Dating bigger girls
A few of the women I asked shared a similar, imprecise equation, which factored height and width into the math of not feeling bigger. Despite simply wanting, honest to god, someone who is funny and caring and, okay, yes, has a nice haircut, I can’t help but do a certain sexual attraction calculus around how our bodies relate to each other.
It’s hard enough to take a step into the unknown to utter a “love me?
Thanks to the patriarchy, faux-evolutionary arguments and racial bias, when it comes to romantic preferences, it’s irresponsible to simply throw our hands up in the air and say, “Well, it is what it is,” or, “I can’t help what I like.” There are serious implications below the surface.
As Ann Friedman wrote in : “Women have internalized the message that it’s better for us to be smaller.
And maybe we just end up missing a lot of great opportunities with great people.”That’s exactly why, in an effort to bring as many great people my way, I’ve decided to stay open.
Not just when it comes to someone’s height, but to all the arbitrary expectations we put on dating.
