Real Reason To Why Women Dont Date Very Tall Men?Page 1 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)

Would you date a guy 6ft 5 or over and if not why not?


yes I would and yes I have... a firefighter who was 6ft 7in corrrr bloody lovely lol... I made a wee mistake in my post on the other thread,my 14 year old son is 6ft 5 in not 6ft 7in,but still growing and the girls swoon over him,he wont have any problems dating for sure.... one thing I say though... if a tall man is very skinny that to me is a little of putting,as they tend to stoop more...

Well being almost 6ft tall, I dont have a problem with tall men at all..in fact I insist on it..lol. I have in the past dated shorter men and have always felt really self conscious so now, they have to be at least 6ft in order to get a look in.

Any tall men out that that wish to contact me...go for it..lol. We may not hit it off but this will not be the reason

It's because they don't find you attractive.

It's just an excuse, but a more original one than staying in and washing their hair.

Just find a woman who does like lanky blokes.

I love tall men. I some times think twice before dating a short man. Shortest i've dated is 5'6", my ex husband was 6'3" and if felt perfectly natural. It certainly wouldn't be a deciding factor for me as compatibility is much more important :)

I used to date someone who was 6ft 6".
I dont think height bothers most people i know it doesnt really bother me, i dont tend to date really short men as it makes me look daft,but if i liked someone i would get past it.

Their penises are likely to be painfully huge.

Because ironically most people go for someone who's the same as everyone else. Being different is a handicap when it comes to dating.

I had an ex who was 5'4" and had huge feet for his height. His feet were the only thing about him that wasn't small. Well, he had a huge ego too, IDK why.

If a woman says "you're too tall, I can't meet you," she is politely saying, "I don't fancy you." Simples.

When I initiate contact with a younger man and he replies, "I'm looking for someone closer to my own age," what he's REALLY saying is, "You're a crusty old crone and me mates would take the piss if they saw us out together."

That's life. Take the punches and move on.

Very strange thread, I would have said it's the opposite way around now......

Does this suggest an amount of social/media influence in who we want to date?

OK As a fifty year old woman I wouldn't look at your profile usually. but the friends would really put me off. Decades ago I would have thought I could stay friends, coped with an open relationship, but learnt the hard way that I can't. Perhaps young women have more sense now! You come across as v eligible and a challenge.Great marketing untill YOU get burnt.

Harrumphh because all the tall men passed me by . My partner is 5 foot 9, I'm 6 foot in my bare feet (although at my last hospital visit the nurse managed to add an inch and a half?).

I've rarely if ever been out with a man taller than myself and never been out with anyone who could top me when I was in my heels.

So perhaps the question could be turned around to why do tall men overlook taller women?

I'm 5'2 and I prefer tall men, about a foot taller then me. My dates are usually 5'10 to 6'2, 6'2 being just right for me.

10 years ago, I dated someone who was 6.11 (2.10m) yes, I came up to barely above his belly. We dated for about 2 years.

Yesterday, by chance I met someone who is 6.10. We had met online and had hit it off before I realized how tall he was. He had sent a picture called 7feetofsexy, and I was like, OMG, you're that tall! But did I say um, cancel the date? NO. We met, we hit it off, we're seeing each other again.

Do we look silly? hahaha yes. But is he fun, intelligent and great in bed? yes, yes and I dont know yet, but everyone's just rightwhen you're horizontal LOL

what are the chances that I'd end up with two very tall men? well , aside from my obvious charm and wit, I dont know. It's not something I plan or look for, it happens. Will it work, well, who knows? meanwhile, i'll enjoy the company and wont have to worry about getting lost at the mall or grocery as I'll know where he is every minute looking over the aisles LOL.

My date last night was apparently 5'7" hmm. But it didn't matter as I ended up having a great time, no point in being tall if you don't have anything else going for you!

Brick Navi. . 4. . How vulgar.

I found her post very enlightening...I've often wondered what it must be like, I'd need to meet a man over 6'10" to understand though.

Where I live there is a fair amount of very tall men particularly 18 year olds and those in their twenties - they grow them very tall over here all of a sudden - it's almost like living in the land of the giants. Although they are tall they are still in proportion as in they don't have overly long limbs or look awkward and too lanky.

my son is 6'5" and certainly has a lot going for him and yes it's true, he has lots of girls chasing after him.

The men in my family are all pretty tall....my 6 foot 4 son has had two tiny wee girlfriends, it hasn't been too much of a problem for him
Mind you his second cousin, all 6 foot 10 of him, can find life a bit difficult at times, the comments he gets from complete strangers!
My niece is 6 feet tall......got herself a 6 foot 4 husband....we are keeping a beady eye on her 3 daughters!!!
Me? at 5 foot 6 or 7 (depends on who measures me) , I prefer a taller man :-)

I actually had a couple of women tell me I'm too tall for them. I'm 6'6 and when I went on a couple of dates awhile back, there were women that said they didn't believe I was really that tall (why would I lie about being 6'6, maybe if I were 5'10 and fudge the inches to be 6')
But these women are the exception and not the rule. Dated one woman that was an even 5 foot. Current GF is 5'2.
For the record, I don't actively seek out shorter women. These women had always approached me first.

I am 4'10" and really dislike dating anyone under 5' 11.

In my experience shorter men are hard work, I do believe short man syndrome exists.


I'm "only 5'11" " and I certainly don't have short man syndrome - and neither does anyone who is my height. On the whole, I'd say I'm pretty comfortable with my stature. Must be the men in your area.
