1) Women absolutely, positively hate short men. Oh man, I feel sorry for you guys. It's like you're radioactive. "Keep that miserably failed disgusting midget DNA away the fuck from me, yikes! Thank you Darwin"
The chick could be 5'2 or 5'4 and the overwhelming majority say shit like, "must be over 6 foot", "no one shorter than 5'10", etc. It isn't just that a guy could be 5 or 6 inches taller than her (a dude 5' 8" dating someone 5'2"), that's not good enough, he absolutely can't be short. Disgusting. Like he has AIDS.
2) Men really punish women about their age. We all demand to date someone younger. Funny shit. "52 y/o male seeking someone in early to mid 30s", again and again and again with every demographic, men absolutely do not what to date their own age. The problem is, this plan only works if you have a lot of money.
Perhaps the reason all these losers are perceptually single is because they're just a tad too unrealistic, too picky, in denial with their "I'm not going to settle" crap where they mistakenly believe Mr/Ms Perfect will come along if they simply wait and wait and wait and wait long enough.
