On the swipe apps, women demand 6'0" flat footed. While 5'11.5" is good, that's still sub 6'0". I'd rather be 5'11.5" than 5'9" or even 5'10". I am 5'10" and I feel that my height has been looked down upon in interactions.I am about 5.11.5" flat footed, about 6'1" with shoes on. Here in NJ, I feel taller than 80% of men. I guess full head of hair doesn't mean too much, since women find bald men more masculine and sexy (as long as you shave it off and are not overweight).
I agree, I am old to a 18-27 year old woman and I don't expect to land one. However, I think I still have a crack at the 29-35 year old range.
If you're Top Tier or high second tier at 44, you might have a chance at 29-35. If swipe apps are the method used, it's difficult to get a 5+ year younger woman in one's 30s/40s. You'd be better served in real life finding 29-35 year olds.
