The problems tall people have when finding love

by richard 26. March 2014 20:58

Being tall may have its perks, but it also comes with its problems. One of the main problems is the fact that it is very difficult to find love. Most short and average sized people tend to steer clear of those who taller. There are a number of reasons for this, and we are going to take a little look at them on this page.

One of the main reasons as to why people sign up to sites like www.tallsingles.co.uk (more on that soon) is the fact that height issues are posing a serious problem in their love life. It seems that women have it slightly worse when they are tall. Most men prefer shorter women, and women tend to prefer taller men. Obviously if the difference is absolutely huge then there will be a big problem. For the most part though, tall men should be fine.

At the moment, it seems as though it is almost a taboo for a tall woman to date a shorter man. I have read horror stories that the efforts that even the prettiest ladies out there need to go through in order to find a decent man to get into a relationship with. Most of the time it is because it is because they are far too tall. Most men seem to steer clear of woman that are higher than them. This is because height is traditionally seen as 'strength'. In the eyes of a few people, the taller you are, the stronger you are. Men do not want to be with a woman that towers over them. For most men it is embarrassing. This is why the majority of women tend to end up with men that around their height (i.e. men who are just as tall). The problem is, finding them is incredibly difficult. There are tall men out there, but it seems that all of the good ones have been snapped up, or you are just not looking in the right places. Trust me, it is harder to find a decent tall man than it is to find somebody that is 'average height'.

People also need to realize that expressing love is a lot more difficult with a height difference too. I don't know if you have ever tried kissing somebody that is considerably taller than you, but it is difficult. Not to mention the fact that making love to somebody with a considerable height difference is slightly more difficult (if your heads aren't in line, then that is not romantic at all). Most shorter people want to avoid situations like this. As a result, they avoid taller people.

As you can see, tall people have a lot of problems when it comes to finding love. We believe that they should not have these problems though. Tall people deserve love too! This is why we have founded www.tallsingles.co.uk. This dating site is dedicated to getting tall people the partner of their dreams. Why not check it out today? You will never have to worry about height issues again!

First and second date ideas

by richard 24. February 2014 20:33

The team here at Tallsingles.co.uk can feel that love in most definitely in the air. So we thought we would put together a list of ideas for your first and second dates


First date

We think this should be kept short, since it’s the first time you have met face to face and let’s be honest the spark just might not be there, so here are a few suggestions:

  • Meet at a Coffeehouse – coffeehouses such as Costa, Starbucks and Nero are idea places to meet for a first date.  You could meet one lunchtime if you work close to one another, or if you’re not so close on a lazy Sunday afternoon.  Also consider trying coffee areas in large department stores, for example the John Lewis in Sloane Square, London has a fantastic coffeehouse on the top floor.
  • Go for brunch – Why not suggest brunch instead of dinner? A weekend brunch has a much more casual, easy going vibe, means you've still got the rest of the day ahead of you afterwards, and can go on for as long as you want it to, depending on how much chemistry it turns out you have together.
  • Go for a drink after work or on a Sunday afternoon – meet for a drink after work or on a Sunday afternoon.  Make sure the bar is not too busy, but has some atmosphere.  It might be good to go somewhere that you have been to before, rather than hoping that it is just like the pictures show it on the internet.  Try and make sure you both know it’s only a drink, too see if there is some spark.. you don’t really want to make it dinner as well on the first date, unless of course it is going exceptionally well.  Also your both going to be tall, so definitely avoid somewhere with low ceilings!
  • Play ping pong, table football or American pool – Having a distraction takes the pressure away from one on one conversation, so you will find it much easier to relax straight away.  The date might also be impressed that you have suggested a good alternative to a regular drink in a bar/pub, so go on give it a go, you have nothing to lose! The team at tallsingles.co.uk love giving a helping hand, so here are our favourite venues in London that offer this:

Ping pong at bounce

Table football at bar kick

American pool at the hurricane rooms

Second date

So once you know there might be something there you can move on to a second date.  Here is Tallsingles.co.uk idea’s for a second date:

