Tall woman dating short man
Recently, a colleague of mine, a successful psychologist 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.
The issue she struggles with is the same issue many other tall women deal with as they look for a good romantic partner.
When we talk about tall women, there’s what many people think of as ‘sexy-tall,’ the range of height where women are, say, 5’8” or 5’9”.
These women have the best of all possible worlds: They’re tall to the point that it’s easier to stay thin or carry weight well, but not so tall that they face the stigma of men not wanting want to date a tall woman.
But even if you look at celebrity couples like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes or Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, you will realise that tall women love short men. Actually, the types of men women like can surprise you sometimes.
Some women do fancy tall men and make no secret about it.
For some, they rarely wear heels – even if they like doing so; for others, they may make self-deprecating comments about their height in a defensive effort to fit in with what men want.
In no way should tall women apologize for their height.
Once they have god gifted height or good looks, they just stop working on other areas of their personality.In other words, tall women may have to put themselves out there more than other women who are less intimidating.The clincher, of course, is to develop thick skin and to not take disinterest or brush-offs from men personally. This is one of the most important exercises that can truly change how you feel about yourself and your body.For example, in your online dating profile, don’t be shy about making your height a focus of your profile. – about your physical attributes when you’ve got no investment, rather than anticipating a date but later being let down if he’s not interested in you.It’s also important for tall women to understand that, in light of the many men who are intimidated about dating a tall woman, these women should give themselves permission to approach men they are interested in.
