Dating a Shorter man...

 

I consider myself a fairly tall woman at 5'7". The majority of men I have dated were always a few inches taller than myself. When I was with someone near my height, I felt akward towering over him, especially when wearing 3-4 inche heels. It wouldn't be possible for 'me' to dress up in flats, the glamour of sexy shoes would be lost. We all know that heels make our legs look awesome and I haven't met a man yet that didn't think a woman in heels wasn't sexy.

 

So I wonder, is it old fashioned to think men should be taller? We all see stars walk the red carpet with women who Really Tower over their dates. My guess is these women were former (or current) models who's average height starts at 5'9" & goes above 6". Maybe that's a Hollywood thing, I don't know.

 

For me great confidence comes with being tall. I don't need to ask men to grab something high on a shelf when out shopping, etc. When I'm out w/girlfriends I'm the one to help them. My everyday flats are usually 2 inches so that makes me 5'9" casually.

 

In closing when I don my heels & a nice dress, I feel like a Queen... tall, statuesque and full of confidence.

 

How do WOMEN feel about dating men who are equal in height or shorter?

How do MEN feel about dating women who are taller than them?

 

What do others think? Would love to hear both perspectives.

MURDER ??? I can't even kill a bug. I actually relocate them to keep them safe. Every living thing deserves its best chance to live a full life. So THIS Sag DOES NOT KILL ... I'm on the cusp of something.... Whatever is before me in November. I follow the signs so intensely. Haha...  NOT.

 

 I will confess to killing mosquitoes & wasps because I'm highly allergic to them. But that's about all. Hell, I have a beautiful black bear that cruises through my yard almost every night. It sickens me that people kill these awesome creatures for sport.

 

OH you can add an intruder INSIDE my home with intent to harm me...I wouldn't kill him (them), but after 16 rounds of lead in their legs, they'd  never walk again... But live they will !!!



Well...I have let 1, or so; ride my shoulder's at a rock concert The KISS concert comes to mind, and, of course, 38 Special.  115 lb's, and built. No matter the heighth; the brevity of the soul must be considered.

 

You've got to...sniff the flower's

Got to..................Skate on ice.

Whatever path you take to end

....................Is worth the price

 

You've covered stall

From sky, and all

To depth's you choose to dare

 

Well; Amelia's Spirit

Come forefront, clear and bare

 

And men, beware

The arrow's flare

The Sag's bow hath flew

 

Her aim is right

In dead of night

To capture

Doctor Who?

I'm 5'11 and I see confidence as a main attraction. I'm not giving up a great mate because of their height. It's just not that important in the bigger scheme of things in my life.

I think people are different, same thing can be valued different by individuals. I am petite, guys and many girls are taller than me. When I was 18, I stop growing, so I was very sad for my short, and blamed on my parents(I feel so sorry about it now.) but later I found height was not a big problem in my life. There were tall guys, so so tall guys and short guys who told me that they liked me. I was in a rock climbing team, my height became an advantage to me and my partners. Because everyone was taller than me, I felt being protected and very safe.

 

unfortually, I have never (also will never have chance to) dated a man shorter than me cause I am already short enough, but I guess it must be fun when the lovers are in same height and can directly look into each other's eyes.

Love is what we make It up to be just like the rest of the world. We know the sky is blue. We interpret it that way. There's someone in the world that speculates this and believes it's some other color but we are brainwashed to think that. Those two people would have a vastly different view of the world. When it comes to love, our boundaries and expectations ultimately define who our romantic partner is. For example I say I will only date white men who are 6'6 or taller. I just created a boundary of what is acceptable. Meaning that's my view on love. Someone who doesn't set those boundaries will not care about hieght but will have other preferences in place. We make love to be what we feel it should be so in essence we fall in love with someone of a similar mind or view.

Quoting Dakota35:

Hi Pat, so glad to see you back around, I've been thinking about you and wonder where you were.

 

The problem is that, there is a fine line between being helpful and protective and being over protective.  When I'm with a woman, I think about her night and day, I worry about everything she does, because I want her to be safe.  So some women don't see this a me being loving and caring but instead controlling, which I am not.  But as long as I'm aware of this, then perhaps I can find a happy medium.

 

It just feels like I need to be protective of small petite women.  Now when I was in college I went to a concert with a girl that was about 6' tall and has some weight on her.  I wasn't worried one bit about her.  She was on the floor and the crowd was pushing and she could hold her own and then some.  But if I'd been there with a small petite woman I'd have probably put her on my shoulders or threatened any guy that pushed her.  

 

Pat, I'd come over but it's a rather long drive. :-)




I'm here.  Just not so much anymore.  Too darn busy with other stuff.

 

I get you completely about wanting to take care of a petite woman versus not feeling so much the need for a tall woman.  I think that's pure instinct.

 

As for your not coming on over my way because it's a long drive--I do so understand.  LMAO!!!  So we shall settle for supporting one another through the blogs. N'est-ce pas?

 

Love you, pal.  Keep up the good work around here.

LMAO at this post.  Nothing wrong with it, mind you.  It's a great question.  But I have a little story to tell about men/women and their heights.

 

My maternal grandmother was close to 6' tall.  The man she fell in love with and married was barely 5'5" inches.  When they were in their mid 80's my mom and my brother and I would go to their apartment in Scarsdale, NY to pick them up to take them to lunch, or dinner.  When they left their apartment, they always did so arm in arm.  Getting into the car--you couldn't separate them.  They had to be holding hands.  And then they canoodled all throughout the meal in the restaurant.

