  • I don't want to rule it out, because maybe he'd be an awesome guy, but the reality is the likelihood of me dating a guy shorter than me is low. I'm 5'3". I tend to be attracted to guys taller than me.

    • Yeah that makes sense, that's why I was asking for heights of the people answering. I figured yes would be a more common answer the taller the girl was or the shorter the guy was.

    • Yeah. Maybe heights in the poll would help separate that out a little

    • Same, I agree

Most Helpful Guy

  • I very hardly ever see a girl who is taller than me. I am almost 6'4." So it'd be a 6'7" girl. Yeah, I see 6'7" girls sometimes, but I don't see them much haha

    Would I date a 6'7" girl? Honestly, it'd be kind of a turn off in the looks department for me, since I like shorter girls than I and tend to find them more attractive. However, the height wouldn't be an automatic no-go. It'd just be a bit of a strike. If they had other qualities that I liked that made up for it, for sure I'd date them.

  • I don't think I would, honestly. I love feeling small in comparison to my partner.

    That being said, I'm really not picky about how much taller a guy is. I'm 5'6 and have dated a guy who was probably 5'7. I have a friend who refuses to date guys who are under 6', which I find completely ridiculous. It's not even like she's tall -- she's only 5'2.

  • I once dated a shorter guy and the only person who seemed aware of our height difference was me. I threw my heels in the back of my closet and bought a few cute pairs of flats that I wore when we went out together.

    He never asked me to do it, I just did it because I thought it might be emasculating if I towered over him. But now that I think about it, he probably would have been mortified if he knew I was doing it.

  • I have no freaking idea what's my height right now, I think I seriously need to get measured soon.

    by the way, I'm 5'2 two years ago. And these days, it's hard to find any guys which are shorter than me lol! It's like all the guys are >5'8 and I'm a midget beside them ><

  • It just depends on the personality I'd of course it's not really some kind of a gap but i prefer taller men and my boyfriend is only 4 CMs taller than me and I'm totally obsessed over him..
    It's not really a big deal, Other things are way more important

  • My most recent ex and I met over Facebook. We live in the same town, knew the same people etc...
    I had no idea how tall he was until I met him and I found he is a bit shorter than me. It shocked me a bit at first but otherwise it didn't bother me. During the time we went out though I didn't want to wear heels as I didn't like looking taller than him lol.

    I'm 5'4.

  • If it really came down to it and I really loved the guy than obviously I'd say yes however the guys I generally choose to go on dates with are taller than me so the chances of that happening are low... I just love feeling protected and him being bigger than me, I like that I don't know why...

  • No, I wouldn't. I'm 5'8 and I wear heels a lot. I like feeling small when I'm with a tall guy. I just don't want short guys to feel insecure, cause that's happened a lot before. Even some of my guy-friends ask me not to wear heels cause they don't want to look shorter than me.

  • It's a person to person choice. I've observed that some women have their own height/weight insecurities and instead of accepting themselves, they project their insecurities onto what they think the appearance of a guy should be. To me that really limits their options and the perfect guy for them could easily be overlooked. The right girl will like a man how he is.

  • I've dated a guy who was 2 inches shorter than me. 2 inches shorter isn't really a big height different, he even liked it when I wore heels. So, if a guy is smart, has a good personality and if I felt the umm.. spark? I'd go on a date with him

  • My boyfriend is 6'0-4", and I am 5' 6" and 1/2.

    But I didn't decide to get into a relationship with him becuase of his height, I did it because of his personality and the way he makes me feel.

  • Eh, he'd have to be really special tbh. I've only been attracted to 1 guy shorter than me in my entire life. If I REALLY liked him, I wouldn't let the height thing be a deal-breaker. Oh, and I'm 5'5.

    • I'm 5'2" too and the guys I have dated have been like 5'11" to 6'2", haha. It definitely is frustrating dating someone super tall.

  • Height is not a deal breaker. I am more attracted to taller men, but if I would not turn someone down strictly based on their height.

  • I would definitely date a guy that is short but would be hesitant about dating one who is 2 or 3 inches shorter than me.
    Since I'm 5 foot 4 and as average as can be.. A 5 foot 3 or 5 foot 2 guy is kinda too short. Its obviously not a dealbreaker because if he's super hot and confidant then he could be a fucking hobbit for all I care. But I just find something so sexy about guys that are my height or just ever so slightly taller.
    One of the reasons why sometimes I'd avoid a really short guy is because I'm afraid he'll feel awkward around me. I mean I know lots of guys feel uncomfortable around girls that are a lot taller than them so I feel bad and make an extra effort to boost his sense of alpha male dominance, ultimately adding to the awkwardness.

  • I'm barely 5'3 I just couldn't date a guy shorter than me. I have lots of guy friends that are 5'4 I still wouldn't date them. I feel like it's mean but I don't like (in a romantic sense) guys that are shorter than 5'8

  • No way, because that would be ridiculously short, im 5ft3 myself so just think how would we look like 😂. If I was 5ft11 i dont think I would mind, i actually now a girl who is 5ft10 and her husband is 5ft7 so its not big deal.

  • I'm 5'6 so I'm on the shorter side. Most of the girls I've been involved with have been a little bit shorter than me but I would turn down a girl who was slightly taller than me if she had a bangin' personality. Things will get interesting if she's the heels wearing type of gal though haha.

  • Taller then me huh hmmm it would depend by like how much, I've pretty used to being with smaller women, all the ones I've been with have been short, or fun sized as I call em, and they fit easily into most overhead storage compartments ( Austin Powers reference )

  • 2 of my 4 girlfriends in my life have been an inch or two taller than me. The woman I am working on getting to be with is 5 inches taller than me. We met, I noticed she didn't tower over me, and she did not care in the least about our height difference.

  • I honestly wouldn't mind.
    But there might be a few problems that could arise.
    Firstly, height indicates masculinity to some extend. Her being taller, negates my masculinity (or lack thereof) much further.
    Secondly, I'd have a little trouble attempting to lift her up xD the key problem, honestly.

    But if all these factors could be ignored. Then, why the fuck not? xD
