I am 5'3 and my girlfriend is 5'8. What can I wear to bring me to her height? Something not noticeable. I don't want to look like a dragqueen.

Theres quite a few styles of boots with heels that are very masculine. Im sure theres more but this is all I can think of right now. Cowboy boots. Black motorcycle boots. Cuban heels. Dress boots with side zipper and heels Also some of the construction boots have heels and thick soles.

Dont know your style but cowboy boots kinda go with everything. They can be very casual or you can do the $$$ black snakesin ones with silver trim. Lots of guys wear them as a style statement so youd fit right in too.

If your not into the urban cowboy/village people look, what about 'lifts' ? They are devices you put in your shoe to give you a couple inches or so.

As a tall woman married to a man several inches shorter, I'd just tell you that if she's already your girlfriend, I don't think you should worry too much about it. If she weren't ok with the difference, she'd never have gone on the second date.

So if you do go for a lift, make sure it's just for you and not for what the world thinks is supposed to be...

Interesting thought on the kiss.

We just kissed like we usually do - people at the wedding knew how tall we both were.

For our wedding pictures, the photographer kept trying to come up with poses where my husband was above me - until we were both like - isn't going to look odd if he's suddenly taller than me in all our pics???

Hey, best of luck to you! Here's to a happy future!
