Being 6'3" I generally prefer taller women. Those are exceedingly rare though. The guys I've dated were always around 6', and the girls I've dated have always been 5'4" for some reason. Height isn't a huge deal. It's nitpicking at most, but it would be nice to land a girl that I didn't have to practically kneel down to kiss.

For some reason all the tall girls who live around here tend to be relatively conservative and totally unwilling to date a bi guy.

I'm challenged in the height department,just a little over 5ft2.99% of men are taller than me,I always wanted long legs.The worst is trotting after people like a hobbit.I don't do that anymore,if they can't walk at my pace then I don't want to walk with them anyway.It is nice to know that some gents like us short stuffs.I'm not short I'm FUN sized :lol:!And I'm not breakable.

I tend to attract shorter women too, a lot of tall & short women see me being 5'9'' as "tall", when just like in your case Aspie Otaku, short women have said to me that they feel safer around tall men. :shrug:

But what does height have to do with anything?

{BTW Aspie Otaku, how tall are you? :wink: }
About 6 ft1 6ft 2 when Im not hunching.

I prefer women dimensionally smaller than myself. Im insecure about my body size (not other sizes though) and it just feels awkward to think of being in bed with a woman who is much taller, or larger than me. Just a bit is no biggie, but there comes a point where its too much and i feel hey might break me.

I couldn't be with a taller woman.

I'm 6'2 and would prefer someone my height.

Tall guys are very handy for reaching that top shelf,I have to carry around my little foot stool.And it's nice to lay your head on their chest,if your short you don't have to ball up to do this.

Im a 5 ft 2 guy so I would be willing to date women that were taller.

The problem is, the vast majority of women are not interested in men shorter than them. Especially during their first impression. They may not be immediatly attracted to you.

However, I think once the women gets to know you and sees that you're a great guy then she will look past your height.


And if a women isn't willing to date you because you're short or shorter than her, then she's not the person for you. There are plenty of other women out there.

I'm all of like 5' 4.5" (~163 cm) and fully grown, so, it's not hard to find girls and women who are taller than I am. I don't mind, though; I've been literally looking up to people my whole life.

Not a male, but a female chiming in to say that not all women want taller men. Personally I love having partners shorter than me.

It seems like there are enough men who don't like tall women and enough women who don't like short men that both the men and the women who don't have these preferences assume they're universal in the other gender.

I'm drawn to shorter than average women who are around 5' to 5'4"... My being 6'3" means I'm not into taller women.

I love taller girls, but then I've had to. I've always been incredibly short for my age and my first girlfriend was around 11 inches taller than me lol. I'm only 5'4 now at 25 so a lot of girls are still taller than me. Imo, they make great sun blockers :D All three of my sisters are taller than me, my best friend is taller than me. Hard to find girls around where I live that are shorter than me. Also found that taller girls seem to find short guys cute, I can live with cute.

I'm about 5.5ft myself and to be honest, I haven't met/seen many women over 6ft, but it's not an issue. I suppose I can see why it would for some people, but me? Nah.

if you're a lucky [but shorter] man with a taller, statuesque woman, you'd better be "tall" where it counts.
