I’d Rather be Short no. 18: “tall” dates

This one goes without saying. Still had to say it. Dialog as follows:

Some turkey: “no offense, but…uh…you’re like, really short.”

Becky / short human: “Oh…okay.”

Some turkey: “At least all your boyfriends are taller than you.”

Becky / short human: “Oh…okay.”

It is true. Not that it should matter. If it does matter to you then this can stay on the list. If it doesn’t matter to you, then just pretend #17 doesn’t exist (like the 13th floor in buildings or Manifest Destiny).

If you are a short lady, you can date (or even marry!) a tall or short guy and he will 100% absolutely always feel like his favorite WWF wrestler and/or Andre the Giant.

*NOTE TO READER: This post does not qualify for middle school girls. For they will always be taller than all the boys.

    These make me laugh….especially about middle school girls. That’s a rough time. Happy Friday!

    Oh, yes! The “taller than your date” problem! Ran into that a lot. My husband is the same height as me.
