Dating a shorter woman
Dating a shorter woman
I'm proud to say that from a meager 5’0 highschool freshman, I grew into a 5’2 twenty-something who, ironically, who happens to be dating a 6’0 giant. Meeting the family and realizing that the short height gene runs rampant?Although he thinks the height difference is adorable, here are a few things he probably would have wanted to know before dating a shortie.1. Even if we go up on our tip-toes and stretch our arms as far as they can go just to hug you, you still have to bend. We apologize in advance for your future visits to the chiropractor.2.
Tall men (6-foot-2 and above) completed about seven hours and 30 minutes a week, while men of average height did seven hours and 38 minutes.
Maybe short men’s partners are enjoying sharing the housework, financial support, and willingness to flout stereotypes in favor of a strong relationship.
There's a good chance your petite new love interest is a "firecracker," as some say, which will make you love her even more.6. The arm on her head makes her like your kid sister, not your lover.9. She is really good at crawling into small places, like the window of your apartment that you're locked out of. It's actually pretty scary to be lost in a crowd of people taller than you, so hang on tight and don't let go.14. So, when you do finally meet her on your first date, do NOT tell her that she looks so much taller in her Instagram photos.
But it’s not the Upper Paleolithic, and I don’t need anyone to defend me from a saber-toothed cat; it’s 2016, and we know that femininity is a social construct.
If two people make each other laugh and want to have sex all the time, who cares which one is more compact? Research suggests that short men do a larger share of the housework.
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.
I even wondered with some concern whether I weighed more than he did, again, not because I felt like I needed to lose weight, but because I had absorbed the cultural script that says that women should be daintier than guys.
Pair it with a sparkly belt and high heels and we’re ready for a night out in town. We're perfectly aware of our height, so stop bringing it up!
You may think it’s cute and adorable to say, "Aww, babe, you’re so cute and tiny." But hearing it over and over and over again? We don’t constantly ask about the weather up there, do we? We’ll complain about high heels but wear them anyway. Yes, we know you think we’re cute and you want to twirl us around like in a Disney movie, but we’re not a stuffed animal.

What she lacks in height, she makes up for in personality. It makes her feel like her neck is going to break (note: It was made to support the weight of her pretty little head only, possibly along with a motorcycle helmet, if you're that kind of guy). After all, she can wear the highest heels without looking ridiculous, which she knows makes her tall friends jealous. If you keep things where she can't reach them, she make you get them. And if you do want a romantic night of walking around town, let her know in advance so girlfriend can at least wear a wedge.12. Unlike the tall girl you last dated, you can put her in almost any position you want when you're fooling around. She knows how petite she is, but just because you might be seeing her/learning this information for the first time doesn't mean you need to voice it.
