I’m taller than my boyfriend. How can I help him get over it?

Women's Health (UK) - - K -

Spend five min­utes swip­ing through po­ten­tial suit­ors on Bum­ble and it’s quite clear that us­ing height to de­ter­mine the mea­sure of a man has gone too far.

But you don’t need us to tell you that dat­ing app cache doesn’t al­ways trans­late to IRL strengths. Still, body ideals and the stresses of fall­ing short ex­ist for both sexes, so be re­spect­ful of that – don’t just tell your fella to ‘man up’. We’re not ad­vo­cat­ing pan­der­ing here, but per­haps try to avoid air­ing amorous thoughts about the Peter Crouches and Dwayne John­sons of this world. Prais­ing the likes of Mark Wahlberg and Cil­lian Mur­phy (5ft 8in and 5ft 9in re­spec­tively) might be more aligned with your cause. But really, the best path is not to make a big deal out of it. So what if he can’t reach the top shelf at Tesco? He’s your guy for other rea­sons, so com­pli­ment him on those, and hope­fully he’ll get the pic­ture, too.
