Sorry, but I'm not buying the Brooklyn Bridge today.

I went on a date last night with a man who is 5'5 to my 6'1. It was an online thing, and at the end of the date he told me he didn't think it would work out because 'he didn't realize how tall 6'1 really was' haha.

His loss but it just shows that it's not always 'short guys' that are rejected for their height.

What an insecure moron.

Nothing at all about YOU as a person, who you are, what you care about, what your aspirations are, nada, none of that. Oh, but 6'1"... nope, no way, no can do.

He's just as bad as some of these women who reject men for being too short. Yeah, thanks pal. Way to go.

Here's something a old dude told me. He asked why are dog poo and women alike? The older they get the easier they are to pick up. Not a great way of making a point but I got it. Your a doctor with or have the potential to have money. The women have the physical parts. You have the capacity to make more money and the women deal with graveity and at some ppoint start to become invisable..

These things are just a part of life.. Do a package check and understand yout he man and go out and meet women.. If they act funny it's their loss.. Find yourslef a current struggling plain Jane who will pop out a few kids and treat you well.. That's all folks

I thought it was hilarious, because we got along quite nicely. I mean, height isn't exactly relative (unless you really want to get into the sciencey aspect of it, but I digress) and 6'1 is generally 6'1 across the board.

I still had a nice time with a decent guy and it's a bummer it didn't work out. Better I find out now than later though.

I'm thinking on Looks more than height for the OP. Maybe a make over?

I was at my favorite dive bar last night and talking to a friend whose always complaining she can't find a boyfriend who she is attracted to. There's a mutual aqaintance of ours who has been interested in her for years and they had gone out once or twice in the past as friends. When she was complaining of the lack of interest in her, I said "what about Brad?". She acted like Brad was a Troll in her response. She's 5'9" to Brad's 5'4" so I had assumed it was because of his height, but the Troll response said "Looks". She said "it's because of the way he looks and had no problems with his height". Brad is not bad looking in my opinion but has frumpy hair, 10 year out of date glasses, and 20 year out of date clothes. Brad is too old and stuburn to change anything about himself so he is doomed. Of course those who can easily adapt to change to fit the situation are the most successful in life. Applies to many unsuccessfull men and women I know.

The phrase "If they don't like me the way I am then screw them" tells me the person is doomed to be unlucky in love. If you can't change your look or dress to be a little more attractive then you deserve what you get. I did this in my early 20s on my sister advice: Lost the Mullet and funky Mustache and never looked back, JK sorta

So, to the OP. Invest in a make over consultant.

For some women, height is a major issue. I'm 5'3" and my general rule of thumb is I try not to date men shorter than me. It doesn't mean I'm going to write off a great guy because he's 5', but at least with me being short, the odds are in my favor.

To me, it sounds more like a personality issue, and you are letting the height thing get in the way of your confidence. There is nothing more sexy than a confident man, (mind you I mean confident, not arrogant or cocky) and if you have that, then everything else should fall into place.

My last boyfriend had self esteem issues when we met because of his height also (he's 5'6"). After we broke up he said he owes me his life, because I helped him be more confident and comfortable with himself and in his skin. And mind you I make 3 times what he makes. And now he has women hitting on him all the time.

Point is, you have the financial means, you have a career, height is not an issue at all for the right person. However stop writing off women in their mid to late 30's just because of age, because that's BS. I have a number of friends who had kids after 35 and have had no problems at all.

It's not exactly the same situation, but I have a female friend (who's now married) who was tall, kind of heavy, and with a brash personality. She knew she wasn't going to be most guys' cup of tea, but she never approached dating as if she was unworthy of finding a good relationship or that she was inherently flawed. She dated a lot, too, for the "kiss a lot of frogs" reason. I think some of these guys are already so down on themselves that they're their own worst enemy.
