Well this sounds like a case of materialism to me. If this girl truelly liked you it wouldnt matter what your height was. Sounds like she needs to get her prioiritys straight. And you my freind are lucky that she didnt want to date you,she doesnt even have any values,all she would have done was break your heart.You are fortunate to be rid of her. Cut your losses and move on

Dude move on....she's shallow. If she can't live with your height but likes everything else, then it's only a matter of time before she finds something else she doesn't like about you.

I don't know what's "typical" behavior but I can tell you that I'm 6 feet tall and I've dated guys a heck of a lot more than 1/2 inch shorter than me! Sure, yeah I prefer them closer to my height but only a RETARD would dump a good guy because of 1/2 inch. So....my best guess is that she has a lot more issues going on. Don't worry, FORGET her, MOVE on, because you IMAGINE she is so wonderful, but in reality THIS has been a HUGE warning sign for you. If you like a woman who overreacts about absurd things, then sure...go for it! Marry her, even. But if you want a more mature, intellligent woman, you need to throw that one back and keep on fishing.

I think here in Canada we use a different measuing system. If you say your 5'11 and she says she 5'9, how can you be a 1/2 inch shorter than she? Shouldn't you be 2 inches taller? I am confused. Oh, could it be, you lied?
I think she had a poor reaction but then again, you lied.

well man it does suck that she didnt know her own hight... but yea you could get boots that make u taller! whatever it takes.. to me it sounded like she wanted u to stay over for some fun... when girls tell u they want u to come in then change to something more reliving thats what it normaly means...i cant stay that for every girl cause theres some that test you!! maybe she is just testing you

Yea ^^^^ I'm with "still" on this. I'm thinking the height issue was just an excuse. Since you didn't lie and 1/2 inch is really nothing to sneeze at if you're really connecting ... I'm thinking she may have wanted more.

Actually, I was enjoying reading that you were a "gentleman" and did not push for the whole basket of fruit. Too bad that you two were connecting so nicely and then that happened. Maybe she'll rethink things, but no matter. If she wanted more, she should have just said so and not made up the height thing.

If it really was the height thing ... then that's stupid ... you don't need that!

well this height issue was a first for me. Thankyou for your input. She still calls and wants to hang out and stuff.. I wasn't about to spank a girl that I liked on the first date. If thats what was expected then thats not someone I want to date. I can go to the bar and pick up any girl to do that with.. Been there, done that.. I'm looking for a "good" girl. But I hear they don't exist! Thanks everyone and good luck to all!!!

DUDE!!! the only thing to say is that this woman has some kind of super soacial complex,in other words she would be to embarrased to be seen in public with because that means she's the alpha male.unfortantley women now days are more into public image than they are realism
(and they **** at us for not bieng real)point is god made you the way he did and that's the most immportant thing thier are alot of good women in the world still,we just have to find them,keep looking and forget what's her name

@BarnBabe ... wait a minute ... OP said he went home and re-measured himself and he was still the same height as he reported and is in his profile. She is apparently taller than she said!

You know the thought occurs to me that she's taller than she said and embarrassed about it and that could be her problem.

Anyone who would have such an emotional breakdown over a half an inch has some deep insecurities. It wasn't about whether she liked you or not, it was about whether you would look good standing next to her when she introduced you to her friends. You are better off finding a great down to earth girl who doesn't value appearance as much as they do quality...

As it sounds to me it wasn`t really the height issue, it was probally she expected more than just a hug and a kiss. I would prefer honesty up frontt which she did not do, than to have someone come up with a lame excuse as height.

I am assuming that you ARE 5' 11", and NOT 5' 8" because a lack of inches is not really easy to hide. I have to say that I am not interested in men who are shorter than me, which is crazy, but, it is a parent thing, My Dad was taller than my Mum, and 2 years older, so that, to me is the way it should be (my perfect man who I have recently lost is 6' and 10 years older, and that seems perfect now).
Yes, if you have your heart set on a partner who is taller than you, then you do turn down the guy who is ideal in other ways to wait for the one who you think is perfect. If the thing that you don't like is in your face all the time, like your partner being shorter than you would be, then it is far more annoying to you than the fact that he likes football and you don't, or something else that is not there all the time, but really is more of a problem.

Hey yeah i would be bummed to but to be honest some girls just cant get passed certian things and she probably felt really self concious about her height growing up and dating shorter guys might just be to weird even though half a inch is kinda ridiculous well actually the whole situation is but thats just her.She might have to wait for this taller guy for the rest of her life if she keeps turning down perfectly good men

You didn't make a move. She has a hidden standard. That standard is.."If the guy isn't man enough to go for it then he's out." Sorry man.

I KNOW THAT IM TALL AND I DONT LIKE TO DATE GUYS SHORTER ONLY BECAUSE THATS HOW I AM. BUYT IF U READ SOMEONES PROFILE AND THAT IS AN ISSUE THATS THE TIME TO FIND OUT,NOT AFTER FIRST DATE.I SAY U R A CUTE GUY, ULL FIND SOMEONE WHOSE NOT HUNG UP ON STUPID SHIT LIKE THAT,AND SHE WILL LOVE YOU AND HAVE ALL THE GUALITIES YOU R LOOKIN FOR. SHE MAY BE, AND PROBABLY WILL BE, BETTER THAN WHAT U THINK U HAve given up w/her. JUST DONT INVEST ANYMORE TIME IN THIS GIRL, ITS NOT WORTH IT.ANYONE WHO IS THAT SHALLOW IS NOT WORTH UR LOVE OR UR TIME. GOOD LUCK TO U AND I KNOW YOU WILL FIND THAT SPECIAL PERSON SOON, JUST DONT GIVE UP AND DONT INVEST ANYMORE OF UR THOUGHTS OR TIME WITH THAT!!!! TAKE CARE PS, I AM A WOMAN!
