But in reality, what we really find attractive is this:
Behold the Dad Bod. An average male body, not ripped, love handles, beer belly, strong and comfortable. So why are women drawn to the DadBod? A couple of good reasons:
- We just don't want to work that hard. I mean, seriously, if our men are spending so much time working out, measuring and weighing food, and posing, we feel compelled to participate. Great looking bodies take a lot of maintenance and upkeep, and frankly we're exhausted. Family, home, work, and then hours of working out? Unless you're a movie (porn) star, ain't nobody really got time for that.
- We don't want a man who is higher maintenance than we are. It's fucking intimidating; and while there are some very self-confident, self-actualized women out there, most of us have major body image issues. We're attracted to men who we won't have to worry about leaving us when childbirth rearranges our figures.
- We all want a fucking bacon cheeseburger and beer every now and then. Guilt free. And donuts.
And just in case you were wondering how to get your own lust worthy DadBod, I'm giving you a sample meal plan for your DadBod Diet.
