Dating a much shorter guy
He wouldn’t dance with me at the school dance, he wouldn’t kiss me behind a cabin at camp; they all just seemed really skilled at walking away quickly whenever I’d make an awkward attempt at conversation. I wished I could be shorter so that these objects of my affection would pick me for once!
To be fair, I give her credit for going on a date with a Chinese man.
From the first time I noticed boys, I only noticed the shorter ones. You might want to whip out your hankies here because short guys did not seem to like me in return.
In case you were curious, young, short boys do not like starry-eyed giant girls.
There are many women who go to China and won’t even try — women who have already made up their minds perhaps even before they’ve set foot in the Middle Kingdom. I don’t even mind that her account of that date is largely negative and unflattering towards Chinese men.
She has every right to share what happened and voice her own opinions.
