Anna Jong of China

How great is it that you have a date?! Wow! That's what you should be focusing on, not the height issue. But I agree, it's something small to stress over, and we all do that. First of all, let's keep in mind that this guy asked YOU to be his date, he did not ask a shorter girl. If he were concerned with height, he would have found a shorter girl, end of story. Obviously the height issue is not primary on his list of priorities, so neither should it be on yours. That said, I do think it's fine not to want to wear heels if you don't feel comfortable being way taller (though if you wanted to, I think it would be fine). There are lots of great flats out there, both in sandals and ballet styles.

When you're shopping for shoes, just look for the lowest shoes that you have available to you. And remember, an inch here or there isn't going to make a huge difference. If you can't find anything totally low, don't freak. Just look as pretty as possible, because that's what's going to make him the happiest--not you being the shortest! Make the evening about having fun together, not about who's taller or shorter.
