terminology for older women dating - Dating man shorter

But I bristle at the implication that there’s something inherently morally wrong about who I choose to date. I acknowledge that my palate is flawed and that I’m missing out on any number of delicious, well-crafted dishes that everyone else can enjoy.

Guilting yourself into pursuing someone who you know, empirically, doesn’t do anything for you is a waste of time for everyone involved. Yes, maybe every once in a while I should take a bite of goat cheese and see if I like it — in case it is, as they say, an acquired taste. That is a waste of excellent goat cheese someone else would’ve loved to have eaten, not to mention that I will probably vomit all over you.

But after years of this, I’m pretty sure I’ll always feel the same way about goat cheese. Personal preferences exist, and to deny that is willful ignorance.

My aversion to goat cheese doesn’t make me a bad person — neither does my attraction to tall men.

The same height was fine, but shorter, absolutely not. Is it because we want a mate that “matches” us so we can look “beautiful” together?

Honestly, it was something I obsessed about, like many other girls and women in our society do. How did this notion develop in our minds that there was something wrong with dating someone who was shorter? Fast forward to sophomore year of college and I couldn’t have been more wrong.

When I say “short,” I'm talking like 5'7″ and under. He may have a beautiful face, killer abs and a stellar personality, but all you or anyone else can seem to focus on is that your boo is a tiny little munchkin.

I'm not wearing heels so I can be a solid 5 inches taller than you (and that's in kitten heels).” When you do wear heels, he immediately realizes the error of his ways.

(To be fair, I am arguably both a moron and an asshole.) Refusing to date short men out of fear you’ll “look funny together” or that you won’t feel comfortable wearing heels — two of the common reasons preaches against — is rull, rull dumb, ladies.

If you want to date somebody, date the shit out of them.

Here, dear reader, is where you might stop liking me. I wholeheartedly agree that dating requires open-mindedness.
