This just in: Guys over 5'10" are twice as likely to cheat on their partner.
A new study says short guys live longer than tall ones — especially men under 5ft 2in. Let's strip you of everything you've ever thought about dating a short guy and set the record straight. Right. Now.
So you're into a lady who happens to be a few inches taller than you are. No big! Here's how to be chill about the height difference, with as little self-consciousness as possible from both parties.
How important is a height difference to you? Height is important to most people. A man’s height is the number one thing a girl looks for on an online dating profile. And yes, plenty of guys also searching online care about height too. So what’s the best way to deal with a height difference with someone you meet online?
Ever wonder why we usually gravitate toward the tallest man in the room? A new study found that it's all about biology. Scientists say that women perceive men of substantial height as better fighters and more useful than their shorter counterparts.
Like everyone else, I watched Jeff Wong and Erin Martin's totally over-the-top save-the-date wedding video. Like many others, I noticed that the bride-to-be is taller than her groom-to-be. How much taller? Significantly. At least four inches, I think. Maybe six. As I've written about here before, I'm tall (6'1") and dating a tall woman has its own unique challenges. But the fact of the matter is that, for the most part, I go out with guys my height or taller. The shortest guy I ever went out with? 5'10". The tallest? 6'6". Lately, I've been wondering, does that make me a heightist?
I'm tall. I mean, I'm really tall. And I don't mean 5'10" tall. I'm 6'1". That's ridiculously tall. Kermit the Frog once said: "It's not easy being green." Well, it's not easy being a tall woman, either. Among the more common pickup lines we tall ladies hear: "Do you play basketball?" (No.) "What's the weather like up there?" (Icy.) "I'd like to climb you." (Really, I'd rather you wouldn't.) While some women think being tall is something worth writing a book about, other women perceive it to be a disability equivalent to a clubfoot. Mostly, it's a blessing and a curse. I can reach the highest shelves, but I'll never blend into the crowd. Dating? That's a whole other story. For guys who admire amazons, here's how to bag a tall chick.
For some men, Amazon women aren't just for comic books. For them an Amazon women—taller than six-feet, who tips the scale at more than 220 pounds—is a rarity they'd gladly spend up to $500 an hour on. But don't think there's sex involved, many times these men get off on feeling small and enjoy being manhandled, if you will, by these Amazon ladies.
Height difference is a major dating problem. Biology and convention have long prevented a tall girl and a short man from getting together. But the confidence not to let her height be a problem can change the difference from a dealbreaker to a turn-on. It's all about feeling good, looking good, and realizing that those heels will probably not emasculate a quality guy.
