WOMEN: What is the ideal height difference between a man and a woman?Page 2 of 14    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)
I completely agree with you. If the height requirement happens it happens but absolutely MUST NOT BE A DAMN REQUIREMENT!!! I totally agree 2 to 4 inches MAX is the perfect enough for a guy to be taller than her. When a guy that is a foot taller than her I guess then the lady is going to have to start wearing 6" to 10" heals lol!! If women have so high height requirements then men should have their requirements. If women want shuch tall guys and they are so damn short then when they go out the men should have their women wear super super tall heals like 6, 8, 9, 10 inch heals LOL then they will start to learn with all the broken ankles that 2 to 4 inches taller than her is perfect and women will get over there height fetish real quick.

7-9 inches taller feels best to me, but at least 5 inches taller. My average shoe is about 2 or 2.5 inches. Although most of the men on here are using some strange, alternate form of measurement so maybe I should say even taller.

Well since I have dated men that were 2-3 inches shorter than me(in bare feet) to about 10 inches taller than me, um............

I would have to say tall enough not to talk to my boobs when barefoot and short enough I don't need a step stool for a kiss.

The major turn off though is the attitude that some have because of their height. Napolean complex and Adonis complex are never sexy or appealing. Oh and men that have hang-ups if my six-inch platforms make me taller than them! I love my plat boots and heels, so I am not giving them up for someone else's insecurity.

Preferably taller than me, I'm 4'11" (so not too hard to find someone taller... ) I have a guy friend who says that I'm the perfect height (he's 5'9"). I once dated a guy that was 6'3", it was great cuz he could get stuff out of the top cupboards, but other then that it was awkward.

That depends on how insecure the person is I guess. Since most of society is superficial, often after many trials and errors, people settle down to what feels comfortable for them. As stated earlier, females find taller males more attractive because it gives them a sense of security.

There is this one girl, who is 4'11 wanting guys over 6'. Being crude, I wrote her to inform her that sold buckets, so that she could purchase one in order to stand on to kiss em.

As long as you dont mind breasts poking you in the eye, or resting an elbow on your head, whatever goes for you.

Ideal height for me would be my height, makes it easy to see eye to eye. It doesn't really matter though, I have no issues with women who are taller or shorter than I am.

I like them as tall as possible. I'm just attracted to tall...sometimes 'freakishly tall' men. But I'm short, so as long as the guy is my height or taller I'm game. I've met one man in my life that was shorter than me...he was a little person, I'm 5'1".

Silentman...It is too bad that women don't think logically like you do. A women's thought process is based on emotions and not logic. If women used logic this wouldn't be an issue and we wouldn't be hearing these stupid reasons that a man has to be taller or has to reach a certain height.

I am still waiting for weight to be an actual number on here to level the playing field.

Being tall for a guy is kind of a pain. I'm 6'6" and find it definitely limits the women I'd date. I'd find it hard to date someone under 5'5". At my brother's wedding, I was the best man and the made of honor was 5' even. When I walked her down the aisle after the ceremony, the photographer took our picture and it's just funny. She's only a few years younger than me, but it looked like I'm walking my little kid sister down or something.

At 5'1, I don't really care. Most men are taller than I am. I can't really date shorter men because that would be little people.

I'm 5'4" and the men I have dated (or married) range from 5'2" to 6'4" (I have no height preferences or requirements).

But since you asked, the sweetest height differential for me is probably about 3-4" to an upper range of 6" - no kinks in the neck and all of the bits line up just f-i-n-e.

