    You do realise its women you are talking about? Although superior to men in every other every way, when it comes to judging others or potential partners, women are the harshest and most uncompromising of all.

    In fact, the way some posters talk here, If I was a dwarf I would be pretty offended
    I think it works both ways. Most of the horrible people I have known in my life have been blokes, but then the few who have had the ability to be insidiously nasty are women. I'm not about to split hairs here, because there are men who will turn down women on the basis of them being taller and therefore being 'emasculated'.

    I work on the basis that because I have a ****, I am a man and that won't be changing.

    Why would it be a joke?
    I'm not surprised by it really. Standard misandric sentiments which are so pervasive as do be deemed the norm. Double standards in favour of women is rife within society. Ask yourself how people would have responded if he'd said the opposite?

    Highlighted typo. Just so you know that I've bothered to read your post.

    I can completely appreciate where you're coming from, but I wasn't looking for a serious discussion on this.

    I'm male, by the way. Just another man with a superior woman at his side.
    I thought you were a guy. That's why I wasn't surprised.

    Any height really, but less tall than me (5"9) might be pushing it. Tall is good!

    Ideally around the same height as myself, not shorter though.
    So from about 5'6- 5'8 max. I don't know, it depends a lot on the guy.

    Actually in the UK it's more like 5'10.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_height
    It's close to 5'10, but not actually 5'10 in most parts of the world, even the UK.

    5'9 isn't small, and if it is, it's not noticably small. Again more or less average height.

    Another thing I've noticed about this thread is how many tall women tsr has.

    15-20% of women are 5'8 and above yet most them who've posted here are above that. Interesting.

    Most women prefer taller guys, so if you're a shorter guy, the best thing to do is learn how to be successful from other successful short guys. AtEyeLevel.co is a short guy site, or look for other short guys here who can help step your game up.

    I currently stand at 5'8. Personally; I prefer girls who are 5'6+, and who are noticeably taller than me in heels.

    Being 5'8; I am probably in the very middle-rungs in regards to the range of the most common female height. This means that I have talked to many girls who are both taller and short than me, by more than nominal amounts. Suffice to say, it is remarkable how much of an effect height has on the dynamic of the conversation. I have noticed that if a girl is taller than me and has the ability to look down on me while she is talking to me, she is naturally more confident as a result; and I love confident girls.
