I wouldn’t mind, only because I’m like 5’7 1/2 and most guys are usually a bit shorter than me or a bit taller, but thankfully since I’m in my sophomore year of high school most of the boys FINALLY got their growth spirt, but like I said I wouldn’t mind as long as he isn’t shorter than like 5’2 or 5’3 something- even then the height difference would look kinda odd. 🤷🏾♀️10
I've liked shorter guys before. One guy had a very attractive face and good personality and was super nice to me - another guy was insanely smart.0
Yeah, no problem. I don't really have any "requirements" on someone's height, but I'd be a little bit more attracted over someone that is very tall over someone very short, all else equal. (But short is fine too.)0
How could any healthy person desire a midget? (In reference to that photo)
I would, but she would really need to be special. I seem to be more attracted to women who are shorter than me.11
What Girls & Guys Said
In fact, I think that my 2nd girlfriend eventually grew to be taller than me while we were together.14
No, I don't think I could.
I'm only 153 cm, he would have to be extremely short. And I'm not into guys that short.
I'm used to most people being taller than me. Heck, someone who's only 14 can easily be taller than me.10
Yes I would date someone taller than me but preferably not too much taller. I'm 5' 7" and I think once someone is over 6' 0" I start feeling like a child. That being said, if it feels like they're awesome in every other way, I hope I wouldn't let the height difference get in the way.20
No I’d probably not date A guy shorter than me.
First I’m only 5’1” and I could probably count on one hand the number of guys I’ve met personally shorter than me
Second I don’t want to have tiny kids
Third , I’m not attracted to tiny guys.17
I did. I’m 5’11 and he was 5’7. I stopped noticing after a while.41
I'm usually a same height or taller type of girl... I'm only 5'5 so I have quite a bit of wiggle room...30
If she's only a little taller, sure. If it's pretty significant, then i'm more likely to say no than yes.10
I'm 5'3. My ex was 5'11. It's all about personality and character. You're missing out on some great people over an immutable quality.10
While I have a general height preference as well, it's never a "deal breaker". If I like her, yes of course. I'm not going to reject someone because of their height and something that they have no control over. There's more to a person than that.10
I prefer a taller woman for a multitude of reasons, shorter never really appealed to me personally.20
No girl deserves to marry a manlet subhuman. Taller is always better.
I'm 6'3 so finding women my height is very hard, I wouldn't be opposed to it though.10
No. But then again I’m 4’11 so it’s hard to find a guy that’s shorter to begin with.20
I have before but I wouldn’t again just personal preference12
Yup, I definitely would. Look at any hot actor - girls would still be all over them even if they were short. It's not the height that matters. It's the face0
I'm 5'3 and it's rare I find men shorter than me. I don't really think I could do it since I'd feel more masculine. He would have to have a spot on personality tbh.0
Heck yeah if he was decent human being but there aren't that many men shorter than me 5'1"0
Yeah sure. Especially since it's pretty rare to find a girl taller than 6'3
If a gal has a great personality, is taller than me, and genuinely likes me then of course0
Her heights does not matter to me. I am at the perfect height for dating women of almost any height. Even if a woman is taller than me it would not be by much.0
I dated a taller woman for a few months. Doggy style was like watching a great dane get humped by a corgi. Got a charley horse midway through because of how i had to stand. I'm 5'9" and she was 6'4" at the time, with my luck she grew another foot.10

Such a hot topic these days!
I like that someone asked you why you were asking, and it was about your girl friend who rejected a guy slightly shorter.
I personally always see it as being about proportion (one person to the other), and I have heard this from many others as well. (I think it might be similar to men talking about breast size on women - the good guys say they are very flexible and open to many sizes, so long as the breasts are proportional to her overall figure - men, do you generally agree?)
I would always also prefer to be with a man taller than me, but not a lot taller. I married someone my same height (and we are average height). And to be completely honest, when a woman is with a man the same height (and shorter, I would imagine), from a distance or in the dark, people sometimes do mistake the other person for another female. So, like if you go to a dimly restaurant for dinner in the evening, it's not very pleasant when the hostess accidentally says, "Right this way, Ladies." This has happened to me many times. And then once they notice their mistake they often are embarrassed, but there's nothing really to say at that point. Mostly this happens because of height and stature, but it has also happened when the man's hair is longer.
Also, women (and probably all people) do feel physically a bit safer when with a larger person standing next to them. This is no news to anyone - larger framed people feel less vulnerable.
So I do think it's shallow and vain to choose partners based on things like height. And I don't do that. But in defence of some people, there is a biological component of greater safety to it, and it is understandable to feel very uncomfortable when gender mistakes are made. I just have different priorities (personality and compatability being paramount), and don't believe in bowing to societal pressures. Live your life, I say. And I'd rather have a fascinating and fun person to talk to than it be all about superficial things one can't change. You can only look at a pretty picture for so long before getting kind of bored.
