Some people have reasons to be constantly worried or feeling down. Others often feel like they are not worthy of this and that, or they hate themselves for something in particular.
One man who was well under six feet high always had trouble accepting the fact he was short. When he and his taller girlfriend had to go to a wedding, she said she intended to wear high heels. He was terrified by the fact she would look a lot taller than him, so he asked her to consider wearing sandals instead.
She brushed his concerns off, but he wanted to have things his way. He hid the high heel shoes, and she ended up wearing sandals after all. Once they got home, he returned them, and she was mad at him for hiding them. He was obviously not sure if he did things the right way or not, so he asked Reddit users for their opinion. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
Here is what the people think:
1. The dates
It seems that this person shared valuable experience and advice on this topic. Many people go through similar things, and we guess that acceptance is the key. It is what it is.
2. The insecurity
We guess that this person’s partner simply wanted to look her best, and he deprived her of that simply because he knew he would feel insecure. This is not okay.
3. The woman
It seems that this person literally poured his feelings into this post and no wonder about that. The person was also short, but he obviously did not let that stop him.
4. The body
Here is how a user pointed out the most serious thing about this situation. Nobody should do such things, and we guess that respect is far more important than one’s height.
5. The girlfriend
This is a post that suggests a different side to the story. If this happened, then the person would probably think about how this feels.
6. The months
We know that some people try to control their partners in certain ways, but there is no doubt that such a thing would be unacceptable, regardless of the reasons behind it.
7. The woman
Now, this is what we call support. No support for this person or what he did, of course, but for the freedom of people and their ability to do what they want.
8. The heels
This user suggested something that just might happen. If this man does not start appreciating his girl more, she just might decide to leave him.
9. The remark
We know that some people would probably think of a reason to justify what this man did, but you can see that most people on Reddit think he did wrong.
10. The posts
We can all agree that this is not a rule people need to follow in most cases. It seems that the main thing in a relationship will always be having mutual respect.
11. The therapy
We guess that the person who posted the story asking if he did wrong described well enough for us to understand he has a problem that needs to be tackled by a professional.
12. The characters
If someone really wants others to do what they expect them to, then there is a problem. Such a desire often leads to situations such as the one discussed here.
13. The insecurity
This is also true: if a person feels like he is too short, he probably needs to do something about it that is not disrespectful to others. Of course, almost no one would do this.
14. The dignity
People, in general, need to understand that physical appearance may matter sometimes, but it is by far not the most important aspect of any person’s identity.
15. The single person
Yes, this is what really happened. This man managed to make his partner feel miserable simply because of his own insecurity, and this is a huge no-no.
16. The heels
Here is something that not everyone probably noticed in the original post. The man who told the story also mentioned that he made his partner lose all the other high heels she used to wear.
17. The steal
Many people would probably not refer to this as stealing, but it was exactly that. The man stole the shoes from his girlfriend. It is kind of different from just hiding them.
18. The childish behavior
We guess that this might seem to be a post that some would accept as excessive, but everyone is free to comment however they please, and this is why the man posted his story in the first place.
19. The control
Nobody should ever try to control their partners in any kind of way, not to mention that they should never be allowed to do it, even if they tried.
20. The height
One’s height should never be an issue, and we have seen how many relatively short people have zero issues about their height. It is all a matter of attitude.
21. The heels
Some people seem to wonder how would someone be able to do such a thing only for the sake of them not feeling insecure. This happens a lot.
22. The marriage
This is probably the closest example one could give, speaking from personal experience. Nobody should try to control their partner because of their own preferences.
23. The question
This post describes things as simple as they can get. Once the man asked his partner if she would be willing to let go of the high heels, he should have accepted the answer.
24. The hope
This is how one user decided to go straight to the point and stated that the woman from the story needs to find someone better.
25. The short person
It seems that having such problems could become a thing of the past. The only thing stopping this person from being happy is accepting who he is.
26. The responsibility
We guess that you could say what this man did is not acceptable because it was an attempt to transfer the responsibility for his insecurity to someone else.
27. The right
There is no doubt that people out there sometimes think they have the right to do what they please for the sake of achieving a goal. This is not the way to go.
28. The dating
Yes, this is one extremely good point to bring up: the woman obviously dated the man for a long time, meaning that his height was not a problem for her.
29. The shoes
Most people who read this story would probably think the exact same thing. Insecurity like this can only cause problems in the future.
30. The wife
Here is some food for thought: when you consider how many men out there are this short and have no problem with it, then you realize such behavior is unacceptable.
31. The autonomy
Yes, this is absolutely true, and we know that there are people who would immediately walk away after such an episode if they were in the woman’s shoes.
32. The other date
Maybe if this man continues to feel insecure with a higher girlfriend, he should try to find someone else who does not make him feel this way.
33. The smaller person
We are quite certain that this person learned a valuable lesson after reading hundreds of comments that look like this one.
34. The body
Everyone has the choice to look like they want, and this is something we need to remember when we are in a relationship.
35. The change
This is a nice comment to wrap it all up, and we cannot agree more.
