Do you think the majority of women prefer the stocky beefcake build on a man or the lean/normal everyday guy look?

I am 5ft7-5ft8 and weigh 161 pounds so I am more like the normal everyday physique.

The cheerful, confident look of a man who does not worry too much about his looks.

I like an athletic, sculpted build like Michaelangelos' David, unshaven. Someone who smiles easily and is comfortable with who he is.

I'm sorry. I didn't know the term beefcake. Muscle is good either way, but lean's not my cup of tea.

I am around 5ft8 and workout a lot but I only weigh though 155-160 lbs. is that weight range to small do you think for a man of my height who works out regurley?

One thing I've noticed on WP is that I don't think like "most people". I'm sure your physique is attractive for your height.
It seems lots of women / men do like guys with a trim build and yours sounds like a good BMI.

I like bellies but that doesn't mean you're too slim, and it doesn't mean you should feel insecure.

Do you workout yourself? I find weightlifting a great stress reliever.

Not in the traditional sense. I swim, walk my dog, and do yoga.

I used to do a lot of mountain biking, but I gave it up after my stroke because of vertigo.

I live in a big city and often see a couple and wonder "How in the hell did that happen?" My girlfriend always said there's always a girl who's into what you are. Fitness is good to keep your body healthy but don't do it for the ladies. Do it for yourself. You could be a 600lb, hairy, balding dwarf and there's a hot woman out there somewhere who is totally into it.

Well speaking for myself I always attracted more female attention when I was young/fit/well dressed/well groomed

You don't need money to keep fit and eat well. Just self-discipline that's all.
