And such people will go on with their dating, irrespective of what others say.
As long as a guy and a girl are comfortable with each other’s height, then no one else has the right to try to impose their opinions on them.
In short, it seems that somehow short men aren’t perceived as men.
Author and cultural commentator Bel Hooks refers to this fallacious, pumped up version of the real man as the kind of man who can "take action and break the rules." What characteristics do women find attractive in men?
A 2014 working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research on men’s heights and relationship dynamics found that on average, short men (here defined as 5-foot-7 and below) did eight hours and 28 minutes of housework per week, or about 28 percent of the total.It is necessary to have this theory demystified as some would still argue that it easier said than done, adding that guys are wired to always be taller than the girls, and will always feel awkward if they are shorter.It is said that the guys won’t necessarily comment on it, but some remarks they make will expose how uncomfortable they are with the tall girl. We love them, we hate them, and sometimes we date them. But even me — a gal of 5 feet and 4 inches — has problems. When you're out in public and people look at you, you wonder if they’re thinking that you’re a girl with a short boyfriend. A girl who is 5'9″ is obviously going to think most guys are pretty f*cking short. Once you're towering over him, he's ready for you to get back down to his level.I know many an otherwise open-minded woman who swears that she would never date someone shorter than she is, and I used to count myself among them. According to the CDC, the average height difference between men and women is 5.5 inches (coincidentally — or maybe not — that’s about the same length as the average erect penis. And both men and women feel pressure to adhere to height norms: One 2008 study of college students found that about 50 percent of guys wanted their partners to be shorter than them, while 90 percent of women wanted their partners to be taller than them.I clock in at 5-foot-10, a good 6 inches taller than the average American woman, and had never considered dating a guy shorter than me until I ended up falling for one — and I’m happy I did. I’m here to tell you that this requirement is overrated. Guys who are comfortable with you being taller are likely comfortable with your ambition, intellect, and talent too.You used to love being a tall, sexy woman, but now it just feels like a problem over which you have zero control.Your internalization of the patriarchy makes you question why you're dating him. You feel insecure about it, and that makes you feel like a huge dick.I even wondered with some concern whether I weighed more than he did, again, not because I felt like I needed to lose weight, but because I had absorbed the cultural script that says that women should be daintier than guys.But it’s not the Upper Paleolithic, and I don’t need anyone to defend me from a saber-toothed cat; it’s 2016, and we know that femininity is a social construct.
