While dating a guy who’s a lot taller (and bigger!) than you has many major plus points, it’s not without downsides. Here are 15 things you can relate to if you’re dating a guy who’s way taller than you:
1. You feel safe when you’re with him
Especially in crowded places. His tall build means he’s able to see everything and everyone around him (when you can’t), so you never have to worry about some perv sneaking his way towards you or anyone unwelcome touching you for that matter.
2. Your friends can spot you from a mile away when you’re with him
He’s become a beacon signalling your location. When you’re dating a tall guy, naturally, when you’re in a crowded place, your friends look out for you instead of it being the other way around.
3. You fit perfectly into his arms
The world just fades away (or gets blocked by him) as you stand there with his arms wrapped around you and your head pressed against his chest.
4. Kissing him can be a bit of a challenge
The height difference between the two of you makes it difficult for you to reach his face, even if you’re tiptoeing. But hey, it’s all about working for that kiss!
5. You have to adjust the height of everything you share
The shower head, car seat, adjustable chair… you name it. There’s no escaping it. Although it’s a little annoying at first, if you’re together for long enough, it just becomes second nature. Tall Boyfriend
6. You never think twice about wearing heels
Even if you wear a ten-inch pair of heels, you’d still be shorter than him. I mean, that’s a good thing, right?
7. He comes in handy on a sunny day
Good news, girls! You no longer have to throw on your shades or use your hands as a shield to protect yourself from the sun. Your man is your personal shade with that tall build of his.
8. When it rains, you never get wet because he shields you from most of the rain
As a petite girl, rain tends to splash around you even if you’re holding an umbrella. Don’t ask why, that’s just how it is. And that’s when your tall guy comes in handy. Due to his long ass arms, he’s able to hold the umbrella much higher, protecting you from most of the rain. And chances are, he’d rather get wet than allow the rain to even touch you.
9. He looks exceptionally good in clothes
Tall guys look great in clothes because, let’s be real, most things look better on taller people. His jeans end perfectly at his ankles, his shirt sits perfectly on his frame and damn, he just looks sexy.
10. His clothes do not look cute on you
Unlike most girls who can turn their boyfriend’s shirt into a cute shirt dress, his clothes look plain oversized on you – and not in a cute way either.
11. Tall shelves will never bother you ever again
You never have to scramble on top of your cabinet or drag a stool over in order to reach things on the highest shelves. He just needs to stretch the tiniest bit to reach those things. Oh, the joys of being tall.
12. A solid 70% of the time, you can’t hear what he’s saying
When you both talk while standing up, there are a lot of “huh”s and “what did you say”s between the two of you. You can’t hear what’s going on up there and he can’t hear what’s going on down here, at your level, which can be annoying. Compromising is key and good communication between the both of you has a lot to do with the angling of your heads.
13. When he walks fast, you literally have to run
His one normal-sized stride is equivalent to your two huge steps. So, imagine when he walks fast – he might as well have asked you to go jogging with him. Tall Boyfriend
14. You never worry about blocking his view
You couldn’t if you tried. Your height makes it perfect for him to see everything, even when he’s holding you close.
15. Trying to take a half decent photo takes forever
Whenever you both try to take a photo, it’s usually goes like this: He tries snapping a shot only to realize that he’s too tall or that he’s caught you in a terrible angle. So, you decide to take the photo instead. But when you try, you can only hold the phone/camera so far (#shortarmproblems), and you barely fit both your faces inside the photo. So, finally, he hunches over and you tiptoe. Sound familiar? Tall Boyfriend
Having a boyfriend who’s so much taller than you can sometimes be a pain, but look on the bright side! If everything works out with him, you have a 10/10 chance that your children won’t end up blaming you for your height. Tall Boyfriend
