So, I usually won't date guys that are shorter than me. I started talking to this guy recently (I met him from a dating site and he lives down the street from me) and I really enjoy talking to him and I think he could have potential. Not to mention he's really cute. I asked how tall he was, and he said 5'3" (5'4" with shoes). In the past, I've always felt really awkward around guys shorter than me, and I am 5'6". Something about taller guys just draws me to them. However, this guy is really awesome and we can definitely keep a conversation going. Is there any way to get over a height issue? I had dated a guy before and he was 5'5". I did like him, though it was weird when standing in front of him or kissing. I also went on a few dates with an Asian dude that was 5'3". I didn't care for him, but that could be due to the fact he was all over my sh*t.
Well some people resort to Surgery to increase hight. Like in that movie Gattica (cant remember if its one t or two what the heck ill put two in just for fun) with Uma Thurman and what's his name meh can't remember. If you really like this guy and he feels the same you can book him in for some limb lengthening surgery. I he loves you and wants to be with you he will do it. But be prepared to meet him half way so he only need to get 1 or 1.5 inches to meet you and you can have the lenth of your limbs shortenend. If you really love him you should do it.
On the otherhand the upside to being taller than the guy is that its easier for you to win an arguments and intimidate him.
Its not an easy decison to make, expensive, time consuming, painfull. It would be easier if he had a brother,cousin,dad who was taller. Just thinking outside the square. Most people just walk away and go back to the dating site,MySpace, Facebook after you bonked him of course no point in wasting a sparkly soul, and then think about him, years later wishing that you did. Ok that got personal, I have regrets I didn't bonk a few looking back. Sigh, memories. Sorry about that. This is supose to be about you and not me.
I wrote a long message about this, since I'm a 5'5" height guy and I know quite a bit on this subject, believe me. But I deleted it since I'd rather just leave you with this rationale to your problem, because it is good for any situation in which you're trying to sort out your feelings:
Ask yourself WHY his height bothers you. Not the reasons it does, you already know that. But ask yourself why you are feeling that way. Are they legitimate reasons? Are they based on something real or just speculation? And if you really think those reasons are still good reason to move on, then do so.
And you could also simply ask yourself what you're looking for in a guy, including everything. Does this guy meet enough of those expectations? Is he lacking anything important that you're certain you want in a guy? What about tall guys do you like and can this guy still do that for you without being tall? (basically, ask yourself what a tall guy can do for you that a short guy can't).
For example, if you realize that his height prevents you from being physically attracted enough to him (and since he won't be getting any taller) to have that "spark" then that might give you some closure to your feelings that doubt being with him. Then again, it could be rooted in something like feeling insecure about not conforming to the "norm" of a tall/dark/handsome man and the petite/feminine/reserved woman.
Unless your acting out of desperation I'd suggest you not break your liking tall guys thing if that's what you really are into. Why? Because if height is an issue where it makes you feel awkward then this dude is not really the one for you...you cannot start something new feeling any negativety and expect to be happy. Find someone you know your going to be happy with.
