This idea gets put into your head from a very young age… But whatever the reason, a lot of men today feel that their dating pool is limited to shorter women only, and that taller women are completely turned off by shorter men.
As a woman, I can tell you that this doesn’t have to be the case! And while Tom Cruise and Jamie Cullum are celebrities, yes, I want to point out that Dave Gardner is just a sports agent. So you don’t have to be a celebrity to date a taller woman!
So next time you meet a beautiful woman who just happens to be taller than you, just follow these 3 simple steps for success: The worst possible thing you can do when you meet a taller woman is bring her attention to your height difference right away… If there’s a height difference, she’ll eventually notice… To a woman, this screams “desperate.” If you feel the need to “prove” yourself to her because of your height, she’ll notice. So here’s a pro tip: Take her to a venue where the height difference is barely noticeable. If you’re standing next to each other and staring at a stage, she’ll be too distracted by the music to notice your height.
But by ignoring the difference, you’re showing her that women find attractive. That way, there won’t even be an opportunity to talk about it! And here’s the last thing you have to do to “seal the deal” and get her home with you… is a lot simpler than you might think: Whenever these guys hear a taller woman say things like,.. they don’t walk away, when most shorter guys would. Of course, there’s a difference between this kind of sexual confidence that gets you laid…

I know many an otherwise open-minded woman who swears that she would never date someone shorter than she is, and I used to count myself among them. According to the CDC, the average height difference between men and women is 5.5 inches (coincidentally — or maybe not — that’s about the same length as the average erect penis. And both men and women feel pressure to adhere to height norms: One 2008 study of college students found that about 50 percent of guys wanted their partners to be shorter than them, while 90 percent of women wanted their partners to be taller than them.
While other women might feel like they have to pass on a perfectly cute pair of shoes or stick to flats so they stay shorter than their dates, you’re already taller than your man in bare feet, what’s the difference between being 2 inches taller or 5? When I first started dating a shorter guy, I felt insecure: not about my own height but about whether I would read as "feminine" to my partner and, admittedly, to the world when we were out together.
I even wondered with some concern whether I weighed more than he did, again, not because I felt like I needed to lose weight, but because I had absorbed the cultural script that says that women should be daintier than guys.
