I’m 5’7” and I’m sorry but I am sick of my female friends constantly talking about height requirements. Constantly. Preferences are preferences but I would never tell a fat female friend I wouldn’t date fat women.

It’s another toxic byproduct of today’s feminist influenced society that has unfortunately normalized such behavior. Lord have mercy the howling from the women folk if men state having a bodonka as dating requirement, but they can publicly lampoon balding or short men all day long while high-fiving over mimosas and the latest man and father bashing Vox article.

It’s just society today where everyone has unrealistic expectations and always looking for perfection . Not a woman or man thing, it’s just the impact of online dating and photo shop .

Wish more women would keep the height requirements to themselves. Like saying they don't date outside their race or a certain weight. Might be true but why announce disqualifiers? Just say not interested.

That’s rude, agree.

I find this absurd and it actually makes me laugh (I’m 5’10 so under 6’0 as well). I love people with height requirements (100% out of a persons control) but if you say you want a fit person some will lambast (100% in control for most people) you for it.

5’7 really isn’t that short man. It’s basically average. Maybe they tell you because they don’t feel you’re short or that you’re desirable (you wouldn’t say you don’t date fat women to a fat woman, right)

One thing I’ve learned about women is what they say they want vs who they actually date are often very different things. If you have other good qualities you’ll be fine.

It’s odd they’re sharing it with you if they consider you to be short. It’s possible they’re trying to firmly keep you in the friend zone by letting you know they’re not interested in someone your height, but it’s a very immature way of doing so.

This really must be a thing with younger, possibly "upwardly mobile" women. Height was never discussed among my female friends when it came to requirements for dates or SOs. And the 6'0" minimum I hear about is absurd, with no basis in data or reality.

Over 30. And my friends are too. Ironically they wonder why they’re single / can’t find a guy who wants to settle down lol

5'5" here and have certainly felt that way before but I gotta say that lately I don't think that applies. I think women will give you a shot- don't discredit yourself before you try!

Completely agree, preferences are preferences but too much height difference looks awkward and not to talk about impractical in other aspects. At 5’4, I really don’t want to be with anyone taller than 5’10

I’d not tell people who don’t meet my requirements that they don’t meet them (obviously); that doesn’t mean that we don’t all have them though. Are you annoyed at their existence or communication to you?

30/M. My height (5’7”) is on my dating profile and if someone filters me out or doesn’t like me for it, so be it. I notice that I have an easier time meeting people in person than dating online, because of my personality. It’s easy to write someone out based on a few metrics.

That being said, I live in the DC area and people of all genders here are much more focused on metrics, particularly job and education. Dating here is like sitting in a job interview. “What do you do for work? Why do you work there? What degree set you towards that career path?” It’s nauseating.

My brother (19yo) starting dating someone he dated in high school again. Everyone who knows her says she is a pathological liar and manipulative. What my brother doesn’t know is that he has a lot of money to his name ($1M+) and I am scared that if/once she finds out about it, he will find himself in a very sticky situation. Our fam does not talk about relationship stuff very openly and my bro is not a big talker. Any suggestions on how to open this line of communication without scaring him away?
