Yeah, though it would depend on how much shorter - if it's shorter to the point where I would have to bow down each time I wanted to kiss him then I probably couldn't - that just screams back pain to me..
First off you need to get over yourself and how you look over what could be a potentially good relationship. You are so worried about how other people precieve you by how tall your interest is. Forget your humanistic need to be accepted by others. That can be a hard thing to do. I too used to go buy society's list of norms and or expectations, but was left always wondering why I couldn't find someone. You saying is he too short for me is no different if I was to say should I like this girl she has a slight mustache. And yes, the girl I am currently let wonder WTF about indeed have a slight mustache and small boobs. The point I am getting at is we were very similar in personalities, enjoyed eachothers company and while it lasted we had fun together. I regret nothing about being with this girl mustache and small boobs included. If you think this guy is attractive, enjoy his company, and foremost have feelings for this guy your priorities are bss aackwards. I say give it a go he may treat you better than any man/boy ever will in your life but if how tall he is is more important than your happiness let his height decide for you and not your heart.
Personally I'm pretty fricken short and if I find someone shorter than me then woah! (your guy is apparently). I mean it wouldn't totally turn me off however I'm weird and always think about how I want my children to be taller than me if I had boys haha.
