I want to know the following information: Is he reliable? If not, is he working his fingers to the bone looking for one? By the way, who’s going to care how tall anyone is as you celebrate your 25th anniversary together?
I also want to know if he’s a good listener and if he talks well about his friends or family because he should already have some good, close interpersonal relationships.

His mate, for instance, once came onto me by highlighting my boyfriend’s height and talking about how he himself would go to the gym all the time and happened to be 6ft. I think the phrase, ‘You’re a c**t’ was also used, by me.
‘It’s just weird.’ Of course, that meant within a couple of years I was going out with a guy who was significantly shorter than me (six inches when I’m in heels, to be exact). While surveys like this are as bullshit as relationship dealbreakers – my boyfriend is crap at most domestic activities, and who knows if he’ll divorce loads or not – I’m glad that science has stopped crapping on short dudes. What do you mean, short guys can actually make good boyfriends? Afterwards, when he came off stage and nipped outside for a cigarette, my mate said, ‘Awww, he’s so small! I’d forgotten up until then, because, as you’d expect, the height difference doesn’t really make any real difference at all. The questions are usually along the lines of, ‘What does it feel like?
’ (The same as if he were taller.) ‘Do you wear heels? ’ (No.) ‘God, I couldn’t do that.’ (Is that a question?
