Britt emailed the show with a question.
Dave, Steve, and Lena,
I am a long time listener of the Dave Ryan morning show and I know sometimes you ask questions for people to answer on the air and I am wondering if you would be willing to share my question?
Is it shallow for a woman to say she is not interested in dating anyone shorter than herself?
Back story: I am a 28 year old single mom to a 9 yr old boy with a great career and fairly active lifestyle. My height is 5'9 so I'm on the taller side you could say. Any who, I have been single for over FIVE years!! I oftentimes wonder if I am too picky and if any of my "requirements" make me too shallow. Additionally, I'm not really a drinker/bar goer and I'm genuinely curious how the hell I am supposed to meet decent men that fit my criteria? I have been on approximately 60-75 tinder/bumble dates over the years. I remember you saying on the radio a couple months ago that it takes the average person around 50 (if I recall).
