World's Tallest Model Struggles To Meet Men As They're Put Off By Her Size

World's Tallest Model Struggles To Meet Men As They're Put Off By Her Size

A woman who holds the Guinness World Record for being the world's tallest model has opened up about how her height impacts her romantic relationships.

Ekaterina Lisina, from Russia, was awarded the title of Tallest Professional Model in 2017, when she was confirmed to stand at 6 feet, 8.77 inches tall (205.16cm).

Her legs alone are more than 4' 3" (132cm) long, and while many people see being tall or having long legs as a desirable trait, Lisina said her height has caused issues when it comes to finding partners.


Speaking to Alexis Texas on her podcast Private Talks, Lisina said, "You know those problems, when you like a boy but he’s much shorter, or you like a tall boy but he doesn't want to be with you because you are too tall for him."

The Russian model has made clear that she's not determined to find someone her own height, or even taller, to date, and said she would date anyone with a height 'limit' of 5' 7".

When asked if she'd ever been involved with anyone shorter than that, Lisina responded: "No, I think it’s already really low for me. The difference is over one foot; a lot of girls can’t even handle a couple of centimetres’ difference and this is one foot.”

Lisina admitted to having felt 'anxious' when she realised she may take after her tall parents, saying she was 'afraid because [she knows] how kids and people generally react to height, and it’s not good'.


According to the Guinness World Records, Lisina's brother measures 6' 6", her father is 6' 5" and her mother is 6' 1".

Still, she stress 'height shouldn't matter' in a relationship, saying 'it shouldn't be the most important thing'. A partner should, however, 'definitely care' about her, Lisina said, while also revealing that she would like someone who gave her his attention and offers 'support financially if he can'.

"But I think the most important thing is chemistry, and a spiritual connection… If there is no spiritual connection and even if you like how the person looks it is not going to work anyway," Lisina explained.


The model moved from Russia to LA and admitted she struggled to meet people due to the fact she is 'not a party person' or a 'person who likes to go out', so she turned to dating apps to try and find potential partners.
