I feel like we could staple a book of scientific proof of these types of facts and statistics, page by page, onto everyone's forehead, and they would still somehow say that we aren't finding girlfriends because we are not trying hard enough.

I suspect a large percentage of men on reddit who mock or show contempt for incels are not being completely honest about their ability to pull women as well.

I would consider myself above-average in looks (aside from being 5'6"). I even scored 6.7 on Photofeeler, which means I rate higher than 67% of men. I lift. I do cardio. I eat clean. Got a fat cock too (though this means fuck all with online dating because you'll get banned for posting a dick pic or sending women dick pics on the app). Now imagine the average redditor male. Let's say 5'9". Skinny fat physique or fat. Average dick. Soyboy. Probably doesn't lift weights, probably doesn't do cardio. Sedentary lifestyle. Their diet is high in carbs, probably high in fat and low in protein. They eat lots of Hot Pockets, pizza, microwavable processed food. Probably eat lots of junk food. Many of them probably work for a FANGMA or other big tech company (like reddit!). Even though I have a 3 inch height disadvantage (not sure about reach since I think my wingspan is kinda long for my height), I would probably knock out the average redditor in a fight. Chances are I have more functional strength than the average sedentary redditor.

What does a man like this have to offer to a woman other than his wallet? Women can earn their own money now in 2022. And you need to make lots of bank in 2022 to support two adults (especially a family) on one income with inflation being what it is now. I know that its cheaper for a foid to share a 1 bedroom apartment with a SO than to live with room mates. But come on. You really think that the slight financial advantage of living with a SO instead of rooming with her girlfriends is going to get her to say yes to a man who doesn't make her pussy wet?

If I was a foid, I would probably lower my standards after getting repeatedly pumped n dumped by Chad and Tyrone. But I would never date an inceltear or incelexit liberal double masked triple vaxxed soyboy. And in real life, a lot of single foids on these dating apps refuse to ever consider lowering their standards. I see the same women on POF in my local area active for years! lmfao. Either they are just there for the attention or they are holding out for commitment from Chad.

So according to these stats, as a 5'6" man I am filtered out by 85+% of women on Bumble. No wonder I get fuck all worth of matches on Bumble despite paying $199.99 CAD + 13% tax for a lifetime premium membership. I boost once a week and send 5 super swipes a week and I get fuck all worth of matches. I even tried buying a boost pack so that I can stack my boosts (2 boosts = 150 minutes boost while 1 boost is only 30 minutes boost). And I still get fuck all. The likes I do get are mostly landwhales and ugly women. Why should I settle for landwhales when I take good care of myself?

My 7-day average on my digital scale is 141.9 lbs @ 17% body fat, 40.9% muscle mass. I may not have the six-pack abs yet (I'm desperately trying to get there!) but 17% bf is considered good fitness level for a man in his 30s. I have been killing myself with my diet, cardio and at the gym trying to improve my physique. I was 168.2 lbs @ 29% bf, 34.7% muscle back in early February. It's demoralizing when I have made a ton of self-improvement to my fitness. And it feels like in the end it doesn't really matter because I'm a 5'6" manlet. At the very least I guess I won't get Type II diabetes or get fucked up by COVID now that I'm healthy. lol.

It pisses me off that I can't eat potato chips, cheese puffs, cheesecake, cookies, cakes, etc. anymore nor can I eat as much real food as I used to. The last time I felt full was probably Mid-May. Cutting while 5'6" to try to get abs is such a pain in the ass. While foids can just stuff their face and get Chad/Tyrone dick delivery just like they were ordering a 16" Domino's pizza. Being a heterosexual man is a scam in 2022.

Also: About two-thirds of women on Bumble filter out men under 6'. Can you believe that shit? Men who are 6' are a small minority of even the US population. Let alone the world population!

don't say that four letter word in your 4th paragraph

[–]iamatwork24 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I mean I’ve read your replies in this thread and your outlook towards dating and women is gross. Going to say that’s the main reason why you have no luck. But sure, keep blaming your height.

[–]no_bling_just_dingWhitePill (self aware MSTOW) 5 points6 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

note that this sample selects for women who use height filters to begin with

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

That is a good point but it still says a lot and im sure more women than not set a height filter.

[–]no_bling_just_dingWhitePill (self aware MSTOW) 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

it was a paid feature since december 2021 probably because it was so overused that men were threatening the company's bottom line

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

lol true, shits garbage. The whole game is garbage. Even as a fairly successful dude. Just putting in a bunch of energy for used pooter that prefers to share the same 20 dudes in town. Really gross if you think about it.

[–]no_bling_just_dingWhitePill (self aware MSTOW) 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

sounds like a waste of time

[–]hdksndiisn 2 points3 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

This blows my mind, if I’m reading it correctly 6’6” is the height women are looking for?


