Tall women dating short guys
You don't think superficial things should get in the way, but it happens to a lot of couples.People will judge you for whatever reason and for a lot of so called "mismatched" couples, you have to be so much stronger than all the noise.I got bored with the what ifs, and me being me, I just flat out asked him after so many run-ins, and work things, if he was interested in me and soon after, our dating life began in earnest.(Long Sigh....) I learned pretty quickly that everyone is apparently cool with you when they think you're just friends or co-workers.His company was there alongside mine, and as before, he was the same person cracking everyone up, except this time, we had one on one time because everyone left to go on the charity walk and we were left manning the tables together.I felt a flicker of something, but again, the situation being work related, there are just lines you don't want to cross just in case feelings aren't mutual.
But I don't understand why people think it's OK to shamelessly put down other women who are taller or bigger than I am.From my dating history, one could gather that I'm pretty open minded when it comes to who I date.I have not been one of those, he has to be this race, or he had to go to this college, or has to to have this color hair as automatic disqualifies because I always felt that if we have a connection or some spark or whatever people like to call it, that that should be what leads to a date or relationship, not some arbitrary list of skin color, hair color, eye color, or in this case, height and so I've dated just about every race, I've dated the chubby guy, the skinny guy, the disabled guy, the rich guy, the poor guy, what have you.It's hard to ignore something as obvious as height, especially if it makes a person stand out.While some people find that their height doesn't impact dating at all, others may feel that it allows for judgment, fetishization, and stereotyping.He just wanted to be 'a man' again, and not be treated more so like a boy by everyone on account of his height.Both of our egos were there and we both allowed them to be crushed, and so we sort of just faded out.It was so ingrained in me to date this variety of people..yet, there was this qualifier that I didn't consciously realize that have that I had pretended didn't exist, that the guys I dated, be tall.It had been a large portion of the bullying I'd experienced in my younger days where so many people made it seem like the only hope I had of every being in any type of relationship was if that other person was taller than me and society re-enforces this over and over and over again. As a short man, Alton felt almost like he had enough problems in the world without the added headache of people calling him my child, or asking how exactly we "did it," or saying they wanted him to stand on a chair so we could be in the same frame for pictures.Alton is a good guy they said, Alton is funny they said, Alton is great with his family, they said, blah, blah, blah, but date Alton when you're taller than him and it's apparently something that friends, family, people that worked with us, and perfectly rude strangers, just could not wrap their heads around.You want to taste what it's like to be a celebrity for a few minutes, walk down a sidewalk as a tall woman holding hands with your much shorter boyfriend or go in for a kiss.
