Default 5'8 and good looking or 6'3 and mediocre looks - what would you want for yourself?

Ladies at work are having this discussion now in terms of what they prefer in their men.

With that said, what would you prefer to be?

5'8 and good looking OR 6'3 and mediocre looking?

Which one has the most money, because as Bezo's proves height/looks matters little.

I'm only 5'6" so anything taller than that is an improvement in my opinion.

Now, 5'6 with 12" ain't that bad either, truthfully

If there's nothing else I found out from playing the field/all the apps in my early 30's is that women are terribly shallow about height to the point where I sort of found it bizarre of all things to demand. Fortunately, I'm 6'0'', but probably would have been a little pissed cruising around and seeing statements like "I'm 5'6'' so you have to be taller than me when I'm wearing heels". I'm guessing that you should be around 4 inches taller than anybody you're courting, but it's still a strange requirement.

Height is the #1 factor for women from all the informal polling I've done. It's like bra size is for us.

But I always got laid more than the oafy tall guys so I will take being short and better-looking.

Regardless of what they say, most women just want a guy to make them laugh. If you can make them laugh, that's your ticket in.

Women will only laugh at your jokes if they like you already.

That's actually one way they show you. The others are

talking to you
asking if you ate already or asking what kind of food you like

That's about it

W2 means **** initially with the laws of attraction, it has a huge impact if you're looking for the long haul. But you can't get them back you your place to even show them that you're somewhat well-off if they won't talk to you in the first place. So it's moot.

The caveat to this is if you got hooked up by mutual friends, somebody will feed financial intel. But if you're in the business of picking up complete strangers, then it's not of much help for those critical first 5 minutes.

Also, a nice home isn't the only way to show status. That's why we buy nice clothes, cars, watches, and whatever other **** we decorate ourselves with.

If a woman is really all about the paper, you won't be able to talk to her outside of places where she knows she is meeting men on the level she wants. Whereas a "normal" woman could be chatted up at the grocery store or gas station etc.

But really, the #1 place for people to meet is...work. So that takes care of a lot of the W2 guesswork.

So glad I don't have to deal with dating and meeting women. We both met in college when we had little money and not a whole lot of worries. I honestly could not do the whole dating / trying to impress women thing.
