Dating a guy much shorter than you

At first, I didn't think of him romantically since he was shorter than me--it seemed like he was off limits or something!

But we were in the same group of friends and slowly began falling in love. The only time it bothers me is when we're at a formal event, like a wedding.

As the months went by, it stopped bothering me that I was taller than he was. When I wear heels (which I love), I can be as much as four or five inches taller than he is; I feel lanky and awkward, and he feels short and squat. "The Lean." As I'm standing next to him, I'll put all my weight on one leg and kind of lean into my right hip, so I look casual but am also not standing totally upright.

Their peer-reviewed study, published online in 2013, found that in 92.5 percent of couples, the man was taller than the woman and that the average height difference was 14.1 centimeters, or 5.6 inches.

Wanting to measure the height difference in existing couples (as opposed to people’s preferences for a partner — we’ll come to those later), researchers in the Netherlands used survey data from 12,502 couples who were the parents to babies born in the U. Men taller than women might be the norm, but you can see how many outliers there are and how far out they’re lying when you take a closer look at the data.

Just 3.4 percent of couples were of the same height, and in 4.1 percent of couples, the woman was taller than the man.

Even though men were on average almost half a foot taller than women, there was a big standard deviation of 9.3 centimeters (3.7 inches) either way.

We asked some, and this is what they said: "My ex was a bit shorter - probably a few centimetres - and I briefly dated a guy who was a head shorter than me.
