I am a 33 year old heterosexual man, and I am only 5'1". It is very difficult for me to find women who are interested in dating me because I am so short (among other reasons). Sometimes people who know about this problem of mine foolishly suggest to me that I should try to date short women. Short women have a preference against short men just as much as tall women do. The women I should attempt to date/start a relationship with are unattractive women, not short women per se. When I was 24 years old, I was a cashier at a grocery store. One of my co-workers was another cashier who was a 45 year old woman named Cathy who is 4'10". Sometimes I have heard people say that a rather ugly person is of average looks, and these people just mean that the (ugly) person is not good looking. Cathy was of average looks, and I mean Cathy was literally average (I would estimate Cathy looked better than 50% of 45 year old women). I definitely was interested in dating Cathy, but I thought that she was way out of my league so I did not want to bother attempting it. One time Cathy asked me, "How tall are you?" I responded, "I am five feet one." She said, "I am 4'10". When I was dating guys when I was younger, the guys that I dated were all six feet tall or taller, but the guy I ended up marrying was only five feet four." That conversation now makes me think that maybe Cathy was interested in dating me, but it did not occur to me at the time that she could have been interested in dating me. I thought she was hinting to me that it is possible that I could get a girlfriend despite being short, but I did not think that she was hinting that I had a chance with her. I thought also that she would never be interested in me because she is 21 years older than I am. What do you people think? Do you think that Cathy was interested in dating me/ potentially being in a relationship with me?
