Women always wanting men quite taller than themPage 14 of 25    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25)

After a lot of years interacting with men, being married for half my life, my experience is - find a guy who makes you laugh, has your back, respects you, has a job, has interests that you can share or do your own, a guy who wants to share the kitchen and the bedroom, who encourages you to grow, has an open mind. Things like height and hair aren't as important as character, charm, intelligence and empathy. I'm at the age where when I take my glasses off, most men look hot...as do I.


Well, it’s possible that a man could lose his job when you’re in a relationship with him, and it’s also possible that an unemployed man could get a job when you’re in a relationship with him.


But from what I've observed, Asian girls here won't date non-Asian men.


Wrong. Statistics show that the odds favor Asian women and Caucasian men on dating sites. I’ve seen a lot of marriages and relationships between Asian women and Caucasian men in real life.

My friend. Well, more like an acquaintance now is with a Vietnamese Woman and has a 6 year old daughter with her. He has been with her around 9 years now, and met her on zoosk. He got with her because he was sick of Caucasian women just being shi!t with lack of morals. Exactly what he said.

She ain't no hoe. Very respectful, and very self respecting. She kind of looks down on western women as she sees them as easy, no morals. She obviously had a strict upbringing.

Do you always take things so literally? Do you take a comment and suck the marrow from the bone or just let it go and take at it is - just a comment, a statement, and opinion?

Sometimes I read stuff on here and I think "I can't believe that person is single because they are so open minded, witty, seem easy to get along with, don't seem to sweat the small stuff, charming, intelligent, etc.". And then other times - nope, I get nothing.

Oh gosh yes. This is a must have. Along with your own bathroom~

Men are women are better off not living together at all. If I'm ever dumb enough to do it, I hope someone kills me.

I’m no miser when it comes to helping people out with money who really need it. I bought a homeless man dinner when I saw he was rummaging through the trash. Some people think they all about another person based on a few posts on the internet.

^^ I generally give them the money to decide. But sometimes its best to give the money to the local homeless shelters.

I was just referring to Asian women around here. I only know one mixed Asian/Caucasian couple here and she was actually adopted by Caucasians when she was a baby. I do know though that when I lived in Manitoba it was quite common to see mixed Asian/Caucasian couples. I think the thing is that most of the women who come here from other countries are already married. Most of them are Filipina nurses who I work with or know because they have kids in school with mine. Growing up, my geographic area, Saskatchewan, was 60% white, and 39% native Canadian,with a small bit of Chinese people who owned the corner stores and some restaurants. The only black people were doctors from South Africa--at one time virtually all the doctors in Southeast Saskatchewan seemed to be from South Africa.

Well Filipino women tend to like white guys but more specifically Americans. Filipino culture is very Americanized, after all it was an American colony and the best thing we ever did was give them freedom. Imagine is we held that country as a commonwealth like Guam/Puerto Rico.. our obligation would bankrupt us since country is very poor.
The below is just general observational stereotyping:
As for Asians liking ..white guys, I find it to be true based on nationality or not true based on the same. Korean girls for example don't like white guys that much anymore. Decades of US military presence has taken away that allure.

Japanese women in general like white guys but it could just be they like Americans since my black former military co workers were doing well in Japan. My best friend is married to a Japanese women. Seems a lot of them are tired of Japanese men though.
As for Chinese. I am sure most like THEIR own kind just like most races/nationalities worldwide do, but many will date white guys simply because white guys are seen as more assertive. That being said I don't attract appeal to most Chinese. When they like white guys I notice they want blonde/light eyes, probably because it is something their own men can't provide. In fact part of Chinese and Korean pop culture atm is wearing blue/green contacts and painting hair blond/light brown.

My brother is married to a girl who came from Hong kong when she was 2 yrs old. Although she told all her friends my brother looks like Alec Baldwin , she admitted she didn't like him "look wise", it was other qualities that got them hooked up. They were also friends for years before dating and had common friends.

As for SouthEast Asians, very sensitive subject. The upper class would rather die then date a white guy. I am exaggerating but it isn' t considered cool in some countries like Thailand. An uppe rclass Thai more likely date a white guy in the west. But the lower class and lower middle class will often date white guys in a NY second because o the possibility of children having whiter skin. So it is complicated.

My husband was 6'2" and I'm barely 5'1". No one ever asked him why he was with a kid or a dwarf. Assuming so is like women assuming that a short man, say 5'7", also has a small d!ck. Or that he has a small mind, less room for a larger, functioning brain. Some women find short men, say 5'7", are basically Munchins and not even real men, just kind of like mini men.

