Do tall men like dating short women
I remember one friend saying that he was a bit hesitant to go on a date with a girl he met because she was a good five inches taller than him.The advice my sage BFF came up with in that moment?I was destined to grow to basketball player heights.Flash forward some time later and I'm in my late teens, not at all tall, and clearly not about to grow by leaps and bounds.
To invert the issue, somehow height difference isn't such a big deal when it comes to shorter women.When I was a teen my mother took me to the doctor and had my wrist x-rayed.Supposedly you can project someone's projected growth based on how their bones are fusing together.It's a part of myself I've fought, manipulated, resented, and struggled to embrace for over half of my life.
So when people inevitably criticize me for taking men's comments about my height too personally, I'm the first to agree. And I haven't worked this hard to love my body for some guy to nonchalantly tell me how to feel about it over a gin and tonic.
While some people find that their height doesn't impact dating at all, others may feel that it allows for judgment, fetishization, and stereotyping.
