NUMBERS DON'T LIE

Results also show 65 percent of people say the dad bod is attractive while 61 percent said men with dad bods are sexy - which is up ten percent in 2018. 


 Nearly four in five among both women and men believe a 'dad bod' is a sign of a man who is confident in his own skin 


23 million men in the United States claimed to have a dad bod - 71 percent of whom believe it is universally accepted. 

THE DAD BOD IS SEXY

Many surveys have found that more than half of women think dad bods are sexy and even prefer the dad bod over muscular men. Wondering why? For starters, the dad bod is associated with attractive personality traits — like a strong sense of humor, a down-to-earth mentality, and a healthy respect for work/life balance. Additionally, the dad bod is refreshingly real; built not solely of muscle, but heart, as well.

Of course, this isn't to say men who enjoy sporting dad bods don't have plenty of muscle to prove their manliness — they just also have the right number of imperfections to prove their authenticity. And both of those things are really sexy. 

IT IS JUST AS CAPABLE

 Having a dad bod does not mean you're unhealthy or weak. It means you're strong and able to meet the challenging (and ever-changing) demands of a father, which include everything from coaching Little League to assembling strollers.

Whereas some athletes might need a whole day to rest and recover after a lengthy exercise routine, dads have the amazing ability to squeeze in a quick workout and then power through an afternoon of fatherly duties. The demands of a modern dad are high — so it makes sense that, with everything you have to balance, you might have an extra few pounds. And that's totally OK! 

THE DAD BOD PUTS FAMILY FIRST

 The sexiest dads are the ones who think of their family before themselves. Before kids entered the picture, spouses may have admired their partners' chiseled muscles and bachelor-style bods — but as soon as children arrived, priorities (and attractions) tend to shift. What makes a mother's heart race? Seeing her husband unload the dishwasher and then drive the kids to soccer practice.

Sure, you might have to sacrifice a gym session to get it all done, but putting your family first means you value building family memories more than building the biggest bicep among your buddies. 

IT IS (MOSTLY) HEALTHY

 If you want to maintain perfect health, it's no secret that foods like French fries, chicken nuggets, and ice cream are best avoided (most of the time). But balancing the schedules of every family member is no small feat. Sometimes fast food is your only option if you want to make it to all of your family's obligations on time. And when your daughter scores her first goal in a soccer match, that calls for a celebratory ice cream.

We love the dad bod because it's not overly strict when it comes to dieting. Although dad bod-ers do watch what they eat, they're certainly not going to complain if the kids decide to order pizza one night.
 

IT IS REALISTIC AND FAMILIAR

 Simply put, people love the dad bod because it's real. A dad bod is not the result of long hours at the gym, a crazy-strict diet, or any performance-enhancing supplements. It's the result of a balanced, healthy lifestyle that includes broccoli and bicep curls but also welcomes burgers and birthday parties. It's all about balance! 

Big & Tall Facts and Statistics

Income

Many scientific studies have found that someone who is 6 feet tall earns, on average, nearly $166,000 more during a 30-year career than someone who is 5 feet 5 inches--even when controlling for gender, age and weight. 

Dating

 According to some very telling statistics, only 14% of men in the US are 6 feet tall or over, which means 86% of US men don't meet most women's ideal. 


Taller men are perceived to be stronger because society conflates height with weight and strength. 

Penis Size

Larger penises give tall men a bigger attractiveness boost than shorter men. Contrary to popular belief and through many scientific studies, penis size is determined by height and many other body proportions other than foot size. 


Bigger penises could explain why human males have relatively big genitals for their body size. 

Marriage

 Tall men were found to marry sooner in life.   Tall men were also more likely to marry women closer to their age, and who were better-educated. 


 From the perspective of relationship exchange models, this indicates that the tallest men exchange their attractive attribute (height) for better-educated spouses, while short men are unable to do so
