Dating man short
It received little response, and I’ve since classed up to thirst trapping on Instagram like a normal person.
But the Jonas-Chopra height debate reenergized me, so I decided to email a few of my friends on both ends of the height spectrum to see how being tall (or not) has affected their love lives (or not).
I didn’t want to mention it for the same reason that Tom didn’t want to mention it in his profile: because it’s irrelevant to anything that makes him a good accountant, husband, or father.
Yet his height defines him, since it has prevented otherwise interested women from being interested in him over the course of his entire life. He’s just been confronted with a very ugly reality that has shaken his confidence in people.
”(I, too, have had some variation of “tall person” in every dating profile I’ve ever had.)“On dating apps, I am always super deliberate about posting a photo where I am standing with my shorter friends, for context,” Alisa, 5’11, told me.
“In the bio sections I’ll usually name my most marked characteristics (goofy, thoughtful, kind) and include ‘tall’ right along with that.
Most folks were very eager to talk about it, because as my friend Anna (5’10’) said, “I am fairly certain that my experience of being a tall woman — even prior to meeting/dating/marrying my shorter-than-me husband — is probably fairly representative of literally anyone who doesn’t fit any one person’s average, stereotypical picture of what a woman should look like.
So I moved my profile from Pittsburgh and posted it for 3 days in a town where nobody knew me (Philadelphia).
Idk if it helps at all but I’m 5’7” and am about to go on my third date tonight with a guy is also 5’7”! There are women out there who don’t put that much emphasis on height.
Unfortunately, our website is currently unavailable in most European countries.
“I once went on a date with a girl who literally was 5 feet tall,” said Michelle, 5’11, “and I felt uncomfortably tall.
After that, I made sure to include my height in my profile, so when people met me they weren’t terrified by the fact I was a so tall!
