Dating a man shorter than you uran dating
I didn’t really think dating a short guy was a thing, I just knew that I wasn’t going to do it. Still, there are a few things you’ll only know if you’ve been in the unique position of dating someone shorter than you. It took exactly two weeks from the point we started going out for me to forget about the fact that my boyfriend is significantly shorter than me.
‘That’s my dealbreaker,’ I would drunkenly say to people while at uni, when I was really wise in the ways of the heart. Recently, there have been studies claiming that short men divorce less, do more around the house and make better husbands. I remember the time frame, because he was doing a gig (he’s a comedian) and me and my best mate went to watch.
I mean, there aren't too many women staking out the bar looking for the first 5'3” dude who walks by them so they can whisper in his ear.
Women want guys who are “tall, dark and handsome,” not short, pasty and unfortunate-looking.
What’s interesting about my client, Alexis, is that she had it wrong when it comes to her attitude about short men.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.In my work with women, I’ve found that there are two basic reasons why most women won’t date a short man: Some women will feel nervous about being too big, telling themselves they’ll look smaller if they’re with a bigger guy; others simply want the knight in shining armor, and they need a man to live up to a fantasy image of masculinity and size, telling themselves that a bigger man is also automatically emotionally stronger, too.), but back to the point: this warped attitude that tall guys = protective is a bizarre one. And secondly, my 5ft 7in (ish) boyfriend is way better at batting off creepy guys in clubs than my 6ft something ex was (despite the fact that I’m perfectly capable of sticking up for myself, obvs).When we went out last time, guys who tried to dance with me were met with my boyfriend trying to kiss them on the mouth.
