Online dating tall men
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. During my last round of dating, I took Evan’s advice and set the height cutoff at 5’8″ instead of 6’0″ like I’d previously used to.
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.
Women act like they are playing is that even if you create (or in our case, search on Tinder for) your perfect match, you won’t be satisfied. And I have to believe that if the man stood up and was merely eye to eye with the woman, it wouldn't matter -- even if she generally preferred taller guys.
And yet, isn't this brazen height-ism just another variation on the kind of "no fat chicks" misogyny that would seem both offensive and outdated if a guy were to just casually drop it into a Tinder profile?But, as long as they’re cool with the height difference, and have good partner qualities, so what?As long as the man isn’t intimidated by my 6’2″ and 6’3″ children, I’m fine with the arrangement.Yet some short women discriminate against average sized (5’7-5’11”) men. In order to find a guy six inches taller, I’d have to find a guy who was 6’5.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.
