During college, I was a student athlete on the crew team. At 5’9 I was on the short end of the spectrum. Many of my teammates were 5’10 – 6’+.  Finding an appropriately tall person to date was as easy as finding another student athlete.  The tall dating pool was built in.

However, after school, in my 20s I moved to a big city.  I had a few above average height friends (gals 6′ tall) and I noticed that tall mates seemed less available unless you were part of an athletic club (e.g. volleyball club, triathlete circuit) or just got lucky and worked with a tall person or tall people). It was challenging to find tall guys to date and it seemed like the most important criteria (aside from having a job and not being an axe murderer!!) was height. They needed to find someone that was taller than them.

With each generation getting taller finding a tall mate may become more of a challenge. www.tall.singles Founder, Richard Vickery, tells us why and how his tall dating site works. TallSingle.com started in the UK and is now in the US and it boasts 80 marriages. If height is a “must-have” quality for you then read on and find out how www.tall.singles weeds out the shorter mates. Let vertically enhanced love find you.

Q

Why a tall specific dating site?

When I got to that age where you start going to nightclubs and bars trying to find girlfriends I would always struggle to meet someone. Not becuase I was ugly (well I hope that wasn’t the reason!) but because I was tall. You see I had a growth spurt in my teenage years and in my late teens I was head and shoulders above everyone my age. So when I walked into a bar I was very often the tallest person of my age in there and the majority of the women my age were much shorter. This continued all the way throught my early 20’s. It made me think that I meeded to find a way to solve this problem. So one evening I searched for free domain names and realised tallsingles.co.uk was free, I bought it immediately and started a tall persons dating site.

 

Q

 

Do tall people have more difficulty finding a mate?

A

 

Well from my experience and the feedback I have had from other people, the answer would be yes! Women seems to want to date men who are taller than them, much of this is due to social pressure (it’s not often you see couples where the man is shorter) and some of it is to do with wanting to feel protected by a taller man. For tall men, it’s again the social pressure but also the fact that a really big height difference can feel awkward. Tall people get enough people stare at them when they walk along on their own, that is multiplied 10 times when they walk hand in hand with a partner who is much shorter.

Q

 

Are tall people considered more attractive which is why they can have their own site?

A

 

No I don’t think so. The idea of the site is to allow tall people to meet other tall people, in order to avoid the “difficult” situations that arise when tall people date much shorter people.

 

Q

How does your dating site work? Do you set up a profile, wink, go on dates, etc?

A

 

You can join our site for free initially, so you can see if it is of interest. You set up a profile, which includes a photo, some multiple choice questions which you answer about yourself and a small bio. Once that is done, you can then search for people you might want to date and send them a ‘wink’ (which is an easy way to say you like the look of them) or a message. If you want to arrange a date, you have to upgrade to paid membership.

 

Q

 

What is the cost to join your service?

A

 

Our business model is a subscription service. The costs are as follows, 6 month’s membership £79.95, 3 month’s membership £49.95 and 1 month membership – £24.95. We are up to 72% cheaper than one of the most popular dating sites match.com and of course we only have tall members on our site which is just what tall people want. I am happy to give your readers a 50% discount on a 1 month membership, all they need to do is enter code “50TALL” at checkout.

 

Q

How do you set yourself apart from your peers?

A

 

Two things set us apart from our peers. Firstly we are one of the only tall dating sites that restricts members by height, women have to be 5’5’’ and over, men 6’0’’ and over. Secndly we are building a tall community, to discuss tall issues, have a laught about all those things tall people are asked etc.

 

Q

Why did you start this business? Was it to find a relationship? Can you share other success stories?

A

 

I started the business in 2012: http://www.tallsingle.com/. As I mentioned above it was to solve a problem that I had encountered when I was younger. I would definitely use it to find a relationship, but when I created the site I was already in a relationship.

 

We have had over 80 marriages so I can happily share some success stories.  To be continued in a future post.

Tall Hotness Found!

November 17th, 2015

You Are The Bomb

 

family 6

 

Our Fall 2015 Campaign features the gorgeous, generous, game for anything Dow Family! We first met Tuffer earlier this year as a customer. Selling to an underserved niche market we generally have two types of customers: excited and passionate (read: super psyched!). 

 

family 8

 

Tuffer quickly revealed that he was in the latter camp. I recall having an in depth phone conversation with him about tall men’s clothing. We covered everything. One purchase turned into multiple purchases and start of a friendship.

 

family 4

 

What really sets Tuffer apart is his personality. He is smart funny and self-deprecating, just like TEAL Apparel! When we approached him about being the face of our next campaign he didn’t bat an eyelash.  He even recruited his wife and daughter.

