11 Things All Short Girls Who Have Tall Boyfriends Understand

11 Things All Short Girls Who Have Tall Boyfriends Understand

While all these things are great and funny, you know that your S.O. and you would still love each other no matter what height you each were.

Being a short person is hard because you can't reach things, people use you as arm rests, and everyone calls you cute then proceeds to pick you up. #donttouchme

Being short has it disadvantages, for sure, but there are a few things it's good for. Like when dating someone tall, you have all these cute quirks that people just think are adorable (and you do too). So, without further ado, here are 10 things that all short girls do while having a tall boyfriend (or girlfriend).

1. When he hugs you, he envelops you with love.

Those big arms and face planting his chest just makes everything feel right in the world. His hugs shut out everything and it's comforting. His tall hugs that press your check into his chest make you feel more safe and loved that you could've ever imagined. You love listening to his heart beat steadily against your cheek and you think about how much you truly love this person.

2. He reaches the tall things for you.

You never want to admit you need help and you rarely do because all short girls mastered climbing counters and other stable (totally not stable) objects by the time they were in high school but sometimes it's inevitable. You also need help with pickle jars because they get you every time but that's a strong guy thing, not a tall guy thing. I always mumble a "thank you" and then promptly say I could totally have done it myself, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

3. You have a "face" for when you want him to lean down so you can kiss him.

You tilt your face up and just stare at him, with your eyes closed and lips puckered. He'll get the hint. Either that or just climb him like a deranged monkey so you can kiss him. Then there is the reasonable thing, which is just asking him to lean down but that's the less fun option.

4. He calls you cute and for once, you don't mind it.

No one is allowed to call you cute...except for him. He doesn't make it sound like a lesser compliment but rather something so endearing that you can't help but be flattered by. He knows you're cute but that you're also sexy, beautiful, and one of a kind. He's lucky to have a cute, short girl like you.

5. You may be small, but you are fierce and he knows you'd totally beat him in a wrestling match.

Well, he lets you think that, at the very least. And sometimes, he lets you win but you still feel superior if he caves easily (probably so he doesn't hurt her royal tininess). If you are dating a small girl then you know that if she has older sibling, you need to watch out because she is the BABY and they will protect her, even if she can protect herself.

6. He asks you to do small people things, like fit into tiny spaces.

Can you climb up there? Here, let me lift you up so you can reach X, Y, and Z. Can you grab that off the ground? You're closer.

You are always being used for your size but that makes you feel useful and like you are returning the favor of him getting high things down for you. You always agree to do short people things because it gives you a sense of purpose and makes you feel useful to tall people.

7. The hand holding can be a bit off, but you both love it.

Your arm is bent at an awkward angle and it kinda hurts but you hold hands anyways because you love to show off some mild PDA. After a while of dating and hand holding, you guys figure out the perfect position of holding hands so that you both are comfy and happy.

8. Sex is more fun because us short girls are easier to move around.

We can be more malleable and this, by no means, is a shot at tall girls because ya'll got bedroom moves. Short girls can just do some of those awkward AF yoga-like sex positions...not that we actually do...but we can. It's good to have options that we never use. Missionary it is!

9. Spooning is the best.

Being the little spoon is one of the best feelings on Earth. You have all the cuddles and heat of the person you love so much radiating behind you, creating a pocket of love and comfort. It's honestly one of the best feelings you have ever experienced.

10. They come down to your level every so often.

One of your favorite things is when he leans on you for support. Honestly, your physical height isn't nearly a match for your emotional height because you are always there to love and comfort your man. One thing my boyfriend does is; he'll scooch down the bed and lay his head on my chest or tummy and look up at me. Our height disappears because he came down to my level for love and that means so much to me. You know you love when they cuddle close to you and use you as a human pillow because it shows they trust you with their emotions and their body.

11. Height actually doesn't matter.

While all these things are great and funny, you know that your S.O. and you would still love each other no matter what height you each were. It's moot, honestly. Because height #notimportant, but unconditional love and acceptance totally are. I'm five foot one and my boyfriend is six feet but even if he was five, five or whatever, I would still love him just the same.

Stop Choosing Your Short-Term Relationship Over Your Lifelong Friends

Friends can bring so much happiness to your life and nothing is worth losing that.


I'm sure we've all had that relationship where it felt perfect. We had the thought that the relationship would last forever.

Well, let me tell you to stop pushing away everything and everyone else so you can put your relationship first.

Your relationship feels perfect but it won't be. There will be times when you need someone else to talk to, and if you're constantly forgetting about your friends they might not be there for you.

My first serious relationship taught me this.

When everything feels perfect all you want to do is spend time with that person.

Even if this means canceling previous plans or making sure you're free every day. You drift away from the people you were closest to, sometimes without even realizing it.

I consider myself lucky. When my "perfect" relationship blew up in flames, my best friend at the time rushed to my house with comfort food and listened to me vent.

I'm so grateful I had someone there for me despite all the pushing away I did.

I know I put her behind my relationship and I never want to make the same mistake again. Having someone that stood by me for months of a relationship as my priority and still made it to my house to make sure I was okay was something I'm extremely grateful for.

Friends can bring so much happiness to your life and nothing is worth losing that.

Some friendships are more important than a relationship and it's important to never forget that. I know I have people who are there for me now and I'm extremely appreciative of that. When it's past midnight and I need someone to talk to, I know I have a good group of friends that I can chat with.

They've been there for me through some rough times and I never want to make them feel like they aren't important.

Good friends are really hard to come by so make sure you cherish them.

8 Reasons Finding A Couples Costume For Halloween Together Is Scarier Than Any Horror Movie

Finding a costume for your self is tricky on its own, but trying to find two that correspond is twice as hard


Halloween is right around the corner which means it is definitely time to start looking for a costume... especially if you're planning on going with your significant other. Finding a costume for your self is tricky on its own, but trying to find two that correspond is twice as hard. I've been through the struggle once in my life and now it's going on a second time this year.

Here are some reasons why finding a couples costume sucks (Halloween/Vampire pun intended):

1. Trying to decide what you both like

"Babe, how about this?"

"No that's not creative enough."

"OK, what about this?"

"No, I'll look bad in that."


2. Feeling like every couple costume has already been done

When you're searching on Google and notice that almost every couple does the same costume or their idea is just super cheesy and you and your honey don't want to fall into that category.

3. When another couple has the same costume

What's worse than a heartbreak? When you put blood, sweat and tears into your couples costume and another couple shows up in the exact same one.

4. It HAS to be cute/sexy

Basically if you and your partner's costume isn't sexy is some sort of way, you won't even be looked at twice.

5. It has to be social media approved

It not only has to be Instaworthy, it has to have a good caption.

6. The internet makes it look so easy

Every couple costume on the internet looks so perfect and so easy. Then when you try it and the costumes turn out to look like a two year old made them...

7. Quality vs money saver

Deciding whether or not you both want to drop $100 total on two costumes and look like stunners for one night or instead drop $20 on two costumes but look like you got ready 10 minutes before coming to the party.

8. Not having a set plan

So you and your BF/GF finally found the perfect costumes for the perfect duo... and then you realize that you really have no set plan for Halloweekend and you guys are just kind of going to wing it.
