I guess I'm curious whether women really consider this a deal breaker and why. I am currently really interested in a guy; I met him online; and in person I found out he is maybe 5'2, a little shorter than me or my height. And scrawny. When I told my mom, my older cousin, my friends.. They told me to drop him and were shocked and acted like it was such a big deal. I didn't even tell them in a negative way, I was just like he's so little! With a smile on my face. It didn't change my opinion about him, I dig him just as much... But it took me forever to actually meet the guy because he kept putting it off. Do you think he was nervous I'd reject him because of his height? Do guys really feel bad about being short? And thin?

Most Helpful Guy
I'm really short myself so I know how it feels to have women pass me by just because I don't measure up vertically. I'd have no problems dating a taller girl but the only reason I don't go for it is because I assume she wouldn't be interested in dating someone shorter.
Unfortunately, what's even worse is friends and family can even be turned off by of their daughter/sister/cousin/friend dating a short guy, even though they are not involved in any way.
He may have possibly been anxious to meet you because of his lack of height. He may have thought yoh would have rejected him right off the bat. That's possibly the biggest reason why I'd never participate in online dating. I doubt him being thin is a problem though. Seems to me as if height is the biggest physical quality most women value above most in a guy.1
