That said, the height thing is, most assuredly, a thing. What makes it so noteworthy is that it seems to be such a resolutely accepted thing. Take any other physical characteristic -- weight, hair color, size of... certain body parts -- and casually listing it as a non-negotiable dating requirement would strike the average person as at least kind of shallow and crass, if not offensively discriminatory.
And yet, hearing or seeing a woman say, "I'd absolutely never date a guy who's shorter than me" barely even draws a reaction.
"It's not the specific height requirement that bothers me," says Chris, 35, who happens to be 6'3". "It’s the overall pretentious nature of women on Tinder! I would never list a minimum bra size or say size 2 or less. Women act like they are playing Weird Science, attempting to create a million Ryan Goslings. Moral of Weird Science is that even if you create (or in our case, search on Tinder for) your perfect match, you won’t be satisfied. Stop the nonsense and be open to all kinds of men. Just ask Gary and Wyatt! It turned out great for them."
