I hear a lot of guys complaining that women like or prefer guys much taller, or say women should only go for guys 1-3 inches taller.
A girl on one of the questions pointed out the average height differences alone are about 5-6 inches of difference in the united states. So at the very least, it seems like the average woman and man should be attracted to at least 5-6 inches of differences, or that will be the standard or norm. The whole love for tall men just adds onto that but even without it, if the average woman and average man are going to be paired together, there would still be more than 1-3 inches of difference.
What do you think?
What height difference do you think is best for yourself and other people?

Everyone likes different things. Its cool to talk about reasoning behind our preferences, but you shouldn't be pissed with people for their preferences. Some guys have a serious issue if you're a woman who likes tall men. Even some tall women I've talked to about this have a bitter tone when I tell them I love much taller guys.
I'm average for us - 5'4. The guys I've been with are 6-14 inches taller. I love tall men, its hot that they can tower over me and I think the whole traditional "short girl, tall guy" thing where you reach up to kiss them is super cute. But its not for everyone, and I wouldn't push my ideals on other people. I won't be pissed if a taller guy isn't trying to visit munchkinland and wants tall women instead. Its totally fine. Everyone has insecurities, these bitter guys should keep that in mind. I love my height, but there are days when I would love to be a 5'10 amazon with a powerful, elegant presence. But guess what? It ain't gonna happen. So everyone should just stfu and sit down :)
The whole 1-3 inch rule is something you should follow if its what YOU want, but that probably wouldn't work for most people if you're insisting that other people should date that way. That would only work for tall women dating average and tall men, and short men dating average/short women. I don't think there are enough women tall enough or enough men short enough for that to ever be a normal pattern or standard in relationships. Seems like a huge chunk of people would be left out.0
