i think that being a short guy when it comes to dating is a bit of a disadvantage especially when in a gay relationship. one thing that i think is messed up is that some guys use their height as a way of being the dominating one in a relationship. the taller guy becomes the thor type of guy and the short guy becomes the teddy bear where he pretty much can't do anything but be submissive. the taller guy will pretty much remind the short guy that that's his role. some guys like it, some guys don't. some guys like to have it both ways.
me, honestly, i'm a guy that i pretty much like to have it both. i like to dominated sometimes and other times, i want to be the one dominating. i think that it would be difficult to do that with a tall guy because he might feel that because i'm 5'6 and he's 5'10, 5'11, 6 feet and etc, that he should top and i should assume the role of taking the dick. plus you have some tall guys thinking that because so and so is short, they can treat the short guy like he's some sort of teddy bear, making him feel small and like a sex toy or something. i notice how some tall guys pretty much will be the ones to be aggressive too. they'll be the ones coming at the short guy like "you know you're mine right?". that sounds nice and all but at the same time, i would like to be the dominating one that leads the way though. i don't think that being short makes me any less of a man and i'm not the type of guy that lets height dictate anything. i treat everybody the same. i think that it would be much easier to be able to have a relationship where i can assume both the dominating and dominated role perfectly as well as my partner if we're the same height or if there isn't much of a height difference. i don't really pay attention to height like that when it comes to dating though even though i would have an issue if a taller guy tried to take advantage me because of my height.
