Wiens has a Ph D in Physics, with a minor in Geology.and the other guy I'm just chubbier but I still look comparitivley smaller...Please tell me ladies, how you got past the fact your husband/bf was shorter/smaller then you. I had several boyfriends who were shorter than me and I hate to say it but I never could get over the 'sisterly' feeling I would get leaning down to kiss them.Saturday, September 09, 2006, PM My boyfriend is shorter then me and it's just not a problem...

And I have to work with that -- I can't make the chemistry happen if it's just not there.When you go to the gym and see guys casually lifting weights, jogging on the treadmill, and basically watching TV, do you ever just want to shake them, and say, “Listen, there’s a more efficient way to do this! Well, clearly I am a proponent of interval training.I think it's a very time efficient and effective way for people to exercise, but there's nothing wrong with the old approach.
