    I'm not sure if I'd entirely count him

    as my boyfriend yet - we've only really been on one real date and kissed once - but it's got to count for something. ;) Anyway, I'm 5'9", and he's a bit shorter than me - probably 5'6"-ish? It doesn't seem to make too much difference, especially when I'm sitting, given I slouch...

    By Like An Inch

    When we first started dating, I always thought we were the same height, but I'm sure that he slouches while I stand tall, making the difference about an inch.  I love him so much though and although all my previous boyfriends have all been much taller (he's 5'7'') I...

    I'd Never Dated Someone Shorter Before.

    I guess I always sought out the taller guys because it seemed the right thing to do.  This time around, though, I fell in love with my best friend and he's at least 2 inches shorter than I am. Sometimes I playfully tease him about having to stand on his toes to kiss me, but...

    I Am Taller Than My Boyfriend

    i used to go out with a guy who was 5'1 and I'm 5'3. It never bothered me for the first year but then I missed wearing heals and having a tall guy to wrap his arms around me..I think if you think about it and it bothers you which it would do your relationship will never work...

    Loving A Shorter Man

    There are three major "unchangeable" differences between my boyfriend and I: age, race, and height. Two out of three of these differences are more common: he is the one who's much older, and he is white while I am Asian. However, I am four inches taller than him, which is what my...

    Short, But I Still Love Him <3

    I am thirteen and 5'3 and my boyfriend is fourteen and is 4'11. Sometimes it's awkward because I don't like to wear flats and I am from the country so I'm always wearing cowboy boots which makes me even MORE taller then him. It is really awkward at times, especially at dances...

    I'm 5'10" and he's 5'8".

    I've always told myself I would never have a relationship with someone who's shorter than me. The only thing that keeps with accepting his height is that our lips are at the same level haha. I don't know if I could kiss a guy hovering over them lol

    Well we were dating but ever

    since I became a nudist we broke up and now we just have sex. Basically he is my toy. I'm 6-5 and he's 5-3. I make him tell people he is 4-11.5 because I think it's funnier than way. We were dating and he did whatever I said. He would pleasure me for hours, cook for me, do...

    Taller

     I am 5'7", and that's not all that tall. My boyfriend of almost 2 years is 5'2", a good 5 inches shorter than me. I sometimes find myself wishing he would be a taller. He is very insecure about his height and always wishes he was taller, his height kind of bothers...

    Just By A Smidge

    I am just slightly taller than my boyfriend. On our second date, I put on a pair of super high heeled boots and hesitated for a second because I didn't want to tower over him and make him feel uncomfortable. But then I realized, I have a closet full of high heels and tall boots...

    This is my ex boyfriend,

    but it's a pretty hilarious height difference. This was two years ago from when I was 16. I am 6-7 and he is 5-3. I loved the height difference thing, I always felt so powerful and in control, but I would rather be with a guy who is like idk 5-7 to 6-3. Still way smaller...

    I'm 6 1/2 inches taller

    than my boyfriend. I can't imagine being happier with someone else. I am, however, very sensitive to other people's thoughts, comments, opinions and looks.

    Worried About My Height

    Not a Biggie!

    The first time I stood next to him side by side I was a little iffy about it. I'm about 5'9 and i'm pretty thin and long, so I look a little taller. He has a perfect muscular body and he is about the same height ( I want to say ) It's just that I worry thay I can't wear heels...

    Heh

    It used to bug me but after 4 1/2 years I hardly notice it now. I'm 6' though so it's hard to find a guy taller.

    I'm 17 and 5'9. My boyfriend is 20

    and he's 5'6. we're a new couple, just two months into our relationship and he's in the navy so we don't see each other often. I love him, and it doesn't really bother me that he's shorter than me, but I was wondering how to cope with the stares, and people's snarky remarks? I...

    Keep Or Get Rid Of Hubby?

    When I married, I was extremely shy, a classic wallflower. My husband who is much older than me was determined to get me to be more socially out going. Now he regrets it. I did not realize it then, but my husband saw the potential for me as a trophy wife. I was (and still am...
