re helping connect the dots and on behalf of all the men, thank you for all you’ve done Marc. You’re an inspiration brotha, keep it up!


Dude, you rock. I appreciate your perspective, the information, tips, the advice... It's all been a helpful tool for me.


Required reading for all 18-year-olds and those that need a refresher course on relationships.


You are full of good information. Coming from a nice guy, you have helped me clarify the differences and mistakes I have been making but wasn’t fully aware of. This information is applicable to life, personal, business, friendships, relationships, etc. Take out of it what works for you.


Marc, thank you for being kind enough to release this dating BIBLE to the public. After 1 week of reading your book, I have found my inner game bro. I am realizing the power from being good at talking to women and I am ADDICTED. Because of you, I have unlocked my inner confidence, power, realization of self, and have figured out the fun of simply talking to the hottest girls without even knowing what fear is at the moment.


I read your books everyday Marc and it really helps me out a whole lot with women. Your books taught me 2 have patience and self-control with women and taught me that women don’t respond to logical things that men do to get women to like them. You really write great excellent books Marc. Thank you.


I’ve read a lot of pickup stuff online and you’re one of the only coaches who gives real applicable advice. Thanks for the help


Awesome book Im glad I came across this. This will help me to overcome this nasty habit. I’m on my way to a great lifestyle thanks to this book thank you.


Exactly a year ago, I read your book and it completely turned me around on my perspective of women and dating. I’m still amazed at the changes. Thank You.


Hey Marc, thanks for the eBook. It is amazing. You say it as it is.


I used to have trouble striking up conversations with women and often put my foot in my mouth when things started well. Thanks to MLD, I've realized little things I was slipping up on and now my dialogue, posture, and mindset feel almost instinctual. Needless to say, it has helped my social and love life tremendously.


Marc, you need to be charging 5 times as much because what you teach is pure gold. I got so much more than I expected to and I will definitely be a customer for a very long time. You explain things so simple and the things I’ve been trying to understand for the last 10 years suddenly made perfect sense. I have studied ALL the dating experts and followed them over the last 10 years and you are by far the best I’ve come across. I also love that you don’t teach this BS pickup artist stuff that doesn’t work. All the BS goes out the window and you are straight to the point.


Finished it in one session. This book is mandatory read for us men to live up to our greatest potential.


Hey Marc. Your book is the only one I’ve ever found that specifically talks about the whole Real Man/Bad Boy phenomenon in detail (Actually being it as opposed to knowing how to “Perform” it). There is so much crap online about what it is to be a man and what not that finding your book was really refreshing. You’ve done a great job with it. Thanks for writing this book, I couldn’t put it down! I’ll keep an eye out for any more of your works.
