Tall gay men dating
They are, however, expected to align with their assigned gender at the expense of their own agency and desires.Our heights and sizes play a role in how desirability politics affect us. I always look for someone whose height is around 175 cm and above (I am 177 cm)the shortest guy I ever dated was 160 cm.it didn’t end up into anything, but not because he was short though, it’s just that after I dated him, I found that I never wanted to have a relationship with a man, so I broke his heart but I found my answer.

In a society where there are ideals of femininity and masculinity, it can be difficult for individuals who don't fit neatly into those boxes.
