Thank you for empathizing with me. When the time comes, I have to explain it to my family in detail. It is nice to finally hear people not judge this whole thing like it is done with me usually. I guess I just needed to read this to feel and think the way I know I should.

Nope - height difference doesn't matter at all for me. I was in a long distance relationship with a really nice girl from Yorkshire and she was pretty short. It's heart and confidence that really matters the most!

I probably wouldn't date a guy who was shorter than me, but that's because at 5'2, they're hard to find! But I know plenty of couples where the woman is taller than the man, and it really makes no difference in the long run. If people care that much about the height difference in YOUR relationship, tell them to get uninvolved. A relationship consists of two people, not an entire society.

I know a couple with an average-height girl and a really short guy, but to cut a long story short I think they're awesome and I have a lot of respect for them. If people have an idea about how much affection there is between you and your boyfriend, and respect that, then they won't judge because they'll see how good you are together. I'm sure your family will see this in time. It can take a long time for parents to accept a long term partner for their child because you're still their little girl, they want the best for you but they can't tell whether you'd be happy with this guy in the long term. When it gets to the point of marriage they should understand that you're really happy, and support you. Best wishes, you sound lovely ^_^

I don't think it matters at all, when you like someone none of that bothers you! for me and my boyfriend it's the opposite, I'm 5'2 and he's 6'3, it has it's perks but overall it doesn't mean anything. On the bright side, when you guys one day share a car you won't have to keep adjusting the seat I'm sure you are lovely together and a 3in height difference is nothing
