This is likely the exact reason that a guy doing something similar so flagrantly right there in his profile would feel tasteless and worthy of scorn.And yet, isn't this brazen height-ism just another variation on the kind of "no fat chicks" misogyny that would seem both offensive and outdated if a guy were to just casually drop it into a Tinder profile?this is our second article from Jerome Wu, a friend of mine originally from China, who has been living in the United States (and sleeping with girls off of cold approach in nightclubs, the street, and the beach) for many years now.Three years ago, Jerome talked to us about To be tall and handsome, is that really the splitting image of every woman’s true desire?"It’s mind-boggling," says Gerard, 31, who is 5'10"."You see these women who are overweight and unattractive clamoring for a tall man on their profiles, but I can’t ask that the girl be attractive or under a certain weight.” Now, the above quote crystallizes an important point.Short men are screwed when it comes to dating, right?
