This question is aimed at guys with Aspergers who are over 6feet tall.

My question is has your tall stature helped you with getting dates or with attracting the opposite sex despite having autism? Possibly it might have opened the door to more opportunities to get laid or have a romantic relationship perhaps.

I'm 6 foot 2 and are somewhat taller than my partner.
She's commented how much she likes me being taller than her, although I'm not sure how much it contributes to overall attraction.

Maybe a higher percentage of tall males with Aspergers are married compared to the shorter ones?

I am 6'0" tall, and my pretty Asian wife is 5'4" tall.  People compliment us on our ballroom dancing skills.

I think being tall, for a man, is a very attractive trait, yes.

I think being tall equates to being more intimidating, if there is a confrontation with another male.
More protection for the female partner.
Very animalistic, but it is what it is. <shrug> 8)

It is the only socially accepted and celebrated form of discrimination in our century.

I kind of feel like you are using it as a bit of an excuse. I'm 6ft and have not had a gf since I was 16. It is pretty much down to how fun you are to talk to and then online maybe looks get you that initial conversation. Being tall is not one of the main reasons people get rejected.

I guess you mean being short.

If so then you're wrong, because it is.

Just because you're tall with no gf, doesn't make that shortness isn't a main reason of rejection for others.

It is a form of racism, I guess.

It's hard to define the term race. Both are just how your genes constructed you. What gives the term race to eye colour, skin colour, height, muscle build?

Would you say that more attractive women *tend* to have worse personalities? :scratch:

2 men with good personalities and similar looks.
One is tall.
One is short.

Who do you think has the advantage? :wink:

Even if both are short, both would be rejected by someone just because of that.
