I've noticed that a lot of taller women seem to be interested in me.
They aren't drastically taller, just one or two inches, but it is a noticeable change for a guy that is used to dating girls that are shorter than him.
I always viewed this as a barrier, but it has happened a couple of times now.
They are by far the most attractive girls that are interested in me.
Does it affect the relationship at all?
Have any girls dated guys that were shorter than they were?
Is it less of a barrier than I thought it was?

Only if it is for you! I'm a 5'10" woman and for one reason or another, often seem to have fallen for shorter guys. Probably because I'm most concerned about a person's good character and personality, than the matching of their height.. so being quite tall myself the odds were it would happen from time to time. Not that I haven't found them to be perfectly attractive; I quite like the compact physique of a shorter man and the way it contrasts mine.. a lot of people talk about "protective instinct" and height, but really I think this applies as much to build as anything else, and shorter guys are often sturdier, where taller women, like myself, tend to be slight.
That said; I've had mixed experiences of such relationships. Remember that if taller women are approaching you, they have already decided that your height is not barrier for them. Women need to feel loved and appreciated in a relationship, though, so if you're not 100% comfortable with the idea, it'll probably have a negative impact in the long run. I once dated a shorter guy and there was tonnes of chemistry and attraction.. only for him to develop a complex about the issue later when his friends started ribbing him about. I sensed that he was ashamed of me when he became reluctant to include me in his social activities and instead always wanted to hang out at home. Without wanting to toot my own horn, I'm generally considered to be an attractive woman, and I wasn't about to let this relationship undermine my self-esteem, so that was that.
My current boyfriend of four years is shorter than me, and we've been very happy since he's confident in himself and doesn't let it bother him. Of course his mates poke fun at times, but he chalks it up to jealousy and deflects it. After all, if it wasn't that it would be something else - there's always something!
The short of it is that you can certainly have a perfectly happy and fulfilling relationship with a taller woman if, and this is a big IF, you've got your own issues in check.2
