Gary dating profiles
You know, something like this: "I will only date men 5’11" and over," says Annabelle, a 35-year-old woman standing at an above-average height of 5'11".
"Height is important to me and I don't want to be taller than the man I'm with.
Here's a common one: "I like to wear heels, so if you're under (insert desired height) swipe left." And it's not even just requests for guys who are slightly taller -- in some cases it's pushed to the statistical edges of male height.
Demanding that any suitors be taller than 6'3" is a rather limiting request considering the average male height in the US tops out around 5'10".
Because deep down inside we know we can’t control everything, we get more anxious about this. And before you know it, you’re going to be too busy rearranging your closet to find an hour this week to meet for that cup of coffee. You might like him but your anxiety has become so strong that you find yourself making so many excuses to your friends to justify turning him down — he texted me, he should have called or he’s still in school and I’ve graduated, we are in different life stages.
The reason we feel anxiety is because we get scared. It’s natural for us to want to be received well and liked.
When that becomes our obsession and keeps us from dating, then it becomes a problem.
No one here is claiming that guys aren't guilty of being shallow, too.
If anything, men have earned their reputation for being superficial over the course of many generations.
