Advice for tall women dating short men
Men tend to stand side by side when getting to know each other.That’s because when a guy faces you head-on, it’s intimidating, Wood says.But it feels like all of a sudden, because we're mostly meeting online first and not in person, height discrepancies have become a big thing, to the point where their "number" is one of the only facts most guys list on their profiles.Now, it makes sense to want to know how tall your potential love interest is. But here's the thing: I never feel the need to ask. There are much more important things to consider—things that really get to the core of a person and are rather hard to find. Shout out to the one guy who listed his supposed penis length on his profile instead— is information I can use! Sexual compatibility is one of those things that's way more important to me than height.But that guy's comment (and online dating in general) brought me right back to that awkward stage.Over the years, I've dated men of all shapes and sizes—some taller, some shorter—without a second thought. Thanks to a Tinder binge, I've noticed height is an issue again—or maybe it never really went away.
At the end of the day, I want to date a confident man.And If a guy is threatened by my height or it makes him feel insecure, then I say on to the next one.I'd rather date a short guy than someone who is short-sighted.At first, I'd try to avoid the issue with due diligence, but most men still regularly round up (by more than a half inch, by the way) when they list their heights on their profiles.Many times, the guys wouldn't balk initially when I told them my height, but the bias became pretty apparent once we met in real life.
