A man who is towered over by his 6ft 3in girlfriend isn't bothered by the height difference.
Nick Cole stands at a perfectly respectable 5ft 11in, but his other half Lizzy Groombridge is 10cm taller - which of course flips the usual boyfriend-girlfriend height difference paradigm on its head.
Nick isn't concerned about leaning upwards for smooches though, and while he initially felt 'insecure or paranoid' about Lizzy's social media stardom, he now sees it positively.
He said: "I'm proud of the beautiful confident girl she's blossomed into. Some people expect me to be insecure or paranoid by the attention she attracts online but I see it positively because she's mine.
"She empowers other people, embraces who she is and makes a living in maybe an unconventional way but a beneficial way, and nothing means more to her than providing for her children.
"She's an amazing mum and girlfriend. The height difference, though noticeable, never bothers me as she's unique and I love that.
"She's come a long way in a few years and is proof you can rise from the bottom and find yourself even when you feel lost."
It took Lizzy a long time to accept who she was. She'd grown taller than her friends - and even her dad - by the age of 13, with bullies calling her a 'lanky beanpole'.
Lizzy, from Camborne, Cornwall, said: "When you're so tall you stand out all the time and sometimes I can't even fit through doors without ducking.
"In school people would call me beanpole or lanky and it made me really embarrassed and shy.
"I used to avoid wearing heels because a lot of my friends are only around 5ft 3in and with my boyfriend the height difference was a bit uncomfortable at first too."
She continued: "He had never had a taller girlfriend before and stereotypically the man is supposed to be the taller one so it used to make me feel quite embarrassed and silly.
"But we don't mind the height difference anymore and he likes when I wear heels - people will comment about how much taller I am but it doesn't bother us."
The 27-year-old is now making a healthy living from the height that used to make her feel so uncomfortable, having inadvertently stumbled upon a new career path.
The mum-of-three took time off from her old job in care to focus on raising her kids - during this period, her social media accounts took off.
She explained: "I make good money through social media thanks to my height - I get paid for my Instagram posts and TikTok videos and even get video requests like standing in a doorway.
"I also have an OnlyFans account which took off really quickly once I set it up and I've been in the top two percent of earners in the last six months.
"In that time I've earned tens of thousands, plus been sent around £3,000 worth of gifts from fans, like heels to wear in my posts.
"In my old job in care, working part time because of my children, I used to earn £600 a month - so I'm earning almost ten times as much now from home.
"It's crazy but there's a massive market for really tall girls."
