Dating a much shorter guy link exchange internet dating
Anecdotally, I have heard more than my fair share of female clients disclose how a sense of security and protection are key factors. My point is that I wouldn't be as attracted to someone who couldn't keep me safe.One client, in particular, told me that she feels “more secure” when she is out and about with a tall man, while she clarifies that she'd feel more nervous if she were with a man who could not protect her physically in case she were somehow threatened. So many of the possible explanations of why women don’t seek out short men sexually or romantically don’t make logical sense. I would most likely not be attracted to a man who's shorter than me and not very strong.Most women want to feel feminine, regardless of their height and their partner’s proportion to it. “I think this is important, because even if the guy is confident, sometimes the girl could still feel self conscious next to him because the height difference is striking.Sure, you may not be able to sweep her off her feet (physically), but there are other things you can do. A guy telling her it’s attractive that she’s tall can help.” says Emily.If we conceptualize the dynamic along a continuum of developmental stages, it’s as if women see short men as awkward teens stunted in time, desperate at a school dance and relegated to the side wall.In short, it seems that somehow short men aren’t perceived as men.It was at the moment that I realized that I was as much of a culprit as any of them, I am a heightist!
Having heard short male clients of mine complain about their jeopardized status in the dating pool, I can speak for at least some of them when I say that short men believe that women see them as less than or deficient, as if models pulled off an assembly line because they don’t measure up to the others.
How’d her current beau sneak in, despite the height requirement?
“He like, doesn’t notice it or even care about it and he’s certainly not threatened by it.
The absolute quickest way that I filter through men that I might be interested in is by height. When you spend 96.4% of your life taller than everyone around you, it is a pretty awesome thing when someone makes you feel small, more specifically when he's handsome and hugging you. At first it was strictly flattering, but then I started to experience a hint of frustration. The only reason we can't date is because of my height?
Apparently, as of late, I have seemed both extra fantastic and extra tall, because I have gotten several comments like "If I was only two/three/four/eight inches taller; I would totally date you".
