If You're A Short Guy In New York City, You're Fucked

NY Post – It’s a tall order dating women in the Big Apple. The likelihood that a man under 5-foot-9 is contacted by a Manhattan or Bronx woman online is a scant 1.2 percent, with Brooklyn coming in with a paltry 2.4 percent response rate, according to a study conducted by the dating siteAYI.com, which analyzed 50,000 interactions over two months. Staten Island short stacks had just a 4.1 chance of being chatted up online, and Queens mini-men rounded out the boroughs with 5.4 percent. “People in bigger cities have more options and tend to be pickier,” explained Josh Fischer, who led the study. Brooklynite Nick Rizzo knows the sting of big-otry all too well. “It’s just a fact of life that most women taller than me aren’t willing to date me,” confessed the 5-foot-7 28-year-old, who said he has found that women are often “uncomfortable” when their date doesn’t measure up. “Maybe they’re worried about how it will look to other people,” he added. But there’s hope across the Hudson. Shorties in Jersey City have a 7.6 percent likelihood of being contacted by the fairer sex — that’s a staggering 533 percent more likely than short men in Manhattan/Bronx. “Jersey City, as opposed to Manhattan, has a bit more of a community vibe. People actually get to know each other here, and are a bit more laid-back,” said Bethany, a 5-foot, 28-year-old Jersey City woman who doesn’t mind dating a short man.

Its not exactly that you’re fucked. You’re never fucked if you’re a guy. If you’re a chick, you can most definitely be fucked. If you’re fat and ugly as a chick you’ll probably die cold and alone with a slew of cats. Guys can always make something out of nothing. You can get chicks with money. You can get chicks with humor. Confidence can overcome any physical short coming. But if you’re like 5’8 you just gotta know you’re coming in at a huge disadvantage. Just know you’re fighting an uphill battle from the jump. The taller you are the easier things are gonna be, up until you hit like 6’6. Anything above that an unless you’re an NBA player you’re getting into weirdo territory. And for the most part the difference between an inch here or there isn’t a big deal. 5’10 vs. 5’11 or 6 foot doesn’t really matter. Its just about being 5’10. Once you’re there, you’re in. Its like being 21 and getting into the bar. Once you hit that height, you can play ball.

Its kinda fucked up but its the same we we demand chicks weigh like 110 pounds. Its pretty much the same sort of irrational demand. But the thing is some chicks just absolutely won’t stoop lower. Guys will always eventually crack and fuck a fat chick if they want to get their bird wet. Some chicks will just treat guys who are 5’8 like they’re fucking lepers from now until the end of time. Don’t sweat it if you’re short, though. Be thankful. Those chicks are usually fuckin Seawards to begin with. Now you just don’t even need to waste your time with them. You can go chase a chubby who doesn’t mind banging a dwarf.
