ThatвЂ™s pretty tall for a female. ItвЂ™s certainly no record breaker, but itвЂ™s significantly taller than the average female. Sadly, itвЂ™s also as tall as the average male.
What does this mean in terms of dating life? It means a guy must be at least a certain height for me to be comfortable dating him. For me, вЂњat leastвЂќ is a solid 5вЂ™10вЂќ and really, IвЂ™d much prefer him to be an even 6 feet (you know, so I can wear heels).
I donвЂ™t know why all the shorties keep getting the tall guys, but this nonsense must stop. Did you know the average woman is 5 ft. 4 in. and the average man is 5 ft. 8 in.? For some reason though, women who are 5вЂ™4вЂќ tend to think they need a giant of a man whoвЂ™s well over 6 feet. Where exactly does that leave tall women, like me?
For every girl who says, вЂњHow often are you going to stand together anyway?вЂќ I say: How tall are YOU? Because IвЂ™m willing to bet they are shorter than 5вЂ™8вЂќ and therefore can wear all their shoes and be same height or maybe still shorter than their man. IвЂ™d love to settle for same height. But with all the lying that happens with online dating, I basically canвЂ™t wear shoes while on dates to even attempt to pull that one off.
When setting up searches for online dating, I always set the height to be a minimum of 5вЂ™10вЂќ. But I think we all know this is risky since the majority of guys lie about their height (donвЂ™t deny it men вЂ“ you do). For some strange reason though, I get lots of guys who are 5вЂ™6вЂќ or (gasp!) shorter sending me messages. No.
Just like in an amusement park, you must be AT LEAST my height to get on this ride.
Some woman can handle being taller than their man. IвЂ™m not one of them. Please respect that I have a minimum height requirement on my profile вЂ“ or at least take note of how tall I am and spend some time thinking about that. My next step is going to be lying about my height and saying IвЂ™m 6 feet to better weed out the shorties. DonвЂ™t let it come to that gentlemen.
