Would you date a short guy?

Would you date a short guy? Even if he was 5'4", but smart and handsome?

Updates:
Post your own height as a reference.
It would seem women are mostly concerned with a guys relative height, and not so much with his real height. So long as she is barely over in height, or otherwise shorter, there isn't a problem, with some exceptions where she doesn't care at all.
Other exceptions include how the guy makes the girl feel, and how attractive he is otherwise. Confidence is important.
This was a really successful question with a lot of good answers. Thanks a lot ladies.

  • I'm 5'2'', so there's a chance I would if I thought he was "the one," but I'd prefer someone taller. Mostly because I consider myself extremely short, and if I can't even wear heels with the guy it would seem weird. I've never run into this problem before though.

  • I'm 5'1", so heck yes I would. ;-)

    PS: If you're confident in yourself, height REALLY doesn't matter. See a recent letter of the sex columnist Dan Savage: link

  • Yep (: I am right now actually. He's 5'4 but he's exactly my height. He's a great guy. He treats me with respect and I absolutely LOVE his personality <3 I don't think looks matter, but that's just me

  • honestly...no >.<

    ive always been made fun of because of my height [ I've always been super tall ]

    and I tried dating a few guys who are shorter than me...

    but it didn't turn out right.

    last time I went to the doctor months ago,

    i was 5' 7.5"

    so I'm probably 5'8" right now.

    • But what if he were shorter than you?

    • Well actually the guy I like is shorter than I am. It's not a huge difference but still, I don't even think about it as a problem. I will just not use hills with him but well...haha :P

    • Three down arrows? What's wrong with you people?

  • sure, if he's a good person. That's all that matters.

  • hehehe my boyfriend is about the same size as me, which is around 5'4" I'm actually a TINY bit taller than him, but we're so in love :) He's really smart, funny, handsome and has a great personality! If a girl doesn't go out with you because she thinks you're too short, she's probably really shallow.

  • I'm 5'2" and more particular about being the "dainty" one than the "short" one. As long as I didn't feel I could take him down in a fight, it's fine with me. :)

    • Yeah I don't know about that, it wouldn't work out very well lol You see it's interesting, I'm not really interested in taller women, so I totally get that.

    • Show All
    • Yeah and as for being a giant, just find a taller guy ;) You're beautiful

    • Thanks! :]

  • Yes. Especially because I'm really small. Besides, I don't really care what a guy looks like. :P Also, Mc Chris is short, and he's AMAZING. I love him! :3

  • I have been asking myself this recently. I've met a really handsome, intelligent guy, but he is a few inches shorter than me, I'm 5' 9". I think he's 5'6".

    I say I would, but I don't know how comfortable I would really be.

  • I've ALWAYS been into shorter guys, but I feel like guys don't like taller girls. :/ I'm 5'6, and I've always been sexually attracted to handsome shorter guys with great bodies.

    • I get the feeling she means 4'11" and up, maybe 4'10". scar1 are you shorter than 4'11"?

    • Oh, I meant someone who isn't like...6'0. Someone like your height. Sorry about the confusion, lol. As long as the guy is taller than me.
