As a woman who is 6 feet tall I appreciate you writing this. Needless to say, I have never in my life dated someone who was 6 inches taller than me. My husband is 6'3" but that isn’t why I started dating him. If I’d waited to only date guys my height or taller, I would have never dated much at all. All these weird “rules” and “boxes” that have been cooked up just get in the way of letting people be people.
