I get your point Dilbert. At least I have some forward momentum though.

He'd have better luck if he stopped blaming other people, quit the nice guy grousing, and just kept looking. How hard is it to pass over a profile listing with a height requirement? It doesn't seem likely that he doesn't have preferences of his own, either. I feel like a lot of these guys were stifled as children.
I offered to teach him to use online dating. There is an endless parade of girls on there. He could find something/anything to build up confidence and experience. But he just doesn't. Maybe fear of rejection. I told him he would do well.

There are a lot of guys on Reddit who complain about online dating not being fair to men. It is annoying hearing people not take responsibility for themselves IRT online dating, work, etc.

It seems obvious from some very basic head math that the odds of randomly stumbling into a relationship without trying are lower than if you actually put some goal-oriented legwork into it.

More bluntly: does he even want to be in a relationship, or does he just like complaining about other people, or complaining in general?

I think the problem is short men have unrealistic expectations about the sort of women who find short men attractive.

It must suck to be short, but I guess you fall over less thanks to the lower centre of gravity.

Being tall you tend to end up stooped as everything is made for people of average height. How is this fair?

I mean, create other qualities for yourself and go from there. The short thing could be a mixed blessing. On one hand, slightly fewer matches. On the other, do you really want to hook up with a person you think has shallow preferences?

Being a short misogynist? Good luck, pal.

I feel like you can be short and still have preferences, does that make you a misogynist just because the people he has a preference for don't have a preference for him and it frustrates him? I think that just makes him stuck between a rock and a hard place.

At the point where someone's practically given up on women because "they're all the same and they all hate you because you're short," I think that's kind of creeping into incel territory. "I can have types, but you can't," unattractive energy regardless of gender.

Like, cultivate a better personality (one that isn't "I'm a nice guy, so you owe me sex").

Tomorrow I will be chairing a meeting in which the person who has taken it upon himself to be my nemesis will be grizzling and niggling and trying to make me look stupid.

What he doesn't know is I know I'm stupid and I couldn't care less.

I couldn't really care less about the job either, they need me more than I need them and I'm only going for the coffee and to get out of the house.

For some reason I've been given an out of cycle pay rise, after tax its still enough for a week in a nice hotel, with company.

They must be desperate and understand the difficulty of replacing me, take no shit attitude notwithstanding.

This cuts both ways, on the one hand my team has to deal with me on a day to day basis, on the other hand my team is able to push back a lot harder when other teams try to give them shit since they've seen my example of taking no shit and pushing back.

I know they've been trying to recruit one or two more people for the team for about six months and come up with a total blank - which is to say a lot of Indians.

This is what happens when you offshore all your manufacturing - 20 years later you have no manufacturing engineers.
Amazing, literally no-one could have predicted this.

Sometimes you do need a manufacturing engineer to sign those things off, but that should be a facilities engineer.

More dumbness from work.

One of the admins sends this out daily, a make-work waste of everyone's time.
Of course you have to send her an email with your plans, generating reports from outlook or the leave system is too obvious.

dd/mm/yyyy or yyyy/mm/dd are both fine. mm/dd, dd/mm get ambiguous in the low numbers and mm/dd/yyyy is a bad habit people shouldn't've been taught.

What a chore. How often are they even reviewed? If only there were things called apps that could be programmed to allow people the responsibility of entering that data on their own in like 2 seconds each (not that they will, I suppose).

I have three different career related obligations tomorrow that all overlap in time. I can't be in three places at once unfortunately. Same thing happened yesterday. Two different sets of obligations that overlapped.

I have to make hard choices about which ones to go with. Fallout New Jersey.

"What was the date on that document you sent earlier this year?"
"One-slash-three."
Nobody speaks it like that. January 3, or 1st of March. If you're going to write it down, make sure there's no mistaking it so that people can read it, you know? It's beyond age. Interns in their 20s gripe about that stuff.
