I'm barely 5'1 (but I wear my height well :) and I met a guy who is definitely under 5'7"... he's taller than me but he is SHORT.
Thing is, we have great chemistry and he's funny and smart and has a good job, and I find him attractive.
But yeah, and he's way shorter than me, most of the guys I've dated were anywhere from 5'11 to 6'2. My last serious boyfriend was 6'1.
Am I being superficial? I told a girlfriend (who's my height) about this guy, and she scrunched her face up and acted a bit judgmental.
Ladies, what do you think?

Isn't dating and romantic/sexual relationships generally pretty superficial in most cases anyway?
That's why some people we decide to date, because we like some part about them physically, in comparison to people who we keep as friends. Of course chemistry is another factor, but shallow or not, we date to have sex and ultimately procreate. Keeping that in mind, naturally we'll prefer those who are better looking or more with the societal ideals.
I would definitely know a thing or two about that. I'm 5'10, in a relationship with someone who's shorter than me. It bugged me initially. More like the negative attention I felt we drew in from others, whether it was from strangers or my own friends asking if his height doesn't bother me as if he's a martian or something. I dismissed it as long as I could, till I realized why the fuck am I feeling uncomfortable being with him because of OTHER people's opinions, not my own?
If you're happy with your boyfriend, that's all that matters the most. Other people will always find a reason to hate or critique.1
