I once read on the Internet how a guy that was 5'9 in height would often be met with plain hostility from blonde women that went for 6'3 black guys :)

I attract Asians, and in my knowledge they're never blondes.

A: Because, hasty generalization fallacy. Also, confirmation/selection bias.

Dated a blonde for about 3 months. Great sex. Lousy relationship skills. Stick to brunettes. They're intelligent and much more nurturing.

You left out False Attribution and Incomplete Comparison.

Not to mention Lack of Empirical Data.

Take notice at your observation, then look inward as to why you have focused on these particular traits to focus on. It might speak more about your jealousies/insecurities and help you navigate ways to overcome it rather than placing blame on particular people groups.

There's your first mistake. You read something on the internet and accepted it as being true. :wink:

Actually according to good old stereotypical wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_attractiveness

"Testosterone has been shown to darken skin color in laboratory experiments.[103] In his foreword to Peter Frost's 2005 Fair Women, Dark Men, University of Washington sociologist Pierre L. van den Berghe writes: "Although virtually all cultures express a marked preference for fair female skin, even those with little or no exposure to European imperialism, and even those whose members are heavily pigmented, many are indifferent to male pigmentation or even prefer men to be darker."[104] Despite this, the aesthetics of skin tone varies from culture to culture. Manual laborers who spent extended periods of time outside developed a darker skin tone due to exposure to the sun. As a consequence, an association between dark skin and the lower classes developed. Light skin became an aesthetic ideal because it symbolized wealth. "Over time society attached various meanings to these colored differences. Including assumptions about a person's race, socioeconomic class, intelligence, and physical attractiveness."[105]"

and on the height thing:
"Females' sexual attraction towards males may be determined by the height of the man.[91] Height in men is associated with status or wealth in many cultures (in particular those where malnutrition is common),[92] which is beneficial to women romantically involved with them. One study conducted of women's personal ads support the existence of this preference; the study found that in ads requesting height in a mate, 80% requested a height of 6.00 feet (1.83 m) or taller.[92] The online dating Website eHarmony only matches women with taller men because of complaints from women matched with shorter men.[93]"

OP is neither stereotyping or being jealous, most women biologically prefer tall and dark skinned men and that's just the way it is and there's nothing wrong with it in my opinion.

Wow sounds like you could write a whole 2 page short story with dating advice, based on your experience with a blonde...
Ooh and in a sequel, maybe you could consider the effects of hair coloring on said characteristics :lol:

Overly sarcastic, but come on. Judging a woman by hair color is like judging a guy by his wallet/height/baldness. Isn't that a thing that people complain about a whole lot on here? Being judged on one's appearance? 8O

In all seriousness, I thought people were most attracted to others with similar features (in appearance).
E.g. http://uk.businessinsider.com/attractio ... ?r=US&IR=T

You mentioned Arab-looking guys (I guess you mean Semitic features if not mistaken, because I am not that dark), I am telling you that in my case this isn't true at all, I don't really attract blondes.

Ethnically wise and based on experience, I am waaaay more likely to attract Asians, African and dark Latinas than blonde Europeans, it's the girls of Asian and Latina ethnicities who ever expressed to me their fascination toward my Caucasian/middle-eastern features, not the blondes.

But Uprising, I have noticed this preference for darker guys among women (not only among blondes), I also heard a lot how they have blonde hair on men; this stereotype is real, it is not totally baseless.

Well if you read it once on the internet, than it must be true...
