No, short men like tall women. Medium height men like tall women. Tall guys like– well, I suppose tall guys like low ceilings. But short guys like to be seen with tall women. It’s a status thing. People see a short man with a tall woman and they think, “Wow, he must have a great personality/be loaded/is clearly packing a lot downstairs.”
I suppose some men feel intimidated because it makes them feel like less of a man in the relationship. But that is outdated thinking and, frankly, limits your dating prospects. I enjoy seeing people of all sizes paired up. Tall guys with short women, Katie Holmes with Tom Cruise. If the tall people of the world continue to stick with their own kind, they will inevitably create a race of giants who will lord over us with their long legs and ability to reach the top cabinet. They will surely make the short people of the world their slaves, and taunt us by dangling shiny things above our reach.
But, anyway, I find that the opposite is usually true–tall women often don’t like short men. It makes them feel weird to tower over their man, and they (wrongly) may assume that a short guy can’t protect them. (Short guys are good in a fight. They’re quick, and years of bullying have made them experts in the “low blow.”) And, yes, a tall woman and short man slow dancing together is admittedly kind of awkward.
On the other hand, my girlfriend is tall. Let me ask her….She says, “Hi GuySpeak-ers! I’m 5’9. Why should I limit my dating choices by only dating people who are taller than me? Also, Nick is an amazing boyfriend and you should all ask him lots of questions and praise his awesomeness.” Okay, maybe I edited her response a bit there.
lndeed, we cannot allow this stigma against short men to continue. Tall women of the world, I beseech you, go forth and ask a short man out for coffee. Walk proudly hand-in-hand, and make beautiful children together. At the very least, look down and smile at them once in a while. Your soulmate might literally be under your nose.
