7 Short Guys Explain How They Feel About Dating Taller Women

As told by someone who was nicknamed the Big Friendly Giant (BFG) all throughout school, being a woman on the taller-side of the spectrum certainly has its drawbacks. Like trying to find a pair of jeans that don’t freeze your ankles (impossible) or walking in heels without looking like baby giraffe (So. Many. Long. Limbs!)

Evidently, towering over half the guys on Tinder isn’t great for the confidence either – although some swear that’s not a factor when choosing a potential mate. Here via Reddit, 7 dudes share how they *actually* feel about being the shorter one in the relationship.

“I’m 165cm so most of the woman I’ve been with have been various degrees taller than me. NBD. I never thought much about it.” [Via]

“I am 5’10” with thick socks. I dated a woman who was 6 feet, and it wasn’t an issue at all. We did once get caught in a picture where were kissing with me standing on stair and her in ridiculous high heels. But the height difference had nothing to do with us no longer dating.” [Via]

“When I hadn’t finished my late-teens growth spurt the girl I was dating was 5’10”. I was about 5’8″ at the time. I didn’t mind it, and in fact, now that I think about it I don’t think it ever occurred to me to think about until now.” [Via]

“She was only a couple of inches taller. I liked her too much to really care.” [Via]

“I’m 170cm and she was 185cm. Like, her chin could rest on the top of my head. Hugs were always a face full of boob. That was nice. Unfortunately, she was kind of immature (not about the height thing), so it didn’t last long. I’d date a tall girl again.” [Via]

“When she was in heels she was taller. She was extremely self-conscious about it and felt like she couldn’t wear heels because of it. Granted, I didn’t really mind it because I don’t really like heels to begin with, but I realised it was something she felt like she had to sacrifice. I felt bad about it because of that.” [Via]
