I mean a guy can be fat, ugly, stupid etc etc but he cannot be short, because that is like the next thing as having a third arm or something like that. I know women are going to tell me "yeah but man don't want fat girls" yeah that's true although I beg too differ I have seen many men with chubby women, as well if you had a chance you would trade your fat men for another one that isn't so much fat anymore...
I also heard that its because they want to feel protected...from what? this is not the stone age anymore and plus if you don't want trouble just don't look for it.
Anyhow I mean the guy could be good looking, funny, smart, kind etc etc but if he is not tall or at least average he is not datable at all.
lol I guess I'll answer this seeing as I'm 22 and only 5'5 barefoot (that's not a typo), but yeah it is harder finding girls to date particularly because even the short girls which there are a lot of, still want the tallER guy. Truth be told man you just gotta work with what you got.
I'm short as hell and I gotta live with that, so what do I do? I work out, dress nice (helps a lot), got a job, go to school, anything to tip the balance in my favor. I'm not trying to sound cocky or anything but you wouldn't believe how many times I've heard things like "he looks good but he's too short" or "if only he was taller" it sucks because my height isn't something I can control. However I was patient and it paid off, I've been with my girlfriend now for 4 months not long I know, but she's 5'6 who would've thought lol.
2. no, it isn't the stone age anymore, but evolutionary instinct still exists. for the same reasons, men seek fit women with clear skin and an overall healthy look- women seek men that they instinctively believe will make a good made. height is one of those things. for example, when animals feel endangered or threatened, they bristle, they appear larger than they are to intimidate their predator.
3. being short doesn't make a guy undateable. if he lets his height lower his self-confidence and his ability to interact with women- THAT makes him undateable. it's height. you can't do anything about it except where shoes with slight heels on them. accept it and move on.
4. what is this bullsh*t with trading in fat men for thinner ones? your thinking is so flawed. if I like someone and want to be with him, seeing someone thinner isn't going to change that.
the ideas that you have expressed in this question indicate that being short isn't the issue. YOU are the issue. your thought-process and rational are far from logical.
I agree, really I do. I hate the 'protected' manifesto. Its an excuse that worms its way into lots of areas of lots of girls' lives and I can't understand why. I don't think I'm going to get mugged any time soon, personally, and if I do I'll probably get mugged by a big tall man anyway.
True although we don't need physical height and size to get by anymore we still have that genetic predisposition to choose a certain mate. It's still transitioning more towards social darwinism though instead of the whole physical survival of the fittest.