 

If we went to simply visit them in their apartment, they couldn't keep their hands off each other for more than 5 minutes.  They always had to be touching.  Obviously, height had nothing to do with their love for one another.  They simply adored each other.

 

When Grandad became ill with prostate cancer, back in the 1950's when nothing could be done for that disease and he was laid up in a hospital bed for many years while doing nothing but dieing slowly, Nana would visit him every week, driven there by one of us, and she would jolly him into laughing, lift his spirits, and make him feel well. 

 

When he finally died, most of our family thought Nana would go soon after from grief.  Guess what?  She lived for another 14 or 15 years--and did so cheerfully.  I attribute that to the fact that they had such a wonderful relationship with him that she could easily let go; let Grandad die, knowing he'd be waiting for her in Heaven. 

 

Well, that story has gotten a bit off track, but I think my point is clear.  Height has NOTHING to do with true love.

For me I prefer a man who's at least as tall as me when I wear high heels. This is not hard to do as I am only 5 3".

 

But if it just so happened that I fall in love with someone shorter, then I'll just embrace. Afterall, we are all about the same height when we lay down at night....

 

I read it on a science journal somewhere that shorter men live longer than very tall men. It makes sense because energy has to travel and it takes resources which depreciate life.

 

I would rather not date any men taller than 6 2". It would feel that they are too far away from me.

Balance is a beautiful word.

My food for thought...I'm 5'11" and have dated shorter and taller women.  Hardest part with a taller lady is to convince her to wear heels. Always seem to be second guessing.

Second hardest is dancing especially if she is in heels.  Not impossible and actually can be fun discovering new ways to dance.

Quoting Curious2078:

Gotta agree with that.  We--or some of us, sometimes me included, place so many limitations on what we'll put up with we wind up with nothing.  On the other hand, sometimes some of us, me included, want to wind up with nothing.  Not all the time, mind you.  Just sometimes.  Just some of those times when things seem hopeless and we need for some reason or another to believe they are hopeless.  Sometimes we need those down times.  Down times to recoop. 

 

Then we get back up again and we aren't so negative.  We're back up to being hopeful and not nearly so limiting in what we'll "put up with."

 

One thing, though.  I can't relate to being too tall for any man unless he's a midget.  LOL.  I'm 5'2" and a little bit.  Almost no one in the universe is too short for me. 

 

Have a great evening--that wish is for everyone.



HA PAT! 

 

Reminds me of the SEINFELD show and how Jerry would ALWAYS find a reason to break it off with a woman... 

 

MAN HANDS (That was funny!) 

 

EATING ONE PEA AT A TIME!!

 

WEARING SAME DRESS EVERY DAY!! 

 

FOR NOT TASTING HIS PIE

 

BEING TOO MUCH LIKE HIM

 

BEING NAKED ALL THE TIME

 

SPEAKING TOO LOW!!

 

YADDA, YADDA, YADDA!!! (But I'd have to go with the MAN HANDS... ICK!!) 

 

HI PAT!! Hope you are doing well... ;)

I can vouch that Hoping is more petite in person than she even appears in her photos.  That is a compliment, so don't go hating.   I also believe that she is going to have to work really hard to find a guy shorter, unless she is wearing stilettos.  Hoping you need to stop going to midgetdating.com....sorry, little people. :-)



@ DAKOTA... 

 

GOSH BE DARNDET DAVID!! Now that everyone knows I'm on the midget site, all the women will be showing up in droves!! I was trying to avoid the competition!! :) 

 

How are ya sweetheart! Glad to see you are hitting the weights again. I know for a while you were slackin'! 

 

So, I hop back on here for a minute and who did I see? 

 

JEN, JEN, JEN.... 

 

ALL THAT SPUNK LITTLE GIRL!! I saw you on another of this ladies blogs.... and YIKES! I see you still have your "gator jaw" attached! LoLoL... If the guys really knew your bark is worse than your bite! 

 

So, where were we? 

 

Oh.. being tall... or men being short.. 

 

Not a problem for me typically.... 

 

I prefer my men like I prefer my coffee.. 

 

GRANDE WILL SUFFICE, BUT VENTI IS BEST... 

STRONG, HOT...  AND A BIT ON THE SWEET SIDE... ;)

 

NOW WHERE IS OUR LOVELY LADY DI???

Quoting easymantolove:

No, short men lie about their height on their profiles... tall men have no need to lie.

 

On the flip side, heavy women lie about their weight on theirs... thin women have no need to lie.

 

 

Once, I asked a woman who was 6'6 out on a date and she told me that, at 6'2, I was too short...

 

Back 15+ years ago one of the major network shows (think 20/20) had a show on women dating shorter men... They kept bringing in these model types and presenting them with short men.  They kept uping the ante on each round.

 

Short (5'4 - 5'6)

Short and succesful

Short, successful doctor

Short, successful, internationally renowed doctor

Short, successful, internationally renowed doctor and author

Short, successful, internationally renowed doctor, author and professor 

 

Still no interest

 

Short, successful (worth $10's of millions) internationally renowed doctor, author and professor and finally one well maybe one date

 

Short, successful (worth $10's of millions) internationally renowed doctor, author and professor who devoted his free to childrens orphanages and FINALLY one woman said "Well, if he were all that!"

 

Really?

 

I think other than JenKneee's PTSD, an amazing number of women go out of their way to NOT find love. He's too short, he's too bald, he's too this, that or the other and by the time you rule out all the physical qualities, you're left wondering where all the great guys are!
