If you’re a regular reader, you probably knew that I was on the CBS Early Show in July. We wrote two new profile essays that were unique, funny and confident.Appearing with me was one of my all-time favorite clients, Tom Pandolfo. We renamed him “Look Ma No Hair.” And we watched as his in-box filled up with interested women.Well at this point, the guy realizes that you really like him, he has you, and he’s no longer worried that he could lose you to another guy.At this point, things are probably starting to get comfortable- you make plans regularly, you’re in contact more frequently, and a relationship seems just around the corner.If you start getting on his case (“Why didn’t you call? ”, etc.) he will feel trapped and suffocated and start pulling away. In fact, I'd been going about being single all wrong.Now while you might start getting really excited by this prospect, this particular guy has probably gotten freaked out.
Yet his height defines him, since it has prevented otherwise interested women from being interested in him over the course of his entire life. Okay, I’m kidding about the last part, but only because I’m so serious about the rest of this. And even though we had good initial results, the fact remains, empirically: women don’t want short men.I was hoping I’d never have to write one of these, but due to the increase in nasty comments earlier this year on a famous (infamous?) story published three years ago, I felt the need to write something that better sums up the whole of women in this growing city, not just one segment of the population.Women are typically there to dance to music that does not encourage them to grind with you, as reggaeton does. Or maybe try going to the theater or other cultural events.My friend Tatiana, the pretty and popular receptionist at The Wandering Paisa, met her boyfriend while she was waiting to see a play. You can’t really expect a woman to be on time in Colombia.
