I am 5′ 8′ and with heels that usually makes me about 5’11. Thats pretty close to 6′. There was a time in my life where I thought I was of average height, but since dating, I realize I’m actually above average. Especially when it comes to the height of the men I prefer.
Like most women, I want to feel petite next to man, don’t want my ass to be twice the size and sure don’t want to feel like an amazon next to him that’s for sure. There’s nothing better than a tall hunky man that holds his arms around you that makes you feel safe and protected. So typically I am attracted to a man 6′ and over.
I think women that are about 5’5" have it pretty good. They can feel comfortable dating a man who is let’s say 5’9" without a problem. I did a little research, on Wiki Answers, the average height for a man in the US is 5′ 10". Which means half are taller and half are shorter.
I have been happily proven wrong. The other night I went to a friends birthday party in Venice. I only knew the birthday girl. Which meant, I was walking into the party where I only knew the one person that would have time to spend 10 minutes with everyone the whole night. Thats okay. Its good for me to conquer my insecurities.
As I shyly walked through the gates into the courtyard of the house, I saw my friend. As I was walking towards her I scanned the party and to my surprise saw about 10 or so tall men I was attracted to. Wow. Jackpot! I proceeded to meet her two very cool girlfriends and had quite a bit of fun with them, when three guys approached our table. They all were quite handsome, but I immediately hit it off with one of them. The chemistry between us was off the charts. Guess what…he was about 5’9". But you know, it didn’t make a difference to me, surprisingly, because his personality was so big and amazing I barely even noticed.
I stayed an extra 2 hours or so when I was suppose to be at another party because I was so enjoying his company. No specifics here, but the night ended with him getting my phone number and a fantastic kiss. (note: if you haven’t read my July 24th post: "What can a Kiss Tell?" make sure to read it now…)
