I don’t know how to respond to that.) Now, I don’t usually mind, but occasionally I get quite pissed off and snappy.
His mate, for instance, once came onto me by highlighting my boyfriend’s height and talking about how he himself would go to the gym all the time and happened to be 6ft. I think the phrase, ‘You’re a c**t’ was also used, by me.
Since I’ve been married, there are a few questions people have started asking me about dating. Here is the first of two common questions people ask me about dating and marriage. “I couldn’t help but notice your husband is shorter than you.” This one doesn’t really come in question form.
It’s stated more as an observation with an implied question behind it of, “How do you handle that?
‘It’s just weird.’ Of course, that meant within a couple of years I was going out with a guy who was significantly shorter than me (six inches when I’m in heels, to be exact). While surveys like this are as bullshit as relationship dealbreakers – my boyfriend is crap at most domestic activities, and who knows if he’ll divorce loads or not – I’m glad that science has stopped crapping on short dudes. What do you mean, short guys can actually make good boyfriends? Afterwards, when he came off stage and nipped outside for a cigarette, my mate said, ‘Awww, he’s so small! I’d forgotten up until then, because, as you’d expect, the height difference doesn’t really make any real difference at all. The questions are usually along the lines of, ‘What does it feel like?
Some days Josh and I notice our height difference more than others.
He also once forcibly pushed a dude out of a bar for feeling my arse. When you’re both drunk and he’s at boob height, a short man will keep falling in between your boobs when he’s too drunk to stand up.
Partly because you’re tall enough to support him, and partly because it’s an excuse to put his face in your tits.
We all can adapt to these physical differences and learn our partner through time. “We have to overcome our pride for these physical things and be open to what God might have in store for us.
From my experience, God is always trying to stretch my perspective and works in ways that challenge me or that I wouldn’t expect.
