Girl dating shorter guy
What’s worse, according to statistics, half the men in the country are my height or shorter.
When it comes to dating, that makes the chances of finding a potential boyfriend slimmer than most – if, like me, you care about finding a man who's taller than you.
If trying to catch the attention of a man however, the same problem reared its ugly head – as she admitted that she would opt for less height in the shoe department in these situations.
“Being tall can make you feel intimidating to men, and therefore less likely to be approached,” she mused.
At just under 5ft 10in, I consider myself a tall woman.
The average male in England is 5ft 10in, while the typical female is a mere 5ft 5ins, so you could say I’m well over average height for my gender.
If 5ft 10ins is too tall for me, and it's the ideal for someone else, why can’t we be happy as we are?
Darcy Bussell was known for breaking the mould in the ballet world for being taller than average, but even she stands at what I consider a short 5ft 8ins.If that sounds dramatic, just consider that on the rare occasions I do wear stilettos, I tower over my usually shorter female friends.It's awkward trying to hold a conversation while bending down to listen. A mate of mine who is 6ft tall admitted that while she'd prefer to be a few inches shorter (my height, at 5ft 10in), she actually likes being tall and wants to remain so – even though she's often felt "awkward and self-conscious" because of her height.So it seems ladies that we do in fact let the height of men affect how feminine we feel. Or is this a basic animal instinct that is out of our control, helping us to pick a mate that our brains simply can’t reason its way out of?I’d love to say I’m going to try and break the mould, but I think I’ll be searching for that 6ft 4ins man of my dreams for a while before I throw away my flat shoes. @Ana_elizabeth6 The Big Short, the film adaptation of Michael Lewis' book of the same name about the causes of the financial crisis, opens in UK cinemas this weekend.
