This man should (and probably does) love you the way you are and loves you the most when you feel best about yourself.
If you feel best in your heels, wear them with confidence and trust that your date is just elated that a bombshell such as yourself has chosen him.

Societal stereotypes dictate that in heterosexual romantic partnerships, a man should be bigger and taller than his female partner.
I’ve lost count of the number of female friends who have stroppily flung their phones down on pub tables, wailing “I hate online dating, I hate it! ” when, after a little probing, it becomes clear that the "someone" they’re searching for needs to be 5”10, minimum.

When I went on my very first date with the man who is now my boyfriend, I remember being a little taken aback by the fact that, in my modest two and a half inch heels, I could see clearly over the top of his head.
On the other hand, with tall women, since only 15% of men are over 6 feet tall, it would stand to reason that a 5’11” woman would be well served to open up to shorter men, instead of insisting that he has to be 6’3′, because that’s how tall she is in heels.
