Why does society make me feel bad for having dating preferences?

  • Nobody cares about random dating preferences, unless they have a friend who moans about being single but is weirdly picky.

    When people are frustrated by preferences, its not because -you- have a preference, it's because enough people share your preference that it starts creating social discord. And then people naturally want to push back against that bias, because either they or some people they know are being hurt by the societal bias, or because they simply recognize that if most people want partners, people need to pair up not sit around all waiting for the same group of people.

  • Society is still highly critical and controlling of woman. Our bodies, faces, sexual activities, partner preferences. It's gotten to a point where even woman will judge other woman. However, never let other people decide shit for you. You know what you want so go for it. People will find any reason to judge because they're bored so just tell them to fuck off ;) you do you, girl

  • Because society has spent a ton of time telling people that everyone is okay and fine the way they are. It's tough to tell someone that they are perfect the way they are, and then say that they aren't your type. Kind of a conflicting message.

  • I think this is where being overly militant about inclusion is a detriment to society. You shouldn't feel bad for liking what you like when it is a personal relationship. There is a difference between physical preferences when dating than when hiring someone.

  • "Society" does not exist-- society is nothing but a conglomeration of millions of individuals. So if "society" is making you feel a certain way about a certain thing, it's because individual people are saying those things. Just food for thought.

    Anyway, mostly because they're insecure themselves. I have been called names for having preferences too of attraction and dating. People are idiots, apparently. That's the only real answer to your question.

  • It's a bit overdone but screw what others think. As long as you get what you want from it and that makes you happy then I see no issue in having preferences. I'm from a country with a multicultural background but from a young age I realised I was only into Chinese girls. I know it sound like I'm ab asshole but most my uncles are in interracial marraiges. Not sure if I'm just racist or what but in your case as long as your happy then keep your preferences

  • Every person is part of society. Since there is wide array of personality's. It's rather unlikely the consensus is perfectly in line with anyone individual. Rather it's more good enough for most people

  • Well, I can almost guarantee that it's the women that are doing this, because the only men that would care about your dating preferences are the ones you wouldn't date and why would you care about the opinions of those men anyway.

  • i get called shallow all the time just because i have preferences or certain things i find attractive all the time. but i dont think it really matters because i have high expectation for all aspects of the person i date for their appearance, personality, moral character, work ethic... I dont think it really matter what society thinks.

  • It probably depends on what your dating preferences are, and whether they carry over into other aspects of life.
