THANK YOU FOR THE SUBMISSION
This is me and my boyfriend. You can’t see our faces but you can see our height difference of 4 inches. I am 5’2 and he is 4’11. I have to bend down most times just to hug him, but you know what, we’re happy and we both love each other very much. Height doesn’t apply in love because I believe love is blind. ❤
**THIS IS LOVE. THANK YOU FOR SUBMITTING**
We really like your blog. Please update it. Thank you.
Dear Everyone, I so appreciate your loyal following of this blog. Unfortunately I get very busy sometimes with the businesses I run, and sadly, finding pictures, posting them, tagging them and answering your lovely letters takes a whole day at a time sometimes. I’m sorry I have been absent for awhile, but I’m doing the best I can…
hey, i’ve started talking to this guy who is a few inches shorter than me. maybe 1 or 2 & i am super self conscious about it (but working on it) ANYWAY, i was watching ladder 49 last night (super good movie) & the main couple in the movie is a tgsb! here is the best picture i could find. i even looked up the actors & they are 2 inches apart. (5’8’ and 5’10)
**THANK YOU FOR THE SUBMISSION**
Anonymous asked: So I recently started hanging out with this guy I have hooked up with on and off for 4 years. Hes asked me out a few times but I have always said no because of height differences. Im 5'11 and hes about 5'9. I hate to sound vain but its the reason I have never let us get more serious. I recently saw him again our bedroom chemistry is out of this world, and it has me questioning what I should do. Im just worried about what my friends and family will think when they see me towering over him!
First of all, 2 inches is hardly towering over someone, let’s be real here :) It sounds like your issue is really just insecurity within yourself. You’re afraid of doing something “out of the norm” which will call “negative” attention towards you. I would examine where that fear of judgement comes from and start working on eliminating those feelings. Also, you should think about picking up a book called “The Power”. (You can also find the full audio on youtube. Just search ‘the power audio’ and a bunch of stuff will pop up.) It really teaches you how to love yourself and what you have, which translates to better relationships and an overall more fulfilling life. I say treat yourself and do some self-work, it will make you a better companion when you are ready to give that guy a serious chance :)
mmurrs asked: 5'11" girl dating 5'7" boy here... I love your blog!! We've never had any problems with our height difference, I love how it makes us different and he always makes me feel beautiful, not giant or weird. I even still wear my high heels that I bought when I was dating a guy who was 6'4"! There's no height difference that's too "weird" for a relationship to work... as long as you love each other, that's what matters!
THANK YOU!!! This is a great story and I love your confidence! Thank you s much for writing in, you are an inspiration to all of us <3
Anonymous asked: sorry, i was the anon before who had the 2 parter about my high school relationship and i only just thought of this, i had a 'boyfriend' in year 6, my final year of primary school and i was definitely a little taller than him but nobody cared, he didnt care, i didnt care. i dont think anyone even took note of it! i guess my point is it really sucks how society i guess shapes us with these expectations of true love and what its meant to 'look' like (taller guy, shorter girl) :(
That just shows how much insecurities grow once we get into middle school and high school. Tensions are high, hormones are raging, people are trying to find themselves, and we get mistreated a lot. Just know that these few years will be over soon, and once you get into the “real world” people will care a lot less about what you’re doing, as they realize they have their own lives to worry about. Thank you for sharing, and thank you for your confidence :)
Anonymous asked: PART 2 ...i am not without my insecurites. im maybe 2" taller and i am not uncomfortable in my relationship at all, but on tumblr, movies the girl is always shorter and before we started dating, a friend used to always make fun of how short he was and it never made me doubt my feelings for him but it just got to me. but anyway, id just like to say thankyou for bringing to tumblr couple images where the girl is taller than the guy, it makes me feel more normal i guess. you're the best xxxx
People make fun of others to take the heat off of their own insecurities, so the only consolation when someone mistreats you, is knowing they are suffering inside, you ultimately have to let it go. You can’t carry that negativity around with you. Thank you for supporting this blog, your support means just as much to me, you guys help me out more than you know! <3
Anonymous asked: PART 1 (sorry its long haha) so ive been dating this guy for 6 months tomorrow and we knew each other briefly when we were little kids after being in the same drama group and then years later we had both been accepted into a selective high school and met again, both catching the same bus (we live in neighbouring suburbs) and from year 7-11 (after just under 5 years of solid friendship) we began a relationship. i love him and he loves me and we've given everything to each other but...
Anonymous asked: I'm only in 7th grade but I'm having a serious problem. I'm 5'7" and the guy I like is under 5 feet. Big difference. We both like each other because of our personalities, but it is really awkward in person. I feel like if we date that it would be weird kissing, hugging, holding hands, etc. what should I do??
Well I can tell you this, if you bring apprehension, negativity, fear, awkward feelings etc, into your relationship, that’s exactly what you are going to get out of it. If you expect it to be awkward, it will be awkward. If you except it to be weird, it will be, does that make sense? My advice is to take some time to hang out and get to know one another on a personal level, and see how you feel about each other, and how you feel about yourselves when you’re together. Do this without any expectations or insecurities, just be yourselves. You’ll be able to see how he makes you feel without his height getting in the way. If he makes you happy, then this is a prime time to begin your journey of self discovery, and building up your own confidence. Don’t ever be afraid to be happy, that’s all we have in this life… the positive moments.
ithara asked: Hey, I wrote to you earlier and I gotta thank you for replying plus I have a positive thing to share. It's been 6 months since my 5'9 boyfriend took little 5'11 me on a first date and was a perfect match. Today I said jokingly that am not gonna wear heals on our wedding and he said: ''It's cause of me'' and it really isn't because I never found them comfy and that's a plus, we are a plus. Oh, and he's 28 but looks like a teen xD Lucky me. I wanted to share a pic but don't know how.
Thank you so much for writing in! I’m totally with you on the heels thing. I’m getting married in september and can’t decide if I’m gonna wear heels or not. My fiance actually wants me to wear them, but I’m like you, I think they are adorable and all, but damn they suck, haha. I hate being uncomfortable! I’m so glad to hear your relationship is going strong :) P.S. you can send in a picture at tallgirlshortboy.tumblr.com/submit ! Thank you!
Anonymous asked: Currently dating a Blond Russian tall girl :) she is 5'11 bare foot and i am spanish latino man 5'8 , we love eachother and being with a woman taller than me makes me feel absolutely more confident and i love her long legs :) and oh yes ... she loves me :) the mix up of cultures and our appearance make us look different from the crowd, and this its translated into power.

Anonymous asked: so like, my boyfriend is 5'3 and im 5'5 , somethimes my friends make fun of me because hes shorter then me, and i cant help but to look down .. im guessing they only care about the looks . i love him, but i still get that feeling of weirness around us , you know..? any advise..?
My advice is to try and find some security and confidence within yourself and your relationship. You two have each other, and chances are that he feels the pressure as well. Band together, become a united front and stand up for your relationship! The next time someone has something negative to say. Keep your head up, look them in the eye, and politely tell them you don’t appreciate them degrading your relationship, as your boyfriend has many redeeming qualities that have nothing to do with his height. If they persist, physically remove yourself from the situation. Do this every time it happens, and people will soon learn that you will not stand for their criticism. Once they see they can’t get a rise out of you, they’ll move on to a new target.
