Of course we're more used to seeing famous couples where the man is
Aside from him I've shied away from shorter men yet I'm still not sure of the root of the problem. My problem. Social conditioning that says the men should be taller than the woman? Undoubtedly. My insecurities about being so tall? Definitely. Fear of being ridiculed? Possibly. The fact that shorter men (along with the tall ones) show absolutely no interest in me? Ah, yes....
I have to also say that my pet peeve is seeing very petite women with extremely tall men - for god's sake, leave them for the tall girls!! Where's your sense of sisterhood?
I'll leave you in the very talented hands of Randy Newman who has a more controversial view than me, but all the same I think I should write a disclaimer here - I love short people. Some of my best friends are short. I just don't want any short men in my bed. (Although the phrase 'beggars can't be choosers' springs to mind here.)
