  • I don't care about height much. However so many women want guys that are not only taller than them, but are taller than the majority of guys that it teaches us not to bother approaching taller women.

    The average guy in America is 5'10, yet I constantly see women only willing to date guys that are 6'2 even though this greatly restricts the percentage of guys they would be willing to date. Even really tall girls frequently refuse to date a guy even a little shorter than themselves.

    Would I date a girl that was taller? Yes. Would I ever bother approaching a girl that was taller? Not unless she was flirting with me for a while so that I already knew she was interested. Otherwise I would assume she was only interested in taller guys and not even give her a second look.

    • Tl;dr

      I would date a guy that's 5'10 without hesitation. End of.

    • What I am trying to say is that approaching is different than being willing to date. Guys don't have an infinite amount of confidence. If a woman wants to get asked out, then she needs to put out some signals letting the guy know she isn't likely to reject him. This is true for all women, but tall women are going to have it a bit tougher making sure the guy is comfortable enough to ask her out.

  • Hi Chick180, my current boyfriend is a tall dwarf, so the answer is yes, I would consider dating someone shorter than me. Best sex partner I've ever had, which says a lot considering all guys I've dated previously were my height or taller (me being 166cm without shoes on). I've learnt that height really doesn't matter much in the end. I switch off from people gawking, my boyfriend is actually very well known in my city by people, and he has a great personality so the rest to me is irrelevant :) I'm not a superficial person. Personality trumps all. If I can't get along with someone, then it's bye bye..

  • i love reading the rants by guys who are like 5'7 and up bitching about how short they are. Coming from a guy who is actually short (im 5'5) i will tell you that I have zero problems dating a girl taller than I am.

  • I was 6'0 back when I was 17 during the days of compulsory body checks to ensure we don't have any secret superpowers that we are hiding from the government.

    I have yet to see a girl taller than I am yet but if she exists , I'll be more than open if we grind gears smoothly :3

  • I have dated a woman taller than me. I'm 6 foot even in my stocking feet, and she was at least 5 inches or so taller, and as she LOVED to wear heels she just toward over me. I think she just embraced her tallness, and shove it in people's face. Her confidence was intoxicating.

    • So she was like 6'7?

    • Not exactly sure, she was definitely taller I would guess 6'5" but we only went out a few times (not because of her hight, she didn't like the fact I was in a few other open relationships).

  • Even if a girl says she's willing to date a shorter guy, that doesn't mean she's more sexually attracted to shorter guys. It means that she's ready to give up sexual attraction for other things, such as money, status, etc.

  • My parents were like that, and I never saw or heard a problem. No one ever gave them a bad time about it, or teased my dad. My dad was fine, never felt lesser-than, or developed a complex. They were happy as could be for 61 long happy years, till he passed away last year. So go for it!

  • I would date a girl who was taller than me, depending on how taller than me she was. If it's just 2 or 3 inches, then we can make it work. She'd tower over me in high heels, but I can live with that. If the girl is 6 foot tall however, I couldn't do it. (I'm 5'8 myself).

  • I would date someone taller than me. I'm about 5'5" and I have dated someone that was about 5'7". That relationship however, lasted for about 2 months. Every time we would go out together, people would be staring and judgmental about it, but I didn't care. There was one time when a guy actually approach her when I went in the washroom. He said to her, what are you doing with this loser? You could do so much better? Is he like rich or something. She slapped the guy in his stupid face.

  • I'm 5'7 and the tallest girl I've dated was 5'7 but she always wore heel most of the time which made her like 6 feet tall and it made me feel really awkward, I didn't like it at all, to be honest that was a deal breaker in the relationship for me. I now date a girl who is 5'3 and is my height when she wears heels and I like it much better

  • 5'10 and really don't mind, I think I'd only be put off if they were very tall (6'2+) or very small (5' -).. Even then if the right person it's a non issue.

  • I dont know honestly. I am super secure about myself so its not a big deal but I feel like she wouldn't take me seriously once we got into arguements and she's patting me on the head lol. I'm 6 feet tho so hopefully my future ex wife is not taller than this lol

    • Perfect. U can rock high heels and Ill still be taller. Thats ideal. I feel for the guys whos girls tower over them once they put on their slay em shoes lol. But in the end who cares its not a big deal. Only insecure people worry about height.

    • Yeah 6' - 6'2 is ideal for me.

  • Honestly, while I would prefer to date a woman who was shorter than me, I would still date one who happened to be taller than I am. But I will admit that it might be a bit awkward if she was much over 6' as I'm under 6'.

  • I've dated girls as short as 4'5" to as tall as 5'10". I'm 5'3" by the way. I couldn't possibly care any less about height. It's confidence and a sense of humor that truly matters and nothing more. Moreover, I've never had any issues in attracting the opposite sex, from middle school to the present in college. You just need to be comfortable in your skin; if you don't care about height, your significant other won't either.

  • Yes I would. My last crush (found out she was dating someone on Saturday) was about 5'10". The thing is because things are as they are, most gals aren't open to dating guys that are shorter than they are.

    I'm 5'4". I'd say I'm comfortable with dating to about 5'9"ish since I want to be able to kiss her "on the fly" (aka, w/o asking her to bend down or give her any signals). Ad in heels to the mix, and if she were taller than the stated, I'd just feel odd (even though I've work on this).

  • I'm 5'7 and honestly, height is the only appearance feature I care about. I really like a guy to be taller than me, but I've dated a guy like a week ago who was even shorter than me, so it's not everything, but pretty important to me.
    Luckily, I almost never meet guys who're shorter or same length as me. Only in foreign countries and everywhere here on GaG.
    My ideal height is about 6'2/3.

  • I've had a fling with someone shorter than me.

    The short answer is no. I'm quite a chunky girl, height is important to me because it makes me feel less big. However, if I had a choice between an amazing short guy and a complete douche of a tall guy, I would chose the smaller one... I think...

    • You're right, according to wikipedia: "In humans, dwarfism is sometimes defined as an adult height of less than 4 feet 10 inches"

      Anyway I think very few guys would be that short.

    • @Bysshe guys without dwarfism, yeah it's very very very rare for a guy to be that short (and not have dwarfism) I've only met one but he was old, so age could have shrunk him as well.

  • I would totally date a guy shorter than me. Especially if they work out, so sexy. They never go for me though…. i'm 5'6.

    • You think they don't because you're taller?

    • I don't think it is because I'm taller. I think it's because they want a more feminine girl (hair, make up, clothes) which I'm not. Or at least thats the excuse they always give.

    • Ahh I see. That's cool :))

  • I'm 5Feet4 and no i could not date shorter than me but i also thought i could like guys at my height or slightly taller but now know i can't. They need to be taller haha.
