dating my prs - Do men like dating taller women
Unusually, the fragile male ego isn’t to blame for the problem. The issue is that tall women want to date even taller men. The typical British female is, according to the Office for National Statistics, 5’3”.
According to a survey by High And Mighty, 70 percent of women say a man under six feet wouldn't stand a chance with them. For starters, society has taught us that men are "supposed" to be taller than women, but if we go by that archaic rationale, then I should be in the kitchen cooking up a pot roast for my boyfriend.
Then, of course, there's the equally antiquated idea that men who are vertically challenged are somehow less masculine.
There simply aren’t enough 6’3″ men to go around, and if you restrict yourself to them, you’re killing your chances of finding love – for pretty much no reason. Just keep in mind that your current height criteria cuts your potential mates drastically – and that’s before we talk about age, ethnicity, education, income, personality, religion, emotional intelligence, values, kindness, consistency, attraction to you and desire to be married. During my last round of dating, I took Evan’s advice and set the height cutoff at 5’8″ instead of 6’0″ like I’d previously used to.
It would be like a male millionaire holding out for a female millionaire who makes more than he does. He’s gotta have all of those things, plus be in the 15% of men who are six feet tall? Please read the article here and share your thoughts below. It increased my dating pool dramatically, so I no longer felt like I had to go on dates with borderline douchebags just because they’re tall enough.
Some might take heart from Health of the Nation statistics, which show that 30% of UK men under 25 are now over six feet tall.
