Attention to all tall women: You have more fans than you might think! End the slouching and avoiding high heels — I interviewed three men who LOVE tall women — and I don’t just mean 5-8 or 5-9, but over six feet tall! These three men represent only a fraction of the many men out there who think tall women are goddesses. So to all tall women who have a habit of letting self-consciousness or people’s dumb comments and questions ruin your life: These three men find tall women very attractive.
What tall women must realize is that not all men prefer “the short gals,” and not all men, who like tall women, are super tall men themselves. Also, not all men who like tall women are short men, which is another stereotype directed at men who prefer tall women. There is nothing wrong with the men who love tall ladies. In fact, I’d say there’s something very right about such men! I’m 5-8 and I’d be lying if I said I never worried that my ideal man has crossed paths with me but looked straight past me because I wasn’t tall enough for him!
Here are the men
Jim McClure, 6-3, 47, publicist/writer from Arlington Heights, IL
Jim’s preferred height range for women is 5-6 to 6-1.
Jim says: “I do like the idea of them wearing high heels, not so much from the style aspect, but that it speaks to a woman’s confidence and comfort with the way God made her. I like women tall because it is much easier to look them in the eye. From both a friendship and a romantic perspective, that means a lot. Eyes are often what attract people; why have to strain yourself looking at or for them? Although close dancing is a lost art, the idea of dating someone taller who is at or near your height is attractive too. Much easier to communicate and easier on the back in the dance hall!”
Michael Luchies, 6-0, 23, Content Producer from Peoria, IL
Michael prefers them to be 5-9 to 6-4.
Michael says: “I like a long athletic build, and nice long legs. It does not bother me at all if a woman is taller than me. It would not be a turnoff and I would not be embarrassed to be anywhere with her, even if people were looking.
“Men who are ‘intimidated’ by taller women are missing out on some great women. You can’t be discriminatory against women who are taller than you are. This is the same as any discrimination. I would not ‘not’ give a girl a chance who is skinny, thick, short, tall, red, green, etc. 6’4 is not a ceiling; depending on her personality and morals, I would consider a woman at any height. If she was taller than me, I would prefer her not to wear high heels.”
Jim Clayton, 5-10, 51, Content Producer from Richmond, VA
Jim says: “While happily married now, I was on the ‘market’ for a number of years between marriages. I loved women up to about 6′ or so. I loved the classic ‘Rubenesque’ woman. Tall women spread the curviness over a broader area. More to love. I’ve always felt that taller women carried off the curvy thing in a more appealing way.
“I like ’em to be proportional. I think a nice size 16, perhaps an 18, if properly proportioned, is exceptionally attractive, and for that to be successfully carried off, it requires a lot of woman, hence the taller ones pull it off better.
“In college I dated a girl for almost five years. She was 5’9″ and about 210, but every single pound was in the right place – all boobs, thighs and butt. She was the epitome of curvy and proportional.”
