I feel intimidated by girls who are taller than me.
Because as a tall guy girls are cute and def attractive a foot smaller
Do you find them childish or small in a negative way?
The opposite. It’s a positive way that they are small and lots of times they are full of energy and fun. Do you feel childish?
No, but I often get that I look 2-5 years younger than I actually am. It's not that I feel childish, but I feel like people often assume that I am.
Which is funny because before everyone else got their growth spurts growing up, I was often told I'm wise and mature beyond my age. Things flipped when I turned 16+.
It’s the opposite for me. Lol people think I look older all the time. So I understand how it feels to be looked at in a different way. Would you rather be looked at as younger or older?
Probably older. Cause with age comes respect often times. Especially as someone working in the medical field, I'm often questioned for my abilities just because I'm smaller in size or look younger despite wearing masks.
Oh what happened at 16, did you stop developing?
I’m 6’6 so guessing you are more than a foot smaller
And I'm the shortest by a stretch in my friend group. I've often felt like a little sister to the guys in our group rather than a peer of the same age or even older.
Do the guys treat you like a little sister just based on appearance?
No, but I just didn't look my age anymore. I'm 20, but often get that I'm 17 or even less. I'm 5'2
That’s a big age difference, I can see how that could be frustrating at times. And if you are in medicine people need to trust you
Yeah, I mean physically I'm not like a child lol, but I'm petite, athletic, and short, so overall I'm a bit smaller than most women. So they joke and poke fun that I'm small, or little, or "snack sized", and they don't mean harm, but I've just always wondered if they genuinely find that as a turn off or are just having fun.
Like the guy I'm currently interested in is like 6'5" and I'm like yikess no way he'd be interested in an armrest. Lol
Guys are visual as you probably know and we use our eyes to make judgements often so I’m sure you don’t look like a child if they are saying those things. Im the opposite been called beanpole and been taller growing up. lol people ask how is the air up there
Trust me because he’s close to my height if you are cute and carry good energy he would be interested
What do you like about him?
Hah, that's a funny question. I could be here for hours. But in short it was his caring and loving personality that drew me to him. He serves those around him, gives everything his all, and values others above himself. He's gentle and softer spoken, but has initiative and steps up to lead when needed. He's Christian and has a beautiful and visible faith, and he lives life in an easy-going and optimistic way. He inspires me to be better.But after all these I began to appreciate his physical features too. His hair, his eyes, his like-perfectly-huggable-height, his smile, his athletic physique and how he cares for nutrition and exercise.
You made me laugh when you said ‘in short’. Wow sounds like you know a lot about him and I totally see how you have connected to his generosity. Has he shown an interest in you or do you see him around lots of other girls?
Lol believe me, that's short. He's not interested romantically in anyone right now. We're really close as friends, but he's not ready for anything else and neither am I right now.
Lol I gotta call bs on that one. I get it you are focused in other areas rn but if he asked you out on a date you would not turn him down :)
I wouldn't turn him down, but it would probably look very different than traditional dating. And the mere chance of him asking me out, or anyone else, is like 1% for at least the next 2 years.
So you are saying there is a chance…is that because of studying medicine or another reason?
He's focused on school, and so am I. We don't believe in just dating for fun, we date for marriage. If we date, we're either already sure we want to marry or we want to find out if it'd work. Usually people in our church date until they realize they do want to marry, or don't and break it off. And if they get engaged, they get married as soon as it takes to plan the whole wedding. If we'd date, we'd likely take things super slowly until like 2 years from now.
Usually though from my own siblings to friends who have married already, it usually is about a year and a half to max 3 years from the first date to wedding day.
If we'd date now, it'd likely be on the upper spectrum of 3-4 years. But who knows. 🤷♀️
Oh wow it’s always interesting to hear how different cultures operate. Here in Florida people meet and date all the time for various reasons. When I was in college it seemed like every week someone had a new girlfriend or people has relationship drama. And few if any talked about marriage. We all just knew we were young and there to get an education
So if you are not likely to date for 2 more years, why ask a question about dating lol?
Wasn't about dating, just curious to see what guys think of shorter girls lol. And I'm not the only girl who has wondered this in the history of girls lol.
Oh I guess as a guy I saw the word relationships and thought it was about dating. But obv relationships are not always romantic. One benefit of a shorter girl is when she’s being a brat I can just pick her up and throw her over my shoulder and carry her where I wanna go. Do girls still like to me picked up in the air?
Lol can't say that I'd be very happy with a guy if he did that.
Also I asked the question generally, not necessarily with the specific guy in mind. I have a lot of taller guy friends.
Then grow another foot or wear heels :p same tho, I wouldn’t want girls picking me up
Generally I have several shorter friends and like how confident they are and to me it’s their personality and intelligence that I value
^ would be nice if all saw it like that lol
Well I try to be positive. Too many others are toxic so gotta balance them out. How do you see others?
Depends on how well I know them. If I know them really well then I tend to be most observant than most and can see someone's true nature. If I don't know them well, then I give the benefit of the doubt and treat and see them as the persona they get across.
You sound like an empath, that’s a rare gift
Feel free to follow me. Just realized I’ve way gone beyond just answering your question. Oops
