@@ Women Dating Shorter Men Make A Stand About Their Dating Preferences

 

It Is Subjective

It goes without saying that height does not have anything to do with how good a person is. Being tall does not make you more virtuous than someone short. However, the fact of the matter is that people do have preconceived opinions about people based on their height. A woman called Lizz Adams posted a photo of herself with her husband but never thought that it would spark such a big debate on Twitter!

Her Short King

The heated debate started with a tweet sent in by a woman known as Lizz Adams. It was all about dating short or tall men. The conversation started when she posted a picture of her husband, whom she calls her ‘king, stands at no more than 5’” or 165 cm. Liz, who is taller than him, appears to think that tall guys are not very good people.

Height Doesn’t Matter

A lot of Twitter users came through and posted photos of them and their shorter partners as well. In general, people seem to agree that how tall you are does not have anything to do with your character.

“It blew up after a couple of big accounts retweeted it, and I think it hit a nerve with a lot of people who misunderstood the intention behind it,” she said. She also added that it might have to do with her comedy background.

Their Insecurities

“I’m a comedian, so I speak in hyperbole a lot, but a lot of people thought I was being dead serious or trying to speak badly about tall people which was not my intention,” she explained. “I am taller than my husband, who I love very much, but was just pointing out how arbitrary height requirements are…”

Her Opinion

“…and that discounting a potential partner based on their height could prevent you from meeting someone really special,” she said in the hopes of clarifying her statements. She went on to say, “Being a good man has nothing to do with how you look.” Lizz also explained what she thought of men feeling insecure about their height and being too intimidated to date women taller than them.

Going Against The Odds

“I imagine it’s because of the reaction people have when they see a taller woman with a shorter man,” Lizz explained. She continued by saying, “I don’t think the stigma applies as much to non-hetero couples, but there’s this perception that women should be with men that are larger than them and that sort of toxic masculinity makes men feel like they have to be huge and strong to be manly, but being a good man has nothing to do with how you look.”

Word Of Advice

“My advice would be to shoot your shot!” she told everyone. “Get to know the person you’re interested in, establish a connection and go for it! If they’re not interested, that’s ok, they’re not the person for you, move on to someone who appreciates you for you, not just your optics!”

Tall People

The fourth woman explained that since she is only 5’3” or 160 cm herself, any man her height or taller would be tall for her. The next one said that she would consider any man tall if he is at least 5’9” or 175 cm tall. As for the last person in the group, she said that a man must be at least 6’3” or 190 cm tall to catch her eye. However, men are not the only ones who get singled out on a height basis.

A Scientific Reason

“I went on quite a few dates with multiple guys who were shorter. With my shoes, I was taller than all of them. They all ghosted me,” said a user. There is actually a scientific reason we view tall people a certain way!

A Common Misconception

It is not just women who like taller men or individuals. Apparently, even normal people share that opinion as well. For one thing, it affects who people vote for! Scientists revealed that people think differently about tall people.

What People Prefer

A lot of people automatically arrive at the assumption that tall people are physically strong. We have our evolutionary path to thank for this. Most animals also equate size and strength. This is why taller people are assumed to make strong leaders. In fact, it can even impact the results of the elections!

Just An Illusion

Human beings have a tendency to think that tall individuals are more competent at what they do than they might actually be. You can think of this as an offshoot of the Halo Effect. American voters often vote for taller candidates too!

It’s All About The Angle

Morgan Hoey said that she might be 2 inches taller than her husband, but she does not mind. After all, the most important thing here is to have a good and loving partner. Height does not play a role in that! Cheesy as it might sound, but it is what’s on the inside that counts.
