Cutting short shamers down to size

2 0 0

When you’re a short guy, the only thing worse than dating apps (trust me: women don’t search for men under five foot seven) is watching reality TV shows about dating.

There, woman after woman – no matter how brainy or seemingly down to earth – inevitably list tall, dark and handsome men as their dreamboats.

Sometimes they’ll even shudder with relief when paired with a taller man.

“Oh, thank God,” they’ll swoon, as if dodging a bullet. “You’re tall!”

No wonder so many dictators were short – hell, after watching Married at First Sight even I want to invade Russia.

There’s not even any subtlety about height shaming. Women have told me point blank they’d never date........
