Is "6 feet" really enough in this day and age?

One of the most common sayings you will hear from RP guys is that a man has to be "a triple six" which means he has to earn 6 figures, have a 6 pack, and of course, be 6 feet tall. Lately, however, I've wondered if we're at the point where it is no longer the minimum. See, we know for a fact that social media has a tremendous amount of influence on our society. This has led to me investigate the content that is posted on various platforms and what I've observed is curious to say the least. It seems a lot of the girls today are aiming for guys that are 6'3" or above because they want their men to be "a head taller than them" which means a height difference of at least 8 inches. If you live in a country where the average height of a woman is around 5'7" (e.g. Iceland, Montenegro, the Netherlands), you'll notice the "gold standard" for a man is actually 6'3" (or 190 cm in metric) and not 6' (183 cm). I guess this has to be a consequence of the women there simply being taller and "190" sounding like a nice round number. What do you think? Do you believe standards are changing and why?

Girls with stern height requirements are almost always for the streets. We could not be more lucky as men that this generation of women has no qualms about posting “for sex only” on their foreheads proudly.

There are millions(billions?) of relationships with men under 6’. It’s seriously not that big of an issue.

is that pic you? pls tell me your height, weight, diet and gym routine

[–]h1shman 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yeah. I’m 5’11.5 exactly but obviously round up lmao. I’m usually 185 but have been cutting and am down to 172 and have maybe 5 more lbs to drop.

My diet is probably 90/10 with 90 being home cooked and clean. Salmon, turkey, Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, oats, berries make up pretty much my entire diet. My 10% is usually sweets like ice cream.

My routine changes all the time. Good to keep the body guessing but I focus on keeping lifts in the 9-12 range and legs in 10-16 range for hypertrophy and limiting injuries. I try to get in 3 30 minute cardio sessions a week but slack there often with usually 1-2

[–]Liberated_Asexual 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

And do what?

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

Observe that it's not just 6 ft guys dating, most couples have about 10 cm difference

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

We'ra talking about standards here tho

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

It seems like 6 feet tall is a pretty standard height preference for women. That kind of sets the floor in regards to height preference on dating apps.

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

But is that still the case? I see plenty of women asking for taller guys.

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

Me and all of my friends who are very successful with women meet none of those requirements. And yet we get as much sex with beautiful women as we can handle.

What we do have on our side is fascinating but challenging personalities. Arseholes, but also decent, good people. We talk to women in a way that they find attractive. You just pick up on what works and eventually it flows naturally.

I don't see how, if we met those three requirements, we could have more success.

Only if six feet is the average for men wherever you are

[–]Play_MutedDark Red Pill 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

it is average height for guys in my age group in where I live so its not anything special and its bare minimum for lots of girls.

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

Yeah, that's why I think the standards are changing

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

Where do you live?

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

TO BE FAIR i see in real life mostly regular height people in relationships (myself being on the shorter side of my generation.) but it's not always the case for men and height does play a huge role in having doors open for you regardless of what some bloopers might say, ive seen a guy get turned down explicitly for being short and listened to my own mom vocally diss a man for daring to be shorter than the woman he was with.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (10 children) | Copy Link

The notion that 6 feet is anything more than the baseline is outrages. The average white man in the US is 5’10.5, a standard deviation of 1.5 inches from the average doesn’t make you tall. If that was the case 5’9 would be short. It’s a coping mechanism men use to make themselves seem more desirable. It’s the same with dick size as well. 6 inches is by no means “large”. It’s simply the baseline.

[–]SaltyGeekyLifter 0 points1 point  (9 children) | Copy Link

Curious. Do you know what the percentage is of men who are 6’0 and over?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (8 children) | Copy Link

In my country it’s 42%

[–]SaltyGeekyLifter 0 points1 point  (7 children) | Copy Link

Riiiiight.

And would that country be the Netherlands, perchance?

Because I’m most of the world the figure is 15%

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (6 children) | Copy Link

Denmark. Average height is 181 cm

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

In IQ tests, women consistently score worse than guys in the spacial category. If she's into you, it adds 6 inches to your height.

height is the excuse, not the reason.

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