Quote about dating like a man
For example, when it comes to the better-protector argument, the truth is that plenty of short men exist whose overall weight and muscular strength far eclipses that of many tall men, but that logic doesn’t seem to persuade many women to give a short guy a chance. I wonder if passing on short men as potential romantic partners—really, if sexual attraction overall—borders on a moral issue. Who would protect me from big scary men hiding in the alleys?
(And don't get me started on the deep voice argument.) Most importantly, what is completely illogical about the stigma of short men is how the physical size of a man has so little to do with who he is on the inside, and it’s precisely internal—aka personality—characteristics that matter in terms of how good a partner or husband a man can be. I always cringe when a person says something that rules out an entire category of people, especially when someone rejects another in a flippant, auto-pilot fashion. Perceptions of infidelity risk predict women’s preferences for low male voice pitch in short-term over long-term relationship contexts. For me a romantic relationship is useful: keeps me from being lonely, he can protect me from things like bears and creepos, sexual satisfaction, and we can depend on each other for emotional and financial support.
When you want to let the man in your life know how you feel, don’t shy away from words.For reasons that betray logic, short men get the you-know-which end of the stick and are ostracized when it comes to partner selection. —is also at work in the dynamic of sexual attraction among gay men, I'll focus on women here due to sheer numbers. Not quite, though it does seem that most women feel that short men aren't relationship material.Having heard short male clients of mine complain about their jeopardized status in the dating pool, I can speak for at least some of them when I say that short men believe that women see them as less than or deficient, as if models pulled off an assembly line because they don’t measure up to the others.Anecdotally, I have heard more than my fair share of female clients disclose how a sense of security and protection are key factors. My point is that I wouldn't be as attracted to someone who couldn't keep me safe.One client, in particular, told me that she feels “more secure” when she is out and about with a tall man, while she clarifies that she'd feel more nervous if she were with a man who could not protect her physically in case she were somehow threatened. So many of the possible explanations of why women don’t seek out short men sexually or romantically don’t make logical sense. I would most likely not be attracted to a man who's shorter than me and not very strong.
It is simply for me that when a short guy holds you it feels like a little kid is holding you.
