  1. Not current, but I have had this. I am 5’8″, girlfriend was 6’0″ (technically 5’11” and 3/4). More than than, I was like 140 lbs. at the time, and she was near 200 and decently muscular. The size difference was pretty noticeable.

    Yes, people do talk. In my experience, it was mostly college girls (we lived near a university, so it’s not like they hunted us down), and drunk older men. Old guys were the worst. The girls might point you out, or occasionally snicker, but the dudes seemingly took it upon themselves to try to destroy the relationship with lame, teen movie villain jokes. “Hey, it’s cool that you hold hands with your little brother!” “You sure your son old enough to be here [in the bar]?” Bars were where we got the most comments, from anyone, good or bad. I’m sure people noticed when we were walking around the mall together or whatever, but nobody ever said anything in earshot about it.

    I was pretty insecure at first, mostly because of the peanut gallery comments. She literally never even mentioned it after the initial conversation we had, and never treated it like it was a big deal, which helped me also think of it like it wasn’t a big deal. She also never wore heels, though I don’t know whether that had anything to do with me — she claimed she had flat feet, and I never saw her in heels before or after we were in a relationship.

  2. I tried this once when I was younger. Tall women tend to really want tall guys so you have a lot of them showing interest.

    We were both 6 foot, if she wore heels she was taller. The whole thing just felt weird for me as I’m not used to look up at many people in general let alone partners. Personally not a fan but I suspect there will be guys into this.

  3. This happened to me q while ago. I am 6’3, and she was probably 6’5 with small heels. We did get looked at strangely, but it didn’t feel hostile or judgemental, more so like people just noticing us for being different.

  4. Twentysome years back I dated a girl who was 6′ even; I’m 5’6″. It was fun. I suppose people noticed us but we were both weird in different ways and really beyond caring what other people thought about it.

  5. I’m a little under 6’1 and dating a girl that’s 6’4.5 and it doesn’t bother me in the slightest. In fact she wears high heels too, people do frequently look but I never feel any malice behind it. If anything people move out of our way when we walk down the street, it’s like Moses parted the red sea lol.

    My boys will make some jokes from time to time be we constantly rip each other, so it’s all good fun.

  6. I’m not in the relationship anymore but she was a few inches taller than me. I’m 5’8” and she was 5’10-11”. I didn’t really think much of it but I’d be lying if I said I never thought about. We did have similar shoe size and I’m size 12 though. Dated for 5 years.

    Didn’t break up bc of height though.

  7. I’ve done that in the past. Got a few funny looks if shr was in heels that may have been the height thing or may have just been her eccentric style and nothing to do with me.

    It’s not a big deal.

  8. I’m 6ft and my gf is 6’6. It does not bother me a bit and nobody has given me flack for it either. The only weird looks we really got was when she and I go jogging and she wants to carry me on her back for extra gains and I’m going “woooooo” like Sterling Archer.

  9. I’m 5′ 9″ and my GF is 5′ 11″. Never felt self-conscious about it, even when she wears heels. Never been judged before either, and I haven’t noticed any weird looks.

    If anything it makes you come across more confident as long as you don’t appear or act insecure.

    Added bonus is boobage much closer to your eye level.
