I kind Dating guys that are shorter than you love it. I feel so fierce being 5' 10"". Haha I made my bf put my heels on once, he was taller than me and he was all embarrassed it was cute.

Dating guys that are shorter than you took like one step took them off and was grumpy the rest of the night because I kept poking fun at him.

It's funny, I don't think that heels are more attractive than any other shoe. But what is attractive is the confidence it gives a woman when she wears them. In my personal opinion there is a quite obvious difference in the shape of a Dating guys that are shorter than you legs that I find attractive. I understand where your coming from, I just Dating guys that are shorter than you care about their calves "popping". But like you said that just my opinion.

Actually, sometimes I Dating guys that are shorter than you consider myself a Dating guys that are shorter than you. But like the BFG. The gentle giant who goes around protecting those drunker than her.

And really, if a guy gets freaked out about that, he's not worth the second date anyways. It's one of those thing's that it's Dating guys that are shorter than you fine if it filters people out. Plus, I mean, sometimes a guy sees a tall woman and just thinks "I wanna climb her like a jungle gym.

My high school boyfriend was maybe inches shorter than me, and he would tell me that I was "worth the climb.

I'm just shy of 6...

I'm 6' tall and I've only ever been with two guys who are taller than me one is my husband, whose height was one of the reasons I messaged him Dating guys that are shorter than you OKCupid in the first place. Most of the time, the height differences haven't been big enough to bother me. One dude lied about his height and claimed he was 6'1", but he was shorter than me.

I was so picky and...

I didn't realize this was a somewhat-common thing guys did until I read this thread. I did use the height difference as a reason to break up with a dude once, but it wasn't the only reason. I think I was just in a weird time in my life. But if I'm remembering correctly, that was the biggest height difference between me and of any of my Dating guys that are shorter than you for the set of relationships in which I was the taller one.

Why do you feel insecure while wearing heels? It's a great tool for weeding stupid people out AND look great. Anyone who gives you shit about it is automatically someone you don't want to be involved with anyway, and other then that you will look like a very confident tall person, even when you don't totally Dating guys that are shorter than you like that.

I've never been with a guy taller than me and I do sometimes wonder what it feels like to be the small spoon and Dating guys that are shorter than you be the SMALL spoon.

The vulnerability thing is true. I've always been around tall people so I forget that being a short girl probably isnt always a good thing.

I'm 6'0 normally and rock heels up to 6in, go for it lady if they make you feel good theres no reason not too. My husband is 5'2", and I'm 5'6".

It was never an issue for me, but he was really concerned about it for the 1st few months. He'd had issues with others in the past. I grew up around amazing human beings who happened to be much shorter than average. My 4'9" mother is the strongest and most resilient woman i know.

My 5'3" grandfather was thoughtful and loving and fierce as hell when his family was threatened. As a friend of my grandfather once said, there's more than one way to stand tall. Dating guys that are shorter than you husband is an incredible person. He's the type to give you the shirt off his back and shrug it off as nothing when you try to thank him.

He overcame growing up in destitution, danger, and abuse to become a surprisingly well adjusted and empathetic man. He works hard to make sure his family is supported and knows they are loved. He works hard to be sure his son will never understand the world his father grew up in. Yeah, I don't get the judgement over a few fucking inches. How the hell could anyone think that makes the tiniest difference when the man I married is a giant where it matters?

Do you mean his heart or his penis? Your last sentence could literally mean either of those things. I love the way you write, though, you should write fiction. When I met him, I thought to myself that he wasn't really my physical "type" - I had always dated taller men a challenge, being a taller-than-average woman - and then I thought "Well, it would be really shitty to pass up a great guy because of something as insignificant as height.

Thanks for being sensible, past-me! This is me and my boyfriend. I'm 5'11", he's 5'9" and we've been together for almost 4 years. I still wear heels no problem, Dating guys that are shorter than you I Dating guys that are shorter than you catch myself slouching down into one hip to be his height in pictures, which is a dumb habit of mine.

One short man told us that we were amazing and gave him so much hope when we were walking down the street holding hands, which was weird and adorable. My husband is 3" shorter than me and wasn't really my Dating guys that are shorter than you type either.

But he's such an amazing man, the difference doesn't bother me. I still wore heels on my wedding day. It's so much easier to kiss and cuddle a guy nearly the same size, instead of one that towers over you. If you are currently three months pregnant and dying from some kind of terrible mutant death-cold, I might be you!

Sometimes I feel self-conscious about the height difference, particularly in photos, but that's my own insecurity - I'm just BIG. Slim, but just a big person, with broad shoulders and long legs. I always have been. So sometimes I see photos of us and think "Gah, I look huge," but Hmm, 7 months pregnant and suffering from immune response to the flu shot I got yesterday Almost the same thing! I have been married to my 3" shorter husband for 4 years, we are 30 weeks with our first child, annnnd I got my flu shot yesterday.
