So I guess they now know what they need to do....get out and make that cheddar!

The shorter you are the more you need to earn to make up the difference.

The study is from 2006 and yes, it is still relevant when it comes to height. I mean I really feel for short dudes man, I really really do. Now I have seen short guys have success with dating and with women but these were the very few chill short guys. Most short guys I know are overcompensating in a big way, combative, ready to argue, egotistical, and seen as a joke by most people.

However, since the study did mention race, I'll say that things have changed in a massive way since 2006 for Asian and Indian dudes. It used to be unheard of to see them with hot girls of other races before 2014 or so. Ever since then, I see so many hot white girls, latin girls, black girls, and even Middle Eastern girls with men of both backgrounds. A well put-together Indian and Asian dude has it just as easy as guys of other races, at times even easier due to the exotic effect.

Something definitely changed for ethnic guys as a whole around 2015. I am seeing so many more Latinos with white and black girls now.

That's like fat girls need to put 10x the amount of flirting to get the attention of a man.

Anyway whatever level of hypergamy we had mid 00s, it probably 10xed now.
 

Warning!

Do not subscribe to The SoSuave Newsletter unless you are already a chick magnet!

The information in each issue of The SoSuave Newsletter is too powerful for most guys to handle. If you are an ordinary guy, it is not for you. It is meant for the elite few. Not the unwashed masses.

If you know you can handle it...

If you already have girls calling you at all hours of the day and night, showing up at your door, throwing themselves at you everywhere you go...

Then sign up below.

But if you're just an average Joe, an ordinary guy, no one special – then skip this. It is not for you.

Not always...there are a LOT more guys than you would think that actually prefer fat women. A lot of them are actually skinny guys. It's gross.

You're right, now that I think about it I know some average looking guys that are turned on from far asses...which is one of the top physical reasons for me to avoid a girl.

Women however all agree into disliking short guys.

So it’s more like $250K now.

I used the inflation calculator to calculate what $175,000 in July 2006 is worth in terms of purchasing power as of July 2022. $254,782.80 is the number. Let's say that a 5'6" man needs to make $255,000 more than a 6'0" man.


In Q2 2021, the median income earner in the US made $990 per week, or $51,480. Since taller people tend to make more money, I'll move that median number for our 6'0" guy to $52,000 a year.

In theory, a 6'0" guy making $52,000 a year is as attactive as a 5'6" guy making $307,000 a year. To make $307,000 a year, you need to be in the 97-98th percentile of income earners? How many 5'6" men are in that percentile and make $307,000/year? That's not many.

This theory assumes all other things are equal, which they are never are. However, short men are at a disadvantage and you will need a substantially higher income and/or net worth to offset the shortness.

This is only true for 9/10 or 10/10 women, but probably true nonetheless.

I can vouch that the most attractive women truly do require men to make a lot of money for them to even register on their sexual radar. Not even talking about gold diggers; it's a simple prereq since almost all high SMV women already make a lot of money (attractiveness in a women comes with great privilege and social influence).

Case study:

I have a close friend who is a 5'6-5'7' Asian man of average looks, but has net worth in the millions. He can get 8s and even 9s regularly seemingly with no effort.

I on the other hand, with some effort, can get 7s and the occasional 8, 8.5 once in a blue moon (maybe a 9), despite having almost no money, no car (just a motorcycle), almost no status or material possessions. You can probably guess why.

Men need to stop pretending that money and looks don't attract women.

Being short, without some compensating attribute, must be life on Hard Mode.
Then dudes get criticized when they lower their standards... Yeah as if these ultra successful DonJuans could be as successful if they were in the same situation.

Agree completely. But needs to be hair adjusted.

X - axis (input - height)

Y- axis (input- norwood number)

Z-axis (output - required income delta to be "equivalent to" a 6-foot, full hair/NW0 guy)

(Not sure what this surface would look like. Too tired right now.)

It's OVER for AnalyticGeometryCels too. The only solutions are imaginary ...

As successful, probably not. Completely unsuccessful? That's a choice.
