The Doctors share the findings of two relationship surveys that may surprise you. A recent study found that women were the happiest in relationships with a man ten or more years younger! The second survey found that more women than you may think are into the "dad bod."
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry explains the study says when females are older, couples are more satisfied and committed. She thinks it could possibly have to do with the younger man being more accepting of an older woman's career and the differences in when men and women have their sexual peaks.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork then talks dad bods! He shares a recent survey of over 3,000 single women. It found that 92% of the women were open to dating single dads, 24% found dad bods attractive, and 83% said they were completely fine with a dad bod. Things are looking up; in 2016, only 83% of single women surveyed said they were likely to date a single father.
"We're not talking about beer bellies. When we say dad bod we're talking about a softer physique, a little rotundity in the belly, not talking about someone super unhealthy," Dr. Travis clarifies.
Dr. Nita notes it's likely a woman would prefer a good, decent, honest man with a dad bod, as opposed to someone with a sick pack who treats her horribly!
Dr. Travis tells Dr. Nita she needs to choose: are you more into the dad bod or the young boy toy? "I want it all!" Dr. Nita jokes.
