Men if you’re 38 you’re probably turning into your Dad

stick_figure_slam_dance_500_wht_5034A survey of 2,000 adults in relationships conducted by a TV channel identified 30 signs of when you start becoming like your Dad – and it seems 38 is the critical age.

Topping the list are:

  1. falling asleep in the front room
  2. having your own chair or special seat where no-one else is allowed to sit
  3. Dad-dancing including the side-to-side shuffle, air guitar, and the Twist
  4. spending time in your “cave” or shed
  5. making bad jokes and laughing at them
  6. nt knowing any top 40 performers
  7. spending longer on the toilet
  8. keeping an eye on the thermostat
  9. getting excited about appliance sales e.g. at B&Q
  10. embarrassing younger members of the family and thinking it’s funny

You might also be reading the Money supplements in newspapers and own a man drawer where you keep old batteries, useless leads and cables, old keys, takeaway menus, even food.

It also seems that 20% of women thought they had married someone like their Dad.

  3. […] And if this research is representative, and from my limited experience with this generation it probably is, then men have only got another eight years before they turn into their dads! […]
