Im kinda interested in this guy.. everything seems to be going good except I can't get over his height... i know it's stupid and shallow. I'm 5'8 and have always been attracted to taller men, and have only ever dated taller men (at least 2 inches taller) The guy I've been talking to is also 5'8. I'm not the type of girl to wear heels often so that isn't the problem. it's that I feel more feminine and protected by a taller man. So far it doesn't seem to bother him and I know he really likes me. Byt this is the ONLY thing holding me back. Am I being completely shallow? Would this be a deal breaker for you? opinions? advice? Thanks

I was talking to a young woman, same age as you. She is 6'1" and very lonely. She would be happy with any height man, but most men are shorter than she is and won't consider dating her.
I've had a couple of girlfriends almost exactly my height and dated a few other women who are taller than me. All but one of those does professional modeling. It didn't bother me.
I will say that your looking at height is shallow and also common for American women. The top five desired traits in a man by American women are: Tall, good looking, athletic, and physically large (not penis size, bulk). None of these say anything about the person. Meanwhile, there are other cultures who have as top five: Intelligent, good career, educated, kind, same religion. These are all about the person. Think about that.1

Honestly, it's so difficult to find someone that you have that connection and spark with. If you think you found that in someone, don't let a silly thing like height stop you.1
