The Trouble with Hot Guys.

Ewww… no offense, but this reminds me of (or maybe rekindles?) my own insecurities about height, which IQC through okcupid BETA (2006-ish) and beyond taught me meant a whole lot more than… what was it again? “Good looks”? Being photogenic? Neoteny? LOL.

I’m not trying to pick a fight. I guess I’m just observing that the shallowness you speak of seems to correlate a whole better with above-average height than with looks. And we all know that well-nigh every woman has a unique, personal quirk, where she (and no-one else besides her) happens to like the tallest 5% of guys while snubbing the rest.

Moving on, maybe I don’t network with the right people, but it just seems awfully difficult to find tall people with opinions in general. Their relative inability to get worked up about anything is infuriating. I think one of the other commenters was onto something regarding personality development, where if someone is too ‘hot’ — for whatever reason, whether it’s cheekbones or height — they simply won’t get tested to the same extent as everyone else.

By the way, I think you might be lying just a little bit about your own efforts on those horrible dates. Surely, you weren’t trying to actually communicate something by twirling your hair when you were bored?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
