How tall are you and how tall are you parents? And what's your height preference in the person you date?

I'm 5'8 and my parents are 5'4 and 5 foot tall. Personally, the tallest girl I'd go for is 5'10 but taller than that would be way too awkward for me. I wouldn't mind 5'10 though and would like my future kids chances of becoming taller to be higher since I'm below average. I'd go for any girls shorter than me though as long as I'm attracted to her and our personalities click.

  • Lol I'm 5'3

    My mom is probably a couple inches taller at max. And my dad is who cares.

    I like shorter dudes I guess. I don't like to feel small and towered over.

  • I'm 5'4. My mom is 5'6 and my dad is 6'1.

    My current boyfriend is 6'6 which I find delightful. I don't necessarily have a preference on height for a partner but I must admit that I find the taller guys to be attractive. Guys between 6'0 and 6'7 are who I tend to be attracted to and who I tend to attract. 6'8 is just too tall. I come up to my uncle's elbow. Simply cannot handle that lol

    I have dated shorter and that was good too. Let's be honest, at 5'4 it's pretty easy to be the shortest in the relationship :p

    • 6'6"? woaaa hehe

    • Yeah... he's kind of giant. He wasn't that tall when we started dating. Not sure what happened but he went from 5'6 to 6'6 in like 2 years. You know what's embarrassing? Going to hug your boyfriend and going to put your chin on his shoulder like usual and then suddenly not being able to reach his shoulder and smacking your jaw on his chest.

  • im 5'3"

    my parents uhm... well theyre not that tall lol, id say mum is 5'6" and dad like, 5'9" ?

    my dating preferences? look i dont really care as long as he's taller than me. id love if he were 5'8" or over but honestly, if he's a little shorter it doesn't bother me at all haha

  • My mom is 5'3" and my dad is 6'7". I'm 6'1". Most guys are about my height but I would date any guy within a 5 inch range either way, maybe more, as long as he would be okay that I'm tall.

  • I'm 5'9 and somehow am taller than both my parents, who are 5'6 and 5'7. My mom is the taller that my dad. I actually have a preference for guys who are the same height as me or slightly taller, like somewhere between 5'9 and 6'0. I'm usually not attracted to super tall guys for some reason; which apparently puts me in the minority based on what my female friends are into.

    • What about a guy an inch shorter? I wouldn't mind going for maximum 2 inches taller but I'm trying to see if girls an inch or 2 taller wouldn't mind a 5'8 guy. If most say no then I wouldn't approach them.

    • Yeah, but it was a few years ago so it's no big deal now! I'm not sure how I got to be taller than both my parents, but some of my cousins are pretty tall also so that could be a factor. Based on my observations, it seems like most girls unfortunately do prefer taller guys. It's not fair at all.

    • Taller is fine, I have no problem with that but if a girl prefers the guy to be at least 5 or 6 inches taller, that's what gets me puzzled. Especially girls as short as 5'1 or 5'2 exclusively dating guys 6 foot and taller. Like if you said you wouldn't have gone for a guy an inch shorter than you, I would have completely respected that. Even respected if you had said you wouldn't go for a guy an inch or 2 taller. Expecting guys to be at least 6 inches taller is something I'll never understand.

  • My dad is 6'3" my mom is 5' even. I'm 5'10". I don't care as long as he is around my height but taller is better.

    • Lol okay, my bad. You should have stated that your ideal or dream guy is at least 5'11 :)

    • yep yep!

  • I am almost 5'4, mom is 5'2, dad just under 6' (5.97). I like guys between 5'7 and 6'3 (maybe even more, but I've never been in the situation, lol) , but I was crazy about a guy exactly my height before, but I'd never go shorter.

    • You wouldn't date a guy between 5'4 to 5'6? Because those guys literally have almost no option in girls, especially when short girls like you who are perfect for them yet most shorter girls your height prefer guys to be at least 5'7 or my height. I feel bad for short guys. My dad is short too.

    • I'm not saying I wouldn't date them, it's just my preference

  • Me: 5'1
    Mom: 4'11
    Dad: 5'7

    • I really, really like tall men so somewhere between 5'10-6'4 would be awesome but it's not required. In reality I'll date a guy as long as he's significantly taller than me, so no shorter than 5'7.

  • I'm 5'5/5'6, my mother is 6'0, and my dad's 6'3. I prefer if the guy I end up with will be around 6'0. I'm just so used to being around my brothers and they're 6'3. But if I like them enough the height won't matter.
