Measuring Up: Does Height Really Matter in a Relationship?

Posted on

Worried and wondering does height really matter in a relationship? If so, you are uncomfortable and need to decide for yourself if it matters or not.

The irony and cruelty of who we are attracted to never ceases to escape me. I was five feet eight in sixth grade, no lie… seriously. I either went to every school dance by myself or just dealt with the fact that every guy I could go with was about two feet shorter than me. So, I understood the conundrum—does height really matter in a relationship?

When I see couples where the girl towers over the guy, I am not going to lie. I think two things. First, I think she must hold supremacy over him out of sheer height. The second is “wow,” she must have a healthy sense of self to be secure enough to walk around with someone smaller than her.
