Let me explain., Amy Webb's memoir about online dating, she confesses she felt she needed a man who was at least five-ten.(Webb is five-six, making that requirement just one inch shy of the eight-percent average.) "I wanted someone to overpower me, who could wrap his entire body around me in a hug, but who could also throw me down on a bed and ravish me," she writes.However, just like I feel a need to stand up for black women, I feel a need to stand up for my brothers out here who don’t get a fare shake because of this stigma.
Don’t think that white guys don’t dodge child support too and that Don Draper fucking secretaries is just ficition.
But keep in mind that, because you're asking her to question gut-level beliefs about what she finds attractive, you need to be willing to broaden your own definition of what you find attractive—and convey to her that it does not contain the phrase "smaller than me."Of course, women also have to be willing to check their own biases about short men.
I consider short guys my natural allies and am constantly making the case to my female friends that they should stop fetishizing tall men. To go on even just one date with someone who falls outside of our eight-percent range, and to ask ourselves whether there's actually less chemistry there.
For chrissakes, I'm talking about of us getting laid here!
Only four percent of heterosexual couples feature a shorter man. Now, in order for you, a shorter man*, to circumvent this bullshit and convince wonderful taller women to date you, you have to understand why women feel this way.
