Short guys dating obstacles

The other notable exception is a shift and relaxation of standards when people transition between "I'm just looking to have fun" and "Okay, enough fun, now I'm looking for a life partner." In some cases, "fun" is replaced by "post-graduate education" or "career development." It's possible that some women become more willing to date shorter men as these priorities shift; in practice, I expect these would mostly be women who were always at least theoretically willing to date shorter men but were previously deferring settling down (and perhaps putting off dating for years at a time, or else restricting themselves to FWB situations and casual pickups) until the right time, and now's the right time.In many cases it's not really so much that these women relax their standards as that they turn more attention to serious dating than when they were younger.So what you want to look for is a woman who is as secure and developed as you are.

Once I admitted this and recognized it as purely egoistic, superficial and shallow and not at all a real preference, because he was sexy to me, it was easy to get over it.

I also am confident, attractive, well dressed and have a pretty clear picture of what I want to build with a partner and have been through a lot of therapy.

I feel he was my height and although he said he was 5'5, I'm not convinced. What I realized is it had nothing to do with how I how attracted I was to him but more about how I might be perceived.

Which is how I imagine a lot of men feel about dating an overweight woman while still being sexually attracted.

I've been "mismatched" with dates where I was severely underdressed for a date - didn't give a damn.

Thank you so much for recognizing that I am a secure and well-developed person who is dealing with a situation that is beyond his control.

You'll have a distinct advantage if you're well-educated, with a decent career and willing to have kids.expect these would mostly be women who were always at least theoretically willing to date shorter men but were previously deferring settling down (and perhaps putting off dating for years at a time, or else restricting themselves to FWB situations and casual pickups) until the right time, and now's the right time.

I think this true, and while it is not worth getting too bent out of shape over anymore than "thin people and pretty people generally have an easier time," it is a very backhanded compliment for a short man to hear that he is a woman's second, non-sexual choice for a partner.

The general feeling I’m getting is that if I remain fit, positive, and patient, I can expect people to be more open to dating me in my thirties.
