While some people find that their height doesn't impact dating at all, others may feel that it allows for judgment, fetishization, and stereotyping.In a society where there are ideals of femininity and masculinity, it can be difficult for individuals who don't fit neatly into those boxes.But then my brain started playing around with the idea and I imagined my two kids dressed up in monster costumes standing in a dark hallway deliberately trying to cock block me. Though I was relatively certain what he meant by the scared children comment, I wanted to confirm that he was making a mass generalization before I retaliated. They are fun and weird and sometimes they lose their teeth and get money for it. Why should the fact that I have children make me any less attractive? I asked him what he meant and he said that when a man finds out that a woman has children, he becomes afraid. They love chocolate and ice cream and they say weird, funny stuff. I think that is discrimination and it’s just plain ridiculous. Using an algorithm he was able to sort the women on the site, focusing on a sample of 5,000 who live in LA or San Francisco and had logged onto the site within the last month.He then created a new profile and changed his potential matches to from several hunder to over 10,000.OK Cupid found women are two and a half times more likely to get a response than men if they send the first message.They’re also reportedly more likely to snag a more attractive mate. “Everyone’s a reacher,” explain the folks at OK Cupid.“People tend to reach out to someone more attractive than they are.

Out of nowhere, this dude that I have never interacted with comes along and replies:“Children scare men.”It took me a moment to figure out what the hell he was talking about. We spoke about our random jobs that we had in our three decade adult lives, our pets, hobbies, and favorite movies. I still don’t know why men are terrified of children, but I do know that it’s lame. Those children are her universe and there is also room in it for you.
I presumed he meant that the concept of having children was not desirable to men. Single moms want to have romance and some semblance of a sex life too.
However, I also deal with so many ignorant men who make a huge deal about my height, probably to bury their own insecurity or intimidation.
They make endless unwarranted comments, trying to reassure me that I don't seem "too tall" or "too big." They'll say, "You carry it well," or "Just don't wear heels and you're fine." They act shocked when I say I'm six feet, and beg me to stand back-to-back. These comments also imply that there's a cutoff at which a woman's height becomes unattractive and unacceptable — and that luckily, I fall below it.
