With the election victory of Nicolas Sarkozy to become the president of France, numerous jokes have circulated on his height (that’s too easy).
I heard that little Nicolas wears talonnette. Gosh, he must be really complexed about his height to have recourse to this artifice.
When it comes to height, we’re not equal at all between men and women. If you’re a man, you have to be tall, while if you’re a woman, it’s preferable to be tiny. A tall lady (above 6 feet) has to go through a lot of sarcastic remarks, and so does the short man. Unfortunately, mentalities will never change about this.
Some people really develop complex because of their heights. Some tall women I know are afraid of wearing heels, and always walk with an arched back. Some men try to compensate in other aspect of their lives, in other words, they are affected by the Napoleon complex.
Another form of the toadwhich never turns into a Prince Charming ? Well, maybe. It depends on which aspect of their lives the diminutive men want to overcompensate.
M., 53, is 5’3″ and compensate his lack of height by proving he can seduce every woman he wants. I asked him once about how many women he slept with, but he couldn’ t give me a precise number. “More than 500, so far” he said. M. has never had a stable relationship with a woman, but he’s the father of several children who barely know him.
Even if he tries not to compensate in his love life, the short man can be a toad too. T., 45, has dedicated his life to be the boss and to rule them all. This hasn’t happened without many sacrifices in his life, beginning with his marriage. His wife complains he’s never there for her nor for their children. She told me she tried several times to ask for a divorce, and that she had an affair with an another man because she couldn’t stand being alone all the time. But she never had the guts to let her husband down. ” At least, I know where I can find him: at the office, working” she said.
In addition, do you have a preference when it comes to height for your partner ? Personally, I don’t care, as long as he isn’t shorter than me (I’m 5’3″).
