So the question is should tall women wear high heels on a date? That means tall women will add another two or three, possibly four inches by wearing high heels on a date? Well, here are some points to consider:

How much shorter are you than your date?

The great thing about TallSingles.co.uk is that you can see the height of your date. If he is only an inch or so taller than you, then there is a good chance that wearing heels will make you taller.This could intimate him and make him self-conscious which might not be such a good thing, especially on a first date! Perhaps it’s something that you should consider on a third or fourth. Of

This could intimate him and make him self-conscious which might not be such a good thing, especially on a first date! Perhaps it’s something that you should consider on a third or fourth.Of

Of course, if you are taller than him without the heels, adding a pair of heels will make you taller still. Should this be such a problem? Well it will make the difference that much more noticeable so it could be an issue, however, he is already aware that you are taller without heels.

Do you wear heels all the time?

If you are comfortable in heels i.e. you wear them to work every day or you are out most evenings in them, then you probably should wear heels as they are natural to you.When you date someone you never want to change who you are and if heels make who you are then stuck with them!

Do you want to look glamorous?

As stylist and fashionista Jay Manuel says “Everyone can look like a supermodel with a bootleg trouser and a high heel” (it does quite ring true if you say ‘ballet flat’ instead of ‘high heel’, does it?).Heels make

Heels make women appear leaner and slimmer. They give you the best walk which just can’t be replicated in flats. They give you better legs, slimmer ankles, accentuate the best of your figure and make your feet look smaller.

Finally and most importantly they are glamorous and somehow that changes how you feel and behave. When was the last time you read the words “fabulous flat pump”? Exactly.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I think it comes down to how comfortable you are going to feel on a night out with or without heels on. In the early stages, you should probably air on the side of caution and so wear a small heel. Then bring out the platforms on the fourth or fifth date!

Ideas for the first and second dates

Ideas for the First and second dates, love, red lettering
Love

The team here at Tallsingles.co.uk can feel that love is most definitely in the air. Here are our best ideas for the First and second dates.  Something not too formal and not too pushy!

First date

We think this should be kept short, since it’s the first time you have met face to face and let’s be honest the spark just might not be there, so here are a few suggestions:

Meet at a Coffeehouse

Coffeehouses such as Costa, Starbucks and Nero are ideal places to meet for a first date. You could meet one lunchtime if you work close to one another, or if you’re not so close on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Also, consider trying coffee areas in large department stores, for example, the John Lewis in Sloane Square, London has a fantastic coffee house on the top floor.

Go for brunch

Why not suggest brunch instead of dinner?

A weekend brunch has a much more casual, easy-going vibe, means you’ve still got the rest of the day ahead of you afterwards, and can go on for as long as you want it to, depending on how much chemistry it turns out you have together.

Go for a drink after work or on a Sunday afternoon

Meet for a drink after work or on a Sunday afternoon. Make sure the bar is not too busy but has some atmosphere.

It might be good to go somewhere that you have been to before, rather than hoping that it is just like the pictures show it on the internet. Try and make sure you both know it’s only a drink, to see if there is some spark.. you don’t really want to make it dinner as well on the first date unless of course, it is going exceptionally well.

Also, you’re both going to be tall, so definitely avoid somewhere with low ceilings!

Play ping pong, table football or American pool

Having a distraction takes the pressure away from one on one conversation so you will find it much easier to relax straight away.

The date might also be impressed that you have suggested a good alternative to a regular drink in a bar/pub, so go on give it a go, you have nothing to lose!

The team at tallsingles.co.uk love giving a helping hand, so here are our favourite venues in London that offer this:
Ping pong at bounce
Table football at bar kick
American pool at the hurricane rooms

Second date

So once you know there might be something there you can move on to a second date. Here are Tallsingles.co.uk ideas for a second date:

Dinner

Make sure you know the restaurant, you want somewhere that is fairly busy but not too noisy.

Somewhere intimate would be good so you are not bothered by other people in the restaurant. Also, you’re both going to be tall, so definitely avoid somewhere with low ceilings!

Drink then cinema

This is another common second date idea. Have a drink in a cosy intimate bar and then go on to the cinema, you get time to chat in the bar beforehand and after the film, you can catch up on what you thought about it.

Be careful on the choice of the film!

Common interest

If you both have a common interest why not try and spend some time learning how to improve or add to existing skills. For example, if you’re both into cooking, Jamie Oliver does some great cooking courses which would be ideal for a second date, click here for more. Or if you’re both into cocktails why not try a cocktail making

Or if you’re both into cocktails why not try a cocktail making experience.

Go Bowling

Bowling is great fun and a good laugh, the two of you can have a beer or share some fries while engaging in a friendly competition (do not show a real competitive side!).

A hearty amount of guaranteed background noise to your date means there’s less pressure for either of you to have to think of a couple of hours’ worth of non-stop interesting things to say about a candle-lit dinner would.

It’s a low-stress environment so your date will feel relaxed and comfortable, which is important. If she’s comfortable, she’ll have more fun, and if she’s having fun, you’ll get a third date.

Try our top venue All Star Lanes

Go for a walk

Exploring the great outdoors and getting some physical activity is a terrific second date idea, though it’s not for everyone.Find out how

Find out how outdoorsy your date is, and find a route accordingly, whether they’re super-active and up for a hike, or would prefer a casual summer stroll through picturesque fields.

If you don’t know their fitness level, keep on the side of caution and choose a route that’s not too strenuous. The great thing about this date is that it’s perfect conversation opportunity, giving you quiet, private space to get to know each other. And thankfully costs nothing, avoiding any bill-splitting debates.

Check the weather forecast first (you don’t want to make your date trudge through the rain) and make sure they know what you have planned for this one, to avoid any potentially ultra-embarrassing outfit problems — high heels and even the calmest of fields just don’t mix.

Play tourist

The UK has some great attractions, why not visit them and enjoy going to somewhere you have never been to before.

London is awash with great places to visit, the natural history museum, the London Aquarium, the London eye etc. So go on try something new together.

Stand-up comedy

The tried-and-tested ultimate key to your date’s heart is not an expensive meal or a bunch of flowers upon arrival. It’s all about making them laugh.Laughing together is the absolute best thing can happen on a date —

Laughing together is the absolute best thing can happen on a date — so make that task infinitely easier by taking your date to see some live comedy. We’re not talking big arena shows here, either.Every town has indie

Every town has indie stand-up nights every week, be it at a comedy club or in a pub. Enjoy some drinks at the same time and get ready for a date about as fun as they come.

Play ping pong, table football or American pool

Same applies to the first date suggestion above.

So that’s our round-up of ideas for the First and second dates.  If you have any other suggestions it would be great to include them so others can benefit.
