Hugging, holding hands, and cuddling all require infinitely less planning.
Think about it, you’re almost the same size, so all your limbs just sort of fit together more easily with one another.
Of course I was self-conscious of that fact; I would slouch, hide in the back, do anything I could to shrink away.
I wasn't ashamed of being tall, necessarily—I just I wanted to fit in like any other kid.
Even though I'd accepted that I'd be taller than many guys I date, it was hard to see that they didn't return the sentiment.
But that guy's comment (and online dating in general) brought me right back to that awkward stage.At the end of the day, I want to date a confident man.And If a guy is threatened by my height or it makes him feel insecure, then I say on to the next one.First things first, I'm not freakishly tall, just above average—5 feet 10-1/2 inches to be exact.
Growing up, I was always the tallest girl in the class, the tallest kid in the room sometimes—a good foot above everyone else.
Don’t worry though, once people get used to you guys together all that will go away, and trust me, dealing with that will be more than worth it.
