Over 6 feet dating

The average woman is eight percent shorter than her male partner.

Too many deal-breakers makes you seem judgmental, narrow-minded, and bitter.

Instead, strike an upbeat tone and focus on what you do like — in life and in a potential mate. If you’re dashing off the same generic introduction to everyone who catches your eye, you’re much less likely to get a response than if you tailor your note to each person you want to date.

Also, long-winded messages tend to get fewer responses than brief ones. People who use a lot of text message shortcuts get fewer responses than online daters who use normal spelling.

Exceptions to this rule are “haha” and “lol” which potential dates do like, possibly because they suggest a sense of humor.

Have a trusted friend read both your profile and some of the messages you’ve sent that garnered no replies; a close pal will tell you if you’re coming off as desperate or weird.

The first question most strangers ask me is "How tall are you? In one survey, about half of collegiate men required their date to be shorter, while a monstrous nine of every ten women said they would only date a taller man.

" If I'm feeling charitable, I answer honestly: "6-foot-2." They often follow-up with, "Do you ever date shorter men? And online, it's even more brutal: Women can calculate how tall they are in their highest heels, add a few inches for good measure, and then filter out men who fall below that sum.

If you’re a woman and you don’t look a little flirtatious, you’re limiting the guys who’ll want to contact you.

If you’re a guy and you’re all dressed up, you’ll get fewer responses than a man in more casual attire.
