The other notable exception is a shift and relaxation of standards when people transition between "I'm just looking to have fun" and "Okay, enough fun, now I'm looking for a life partner." In some cases, "fun" is replaced by "post-graduate education" or "career development." It's possible that some women become more willing to date shorter men as these priorities shift; in practice, I expect these would mostly be women who were always at least theoretically willing to date shorter men but were previously deferring settling down (and perhaps putting off dating for years at a time, or else restricting themselves to FWB situations and casual pickups) until the right time, and now's the right time.In many cases it's not really so much that these women relax their standards as that they turn more attention to serious dating than when they were younger.
A complicating factor is dating across wide age ranges.I’m not really into larger women but at this point I’d be willing to be in a relationship that was more about companionship because it doesn’t really seem like I’m gonna be able to date anyone that turns me on.I guess I’d rather have a not-very-passionate relationship with someone who cares about me that just be alone.You'll have a distinct advantage if you're well-educated, with a decent career and willing to have kids.expect these would mostly be women who were always at least theoretically willing to date shorter men but were previously deferring settling down (and perhaps putting off dating for years at a time, or else restricting themselves to FWB situations and casual pickups) until the right time, and now's the right time.I think this true, and while it is not worth getting too bent out of shape over anymore than "thin people and pretty people generally have an easier time," it is a very backhanded compliment for a short man to hear that he is a woman's second, non-sexual choice for a partner. Any chance my prospects might improve over the next couple of years?
About once a year I hook up with someone (usually one party or the other regrets it) but finding someone to date or hook up with repeatedly is like looking for water in the Sahara.The general feeling I’m getting is that if I remain fit, positive, and patient, I can expect people to be more open to dating me in my thirties.A strong runner up for second is that, because personality is everything and nobody cares about height in dating, I must have no confidence and a shitty personality, and while I maintain this is not the case, that, too, is a valid argument. My perception is that there's an excess of women who care a lot about height and a shortage of men who are tall enough to suit them; conversely, there's a shortage of women who don't care about height and an excess of men who by some women's metrics aren't tall enough.Some people relax their standards as they get older; this is put forth as one of those signs of maturity which is lacking in younger people.In practice, fundamental standards of attractiveness don't change much, except for changing standards for age, with women in their forties typically being more willing to date men with graying, thinning hair than women in their twenties.Once I admitted this and recognized it as purely egoistic, superficial and shallow and not at all a real preference, because he was sexy to me, it was easy to get over it.
