If the boyfriend is shorter then the girlfriend? This guy I really like (who Is going to ask me out..His best friend told me..) is about the same height as me maybe a centimeter or two shorter... But he's a year older than me.. Is that just awkward?
It just depends on your own personal preference...
If you're dating someone (or not dating someone) just because you're afraid of what others may think, you have bigger problems other than just being too tall.
Personally, if I see a guy shorter than 6'10" I immediately think BAD GENES - Yes, it's shallow, but it's just my animal instincts (we've all got em') - but then again, I'm a moderately tall female (5'7") so I'm attracted to taller than average men.
I really like your question.. I'm nearly 5'9'' and my brother asked me the other day when we were out why I don't wear heels (like the other chicks at the bar). I could only respond by saying it would make me feel too awkward...too...large, less feminine? But if your height is THAT close to the guys, I wouldn't worry about it!
