Dating shorter guy weird
A girl who is 5’9" is obviously going to think most guys are pretty f*cking short. Once you’re towering over him, he’s ready for you to get back down to his level.
When I say "short," I’m talking like 5’7" and under. He may have a beautiful face, killer abs and a stellar personality, but all you or anyone else can seem to focus on is that your boo is a tiny little munchkin.
Now, don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing bad in finding your man’s height swoon-worthy.
Yet, when I think about why I thought tall guys were more attractive, I found that it boiled down to one thing: my own insecurities. While I didn’t exactly have an eating disorder, I can’t recall a time during my adolescence when I wasn’t on some sort of diet.
“Then maybe I would feel less like a giraffe and more like a girl.”Since when did true femininity have anything to do with size?
Why do so many women feel the need to shrink away, as I did, when I was wearing those wedges?
“I just want to be smaller, like you,” I remember one college friend—one exceptionally tall and exceptionally gorgeous college friend—telling me as I slid on my heels for that night’s outing.
Slowly, this extreme standard of height waned, but I still felt awkward if he was near as tall as I was.
After all, shouldn’t the right man make me feel feminine and small?
In a weird twist of fate, a year into dating Jason, we were at another concert together, and we ran into my old childhood friend Mark.
When Mark shook hands with my husband, I realized that they stood at the exact same height.
