I think facially I may be good enough for dating apps, it may be borderline but I'm not sure. The height thing is of some concern. If asked about it, I will reply that I am 5'8"(1.5-2 inches taller than I am), in which case I'll forego meeting up if she's like 5'7"+ and clearly concerned about it

Is this an acceptable strategy for short dudes? What do you guys think?

I think going up an inch (classic for my height: 1.78 rounded up to 1.80) is common. If a girl decides to meet a guy who indicates he is 5‘8‘‘, i.e. a rather short guy, I doubt him being an inch or two shorter will be perceived as deceiving or even a deal breaker by many.

Wait, is that actually Wolf Pack? If so, not at all what I expected.

I'm also very sure that the increase of the "incel/mgtow" community is because men think Dating Apps = real life. So if I don't have matches on Tinder, I'm ugly and its over.
I do not take anything from (nor have I ever used) Tinder seriously. There is also the matter that only 30% of Tinder matches actually ever meet.

In fact, the only thing I can really agree with online in general is that "looks do actually matter" but most of the rest is info you'd be a fool to follow.

I've got hate for it on places like HairLossTalk but IDGAF, I stand by it: This incel/mgtow rage comes from the sorry-ass state of most modern men.

Most guys today are pathetic. It's true. So many of my fellow man have no care about their appearance; they don't workout even a little, they don't care if they go bald, grow patchy and shitty-looking facial hair, etc. and would rather spend 8 hours a day playing video games than doing anything that actually builds themselves up socially, their character, intelligence, artistic pursuits, etc. Most men from like, my grandparents generations, at least had one talent or useful skill they were good at. Drawing, archery, hunting, sports, etc. because that is what they had to spend their free time on. The average man today has little skill in anything meaningful and is not capable of holding up a conversation regarding any cultured/intellectual subject. I.e., they're boring.

and worst is, these guys have retarded and petty expectations of potential mates; expectations they'll never meet. It's not enough for her to just have a pretty face and be fit. *"Brunettes? Ugh, not into them." "Visibly brown eyes are ugly af." "Hmmm...tits could be bigger", etc. I'll never forget on HairLossTalk a while back, I was saying these people had too high of standards, some guy agreed with me, and I posted this pic of Shania Twain and said the forums would give her a 7 at best.

Image

Same guy who just agreed with me then said this is a "six" out of ten because "women should be held to a higher standard than men" just fucking lol. THAT is, in his world, just 1 fucking point above the absolute middle and he wonders why he's single. I was recently trading pics of "hot or not" with a friend over text and at one point I sent this vintage playboy pic of this crazy hot woman (Lisa Welch if you're wondering) and he's like "nah, bush is a pass"...really? Like just push it to the fucking side, as if you'd even know this if you met this woman IRL and as if you're in any position to bargain. This is a member of the "free the nipple" generation and he'd "pass" over this. You call yourself a man and you're afraid of some follicles.

I was at an outdoor show last week and in my immediate vicinity, without leaving my seat, I counted at least 10 women, between the ages of like 20 - 40-something I'd have absolutely no problem going home with. All I could think was "do her, do her, do her too, do her..." not "Pass if she doesn't have green eyes, DD tits and hardwood floors". I couldn't give one fuck. Sure, some of them were better-looking than others, but they were all pretty enough. I got a boner just watching this one MILF in front of me bending over on all fours on her picnic blanket.

If you can not go out to a public event like that and have a similar experience and also count a double-digit number of women you'd want to get with, and do so on a fairly consistent basis, you're standards are simply too high and those standards come from too much time watching porn or looking at instagram and shit where people have got model-perfect shots and editing.

Because I don't care what you say, it's fine to have preferences, but there are more than enough attractive women out there who are not model-perfect, and a man who puts in effort to both his own looks (hair is a big deal here!) and himself as a person should have no trouble getting with one unless you were REALLY fucked on the genetic lotto.

Once again, I'll have them shit votes to go plz

I'm sure those guys exist, but they are clearly a minority. Most guys I know and see (at least here in the not too rural parts of Switzerland) do a lot to be at least average or above - and not only they, but also truly good-looking guys have very humble standards, especially when it's only about having sex. I'm not into models, but I cannot go below a certain threshold in order to feel attracted and actually have fun, even though the "technical" part of the sex was in one case really good when I tried - but it still felt wrong to me.

I assure you they are not.

Every time I see someone say "oh, they're probably a miniority" it has, to date, always been someone from Northern or Central Europe. I have a lot of European family and know quite a few people who've lived over around where you do and they have all said the same thing: The people there give a lot more of shit. How the Italians dress nice, etc.

