Short guys dating taller women
Theme parks have less stringent height requirements than some of the single women I know. When I went on my very first date with the man who is now my boyfriend, I remember being a little taken aback by the fact that, in my modest two and a half inch heels, I could see clearly over the top of his head.
We’d met on Twitter, so all I’d had to go by was a 5mm square picture of what I have come to know as his “nonplussed face”.
“I saw a lot of profiles that said ‘Don’t bother if you don’t know the difference between ‘to’ and ‘too’ - and definitely not if you’re shorter than me.” Apparently, height is one of the most commonly lied about attributes on dating sites, and I know plenty of women, myself included, who have complained when a date turned out to be six inches shorter than advertised.
But who can blame guys for trying it on when we’re so fussy that if they told the truth, they might not get any matches or messages at all?
Check out this equation: Dating Short Men = Uphill Battle. I haven’t conducted a study of my own on the subject, but I can assure you that scores of women of every type will say they simply aren’t attracted to short men.
Some of the kindest, strongest and most committed men I know are short.
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.
Very occasionally, in my online dating days, I’d encounter men who would be ultra specific about a preferred hair colour, body shape or breast type, and be outraged.
Surely you’ve got to be horribly shallow and creepy if you’re basing your requirements for long term happiness on cup size?
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.
