Thanks for your answers, everyone. I'm 5'10" and was trying to see if I'd have a shot with a woman who was 5'11 or 6'0". I'm not really buff, however I can change that, whereas I cannot change my height.
Judging by the answers, I would most likely NOT have a shot. :( Oh, well.
Ha. I wouldn't care if he was buff or not. I dated two shorter men. I am 5'11. One was 5'8 and the other 5'9. They were extremely nice too. It doesn't matter to me. Height is such a shallow thing to look at when dating. I look at personality.
well, (my true story) I've met a guy on the mall once (he was some store employee) and I've noticed he checked me out every time I got there. he was really cute - light green eyes, curly light brown hair and a bit chubby too - so, I asked for his phone number... we set a date... but the only thing I haven't noticed was that they have a kind of a step were the employees stand to serve the customers... so when I saw him it was a bit disappointing... I always thought he would be around 5'10ft but he was actually as short as me (5'3ft) and that plus some personality traits of him didn't let it work out.
so, I can't say that I won't date a guy shorter than me because I know some really cute ones. but men aren't meant to be cute and make us want to hug them like a teddy bear. I want a guy who can (at least with his size) show he can protect me.
5'10'' is decently tall, and that's hardly any difference! Don't worry about it so much, height really isn't as big of a deal as everyone makes it out to be. If everything else is there, what's a couple of inches height difference.
And, for me at any rate, buffness does NOT need to compensate height. Over buffness is to me at any rate more of a turn off than shortness (and 5'10'' isn't even short)
Height has never really been a major factor for me, I know some girls are crazy over someone tall, but I think there's a lot more important stuff than who can reach the top shelf (although I wouldn't want to feel huge/oversized in comparison) A short guy can be just as cute/attractive as a tall guy, and personality is the real winner.
I think if being a buff makes a difference to her, she'll care about his height too. Neither matter to me. I want someone who gets along with me, shares similar values, and takes care of themselves. I will care if they don't shower, but their height isn't something they can control.
Really people would rather under go waterboarding than date a shorter guy LOL I highly doubt it. I am 5'8 and I don't have a problem dating guys who are an inch or two shorter. It really isn't whether or not a guy is buff but his personality that will win me over.
Well I'm 5'3 so I'm short as it is but I don't think I'd mind dating someone shorter than me. It doesn't really matter if he's buff or not, if he has a great personality and I get on well with him then it's all good :)
I don't care about a guy being buff for one. And second of all I'm 5'2 like a user said below and there are not many guys my age or older than me that are shorter than me. I met one, his name was Dusty... and he was a leprechaun.
Yes I would date a shorter guy if he wasn't too short. I'm 5,10" and a lot of guys are shorter than me so I kinda have to deal with it. Sometimes it's the guy that have a problem of being shorter. I used to date this guy who was 3 centimeters shorter than me and he was not comfortable with that. I don't think it matters as long it's not too big of a difference between the girl and the guy-
Well I'm already 5'7 so probably not though I like a guy that's A's tall A's me though I might become taller because I haven't stopped growing. So yeah basically apprearance is not that important but if he's shorter than me it's pretty bad :/ sorry but its really awkward if the girls taller.
I don't care much of the guy's physical appearance whether he's tall or buff. What I care about is if we're compatible and we understand each other. So I don't mind if he's shorter than me and even if he's not buff.
I did date a guy shorter than me, and even though he was on the chubby side, I always felt massive compared to him, despite the fact that I was actually skinny. I'm not into either short or buff guys, so no.
it would be hard to find a guy shorter then me. I would rather he be a bit taller. But if we get along really well then I don't see why not.
No. But it depends from girl to girl. I think the guy should be taller, but that's just me.
i know lots of girls who date guys shorter than them.
One of my friends is 5'10" and her boyfriend is 5'0"
Another friend is 6'0" and her boyfriend is 5'5"
Height hasn't been that big of a deal breaker to me. I'm 5'6 and have dated guys around my height. For a guy to be shorter than me, he'd have to be pretty short ... I don't encounter this too often, so its hard for me to say. There would be a lot of other factors for me to decide, like does he make me laugh, is he a decent guy, does he share some of the same viewpoints as me, etc.
No I wouldn't date a shorter buff guy, it looks strange on a short guy link
