I wonder how many people who are short said this.
Maybe it’s cause I’m 5’ 10”, but for the longest while, short dudes would be interested in me when tall guys could’ve cared less. :/
I’m always shocked at how many people are so adamant about not having a “short guy”. I’m 5’10”, and have never felt, nor considered myself “tall”, just average at best. And once in a great while I hear that I’m “not tall enough” for someone. I just think: “Wait… in a woman, I’m not supposed to care about anything superficial, especially those things that people have no control over (skin color, breast size, body type, etc), and just look to the person.” Yet, I’ve heard a number of people that insist on that, then turn around and reject someone else because of a superficial reason… something they have no control over. I really hate the hypocrisy.
"Hey, it’s just my preference! I’m just not attracted to guys under 6’1"! I’m not superficial, I just have a preference! There’s nothing wrong with having a preference!"
Yeah, that means you are superficial. And a horrible human being, if we’re being honest. If you want to be superficial, fine… but admit it, and don’t complain when someone says they’re not attracted to you because of a physical attribute. You can’t then turn around and play “better than thou” with, “You should be attracted to the PERSONALITY, no matter what a woman looks like!” You can’t be shallow, and then complain when someone else is shallow. And don’t go and justify your shallowness by saying, “It’s a preference.”
(I hope this isn’t interpreted as some MRA or misogynist bullshit, because I am a guy… I hate those assholes more than most anything. But this is a general, “I hate hypocritical assholes and shallow people, no matter who they are.”)
"Sorry, I only date men taller than me."
Miss… you’re 6’4” without heels. That severely limits your dating pool, you know. And most men that are that tall, are physically intimidating… and they know it. Many of them like to take advantage of that, as they see their large size as a free pass to do whatever they want, because no one can stop them. Now, I’ve known several tall guys that are 5 ways of awesome, and were incredibly nice… but I’ve also seen tall guys about 20 times that number be nothing more than common bullies. Just so you know… you’re increasing your chances of getting an asshole.
A common reason I hear is, “I just feel safer with a man who’s bigger than me.” Doesn’t mean you ARE safer, by the way.
I just don’t understand any of it. Why should sometime so silly as height matter?
The only thing I do know is that every one of those twitter-users listed here are shallow assholes.
