  • I'm "averagely short" as one YouTuber of my height put it. I'm 5'4.

    1. pros - well obviously we can see eye to eye, literally!, and maybe certain positions during sex may be easier, idk. no bending down or reaching up to hug and kiss, very easy to dance together, etc. to be honest I've never dated a guy that short. so I'm only imagining what it would be like. cons - I'm not attracted to short men generally. but I have seen a couple guys who are only a few inches taller (like 5'7) and they were really cute. one guy in particularly, he's a total package, brains and looks and he's around 5'6/5'7. I guess another con is I don't feel the same way when theyre standing next to me. even guys who are 4 inches taller than me don't feel that much taller. my friend is 5'8 and it doesn't seem that much taller.

    2. pro- honestly I don't know what the pros would be. maybe id feel really helpful because I would be able to reach things they couldn't or help them out. con - id have to lean down to kiss them. and I'm definitely not attracted to men that short.

    3. pro - I'm very very attracted to much taller men. I've dated really tall guys most often, like 6'0 and up. I guess I consider 5'10/5'11 to be tall, well, its a lot taller than I am anyway. I think I really start to feel like someone is tall standing next to me at 6'0 mark, but I love 6'2-6'4. I love reaching up to kiss them and I love the way we look together. I love playing around with them and cuddling with them. even though some things don't line up perfectly in certain positions, I actually think I like sex much better with tall guys. I've had a great sex life and pretty much only been with tall guys. plus they can pick me up and do things to me in the air. fun fun :)con - its much easier to reach up to kiss/hug than it is to bend or lean down. I mean some guys may be annoyed by constantly having to do that and it may be a pain in the neck, literally, for some guys. dancing usually isn't going to be completely idealistic unless I wear high heels. my head is not going to make it to rest on his shoulder, ill be on his chest or something. grinding may not happen correctly if he has really long legs and ill be backing it up on his freakin leg or something, which is pointless. things like that. and I've heard some guys online say they are self conscious about being seen with a much shorter girl, like they feel like a pedophile. that's kind of insulting but I guess if that's how you feel. I've never met a tall guy in real life who had that opinion, and honestly I think youd be blind if you thought I was a child. like, the kids you know must be stacked.

    i like high heels sometimes, but not usually so shoes aren't really going to boost my height too much, if at all. I think this emphasizes the height difference. that may be good or bad, depends on your perspective.

  • I think the perfect or "ideal" height ratio occurs when you hug and the girls head fits perfectly in the crook of his shoulder/neck. So I guess that would be about 4-5 inches taller. You can hold hands comfortably, match up sexually, wear heals and not be taller, kiss without hurting his neck. When the guy is super duper tall it's fun because he can pic you up, throw you over his shoulder, give you piggy back rides with no effort. But with this "ideal" height ratio, he's still big enough to do these things =).

  • I'm 5'4"

    There are not too many people shorter than me around here.

    But here goes ... = D

    [1.] I would be okay with someone taller than me. If they were my height, cool. But they would have to beware, I wear really high heels. (3-5 inches) Pros: we're the same height just about Con: My heels are a cheat.

    [2.] I just can't see myself with someone shorter than me. = ( Pro: None Con: None

    [3.] My type of guy. 5'6" and up is what I'd go for. Pro, he's always taller than me. Con: He'd have to bend to kiss me.

    Yep ... = )

  • shorter...i'm 5"2. so I wouldn't know

    around my height.he would just seem tiny for a guy, come on I'm 5"2, I don't think it's unfair of me to say that it would hard to be attracted to someone that short. plus I couldn't wear heels.

    much taller..most guys are usually 6-8 inches taller than I am which isn't "huge" to me. I never dated super tall guys but it is harder to reach for a kiss I guess.

  • If he's taller than me, all I have to do is knee him in the balls. If he's shorter, I can always use my foot.

  • I am 5'3 and my boyfriend is 6'4. Sometimes he's like a bull in a China shop, but for the most part it's good. His piggyback rides are great, we rock at chicken fights, and I just overall enjoy it because I find guys above 6'0 attractive. He also makes a fantastic mattress for cuddling lol.

    We're not sexually active, but I feel like the parts wouldn't line up as easily as if we were closer in height, if you know what I mean lol, also, I have to stand on my tip toes when we kiss and he still has to bend over to get to my face. Sometimes we kiss on the stairs so I can be on the step above him and make us closer. But other than that, no, I don't see any flaws.

  • the only con is other people being too judgmental on you if it doesn't fit in with social 'norms'

    • Although people with a napoleon complec are common do u agree cja1989 ?

  • I think the same height is better but I'm just weird. Once, some girl around my height (5'9) that I was interested in told me she wasn't interested because we looked like brother and sister or something stupid like that. I know girls prefer a taller guy, many a much taller guy and that's the bottom line, and not just the midgets but the taller ones. I guess those girls have to date creatures of mythology.
