Thanks to the NY Post for this gem of an article. Women in New York City don’t seem to like short guys.
The likelihood that a man under 5-foot-9 is contacted by a Manhattan or Bronx woman online is a scant 1.2 percent, with Brooklyn coming in with a paltry 2.4 percent response rate, according to a study conducted by the dating site AYI.com, which analyzed 50,000 interactions over two months.
Staten Island short stacks had just a 4.1 chance of being chatted up online, and Queens mini-men rounded out the boroughs with 5.4 percent.
“People in bigger cities have more options and tend to be pickier,” explained Josh Fischer, who led the study.
Brooklynite Nick Rizzo knows the sting of big-otry all too well.
“It’s just a fact of life that most women taller than me aren’t willing to date me,” confessed the 5-foot-7 28-year-old, who said he has found that women are often “uncomfortable” when their date doesn’t measure up.
You’re probably wondering why you’re reading this article on a blog for gay guys. First off, I found it funny that this study came out now… right before Christmas. Secondly, I don’t think I am biased against guys that are shorter than me. I’m 6 foot and happen to like a smaller guy that I can throw around.
What’s your opinion? Hit me up on Twitter. If you’re a tall guy will you ignore a short guy?
