Why aren’t you allowed to be taller than him? My husband is slightly taller than me, but I’m happy to pull out some 6″ heels and be taller than him. It’s not a law or something lol.

You two look adorable! I’m about the same height as my husband, and it doesn’t bother either of us. I’m not a big heel person either, but i think it’s kind of fun to wear high heels around him sometimes, it makes me feel like some Amazonian super model πŸ™‚

I’m the exact same height as my fi, although he claims tonne an inch taller lol.  I love it, we camp a lot and since we are both 5’6-5’7, we can buy a shorter tent πŸ™‚ TBH,  I don’t wear a lot if heels around him,  but that’s because I don’t particularly enjoy the feel of wearing heels.  I had a lot if fun boxing up my heels and dropping them off at a donation box.

There is a huge height difference between my SO and I, 40 CM to be exact. He is freakishly tall (about 6 5”) and im well..quite small. If you think its a pain not beeing able to wear heels; i feel like I have to wear them just to not look like his daughter! Its awful πŸ˜›

Lol I genunely do not know how we are going to slowdance at our future wedding

My husband is 5’6 and I’m 5’8. Doesn’t bother me and makes kissing easier. I do understand not wearing heels a bit, the reason I don’t wear heels is because they are very uncomfortable. Not because my husband is short.

My SO and I are both 5’11”. Doesn’t bother me one bit! Some days I’m a little taller and some days he is, depending on the type of shoes we wear. My friend started dating a guy a few months ago who’s about 1.5 inches shorter than she is, and she almost didn’t date him because of it. Now, they are madly in love and she thinks she found “the one.” It’s silly to get caught up on things like height.

walkerqueen4014 :  I agree,  heels are uncomfortable. I used to always buy them and not wear them.  Now I just don’t buy them.   

I know I already replied,  but I did more thinking on this lol. 

I do have a sister who is 5’10 and married to a man who is 5’8. I think he’s a little sensitive about it and I’ve heard some insensitive comments from my brother about how short some of his brothers in law are(bro is 6’5). Yes bro got shut down quick and didn’t say crap like that again. 

Another sister is dating a guy that’s her same height,  5’9.

You know,  I hadn’t thought about it before,  but I guess the women in my family like gamers with nerdy jobs,  dark hair, and light eyes. Seriously,  ever serious bf or husband in my family fits the mold and I have 4 sisters  so there are been plenty lol.

Not all shorter though. My 5’11 sister is married to a man who is 6’1. 

I love that I don’t have to worry about tent height.  We can camp in my normal tents with a center height of 6 ft and be fine. Here’s a random honeymoon selfie.

I’m 6’1 and husband is 6’3 so there’s only 2 inches difference between us. When I wear heels I’m taller than him and it doesn’t bother me at all. My ex was 5’10 so in that relationship I was 3 inches taller. I’ve come to learn when you’re as tall as me it’s gonna be hard to find someone significantly taller. I think I’d only be bothered if the height difference was significant. Like if the guy was 5’9 or under.

There something great about being eye to eye with your SO.  I frequently dated shorted men.  My current SO is 6’2 and I’m 5’6, so I broke my habit.

my fiance is 5’3 and im 5’5. hes the shortest man ive ever dated. i thought it would bother me but it doesnt. mainly because he doesnt have that “little man” syndrome at all. hes always been short, he knows how people view him but he doesnt care at all. he tells me to wear my tallest heels all the time. it doesnt bother me at all BUT for our wedding i am going to wear flats. i dont want to tower over him in our pictures. on a daily basis though its quite nice. he has very broad shoulders and its very nive to be able to lay my head on his shoulders when were hugging. snuggling is actually more comfy as well. there are perks to a shorter man ladies! haha

My ex boyfriend was pretty much the exact same height as me. We are both about 5’9″. He was pretty insecure about it, he even told me not to wear heels because it made me taller lol. I tried so hard not to let it bother me, but I found myself always trying to bend my knees in pictures and hunch over so he appeared slightly taller than me. He was also thinner than me which bothered me too. I’ve always been extremely sensitive about my weight/size, but that’s a story for another day.

Current SO is 6’4″ and a big, broad guy. He’s everything I wanted in a man, including appearnce lol!

I think my insecurity about the same height/shorter thing is that because I’m 5’9″ish and not super thin, that I feel like a giant. Not saying I AM one, just personally feel like it. All my friends are petite and tiny and I’ve never had that feeling. Dating current SO, he makes me feel so little and petite! I’ve never gotten to have this feeling before so its a very welcomed one.

My fiance and I are almost exactly the same height (though as others have mentioned, sometimes one of us is a bit taller depending on the shoes!) He has told me he doesn’t mind if I wear heels, but I don’t like them anyway (in fact, I’ll be wearing flats on our wedding day, even!)

Back when we first started dating (seven years ago, holy crap! Haha) it felt a little weird being the same height, but I am totally over it now. πŸ™‚

I am 5’6″ and my boyfriend says he is 5’11” but I think he is shorter because whenever I put on 3,5″ heels I am a little taller than him. I think he is actually 5’9″ but I pretend that I believe him. Height does not matter to me:)
