Dating someone who is shorter than you
Also, I have a women's studies degree and I say it's whack.Being obsessed with men's height — in a way that you'd never obsess about any other one of their qualities — is bad for women, bad for dating, and reinforces a society that says physical traits we can't control are more important than who we really are or what we achieve.Listen, what turns you on is what turns you on, and if you can really only get a wide-on for dudes over six feet, that's a-okay.But if you're only into tall guys, I would urge you to think about why you'll only date tall guys.A 2012 survey of college students found that 89 percent of women were only interested in partners taller than them (while 47 percent of men were open to dating a woman who was taller them).48 percent of women dating online are only interested in men who are taller than them, and a study of online dating in the New York City area found that men who fell below the average American male height of 5'9" typically had a less than five percent chance of having women reach out to them.As someone who falls two inches short of the average female height, I never even thought that dating a guy my height was an option worth thinking about. Today, I'm about to celebrate my fifth anniversary with a wonderful dude who is roughly my height, and I would like you to know that height ain't nothing but a number.

I've encountered a lot of women who say that they only want to hook up with taller dudes because they want to feel "tiny" and like they're being "ravished" in bed.
