So I met this guy on tumbler about 2 1/2 years ago. We Exchanged Contact Information and constantly Skype. We eventually little by little stop talking to each other, then 11months ago he came waltzing back into my life and I accepted him back.
We ended getting really close. We started actually dating exactly 8 months ago. We dated from Oct - May 20th (2014) Together we decided to break up because long distance is harsh and he wasn't ready for that type of commitment & I was really busy. HOWEVER we became really close BEST friends & Decided we would try again after things calmed down. Really nothing has changed we still do couple like things (hes actually sleeping on cam as I type this)
Ok, Enough back story.
Here's The issue. I told him 7 months ago That i was 5'11 (I was) He told me he was 6ft back then but ended up saying he was 5'12 1/2 (w.e difference that makes) Anyway. When I told him I was 5'11 He laughed and said there was no way a girl my age (17) [Hes 18 BTW] Could be that height. Then I showed him proof on cam of me measuring myself and he believed me and said that he found tall girls hot "as long as their not taller than me" I found that kinda stupid. Excuse me, remember I CAN GROW.
So I said to him in a sweet way basically "If you don't like it, Ill be hurt but guys hit on me all the time so i'm sure another guy will love it" He instantly got the hint and said "You know what Idc if you grow taller than me I Love You For You"
Recently I measured myself and found out that I grew nearly 2 inches. I didn't say anything to him about it yet. But last night we watched a movie together and a guy wanted to date a girl but when he approached her she was taller & My ex goes "Nope can't have her, she's taller than you" He also made another comment like this about a tall girl in another movie being "Too Tall Generally"
he's starting this height thing all over again i'm guessing it never ended
We are meeting in 1 month & I need advice. Thanks.

I can definitely relate to height being a problem for you. Being below average in height, many girls will just write me off without getting to know me. Girls who are above average in height are often treated the same way. This world can certainly feel cruel sometimes :(
Anyway, the height difference between you is not that great and he should be able to work past his insecurities about this. You should have a soft-spoken discussion with him about how it makes you feel to hear him say things like that about taller girls and ask him to try to work past his issues. If he cannot bring himself to do that, then you will have little option but to get yourself a different man.1
