What It’s Like To Date A Giant Nerd
Tall people are just the cutest. Normally words like cute and adorable are reserved for the small people of the world but, as a certified Tall Person (I have a certificate and everything), I can assure you that these words are just as true of human giraffes. Though we may seem intimidating, inside, we’re all just gentle giants and all soft, which makes us great partners in general. However, if a tall person is dating a small person and there is almost a foot gap between them, that is when things start to get tricky.
That is where Fishball comes in. She is a Malaysian artist, gamer and geek who has written several funny and heart-warming comics about living with her much taller geek boyfriend. Titled ‘My Giant Nerd Boyfriend,’ this series adorably documents everyday life and the situations that can occur, all while giving you a warm fuzzy feeling inside at how cute their very real relationship is.
Have a scroll through these comics but remember, a tall person is for life, not just for hijinks…
1. There are lots of things you experience in a relationship, one of which is pinching the others stuff. Hey, it’s cute to smell the same right?
2. If you don’t ask this question at least once when faced with something dumb your other half has done, are you really in a relationship?
3. Unfortunately, unless they make custom suitcases, you won’t be able to take your tall nerd everywhere.
4. They are always there to save you, even from yourself (there is a reason they are CHOKErs after all).
5. It may look cute on others but being swamped by the fabric is never a good look. You will get tangled and lost.
6. It’s never “just” an egg.
7. How wrong can one Internet hater be?
8. We all have these moments… right?
9. Tall people need more food; it’s just a fact. We’re not greedy promise…
10. Always support your partner through big life decisions, no matter what (just don’t support them selling a kidney…).
11. I know several people who would kill for this… somebody make it happen!
12. You will always miss them, even if you do get up to other things, it just isn’t the same.
13. One thing short people have over us… we have to work at this!
14. Us tall people are both human comfort, and pillow forts rolled into one.
15. When you’re both the biggest nerds you know (it’s adorable really).
16. Night is always when you ask all the big questions.
17. There’s always one shirt they love beyond reason (and you secretly love it too).
18. However, that can sometimes backfire… People, please work out with caution.
19. This is what it is like when you have a busty friend. You can fit a surprising number of things down there…
20. This just goes to show, life is not like in a manga.
21. No, believe me, it isn’t…
22. Men feel like they are made of sandpaper in the morning, and they use it to torment us.
23. However, ladies can easily get payback once they shave…
24. The benefits of dating a tall person are that there is no need to risk your life like this.
25. We all need someone to fetch us a croissant.
26. You will always end up doing the grossest things together, but that only brings you closer. Just get that video away from me…
27. One of you is the designated bug killer, and it isn’t always who you expect…
28. It just never looks the same when it isn’t on a skinny model…
29. Tall or short, one thing is guaranteed… you will have to wrestle with an umbrella every single time it rains.
30. And lastly we have this uncomfortable truth… tall people are always damn furnaces.
