Tall girl dating a shorter guy
As someone who falls two inches short of the average female height, I never even thought that dating a guy my height was an option worth thinking about. Today, I'm about to celebrate my fifth anniversary with a wonderful dude who is roughly my height, and I would like you to know that height ain't nothing but a number.But if you need more convincing, please read on for 11 reasons to consider letting a short dude into your life/heart/vagina.(And yes, all of the GIFS below feature male celebrities who are 5'8" or shorter. )You'll never again have to engage in that weird orchestrated moment of stretching and bending, where you can't really enjoy the kiss because you're on your tiptoes and your super-tall dude is hunched over at a weird angle, and everyone involved is about to develop a hernia. (I'm not free to release that information, sorry)I am a person with many hobbies and interests, but I will freely admit to you that the majority my life is about how I can't ever reach anything that's located on a top shelf at the grocery store.Listen, what turns you on is what turns you on, and if you can really only get a wide-on for dudes over six feet, that's a-okay.But if you're only into tall guys, I would urge you to think about why you'll only date tall guys.
You don't need a women's studies degree to know that that's whack.
Short men have been considered "less than" by a culture that still equates height with masculinity, and this has opened their eyes to what a crock traditional gender roles can be.
Obviously, not all short guys are male feminists, and not all tall guys are cavemen who think you should go make them a sandwich.
A 2012 survey of college students found that 89 percent of women were only interested in partners taller than them (while 47 percent of men were open to dating a woman who was taller them).
48 percent of women dating online are only interested in men who are taller than them, and a study of online dating in the New York City area found that men who fell below the average American male height of 5'9" typically had a less than five percent chance of having women reach out to them.
Of course the ability to search for people who meet our criteria is part of the appeal of online dating.
