Online Dating Experience 24
Short Men Can Have Dating Success

52 year old male from California

I just found your site today and could not help sharing my experience with dating online.

The first letter I read in the Dating Tips section was from a man who said he was of shorter stature and felt it limited him in meeting women online. I tell him and you that is not true at all. I am 5'3, 52, married to someone I met online five years ago. At the time I tried meeting people online I was 46, divorced, on disability, living in a trailer park, and going back to college. I really never gave my height much thought, and did not say unless asked. I put an ad in Classified 2000, which I think was through I posted my profile and a pic. Within two months I could not keep up with the 60+ women from all over the world who were e-mailing me. I had simply asked for a pen-pal and became overwhelmed at the response. Some women mentioned how they wanted a tall man, but that is so shallow. I was better off not knowing them. I eventually stayed in constant contact with one woman who was nice and we "clicked" (had common interests and looked at life the same). After eight months of online and phone contact, we married. We just had our five year anniversary, so you can find love on the Internet.

Now I met all kinds of people; some were nice, some were wacked, and some were just looking for that special someone. It was an adventure for sure. I still caution people to be careful whoever you are looking for, because bad people are out there looking too.

I would tell the guy with the "I'm Short Tag" to get over it. We can't grow anymore. The Rack is out, and most women don't even notice if you are shorter than them if you are sincere and honest. I mean I had nothing, but me to offer while this guy has job, money, probably status. But those do make you who you are inside where it counts. One thing about the Net is people can't physically see you, but they can figure out what and who you are as that is hard to hide if you talk for any length of time.
