Dating guys who are shorter
It has nothing to do with height, unless your main sexual fetish is being carried back and forth across a room, over and over again.Sexiness, virility, and even old-fashioned machismo are not outside the domain of shorter guys.Plus, the idea that the only way you can feel like a "real woman" in bed is to be smaller than your partner smells like anti-feminist propaganda to me, frankly.Why doesn't everyone just try to be whatever size they actually are, and just bang the hell out of each other that way?All facts that ring true to me — my dude pulls his weight around our house, and was game to date me even though I was 28 and he was 24 when we met.Though the paper didn't delve into why this disparity exists, I think we might be able to chalk it up to empathy.When we stood side-by-side, his penis was about even with my abdomen, which made sex exactly as awkward as you'd imagine. Trust this 1993 study, published in the way-too-entertaingly-titled Annals of Sex Research, which found that there was basically no connection between height and penis size. But soon after we got together, he asked why I had so many heels that I never wore.
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".
A 2012 survey of college students found that 89 percent of women were only interested in partners taller than them (while 47 percent of men were open to dating a woman who was taller them).
48 percent of women dating online are only interested in men who are taller than them, and a study of online dating in the New York City area found that men who fell below the average American male height of 5'9" typically had a less than five percent chance of having women reach out to them.
Many years ago, before I fell in love with a short guy, I was one of the many American women who only had eyes for the tall ones.
I'm sure you're familiar with the situation — I salivated over any dude who was over six feet, even though, at 5' 2", being with a tall guy just meant that trying to kiss each other while standing up was not unlike trying to parallel park a compact car. And I was far from the only woman who found herself drawn to tall dudes for reasons she never quite thought through.
