183

Today, I had a date with a guy from the Internet. I'm 6ft1, which tends to put potential dates off, so I'd slyly knocked a few inches off my description. Turns out he'd done the same. He'd added a whole foot to his height. I had to crouch to talk to him. FML

Speaking as a tall guy, I sympathize with girls who are annoyed with short girls that date tall guys. Leave me for a lady with legs!

If only people could feel confident enough as to not lie. Unfortunately society has drawn us a picture of what a beautiful man and woman look like, so people try to conform to this.

#62, I'm 5'9", and you wouldn't believe how many guys have told me I'm "pretty, but it's a shame you're so tall." or that "I would have dated you if you were shorter". :/ It's one rule for models and another for the rest of us, I'm afraid. OP should look into modelling, though, at 6'1" I bet they'd fucking love her.

95 - I think it's more of the fact it's kind of weird for a guy dating a girl taller then him. ...Luckily, god blessed me with height... Bitches...

I am a 5"5 girl but I've always wished I was taller by a few inches. Id love to have those long legs but #95s comment has made me wonder is it really not so great being tall?

155- I'm 5'11 and it's really not great being tall. All my friends are shorter than me which makes me feel like a giant. And not being able to wear heels is the worst part. And finding long jeans -_- the hardest. So be thankful for your height. Cause I'd do anything to be your height.

People should feel that they gotta lie. And what was the guy thinking adding a foot ? Like you aren't going to notice he is 12inches shorter than he is supposed to be. I don't see why you being 6'1" is a bad thing i love tall women!

84) well it does work sometimes but complaining about it is senseless, it's the Internet there are more lies than truth on most dating sites nowadays and complaining wont do a thing about it, next time be honest too op.

"Your talking" can be correct when "talking" is used as a gerund (noun) rather than a verb. In short, quit correcting grammar in instances where the point got across. Even those who understand grammar think that you're annoying when you do this.

The grammar nazis are starting to annoy me I mean really who cares that I left all the appropriate punctuation marks out of this comment get over it uh oh the ocd is kicking in must resist urge to punctuate

#63 - But that use of talking doesn't really make sense in this context, so it's either incorrect or illogical. To be honest, I'd rather have to deal with people repeatedly correcting others than deal with people repeatedly making the same basic mistakes...

Tall guys love tall girls but there aren't many tall guys out there. And like spazz said, some like short girls. So it leaves us tall girls looking for a while :-/

I'm actually not. But perhaps I did go overboard. Mia culpa. Failed joke, but I'll probably still get thumbed down for this comment as well.

86- I can attest to that. (sorry guys, but it's true) Maybe it's a little different for me, because I'm only 5'2". but I dated a guy that was shorter than me once and it just didn't feel right. ..He was wearing boots when we met. Lol

Normally when faced with this dilemma, dating a tall girl can be a turn off, especially at 5'6" and with a 6'1" it's hard to walk around holding hands. However, with the height difference eye level is roughly right around breast area and thats always a good thing.

YDI Op. Regardless of how overused/obvious it is, honesty is the best policy. And unless you are trying to lure in innocent victims there is no reason to lie. The guy you meet is going to see how you really look anyways. 6ft1 is very tall for a girl, but one of my friends is 6ft3 and with her confidence she never has trouble finding guys. You don't need someone to validate that you're beautiful or fine the way you are.

I'm a bit short on time so I may not be thinking it through, but this looks like a tall story to me. Also, aren't you kind of a hypocrite? I get that a whole foot is a pretty outrageous lie, but you seem to be put off by his small stature, just as many men are with your height.
