Ladies: Men that are taller than you, do you ever feel intimidated?

I read a question about taller men / shorter women and was wondering if tall-ness can be a negative factor with some of you.

  • Not really intimidated, but sometimes vulnerable. There are other factors, though, like how "big" he is in general. I'm not going to feel vulnerable around a tall guy if he's kind of slim and is friendly, smiling. But I've been surprised at my reaction around guys who are tall, muscular/broad, and kind of have a "tough guy" attitude. I know it's silly but it kind of triggers my "ahhh run away" instinct :P

  • No, I like "my men" to be taller than me. First of all so I can wear my high heels and they won't be shorter than me and second of all, because (maybe wrongly maybe by evolution) I feel more safe and protected when my guy is taller than me :)

  • Nope. I'm all of 5'4, and my boyfriend is a foot taller than me and my uncle is just shy of 7' and neither of them scare me. I also went to Holland where there a lots of really tall me and I was totally fine.

  • sure, sometimes it can be intimidating being around a tall guy.

    for me, being intimidated/ scared is actually a big turn on. Hell, I go to haunted houses just for the sexual thrill! >:D

  • Well considering that most women are shorter than most men, it would be annoying if it was a negative factor. Usually the ferling that comes with tallness is protective, safe.

  • Im 5'1 so most guys are taller than me .

    I do get intimidated by guys a lot taller than me, like 5'11 and taller. Nothing wrong with guys that tall. I love tall guys. They just make me kind of nervous. :D

  • I'm only 5'2" so most guys are taller than me. I'd date a guy who's a little shorter than me or one who's tall. It doesn't really matter much to me. But if he's extremely tall, it might intimidate me at first.

    • I'd be intimidated by the shorter guy, who are you dating, Danny Devito? Lol just messing around :)

    • That's a good point... Dating a dude that looked like Danny DeVito would be kinda creepy. haha

  • Most men are taller than me so, no I'm used to it, Actaully , there are middle school boys taller than me lol I once did have a crush on this really tall guy (6'6") but he could never notice me because I was too short . Tall girls intimidate me though because I feel inferior to their long legs !

    • So if I approached you, how could I put you at ease if you tend to get intimidated?

    • Being funny works, I always feel intimidated at first by my tall guy friends, but then we become friends and I'm not intimidated.

  • No, I love it.

    I feel safe and protected. But sometimes, tall guys are really whimpy too lol but I can be 6 ft if I wear a high heel so tall guys are nice :)

  • no. not intimidated. it can be frustrating, to be be able to see into his eyes, tho. I like to look at people, directly, when I talk to them.

  • Not even! A guy that is taller than me is attractive. It kinda gives that manly charm.

  • I'm 155cm and when I see a really tall guy, like 180

    And above all I think about is "Damn he would so crush me in bed." And then I get really intimidated because I'm practically a standing blow job. Lol.

  • It's not a negative factor for me at all, its actually a turn on. I'd feel actually more protected and a bit vulnerable with a taller guy but never intimidated though..

  • I'm only 153 cm, and so, sometimes really tall men I don't know can make me feel intimidated.

    I don't know if this is because I'm a shy person as well?

  • I'm 6'7" and a basketball player's build, I've never met a woman who didn't like it. If they do, they usually like football player bodies or someone with a little chunk on them. Now the way I see it is, if a girl doesn't like how tall I am... it's not my dilemma, it's a problem with her!

  • Frankly...i think most girls will think the complete opposite; that a guy taller than them is a turn-ON, not a turn-OFF.
