A few years ago (pre-baby), a friend of ours told us about the fun of going to a playground with his daughter and being hit on by other women. Years later, my husband told me about the added attention he gets at the coffee shop, at the grocery store, and just about anywhere he goes with our son.
A few weeks ago, I remember talking about another friend of ours who was left home alone with the baby for a few hours. Never having been out with a baby on his own, noticed the amount of women who smiled or attempted to talk to him.
Today, my husband came home and gave me a great big hug right before he said, “a cougar just came up to me at the park and started a conversation with me after she heard me talking to Oli with my “English accent.”
“I can’t help it, women just want me,” he joked.
I replied and joked back, “did you tell her you’re too old and have no money, because you’ve spent it all on your wife?”
This got me thinking, is it really attractive to see men (dads) with kids?
Why Women Might Think Dads with Kids Are Sexy
So I did a little survey with a few women in my life and asked them what they thought were sexy about men who turn into dads. Check it out:
- They are potentially unavailable
- They have stepped into maturity
- They’ve developed highly protective instincts
- They’ve got a much better understanding of the female body
- They’re providers
Let’s face it, we love men that are hard to get. Most married women may not want to look at a man who’s married, but deep down, it’s kind of sexy to know he’s unavailable.
Many men suddenly look at life differently after they become fathers. It’s not just the fact their lives suddenly change, but it’s also their desire to do the best they can for someone other than themselves.
This turns them into a manly man who can make smart decisions for his family. Very sexy.
Moms aren’t the only ones who develop highly intense instincts to protect their children. Dads form their own bonds with their kids and suddenly become their real life super heroes. Here are a few great examples of how dad saves the day!
Most men who have had the pleasure of witnessing the many delights of their wife or girlfriend’s pregnancy, have surely seen some of the “uglies” that could go on. Stretch marks, flatulents, edema, and perhaps some even more disgusting things that we all know could happen during pregnancy.
He’s seen them all and the more kids he has, the more experienced he is! He’s seen them, which makes him even more sexy, because surely he appreciates every part of that experience, no matter how good or bad it was!
Most dads have the will to be providers for their family. If you find a man in the park with this kids, you know that he’s probably wanting to give his wife a break. It’s also a great way for him to spend quality time with his kids.
Many dads work really hard to give their family the best, most comfortable things in life. If he can’t support them financially, he usually tries to compensate in many other ways.
