Lifestyle: www.Tall.Singles

December 4th, 2015

 

Tiptoe 2

 

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.

-Jenni

Thoughts on being an intern?

I was so honored to be an intern for TEAL Apparel. I learned a lot in from a short period of time. I never knew how hard it is to own a small online business. You need to use any possible connections to support your own business and put in a lot of time. Owning a small online business is like taking care of a baby. You need to keep an eye on it 24/7. It was a wonderful experience to be TEAL Apparel’s intern and it was an experience that I won’t ever forget.

What did you expect?

I did not know what to expect when I first started the internship.  I thought it would just be sitting behind the computer and doing research about the tall men’s market. It was much more than I thought. Jenni asked me what I wanted to learn and get out from this internship. I told her that I am more of a hands on person. Next day, she changed the entire schedule and let me do more hands on tasks including trips to the factory. I did not expect that she would listen to me because I was just an intern. After that day, I did not feel like an intern anymore. I felt like I was working with her as an employee and she listened to my opinions.

Best part of the internship?

Best part of this internship was the knowledge that I gained from her. It wasn’t just about how to run a small business, but also about everything outside of that. She taught me how to calm myself and write everything down that is in my head. All of the lessons are invaluable.

What surprised you the most?

I was surprised at how much I learned during this short period of time about business and life. I am glad that I had the chance to work with Jenni. She is an awesome person. Thank you very much.

mack weldon undershirtTuck in. Head out. 

 

Searching for that perfect, just long enough undershirt? Around here those undershirts were a myth. Until now… TEAL customer and tall clothing connoisseur, Curt, turned us on to the perfect V-neck undershirt. In his words they are: Awesome.  Double stitching, made in USA, soft pima cotton, fitted body and they run very long.  And, we agree!

If you’re concealing midriff undershirts below your button downs, check out Mack Weldon and see if you agree.

Your thoughts on being an intern…

Being an intern at TEAL was an amazing experience. My last two quarters were hectic, but I loved being able to do some serious work outside of school. 

What did you expect…

I did not know what to expect because it was my first internship. I assumed I would be doing some work off to the side and less hands on work as most students predict. I was put to work doing what I loved, what I knew and new things I had no idea I could do.

Best part of the internship…

I learned things about myself and what I can contribute to the business and fashion world. I was able to see factories, learn more about what goes into running a small business, which was perfect for me. Best part was feeling wanted and heard every time I went to work. I did not feel like an intern but someone who was part of something great.

What surprised you the most…

Not being a long & tall man, I was surprised at how needed TEAL is for this niche market!

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.
