Relative dating exercise 1

Meredith: I'm a trans woman who's 5'5", so average height for women in the States and shorter than most trans women I know.

Back when I identified as a gay man, my short stature was a liability, since the mainstream gay world is into tall, muscular guys.

There's nothing I can do about my height to resist these norms, but I can certainly say that I'm not a "small" person, aside from physically, and guys come to see that soon after meeting me.

However, some things are near inescapable; I wish I had a penny for every time a guy called me a "firecracker" as a compliment.

As far as dating a woman taller than me, I'm definitely fine with it, but I'm also probably guilty of preemptively thinking I'm "too short" for a woman taller than me and not giving it a proper chance.
