Dating a short woman
High heels are our best friends — even if we complain about them. That’s a truth that I came to terms with when l turned 13 and realized my reign as one of the tallest girls in elementary school had ended; I just stopped growing.
What’s interesting about my client, Alexis, is that she had it wrong when it comes to her attitude about short men.They make you feel like a supermodel when you stand next to them. Their height prevents you from standing on your tippy toes.Another great thing about dating shorting men is you can say goodbye to kinks in your calf muscles from all that standing on your toes to reach the mouth of your love. Shorter men can be just as hot and just as charming as tall men.Although he thinks the height difference is adorable, here are a few things he probably would have wanted to know before dating a shortie.1. Even if we go up on our tip-toes and stretch our arms as far as they can go just to hug you, you still have to bend. We apologize in advance for your future visits to the chiropractor.2.Your clothes aren't just loose on us; they’re gargantuan.The message many women send short men goes something like this: Yeah, sorry, but nothing you could say or do could ever give you a chance with me. For those of you who insist that you’re not attracted to short men, you should, at least, try to have a good reason why you’re not.
Men and women both fall prey to the (remarkably persistent) myth that sexual attraction works on auto-pilot, as if we are all preprogrammed to be attracted to the ones who captivate our attention. The type of person you’re attracted to depends largely on your beliefs. My client, Alexis, comes from the most machismo family I can imagine, full of firefighters, Marines, and gobs of Old Spice. In Alexis’ family, she was the only daughter and the men in her family were brawny and tough.
She is one of my clients who has never dated a short man, and she has no intention to ever date one.
She insists, “I’m just not attracted to them.” Alexis is a smart woman, and she is also a nice person, even though her attitudes about short men are actually pretty patronizing and dismissive.
Then, of course, there's the equally antiquated idea that men who are vertically challenged are somehow less masculine.
A study from dating site looked at 50,000 interactions over two months and discovered that the likelihood that a man under 5-foot-9 is contacted by a Manhattan or Bronx woman online is just 1.2 percent. But after we surveyed mental health experts about what qualities matter or don't matter to their clients looking for lifelong partners, we discovered that shorter men are actually husband material.
