I'm seeing a girl at the moment. There's a huge height difference between the two of us: 18 inches (yeah well, she's born in the Philippines and I'm Dutch so go figure).
Anyway, I was trying to look up celebrity height differences for fun so I could tell her about it (typed in "tall men dating short women") and stumbled on a vast number of discussions started by short men and tall women complaining about tall men dating short women.
Seems there is a lot of frustration and entitlement regarding that topic. Both short men and tall women felt like they were robbed of "their" dating pool. In an ironic twist of reasoning they even blamed tall men and short women for being shallow and fixated on height (whilst admitting they wouldn't date outside their own height requirements themselves). And of course the words "self hate" were thrown about.
I was surprised by all of this and wondered what you guys think about all of this?

It's just jealousy run rampant. People don't like to consider they maybe lower on the totem pole of desirability just for something they were born with. It sucks but that's life. We all have things that aren't mainstream whether it be physical or mental but at the end of the day you have to be confident with what you have or else you'll always be miserable.
Height is one of those things I've never had problems with seeing as I'm around 6'5". Do I think that girls have given me attention solely because of my height and how our society translates size into strength? Yes and as such I've used it as an asset but we all have assets that we can use to increase our desirability. There are men who are taller than me, smarter than me, richer than me, better looking than me, etc (I'd like to think maybe not all at the same time.. lol). There will always be someone higher on the totem pole than ourselves. Most of us don't complain and worry about that because that is life. What we must always do is play to our strengths and behave confidently because that goes a LONG way.0
