If you're a tall woman or a short guy, it's likely you always add your height to your Tinder profile, automatically eliminate half the bar from your dating pool when going out, and get into heated debates about whether heels are *really* necessary for formal events.
But height doesn't really matter. It doesn't. It doesn't mean you're less masculine or less feminine for dating a man who's shorter than you or a woman who's taller than you. It's all about whether you're physically attracted or not, and height doesn't have to play a factor in that, as crazy of an idea as that may seem.
If that seems totally radical, look to these 17 celebrity couples as living proof that taller women and shorter men can make adorable couples:
Zendaya and Tom Holland
OK, OK, the jury is still out on whether these "Spider-Man" stars are actually dating. Multiple outlets reported they were getting cozy this summer, but both stars deny it. Still, at the very least they're close friends who will likely romance each other in the upcoming "Spider-Man" sequel, so it's worth pointing out that the two look damn good together, even though Tom is 5'8" and Zendaya is 5'10."
Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift
Joe Jonas adores tall women. Even when he was just a youngin, he was dating Taylor Swift, who's three inches taller than him at 5'10."
Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas
Again, Joe really, really, really likes tall women. After Taylor, he moved onto Gigi (5'10").
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Tom Cruise is 5'7," Katie Holmes is 5'9." Sure, Tom Cruise is a Scientologist and probably has a LOT of backward views (remember his crazed ramblings about antidepressants?) but at least he's not intimidated by tall women?
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
These people are so genetically blessed, it's easy to see why something as insignificant as "height" never crossed their minds. (Levine is allegedly 6'0'' and Prinsloo is allegedly 5'11," but the photo evidence seems to make it prettttttty clear that Prinsloo may actually have the inch-tall edge.)
Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh
Pharrell is on the shorter side (5'9") while his wife, Helen Lasichanh, is a towering 5'11." But forget about their height difference, we're more intrigued by the fact that they've literally never aged. What's next, sparkling in the sun? (Yes, fine, I was once a "Twilight"-reading teen.)
Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Jason Statham may always play the stereotypical masculine male who just like, loves cars and guns and babes, but he clearly understands that dating a taller woman isn't a swipe at his manhood. The 5'10" action star is regularly dwarfed by his wife, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (who's supposedly an inch shorter, but uhhhh).
