I myself stand at 5'10 EXACT barefoot which I don't how much taller I would be with shoes on. I'm just curious how much height factors in determining a tall woman's attraction towards a guy of similar height because I have a higher preference towards them. And for the girls above 5'10, have you ever dated a guy shorter than you? If so, please describe the experience. If not, would you date a guy shorter than you?
I would prefer someone taller than me. I'm 20, white, and 5'7. My first boyfriend was 6'7, and my current is 5'10-ish. I would like the guy to be at least my height, prefer taller. However this is not a deal breaker. If a guy is a few inches shorter and I'm still attracted to him then whatever, height is not everything.
I do not mean to sound shallow, but if he is like half a foot shorter than me I would honestly start to feel unfeminine. I do not think any girl wants to feel bigger than her boyfriend. This probably relates to how guys are supposed to "protect" girls, and it seems strange when they are physically shorter than you. I'm not saying to overcompensate you should learn to fight or carry a weapon to "protect" yourself. It is just something where girls might feel self-conscious about themselves.
Im caucasion, 21 and 5'6. Personally I would never date a guy that's shorter than me, that's just not my thing. Height doesn't matter though, as long as the person is taller. And there are TONS of super cute short gals out there. I know a few girls actually who've dated guys that they are taller than and by a significant amount. Its just preference :)
I don't care much at all. If someone were short enough to make being physical with them actually difficult or uncomfortable because of height, then... well, that would be what it was. But I don't have some height cutoff, and I don't need to date someone taller than me.
