Re: Men dating women who are physically stronger than them

2003 trolling like a champion.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Unless it's to an extreme limit then I couldn't really care less at all. If I find her attractive and love her personality and she loves mine then that's all that should matter.

Absolutely not. If she is lifting 200+ I'm not interested.

I've seen it's actually more women who are into this sort of thing.

They see a man who is not taller, or at the bare minimum equal to her height in heels, most of the time they won't consider him to be a serious partner [I'm being 100% serious here, it's not all women but most, and no I don't have experience in this department because I'm still taller than 99% of women in their heels].

Seems legit.

Yup, there are exceptions, but in general a short guy isn't going to be a star of the party

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

This is correct. One of my ex's was actually pretty obsessed with it.

That's more or less my point, put more bluntly

I wouldn't be so harsh, however. It's not just a matter of personal issues, it's a social norm that tells men they should be stronger than their women, "protect" them and so on. So it does take a lot of self-confidence to just be OK with the idea that maybe you're physically weaker than your woman.
It's more or less like women who are constantly shown extreme thinness as an ideal. You may be aware that when you have a perfectly normal and healthy body, you should not let anyone tell you (or imply) that you should go on a diet, but it's still very difficult to stop caring altogether.

(Oh and also, I'm aware 2003 was most probably trolling, but to claim that this is not an issue is not realistic, it is an issue for many people, so I think it's still worth discussing, anyway )

Sophitia, would you consider a man shorter than yourself as a partner? Exploring GOAT = Fed's argument here.

And the funny thing? Most men don't call women out on it and they will try their best to look taller [if they're short] like doing specific hairstyles or wearing shoe lifts to look taller, utterly pathetic in my opinion. Men play into that insecurity created by women and aren't happy with their bodies.

Yet damn, if a man says he likes a woman's body to have such and such features and the whole world erupts at how that man is shallow and women refuse to play into that same insecurity.

The funny thing is that I remember how obsessed with it she was.
