The truth about boys and dating
Still, when I met my first girlfriend in 2007, a ballerina who had recently moved from San Francisco, I was immediately taken aback by an overarching obsession with status and money.
She had a vision of the man she was going to marry: tall, dark, handsome, and a millionaire.
It’s pretty f*cked that this is our reality, but there's no denying it. Minus points if the suit jacket really from the boy’s section. He tries harder, and he's funnier and nicer than the tall douchebags who don't put in the effort. He may not be society's "ideal" height, but he’s a good boyfriend -- and that’s what matters most.
It truly blows that something so seemingly silly could be such a cause of discontent. Also, he’s small, so he isn’t exactly the cookie-cutter vision of masculinity.
Sometimes you just want to be thrown around in bed by a big, hot stud. You find yourself saying things like, “But he’s really sweet! He likes to brag about his career and how successful he is.
We love them, we hate them, and sometimes we date them. But even me -- a gal of 5 feet and 4 inches -- has problems. When you’re out in public and people look at you, you wonder if they're thinking that you're a girl with a short boyfriend.
A girl who is 5’9" is obviously going to think most guys are pretty f*cking short. Once you’re towering over him, he’s ready for you to get back down to his level.
