Have you heard of it yet?
The whole Dad Bod thing?
I admit it.
Sometimes I’m a little slow on the uptake.
Although this rave has existed for quite some time?
I’m only now catching wind of it.
Apparently a lot of you girls have decided you’re really into a guy who isn’t a total Adonis. Instead you like a guy who is actually human and packing a few pounds on him.
A bod that says, “I go to the gym occasionally.”
“I also drink beer and like pizza.”
This is the guy who doesn’t have “washboard abs.”
But he’s not really overweight either.
So what has caused this recent craze and what is driving so many of you girls to embrace it? Sad to say it is not because you have finally come to your senses.
It’s not because you’ve realized Nice Guys are worthwhile.
The real source of this is your insecurities.
It’s not about loving him for who HE is.
It’s about not looking BAD beside him.
“Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit.” “We are insecure enough as it is. We don’t need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.”
“We like being the center of attention.”
“We want to look skinny.”
“The bigger the guy the smaller we feel.”
“The better we look next to you in a picture.”
Of course there are also some perks to be had since not being a rock makes him nicer to “cuddle.” You don’t have to feel bad if you want a “cheat meal” either, since he’ll be “totally down” and will eat “just about anything.”
None of this surprises me at all.
Long ago I told you all about female attraction.
It’s not about a guy’s looks.
It’s all about his confidence.
His willingness to lead you.
Unfortunately for you girls though the traits you DO desire are usually associated with that Addonis. Guys who slack off on being physically fit tend also not to be so alpha.
So the Dad Bod thing?
Sorry to say but it leaves you in a bit of a conundrum.
Your insecurities are giving you mixed signals here.
You’re pulled toward the Dad Bod AND the alpha.
My advice is be smarter than your DNA.
Just learn to love guys as people.
When you do?
You’ll find the rest of things work out nicely.
What do you think? Is the Dad Bod thing really relevant at all or is it just as irrelevant as whether or not your guy is alpha?
