I've been seeing a guy who is my height. I felt we get along so well but I haven't really felt that attraction to him. He was aware and we figured if we slept together and I still didn't feel better, that was that. It just made it so much worse, it felt like I was sleeping with a child because of his height/size I think 😭 I want to cut it off now...I'm going to hell for this, aren't I

I’m 5’ 7”, my girlfriend is 5’ 10”.

Some of us manlets still do okay 🥲

Manlets 😂

I had my height settings on 5’11” or taller on bumble and hinge, but ending up matching with my fiancé on tinder. He’s maybe an inch taller than me and I’m like 5’5. The moment I met him I knew it didn’t matter.
If you’re having to force attraction maybe the chemistry just isn’t there.

Do the man a favor and let him find somebody who won’t view him as a child

I mean, if you are both the same height then how do you feel he's a child and you're not? Is it just two little kids up past their bedtime? 🤔

Jokes aside tho I feel you. I'm over a foot taller than my gf and it took a bit of mental adjustment (and physical adjustment) to make it work 😭

This. If you’re trying to “feel” smaller/overpowered, etc. It really depends on the package. I dated a guy who was a couple inches taller but I had 50lbs on him because he was sooooo thin. That didn’t work well for me. My forever guy is probably an inch shorter, but is a prior marine and very muscular, like a Romanian power lifter, and things work out just fine 😆😍😉

This is weird. I think you’re viewing him through the the lens of what culture has told you is “masculine” and “attractive” instead of thinking for yourself. If you can’t think critically enough to move past what you’ve been told, that’s your loss I guess.

If there's little or no attraction there, it's not going to work. Doesn't matter how tall or short you both are. I really can't see how 'having a try' has made it any better - you weren't attracted to him before or after. Time to move on. If you were really feeling it, height really wouldn't matter. TBH I quite like shorter men!

I guess because I have dated men whose faces I thought weren't really attractive and was hesitant about too. But after we got intimate, the physical attraction came

What else do you like about him? People are attracted to the whole sum of another: body, mind, 🍑, everything.

Don’t proceed. Trust me, when you feel it for someone….height, weight, bald, cheesy stache….it doesn’t matter. The sparks are either there or they aren’t. And when they are, sex is fun AF!!! You’ll look at him and only see the love of your life. And it just keeps growing. This isn’t the right guy for you, so it’s not fair to either of you. You’ll be miserable and he’ll be crushed.

It’s okay OP. Your reaction to this instinctual, no judgments. Just as men find wide hips and big breasts attractive more often than not due to their instincts. Just be honest with the guy and end it as well as you can.

I think you just aren’t that into him. I almost exclusively dated taller guys until I met my current boyfriend (who fudged his height on Hinge 😂). He’s only slightly taller than me and I thought it would bother me, but it doesn’t at all. If you were that into him, his height wouldn’t matter. There’s no need to feel guilty about it.

I thought the same as you when I get my fiancé. I always thought I wouldn’t date anyone shorter than 5’10” but my fiancé is 5’7”/5’8”. He’s about an inch taller than me. I’m super attracted to his face though and he has a nice body even though he’s on the shorter side. I got used to it and honestly don’t care at all now! He’s an amazing man and I’m glad I got past the height difference. If he’s a good man and you are at least attracted to him somewhat, I think it can work out with time. But if there are things you don’t like about him past appearances, then I’d end it.

Cant force attraction OP! You like what you like and thats ok. He might just not be the one for you. Ive learned that if Im not attracted, I wont allow sex and then we know how that’s going to turn out.

Lol I’m 5’3 and never dated anyone below 6’1 so I get it haha. Tall men 🤩

We cool then. I’m 5’2. 🤓

I broke up with a woman who was taller than me. The sex was too awkward. Move on. You'll both be happier.
