Why do girls prefer pretty boys over real men?

For example, most girls in the US have a crush on pretty boy actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Zac Efron, but even as they mature, they are still attracted to pretty boys. Leonardo DiCaprio and Zac Efron won't protect women from muggers or beat the brains out of other guys who are hitting on their women, and I thought women were attracted to men who they thought could protect them.

You don't see too many older women attracted to real, older men like Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood, and Mel Gibson.

From what I have heard, I am handsome, but in a rugged way, and I plan on going to college and becoming an officer in the Marines, so I am hardly one of those pretty boys. I am in no rush to get in a relationship because most high school girls are not yet mature and I want a real woman.

    The military is not going to help you get women. I'll tell you that right now. The marines is going to turn you into a jerk.

    but women like pretty boyz because they pay attention to a womans feelings. the military is going to teach you how to ignore feelings. Women can protect themselves that's what guns are made for.

    Ahahaha! I think Zac efron looks like a wussy girl! I like a built man with masculine features. Why the crap would a woman want to date another "woman"?

    p.s. I don't have a crush on him because he's old, buy Bruce is my fav actor and he's pretty attractive :)

    A mixture of both is nice. I like guys that do work on their physique, and also his tan. I dont want a man that is too muscular, because then it looks like thats all he cares about. But yet, I dont want a boy that cares more about his looks than I do, or takes longer to get ready than I do. So I would say they would have to be equally balanced for me to be head-over-heels.

    I dont really know what the attraction is... but experience tells me that prettyboys take longer to get ready than I do, and thats definately a turnoff.

    I like a guy that will protect me (I guess thats why i've been out with Army guys). Its much nicer to date a manly man than a boy.

    I wholeheartedly agree with you. It is a question that really has no answer other than women are just as shallow as men. You also need to take into account that Ashton Kutcher, noted pretty boy is now married to Demi Moore, hot celebrity milf.

    They think that every pretty boys are strong and hot just to show off. Not every guy is a gentleman. I think a girl should go for a gentleman not a hot man.

    T'is 'coz most girls are bisexual goodman. " Kissed a girl and I liked it.. cherry chapstick" etc. Pretty boys are close to the pretty gals they crave. Ok, I need a threesome now...
