Dating a guy shorter than me

In fact, it’s kind of silly to throw away what could be a great relationship just because of someone’s height.

If you genuinely like this guy and he likes you back, then I think that you should definitely give him a chance.

showed that in 92.5 percent of opposite-sex couples, the man was taller than the woman.

A guy who can look at all those statistics and societal pressures and say "eff that" is less likely to be threatened by other ways that you buck gender stereotypes — for example, instead of feeling weird about you getting a raise or showing off your superior sports knowledge, he’ll celebrate the fact that he’s with someone who doesn’t make herself smaller to accommodate others.2. guys from 20 to 29 years of age are under 5-foot-10, the average male height, while only about 20 percent of guys exceed the 6-foot mark.

You don’t have to make any calculations about the height of your heels. Yes, it makes sense to narrow your pool of potential suitors based on what you value — it’s very reasonable to look for someone with a basic understanding of grammar, for example — but too long a list of non-negotiables can blind you to people who could make you very happy. If you "only date" men at least 6 feet tall, you’re shooting yourself in the foot as far as selection. Dating shorter can help you get over your own insecurities about size.

While other women might feel like they have to pass on a perfectly cute pair of shoes or stick to flats so they stay shorter than their dates, you’re already taller than your man in bare feet, what’s the difference between being 2 inches taller or 5? When I first started dating a shorter guy, I felt insecure: not about my own height but about whether I would read as "feminine" to my partner and, admittedly, to the world when we were out together.

Not surprisingly, she was suddenly interested in him again.

She did everything she could to win him back, but it didn’t work… That might sound like a lame story I just made up to ultimately get my point across, but it’s very much the truth.

For some reason, it’s not socially acceptable for dudes to be shorter than their girlfriends.

Even though she seriously liked this guy, the teasing eventually got to her and she broke up with him.

About a year later, she ran into him and discovered that not only had he hit puberty, but he had also shot up in height and was now a lot taller than her.

I was once close friends with a girl who REALLY liked this guy. She didn’t want to date someone who was shorter than her, and so she blew him off to date someone else.

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.
