Quite why human beings opt to use strange collections of sounds and half-words to summon one another remains a mystery, but nonetheless, it’s a fact that in every far-flung corner of the world, you will happen upon doe-eyed couples calling each other things like ‘Bae’, ‘Piglet’ and, if you’re really lucky, ‘Squidge Muffin’, or something equally monstrous.
If you’re new to the whole relationship thing, or you’re just a little uninspired when it comes to conjuring up cute names to call your boyfriend, fear not; below is our definitive guide, written by an actual human man!
We love them, we hate them, and sometimes we date them. But even me — a gal of 5 feet and 4 inches — has problems. When you're out in public and people look at you, you wonder if they're thinking that you're a girl with a short boyfriend.
A girl who is 5'9″ is obviously going to think most guys are pretty f*cking short. Once you're towering over him, he's ready for you to get back down to his level.
He had ripped muscles, so he looked like one of those short, heavyweight wrestlers from the movies. Here are 11 very real truths about dating a guy who is shorter than you. Him: “But babe, you look so sexy in high heels.”Me: “I know, but they're so painful and annoying.”What you're really thinking is, “F*ck no.
He wasn't exactly shorter than me, but he had maaaaaaaybe an inch on me. There's nothing wrong with dating a guy who's shorter than you, but it does come with its difficulties. He'll constantly ask you why you always wear flats.
When I say “short,” I'm talking like 5'7″ and under. He may have a beautiful face, killer abs and a stellar personality, but all you or anyone else can seem to focus on is that your boo is a tiny little munchkin.
I'm not wearing heels so I can be a solid 5 inches taller than you (and that's in kitten heels).” When you do wear heels, he immediately realizes the error of his ways.
You have to put away your heels and just resign yourself to wearing ballet flats for all eternity.
Bad news if he belongs to the tribe of baggy linen pants and ribbed turtlenecks. You’ll have the pleasure of explaining particularly American concepts such as Snooki, Shamu, Spring Break, Texas and Pizza Bites. He’ll comment on your outfits (positively) and discuss style in general more than an American boy might. He’s probably well-traveled considering that living in France allows you the advantage of hopping over to Italy or Spain for a weekend. Unless he magically learned English from watching episodes of : Angry/hungry, happiness/a penis. He’ll probably do all he can to give you respect and treat you like a princess.
I tend to find these confused moments to be hilarious and endearing.
Coming up with cute names to call your boyfriend may seem a fun and romantic task, but be warned: the road to the perfect pet name is fraught with peril.
If you want to know how to compliment a guy, a good starting point is to realize that there’s a vast gulf between what he will be comfortable with in private and in public.
