Dating advice for short men
First of all, if you say something like this IRL or on your dating profile, no decent guy will date you.
I’m tall and it really offends me when a woman says she won’t date short men, as if they are somehow not good enough for her.
Well let me ask you this: have you thought about taking martial arts classes, and learning to protect yourself?
No matter how much your partner loves you, he can’t be there for you at all times, and you may have to handle a confrontation yourself.
Plus, to reiterate, being on the shorter side is not a pitfall or negative in Comment from discussion Sir__Fabulous’s comment from discussion "Men, do you have a problem dating someone taller than you? If so, why and is there a limit to how big the difference can be? But note that they didn’t say they had a complex over it or felt as if this one struggle would ruin the relationship.
Comment from discussion Wander7ust’s comment from discussion "Men, do you have a problem dating someone taller than you? If so, why and is there a limit to how big the difference can be? But, at least it’s comforting to know that there are plenty of guys out there who might like you even more based on your stature.
Comment from discussion Johny Utah_’s comment from discussion "Men, do you have a problem dating someone taller than you? If so, why and is there a limit to how big the difference can be? That means that if you’re a tall woman who prefers them over flats, the right guy won’t make you feel bad about it. Because there’s a big difference between 5’8″ and less than 5 feet.
If you’re dating a shorter guy who’s nervous about the difference, he may want to have more control over what you wear. Be honest about who you are, and your date will have so much more respect for you — and not wonder what else you’re lying about. Sometimes, you assume something won’t bother you until you’re actually in the situation.
Whether your man is short or tall, you have a responsibility to defend yourself, and you can’t put that on another person.
You can’t just neglect your own self-defense and expect another person to make it up for you. When I was a poor musician, I was turned down countless times by almost every woman I dated.
It may be an obstacle, but height is just one of those things you can’t control. Some people may even view a taller woman (or a shorter man) as a red flag.
