The Long…and Short of It

You’ve done it. You’ve finally met the man of your DREAMS! He wines you, dines you, loves you and respects you. He’s totally committed to loving, learning and growing with you forever and ever Amen. No commitment issue here, this man knows what he wants and what he wants is you. The relationship is everything you’ve dreamed of and more. Except one thing…it’s small. Very small. And no matter what those infomercials say…it ain’t getting any bigger.

We’ve all heard the saying, “It’s not the size of the boat, but the motion in the ocean,” but really, who wants to explore the seven seas in a dingy, when you can live it up on the Queen Mary?! The size of a man’s, ahem, fantastics (my granny’s word) shouldn’t really matter, but let’s face it, it does, just like for men, the size of our butts and breasts matter. But how important should these physical traits and sex in general, be in a relationship? If you have someone that is giving you the world and their only real flaw is that they don’t hang low, should you give the entire relationship up?

I assume the logical answer would be to stay in the relationship and find some way to get past his short comings (pun intended). Maybe buy a few toys and try to get your kicks during foreplay as opposed to waiting for actual penetration. I mean if this man is treating you right in every way and loving you despite your flaws, is it too much to ask to work with him and love him despite his? Is having to add a monthly allowance for AA batteries to your budget too much to ask? Personally, I’ve never been in that situation, but I’d like to assume that if I was, something as minor and superficial as that wouldn’t matter to me. I’d like to think that the love I have for this man would trump his lack of sexual prowess. Maybe I’m wrong?

How many of you have been in a relationship with a “short” man and how did you handle it? Can a relationship survive off of just love alone or is lack of good sex a deal breaker?
