I’ve had good luck (or judgement) in dating for the most part. I’ve dated guys who could be described as sincere, honest, loyal, successful and smart. They’ve all been pretty handsome too – and tall. I’m 5′ 4″ (on a tall day) so it’s not hard to date guys who are taller than me, but sometimes that’s not enough.
Almost immediately after moving to The City that Never Sleeps, I became friends with a guy that was 5′ 6″ (on a good day) and 128 pounds. Can you imagine? He had one of the most beautiful faces I’d ever seen. He said he loved me, kissed my cheek every time I saw him and even introduced me to his parents. But we both knew that he was too small, more accurately , I was too big for us to work out in a dating relationship. We were friends so it was okay for a while, but in the end, we both moved on in different directions. And I realize now that it had to be this way because I was so unhappy around him. I turned into this blob of insecurity who could never really change what I didn’t like about myself because I was so busy feeling bad about it.
Being around taller guys, even as friends, helps me feel smaller which is totally important now. I’m not small, but I want to be. And I’m working on it, but until then I’d still like to feel feminine. I do what I can. And the truth is that dating someone taller than me who has broad shoulders, sculpted arms and a big heart makes me feel more secure than someone who has an equally big heart and a little body. Thank you, boyfriend, for not being too little. 😉
Am I alone in this or does anyone agree that dating a taller guy makes them feel smaller?
Would you date someone who is shorter than you?
What helps you feel feminine in a body that is bigger than average?*Originally posted on June 22, 2009 before anyone actually read my blog…;) Just kidding..;) My heart belongs to the faithful few…♥
