For example, in your online dating profile, don’t be shy about making your height a focus of your profile. – about your physical attributes when you’ve got no investment, rather than anticipating a date but later being let down if he’s not interested in you.It’s also important for tall women to understand that, in light of the many men who are intimidated about dating a tall woman, these women should give themselves permission to approach men they are interested in.Despite Mr Pastorelli being 9cm shorter than his wife, Ms Karen Phan, 40, a photography producer, the couple have never let their height difference get in the way of their relationship.
“Overall, I think you look pretty good,” for example, or “I like my [insert body part].” If you can’t come up with a few body parts that you like, you need to accept that you’re not going to attract a good guy until you feel better about your body. I remember after Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise divorced, she joked on a talk show that she could “finally wear high heels.” Wrong, Nicole: It would have been better for your self-esteem to have worn them all along. If you’re a tall woman who’s dating someone new, odds are that the height issue is going to come up in conversation.
If he broaches the issue, don’t be defensive but feel free to ask him where he stands on the issue.
Here’s an example: (Smiling) “I know some guys have a thing about feeling uncomfortable with a tall woman.
Are you like that, or is that not something you really care about?
Tall women who experience romantic discrimination the most are approximately 5’10” and taller.
If you take an informal poll of men, you’ll quickly see that many men have little or no interest in dating a tall woman.
After you’ve heard your new guy’s response, feel free to state your own position – another indicator of confidence. I’ve never really understood what the big deal is, because I’m happy with my body.” Men love women who like themselves, and confronting this issue directly allows you to remind him that you are clear, know what you want, and – most importantly – like yourself enough to stand up for the things you believe in!
At the end of the day, tall women make terrific friends, family members, and romantic partners.
For some, they rarely wear heels – even if they like doing so; for others, they may make self-deprecating comments about their height in a defensive effort to fit in with what men want.
In no way should tall women apologize for their height.
The two traits men are ultimately most attracted to in women are happiness and self-confidence, so it’s important for women’s own self-esteem – and their dating chances – that they feel confident and proud of their body.
