While some people find that their height doesn't impact dating at all, others may feel that it allows for judgment, fetishization, and stereotyping.In a society where there are ideals of femininity and masculinity, it can be difficult for individuals who don't fit neatly into those boxes.Plus, navigating the world of dating is already a mess, so being on an extreme end of any physical spectrum doesn't exactly make it any easier.Kevin: I'm not one to complain about being short, because once you realize you can shop in the children's section and climb on top of things to get to out-of-reach objects, you're pretty much on a level playing field with the rest of the world. I think a lot of guys fetishize the height gap and say things like, "I'm so into you because you're so short," or "It's really hot knowing that I could lift you up in bed," etc. The average woman is eight percent shorter than her male partner.Of course the ability to search for people who meet our criteria is part of the appeal of online dating.Having long legs is both an advantage and a disadvantage: men have something to look at, but having long legs sometimes makes shopping quite difficult for women. If there is one perk of being tall, it is that men find it easier to notice tall girls.
“We were at our holiday party, and a coworker who’s around my height asked if I’d like to dance.There are a lot of things that tall women have to struggle with, such as finding pants of dresses long enough.Nonetheless, they also have some perks, since there are numerous men who like big women.Or guys can also be completely dismissive once they see me in person and say, "You seem much taller in your photos" or "I didn't realize how short you were until you got off that stool." I recently had one guy actually look over my head to see if the person he was meeting was someone else besides me. But of course in a completely contradictory way, I'm usually attracted to men who are much, much taller than I am.So I guess opposites attract, or I just enjoy the awkward interactions/comical antics of doing activities with someone much taller than I? Standing out (physically) my whole life has led me to be much more confident and fearless of being different. There are definitely a lot of great guys who only see six feet as one small part of who I am.
