http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070409/od_nm/britain_text_dc [Broken]LONDON (Reuters) - A British man has met and married a 22-year-old woman after, by his own account, dreaming of her phone number and then sending her a text message.
David Brown, 24, says he woke up one morning after a night out with friends with a telephone number constantly running through his head. He decided to contact it, sending a message saying "Did I meet you last night?."
Random recipient Michelle Kitson was confused and wary at first but decided to reply and the two began exchanging messages. Eventually they met and fell in love.

After a long courtship, the oddly matched couple -- he's six foot seven inches tall and she's five foot four -- . . .
Attraction can be a subtle thing so I won't try to define it, but if given the choice between meeting two women that I'm already attracted to, one taller than me and the other shorter, I'd want to meet the taller one. There's something more exciting in that first face-to-face meeting with a taller woman. I don't know if it's that there's some unconscious perception that the taller woman is more of a challenge, or what. But there's definitely more spring in my step when approaching a tall woman for the first time.
I do think that tall women, generally speaking, are more elegant. And elegance happens to be very attractive to me.
Or maybe it's just the novelty of it.
Or maybe it's transference. Many years ago I fell for a woman who was about one inch taller than me. I can still remember being nose to nose with her for the first time and having to look UP into her eyes. Oh my, how divine is the dance of love!
If the woman is self-confident, mature, and honest with herself, it will not matter to her if her mate/companion is taller or shorter. Most of my GFs from HS to college were taller than me because I am a short guy (a little over 5'6" now and was about 5'4" when I hit college). My best buddy my freshman year was a lovely 5'10" lady and we were inseparable. It never turned into a flaming earth-scorching relationship, but it certainly was serious enough that we would hug and kiss whenever we met on campus and neither she or I ever allowed anybody of the opposite sex to hit on us when we were together. Guys in my dorm would say really off-the-wall stuff about why she might want to spend all her free time with me. I'd tell them the truth (we shared interests and were comfortable with one another and respectful and supportive of one another) and they would ignore all that and concentrate on "scoring" with the babes. Idiots.But how does the woman feel?
But how does the woman feel?
To be honest, I think my long-lost-love would have preferred a man taller than me, that is to say, taller than her, because her father was very tall. I'm 5'11" and she was (presumably still is) maybe a fraction over six feet. Her father was about 6'4" or 5".
Why was she your lost love? Did she leave you for a taller man?
