The Dad-bod is not so bad after all!
Look out, because the “dad-bod” is back! 75% of respondents to a survey said that they preferred the ‘soft and round male’ body type to a more toned one. The Dating.com survey also found that 20% of the 2,000 participants say that body shape does not matter at all when it came to finding a partner. And only 15% like a perfect “Barbie or Ken-like body type”. The term “dad bod” was first popularized in the mid-2010s, when it was used to harshly critique the beach bodies of actors like Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Pratt and the non-traditionally Hollywood physiques of actors such as Jason Segel and Seth Rogan. The results of this new survey could signal a forward step for body diversity.
