What double standard? She was probably sizing you up for your wedding tux.

Or she wanted to know your BMI.

Another relationship thread by the Craigslist prowler, and yet on week-end's he is not out meeting women, being with real people, but is posting on relationship forums, probably from his mom's basement.

Thank you, I was wondering when someone would make this point. When you are out in public, you already have an idea of the weight of the person you are interested in. When you are looking online, it makes perfect sense to ask for their stats, unless you have no preferences whatsoever as to what they look like or what kind of shape they're in.

If it's a problem, just tell them you're height-weight proportionate - IF you actually are. If that's not good enough, move on to the next victim.

I'm sure this won't stop the next ridiculous thread or the usual moronic female bashing. I just thought I'd give it a shot.

I can be asked anything as along as I can ask you the same question. Do you think I'm going to let a woman ask me something and then she refuses the answer the same question? That's BallShet

The worst question women currently ask men but men would be considered gross asking women is the obvious "how old are you ?"
Even if the guy looks reasonably young, if he admits to being older than , say , 39, it's a downturn to any female aged 20 to 60 (he can still endeavour something with grannies, though, if he wants to play a remake of Harold and Maud...)
