I was embarrassed by the height discrepancy and I’d guilt her about it. I couldn’t contain my insecurities and the evening would turn from a fun and enjoyable one to a slugfest of animosity.
Maybe she’d opt for canvas sneakers or fancy flat shoes. She was really attractive and I had a massive crush on her. I’d want to talk to her before or after class so badly.It's funny…most people don't realize that Mark Wahlberg is a shorter man because he's, well, Mark Wahlberg (i.e., kind of a badass).Believe it or not, at 5'8″ he's actually about an inch shorter than his wife. But when she decided to wear heels it wasn’t even close. Any feelings of manliness or confidence I had would disintegrate. I’d be paranoid that I was being judged by every person we’d walk past. Any person pointing at something near us was mocking the gaping difference between my girlfriend’s height and mine. Why did I feel so intimidated and insecure around taller women? Why’d that all crumble to the ground when she jutted up 4-5 inches above me?
