The only real solution is for lonely, tall women could be to go looking for the Masai tribe in Africa. You may be able to persuade one of those seven-foot guys to take you dining and dancing. Of course, you may end up spending the rest of your life herding cattle and jumping up and down in ceremonial dances.
Seeking height match-ups in Africa may not be too appealing for the modern, too-tall, independent single woman. However, if you do succeed in making a love connection, at least you won’t ever again have to deal with those bothersome five-foot five guys who keep hitting on you while gazing soulfully into your bosom. Or dating a Tom Cruise-ish little man and be forced to travel around with him while you’re slouching low and wearing flat shoes.
Seriously, unless you are of circus giantess height, you shouldn’t let being tall stop you from dating whoever you choose. In addition to Tom Cruise’s several wives, movie legend Mickey Rooney, at five-foot one, was married to at least seven women who all were much taller than he could be, even when he wore his elevator shoes. A Rooney wife was Ava Gardner, one of the most sexy movie stars in Hollywood history. In other words, get some reverse vibes from Rooney’s attitude, and don’t ever let your height cause you embarrassment or intimidate you in your dating schedule.
When in a group situation where people are mingling for the usual purpose … making connections … like everyone else, you’ll tend to be drawn to people of your own kind. That’s OK if you can make a good tall-to-iall match-up, but also give yourself some room to consider the shorter guys. They can be as much fun as the Abe Lincolns, Michael Jordans and Wilt Chamberlains.
After all, not only Tom and Mickey are short, but many of the most famous and successful men in history were little guys. There’s Napoleon, John Adams, Harry Truman, Rudolph Valentino, Sammy Davis and, of course, Little Richard, the Seven Dwarves and General Tom Thumb.
