The height obsession in the US is ridiculous
« on: October 07, 2017, 11:04:25 AM »

Literally you are disqualified if you are short. That's why I am planning to do a safe lengthening of 5cm and then pray for the best.

In the US myself, I'm considered short even if I was 5cm taller. Too bad "shortshaming" isn't a thing.

The UK isn't that different to the USA and I don't feel disqualified.

I actually think that everywhere in the world people are obsessed with their height (and weight too). I am both ::)

 There's nowhere on earth where being tall isn't heavily preferred, and people who are shorter than average aren't discriminated against.

And if you think "height obsession" is bad in the U.S., thank your lucky stars you weren't born ANYWHERE in Asia, ESPECIALLY not South Korea. sxx or a relationship as a short man is a distant fantasy for short men in that country.

Maybe women from the US think they are entitled to their "dream" guy which is tall dark and handsome... I think from speaking with many users on the forum, girls there are EXTREMELY superficial.

Something I read today on Wikipedia regarding height discrimination.

Quote
...research by Dan Ariely found that American women exhibit a marked preference for dating taller men, and that for shorter men to be judged attractive by women, they must earn substantially more money than taller men.

Ariely found that a 5'4" man would need to make $229,000 more than a 6' man to have equal appeal; a 5'6" man would need $183,000 more; a 5'10" man would need $32,000 more.
