There are far too many people in the world – men, women, and everyone in between – who think that the man in a relationship should be bigger and/or taller than the woman he falls in love with.
Which is silly, when you think about it, because if you’re a woman of above-average height you’re crossing off a good portion of the dating population – probably full of some mighty fine men!
And, in order to crush the idea that shorter men aren’t sexy or that couples where the woman is taller look weird or out of place, these 13 couples are sharing their too-adorable pics together.
13. Those are some pretty people.

11. Nowhere to go from there but up!
My smol boy is my favorite. The first complement I ever gave him was that he was the least disappointing man I’d ever met, but I can definitely say that he’s the best as well ? pic.twitter.com/cfJGbvmvFh

8. The woman who kicked off the thread bringing the truth.
Happily married to my 5’5” king for 8 years while y’all are getting ghosted by 6’2” alcoholics with 7th grade reading levels but go off about how you only date tall men I guess pic.twitter.com/WzUL7ywk8F

My husband is taller than I am, but I’ve definitely dated men who were my height or just barely taller – and honestly, not having to wear heels is kind of a blessing!
Is your significant other shorter than you? Taller?
