Dating a man who is shorter

He really liked her back, and it was obvious that they would make a great couple. A few months later, she was still in love with him, and she realized she made a big mistake, but at that point, it was too late. The reason I’m telling you that is because you’re not the first girl to bring up a height issue like this one.

A lot of girls feel like it’s weird to date a guy who’s shorter than them.

I had no idea what to do or how to react, but after a few weeks, when he finally asked that crucial relationship question, I was confident in my answer: yes.

Yes to hilarious conversations, inside jokes, silly faces, cheap shared meals, and lots of adventures. Now you may be wondering, “what changed your mind” and to be honest there wasn’t a specific thing that caused it.

We want guys tall, dark and handsome; big men that’ll make us feel dainty and protected; real men who knock their heads on door frames and ask for fourth helpings of dinner. A recent study found that nearly half the women surveyed would only date men taller than themselves.

When it comes to bed-sharing: compact limbs FTW.12. That annoying thing really tall people do every so often where they rest their elbow on your head, look down and say, "Hey, how's the weather down there? Now he's all grown up and he doesn't give a shit what people think about .

Since coming to college, I have dated a few boys and with each of them, like all the rest, I judged them on their height.

I was pushing perfectly wonderful people away because they didn’t “fit” my definition of what I wanted out of a relationship.

In fact, I was so sure in my answer that growing up, my sister and I developed the statement, “if you’re not tall you’re not family.” Now this statement didn’t develop out of hatred for shorter men, but out of the fact that we thought dating one would be weird and controversial.

We didn’t want people to stare or to be seen as Amazonian freaks holding hands with a “child.” As I got older and began to like boys, one of the first things I noticed, sometimes even over personality, was their height.
