This whole dad thing has been quite the adventure. Everything from being responsible for another human being to learning how to work a baby bjourn has been a new and exciting experience. I love being a dad… But this whole internet trending of the so called “DadBod” is getting rediculous.
The DadBod… The Dad Bod…. The Dad… Bod. Really? Seriously? This is a thing now? I’ve been working out for years, played college sports and now the “in thing” is eating pizza and skipping the gym for happy hour? I call BS!
I just don’t get it. I don’t think (the dad bod) is something women think is good looking. I don’t think it’s something guys think is good looking. I think it’s something that a bunch of lonely dudes who eat pizza and haven’t seen the inside of a gym since they they watched Rocky V (which by the way was a terrible freaking movie, almost a franchise ruiner).
Incase you didn’t know- I’m a dad. I don’t have time for the gym… I barely have time to brush my damn teeth or go to the bathroom, most days, I usually only have time to pick one of those two! But I make time for the gym a few days a week. I mean I’m no longer an Olympic hurdler… I no longer eat grilled chicken and steamed vegetables for every meal. But I’m not a “DadBod” kinda guy.
The DadBod is so much more than a stomach. Girls say they want a guy who can have some fun and doesn’t need to live in the gym right? But are they ready for what comes with the DadBod… The DadBod is not just a lifestyle it’s a state of mind a religion if you don’t mind me saying. You know… Just a guy laying around on the couch all weekend eating chips and picking lint out of their belly button… Watching Netflix in his boxers and an old Nirvana t-shirt… That’s the DadBod.
You’re telling me that’s what women want? Get outta here. I’m happy somewhere in the middle of the DadBod and the Calvin Klein model in tighty-whities who stares and judges me from the side of a bus ad.
