Why don't tall men choose to date tall women?Page 1 of 23    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23)
stop analysing people so much. it's like when you buy a car that you never
seen before that day. Then in the days following, you see all kinds of cars the
same as yours color and all.

Same goes for people, if you keep analysing about tall/short people relationship,
those are the people you will notice more.

I am 5' 9", and I don't look to date a tall woman or a short woman, I look to date
someone who I enjoy my time with.

As far as preferences, Long legged women is what catches my eye the first, love women
with long legs....whoo hoo!!!!

Like I said, it's how I feel and how much I enjoy my time with someone, be it she be
tall or not, makes no matter.

I don't think that these men deliberatly date shorter women, i think they date these women because there is an attraction to the person and that maybe they share common interests, goals and enjoy each others company.

heheh you're so right. I've just been asked out on a date by a man who is 6ft2 (not from here) and most of the men I've gone out with were all 6 ft and above, the tallest one being 6ft4. My cut off point is 5'10 actually. But to be fair, I've also turned down many men who were 6ft that I wasn't attracted to

Sometimes guys like shorter women because it makes them feel manly. Like...the dominate one or something.

I agree with the OP. I've seen 6'3" guys with women under 5'0" and I just thought to myself that they're destined for the sideshow circuit. :)

Me, I date tall women (women at least 5'8") whenever I get the chance.

Okay which world does this happen in?I'm 5 feet, short enough...but your theory doesn't apply to me....why don't I get asked out by 6 feet and tall men???Heck....the only men I get asked out are the ones I haven't known for even 5 minutes, life's a pain sometimes.I'm still wondering..........

Hey tortured.

Do not despair. I am 6ft tall as is my wife. Hence, productive tall-tall dating occurs.

On the bright side, the top of short guys heads may offer a convenient place to set down your pint...

Just a thought.

Just so we can frustrate short men even further by taking the petite girls that would settle for a short guy who is just slightly taller then them.

sorry little dudes

OP
I'm 6' 2" so you still wouldn't be to tall for me. lol

I love to date tall men-- the taller the better. I am 5'8" and on an average, 85% of the men I have met here on POF, are my exact same height -- even if their profile says otherwise.

...I'm a bitter 6ft1 woman, in case you hadn't guessed ;)
I'm 6'1" and wrote a hello to a 6' girl here on POF just today. My last GF was 5'3", the one before that was 5'9". I don't think I have any real pattern in regards to height.

There is something fun about a girl you can pick up and move around with great ease; but I actualy have more dominant fun with a girl closer to my size. The stronger they are, the more fun they are to top ;)

Say, One crazy girl, I've dated ladies who were taller than me and those that were shorter me. When we were verticle, my feet reached the ground too! And when we were horizonal, well, it didn't matter! Let people think what they will, they have absolutely no say on your happiness!

THERE is a site for tall women looking for tall men. Don't give up gf. If that is your desire, say a daily prayer for this request. I do. But, not just a tall man, but a ethical, moral, integrity, educated and a good religious upbringging. If you're gonna pray, do it royally.

Also, look your best when you can. I don't all the time. I always dress casual, hair dyed and pedicures too. I love clothes and clothes shopping too. Wear cute sandals. Yes, some tall men do prefer shorties. So what, to each his own. Don't focus on the negative things in life. Speak positive words to yourself and to others. Say it out loud. I will have a taller bf than me, and he will be a gentleman, etc...Peace gf.

Short women come after me. Most tall women won't give me the time of day for some reason.

I am 6 feet tall and fairly often strange (unknown) men will approach me and say how nice it is to see a tall woman. I don't know if they would date me, since I'm not looking for a date, I don't send out those "vibes". But I think if I was looking for a date I could scrounge up some dates from these guys who like tall women.

Bottom line: some guys are attracted to tall women.
Some guys are attracted to sheep. Go figure.

My friends and I were in a discussion about this the other day. Basically, the general consensus was that it comes down to these two things:

1. A lot of guys seem to get nervous around taller women. It's like they're intimidated by them or something, for whatever reason, so they simply don't even try.

and

2. For a lot of guys, being with a woman that's a fair bit shorter than you just feels 'right'. There's something about looking DOWN into her eyes, and her looking up into yours, that only seems to amplify your attraction to her. Don't ask why; it's like an unconscious response or something.

tortured, you're way too young for me, and at 6'5" not too many women are tall to me. But it's not something I have any choice over.

I believe his point is that height may not always be a criteria in what someone finds attractive in a women. In that case, they are not deliberately out to seek tall women. Attraction comes in all sizes. (Some settling of contents may occur during shipping.)
