How tall is too tall?

I see a lot of questions on here from short guys... I can't say I have that problem. So I'm wondering... what is the max height of a guy you'd consider dating?

Personally, I couldn't care less about a girls height. I've been with everything from 4'4"(I had sex with a tall midget lol) to a model who was 6'1". They both have their benefits. Short girls are f***ing adorable (not including midgets). Tall girls are extremely convenient to not have to bend over to kiss.

My workboots make me 6'6". Too tall?

Updates:
This is really surprising, I knew girls liked tall guys but I always assumed it stopped being a good thing at like 6'2".

  • I've got a cousin who is 6'7" and still growing. I wouldn't want to date anyone that much taller than me. It's funny to give him a hug, but if I was going to be intimate with anyone that tall... no. Just no.

    Liking a person for their personality can't fully make up for physical incompatibility as far as I'm concerned.

    My boyfriend is 6'3" and I'm happy with that. It won't bother me much if he gets a couple of inches taller. I'm 5'4".

    • It wasn't me, I upvoted though to counter-act their douche baggery.

    • I don't understand why people downvote others for there opinions?.. Confusing douchers.

  • I'm 6'1", so your height is perfect. Any taller than that, and the guy would be an absolute giant lol. My boyfriend is about 6'5" and that works just fine for me.

    The height difference between my parents is pretty epic though - my mom is like 5'2" or something and my dad is 6'6". So it can work I guess.

  • ive dated taller, same height and shorter. I actually like the ones who are the same height or w/in a food taller than me. so much convenient to not have to stand on toes to kiss.

    6'6" little tall, but not super tall either. id say 6'6" height is fine.

    • Definitely the most I've ever been hurt...

  • My guy is 6'5 and I LOVE it! ^_^ And If I ever get a different guy(although me and this guy are hoping to get married in the future) I'd like that or taller.

    If I hear a guy is less than 6'3 I'm a little dispointed, tbh. lol I wouldn't not date them for it, but I prefer 6'3 or taller like my current guy! ^_^

  • You are too tall for me, but only because I don't like to have to be picked up to kiss a guy, I want to be able to just reach up and do it myself.

  • Well for me if I like/am attracted to a guy his height won't really affect my perspective of him, however I just don't think it's convenient for him if he has to break his back to kiss me, on the other hand being carried while kissing/to the bedroom is a big plus because it makes me feel all protected :D

    I'm 5ft 1, and I don't think you're too tall :)

  • The taller the better, of course there is a limit, lol

    Anywhere from 5'11-6'3 is hot id say :)

    Makes me feel protected and guys just look more irresistable when theyre taller,

  • I am very petit, so just as you say it is just far easier if the height difference isn't too large. I tend to be more attracted to shorter men, I loose interest in a gyu that is taller than 6 feet. It's not that there is anything wrong with you or that you aren't attractive. I am only 5 feet tall so again, my shoulders would only come up to your crotch,lol. It's just awkward. It can defintely work of course I dated a guy that was 6'4'', and he was great.

  • I'm 5'6" and my boyfriend is 6'3", and that height difference is perfect between us. I love that I can wear high heels (as high as I want), and he'll still be taller than me. Some of my shoes put us pretty darn close together in height.. so him being taller wouldn't be a bad thing.. I don't think there is such a thing as "too tall"... although.. if you're going to be a really big man.. you need to have the muscles to back it up too! :)

  • I used to work with a guy who was just under 7' in bare feet.

    Probably some girls thought he was too tall.

    However girls literally swarmed him in clubs. I knew guys who used to pick up by standing near him and hitting on the girls who couldn't get his attention.

  • I think 6'6" is over the threshold of too tall and into the domain of truly tall.

    I'm 6'2" or 3". This is too tall. Normal guys are more like 6 foot, this is the ideal height for a 'normal' guy, I'm just too big to be a normal guy...but at the same time I'm not particularly tall. I don't get girls coming up to me and admiring my height the way my friend who is 5cm taller than me does.

    So...yeah. 6'2"-6'4" or so is too tall. Its just above average. Not good.

    More than that though and you're actually tall, which is what the ladies like.

    • Dont worry about being 5'1 , not that you said you were lol . I had a HUGE crush on a guy who was only 5'3 and he was VERY attractive.

      Im 5'0 tall , lots of short girls around for you ;D even some tall ones that don't mind.

    • thanks. :) I did have a question when I first came on GaG about most girls liking tall guys but I'm use to it and try to let my personality shine through. if you know what I mean.

  • you are probably too tall for short girls, that is girls that are 5 foot 5 and below but for girls 5 foot 5 plus you are just fine. I wouldn't worry about it though girls like tall men anyways, if you are short on the other hand you are f***ed.

    • but short men have more passion. *wispers* (trying to start a new phrase)

  • You're too tall when you can't(or haven't managed) to have appropriate weight for your height.

    I myself am 6'1" and I used to have a hard time getting weight and muscle to stop looking too skinny.

    Whether or not in girls' eyes are any limits for height alone, I have seen guys who are like 6'7" tall but so damn scrawny, like toothpicks..

    ..and I haven't ever noticed girls swarming around them.
