Shorter man Taller womanPage 5 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
My ideal is 1-6 inches shorter than me, since I am 5.5 one hopes people can do the math. I have on my bucket list a desire to try a standing 69, so I really need a short thin woman.

When I was young I was severely limited in that regard, I was together with my first GF for 10 years, she was 5.7 and really too big for any weird standing positions. I cried myself to sleep often over this unfortunate dilemma.

I'm 6' tall and NOT a small gal!! :P

I get approached by guys shorter than me all the time... and I HAVE tried to date shorter/smaller guys... but in the end it was just awkward for me!! I guess it's because I feel more feminine when I'm with a guy that's taller/bigger than I am verse feeling even BIGGER cause he's shorter/smaller!! *shrug*

I can date someone a couple inches shorter than me, no problem, as long as he's not really THIN on top of being shorter!! :P

THAT is pretty much THE height thing, in a nutshell... Women don't feel as feminine, or 'delicate' (for lack of a better word) when they tower over the guy. If you notice shorter guys that have taller girlfriends, they are usually BUILT, or at least stocky enough of a size that the lady still looks somewhat 'smaller'. The stereotypical short, fat and jolly guy also can have his share of girlfriends for pretty much the same reason.

I'm 5'8" and work out constantly, so slow-but-sure I am shedding body fat and getting lean, but I don't power lift my arms and shoulders as much because of soreness from playing sports. I could have ripped abs, but ladies don't see that in the wintertime - they just see my thinner arms. Guys with the big shoulders DO get noticed a helluva lot more attention than skinny guys, even if they have a a little extra baggage above the belt. I know guys at the gym who don't ever do cardio exercise - they just power lift shoulders, arms, and bench presses.

Confidence still reigns supreme when it comes to meeting women, but having big shoulders and arms definitely helps.

ive dated a girl who was taller than me, and i wont lie at first it was a little awkward. but after we got over that it was like dating any other girl, i was able to "man handle" her just fine.

i seem to prefer taller girls... not necessarily taller than me but tall for someone my height im 5' 9'' and i think 5' 6'' and up is perfect

I have never turned down a man because of his height.

I am 6'2, and find that a lot of guys (and people in general) get scared off by my height >_< Sad, but true. Still, the ones who decide to stick around are usually the ones worth knowing. Things only get awkward if people make it awkward.

I am a bit over 5 10, when younger I hit 5 11 and dated several men at the five four mark. Once my partner and I were in a club dancing together and I was wearing heelss and when we came back his friends had as a jokingly put some phonebooks on his chair. He had a really good sense of humor so I took the phonebooks set them on the floor stood on them and fervently kissed him. We all had a good laugh..

Boundaries don't make sense when neither person is insecure and don't care what other people think.

My xgf is 6'3. We still talk and hang out and never had an issue with height. I thought it was amusing to watch people look at us when we went out places. I liked her height and wouldn't hesitate to date a taller woman again. I think if a tall woman is afraid to date a shorter man, she is insecure. If a short woman is afraid to date a short man, she is insecure. If a man is afraid to date a taller woman, he's insecure.

I prefer stronger minded women (tall or short) that aren't afraid to date shorter men.

Most women that I dated and/or had sex with were much shorter than me. That's because of the laws of probability. Most women in general are much shorter than me. However I did date a few women that were only about 1-2 inches shorter than me. The only major difference I noticed that I didn't have to slouch as much when dancing or kissing them. Height didn't make any difference during sex.

A co-worker of one of my friends is a single mom who doesn't get out much, so we bring her along when she gets free time. She's an absolute knockout, and likes wearing heels. She's ALL legs. She's maybe 1 inch taller than me, but we found out her inseam is about 3-4 inches longer. What that means is sitting at bar stools, if she slouches even a little bit, she looks like somebody that's 5'5" or so - but when she stands up in her heels, she's darn near 6 feet. She gets approached often, but the look on some guy's faces that are hitting on her when they see her stand up is just priceless.

That's actually the farthest thing from the truth. I'm personally not attracted to shorter guys - it has nothing to do with a societal thing, or insecurity, it's just a physical attraction aspect.

I have tried dating women who are as tall or taller than me. I kept telling myself it didn't matter but I was just kidding myself. It was always a deal breaker and I just didn't feel right with her.

There is just something about a women looking up at you ... sweeping her literally off the ground to kiss her. Having her head lying on your chest while you are slow dancing.... etc ... like the OP said in the original post, it is tied directly to what I find sexy about a woman and I doubt it will ever change.

Most people will agree with that sentiment - men and women. What I don't get is the math some people use to determine their height preferences. Six to eight inches taller at MINIMUM? That's over-compensating for that 'feeling' a bit. Heels or no heels.

People are ALWAYS exaggerating what they want - so looking for someone 'lean' tends to mean obviously ripped abs instead of just having a bicycle-sized spare tire; stuff like that.

Looking for visible 'perfection' before attempting an online conversation is a key reason why online dating won't work. Most people get overlooked, and the 'Hot' ones get too much attention and get annoyed.

Relationships work by 'dealing' with whatever life dishes out, so if you are not willing to step up and WORK on a relationship with anyone below your ideal magical match; you are clearly making a statement that you do NOT feel adequate for the trials and tribulations of a REAL relationship.

OP, heightism, like racism, and agism are sooooooooo last eon. If you guys like each other, go for it. Forget about all this shallow, archaic programming from the caveman days.

Because of my height, I never dated a woman that was taller than me. However I did date a few that were close to my height. Didn't make any difference to me except ( as mentioned by another poster ) I didn't have to slouch as much when dancing or kissing them.
