Sure, being tall has its advantages, especially if you want to play basketball, or reach something on a high shelf. But when it comes to dating, height is only one trait among many, and gives no indication of whether someone will be a good partner or not. But despite this, many women absolutely refuse to date someone who is shorter than they are, for no reason other than their height. It’s not logical, but it’s very common. Similarly, a number of women are inevitably more attracted to tall men.
How tall someone is comes into play in a number of places in the dating world. On online dating sites and apps, tall men often list their height, as a way of making themselves more appealing. Some men even lie about their height, adding an inch or two, to make women more likely to want to meet them. On the other side, when a woman dreams about her ideal man, chances are he’ll be tall and handsome. Popular culture agrees – in nearly every single romantic comedy or love story, the man is taller than the woman he ends up with.
This can be problematic for a number of reasons. Shorter men have stories about being rejected simply because of their height and tall women often talk about how hard it is to find a man who is taller that they are. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If two people have a good connection, and good chemistry, does it really matter who is taller?
A lot of celebrity couples don’t think it matters at all, and when you see them on the red carpet, it’s clear that they have no problem with a woman being taller than a man. Models are often taller than their boyfriends or husbands, but the list isn’t limited to them. There are also famous actors and singers who tower above their significant others.
More and more people are starting to realize that they don’t need to set a height restriction on their relationship, and that if they hit it off with someone, they shouldn’t worry so much about how tall they are.
