He is 4 inches taller and sometimes kissing is a bit awkward.
Should I buy a yellow pages?
No but apart from dump him seriously what shall I do?

Suck it up buttercup.

Life isn't always easy.
So get over it. If you really liked him enough to get into a relationship with him in the first place. This should not be an issue.

having a boyfriend should be about being with someone who makes you happy and who you have fun with, his height shouldnt matter, if its a bit awkward to kiss just have a laugh about it and move on, theres loads of people who'd kill to have a bf who cares about them, focus on personality over looks and you'll have a lasting relationship

4 inches? lmao.

4 inches is nothing, I knew a guy who was 6'4'' and he had a 5'1'' girlfriend, now that is a real problem.

4 inches really isn't that much so I'm confused :s. My bf is 6 ft 1 and I'm 5'4 and its never been an issue. Maybe just sit and kiss lol

You're only just noticing after entering a relationship with him? :confused:

It's usually one of the first things I notice about a person.

4 inches? I've kissed a guy who's about 10 inches taller than me, I really don't see how it's that much of a problem :confused:
Most people would probably just look past something like this (yes, I get that people have preferences in terms of height, I mean at this stage), you obviously like him a lot - he's your boyfriend after all.

Why do you go around making these frankly ridiculous assumptions on what you think women 'are'? I keep seeing you commenting 'if this was this way women would freak lol double standards' and similar - when in fact, no, I don't think I could agree to the core of what you have claimed all women 'would' do. You're so busy thinking that is what this vicious gender must do that you're missing the whole point - the majority really wouldn't. You obviously don't know very many women at all. Why don't you base on what you see rather than predicting daft things... why not give 50% of the population more of a chance than this? I genuinely feel sorry for you needing to generalise and presume these things all of the time in such a hateful way. :s Can't be fun? Feel free to ignore.



To the OP - if you're finding his height unattractive, that's a different issue. If the problem is simply you have to reach to kiss him, it'll be something you get used to, and something that can be fixed with a little bit of thought to what types of shoes you're both wearing. It's not really a huge deal. P:

4 inches, seriously? That's like ... nothing. Nothing at all.

And anyway, if you like a guy, why on earth does his height matter?

Damn lol that block of text was like an attack

I'm sorry if I've come off this way and had no idea I was that bad hahaha , definitely not the only one though.

I didn't generalize half the population , I was simply addressing the point that a lot of girls (heck most i'd say ) place importance on a guy being taller than them , so I see no reason why they should go on like height isn't important.

Thats the thing though , I do base it on what I see . Obviously not going to be the case with every female but im generalizing based upon what i've seen . I admit this is quite foolish . but please don't be offended it was merely jest.

I don't hate anyone :rolleyes: your over reacting , just because I claim sometimes there's a difference between what girls say and think , it doesn't make me a misogynist. For the record this isn't exclusive to women , men also do it.

Apologies, it probably was a little harsh. But I really have seen a few of these comments from you and they are just a bit insane, they instantly just make you seem very anti-women! If there's really such a difference between what you're saying and what you mean, you need to look at how you're phrasing these nagging comments. It's just sad to read.

You're misunderstanding, though - this isn't really about height in terms of attractiveness, it's just a practical issue about kissing. Honestly, if it were about simply being attracted to him and everyone responded with 'get over it he's tall it's perfect' or something - yes, then I would see some cause for frowning at that. But even then, many, many women will respond with 'get over it' to a case with a shorter man. I wouldn't in either situation; not being attracted to someone is just fair enough.

I haven't called you a misogynist. (; I was careful not to haha, it's pretty much a death wish to say that on TSR even if it's for Jamie. I appreciate you aren't 100% the character behind all these comments. But seriously, do consider how they come across next time. It's just saddening. Most women I know won't adhere to all these double standards that you think they would live by. I certainly wouldn't, which is why I 'over' (debatable) react.

Easy, wear 4 inch heels!

My boyfriend is a whole foot taller than me and it's never been an issue for us so I don't see why 4 inches would be.
