Height League Table - The Ultimate Scorecard in Life & Dating - Let's end this!!!!!

This is gonna be a rant. Enough with all the height posts lately, I'm sick of all the insecure dudes that moaning about what's absolutely out of their control. 

"I'm 5'x'', am I too short?" Yes you fuck you're short, if your height starts with 5, it reeks the high potential of receiving an invitation to join the legion of inceldom.

No not because you're physically short, because the fact you care so much about height exudes fragility and insecurity, jesus even if I am a man I can tell if a dude is insecure about his height and has a negative relationship with his body, for fuck sake why the hell should a woman be comfortable being around you, when you don't even want to be you? 

Remove soy from our diet dickheads, have more redmeat and increase your testosterone.

You're 5'7, fine, you're 5'11, fine, you're 6'3, fine.

Like seriously what the fuck if you're short then your candidate pool will be smaller that's the fucking reality, stop wasting energy on try to figure out a grand scheme to convince the opposite sex to not discriminate you for your height. What???

Here's the scorecard, look at this shit and stop complaining, unbelievable bitch energy. 

• 6'+: Alright this is good, just like having a 4.0 GPA when applying to banks. You have enough grey matter to perform highly complex cerebral tasks like switching tabs on excel model by shortcut. Summa cum laude and working as 1st year analyst at Evercore RX, potential of top bucket monkey, this is perfect, this is how the world should be. If your face / health department is good, consider make a trip to the nearest sperm bank, on behalf of human race, I appreciate your good deeds.

• 5'10-11: This is like 3.8-3.9 GPA, these fuckers always overthink about that A- on their transcript that drags their whole GPA down by 0.1 point. Listen here you fucker, how about just acting like you're 6'? Nobody really cares except you. Also chicks are not very good measuring, so get over it, do not complain and start getting results. If your height is in this bracket and you somehow still manage to open your mouth to whine, then you're a pathetic sack of shit. 

• 5'9: This screams 3.5 GPA to me, half A half B mediocre shit, however still pass computer screening when you apply online. This might pass chicks' threshold, just add 2 inches into your real height and wear lift on your first date, she wouldn't notice. The whole point is to fuck her, equivalent of squeezing your way into the investment bank, once you achieve it, 3.5 or 4.0, doesn't fucking matter. Once you get the chick to sleep with you, she's emotionally invested, and you better take a lead of the relationship like man. On first date (the interview), just make sure you nail the technicals (you know how to make love), nail the fit questions (good personality, make her laugh), then it should be smooth sailing. 

• Sub 5'7: Ok this is like having less than 3.0 GPA. No you're not gonna getting into Goldman Sachs what the fuck? Best you can do is ramping up your social capital, do aggressive networking and you might sneak your way into a regional boutique working on LMM pitch, now you can add "Investment Banking Analyst at Bucket shop" into your Linkedin, make a post, see the likes and go jerk off. And that's good, that's totally fine. Now translating to dating landscape, you're not gonna score chicks with 500k+ followers on instagram, unless you're coming from a position of power like that short guy ex-KGB who's running Russia. Or Tom Cruise. Make compromise, aiming for less competitive holes, then you might be able to put your dick into one. A well educated, compliant, 6.5/10 in looks, should be good enough for you. Or you can fuck off to South East Asia to get a wife (and please not come back!). 

Last but not least, let me breathe a bit to lower my blood pressure, ok, here's the last words for you: Fuck you. Do not attempt to make my blood boil once again with shitty height posts, look at the scorecard above, and act accordingly. Your body is the reservoir of your soul, learn to have a positive relationship with it, a rusty reservoir will contaminate whatever it contains. You can weaponize your body by hitting the gym and do MMA, make yourself an apex predator with the capability of exerting lethal force, or at least make you Sonic to have the stamina and speed to dash away from danger. Swear to god if I could, I would send every single one of you height complainers to Afghanistan.

There's a few points of redpill philosophy I agree with (e.g. men shouldn't be too needy when in relationship and men shouldn't chase low interest leads) the rest is kinda useless and even counterproductive. Makes men resentful toward women.

5'10-11 you can get away with putting 6' on your dating app profile so there's that.

"6'+" is too much of a blanket grouping, I'd say you're best off at around 6'3-4, beyond that there are diminishing returns unless you're a professional or D1 basketball player.

Nah, 1-2 inches is a very noticeable difference side by side. Too many people lie about their heights and people like me who are 5'10'' are dubbed as short even though I can count the number of times a girl was near my height lmao.

Side by side, sure. But a 5'4 girl can't tell the difference. I'm exactly 6' and used to put 6'1 or 6'2 on my dating profiles when I was single, nobody ever called me out on it including a girl who was 5'11 herself.

