We’d met on Twitter, so all I’d had to go by was a 5mm square picture of what I have come to know as his “nonplussed face”.
There was no opportunity to specify a preferred size, as you might do on or My Single Friend or John Lewis, when you’re ordering duvets.
The term “Heightism“ was made popular by the Second Barnhart Dictionary of New English‘s wide reaching audience in 1971 and now is a household phrase most short men have heard. If a woman is taller than them, they won’t date them. We dated for a couple of months and things simply didn’t work out. How confident am I that you’ll find the women of your dreams? If am man’s initial conversation is about how tall I am, and he’s full of questions about why I wear heels, and he’s seems preoccupied with my height – or his lack thereof – I keep it moving. don’t appreciate you as much, or they just want sex.
Today I thought it would be a fun topic to discuss about women dating short guys. The same applies to women dating short guys as well. Some people love chocolate; some people love vanilla. Since, I have sworn tall guys, anyone over 6’0″ off!! There may be some truth to that, but as a woman who is 5’7″, I want to literally “look up” to a man, and not down or sideways.
I distinctly remember brainstorming who I was going to invite to my first dance as a freshman. He was cute, friendly, funny, and pretty much the ideal first-dance date candidate except for one thing: He was a couple inches shorter than me. If I still felt petite wearing four-inch heels with my frame of 5 feet 6 inches, he was worth my attention.
