Ask Babe: Ups and Downs


I am around 6′ tall and, as every girl should, I love a fantastic pair of heels. Finding a man that measures up is like finding needle in a haystack… or something to that effect. Is it okay to go shorter with my men? How short is too short?

Love you,



Dear LeBron James,

There is no debate on this subject. Thou shalt not be with a man who is shorter than thou in heels. Period. I’m sorry if this hard to swallow but you should look at the bright side. Being tall can be chic. Long legs are a god send and if you have the face for it, you could consider the runway.

I will say, I’m a bit scared by the first sentence of your email. What exactly do you mean you are “around 6′ tall”?  Are you like a Yeti or something? I have a sneaking suspicion you’re a lot taller than six feet from the way you’ve phrased that statement. If you’re over 6′ 3” then you should really be thinking about dating NBA players. If you’re over 6’6” then I can’t help you. No one can.

    Just wemt on 5th date with a guy so tall that I still have to look up at him with my 4 inch stilettos on. And I’m 5’7. Do recommend. Short men are silly.

    Short men are very versatile in bed and out of the bedroom (i.e. in the car etc).  It’s being with one that doesn’t mind you being a few inches taller than him in heels, that’s key.

    Sorry, but this is bullshit. If I’m comfortable and he’s confident enough to date me, there’s nothing wrong with dating a man shorter than me. I am almost 6’3″ and more often than not men that are shorter than me make me feel more desired than the men my height that are too insecure in their manhood to feel like a man when they’re with me. I HAVE done runway and am NOT a yetti (thanks for being so ridiculously insulting), and I am appreciate confidence in a man more than their height.
