From what I understand, most women do not necesarily want a man who is tall, but a man who is taller than them.
That said, what is the smallest height difference that you would typically see as acceptable?
(Say you are 5'4'', the the options would be A - 5'4'' or lower, B - 5'5'', C - 5'6'' to 5'7'' or D - At least 5'8'')
- Same height or shorter is ok.19% (26)
- At least one inch taller.37% (50)
- At least 2 - 3 inches taller.27% (37)
- More than 3 inches taller than me.17% (23)

In my mind I used to always have the urge to reject short men or at least put then as my last choice. Taller men have always been more attractive to me for some reason. But almost every time I meet a tall guy I instantly feel disadvantaged & a bit awkward when things go horizontal between us. In recent years I've found myself turning down guys because they were too tall. It still doesn't change my attraction towards them though & doesn't make me appreciate any height more than another.
I'm 5'2 on a good day. A man I can look at eye to eye is just as compelling as a guy I have to look up to. I don't think I'd ever go for anyone shorter than me though. If that's even possible.
To generalize my answer... I guess my ideal guy height for dating would be 5'4 - 6'2. Anything shorter or taller is too much work lol.0
