It's not easy being a tall woman.
While some women think being tall is something worth writing a book about -- like Arianne Cohen's "The Tall Book" -- other women perceive it to be a disability equivalent to a clubfoot. Mostly, it's a blessing and a curse. I can reach the highest shelves, but I'll never blend into the crowd. Dating? That's a whole other story.

It might be sorry to say, but I can't recall ever really caring or paying attention. Tall, short, big, small, black, white, blond or green hair, it might be something I initially notice but it soon all fades away depending on what comes out of her mouth. An inner beauty, as well as an inner uglyness, will always quickly over shadow any physical appearance, and it's not the physical person I need to relate to but the human inside. I'm not that shallow that I really give a rats ass what people think about who I walk around with, it's all about who I can relate and converse with.

I am a woman who is 6'1" and I have no trouble wearing 3 or 4 inch heels. I love being tall and have never had a problem with dating. I know I intimidate some men, but there are plenty who absolutely don't mind!

My wife has about one inch of height on me... well, she did before having kids. I think she shrank a bit.

I think that tall women are beautiful and if a man has a problem with that then they are either shallow or intimidated. It is just my opinion but only a good man can accept a woman without judging her by her looks and only look at her intelligence, personality, kindness, and caring. I also believe that equally for women. My husband who is a genius accepted me even though I have a little bit of a learning disability and am overweight. Looks of any kind have absolutely nothing to do with how good, intelligent, caring, and kind that a man or woman is. I also feel that judging a person entirely on their intelligence is not good either Just because one is not really smart does not mean that they are stupid or unable to understand anything at all.

No problem, I had this friend even shorter than you. His VERY tall girlfriend loved him because "when he was toes to toes, his nose was in it and when he was nose to nose his toes was in it".

The problem i have found with dating tall woman, is that they usually want taller men.
I am 6' 2'' and i wanted to date a woman who was 6'2'' and she wanted an guy like 6'5'' or so. I happen to like tall woman, but i often find that they have small minds.

First I will admit I have never dated anyone taller than I. It has nothing to do with preference however as I love tall woman. Anyone under 5'9" to me is short. So I don't have a story about dating a tall woman. But I wish I did.

Tall women are sexy even without trying. Something about them that demand your attention. But in my experience there have not been but a very few that I have even seen let alone known.

For me height is pretty much the same as beauty. It is not the important thing. Intelligence and a warm caring woman will blow me away every time.

I'm a performer, 5'9" with an athletic build. I "love" a woman just a few inches taller, with long gorgeous legs, etc. Tom Cruise, Eddie Murphy, Robert DeNiro and a few more artists are my height and seem to look very well escorting a statuesque model on the red carpet. They are extremely hot in lingerie and know how to wrap their legs around me in bed...Mmm... Let me know if I qualify. 'Will show you my photo and bio.

I have dated only shorter girls till now, I'm 1.78 cm and 18 years old and just three days ago I tried to date a 1.90 and 27 years old without heels(she just doesn't wear heels that frequent because she doesn't need them but she is very hot, as a whole and especially her legs) and she is in the same neighborhood as me. But she rejected me because she said that she would only date me if I was taller and older :( Dammit, I won't give up so easily though xD

If you date a taller woman then the day will come when she is in her time of month and she is smashing up the place and you - then you better have a smith and wesson handy. I reckon a man should be able to carry his woman over the threshold and if he can not do this then he has bitten off more than he can chew. That goes for height and weight. Marriage/relationship between man and woman is like a boxing match and if the man wants to wear the trousers then he better have the longest reach and top her on weight and height. You know it makes sense! Women like a man that is stronger than them or else they have no respect for the man. Any woman that thinks she should be stronger than the man is probably dangerous to know or a lesbian or both. There endeth the lesson teenagers and virgins.

If you do not have enough self confidence in yourself to not feel manly unless you are physically able to over power your woman, you got some issues. So I suppose you would feel the same way about female body builders?

Women have it so easy. Tall, small, young, old, thin or fat, a man will hit up anything with a pulse or at least that hasn't hit room temperature yet.
