Here is a short riddle that randomly popped into my head. Enjoy! :)

At first you might want to run away from me.

Then, you might confuse me with a female hoofed ruminant.

Only to realize I finish with a plural name for a dude.

Even though I may be all of these things,

I am ultimately something that a lot of people want to work on and something that everybody has.

I think you are:



AB but not sure why EDIT Ab is Latin meaning "Away From", courtesy of @Crozier


A female deer is a Doe, hence DO


Plural for a dude, dude is a man, so plural is MEN


Lots of people work out their abdomens to get rock hard abs, and everyone has them.

    $\begingroup$ Wow, that was fast! You are correct! The prefix ab- means "away from" in Latin. Also, welcome to Puzzling Stack Exchange! :) @AHKieran $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Yay and thank you! I hardly know any latin so thanks for that :) And I'm having a lovely time here, started a new job recently and it helps me pass the time whilst tests are running whilst still keeping my brain active :D @Crozier $\endgroup$
