Shorter than me

I have fallen in love with a man much shorter than me. When I met him, it never occurred to me that I would have romantic feelings for him because there is such a big difference. I had always dated people taller than me.

We have gotten to know each other as friends for 2 years and he is a very special person. I think he likes me too, (more than friends.) Because of the height difference I felt safe to be myself and emotionally very open. Now that I realize that my feeling is that we are more than friends it feels scary and makes me want to cry. I think we would look like a very strange couple and I have never bent down to kiss any one. I feel shallow for these feelings.
