Short men dating taller women
It would be like a male millionaire holding out for a female millionaire who makes more than he does. He’s gotta have all of those things, plus be in the 15% of men who are six feet tall? Please read the article here and share your thoughts below. It increased my dating pool dramatically, so I no longer felt like I had to go on dates with borderline douchebags just because they’re tall enough.
Let me tell you, there are a lot of really amazing men on this side of six feet.
On the other hand, with tall women, since only 15% of men are over 6 feet tall, it would stand to reason that a 5’11” woman would be well served to open up to shorter men, instead of insisting that he has to be 6’3′, because that’s how tall she is in heels. She ended up marrying a guy a few inches shorter than her. And if this bugs you and you think you should be holding out for a tall guy, that’s your business.
There simply aren’t enough 6’3″ men to go around, and if you restrict yourself to them, you’re killing your chances of finding love – for pretty much no reason. Just keep in mind that your current height criteria cuts your potential mates drastically – and that’s before we talk about age, ethnicity, education, income, personality, religion, emotional intelligence, values, kindness, consistency, attraction to you and desire to be married.

If one partner is chronically unemployed or in debt, relations can get strained. If your partner can’t understand what you’re talking about or lacks the maturity to try, he’s a waste of time. If someone is morbidly obese, he’s probably not making it to age 70. ) But one thing that I’ve never really gotten – after 10 years as a dating coach – was women’s obsession with height. However, “when the author randomized the information as well to see what would come up by chance, he found something surprising: left to chance, the wives were taller in 7.8 percent of couples— twice as many as before. The author of the Jezebel piece is 5’11” and had a very healthy and refreshing take on height: I never felt I was making some kind of concession by dating men shorter than me — I just dated people I was attracted to.(By the way, ladies, this does NOT mean he has to be taller, smarter or fitter than you. Meaning, people are choosing to maintain this six inches of difference by going out of their way to pair up according to this distinction.” This is a rigid and arbitrary preference – most noteworthy, to me, in short and tall women. So, if you’re 5’1″, what difference does it make if he’s 5’7″ or 6’1″? But since most men are shorter than I am, had I eliminated them on the basis of shortness, I’d have been sitting out all those dances I never actually went to.Recently, a pal of mine, a successful Public Relations officer in her mid-30s, confided in me about an ongoing problem she faces in her dating life: She feels that she’s simply too tall for most men, standing at almost six feet.
