A stunning 6-foot-4 woman has found that she is swamped with DMs from men asking to "climb" them – while insisting that smaller men are better lovers.
Emerald Van Langen, a 32-year-old nutritionist and model from Toronto, Canada, admitted that dating was difficult due to her size, but that didn't stop her from finding love or admirers online.
"I've been with my husband for eleven years now, and he's five feet ten inches tall. Before we met, I didn't have much of an appointment, but I only made appointments with smaller men – six feet two and under – than me that did, ”she explained.

Emerald proudly shows her size in the photos she shares on her Instagram page, although she admitted that sometimes it gets unwanted attention.

When she was growing up, Emerald had always hoped that she would be the size of her older sister, who is six feet three, and avoided coffee and soda after hearing the rumor that caffeine would slow her growth.
"When I was younger, I learned that caffeinated pop and smoking would slow you down," she said. "Smoking was not an issue in our house – nobody did it.
"I tried harder not to drink caffeine because I wanted to be bigger than my sister and it paid off," she added. "It is unknown whether this is due to genetics or my efforts."
In ninth grade at school, Emerald noticed that she was growing much faster than her friends.

Emerald grew six feet tall, four inches tall – and slapped her sister an inch – and learned to fully embrace her size, although some things are still difficult for her.
"Buying clothes has become easier now that I know which stores sell longer sizes," she said. “When I went shopping for wedding dresses, a seamstress had to drop the skirt to make it longer.

Strangers sometimes shout, "How tall are you?", Which bothers me. It's more decent to come and talk instead. "
