A short guy dating a tall girl
If you have your eyes on a taller woman but your insecurities are getting the best of you, it’s time to face your fears.
Our partners at How About We have made five suggestions for the right and wrong ways to approach and date a woman who is taller than you.
While some people find that their height doesn't impact dating at all, others may feel that it allows for judgment, fetishization, and stereotyping.
Kevin: I'm not one to complain about being short, because once you realize you can shop in the children's section and climb on top of things to get to out-of-reach objects, you're pretty much on a level playing field with the rest of the world. I think a lot of guys fetishize the height gap and say things like, "I'm so into you because you're so short," or "It's really hot knowing that I could lift you up in bed," etc. I know that you think that you will never find the long-legged model of your dreams, or at least a girl who is horny enough to ride you like a rodeo horse, just because god was so freaking unfair and made you look like Danny De Vito.You might see me with my not really impressive 5.8 and think that I never had the same problem as you have right now. Yes, I am not particularly short now, but when I was around the age of 18 in my class. Whenever I saw one of the tall and muscular guys who weighted more than me with my pathetic 50 kilos I was intimidated and convinced that every girl would choose him over me.This might surprise you, but I didn’t find out until recently that most women do not feel the same way as me when it comes to loving vertically challenged men.
When most women find out about my preference for smooching shorties, it’s usually met with crinkled noses and “I could never” or “gross” or the occasional “oh, hell no! That leaves more short guys for me.” And they look at me like I just recited one of Hitler’s speeches in German. As such, I’ve always been the tallest girl in my class.
Today I know that it was the way I dealt with it and not the amount of centimeters itself.
