The dad bod is here to stay if women have anything to say about it.
Daily Mail asked "dating expert" Hayley Quinn to step out onto the London streets with three men and poll women on which man was most the physically attractive.
The candidates consisted of a tall, thin man, a slightly pudgier counterpart and a muscled physical trainer.
Although it might seem as if most women would jump for the trainer, that wasn't the case. For some, his muscles were more of a turn off than an attractive quality.
While objectification should never be the aim of surveys like this one, the video shows the dad bod reflects a real trend of body acceptance in our culture.
Men, like their female counterparts, deserve to be loved at any size.
