Many people have a strong height preference in the people they date. But is it possible that your ruler is what keeping you from finding love?
I have worked with clients who have refused to date a man or woman unless they meet their minimum height range. Somewhere along their dating history, these clients have determined that they are just not attracted to someone of a certain height.
Do you really know what you are doing when you reject someone because they don't measure up in height? In other words you are saying, "He's super-funny, nice, kind, has an interesting job and treats me with respect -- but he's too short."
Being open-minded is very important when dating. You may go out with someone who meets your height requirements but isn't a good match for you in all the other ways. If you are open minded, you may meet someone who shorter than your dream guy or taller than your ideal gal, but is smart, successful, funny and compatible with you in other important areas.
Wouldn't that be worth a trip outside of your comfort zone?
