Anonymous said: I would just like to thank you for making this blog! I have written in before asking for your advice, and this blog has totally helped me! I am currently dating the boy I talked about in my earlier post and he is SO sweet! I am curvy & 5'5 & he is smaller & 5'3.I am taking him to prom and I am kind of nervous about pictures :/ BUT he is the sweetest guy I have ever met and treats me like a princess. The height still kind of bothers me, but I'm going day to day trying to enjoy the relationship!
Omigod, horrible memories of my prom just came rushing back, gee thanks! lol, jk.
But no really, my prom was awful, my boyfriend at the time DUMPED me *at* prom because… you guessed it, height issues. I decided to wear heels, and was of course, towering over him, and I was pretty thick in high school, so I just felt like a giant. I tried to make it work but I guess my insecurities spilled over, because he got pissed about my complaining, and dumped me right there. Pretty traumatic!
My advice: wear flats if height is an issue, you’ll be much more comfortable than any other girl anyhow! And just enjoy yourself, don’t let any hang ups get you down, it’s your night!
