Don't Want No Short, Short Man

As I mentioned before, I’m tall. But I never really feel too self-conscious about my height. My sister always did and she’s an inch shorter than me, at 5’11. But she sprouted really early and was always the tallest in her class. I gradually got taller so no one really noticed. Luckily all of my boyfriends were taller or about the same height as me. Two of them were an inch shorter. I think it's weird to see a tall woman with a short man. I'm glad the both the men and women in those relationships are secure and confident, but I couldn't do that much of a height difference. Call me superficial, but I drew the line at more than an inch. I want to be able to look into the eyes of my partner when standing next to each other. Or, rather, he should be looking into my eyes and not directly at my boobs. Check out these mismatched celebrity couples.

Tom Cruise (5'7) and Katie Holmes (5'9)


Mark Wahlberg (5'7) and Rhea Durham (5'9)


Nicolas Sarkozy (5'5) and Carla Bruni (5'9)


Mick Jagger (5'10) and L'Wren Scott (6'4)


Keith Urban (5'8) and Nicole Kidman (5'11)


Rod Stewart (5'9) and Penny Lancaster (6'1)


 Jamie Cullum (5'4) and Sophie Dahl (6'0)


Jeff Richmond (5'0) and Tina Fey (5'4) 


My husband is exactly the same height as me, which is why you’ll never catch me in heels.

I find couples like these to be adorable! Strange, odd and kooky, but still cute! Though what am I saying, at a whopping 5' 2, I don't think I'll have a problem finding a taller guy!

hahaha I LOVE the post title, hadn't thought about that one in FOREVER! :p

And even though I'm only 5'3'' I've always felt weird about guys being my height or even just a few inches taller but I think that has to do with my weight. I didn't want a guy being my height AND skinnier than me! haha

I'm short, 5'2" (and that's rounding up ;) and I still only go for guys who are around 6'. I feel sorry for those short guys! Tine Fey's husband is like a dwarf! I know that's mean but damn!!

Haha I LOVE this! Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are perfect together!
I think your height is nothing to be ashamed of! I'm always envious of tall women!

Ok, I USED to feel this way, but then I met the man I was to marry and he is shorter than me. We fall in to the Him (5'7) and Me (5'9) category. I was self conscious in the beginning but almost 15 years later I never even give it a second thought.

He loves when I wear heels. It took some getting used to. I love my short man, and I would not trade him for anything =)

I missed the earlier post. I had no idea you were this tall. I've never dated anyone shorter, but have dated guys the same height.
