Humor’s the best.” Even guys who do find a gal who’s fine and dandy with a height differential know that being an odd couple can be hard — for instance, strangers may do doubletakes and friends and family may make snide, behind-the-back comments from friends and family.
“Generally speaking, if you’re a short guy and you’re dating a tall woman and you walk into a bar, people tend to laugh or whisper about you,” says Eric.
Eric, for one, was at first surprised when his online profile got interest from taller women who were breaking the very height requirements they listed in their own online profile.
“They write that they’re looking for a taller guy, but then again, they’re contacting me,” he says, adding that at first he felt the need to explain to them that he might not live up to their lofty standards.
So be honest, but also be willing to take a proactive role in scanning for and emailing women online since you may not make their minimum height requirement when they do the searching.
