Not really sure how to phrase it better. I've always thought of a woman's prime (when she is the most desired/picky, benefits the most from the ratio between men desiring her and her having to pick) was much like an NBA player's prime. That is from 19-25 she may be the most stunning like an NBA player is the most athletic, but she appears to be in her prime when she is from 27 to 32 (likewise the age range when superstars begin winning titles).

I am a short surgeon in his 30s living in DC. I make a pretty decent wage, but my height or perhaps something else about me is repelling away women. Most of the women I ask out are fit and in the age range of 27-32. I really would rather not ask out a woman who is not active. Would it be better to ask out women in their mid30s-40's? Ideally, I would like to begin raising a family, but it just seems like mid20s to early 30s women are extremely picky about height. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

a woman's prime is from 18-27. After that it's all downhill.

And if you really are a surgeon you should have NO problem pulling women

Actually you should have your pick

I should have mentioned I am only 5'3". Most women have told me to my face that that is a dealbreaker.

Am I pretty much doomed or can I fix this by shifting toward a different demographic (older women)?

I've never seen a short guy have trouble with women, not because of his height anyways...

From what I've seen women are most picky when they are 18-20

A petite women may prefer a taller man, if theres attraction, your height wont be a dealbreaker. If you're a surgeon, you've got to be at least 30, if not older.

Yeah 20 somethings can be picky, but the age range you're dating seems fine.

I'm 37. I didn't have issues with dating during college, but I noticed in med school and later on it was much more difficult getting dates with women who were above 25 but below 36. I actually like women starting from their late 20s to early 30s, but am hesitant to date someone older than their mid 30s as I really want to start a family. There are a few women in their late 30s and 40s who have shown interest, but right now I'm trying to hit that 25-32 range. Not sure if that is too much to ask. Just to note: My mother had my sister when she was 39 (it was unplanned) and she has down syndrome, not to mention the rest of the evidence clinically based out there.

I find it kind of funny that you are wanting someone who is not picky about height when you are being picky about age!

I understand your health concerns with having children later in life - but I know plenty of women that have had children in their early 40's - and not a single one of the children has any issues.

In my opinion - it is better to find the right woman - however old she might be - and to try for children despite your fears or adopt than it is to find just a woman to bear your children.
