Forget bending down, picking up, or any of the gymnastics couples with height differences have — you guys are always set up for a make-out session. If you've ever had a sneaky cheek kiss while you walk down the street, you know this perk is GOLD. They may bring your whole outfit together, but they'll also make you feel like the BFG on a date.
I think it's safe to say that most girls' dream guy is someone taller than them. Our society has idealized the "perfect couple" as a short girl and a tall guy. It often makes couples who don't fit this standard feel their relationship is inadequate or unacceptable, but this certainly isn't the case.
Alex and I recently celebrated our ninth anniversary, and my big question of the night was…. Should I wear heels? My friend Emma, of Books Are Magic fameis an inch taller than her husband.
It was a year after college, and the person asking me that was a guy I had just started casually dating. He actually was a couple inches taller than me, but the question caught me off guard. It was as if he had peeped in on my mental conversation earlier that afternoon, when I was debating whether I should wear wedges or flats.
So I wanted to hear others opinions and experiences before I properly make up my mind But you might be right it might not hurt to just meet first and see if there is attraction. Physically chemistry last for life too. That is the mysterious part that no one can explain or deny.
Whether you admit it or not, everyone has their own dating preferences. For instance, some people prefer to date non-smokers to go along with their own smoke-free lifestyle. Some want a dog-loving partner so that one day, they can adopt a little pup together. And some have preferences for height.
You've probably heard at least one woman say they only like to date people who are taller than they are. There are plenty of reasons a person might feel that way: to feel protected, to have someone around to reach items on high shelves, to sit on someone's shoulders during a concert. Kidding aside, I combed the internet to see if women care about height — or if that's just a myth.
The implied reason is that women who are attracted to men, actually give a shit about this physical trait. I even once saw a guy list his height on his profile—5'8"—while simultaneously complaining that women cared so much about it. So, I decided to ask a bunch of women who are into guys if they actually give a shit. Relationships are an investment.
