Love isn't blind, and we sure know dating isn't blindeither. There are a lot of nuanced factors that go into triggering that ultra-dopamine rush Sadly, though, biology is still largely in charge when attraction happens. There's no way to argue or persuade biology, even if the person with the pheromones our brains most like stands a good foot taller or shorter than you. We can't deliberately choose who we fall for. It's fate! And science! Mostly science, though! Isn't that so romantic? I'm five-foot-three and wouldn't identify as catastrophically or even particularly short.
But coupled with a six-foot-two partner, it certainly looks more that way, huh? Although I have a bit of a history of dating taller dudes, I swear it isn't intentional.
Height seems to play key in a lot of folks' dating decisions, though, if Tinder profiles are any indication. Some people much prefer to date someone only five-foot-eight or taller so heels look less extreme. Others only feel comfortable if they're able to tuck their S. Deliberate or not — exceptionally tall, or short, or neither — at some point you may find yourself in a relationship with a noticeable height difference. And if you already have or are currently wrapped up in one, you'll know what I mean.
Hint: most of it involves compromise which, TBH, should be a core of any functioning relationship, despite how you measure up physically. Someone has to stoop. The other someone has to stand on tippy-toes. Stairs are one easy option to remedy this. Or sitting.
Holding hands, one of the most intimate displays of public affection, gets complicated with a lot of arm bending and dangling. Also, as the person who is typically shorter, I gotta say it makes you feel like you're being led on a field trip at a museum or something. Not the sexiest feeling, really. Shorter people have to crane their neck and eyeballs up. Taller partners are forced to crumble their faces into what surely in multiple chins. It isn't terrifically attractive for either person, in most cases.
It's a committed bear hug every time. The smaller half can barely reach all the way around the other person who conversely can wrap their limbs twice. Especially with hugs. Someone's head is going to naturally fit in the other someone's armpit at one or many points. This can happen while standing, sitting, laying — pretty much any moment of existing.
There's no way to make this look natural if you want both of y'all to fit in a frame which I assume is the goal here. Extra challenge points for photo booth attempts and selfies. Tip: laps are an option.
I don't know what it is about a height difference that makes people feel comfortable asking pretty personal questions, but whatever it is — it's potent. And if y'all must know, just rest assured we have our ways.
Shower sex — although I don't consider super advisable in any circumstance guys, it is SO slippery! Busting out 69 simple does not work. Even missionary can get weird. If you are committed, you can navigate these moves. But in my modest opinion, sex should be fun and feel natural, not like practice for your contortionist routine. But also, I don't know your life, etc. This may happen because the height difference makes it appear that an extreme age difference also exists and even then, REALLY, it's nobody's business.
Or it might communicate their frustration. One of my friends is five feet tall and engaged to a six-foot-two person. She told me a slightly taller woman once half-jokingly accused her of "stealing all the tall ones. Also, WTF? When it comes to holding something just out of reach, refusing to grab the whiskey tumblers from the super high shelf, etc.
Sometimes, too, the prospect of picking the other one up rises. You gotta move the seat back to your normal leg length — not your partner's super long or super short one. Mirrors must be adjusted. Maybe even the steering wheel needs a little altering. I dated a six-foot-four dude for a while and during our relationship, I frequently borrowed his tank tops for a makeshift sundress. Seriously, I just added a belt.
We laughed way too much over this. Ultimately, height is vain whatever and doesn't matter. You found someone cool who thinks you're cool, too? Seriously — we can deal with all that stuff, right?
