Anytime she’s approached by a man shorter than she is, she knows he’s got confidence in spades.
However, as it turns out, a lot of men can’t handle the fact that a woman is taller than them.
Sexy, blonde, with bangs that covered her forehead and a cute button-nose, looking sleek and bored in a black form-fitting dress. I smirked at her with a wink, and she pulled herself up to her full height. Add that to my list of strange fetishes, alongside the Pepto Bismol one.
“Too bad you aren’t taller.” She paused, looking at me in disbelief. “Well I’m already way taller than you, short legs,” she said, putting her arms on her hips and trying very hard to loom over me. Why wouldn’t I, when I used a line from Thundercats? I think they are damn sexy, especially if they’re taller than me.
I walked over, leaned against the bar, and ordered a drink. “Hi, I’m Rami,” I said, using the world’s best opening line. “You’re very cute, Tina,” I said, gazing into her in the eyes. “You know, I’ve always said one’s legs are long enough, as long as they reach the ground.” This time I got a big laugh. And I have a confession to make: I love tall women.
Apparently, it’s only okay if the heels come off and she’s their height or shorter.
In fact, chatting with a tall female friend of mine, I’ve discovered that she feels her height is a problem in her dating life. She’s only 6 foot nothing, but apparently that’s enough to mess everything up.
She’s ok with being taller than her boyfriend, but lots of boys aren’t. However, there is, as always, a silver lining to the problem.
In her case, her height screens away the short guys that have low self-esteem.
Here’s a cool secret about tall women: they get approached by less men than your average girl.
As such, if you’re a geek with brass balls, you’ve got a definite edge. Even if she’s not into you, she’ll appreciate the attention.
Now, the sad thing is, most tall girls I’ve met have a slight self-esteem issue because of their height.