6'3+ is equivalent to 4.3 GPA with school grading on this scale like Cornell, to diffrentiate straight A to straight A+. Top notch. Not much too say. 

5'7-5'9, this is like sub 3.5 but still more than 3.3, these guys need to network to circumvent computer cutoff. Guys in this bracket need to be smart in context (avoiding context in which there are many other taller dudes). In other words, candidates (both IBD and dating) in this category need to be smart and sneak through the backdoors, else they will be incoming IBD/women rejects. 

Aug 30, 2021 - 10:04pm

I'm not in the camp that you're complaining about, but what kind of loser would go out of there way to change their profile name and complain about this?

If someone is on the shorter side of the average, there is nothing they can do about it. I imagine that would be extremely frustrating, given women's recent undying demand for men of a certain height. A phenomenon which is further exacerbated by dating apps where women often disclose "must be 6'0 or over" in their profile, etc.. It is a very legitimate concern and complaint for a lot of guys in the modern dating world.

Calm down. Go for a run or whatever lunatics like you like to do to decompress, frankly I don't want to know. Also, bringing Afghanistan into your point is a slap to the face of anyone who actually served (I did not). You're here complaining about other people complaining about their height, while also interjecting Afghanistan? Do you know how stupid you sound?

Aug 30, 2021 - 10:53pm

Do you get the gist of the whole thread is to tell guys to refocus on what's within their control, master their own bodies and have a better relationship with self like I implicitly pointed out, or your head is too thick for this? What solution do you offer huh? Go convince women to stop using dating apps and stop putting height requirement, then tell me how you go. I will see what value your words bring vs mine.

Aug 31, 2021 - 1:15am

I know it's different for me being a female at 5'1" but every time another guy points out how short I am, I just say how I'm not short just everyone else is taller or sarcastic back. I never understand why it's the males that go out of their way in a convo to point out I'm very short lol

This is what I do as well. I'm a 5 8 guy so I get made fun of for being on the shorter side. The key is just to take it in your stride and own it. It is what it is, love it. Appear hyper-obsessed over it and you've already lost.

Aug 31, 2021 - 10:26am

First off, great post - I agree with the content and as someone who's vertically challenged, I also agree it makes no sense to give it any thought.

With that said... how come you didn't include 5'0-5'6?

Aug 31, 2021 - 10:39am

I am a 6'2 male. Trust me when I say that height doesn't matter shit especially if you are fucked on the inside. If you have a solid relationship with yourself, regardless of your height or looks, you will score beautiful women. 

Aug 31, 2021 - 11:19am

I disagree with this. I agree with the spirit of OP's post that height isn't everything and there's no point in constantly worrying about it because worrying won't change it and shorter guys, like me, just have accept that we'll have less options and focus on being valuable in other ways. That being said, saying that "height doesn't matter" is incredibly naive, especially if you're 6'2 and don't have to deal with it the fact that a lot of guys will literally get filtered out of consideration on dating apps, for example, for not reaching that arbitrary 6' mark. That's not even counting all the times IRL where a girl won't consider a guy because she's the same height as him in heels or something like that.

Also, and I'm not saying this is the case majority of the time, being short is sometimes a catch-22 because if you DO manage to be successful in other ways as a guy, certain people will just claim you have a Napoleon Complex and write you off anyway. Height isn't everything for sure, but it's complete cope to say that it doesn't make a difference at all either.

Yeah agree belligerent manletism is kinda real, compensating for stature. A short man's simmering anger is a real thing mate.

You can be sub-6ft and work on all other aspects while remaining humble, likeable. But your dating prospect would mostly likely be capped at 8 Id say. Sexual mating is a competition anyway, if you're not tall then it's very unlikely you can score a 9 or 10.

I'm over 6' and didn't really have my first girlfriend until freshman year in college (granted she made the first move on me, cheated on me openly at a house party few months after because I was 'boring').

When I was single and bar-hopping with buddies near the end of college before I met my wife, my 5'10" friend had way more luck talking to girls/getting numbers than me. Very charismatic guy who had no trouble getting into relationships if he wanted to (at the time he was but he always kept his options open).

Aug 31, 2021 - 3:47pm

Among my greatest achievements was growing two inches in college to cross the 6'0 threshold by a 1/4 inch. I think my frat new i had it in me even though I was 5'10 freshman year and that's why I was able to go top tier.

5'8" and have dated regularly since as soon as I wanted to. There are plenty of women out there, chill out guys. Girls are generally pretty short especially from certain regions. Definitely agree with the sentiment of this post, focus on improving what you have control over. We are all working solid jobs or are trying to, we're all going to be pretty well educated, and we're going to live in high population cities. If you can't make it happen, it's probably your approach or personality. Women have tons of choices, make sure you would be a good one.
