MISSED CONNECTION: I'm in love with my best friend but I know we will never be because I'm taller than him and he said he would never date a tall girl.
I never thought I could love and hurt this much at the same time.

  1. He's shallow and you're better off. Would you want to be with someone who would turn down something potentially awesome for such a silly reason? I'm a guy (albeit above average height), and I couldn't care less if my girlfriend were taller than me.

    1. I fucking hate this view. No, it's not shallow. You can't date someone if you aren't attracted to them. You can't MAKE said person attractive in your eyes.

      Just because you will take any pussy you can get doesn't mean the rest of us have to.

    2. You don't know how it feels to be a manlet.

    3. 1.a: If the only reason you're not dating someone is because they're a bit taller than you, that doesn't boil down to attraction, that boils down to insecurity. Rationalize however you want; you're shallow. The way you went from 0-10 so quickly on the anger scale shows this is a sore point for you. I'm sorry you dislike yourself so much.

    4. ^Shallow. There's more to love than just looks. None of that will matter once we're old. Don't get into a serious relationship if you're just looking for a quick and dirty hook up. The aftermath is a bitch.

    6. 1. Not everyone has to abide by your beliefs. Their is nothing wrong with wanting someone of same or lesser height. It could simply be something about say hand holding length (as is often a problem with myself). I don't want to cock my arm wierd to hold your hand or cuddle. Stop judging others and trying to sound smug on omguw. You sound like a silly SJW.

    7. 1.f. First of all, this is a board for current and former university students. Your atrocious grammar and spelling suggest you are neither. Second, I did not say everyone has to abide by my beliefs (reading comprehension, please). Someone who would throw away a great relationship for something as silly and trivial as a couple inches (or weird hand-cocking, whatever that is) is shallow. My opinion. Take it or leave it.

  3. Don't worry OP, eventually you'll invest your heart in a real reciprocal romantic relationship for years and then have it mercilessly ripped out of your chest. Enjoy the unrequited crush-love while it lasts and know there is a better, deeper more awesome love out there to disappoint you.

    What I mean is, your heart is aching but know you'll get over this one.

    Yearning for something you can't have is fruitless and you might be missing out on something better because you're distracted with shorty.

    1. ... I have never heard a more eloquent description of my romantic cynicism.

    2. Many thanks 3a.

      Maybe two romantically jaded hearts like ours could really be a match. We already have so much in common - the mutual anticipation of waiting for the bottom to drop out, the aligned belief system that the other will inevitably leave, the shared disgust of RomComs sickeningly false portrayals of love. We could totally make things work until they don't together.

    3. I am not 3a. but your words/outlook resonated with me also. I had to smile my inner painful smile.

  5. He probably got the hint that you're into him and said that so you stopped thinking about it.

  6. go out with handsome, tall men then?

  7. Could be he just feels insecure about it and actually might be willing to date taller women if given the opportunity. If he is shorter than average he might have got the idea that taller women are unavailable to him, as a rule.

    As a shorty myself it took me a while to realize that I could (and eventually did) date women taller than me. Before making that realization I didn't even try.
