I can't speak for all the gals, but I've ended up dating men shorter than me my whole life. Frankly, I'm tired of it. I want to be able to stretch myself up for a kiss or at least look a man in the eyes without having to bend my head. So I'm in here for the tall guys, lol. But then, at 6'2", you qualify! grin
I wish there were more men like you out in the world! I always seem to find tall guys who like short women, or short guys who adore me! I'm about 5'11", so I am usually a few inches taller than most guys I see! I'm here to meet a guy who is comfortable with my height and his own, but I usually prefer a guy who is a little taller than me.
I have dated men a foot shorter than I, or about the same height. It really doesn't matter to me. What matters is that, in my experience, with a runt I am limited to the affection I get. My current runt won't let me sit in his lap or cuddle or hold hands in public or even let on that we're together in public. Just once I would like to be held or picked up or cradled or "ride the pony" or be completely enveloped in someone's arms and legs. Apparently, with a runt, it is too much to ask. And I'm only 5'10"!
It does look like most of these ladies are interested in even taller guys unfortunately for us. Although I wouldn't call you short at 6'2" heh, if there's an average you're well above it, by about 4 inches I'd say...
The irony here is when you compare this site to the regular dating sites and find out even the shorter women are looking for guys well above average! So I just gave up and joined here thinking a taller female would be more understanding. Needless to say they would also have longer legs which is always a bonus =)
Ok... so I'm starting to realize, on here, I'm pretty short... or average tall... (woot) but my philosophy on the matter is that if a guy is not going to discriminate against me for my differences (namely my hieght) then I won't condemn him for his either. If he's shorter than me but he still likes me, then I'll give him a fair chance, just as I would anyone else
I wouldn't say height is a matter but i wouldn't date a guy under 5"10 as im nearly 6"4 and don't want people to think i'm with my little brother...lol but i have never dated a guy as 6"3 or above before so its short guys for me unless i move to america...lol.
You aren't wasting your time unless you feel you are wasting your time. First I'm sure you are taller than many women on this site, and 6'2" is taller than the average male anyway, so you are tall. Now granted many of the women on this site may also be taller than the average male but hey some people are just not meant to be average. As for me, I've gone out with guys shorter than me and taller than me. There is definitely such a thing for me as too short and may even be someone who would be too tall but I doubt I'm likely to meet that person, as I don't spend a lot of time with NBA centers. You're an attractive guy, I've got to believe there are probably many women on this site who would love to hear from you. Best of luck finding that special someone.
