Short women for short men dating
But these days, with supermarkets doing all the hard work for our men (and women), what is the main strength modern women should look for in a potential partner?
Surely it's not whether men can chop down trees to provide vital fuel for both dinner and warmth, but, sadly in many of my male mates' cases, their ability to sit at desk and stare at a computer screen for long periods at a time.
The message many women send short men goes something like this: Yeah, sorry, but nothing you could say or do could ever give you a chance with me. For those of you who insist that you’re not attracted to short men, you should, at least, try to have a good reason why you’re not.
Men and women both fall prey to the (remarkably persistent) myth that sexual attraction works on auto-pilot, as if we are all preprogrammed to be attracted to the ones who captivate our attention. The type of person you’re attracted to depends largely on your beliefs. My client, Alexis, comes from the most machismo family I can imagine, full of firefighters, Marines, and gobs of Old Spice. In Alexis’ family, she was the only daughter and the men in her family were brawny and tough.
She insists, “I’m just not attracted to them.” Alexis is a smart woman, and she is also a nice person, even though her attitudes about short men are actually pretty patronizing and dismissive.However, most of my female friends admit that it's still important for them to date or marry a man who is taller than them.And not only a bit taller either, a good two inches taller is required.Then, of course, there's the equally antiquated idea that men who are vertically challenged are somehow less masculine.A study from dating site looked at 50,000 interactions over two months and discovered that the likelihood that a man under 5-foot-9 is contacted by a Manhattan or Bronx woman online is just 1.2 percent. But after we surveyed mental health experts about what qualities matter or don't matter to their clients looking for lifelong partners, we discovered that shorter men are actually husband material.
What’s worse, according to statistics, half the men in the country are my height or shorter.
