As I alluded to in prior posts I think attraction for women is based on two criteria, height and race. Once you get past the height and race requirements then everything else such as looks, income and charm comes into play. However for someone who is Asiatic and shorter at barely 5’6″ I don’t meet most women’s height and race requirements.
There are two famous studies about this.
The Ugly Truth About Beauty
In the first study researchers paired shorter men next to taller men and gave the shorter ones better resumes. But in no case were the women swayed to chose the shorter men. When asked what would sway the women to pick the shorter guy they said “”Maybe the only thing you could say is that the other four are murderers.” In the other study research found that most women preferred dating men within their own ethnicity, with the exception of Asian women. Many Asian women preferred to date non-Asian men because their complaint was most Asian men they knew were short. But when asked if they would consider dating a guy if he was tall, they said they would rather not.
Recently I was at one of my friend’s 40th birthday party and I met two girls who I have seen before at a fund raiser. They claim that although there are a lot of women whom it matters to there are some exceptions. One of them is a finance professional who is married to a guy who is shorter than her and makes less money as a drummer. The other lives with her boyfriend who is also shorter than her and of a different race.
As the author of the article says: “While there is some truth to all stereotypes, there are certainly many exceptions to every single one.” And today Dick met two women who are the exceptions. One thing is for certain though women are like parking spaces the good ones are all taken.
