Dating a short man
"It’s mind-boggling," says Gerard, 31, who is 5'10".
"You see these women who are overweight and unattractive clamoring for a tall man on their profiles, but I can’t ask that the girl be attractive or under a certain weight.” Now, the above quote crystallizes an important point.
That’s why queer men have a higher rates of anorexia, body dysmorphia, and steroid use than their straight counterparts.
And yet, isn't this brazen height-ism just another variation on the kind of "no fat chicks" misogyny that would seem both offensive and outdated if a guy were to just casually drop it into a Tinder profile?
Studies have repeatedly found that women prefer men who are way taller than them as tall men are perceived to be better leaders.
Many of my friends have said that they wouldn’t consider dating a guy shorter than 5’8 though they themselves are somewhere between 5’2-5’4.
So i'm about 5'5" and find it quite hard to find any girls that are in to me.
My friends say its because I don't put the effort in etc..