A lot of the hobbies, fashion, etc. that is fairly common in much of Europe is considered feminine and "gay" by most North American men. This has roots in the difference between the foundings of Europe vs North America, and how most people in the former have historically tried to emulate the nobility/upper-class. As you probably know, America has a pretty strong history of trying to not be like the British/Europe in general.

My grandmother offered my brother-in-law tea and he told her, to her face "No, I have my man card". If it's made of silk, it's for girls. Horseback riding, unless you're a cowboy, it's also for girls. Cowboys are gay. You're a man and you work in an office or human resources or retail? Gay lol you should come work in the oil patch! "I've never worn a suit in my life". There are no school uniforms and there is barely a dress code. "Painting, drawing, music (unless it's Five Finger Death Punch) and certainly theater are for faggots. You should play football!" etc.

I've been all across most of Canada and the USA and this kind of attitude is very, very common among men here. Everything is about being a man's man and pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. Most men here fit more to the aesthetic of Larry The Cable Guy than a Feudal Lord.

This would match with what I have experienced when travelling in the USA. Now, with my slim frame, my way of dressing, not being handy etc. a lot of people would probably perceive me as effemiate or gay, but at the same time I‘d have some sort of niche, as it‘s just not that very common to be well-groomed, slim at 36 and to be able to talk about other stuff than engines or baseball. But I‘m a little surprised those are the ones being particularly picky. But even if and whatever the reason for that: as long as they are aware of it (or don‘t mind being made aware of it) and don‘t complain about not getting any action ad a result, I cannot blame, say, a 3 only being genuinely artracted to a 5 and up.

I've never heard anyone mocked for working in an office. I've also known plenty of male musicians and in many cases they are admired by their peers for their talent. Even in the military in a male dominated MOS where everything was a constant dick measuring contest people didn't act like you describe.

The sports thing, yes, it is generally looked upon favorably if you were involved in athletics growing up

Feel free to come to Switzerland/Germany and we can go out approach some women :) You will be surprised how many tall, tanned, well dressed, full and thick head of hair, with muscles, will approach women left and right. And after you can try with a balding head. I guess the US is a little bit like England.
In England, a lot of people let themselves "go" and don't care anymore. I crushed it in London with my friend cause we went out well dressed and approached women not drunk and with 4 bottles of beer in our hands.

Many expats here in Switzerland told me how surprised they are that nearly EVERYONE in Zuerich goes to the GYM after work. BDD is strong here bruh.

1) Shania Twain is hot.

2) On the other hand, I do remember you saying on HairLossTalk that women like Daisey Ridley and Felicity Jones are common and widely available. That was a strange comment in its own right.

It's a common attitude, but it might be much more common in Bible Belt Alberta.

My friend used to date Daisy Ridley, I didn't know him at that time but his other friends said when he was going out with her nobody even acknowledged her as being that fit lol. Though she would have been early 20s (I think, maybe even late teens) and apparently looks a lot more attractive now.

I'd say she's like 7.5/10, with my nitpicking fussy internet hat on.

Update- actually I just googled as a reminder and I take that back, she's a babe, solid 8 or above and anyone meeting her in real life would get a semi. She has got a tad bit of goofy about her and a prominent forehead but no, great facial structure and cheekbones/smile and probably an incredible petite body.

Why did they break up?

It's entirely possible that she was less fit back then.

Lol yeah because he's no Chad. His current girlfriend ain't no Daisy Ridley (that must be really depressing actually? And the girl might even feel inadequate)

I have no idea why they broke up and know little about the relationship (it wasn't him who said it and he wasn't around, other friends randomly mentioned it and it was verified by another, it was only like a minute long conversation). I don't even really know how it happened because he lives on the east coast of Ireland, I was thinking maybe she studied there because there is a college but no mention of that when googling, unless he lived in England which I'm unaware of (that said he probably has no idea that I lived in England).

I'll text him now and randomly ask him about his famous ex from several years ago because my fellow baldites need to know.

There is always the saying: "Even for the hottest girl, there is a guy that is tired of her shit" or something like this.

In my opinion, this guy is very lucky that he isn't together with Daisy Ridley anymore. He fucked her before going big in Hollywood and now has a nice fucking story to tell to his friends. And I believe it will also help him with his current girlfriend/wife because she will feel that she have to keep up with a Hollywood star. That's good. Women love to have a man that is desired.

Second, would you want to date a woman that is big in Hollywood? I wouldn't. With all the casting couch stuff (she probably sucked some dicks for her Star Wars Role) and having sex scenes and stuff?
