Heightism and dating

Demanding that any suitors be taller than 6'3" is a rather limiting request considering the average male height in the US tops out around 5'10".

"It’s mind-boggling," says Gerard, 31, who is 5'10".

But you only have to skim through a few women's online dating profiles to discover height is regularly listed as a qualifier -- sometimes, as the only qualifier, even for women of average height.

said on 6/May/17 I think this picture of Jaden and Kanye West shows jaden has to be around 5ft6 if not less, the difference in height is pretty large and kanye is only listed as about 5ft8, what do you think?

In the 19th century, baldness for men meant wearing a wig if they were to have any kind of public or professional life.

The 20th century’s youth-obsessed culture viewed baldness as old age incarnate, and fueled a billion dollar hair care and restoration industry.

I’m not above these things – I’m just not doing it now. Ovid in AD 1 said “Ugly are hornless bulls, a field without grass is an eyesore/So is a tree without leaves, so is a head without hair”.
