So are short men really that unattractive to women? The average height for men is 6ft (I think). 4'9ft ,really? That would suck.
At 5'10, I feel short sometimes.

I'm going to go with the primal mating thing, but I am not speaking for all.

Ironic that top models have to be tall and are gorgeous, but most go for rich men who are shorter than they are.

Exactly, it's the money. Look at Trump. Melania is so hot. In my 20's or 30's I'd have no problem getting a 9 out of 10 like her. Now it's a different story(mind you ,I haven't tried) But...your right, it's primal. Don Trump is over 6ft. I guess it's like men being attracted to a 7 to 10 hip to waist ratio.
With my Daytons on, I'm slightly over 6 ft....still not tall enough for 'NormaM'. :biggrin:

No matter if the woman is 4 foot 5 her profile will usually say she is looking for a guy 6 feet tall.
If you decide to try online dating Old Trucker I am happy to help you craft your dating profile ( used to do a lot of profile reviews)
And help you try to navigate the murky waters of OLD. ( on line dating)

Don't waste money on a paid site, most ppl are on All the sites.

Right now I'd just like to land a sugar Grandpa :)

I suspect this is more true than not, be careful out there.

Internet dating sucks so far I've met 3 types repeatedly
#1 washed up barflies hoping to salvage a future before they dry up & these 1s are psychotic, possessive stalkers with countless ex's.
#2 wierdo shut-in women that never get out & expect everything to be like a TV show.
#3 bossy feminist SJW types that can't see why they are single, irritating the bleep out of you over explaining why it's us stupid guys fault she been single for countless yrs, don't I agree? These types want a submissive guy that's model looking & rich... Wonder why they might be single?
I have better luck meeting good women just talking to them when I meet them wherever I might be.

The older you are, the more baggage potential partners (male and female) will have, and the less likely you are to find someone who is emotionally, physically, and financially healthy. And I don't mean rich, I mean someone who's able to pay their bills.

I know there are relatively few young people on this forum, but I bet if you spoke to someone under 25 about their experiences on Tinder, Bumble, etc, you'd hear a much different story. It's become a completely normal way to meet someone.
My fervent hope is that you and your tax dollars will be reunited in the afterlife.

^^^^Yes, I agree. In my age group the women are well past their "best before date", and the ones that are single and actively/aggressively looking, are single for very good reason. I have given up and have never been happier.
I make more money. I eat what I want, when I want it. I don't have to put the toilet seat down. I get more rest and much better sleep, and I can fart out loud without having to leave the room.

Alan, nearly 5' 11". Short guy magnet.
I am happy if I don't end up as a skin suit after a date :/
Tinder is more like an ego boost. Easier to meet ppl the old fashioned way - storming castles, witch hunts, etc.
NOt sure about baggage but ppl do get set in their ways. Nearly every man who msgs me no matter their age seems that way.
