  • Being 5'10", I'm definitely okay dating guys who are a bit shorter, within reason of course. My current boyfriend is a wee bit shorter, which I'm fine with.

    I didn't necessarily 'let him know' I'm okay with it, nor did that ever happen with past guys. The fact that I return any interest after the guys show some in me should suffice, no?

    • lol oh don't worry about that either. Girls, from the ones I hang out with as well as myself use the term 'boy-toy' non-literally. Like if there's a guy we're attracted to and want to have fun with, but there's no emotional bond or potential for more, he'll be a 'boy toy'.

    • Ha.. Touché.

  • I'm 5'9" and every guy I've dated before my current relationship has been shorter than me. I'll admit that things have been easier with a taller dude though and it's also been my longest-lasting, most successful relationship yet. I don't know if this is a coincidence or not, but I'll admit I prefer taller guys after I've had a taste of what it's like being with one.

  • I think it is just about the personality. I mean I prefer taller men but if I like the guy's personality, his height and physical appearance don't matter to me. I mean if he is good looking and physically attractive too, that is just a major bonus.

    • @PhiOmega: yeah it's just all hypothetical. My SO is 6'4" but when I met him years ago he was a couple of inches shorter than me. He's 25, almost 26, so I'm pretty sure he's not going to grow anymore lol.

    • lol, i guess he was all like "do you wish me to be taller my lady? *grows to superior hight* does this please you?" lol, that's a gentlemen

  • Yes. My boyfriend is about an inch shorter than me.
    And how? I started talking to him like id talk to anyone in interested in.

  • Most of the guys I dated in the past were shorter than me, but my current boyfriend is exactly 1 inch taller. I'm 5'8, I don't care if the guy is shorter, but it bugs be when a guy is towering over me.

    • It it just "happen to be" they were shorter or were you actually looking to date shorter guys than you?

    • I usually prefer to date guys who are shorter than me or around my height, but I never actively pursued them because they approached me first.

  • im five foot one and i don't have that problem:D well... this guy who was interested in me but i was not interested in him like that he's four foot ten... that i found just wahhhhh?

  • not really but it won't matter if I like him by his personality. I sometimes don't understand myself when I feel like i like someone who Im not physically attracted to.

  • I'm sorry but I'm such a sucker for tall lanky guys. If I were single, I mean maybe, anything's possible, but I would def be going for the taller guys.

  • well i really do prefer guys who are either the same height as me or taller, but if they're short and have the most outstanding personality then why not, they can't really do anything about their height really, its how they are :)

  • I'm pansexual and my girlfriend is shorter than me, but I would gave no problem dating a guy if he were shorter. I think it's just a bit cuter if the guy is taller. My parents are really happy and my dad is much shorter.