[–]alienamongnormiesBlackPill[S] 2 points3 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

What percentile of men does 6'6" fall under? It's crazy. Very very few men are that height. That's like the average height of a NBA small forward in 2022. Michael Jordan in his prime might not even be 6'6" if he took off his sneakers

[–]hdksndiisn 2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Right. I’m 6’0”, it’s insane that 6 and below is basically undesirable. Isn’t the average like 5’9”…? I think women must not know how to gauge height. Because they are 5’4” they may think 6’0” = 6’6”…my only way to make sense of it

[–]alienamongnormiesBlackPill[S] 4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

In the United States of America, the average height for a man is 5'9" and the average height for a woman is 5'3.5". So the gender dimorphism is less than 8.7%.

In my country of Canada, where we use the metric system, the average height for a man is 175.1 cm (5'8.9") and 162.3 cm (5'3.9") for women. So the gender dimorphism here is less than 7.9%!

So as a man who is 167cm tall (5'5.75"), which my doctor measured me at like 6pm evening height, my gender dimorphism match would be 154.8cm (5'0.9"). I had an ex who was probably around that height. Another ex who was 4'10". I did have an ex who was 5'4". Average height for a woman. I don't mind dating a woman who is 5'1" or shorter. But a lot of small petite women insist on a man who is 6'+ tall. So I have no choice but to expand my net beyond 5'1".

So yeah it's super unrealistic for 5'3.5" American women to expect a 6' tall man. Especially a 6'6" NBA small forward.


[–]hdksndiisn 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Damn. That’s crazy. I just don’t believe this is what women are searching for. This implies they are delusional.

Someone else commented what if they could search by dick size? Man what would happen.

[–]MacaqueOfTheNorth 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I'm Canadian and I've never heard anyone give their height in metric.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

About .15% of men are 6'6"+...

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Whats crazy is not even 15% of men in the USA are over six feet tall. It makes it hard for me to take women seriously. Imagine if I just went through life like "I need a skinny-fit, loyal virgin who makes 200k a year and lets me sit at home and game all day." It would sound idiotic, yet thats how they behave while simultaneous preaching for equality. How can anyone even give af anymore? Ive had several lays, and some GFs I slept with what? A hundred times? Its never enough. Much happier and tranquil life doing what I want and not wasting all my time and energy fixating on used pussy that doesnt even prefer me.

[–]warramite 2 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Is this why i get nowhere? Seems like maybe 3% of women are looking for a man my height

[–]alienamongnormiesBlackPill[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

How tall are you?

[–]warramite 2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy Link


[–]alienamongnormiesBlackPill[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy Link


R.I.P unless you are at an age where you are still growing.

The average height for an American woman is 5'3.5". Dating as a 5'2" man is gonna be tough.

Have you ever considered SEAmaxxing? You can get a tourist visa for up to 6 months in the Philippines and I think Thailand. South-East Asians tend to be shorter. So you'll have less stiff competition in South-East Asia. And the women tend to be shorter than white women.

[–]warramite 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Impossible cause im not white

[–]SaltyGeekyLifter 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

The lesson here, gentlemen, is this:


Your efforts should be in boosting your own SMV and then going old-school to meet chicks.

Any effort or money you put in to apps is wasted. The ladies will seek to maximise the compliments you send them - purely for the dopamine hit. But unless you are an aggregate 9+ (including height) you have no hope.

[–]HodgekinWhitePill 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link


This is why cold approach has more success than dating apps.

The sample size is women who use filter + who use dating apps. Not every women uses dating apps. My guess would be 1/4 of females use dating apps. You have another 3/4 of females which probably fall into more realistic territory.

If you're wondering how I got that guess, I hear there's a 1:2 ratio, female:male on the dating apps. Then I'm guessing 50% of the male population probably uses dating apps. (I never touch a dating app personally).

[–]tornado28 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Is there a credible link for this data? I find it kind of hard to believe. Other sources say that women like men to be about 5 inches taller, whereas this seems to suggest they want a guy who's a foot or more taller than they are.

[–]Drive-By-CuckersWhitePill 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Lmao it’s almost like when the only thing you have to base your choices off is photos then you’ll pick the best people based solely on looks…

[–]no_bling_just_dingWhitePill (self aware MSTOW) 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

is it the only thing though? how do looks really affirm that someone is better or worse?

what about bios, distance and conversations

[–]MacaqueOfTheNorth 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

How can the peak be at 6'6"? Wouldn't that mean some women have their minimum height that high? As a 6'3" man, I've never had a woman say I was too short, but have had some complaints about being too tall. I find these data hard to believe. Are they just noisy?

[–]BumblingBeta 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Damn, has it got to the point where even 6ft does quite a lot worse than taller heights like 6ft4 or 6ft5?

Barely any difference between 5ft10 and 5ft11 which is interesting. Big jump from 5ft11 to 6ft. Big drop off from 5ft10 to 5ft9.


- if you're 5ft7-5ft9 as a man, just put 5ft10

- if you're 5ft10-5ft11, just put 6ft

- if you're 6ft-6ft1, put 6ft2

- if you're 5ft6 or under, you're probably screwed :( Might be able to get away with putting 5ft9 if you're 5ft6. 5ft5 and under, it's best to just be honest at that point. You're short enough that the short height might actually work in your favor and you attract a woman who really loves shorter men.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