 

family 3

 

Our shoot took place at the Dexter Southfield Boathouse on the Charles River.  The model, family and location were the perfect reflection of the TEAL Apparel Man.

Tuffer and Erin, we are so lucky to be able to shoot you all. Thank you for rolling with the punches, doing the heavy lifting, erging, sculling and being the best model family we could ever ask for! We are deeply grateful to have friends like you.

Thank god for underwear.  My 1 to 2 inch back up plan.

 

Keep plumbers butt from making an appearance. This might be a common rapper style, but this is a way of life for tall guys. Every day tall guys live on the edge of being a public flasher. Now you can stop pulling your pants down; TEAL Apparel helps raise you up and get you the fit you deserve.

Tall Adventures: How can we HELP you get to the Head of the Charles?

October 31st, 2013

HOTC 2013

  

The Head of the Charles Regatta is one of the greatest 2 day athletic events in the world and a favorite pastime for our family. Held in Boston MA on October 19th and 20th, over 300,000 people came to see world class rowers compete in a 3 mile long course.  If you ever wanted to see a land of giants, this event is certain to impress. Thousands of tall men and women, in the top 5% of the US population, come to compete and watch. Plus it’s a great place to meet up with college alumni and old rowing friends.

 

IMG_0295

 

I rowed on the University of Washington’s Women’s crew team in 1995 and was very fortunate to meet with Mike Callahan, Head Coach for the University of Washington’s Men’s crew team, and learned about transportation and the financial challenges that it takes to get the team and their boats across the cross country.  This got me about how we can help University of Washington and other crew teams pay for these extraordinary experiences.

 

Over 50% of every men’s crew roster on average is over 6 foot 3 inches which is in the tall slender demographic TEAL Apparel supports. I’d love to support Tall people and rowers and if TEAL Apparel can help your rowing program fundraise through private sales please do not hesitate to contact me. I want every rowing program to have the ability to send their team to the Head of the Charles each year.

 

HOTC promotion

 

In celebration of the Head of the Charles TEAL is offering a special promotion. Even if you missed us at the event you can still take advantage of the biggest discount we have ever offered: $75 off, use code: CHARLES, expires 11/15/13.

 

Warm Regards,

Jenni

Tall Adventures: Apple Picking with the Lalliers

October 17th, 2013

One of the best Fall activities is to go to a farm and pick apples. My family likes to try different farms so each experience is new and fresh. Each farm has its own charm and set of amusements for the kids including: hayrides, corn mazes, jumpy houses, pony rides and petting zoos.  The fruit picking is the main event and always sparks the kids gathering and picking skills while we fill our bellies with warm apple cider and crunchy, pillow-y cider donuts. This outing never disappoints and it is great family bonding time.

Here is a standard PICK YOUR OWN Fruit Calendar for most farms in the USA. This will help you strategize your next trip to the farm.

Here are a few of my family’s favorite apple farms in New England. We have been to all of them in the past year and have had so much fun. Enjoy!

Found: Tall Halloween Costumes Preview

October 11th, 2013

Halloween is a great holiday to celebrate being Long & Tall. It does not really matter which costume you wear because, you will stand out…literally. Historically, costumes for tall guys have not been creative or imaginative. Costume retailers typically have in stock a small number of options for the Tall guy (not a real surprise) and it’s usually the same genre like Frankenstein, Dracula, Mobster, Grim Reaper, or Zombie. The concept is if you are tall you are a thug or monster. This is definitely short sighted. I have found some fun, lovable characters that emphasize a fun side to being Tall!

 

Here are our Top 9 picks for this Halloween season:

 

Buddy Elf                                         Pope                           Gingerbread Man

Happy Halloween!

Found: Best Foliage Drives in America

October 3rd, 2013

fall foliage

 

Peak Foliage every autumn in America rivals any natural wonder in the world. The brightness of the multi-colored landscape is breathtaking. It’s hard to stay focused while driving because you just want to pull over and soak in nature’s brilliance.  The rich mixture of red, orange, yellow, and purple is a chemical reaction that takes place as the trees transition from summer to winter. Chlorophyll within the leaves (they make the leaves turn green) breaks down during autumn as the temperature and day length decrease resulting in a color change within the leaves.  What is interesting is that the intensity of the color is determined by the degree of temperature, light and water supply. In general low temperatures, overcast and rainy days increase the brightness of the fall colors.

This year will be my family’s second trip to the white mountains of New Hampshire. I know it will be incredible to marvel at the majestic array of color. But, you don’t need to travel to New England to see the foliage. Here is a list of top foliage drives throughout the USA. Get out and enjoy!
