Different Selections Making the Stairs Problem

Hey everyone! I am trying to do the part on the pyramid to clear down to the ramp. I’ve made the loop cuts, but when I try to select, it selects the entire side, rather than that parts in between the loop cuts. What am I doing wrong? I’ve taken a screenshot to show you:

You can see that even though I clicked the edge in between the two loop cuts, it is selecting the entire edge from point to point. I’ve watched the video many times at this point, and I can clearly see that when Michael uses the selection tools it only selects what’s inside the loop cuts. But when I do the same thing, it selects the entire pyramid side.

What have I done wrong?
