Why dating a short guy is good

opinion

It took exactly two weeks from the point we started going out for me to forget about the fact that my boyfriend is significantly shorter than me. Three years on and people still comment.

She was right — he...

He also once forcibly pushed a dude out of a bar for feeling my arse. Signs you should push him off include: Interestingly, height has literally nothing to do with strength. When I went to take my shoes off to kiss him on his birthday last year, he said, 'No!

When I wear heels, I can put my arm around his shoulders and walk with a sort of moving human beanbag. He is a bit short, yes. Just like he is a public schoolboy posho and a film addict and can make a nigh-on arousing homemade guacamole.

Here, all the reasons why...

An advocate of flip-flops worn with socks. If you genuinely think that a man being shorter than you is a total dealbreaker, then you need to take a good hard look at yourself and stop being so goddamn immature.
