Because truthfully, isn’t the root of this stigma surrounding shorter men rooted in gender conventions that assert that a man is supposed to, well, dominate a woman in both stature and presence?
The idea that women feel more precious—protected, even—tucked under the arm of a hulk of man? Now I certainly understand people have their tastes—my best guy friend, who stands at 6-feet-7, won’t even consider dating a guy below 6 feet, but as Vogue.com’s Fashion News Director Chioma Nnadi stresses, it’s ultimately about a connection.
You might decide that as a tall woman dating a shorter man, you won't wear heels. How you feel about your body in relation to your partner (and how that affects what you wear) is entirely personal.
If the answer to this question is a swift "No," then there's really no reason to compromise for your shorter man.
If you’re like the rest of us and just trying to get a text back, then you know firsthand that the modern dating market is competitive, confusing, and ultimately deficient in quality prospects; no need to make it even harder for yourself by ruling out the “The One” simply because he doesn’t have to duck to enter rooms.If my height bothers you, this was never bound to work out anyway.Sure, physical attraction is an important part of dating, don't get me wrong.This man should (and probably does) love you the way you are and loves you the most when you feel best about yourself.If you feel best in your heels, wear them with confidence and trust that your date is just elated that a bombshell such as yourself has chosen him.
