I'd really appreciate if we could all stop asking "How tall are you? 'Short man syndrome' is a condition in which a person has to deal with a feeling of inadequacy which can come from a lack of height or a perceived lack of height.Technically it is a form of inferiority complex in which the person attempts to overcompensate for their perceived shortcoming.The term is often used as a derogatory term also to describe those who are perceived as acting this way.But while women say they have a "type"—they love bearded gingers or get off on guys in glasses—they don't filter out man who doesn't meet those specific physical criteria. It's a sweeping prejudice masquerading as sexual preference.When one guy changed his height on his Ok Cupid profile from his actual 5'4" to an average 5'9", his response rate nearly doubled. The average woman is eight percent shorter than her male partner.Of course the ability to search for people who meet our criteria is part of the appeal of online dating.
If you won't do it for yourself, try it for my sake.
