Honestly, I don't mind it. He's 5'3" and I'm 5'5". I think people tend to stare at us, and it kinda throws me off because I rarely think about his height compared to mine. I just want to know if the people that stare find it weird, or if they're staring because I'm white and he's Asian. It's not gonna affect how I think of our relationship, I just wish I understood why people stare at us.
not too unusual, both my parents are about the same height 5'5'' (not too diff from ur case since 2'' isn't too prominent anyway, esp if he wears shoes) and i personally never saw it as weird. But at my height (5'11''), i would feel dating a girl taller than me xD
Again. Society brainwashed by the media and stereotyping. Ask yourself this... 1/ Does he make you happy? 2/ Does your parents like him? 3/ Does he a good b/f? 4/ Does other people going to pay you money to date him? 5/ Why do you care so much what other thinks?
Nah girls, don't worry about it. There's a similar 2-3" height difference between myself and my boyfriend, I being taller. I just read further in your question and I'm white, he's Asian too. :P
People can think what they want about that breaking a silly societal norm be it the height one or interracial thing. If he makes you happy, don't concern yourself with what others think. The only way to move towards actual equality, in those respects as well, more people will have to throw all fucks to the wind and just date whoever they want. In the end, you're the one in the relationship with him, not anyone else. :)
It doesn't really matter to me but... My mom and dad are so rude about it. They say he's short enough to "reach" your breasts... They also say that to my sister because her boyfriend is shorter than her by a few inches.
It's super weird in my situations. lol
