Trolls by their very nature are incapable of subtlety. Therefore their postings will inevitably give them away if given time. The worst are the "I say shocking things to pop my boner" trolls, they almost always give themselves away on their first post due to their need for attention.

No, a true troll that wanted to make fun of us or get off on us would try to be more subtle so they could get more info. That's what I would do at least LOL

I don't get it.

If you are saying that height is more of a predictor for BHMs, then that would mean that tall BHMs do better than their thin counterparts.

Sorry, but that doesn't sound very plausible to me.

But, I still maintain that if BHM populations are being 'culled' in such a way that is more sensetive to extraneous variables, then what we are really observing in such a dynamic are those extraneous variables.

You may not appreciate this subjectively, but I'm sure you can appreciate it both logically and scientifically.

And as a self-interested BHM of science, I would be remiss to ignore this, lol.




Yes, where this is in fact the case.




I would say there exists a continuum of opportunities(given that they do not distribute equally), but preferences with high selective value are directional(but bounded by some mean neighbourhood indicated in koinophilia).



This has some elements of both a strawman(since that's not what I said, and far from what I meant) and an appeal to consequence.

Obviously, no one is here to solicit my approval, but then I'm not here to validate anyone's preferences either.

I am simply conveying some valid observations.

I am saying that upward deviations from average are more predictive of a dominant weighting when observing a BHM population.

So, it seems that BHM prospects are more sensetive to height(sorry for the confusion).

It is interesting to consider that height contributes to an optical illusion that detracts from an endomorphic appearance.

Why do you think we have specially shaped columns to compensate for the optical effect?

It then occurs, that any such hypothetical person failing to meet this condition is no troll.

Most trolls I see tend to blitzkrieg, get in as many offensive comments as possible, and then get banned.

I'm 5'2 so for some reason, I like to start around 6'0. The tallest guy I've dated was 6'7 and that was pretty fucking hot. IDK, I have learned that I shouldn't be so rigid on my preference for certain things. Also, my taller friends say it's not fair for me to date the taller guys cuz even someone 5'7 is tall to me. LOL

Have any of you gone through this situation? Thoughts would be appreciated- as I am currently in that situation myself.
It isn't easy to determine if the person you are dating will be pleasantly receptive to your ideas. He may at first feel that your ideas are strange. But in my experience, the woman I was dating thought I was a bit strange (she wasn't FFA thus my preference for being a large size seemed a little wierd to her). It hasn't effected our relation ship.The strange part is that I'm 5'8 and 135. Go figure. My advice is to test the waters in a respectable way....whatever that means.
