fish in the pond dating - Dating man short

In the annals of “things that definitely don’t matter when you’re 70”, nothing is more irrelevant to marital happiness than height. If one partner is chronically unemployed or in debt, relations can get strained. If your partner can’t understand what you’re talking about or lacks the maturity to try, he’s a waste of time. If someone is morbidly obese, he’s probably not making it to age 70. ) But one thing that I’ve never really gotten – after 10 years as a dating coach – was women’s obsession with height. However, “when the author randomized the information as well to see what would come up by chance, he found something surprising: left to chance, the wives were taller in 7.8 percent of couples— twice as many as before. The author of the Jezebel piece is 5’11” and had a very healthy and refreshing take on height: I never felt I was making some kind of concession by dating men shorter than me — I just dated people I was attracted to.

An article on Jezebel discusses a report from the Atlantic that illustrates that the average height differential between 4600 married American couples was six inches and that the wife was taller in 3.8% of couples.

Yet some short women discriminate against average sized (5’7-5’11”) men. In order to find a guy six inches taller, I’d have to find a guy who was 6’5.

If you sense there's potential for intimacy, look for ways to soothe his nerves, with calming foods and culture that uplifts.

You might be a calming influence, or you could be just as wired.

Not necessarily, but he could seem inconsistent -- and this makes it hard to know where you stand. Whether he's the man for you depends on your own needs and his maturity.

Those with a lot of mutable energies of their own -- Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces -- could find the stability in the rhythm of constant change.

Many Geminis are nervous and have a high-strung temperament.

Since we live in anxious times already, the Gemini man could find it nearly impossible to fully wind down.

I will however add that, if you say you’re looking for 5’8″, you will get responses from guys who say they’re 5’7″, and are actually 5’6″.

But, as long as they’re cool with the height difference, and have good partner qualities, so what?

He gets antsy around those with fixed ideas -- it's claustrophobic for him.
