Dad bods aren’t just “in”, they’re dead sexy!

If you look “Dad Bod” up on Wikipedia, it describes the phrase as “slang term in popular culture referring to a body shape particular to middle-aged men….This masculine body type is a cross between somewhat muscular and overweight physiques.”

Sounds sorta like me. I’m more overweight than muscular.

Plus, I’m not a dad…so can I even have a “dad bod”?

Would I like to be in better shape?

Of course.

But I eat too much food & drink too much beer.

I’d have to work out constantly to have a decent body or I’d have to stop enjoying food & beer, and that’s just not happening.

We’ve heard for years now that “dad bods” are in…and thanks to a new poll at, three outta four people say they’re a fan of the look!

So, don’t fret too much if you’re dragging a bit of extra luggage around with you. It’s dead sexy!

Some other takeaways from this survey:

  • More than 20% of those surveyed said that body type doesn’t matter when it comes to finding a partner. They prefer to focus on personality over looks.
  • Only 15% of members shared that they prefer a Barbie or Ken-like body type when it comes to a partner
  • More than 70% of singles reported that they have started working out and/or are going to the gym more in the last couple of months to get in shape before Summer.
