I have not met many women taller than me due to being 6 foot 1 but if I dated a woman taller than me I would feel intimidated and inadequate. There I said it and I'm a man.
I find when im in a room with a male or female that is taller than me I feel inferior and I am 6'2.

Making eye contact with a taller woman would be a bit easy, but if she is over 6' tall.... well.....

I wonder where the OP lives. It seems that 5'9" is almost the norm around Chicago.

But, to answer the question, I do not care about a woman's height one bit... except... except... the fact that it matters to most women. It matters a ton. It's a dealbreaker to most girls.

And, that doesn't bother me a bit. You can't change who you're attracted to. It is what it is.

But, at 5'8" myself, I recognize that reality and work with it. Even if I find a girl plenty attractive, I generally make zero effort unless she's 5'4" or under. Preferrably 5'2" or under. And, if she's taller than me, she's got to PROVE that she's not playing a joke on me.

Just look around you. You know what I'm saying is statistically true. I can count on one hand the number of lasting relationships I've seen where the guy was any bit less than 6" taller than her.

Mind you, I'd rather it not be this way, but after that not being a factor and being burned left and right for women even four inches shorter than me (got to wear those 4" heels, I know), I've got no other choice.

Is 5'8" considered short where you live?
Reading this thread (and others, actually), I've noticed people seem to have wildly-varying concepts of what constitutes tall, short, and average...I wonder if there's a noticeable difference in height distribution based on different ancestries, in the West.

With the notable exception of a lone six-footer, I think the tallest man I've dated was 5'7" or so.

In my city I am short, and I'm 5"9!! It's crazy here.
But yeah no tall women for me, thanks. Or at least, women taller than me.

Why?
I don't find it attractive? Just like some women don't like dating shorter men? I did give dating someone taller than me a try once.

Well....... we all know that almost invariably, the man in the relationship/marriage will be taller than the woman. However, every now and then the opposite will be true. So here's the thread to talk about that.
----
I am 5' 9", and there about only a small percentage of females that are taller than I am. It'd be awkward at first, but then I'd get used to it, so I wouldn't mind. :D


I'm 5'7, close to 5'8, and for a very long time now, and still do, I find tall women very attractive, hot, beautiful, gorgeous, thet do not emasculate me in anyway at all, now don't get me wrong, i'm not saying that women have to be taller than me in order to date them, what i mean is that i don't really discrimate against height

Yes, where I live, 5'8" is considered short. Most women, if they're asked, have 6'0" as the bar, even if the woman is 4'10". But, it does vary. In Italy, I felt tall. In London, I felt average. In HS, I felt average. Not that any of it matters in anything except dating, but it is what it is. I do have to say it's particularly annoying coming across some midget girls who I'm towering over who thought I wasn't "tall enough" for "any chemistry", but whatever. I've found height distributions match up with people's ancestries fairly well.

I personally have never met a woman taller than I am (Somewhere between 6'4 and 6'5, haven't measured recently), but if I did I would be more surprised than intimidated.
As for a relationship, height doesn't particularly concern me.

I wish I was tall, or at least tallER.
My sister (adopted) is over 6 feet. She can gain ten pounds and you'd never know it.
I'm 5'1". I gain two, and my jeans won't fit. :?
