Height is only important if the man is too tall for me. I just don't find tall men attractive too much. I go for the shorter ones.

Hi: depends on the woman you are dating, is she shallow? I am not, the person I would like for a partner would have beauty inside, so height is not important

For all those people claiming "Oh, they're just shallow", does thinking that way make you feel better about being rejected?

You know the answer to that already. It's yes for most people; that's human nature.


Have you excepted a date with every single person who ever asked you out?

Yes. 99% sure anyway.


Would you have sex with someone you were in no way were attracted to that made you cringe?

I've done just that, and wouldn't turn down sex again if it were available! I even did it with someone I had trouble keeping it up for - and the plumbing was working just fine.


Would you want a partner who made you cringe at the very thought of kissing him or her?

I don't actively desire a partner like that, but I have settled for someone I didn't like kissing. It beats fapping.

Brown Eyed Angel ,

Everyone has an attraction scale going from " Attractive enough " to " OMG ! "

Some are willing to give those they find attractive enough a shot , some aren't.

For example, a woman might find a profile of a guy she finds attractive and like what he wrote in his profile BUT ... she decides he's not attractive ENOUGH - call it shallow, picky, greedy ?

Of course you want to be attracted but how much ?

Can they be kinda cute or do they HAVE TO BE drop dead gorgeous ?

Not hugely important, but I don't see myself dating women in the 5 to 5'3 range.

Well, lessssseeeeeee........ The last time I thought about height was either in 4th grade, or when I fell off my dinosaur......... It's been so long, I really can't remember.............

I'm a little weird about height in some instances. I don't mind someone really tall in the slightest, however, I do put a limit on shortness. But that's only because I've been with people who were a bit short (though the shortest was 5'2" and I'm 5'10"), and it just felt a bit weird to me.

It is not important to me. I do tend to be partial to women in the five foot range, give or take a couple inches.

As long as he's taller than me, & not shorter than me, that's all I ask. There are other things more important. I met a man who gave me the impression he was a lot taller than he was, when we met, I towered over him, & I'm only 5'5.
I don't want a guy that is eye level to my t*ts, or is so short he can rest his head on my boobs when we slow dance, lol.

The only time I worry about height is when I'm looking for players on my volleyball team...

It's funny how people love to throw around the word shallow, lol. Shallow would be if someone was interested in looks ONLY. People tend to go for attraction first as that's natural human nature, we feel it or we don't. Those who don't care about the person they're attracted to having a good personality or being compatible would be an accurate definition of shallow. Yes, the inside matters a great deal but you need to feel attracted to your mate as well. For me, it was never about seeking out the most attractive man, but I did seek out the one's I felt attracted to. Attraction draws us in and then we learn about the person inside.


It's okay for a woman to be physically attracted to taller men. However many women want taller men because of stereotypical reasons. Such as taller men can "protect" women better, short men have Napoleon Complex, taller men have better genes and larger penises. One woman in a different height thread even stated that short men are abusive. These generalizations are often based from a few bad experiences with a shorter man.

I'll search online for anything from 4'10" to 5'10" - I'm 5'8", and would have no problem dating a gal who's a healthy 6-footer, but I'm also realistic about online expectations - the chance of finding a tall gal in here that wants to go shorter are somewhere between slim and none, so it is really NOT worth attempting a search. That being said, I WILL mix up search specs every so often to see what new faces shuffles into the mix, but for the most part dating taller is NOT an effective strategy.

I'm 5' ft even and the last guy I dated was 6'3. It looked kinda odd to me cause of the huge height difference, but it didn't seem to bother him. He even told me he dated a girl that was 4'11 once. I guess maybe I should wear some heels next time..lol

I'm a whopping 5'4" (I say in jest) but I am much more comfortable with a man at least 6" taller than I am. This is just a personal choice for me. I would much rather have a man 6' or over though.

I'm 5'7" and my last girlfriend was 5 feet tall. I have no height preference. Short Shakira is hot, and tall Jessica Biel is hot. I'm not sure when in our lives we decided that tall or short is more attractive. Whatever that was, I was never exposed to it. Still, being short I tend to ignore women taller than 5'3". Unless they're ugly/fat, then maybe I can upgrade to 5'6".

My last girlfriend preferred tall guys. She only had one other boyfriend shorter than 6 feet tall. I'm not sure what she saw in me. At one point she said she liked me more than any other boyfriend she had. We're not together anymore though and I'm guessing my short stature had nothing to do with it. If anything, my small pecker, but definitively not my height.
