You + Me = Us, Dating Height Calculus

Yesterday I wrote Advice For The Vertically Challenged and was surprised by some of the comments. Many quite fairly pointed out that perhaps my definition of “short” should be revised, or that I should be clear that just because I feel short at 5′ 5″ does not make this height or anything bellow it qualify as “short.” What really struck a chord with me, however, were comments concerning height differences when it comes to dating.

Are You Afflicted With Modern Female Dating Disorder?

We used to think this was normal, but now there’s a name for the “disorder”: Modern Female Dating Anxiety.
