I never understood this notion that what makes a guy a man is to be 6 ft 2 and up. But if a guy said, what makes a woman a true female is the size of her large breasts, is that fair to say? Girls/women would get angry about a shallow assessment like that. Now, I understand this distinction of tall men is viewed as a "protector" a "guardian" but if you look at men who fought in the World War I and World II they weren't all tall men. When you look at the past of the ancient era, not all men were tall either. As a guy who is 5'9, I play competitive sports in leagues and have been knocked down and hurt but I get up and shake it off. I have seen girls pursue guys like this and they have been either horrible fathers or lazy or even dainty/girly in a sense. I am not saying that it's a bad thing, if that's your preference of what you want in a man that's fine. But understand I also have come across girls who unfortunately have guys who are bed ridden or can't walk, God tests us in many ways. I have no gripe about tall guys or what women want but I'm just saying look at all the perspectives. This might be rude but I tend to find that the girls who are confident in herself where she doesn't rely on 100% on the advice of what her girlfriends tell her, she's chill and down to earth are often the girls who don't mind dating guys like myself who are 5'8, 5'9 w. e. I'm just keeping it real. But I get the feeling posting this will still garner backlash even though I am not attacking anyone verbally I am just explaining something through my understanding. I mean currently right now we are in a pandemic and a recession, I am not freaking out by saying "OMG HOW AM I GOING TO DEFEND MYSELF I AM NOT 6 ft 6" because that would be moronic.
