Dating men shorter than you

14-Apr-2019 21:11

I want to know the following information: Is he reliable? If not, is he working his fingers to the bone looking for one? By the way, who’s going to care how tall anyone is as you celebrate your 25th anniversary together?

I also want to know if he’s a good listener and if he talks well about his friends or family because he should already have some good, close interpersonal relationships.

Yeah, I don't get the judgement over a few fucking inches. 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." So I went for it, we moved in together after three months, married four years later, and four years after that, we're expecting our first baby. I still wear heels no problem, though I do catch myself slouching down into one hip to be his height in pictures, which is a dumb habit of mine.

How the hell could anyone think that makes the tiniest difference when the man I married is a giant where it matters? 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 physical type either. He has never had a problem with it, but I use to be so self conscious.

Sexual attraction largely derives from your upbringing.

What’s interesting about my client, Alexis, is that she had it wrong when it comes to her attitude about short men.

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. I'm 5'11", he's 5'9" and we've been together for almost 4 years.

Arranged marriages on the other hand are marriages which are set and agreed upon, the legitimate by the families or education, that the two persons, where the couple may not have met before. All this time, she’d told herself that she didn’t like short men because she simply wasn’t sexually attracted to them; in fact, the real reason she wasn’t attracted to short men was because she had a fixed image in her mind of what a man should look and act like as a result of her upbringing, and she needed the men she seeks out romantically to fit the same exact image of the men in her family. I spend more hours than you’d believe trying to help men and women change the type of person to whom they’re sexually attracted. The first step is to dig deep and ask yourself what in your history makes you attracted to a certain type, as well as what in your history repels you from a certain type.In my work with women, I’ve found that there are two basic reasons why most women won’t date a short man: Some women will feel nervous about being too big, telling themselves they’ll look smaller if they’re with a bigger guy; others simply want the knight in shining armor, and they need a man to live up to a fantasy image of masculinity and size, telling themselves that a bigger man is also automatically emotionally stronger, too.They can have a great sense of humor, be the life of the party, or the nurturer who is always taking care of everyone and making sure everyone’s okay.While the school and college years are typically defined by conformity and image consciousness, one’s adult years – say, one’s 20s and 30s – are intended to be periods of growth and individuation.

But he's such an amazing man, the difference doesn't bother me. It's so much easier to kiss and cuddle a guy (nearly) the same size, instead of one that towers over you. It wasn't something I cared about in the least, but I'd be lying if I said others didn't make it a big deal. It was fucking irritating and I don't get why it freaking matters at all. We sit on a couch he puts his head on my shoulder, we cuddle I scoot down in the bed so we are at the same height. Other guys have brought it up in the process of hitting on me, like "don't you want a real man" and girls have said no guy wants a girl taller than him or "I'm the perfect height, being tall would be so awkward sexually". It's sort of always in the back of my mind about how weird we must look. I have three brothers who are all 6 5 or taller, so I think that's why I like short brown boys ;)Ask Women: A subreddit dedicated to asking women questions about their thoughts, lives, and experiences; providing a place where all women can comfortably and candidly share their responses in a non-judgmental space.