See how easy that was.

No it doesn't. This is one of the problems why some people (not saying you) can't grasp the fact that the # of people one has had (hetero) sexual intercourse with -- is basically the same among men & women, since the # of men & women is basically the same.

That scenario does Not Mean (=) each man only had sex once. You Really think each of those guys has only had sex with Her? :)

Take an island with 5 gals, 5 guys. Sally bangs all 5 guys at once. The other 4 girls are twiddling their thumbs, watching. The average # of how-many-you-slept with is Equal, among men & women: 1.


Maybe the average % is equal, but the fact remains if a gal is porked by 10 guys each 10 times, she had sex 100 times and each guy only had sex 10 times. The one woman did have more partners and more casual sex than each of the 10 guys. It is easier for women to find casual sex. I’m sure not too many people would disagree with that.

When you ONLY look at that, sure - LOL. I had sex with 10 different women one year, when on the rebound. Twice each! I had sex 20 times that year, each woman that year only had sex only twice! See the problem in this reasoning? :) I'm making a false statement. It'd be silly to assume *I* was the only guy porking them. Yeah, yeah, suuure. My suave charm & that cologne I got on special thru Amazon made it happen -- there's No Way they'd have casual or uncasual sex with anyone else butt me. ;)

It is easier for women to find casual sex.

It is, but that's beside the point. Every time her # goes up, the guy's # goes up. And vice versa. It equalizes out. That's the point. Emotionally, we're not set to accept this in society. When they do surveys about how many of the opp-sex you had sexual intercourse with, every damn time, guys' # is way higher than gals'. Although the common person would acknowledge it may be skewed due a sensitive subject, they are at all loss as to why the # should be roughly Equal. Most people believe men slept with more women than women slept with men.

It'd be like talking about girl-guy dancing. How many different gals have you danced with, [Guy Surveyed]? How many different guys have you danced with, [Gal Surveyed]? The overall # for each should be roughly equal.

Holy f*ck. Ok, as much of a scumbag as this guy may have been, you do hold yourself accountable for giving him that kind of money, yes??

I assume you're referring to men in general here because a woman's money is the last thing on Earth I need.

I was bemused by one experience I had on POF.

This was in the days when there were no age restrictions.

I contacted a woman that was ~20 who lived quite close to me. She liked to ride bikes and talked about the local bike trails that I also ride on. I was thinking it would be fun to ride with someone ~40 years younger.

We MSGed a couple of times, but she thought I was too short for her. It bemused me so much that I never got the chance to explain that I had a GF in Thailand and was only interested in friendly bike riding. (Though I am a guy and wouldn't kick her out of bed, it wasn't my primary reason for contacting her, I wasn't interested in dating anyone else). The convo got sidetracked then she deleted her profile.

So being 40 years older wasn't a deal breaker, it was being 5.4 that was important.

🙄 Now now children...get along please.

We all have optimum preferences but most of us settle on quite a bit in the end. Its just important to settle on the right things cause in the end we all get old and wrinkly.

I think, ultimately, what matters most is that a person is someone we are okay with being around our friends and family. I want someone who can get along with my brothers and my kids (I can accept if my mother is less than happy with him). And he just has to be at least close to my height. If he's shorter than me (but no more than 5'7) then he can't be too skinny. I have dated guys who I think I could stay dating but who I would be embarrassed introducing to my family as a boyfriend. I was always embarassed about my ex and hid it well but I constantly wondered what everyone thought of him. My family and friends hid it quite well when I was with him but after we broke up wow the stuff everyone told me after made me feel ashamed that I stayed with him that long. The biggest reason I never married him is because I would have felt too ashamed standing up in front of everyone and saying vows. I never want to feel that way again. I really want a guy I can be proud of. Both looks and character come into it.

Why oh why would you base a man's eligibility on what you think others will think and how they will judge you for being with him?

Sweet girl....recognize that you are co-dependent. You need to develop some self respect and stay true to you. . It's number one that counts....pun intended....lol.

You mean, like when a group of gals are dancing together - a party of 'Besties' - and a guy shuffles into the group and gets in the middle of the circle to show off his moves?
Yeah, he's dancing with 8 women - so that counts, right? That's how junior high boys add up their 'total'.
A lady doesn't dance with a group of guys the same way -- unless she's hammered out of her mind, or being filmed for a porno.

Our behaviors are as different as the 'math' used to figure out hookups - and since nobody is completely honest, neither is the math.
