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.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. 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.
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.
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 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.
Somehow seeing them together helped me break through my insecurities of being with a shorter man.
