Height isn't this dating misfit's only challenge

By Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: While I could write a novel on how I feel, I will keep this short and sweet.

I am a 39-year-old man, and a dietitian. Health is very important to me.

My problem is that women in my dating range have been married and had multiple kids and have let their bodies go to waste.

Before you say "go younger," let me say that the "new age" or "modern woman" does nothing for me.

I have zero attraction to tattoos, drugs, and women who want to hit the clubs.

So now I have zero options, and the loss of hope has taken a major toll on my health.

I am VERY attractive and one of the silliest and most thoughtful guys you could ever meet, but at 5 feet 6 inches tall I am thinking my height is causing me to come up short in their eyes (on first impressions). Pun intended.

Dear Wrong: Dude, I don't think height is really your problem.

But it might be.
