Default Men dating women who are physically stronger than them

What do you think of this?

Do you think it goes against the natural order of things?

Men are bigger and stronger than women on average and certainly at the highest level, however I am amazed at how many girls tell me they seriously think they are about equal strength level with their partners.

If my girlfriend was a pro weightlifter bodybuilder or fighter I suppose thats one thing, but me personally, if for no real good reason my girl happened to be stronger than me..I would hit the gym 10 hours a day if I had to until this was rectified

Having a girlfriend who could legitimately kick your ass wouldn't be fun..even though most men are petrified of women for some reason..

Of course there is the ever under rated core strength and "strength from bearing children" that women often boast of over men..though in practical application I am not sure how much this would translate to other activities

I am also interested in the female perspective on this. I imagine that most probably would not care.

I tend to think the women I know who do think they are stronger than their boyfriend are probably mistaken..but I have no evidence of this fact. Maybe todays men really are a bunch of keyboard warriors/pansies.

No poll this time.

My female perspective on this... I don't know, is that a serious post?

I am rather strong for a female. If you're talking pure physical strength, I don't think I'm stronger than most men. My brother who is about the same build as me (not very tall and rather athletic) is certainly stronger than me (I know that because he's probably the only man I've ever tried to wrestle with lol). But some of my boyfriends were very skinny, and weighed less than me (and I'm not fat ) so maybe I would have been stronger than them, I don't know.

The point is, being ashamed or uncomfortable because your girlfriend is physically stronger than you is the same as being ashamed because she is taller, or makes more money, or has a higher educational level than you... It is just the remnants of old standards that try to make you think that if you do not dominate your woman, then you are no real man. This is stupid, though I can understand why it might be difficult to shake off everything society has always taught you to believe.
Women are now increasingly recognised as full-fledged human beings, and the natural diversity of individuals is being less subjected to the pressure of social standards. So my take is, norms are mostly oppressive. Don't spend your life trying to deliberately break norms (that's just "conforming in reverse"), but do not let norms worry you too much. You are very likely to be physically stronger than your girlfriend, but if your girlfriend is stronger than you, so be it, why should you care? It does not make you less of a man.

I'm not strong, but I'm still stronger than the girls I date. Them being taller is something I find annoying enough, never mind stronger

Yes. The holiday dinners were so delicious that my fiancé has to go to the gym a bit more often in order to be able to carry me over the threshold after our wedding.

Height would be the main thing for me. I'd hate to date someone who is taller than me.

Default Re: Men dating women who are physically stronger than them

I don't see the problem. I do not define myself by physical strength, and do not like to limit my options by these kinds of absolutes, so I'd be OK with a stronger girlfriend. Not that any physically stronger women have ever shown any interest.

Had this twice (and I'm not even short, 1.85), it really feels weird. And when they're wearing heels it looks especially ridiculous

Twice? That's must be special even for the Netherlands. I know a man of 190 cm with a (slightly) taller wife, but I don't think he tried it twice, so to speak. Btw - she never wears high heels....

Default Re: Men dating women who are physically stronger than them

My lady partner is physically stronger, and I don't have a problem with that - it means that she does all the gardening, decorating and furniture shifting while I sit in front of my computer posting on MTF.

I am happy as long as I can demonstrate my intellectual superiority on things like Trivial Pursuit and Mastermind.
