While a lot of men don't want someone taller, they like the idea of a tall woman." Joey Maestas, 23, a digital journalist at , is 6-foot-1.

Some said they would only choose the shortest of the bunch if they learned the taller men were murders or child molesters.
My phone gave a satisfying bing as a new message from Ok Cupid.com, the ubiquitous free online dating site, popped onto the screen: "Lime Green Robot is checking you out!
" Apparently Lime Green Robot liked what he saw, and sent me a message asking an important question to consider before even contemplating a first date: "Who is your favorite superhero?
I like Captain Planet." He claimed to be college educated, appeared to be attractive, used correct grammar, and had acceptable taste in music -- everything I usually require from an online suitor before I respond.
"I personally think dating taller girls is a lot of fun.
I love the look people give you when you walk into the room with a really beautiful 6-foot-6 girl," Maestas said, though he admitted, "It gets a little awkward when it comes to kissing, especially when you're at a formal event and she is wearing heels."