Wow, I'm glad to see how critical heels are when a woman is looking for the right man. Scratching people off your list based on the height difference when you are in your 3, 4, or 5 inch heels is ridiculous!!! It's funny how the majority of average height women have no problem with average height men, but very short women don't even accept average height men. My sister is just under 5 foot 7 and has dated guys from 5 foot 6 to 6 foot 4. She says that tiny little short women want very tall guys because they are insecure about their own height. I think she is right. I don't buy the "wanting to be protected thing"...women of avergae height don't feel this need for height. I think the short women confuse the need to feel protected thing for INSECURITY!!!
I can understand taller women who ar 5 foot 8 or 5 foot 10 wanting a guy over 6 feet..that makes some sense.
Also, with everybody's response about heels...i.e. a girl 5 foot 4 wearing 3 inche heels makes her 5 foot 7, so she wants a guy 2 inches taller than that, which equates to
5 foot 9. Well, what the heck, do these guys go barefoot when the women wear heels? Please add 1 to 1.5 inches to a guys height for his shoes too!!!! If he is goign to wear cowboy boots then pump him up by 2.5 inches!! Maybe us guys should start judign how much shorter a girl is when we are wearing cowboy boots....yeah, yeah know how critical and important they are!!!

Newworldman, although I'm 4'9" and my late hubby was 6' 4 1/2", we didn't know that when we first started chatting by phone, and both of us knew from things that were brought out in the conversation that we were the one for each other (something unusual and wonderful, but I won't go into details). When we got to height information, I was afraid my shortness would be a deal-breaker, and he was afraid his height would be a problem for me. Of course, it wasn't for either of us.

Who cares about the 'packaging'? It's the person inside the time-space-suit that counts.

Taller than me, but not so tall that you can't match your steps when walking hand in hand, b/c his legs are so long you are out of sync.
Off topic but a funny story,
I had a really short land lord who was eye level w/my chest, he never did see my face, he looked directly at my breasts when speaking to me, I don't ever recall him looking me in the eyes. To this day I'm sure he can't identify me by my face...lol

at 5'3 im quite a short guy. It does sometimes make things tough when a girl finds this out she is suddenly no longer interested. I just figure if something like that is that much of a problem its no loss to me.

Ironically my longest relationship was 4 years or so was with a girl who was 5'5. The only time it became "weird" was when she would wear massive heels.but even then, she wore them for herself and didnt care what it looked like in public with me walking arm in arm.

Im most attracted to shorter girls, my height or less but it really makes no difference to me. Sometimes i click with someone much taller, so be it.

Personally I like men who are 1-5 inches taller, I am 5'8,
that being said my first husband was 5'3... awkward to me because I felt huge next to him, personal hangup I know but who wants to feel like a freak next to their mate?

welll I am 5'9 so they have to be my height or taller, any shorter, even 5'8 and i want nothing to do with them. I like to wear high heels still too, so sometimes even 5'9 bothers me if i'm like at a bar or something, you know all dressed up. Women aren't meant look down at men. So I want nothing to do with short men, i don't care how 'nice' they are. They have to be tall. Besides, short men aren't sexy.

I can only speak for myself =)...
I'm 5'1 and with heels I'm 5'5 or 5'4.
Therefore, I prefer a guy to be atleast 5'8...and the max to be 6 feet.

i face the same issue.

Comes down to 2 things.

1) find a girl that dosent care shes teller. I did for about 4 years, she was 5'5 and didnt care i was 5'3

2)find a girl who is shorter. There is lots of short girls around :)

I am only 4 feet 8. so sometimes it is a challenge for me. SOME men find it CUTE.. some dont. for me if a man is 6 feet or just over that, it's fine. I can deal. I like a big guy anyway!

There is no "ideal height", it's whatever two people find acceptable. Now I do read a lot of womens profiles that say they want a man who is 5'10 or taller, like 5'10 is somehow the magic number. I'm 5'10 and I do find shorter women more attractive, maybe it's human nature?

Guess I escaped the limiter at 5'11'' like Brad Pitt.

At the end of the day, we are what we were created to be and height shouldn't be the deciding factor when it comes to dating, IMO.

I don't project my insecurities onto someone else nor do i want to... that's why I simply avoid shorter men altogether... problem eliminated.
