After all: most things in your dating life can be worked on and improved upon, but the cold hard truth is that some aspects are set in stone. and there are few other aspects that cause men as much dating agita as being short.If you’re not 6 feet tall or taller, then you may as well just resign yourself to a sexless life of Napoleon jokes.The thing is, as with many other masculine insecurities, this is predominantly in our heads. Worse, I’m the shortest of all my friends who range from 5’1o” on the short side, to 6’7″ on the tall side.But my height has only been as much of a problem as I’d let it be.I can’t say it’s a hardship filtering through them to find the ones worth getting to know.I’m not looking for a “relationship” but “fun” so this works for me. But if a woman is serious about marriage and family, I don’t know if the free sites are conducive for that.Namely, that if you look at a typical 40 year old man’s search preferences, it will generally read 27-35.
However, if I like a man’s picture, I respect the age preference listed in his profile, and if I see my age is outside their target, I move on. To be fair to myself though, no guy has made enough money for me to deem him good looking if my initial thought was that he wasn’t.
Similarly, among 26,434 men ages 30 to 49, 42% wouldn’t even consider a woman if she was older than him.
However, if contacted by an older woman, men wouldn’t necessarily turn her down.
Not sure that sits well with my desire for honesty in a partner if I can’t exhibit it myself. I’ve had a few dates with men stating they’re 5-7 to 6-6. So now I’m not considering guys under 6′, because he’s probably really 5-9, which I do find appealing.
It seems that the under-6-ft guys are definitely adding several inches to their height. 6) So men with average to sub-par looks aren’t listing their income, which could potentially offset their lack of looks or age, are sending me generic cut & paste intro messages, which shows me they really didn’t bother reading my profile. They need to know their league and/or up their online game if they want to play out of their league.
