Too intimidating girls
Aesthetically speaking, tallness is usually desired. Take comfort in that you have the 'model thing' going on.
I think if a guy doesn't like you because you are tall, you're better off without them.
I understand that a lot of guys that are shorter might be put off but she meant guys that are taller too - ie they want someone who is significantly shorter than them and/or guys just don't like tall girls. Most tall girls I know tend to wear flatter or slightly flatter shoes for that reason.
Do I need to find some basketball players or was my friend wrong? I'm not tall (just under 6ft) but definitely like tallish girls (also like short girls mind you) but in my experience, girls go for guys that are quite a bit taller than them so yes, I probably wouldn't even bother trying to talk to a girl who's 6ft or more, possibly even taller than 5ft10.
I haven't got a problem with tall women but I hate heels.
