Huff Po – Sorry ladies, the world’s tallest man is officially off the market. At 8 feet 3 inches, 30-year-old Sultan Kosen has the high honor of being the world’s tallest man. And on Sunday, his 5-foot-9 girlfriend, Merve Dibo, offered him her (much smaller) hand in marriage, at a wedding ceremony held in Mardin, Turkey. “I found the love of my life,” the 21-year-old Dibo said to Turkey’s state-run news agency, Anatolia. “I hope this happiness would last forever and ever.” And that quote is even more romantic when you consider Kosen’s search for love. In 2009, after officially earning the crown of “world’s tallest man” Kosen told Guinness World Records he hoped the title would help him fall in love. “It’s really difficult to find a girlfriend. They are usually scared of me,” he explained. “Hopefully now that I’m famous I’ll be able to meet lots of girls. My dream is to be married.” Apparently dreams do come true. Per the Agence France-Presse, Kosen’s wedding suit had to be custom made out of nearly 20 feet of fabric. His shoes also required special effort, reports Metro News.
Sultan Kosen, you did it, you dog! Last time we heard from Sultan was 2009 – “Up until now it’s been really difficult to find a girlfriend,” Kosen said through an interpreter. “I’ve never had one, they were usually scared of me. … Hopefully now that I’m famous I’ll be able to meet lots of girls. I’d like to get married.” All that dude wanted was some pussy. I’m sure when you’re 30 feet tall chicks aren’t exactly swooning. You reach a tipping point with height where it starts to really work against you. 6 foot 5, you’re slaying pussy left and right. 6 foot 10 and you’re not an NBA superstar? You’re probably a social outcast. 8 foot 3? Forget about it. Not only are chicks afraid of you because you’re a misfit, they’re probably terrified of the hammer between your legs. You just know that a dude who’s 8 foot 3 has an enormous misshapen cock.
But it looks like after like 5 years, Sultan found his woman. 5 foot 9 and just loves his 8 foot tall goofy ass. Maybe she’s just some fame chaser who wants to be married to the Worlds Tallest Man. Maybe she just genuinely loves the guy. But in either case, his dream came true. He’s probably gonna die like any second so I’m just happy he’s getting laid before he kicks the bucket.
PS – Barstool Would You Rather time – Would you rather be the World’s Tallest Man or the Worlds Shortest Man?
