I am not quite sure where the trend of " your boyfriend has to be taller than you" started. But me being as tall as 1.76cm / 5´9, I often hear from people that if I tell them I am seeing someone, or talking to someone they always ask me " Is he taller than you?" And I am just thinking to myself like" what does it matter?" truth is; Yes! It does feel good to have a person that it taller than you, who can hug you from behind and that I can wear my 10-16cm high heels with, but why does height has to be so important?
They don't ask me if he is kind to me, treating me with respect, the most important thing for them is to know how tall he is, and how he looks. I remember once, a friend of mine showed me a guy she was dating, she only showed me one photo, "why?" I am thinking to myself. Oh, because that was the photo he looked his best. I mean, looks and height these days has gotten so important that people forget the quality of a relationship and what it should be like. A sweet, kind and loving heart, that's what you should look for in a relationship. Someone you can be happy with and feel comfortable around. Someone to talk to everything about, and that will always be there to support you. People! You need to wake up. If you guys are the same height or he is only 5 cm taller than you, so what?! You might think that it doesn't look as cute when you walk in public if you're taller than your guy, but again, who cares?! It is the quality of the relationship that matters. How you guys feel about each other, how happy you guys are together. Nothing else! I mean, it is only the two of you in the relationship right? Not you, him and the rest of the world.
