22 Things That Happen When You Date A 6-Foot-Something Man

Your lightbulbs get changed regularly, and there's always someone around to crack your back.

1. A lot of people will say, "Your boyfriend is very tall", ask exactly how tall he is, then list other people they know who are the same height.

You'll have a little glimpse into what life must be like for him.

2. Sometimes, when you go for a walk, a branch will hit your S.O. in the face.

It'll be funny unless it hits him in the eye, because that hurts.

3. You'll never have to change your lightbulbs again.

There's no point in you finding a chair to stand on, when your bf can reach without one.

4. Your days of umbrella holding will officially end.

He's taller, so it makes more sense for him to hold it. Like a butler, but a boyfriend.

5. And you'll never have to reach into your high kitchen cupboards either.

6. When you date someone over 6 foot, you can literally always wear heels without towering over them.

7. And when you do, you'll look like a super powerful couple.

Because you'll literally be able to look down at everyone else.

8. On the downside, you'll never be able to buy your S.O. clothes.

No matter where you look, you'll never find jumpers with long enough sleeves or trousers with long enough legs.

No matter where you look, you'll never find jumpers with long enough sleeves or trousers with long enough legs.

9. But you will be able to borrow his clothes all the time.

Tbh, they should make all jumpers 4 inches too long.

10. You'll find camping very tricky.

Very tall people just don't fit into £10 Argos tents.

11. And if you ever get a Ryanair flight together, you'll be forced to give your S.O. the aisle seat.

Same goes for long car journeys when the whole family have to fit into a car. You'll always be stuck in the middle seat, because your bf's legs are too long.

12. But on the plus side, you can stand right in front of your S.O. in any crowded space without blocking his view.

This comes in especially handy at gigs.

13. And he'll always be very easy to spot in a large crowd of people.

If you're meeting at the train station, or trying to locate him in a bar, you'll see him straight away.

14. Because his legs are so much longer than yours, you'll sometimes have to half-jog to keep up with him.

But you must remember: You are not a slow walker. You just have shorter legs than him.

15. And train journeys will prove difficult.

Same goes for theatre trips. Your boyfriend will end up cramming his legs into your space, and you can't be mad because he can't help it.

16. Sometimes you will stand on a sofa next to your S.O. to see what life would be like if your height difference were reversed.


Answer: It'd be weird.

17. And although hugging someone with very long limbs is lovely...

18.'ll never get to be the big spoon.

You're just too small. It won't work.

19. If your flat has sloped ceilings, your S.O. will struggle.

He'll hit his head a frankly ridiculous number of times before he finally gets used to it.

20. And he'll constantly be adjusting the height of your shower.

21. But hey, your S.O. will easily be able to pick you up and crack your back.

Sorry to be gross, but dating someone who can easily pick you up has its perks.

22. And eventually you'll decide that dating a tall man is the best.
