Do tall men like dating short women

"Climb her like a tree." Us guys will make jokes along those lines, but at the end of the day, we aren't too hung up on whether a woman is a bit taller than us.

If you put on heels and all of a sudden feel like you're towering over your man and that makes you uncomfortable? As one friend so aptly put it, it's the women in our lives "who seem to be mostly interested in guys who are tall - not just taller but tall." It is rare to find a man who simply has to go one way or the other on the height debate.

With the prevalence of online dating these days we're going to see a lot more people show up to meet each other and say, "Huh.

However, I also deal with so many ignorant men who make a huge deal about my height, probably to bury their own insecurity or intimidation.

They make endless unwarranted comments, trying to reassure me that I don't seem "too tall" or "too big." They'll say, "You carry it well," or "Just don't wear heels and you're fine." They act shocked when I say I'm six feet, and beg me to stand back-to-back. These comments also imply that there's a cutoff at which a woman's height becomes unattractive and unacceptable — and that luckily, I fall below it.

I think the bigger issue is how comfortable random men are talking to me about my body.

My height isn't a purely aesthetic feature you can comment on candidly, like a coat or a hat.

When I was a teen my mother took me to the doctor and had my wrist x-rayed.
