While I think that no matter what your body type, there is someone out there who will find you attractive. All the chatter on the web and personal blogs got me to thinking about the reality that I now have a Dad Bod too. And while there may be many women (and men) who are attracted to guys who are starting to get soft in the mid-section, I still aspire to a more youthful and fit image of myself; chalk it up to vanity, personal insecurities – whatever.
I have to say that I think this whole Dad Bod thing is very Freudian and probably something more often embraced by heterosexual women. I think gay men are more likely to have different expectations. How else can you explain the gay communities obsession with iconic “Daddies” like Tom Ford, Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, etc… and the inevitable “Daddy” dating sites like Daddyhunt.
Regardless, if you too are intrigued by the whole Dad Bod thing you can check out an article on Vox from last week called Dad Bod: What is it and why is everyone suddenly talking about it. You can also see if you have a Dad Bod I suppose by checking out this official Dad Bod chart.
