A woman says she is undatable because of her statuesque figure that makes her tower over most men.
28-year-old Marie Temara of Palm Beach, Florida, is a 6-foot-2-inch lady who has been battling stigmas around tall women her whole life.
As the young beauty revealed, she was bullied for her height in the past, whereas she now struggles to find a man who wouldn’t see her height as an issue.
She also says she is now on a mission to prove to her critics that she can be both tall and feminine and that her height doesn’t say anything about her character or nature.
“I will admit it is extremely difficult to find a guy taller than me. Dating at my height is almost impossible because it is so limited,” Marie says.
“One guy I went on a date with said he was 6’5” on his online dating profile, but when I met up with him he was at most 5’11. I’ve been told ‘no one likes tall girls,’ I look like a ‘man in heels,’ I’m ‘too heavy to be a girl’ and that ‘the Giants are looking for a linebacker.’”
She continued: “I would never wear heels and would slouch in public. I’d do anything to make myself appear shorter to fit in. However, recently I have started dating shorter guys, and now that I’m open to dating at any height, it is much easier to date.
“But sometimes it’s still difficult to find a guy that is okay with me being taller than him. I hope to change the dating stigma that ‘men have to be the taller ones in the relationship’ because height shouldn’t matter. I don’t mind being a foot taller or two taller than any man.”
Marie also admitted that her height is nothing unusual in her family and that she is the shortest member of her immediate family.
While her mom and dad reach 6’5 and 6’3 respectively, her brothers measure a whopping 6’9 and 6’10.
“Pants are never long enough and I can never find my shoe size, which is a men’s size 12. I have to custom order all of my clothes and shoes, which can get very expensive and time-consuming,” Marie explained.
“Plus, most are made for average size people, so day-to-day things can be a bit more challenging for me such as cars, planes, rollercoasters, doorways, shower heads, toilets, beds, and other household appliances are almost always too small for me.”
Despite struggling to accept her looks for some time, Marie now fully embraced her curves and her towering figure as she admitted she also receives plenty of positive comments from her fans.
