A bit important but not too much. I know a few couples where the guy is either the same height as the girl or the girl is slightly taller. They still look great ☺️ But personally, I'd rather date a guy a bit taller than me, especially when im wearing heels.
In my experience, height is pretty important for a lot women, whether they wish to be polite about it or bluntly declare it. The ones who DEMAND a man to be at a particular height should be avoided at all costs. The women who care little or not at all are the ones that are probably looking for lasting love and companion, the things that really matter in a relationship.
Guys are often hung up on height too, but it's not as big of a deal as for women when choosing a partner. I personally think it's cute when a girl is taller than I am, but only one of my crushes ever was, and even then she only had an inch on me.
Call me racist or whatever, but black and East Asian women tend to be the worst about demanding a taller man.
I don't think that people should care so much. Life is too short to get hung up on trivialities.
I think it is always a slight turn-off if the man is short et than I am... Because I'm not tall either there aren't many of those. But somehow those guys always find me and try to make an impression... it's actually okey if they are ok with it themselves and not trying to act weird about it!
It's important but it also depends on how attractive his face is. Although I'm really hard about 5'10 and up is what I usually look for, there have been some exceptions to that rule bc the guy was hot enough for me to not care.
Why is it that guys need to have a big penis, be 6ft tall or over, be funny and outgoing, have a nice job and drive an expensive car to get girls? Guys date a girl based on her personality alone. Not her job or looks or height. Girls are so shallow. They could learn a thing or two from men.
