I think that most people will look at my belly and wonder how anything could get that big. My belly is big, but the rest of my body is normal size. Upon first glance, I don’t have the most attractive physique and I guess people would call me pudgy or chubby. The simple answer of how my belly got so big is that I don’t exercise and I mostly eat whatever I want. I have never been a guy with a deeply set of chiseled six-pack abs, so nobody will ever get a first opinion of me being a universal sign of good physical fitness and health. I am OK with that, as I am not looking for a woman who spends three hours a day working out in a gym and I would much rather date a girl who would share a pizza pie with me, than one I would have to wait 2 hours for her to get ready for a date. I don’t think that many women are attracted to my dad bod and I will turn down that second Krispy Kreme, not because of the size of my belly, but because of my diabetes.
I am sure that my bald head and my grey hair are also one of the first things that people will notice about me and it has been a long time since I got my last haircut, so I probably come off as being a bit scraggly. Researchers say that a man with more belly fat, will have more of the female sex hormone estradiol, which helps to inhibit orgasm and thus allows them to last longer in bed. I read that men with softer bodies make better cuddlers. Most young girls are more interested in a certain body type, but there is no guarantee that it will stay that way as a man gets older. All that a woman should be looking for in a man, is somebody who is considerate, responsive, and responsible and you can’t get that from a first impression.
