Celebrity women dating shorter men
What’s worse, according to statistics, half the men in the country are my height or shorter.When it comes to dating, that makes the chances of finding a potential boyfriend slimmer than most – if, like me, you care about finding a man who's taller than you.If trying to catch the attention of a man however, the same problem reared its ugly head – as she admitted that she would opt for less height in the shoe department in these situations.“Being tall can make you feel intimidating to men, and therefore less likely to be approached,” she mused.
I’ve even seen the opposite in many relationships where big burley men are obviously the ones being whipped into shape by their petite, demure looking girlfriends.It doesn’t help a young growing girl feel feminine either, when cast as ‘long-legs’, the eighth dwarf in my ballet school’s production of ‘Snow White and the Many Dwarfs’.My role was created for me simply so I could learn the same dances as my classmates who were the other seven dwarfs, but saw me tower over the girl who played Snow White.On debating the subject with a man recently, and a fairly tall one at that at 6ft 2ins, he seemed to cement the concerns of my girlfriends.
While he said he loved tall girls, he explained that if he were to go out with a woman who was taller than him he’d be worried everyone else would assume that his girlfriend would be the one "wearing the trousers" (and not just the Ballroom trousers) in the relationship.
Growing up in an all-girls school I was always chosen to play the male parts in drama productions due to my height (well I presumed it was due to my height…), and knew, despite my dreams, I would always be too tall and heavy to be a ballet dancer.
