I feel as if when it comes to pretty women. Good enough simply isn't good enough. Not when they can pass up good for some one great. All I can do is be the best I can be and treat her with respect and such. The cards are in her hands now as if she wants to keep me around or pass me up for something better

I'm kind of seeing this girl. She seem's perfect in my eyes. She's pretty, petite and she has a personality.
My sister she tries to hook me up with a friend that she works with. Her friend is far from I see as attractive. She's probably 5'8 and closing in on 250 pound (that's pretty hefty). So anyways I'm already interested in the girl I'm seeing so she's a work in progress, I don't want to F**k this up. I declined my sister's proposition on a date with her friend and she get's rather annoyed. She continues to state that the girl I'm seeing is by far too pretty for me and that I should be realistic with my expectations. She warns me that other guys will challenge me for the girl I'm already seeing and that I'm not good enough to hang on to her. So basically she's trying to explain that I should play it safe and go with a sure thing.
So my question to you guys is pretty simple. Is she right or wrong ? please give me some detailed insight. Thank you for reading

I guess I should get a profile review !
Posted: 9/2/2013 1:03:29 PM
I recently asked a question that had nothing to do with my profile on this dating website but some lady replied and told me to go here. I guess profile review section is the fixer of all problems.

My question in the "ask girl section" was this: So I'm finally Established... But do women even care ? I ask this because I made some Great stride within my life. Good Paying job, My own house, And I'm rather not to shabby of a looker. I'm fit and healthy. Yet I'm single and always left in the friendzone. I guess what I'm trying to say is that women in general don't see me as a potential romantic interest, It sucks I know. But perhaps some of you wise and knowledgeable lady's could help me and give me suggestions on how to fix my problems and who I should approach !
Maybe I'm approaching women that are out of my league ? Maybe alot of women want a guy with a bad boy image ?

Please be as ruthless as possible and spare the Bullsh*t

I never felt so much hate in my life :O
Posted: 4/13/2013 3:43:22 PM
Well to be honest... I'm happy for who I am and I already have a salution in regards to my height, Date petite women :) infact I'm seeing a girl who is 4'10 :D
I'm just wondering why people would waste their energy on brutaly insulting other people (apart of me thinks it's trolling)

Before reading these tweets on that page I had no idea that height was a major problem intill I looked up heightism in regards to sociaty (Dating, workplace and general social status)

I will say this, The thought of even being considered sexually unattractive because of my height is a shitty feeling :P
and I guess the majority of the women do judge on that. I'm just glad I found some one who just likes me for me.

Lol no one is more insecure than a short guy. I'm glad I'll never be that guy saying I'm 5'9 and a 1/2.


^ Hahah I kinda get what your saying. I met those kinda guys too :P
As for me I'm proud and happy at who I am and what I look like physically (5'6 and not a single care) But I do care when it comes to intence hate :P

I understand preferances but these women on twitter go as far as to verbally bash men that are shorter then average ?

But on the other side of the spectrem If a guy is as vocal about fat women then there will be extreme hell to pay.

OP.... You're probably messeging the super hotties so it kinda makes sence that you're getting rejected. Here is a thought, why don't you messege or go out and meet women more on your level of social status and physical prowess?

Op... With your main picture I get the vibe that you're a rapist going after young pre-teen girls except you can't physically rape preteen girls because they them selfs will probably overpower you and kick the poop out of you !

Just clean up and groom your face and take a better pic. That is all !

Whats the point
Posted: 3/27/2013 10:16:22 AM
OP it sucks for me to say this.... But it's your height ! (could be wrong)
But online dating site allows even the most Average and human looking women to be extremely selective. It's harsh but it's true. You could only hope for Honey Booboo's Mom to respond to you (granted if she was single and had a pof account)

Your best bet is to Stay offline and meet women in the real world

Cupid: So you’re attracted to fit/petite women with nice eye’s and a lovely smile ?

Dennis: Yes, yes I am :D

Cupid: How tall are you?

Dennis: 5’6”

Cupid: Are you athletic, do you play sports and are you out going ?

Dennis: Yes, very much so. I’m also somewhat out going but I work a lot

Cupid: Well after careful speculation and analysis I have found you a match.

Dennis: Oh ?

Cupid: …..

What does athletic mean to the women?
Posted: 3/17/2013 2:56:30 PM
On this site the term "athletic" is so over used and thrown around like nothing :/
Some guy's on here claim to be Athletic the same way Sumo wrestlers are athletic :P
I guess those people who compete in hotdog eating contest's describe them selfs as athletic :/

Women don't get off easy in my book's either. If you're clearly 50-100 pounds over don't call your self athletic or average.

That is the biggest trend I see on this site !

