10 Reasons I Love Dating Short Women

When it comes to women, I’m not really super picky. I have my standards, yes, but if I find someone attractive then I find them attractive. I have one weakness when it comes to females melting my heart easily: short and petite.

“Winning” play fights

She will never know you let her win, and since you’re obviously bigger, you can easily fold her up and throw her over your shoulder. In the bed on Sunday mornings, there’s nothing like balancing her on both feet in the air to let her feel like “Superwoman.”

She will need you

While she may be strong and independent, she’s gonna need your help eventually. She’s vertically challenged after all. Any guy who’s dating a shortie will know that in the first few months of your living together, there’s absolutely nothing cuter than your girlfriend trying to reach the sugar on the top shelf in your house. Eventually, she’ll get tired of dragging a chair over and your laughing, and the only time you’ll be aggravated with her needing help is during football season.

It’s not awkward kissing them

If you’ve ever dated a girl as tall as yourself, you know what I’m talking about. If you’ve ever dated a girl taller than you, you know what I’m talking about. It’s just weird.

Legs

Most girls that fit into this category have short torso’s and long legs, or at least they appear to me. I love legs. I love cuddling on the couch in the summer and having my hand on one of those long legs.

When she is mad, she can’t hit you in the face if you’re standing

She just can’t. it’s awesome. And if she lands some good body shots, you can hold her away with one hand.

When she drives your truck, and won’t admit it, you know it anyway

As I’ve said before, I travel a lot for work. And when I’m gone, my Ford truck is a temptation for any short girl. I guess it gives her a sense of power to drive the beast. Immediately when you get home and sit yourself in your own truck to go somewhere, you notice two things immediately: your legs are awkwardly close to the steering wheel and your gas tank is nearly empty. It takes a minute to notice the steering wheel and mirrors have been adjusted too.

They eat more than you think, sometimes more than you even, or barely at all

This has been true on more than a few occasions in my experiences. On the first date she barely picks. It’s because you’ll find out later she has snacked all day. Then later in your relationship you two will go on an outing, and stop by her favorite restaurant at the end of a long day of fun filled adventure. She will order and devour a steak bigger than yours, a baked potato, and a salad. You will be amazed and terrified.

She’s so damn cute when she’s mad, most conflicts are solved or made worse because your laughing at her

It’s true. She’s standing there mad because you tracked mud into the house AGAIN and she has her hands on her hips, yelling at you. And all you can think of is a chipmunk pissed off at a large dog for chasing it up a tree.

They’re passionate

They are. Emotionally passionate about all of their causes. Be it animals, or the environment, or whatever. Especially over you. Maybe you’re their protector, or the night in shining armor for some reason only they know.

They’re beautifully self-conscious

As weird as this sounds, they think taller girls are prettier. They think they aren’t as attractive as other girls because they have naturally smaller breasts, or “no butt” or some such foolish reason. They spend little time or tons of time in their appearance, depends on the mood or the day. Either way, you remind them day after day they’re beautiful, and they love you for that too, as well as any other reason. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
