Short woman dating a tall man

I will however add that, if you say you’re looking for 5’8″, you will get responses from guys who say they’re 5’7″, and are actually 5’6″.But, as long as they’re cool with the height difference, and have good partner qualities, so what?" Here's my take: You can't only date people who are a certain height; it would be far too limiting.I've heard friends say they wouldn't date any guy who isn't 6'. An article on Jezebel discusses a report from the Atlantic that illustrates that the average height differential between 4600 married American couples was six inches and that the wife was taller in 3.8% of couples.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.

Let me tell you, there are a lot of really amazing men on this side of six feet.Whether you're a short man (5'5-5'8) or a very short man (5'4 and under), you will find that many women are as tall if not taller than you.So what exactly are you supposed to do, follow society's rules and only date women who are at least 4 inches shorter than you? Your dating pool would be extremely small (but at least society will be happy right? Let's also not forget about the many short women who have stricter height requirements than their taller sistren. (And quit acting like her height is some illustration of their age gap; she'd still be that short if he was 30 instead of 42.) Unfortunately, people do judge women by their height, and some of the assumptions they draw from size are shocking.In that same study, tall ladies took home the titles of attractive, intelligent, flirtatious, and healthy. We can try to change society's perceptions of women based on height for the future, but there's not much we can do about an existing adult's height now. And for anyone who's ready to chime in with "Well, why doesn't she just date short guys?