What is your favourite body type?
Posted: 2/24/2013 8:25:56 PM
Generaly us men would fancy a woman with a feminan physical appearace (5'3 120 lbs with a great smile and pretty eyes)

Generaly women look for a guy with more of a dominant masculin physical appearance (6'1 180-200 lbs broad shoulders and strong)

Ok so here goes I met this girl on a different site (typical social site) We inboxed each other alot before actually hanging out and once we did hang out the date went well even the 2nd date went well and she was all over me unprovoked ! Anyway's she seem's perfect for me she shares alot of my interest's and she's 4'10 petite with a great smile and eye's but she's so pretty that perhaps she could meet a guy better then me, it is possible! It’s not very often I can say I like a girl but it’s even more rare that I fall for a girl in such short notice. I normaly keep my feeling’s and emotions in check.. I can honestly say I hope I don’t **** this up

I just want to know How I should handle this ?

key note's: It's not ever day I feel like a giant next to a woman (me being only 5'5)

It's simple, She met someone better then you! Probably is an inch taller then you, a lil more fit and with bigger penis. Also keep in mind that he could have a better personality :)

Don't worrie, there's more women out there... But they probably want a man that isn't rude and with a big penis !

I lack the ability to be romantic, flirty and seductive. Help !
Posted: 1/19/2013 2:58:57 PM
In other words I can't get the women I'm attracted to because I'm not really good at flirting, Dancing, seduction and I just dont have the look of a lover ! I'm more of a friend !
This isn't just related to online dating. It's just meeting women in general ! I believe that there is something fundamentally wrong with me and that's why I fail ! Also I fully understand that being 5'6 isn't helping my cause !

I'd just like help with comeing out of my shell and meet women ! Any pointers !

I hate to say this... Unless you change your physical stature and gain some mass then you're going to have a rough time online ! Take from me, another short guy. Being short and extremely thin not doing you any good. Women want Tall/big men at least bigger then they are. And women no matter how nice and down to earth they are will be unapologetic and unsympathetic in regards to your physical stature ! Let's face it dating no matter out in public or online, it's going to be harsh !

My Advice to you is to messege and approach women more on your level !

The fact that you're physically smaller then most women isn't helping !
You're like what, 5'5 maybe 130 pounds on a good day ?

You're not ugly but you are very very very plain. Do something about it ! Hit the gym, style your hair and learn social/dating skills, Learn to talk to women !

Some girl I messeged messeged me back and made the assumption that I'm only athletic and fit because I have a physically demanding career. She said that's the difference between class and the working class...
Can any one shine some light on this. Is she just spewing out garbage or is their any truth to what she's saying ?

The fact that you are only 5'4" means that most women your height or taller might pass. Contact shorter ladies. Other than that, you sound pretty articulate and smart. Good luck!


That seem's like a winning solutions but it doesn't work so well on online dating. Men out number women 2/1, every guy that's on this site are messeging the best looking girls !

The best chance you can get is offline... People forget that every little thing comes into play, every little thing can and will be a deal breaker when it comes to online dating...

And besides women seem to love the big teddy bear kind of guy !

Well if you only Target women that you're physically attracted to chances are she is Attractive thus all kinds of guys will be after her ! So I guess as painful as this sounds, Keep your options open to "ALL" possibilities. I learned the hard way that if I only go after the hotties or even the "somewhat" attractive women that my success rate wont be all that good if any at all.. Plenty of bigger less physically attractive women will show interest in you and they might even have an awsome personality !

Should it really be this hard?
Posted: 10/14/2012 6:23:43 PM
Perhaps you're not getting any luck or any responces on this site is because you are messeging the "very" attractive women that all the other men in your area are messeging as well ? If that's the case you're going to be on this site for a while as it is a waiting game !

POF goes by a sertain logic, If she's out of your league then she probably is ! (doesn't stop me from messeging though)

And pof is an either ego boosting or very humbling experience

About leagues. . .
Posted: 10/11/2012 10:14:03 AM
here's the thing about leages...

for me I'm 5'6... and that alone is enough to put me at a lower league !

a 5'6 man equals that of a 5'7 350 pound woman !
That's my own take on things regarding leagues !

The moral of this story is to date withen your own leagues !

Easier to find gay men than interested women
Posted: 10/5/2012 9:09:09 AM

Some women haters and gay men are chiming into this black hole of a thread. If it is easier for the op to get hit on from men than women he not only puts them on the same playing field he leans towards the men.


How do you figure ? OP is probably as heterosexual as they come... I think gay men lean to him ! think about it, He's short, hits the gym only to do yoga and I'm guessing he probably has feminan features that drives masculine homosexuals wild ! For an example, Look at Anderson Cooper he was coveted by the homosexual community even before coming out of the closet !

My overall point is there has to be a reason as to why OP is attracting homosexual men instead of attractive women

Posted: 10/4/2012 1:52:13 PM
OP... When i read your profile, I got the gay vibe... I can understand why gay men hit on you. For starters you're only 5'5 so basically you're the hieght of a tipical woman . Two you're into yoga, do you even lift ? And if if you're athletic and only go to the gym to do yoga then I asume you're probably 135 pounds... 5'5 and 130-135 pounds, Yeah I'd say the reason gay men fancie you is because you may have feminan features except without the vagina and boobs... Also women like tall men i know this because I'm also very short (5'6)

Man suck it up... You're over 6 feet tall with a steady career. Those aspects are in high demand and women go crazy over taller broad men
