About a month after we began to date, I took a trip to Jerusalem and met a fascinating couple there.She was very tall and he was very short and they have been married for 15 years, had several children and he clearly doted on her.Somehow seeing them together helped me break through my insecurities of being with a shorter man.
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.
Yup, classic stories about that involves heightism. Some people won’t mind if it’s chocolate or vanilla. Some just look out for personality first instead of looks. If you get rejected by women who are taller than you, please know that it’s not YOU. You’re simply not their type, maybe it’s your personality, perhaps it’s your height. As I shared earlier, the taller girl I dated loved my personality. There is a feeling of protection that I get from a taller man, real or imagined. I stopped forcing myself to go out with men because it’s the politically correct thing to do. I had opened myself up to this man that turned out to be perfect even though on the outside, being so short, it didn’t seem like he would have been my type. I could wax on for pages about how wonderful he is to me and how much I enjoy having him in my life.
Before we begin: Here are a couple of fun facts about my previous dating life. We dated because she thought I was confident and funny. Okay, that may not be the best analogy, I’m sure you understand where I’m coming. Some just look out for personality first, instead of looks. Once, I attempted to date a shorter man, who was 5’6″ on a good day. Because I was at a time in my life where I thought that I could not be so shallow as to date a man, or not, simply because of his height. First, I want to say that it took me a while to overcome the height issue even though I continued dating him and several other men until I settled on him.
I wanted to know what they think about dating shorter men. Typically I am more attracted to men of significant height, but I have dated two shorter men in the past.
Anyway, I interviewed women who had dated shorter guys.
I knew people starred; I couldn’t stand to look at our reflection as we walked into a restaurant.Previously, I had my picture taken with a dear friend’s mother who is a tiny woman and I look like an absolute Amazon next to her, so I dreaded the idea of ever seen a photograph of this Jockey and I together even though I considered him devastatingly handsome. And because I’m a very strong personality, I didn’t want a man that I could intimidate in any way.Fun fact #1: I once dated a girl who was taller than me. Fun fact #2: I got rejected by girls who were taller than me because they couldn’t accept the fact that I was shorter than her. He and I went out about three times and all the while, I kept thinking ‘I can see over his head. That’s easy when you are not intimate with any of them. It’s a long story, we dated for a couple of months and things simply didn’t work out. She’s out there, and she will be willing to accept the fact that you’re shorter. But more importantly, if he’s okay with looking up to me and he’s a confident person I have been willing to get to know him better. The reason why I only date short guys is because they are a little more grounded (no pun intended) but I feel like most want to make up for their height in some way so they push themselves work wise and not so much on being a man whore. When I did date a taller guy 6’4″ it just feels like your another girl… So, if you get rejected, just move on and look for the women of your dreams. If their head doesn’t at least come to my shoulders when we’re standing up, I’m NOT okay with that. Dating them had nothing to do with their height, simply their personality and our compatibility. I’ve dated men who are shorter than me, but not too much shorter.
