I have had something weighing heavy on my heart for a while and I think the most cathartic way to address this is with an open letter on my blog. I thought to ensure I don't waffle on and get straight to the point I will present my dilemma in bulletpoint format, so here goes....
I am 5'10.5 (don't forget the half!).
The average man in the UK is 5'8.
Tall women naturally prefer taller men because it is rare for them to feel small and protected.
Short(er) women also like to date tall men and often won't date men under 6 foot, despite the fact that the average man is often taller than them.
=Dilemma: A shortage of tall men
Solution: Not everyone can date tall guys!
Shorter ladies, I think the solution is now clear to all. I knew you would understand, thank you for your co-operation and for taking one for the team.
Ahhh, feel better now I've cleared that up and got that off my chest.
My therapist will be so proud!
