    I've recently met a guy, but the only problem is he is shorter than me. I don't mind when we're together it doesn't even come into consideration. We get on like a house on fire, have a lot of things in common, and genuinely like each. I know for me he makes me really happy because I often catch myself smiling for no reason.

    Anyways we popped to the supermarket and everyone was staring which made me feel really self conscious that they were staring at the height difference between us.

    Do you think its odd for a girl to be taller than a guy? or have we come to a point in time where people don't care?

    Thanks for reading/answering.

    F**K what society thinks that a guy should be taller and the girl should be shorter malarky. If you like him and he likes you and it doesn't bother neither of you so be it!

    Good luck

    Have you heard about a Brazilian girl and guy? She's about 6'8 and the guy is 5'4 and they're engaged so....

    Honestly just because it's not common, it does not mean that your relationship is bad in anyway. I think you should ignore them

    I doubt that they were surveying your difference in height. Perhaps they were looking for the Cheese Isle, but definitely not caring about either of your heights.

    In reality you're insecure which is manifesting itself into Paranoia. Really unless he's 4ft you need to suck it up, because if you do get on like a 'house on fire' then I'm sure you can accept him for who he is.

    Don't hesitate, height is but a... measurement. If you like him I shouldn't eve worry you, it s a social construct that the boy must be taller than the girl. Don't deny your feeling because it is not "normal".

    What sort of difference though? A couple of inches, and there is no real issue. A couple of feet, then society might start to question it. Ultimately, as long as you are both happy, who cares?
