I get a lot of unwanted male attention and I've been in many creepy situations (especially at Walmart). I live in a safe neighborhood, but I still got assaulted a few months ago. I would not feel safe walking alone at night.

Do you know how hard it is to find a guy like this with a handsome face and a compatible personality? You can still be short and strong. I also like cuddling up against a larger body.

Re: Online dating thread

PR's other problems as evident from his posts here... He fails to recognize that instinct and randomness are the 2 biggest contributors to who hooks up with who. He pretends as if there is a formula he is somehow missing out on (i.e. his what can I do now to "guarantee" that I will score hotter chicks). There are no guarantees. Who you run into in the dating pool is extremely random, and dating is just a game to get the best person you think you can get depending on your preferences (honesty, looks, sexuality, etc.) The dating pool for a 5'6" guy is much smaller than for a 6'0" guy, but there is still a ton of randomness.

JKT says "I like big guys that I feel like can protect me, last boyfriend was 80 pounds heavier" and he points out the gasp, logical inconsistency that there are actually much better options for protection. Like maybe she should have sought out an Navy SEAL! But guess what, she didn't go out looking for exactly that guy. She met him, was attracted to him instinctually on a primal level, and then he probably won her over with whatever other attributes he had. That's how it works. Thus the randomness of it all.

Go find your own linebacker (or whatever floats your boat), man.

PR,

Dude who got the most/best tail in my dorm was like 5'6" but a ripped tennis player with a model face. Tall guys didn't whine about his good looks even though he got way more girls than them.

You sound like you are 5'5" and really scrawny. Yes, that is going to be more of a problem than just being short. Lots of girls want to feel safe and secure when you hold them. And lots of them want to be thrown around/dominated physically to some degree in bed. That doesn't mean you need to be Ray Lewis, but most girls won't be into a guy they feel like they could beat up. Though I'm sure there's a whole category of those too!

You also didn't answer if you have an ugly face. If you do, that makes it even harder.

Re: Online dating thread

The shorter guys that I've hooked up with were man whores. Very confident, strong build, good looking face, and large penis. PR, I think you're lacking in at least 3 of these areas.

El Diablo, look, it is not fair that he is 5'5 and ugly and scrawny. He can't help it, he was born that way. It's unfair for people to judge him for the things he cannot control.

Rogan, your height isn't your obstacle. Your bitterness is. I've dated girls who said they never thought they would date someone so short. They have one notion in advance...then you impress them with your confidence or your funny jokes or whatever and they change their mind from what they thought and they don't care. Lots of girls are like that.

When my 5'5" wife wears heels she is taller than me. I'm 5'6". The guy she was dating before me was 6'3" or something. Sure, she would prefer if I were taller if that were somehow an option. she fell for me anyway. It wasn't that big a deal.

About the biggest womanizer or playa I know is shorter than me. He is decent looking, confident, and generally never shuts up. He's not even that smart really. He just freaking goes for it and doesn't care.

Your height is absolutely not your issue.

Re: Online dating thread

Nick, slow the **** down. Seriously. You are scheduling way too many dates at once. There is almost no way it isn't having an effect and hurting your changes for success.

Breathe dude.

At the moment I am trying to visualize girls who would be attracted to this type of mindset. Not much success!

instead of height being so important for women. I just want a fair chance.
Oh my god

This is like a caricature or something I think, this can't be real

Ok anyway guys, it is time to stop piling on and making fun of the short, dumb, socially clueless, bitter guy who may or may not be ugly. We could hurt his feelings.

Steve,

I've been overweight my whole life, I'm 5 11-6 feet tall. I do fine. Currently 230.


Also, you refer to guys being less picky. That may be the case for single hook-ups, but not relationships imo.

I am very not picky when it comes to hooking up, but most of those people I have no interest in outside of sex. I am the type of person that finds something positive in everyone. I hate when people ask me my type, as I don't have one and like all kinds of women.

Post a picture of yourself if you think height is your only factor. You sounds like a tool which prob doesn't help. Also you should pm TheAceMan, you guys could be buddies.

And you continually ignore the things about women they can't control. What if they have a small rack? No ass? Any number of deficiencies like bad legs or hairy arms or anything? It's a 2 way street, you aren't special.

And yes get in the gym ffs.

This concept of wanting men who 'protect' them been a common theme with girls I have known in the past. It has always tilted me.

Re: Online dating thread

I think almost all would agree that my complaints (even if annoying) make sense. there is no reason why a hot girl should immediately discount me for my height. but that constantly happens!! girls make ZERO sense!!

This whole height protection thing is the dumbest thing Ive ever heard!!! Can someone please explain how I can't protect a 5'3 girl who weighs 100 pounds??

and im not ugly. im not a model. im average looking. i got screwed there. my family wants to know why im single yet they produced an average looking 5'5 guy. i dont know what they expect when girls are so superficial.

Re: Online dating thread

Hot girls tend to immediately discount most people for one thing or another. If you were taller, it would just be something else.

I am impressed you can protect a 5'3 girl who weighs 100 pounds from her Ray Lewis jealous ex-lover, but rubber guard is a strong defence.

You need to accept that "hot girl" is equivalent to "tall guy". There's not real reason in the modern world why a guy should logically preferred a woman with a large cup size, or a perfectly symmetrical face, but that's still what we prefer due to evolution dating back hundreds of thousands of years. Yes, there's no real reason why a woman would need a tall guy to protect her. But that's still what they prefer and they don't need a reason that makes sense int the modern world to explain it.

By preferring a "hot" girl, you are being just as superficial and illogical as a woman who prefers a tall guy. And can't you imagine a flat-chested girl voicing the exact same complaint about guys that you are?

And besides height, you haven't even given any evidence that you have any attributes that would merit a high-quality woman. Why do you think you deserve a "hot girl" in contrast to every other guy?

Re: Online dating thread

nick,

im already out of the game so why does it even matter? a girl sees my height and then discounts me. however if I was 6'2-6'6 would I need to list attributes? because I know tall guys who are normal socially and they clean up. if you shrink their height down to my height they wouldnt get laid. thats my problem with the whole unfairness.

also i dont get why people are fighting me. women are the enemy. they are the superifical ones. their protection thing makes no sense.

and I also dont know any guys that discount a girl if her breasts are too small or their face isnt that symmetrical. guys will date a wide variety of girls. I know ill date a large array of girls.

OK, but that's definitely different than your initial post where you said verbatim "I want to date a hot girl."

When you say this, you can't be surprised when people call you hypocritical for complaining that girls are superficial.

If you are willing to date a large array of girls, then put up a funny, well-written profile online, post some good pictures, and lie about your height by 2". Ask some people in this thread for tips rather than just venting..most people in this forum are doing their best to be helpful.

Then message girls that you realistically think are in your league. And stop sounding so bitter. I bet you'll get some responses.

Those two things are not alike. One is something you're born with and cannot control. The other is a choice you make to be unhealthy and unattractive .

wtf We've already given examples of short guys who get laid all the time. You could be 6'2 and I wouldn't want to date you based on your posts itt.

Women are much more likely to be sexually assaulted and raped than men are. Maybe you just don't get out much, but the world isn't that safe of a place. I probably wouldn't find you sexually attractive if you couldn't pick me up with one arm.

I know a few guys who wouldn't date a flat chested girl. How is your testosterone level?

Re: Online dating thread

Since I'm trying to attract intelligent, mature women who possibly like sports to a degree would this be a good profile picture (showing off my view)? Or does it come across as bragging and vain?



I always want to surprise women with different possessions of mine after they started liking me for me, rather than have them like me for my possessions, but I don't seem to be attracting enough women off the start.
