    Yes definitely wear dark socks with dark shoes & trousers! Very important! #bigfatlinky

    Now my jaw hit the floor when I started reading this but when I saw the disclaimer at the end normality was restored! Language can be extraordinarily powerful and I don’t think us guys should tolerate being called DILFS any more than a women should tolerate being called a MILF. Kind of suggests you can’t be attractive having had children which is not a good message to send.

    Anyway, you missed one. No point using mouthwash unless you’ve flossed your teeth first! As for Vaseline, it has saved my latest batch of homebrew beer from going horribly wrong. Though I’ll explain how another time! Thanks for hosting #BigFatLinky

    love your disclaimer! My husband actually lost weight after our last baby was born as I had less time to cook or take him breakfast in bed every work morning (yes I actually did that, not because i’m a loving wife but because he’s not a morning person and it keeps his grumpy bum out of the kitchen!) #bigfatlinky

    I must confess I’ve never heard the term DILF before – but notwithstanding that, this is all good advice. Not a huge fan of aftershave though! Thanks for hosting the #bigfatlinky

    You forgot the easiest way to be a DILF – strap a baby to yourself. Instant swoon. My OH has buffed up loads since we met (and had a baby) but he has a pretty manual job. I actually love seeing him in his work clothes – thick black workmens trousers, a black polo shirt and boots. All manly and dirty! Haha. I’ll stop now! #bigfatlinky

    It’s easy to forget those simple things when you’re walking around in a daze. Wouldn’t change a thing about those days but now with children in late teens/early twenties … does it still apply? Oh yes.

    Love the disclaimer!

  7. Mummy Fever

    I’m not ashamed to say I’ve never heard the expression but great post and tips #bigfatlinky

  8. jeremy@thirstydaddy

    I don’t think I’d have a problem with a young lady calling me a DILF, but I’ve got a few years on you. My ego will take all the help it can get

  9. Michelle

    Men in suits are always attractive! Great read! Thanks for sharing! Visiting from #thebigfatlinkyoftheweek

  10. Raising Mighty Girls

    Love numbers 10 and 21! Thanks for hosting.

  11. Mrs Tubbs

    My OH has joined a gym. Looks like there’s something in the air! Thank you for hosting and have a lovely week

  12. theloveofacaptain

    Sounds like you are hinting at a part for Bond? I have to say that a man in a suit definitely works for me. Nice post xx #BigFatLinky

  13. International Elf Service

    This post is a total eye opener to me! I’ve never heard of ‘dilf’ and I didn’t know this list could exist. And women complain that men ‘don’t understand.’ I’ve enjoyed seeing things from the other side!

  14. James Hunt

    No mention of the gym word!!
    Would also have no problem being called a DILF
    Thanks for sharing

  15. Kyles @ Pickles and Pords

    This is a very comprehensive list! I might print it out and leave it subtly about the house to be found. I really like your “Dad is Looking Fine” at the end the best though. My husband looks even better to me post-kids. The sleepy eyes are just a reminder of the wonderful people we brought into the world together. Thanks for hosting #bigfatlinky

  16. Michelle Reeves (The Joy Chaser)

    My husband swears by #1 and I think it’s the best thing a man can do who needs to wear a suit to work. A fitted suit can take lbs off you and will last a lifetime. Also James Bond wears them #nuffsaid Thanks for linking up at #ShareTheJoy :)

  17. Hannah

    You’re right about the grey suit and blue shirt – instant winner :) #bfl

  18. Sarah

    Hahahaha! Love this post! I think I need to send it on to my other half though, just to point him in the right direction #bigfatlinky

  19. ERFmama

    This gave me such a giggle!! :D I’m going to show ERFdad this haha. I think he could do with a couple of them as a brush up. ;)

  20. Choco

    I’m really worried about to fit time in to get to the gym once we have our baby. May be easier to buy a larger suit!
