The first time I dated someone shorter than myself was very stressful. Nowadays I figure, chances are we’re going to spend most of the date sitting anyway, so he’ll have to deal with it. I might be jaded or just plain callous. But then again, I have no plans to wear flats for the rest of my life, so he might as well get the idea. Besides, Tom Cruise walks around with taller women all the time. What’s the big deal?
Of course, not all women relish the thought of peering down at their spouse just because they wore pretty shoes. As this tale tells.
