Advantages of dating a shorter man

We're not a parade of endless online dating profiles.
They're chock full of confidence. They're more committed.
When I was dating around, I found the idea of dating a super-tall guy who had never had to ask a sales associate to help him get a box of Cap'n Crunch down exotic; but I'm glad that I settled down with someone who gets me on every level — including the level where I'm in a constant state of rage about how all jeans are too long for my legs.
But soon after we got together, he asked why I had so many heels that I never wore. It turned out that he loved me in heels — and also, he had made his peace with his height and his body, and didn't need me to change the way I dressed or the things I liked to make him feel more like a man.
Short guys know they are short, and very few of them will demand that you make concessions about it the ones who do are jerks, obvi. Short guys don't have a Napoleon complex Being short doesn't make you power-hungry, demanding, or give you something to prove. Sexiness, virility, and even old-fashioned machismo are not outside the domain of shorter guys. Plus, the idea that the only way you can feel like a "real woman" in bed is to be smaller than your partner smells like anti-feminist propaganda to me, frankly.
