As I got older and began to like boys, one of the first things I noticed, sometimes even over personality, was their height.
The same height was fine, but shorter, absolutely not. Honestly, it was something I obsessed about, like many other girls and women in our society do.
How did this notion develop in our minds that there was something wrong with dating someone who was shorter? Does it make us seem less feminine?
Does it make them feel less masculine? There, in a small, messy, dorm room, wearing a baggy t-shirt, with no makeup, a boy referred to me as his girlfriend for the first time.
