Is Height an issue to Men?


If she is only 6 inches tall, it probably won't ever happen.


if I ever meet a woman taller than me, I'm running in the opposite direction as fast as I can! PERIOD!


But if she was taller than you, she could probably catch up

in reference to "height as an issue" at-first-sight and not as "height as an issue" later on in a relationship.........
a modicum of we wimmins just seem to first zoom in/lock-n-load on an unsuspecting target....er, I mean, "potential" that is tall enough to seem tall to us and whatever our individual stature is. I'm 5' 2"-3"ish and a man 5' 10" seems tall to me, but oddly have felt very comfortable with men over 6'.

speaking only for myself, it's just one of those visceral pulls, everyone has a preference that kinda overrides all logic. hair (color, lack of, style) combined with mouth, voice, body type, whatever, are equal for all sexual beings in that we all can have that initial "punch" with certain people.
perhaps for some women, a taller man fills an ingrained sense of comfort or protection, hell I don't know, it's just one of those "feelings" that some men infect us with.

for me, being short already and all/any other circumstances, the odds of dating men shorter than myself is moot, nor would I predict height being "an issue" unless he was uber height-challenged.
oh wait.
how short are we talking about?
mm. maybe I should rethink this.....

innocently replying...
why not? if he infected me with impure thoughts...really, it's the right combination at the right time that snags us, if we mesh and complement there's no reason why not to. but, we don't know that till after the initial lust-at-first-sight-look-at-him-he's-tall/short/bald/yummy/whatever that catches our eye.

are we talking Tom Thumb pocket size or Michael J. Fox large tote size?

If I'm 5'11 (in heels) and he's 5'2"... standing toe to toe, I know what's catching His eye.

mz, leave it to you to work in a fashion analogy. You go Fashionista-Gurl!

Scooch, are you telling us you fudged your height? Personally the height issue is moot. My preferences are for men who know grammar and capitalization.

Suspenders seems like such a butch word, why not use "garters?" More genteel and ladylike.

Suspenders makes me think of those dreamy yellow outfits firemen wear. Maybe I could put that under preferences.

The answer is yes. Seeing eye to eye is important. It's not the endall, but it is something high up on my list right now.

Height is just a number....just like age. It's all about the connection between the two.

Yes. I prefer a girl to be at least a few inches shorter than me. I know it's caveman'y of me, but I want to feel like I'm my girl's protector.
 Maybe Yes...

women dont need a guy to be taller to feel protected

sooooo true.

Our bodies are just vessels for our souls.
I do not get why some people are soooo hung up about height, something that can not be changed.

There are a lot of very cute shorter women that are great packages and if the right one does come along I will know it and height will not be an issue at all, but I cannot get away from hoping to find the tall, fairly thin, not model thin, not necessarily athletic, but well taken care of by herself, girly girl type of lady. It's just my preference. I prefer a regular rack too, not too big and not too small.

I married shorter with a small rack. I want something different this time around, which is actually what I've always wanted. I settled when I got married and it didn't work. If the looks aren't there to begin with and the attitude that really attracted you inspite of the lack of perfect looks goes bad, it's really hard to love unconditionally.

Noooo? What makes you think that? My profile says I'm 5'-10". If you look how I fit in the doorway next to me in my picture, you would see that I'm not fudging my height.

I can say I know of only one woman in High School that was taller than me. I was somewhat intimidated by her. Sadly, she was a very nice person and I do regret that I did not get to know her better. For the most part I usually am taller than the lady. At 6' 2" tall there weren't very many as tall as me. Of course, it would be nice not to have to kneel down all the time too.

I prefer to date women shorter then myself, but it doesn't mean that I won't give them a shot.