  • Dinner – make sure you know the restaurant, you want somewhere that is fairly busy but not too noisy.  Somewhere intimate would be good so you are not bothered by other people in the restaurant.  Also your both going to be tall, so definitely avoid somewhere with low ceilings!
  • Drink then cinema – This is another common second date idea.  Have a drink in a cosy intimate bar and then go on to the cinema, you get time to chat in the bar beforehand and after the film you can catch up on what you thought about it.  Be careful on the choice of film!
  • Common interest – If you both have a common interest why not try and spend some time learning how to improve or add to existing skills.  For example if you’re both into cooking, Jamie Oliver does some great cooking courses which would be ideal as a second date e.g Jamie Oliver Recipease.  Or if you’re both into cocktails why not try a cocktail making experience.
  • Go Bowling – Bowling is great fun and a good laugh, the two of you can have a beer or share some fries while engaging in a friendly competition (do not show a real competitive side!).  A hearty amount of guaranteed background noise to your date means there's less pressure for either of you to have to think of a couple of hours’ worth of non-stop interesting things to say, like a candle-lit dinner would.  It’s a low-stress environment, so your date will feel relaxed and comfortable, which is important.  If she’s comfortable, she’ll have more fun, and if she’s having fun, you’ll get a third date e.g. All Star Lanes.
  • Go for a walk - Exploring the great outdoors and getting some physical activity is a terrific second date idea, though it's not for everyone. Find out how outdoors-y your date is, and find a route accordingly, whether they're super-active and up for a hike, or would prefer a casual summer stroll through picturesque fields. If you don't know their fitness level, keep on the side of caution and choose a route that's not too strenuous. The great thing about this date is that it’s perfect conversation opportunity, giving you quiet, private space to get to know each other.  And thankfully costs nothing, avoiding any bill-splitting debates.  Check the weather forecast first (you don't want to make your date trudge through the rain) and make sure they know what you have planned for this one, to avoid any potentially ultra-embarrassing outfit problems -- high heels and even the calmest of fields just don't mix.
  • Play tourist – the UK has some great attractions, why not visit them and enjoy going to somewhere you have never been to before.  London is awash with great places to visit, the natural history museum, the London aquarium, the London eye etc.  So go on try something new together.
  • Stand-up comedy – The tried-and-tested ultimate key to your date's heart is not an expensive meal, or a bunch of flowers upon arrival. It’s all about making them laugh.  Laughing together is the absolute best thing can happen on a date -- so make that task infinitely easier by taking your date to see some live comedy.  We're not talking big arena shows here, either.  Every town has indie stand up nights every week, be it at a comedy club or in a pub.  Enjoy some drinks at the same time and get ready for a date about as fun as they come.
  • Play ping pong, table football or American pool – Same applies to the first date suggestion above.

If you have any other suggestions it would be great to include them so others can benefit.  Email the team at enquiry@tallsingles.co.uk and we will be happy to post them.

Thanks and here's to successful dating from the Tallsingles team!

Should Women Wear High Heels on a Date?

by richard 30. January 2014 17:39

So the question is should a tall women add another two or three, possibly four inches by wearing high heels on a date?  Well, here are some points to consider:

High heels on a date?

How much shorter are you than your date?

The great thing about TallSingles.co.uk is that you can see the height of your date.  If he is only an inch or so taller than you, then there is a good chance that wearing heels will make you taller.  This could intimate him and make him self-conscious which might not be such a good thing, especially on a first date!  Perhaps it’s something that you should consider on a third or fourth.  Of course if you are taller than him without the heels, adding a pair of heels will make you taller still.  Should this be such a problem?  Well it will make the difference that much more noticeable so it could be an issue, however he is already aware that you are taller without heels.

Do you wear heels all the time?

If you are comfortable in heels i.e. you wear them to work every day or you are out most evenings in them, then you probably should wear heels as they are natural to you.  When you date someone you never want to change who you are and if heels make who you are then stick with them!

Do you want to look glamorous?

As stylist and fashionista Jay Manuel says “Everyone can look like a supermodel with a bootleg trouser and a high heel” (it does quite ring true if you say ‘ballet flat’ instead of ‘high heel’, does it?).  Heels make a women appear leaner and slimmer. They give you the best walk which just can’t be replicated in flats.  They give you better legs, slimmer ankles, accentuate the best of your figure and make your feet look smaller. Finally and most importantly they are glamorous and somehow that changes how you feel and behave.  When was the last time you read the words “fabulous flat pump”? Exactly.


In conclusion I think it comes down to how comfortable you are going to feel on a night out with or without heels on.  In the early stages you should probably air on the side of caution and so wear a small heel.  Then bring out the platforms on the fourth or fifth date!
