That’s pretty tall for a female. It’s certainly no record breaker, but it’s significantly taller than the average female. Sadly, it’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, “at least” is a solid 5’10” and really, I’d much prefer him to be an even 6 feet (you know, so I can wear heels).
I don’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 5’4” tend to think they need a giant of a man who’s well over 6 feet. Where exactly does that leave tall women, like me?
For every girl who says, “How often are you going to stand together anyway?” I say: How tall are YOU? Because I’m willing to bet they are shorter than 5’8” and therefore can wear all their shoes and be same height or maybe still shorter than their man. I’d love to settle for same height. But with all the lying that happens with online dating, I basically can’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 5’10”. But I think we all know this is risky since the majority of guys lie about their height (don’t deny it men – you do). For some strange reason though, I get lots of guys who are 5’6” 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. I’m not one of them. Please respect that I have a minimum height requirement on my profile – 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 I’m 6 feet to better weed out the shorties. Don’t let it come to that gentlemen.
