He says, “A healthy 160-pound, 5-foot-5 man is going to be a stronger protector than a healthy 160-pound, 5-foot-11 man.It’s been well documented, pound for pound, shorter men have greater endurance, stronger muscles, faster reaction times, faster body movement and are less likely to break bones.” Plus, he adds, “Shorter men live longer.no secret that any man who stipulated he was seeking a size 2, minimum 34D on his profile would end up with a steady diet of swipes left, or possibly even hate mail.So how come women do something quite similar with regularity, and no one seems to bat an eye?But after years of this, I’m pretty sure I’ll always feel the same way about goat cheese. Personal preferences exist, and to deny that is willful ignorance.My aversion to goat cheese doesn’t make me a bad person — neither does my attraction to tall men.
