Is Height an issue to Men?Page 19 of 19    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19)
just why is height an issue anyway.

if a woman doesnt like me simply for my " lack " of height then would i really want to be with a woman that over loks all my other qualities for something as trivial as that.

if i was chatting to a woman on pof and we had lots in common, we spoke on the phone regularly, she was really keen on me, we were getting on really well, she was gorgeous, pretty........everything i was looking for and then i asked her if she wore stockings/suspenders and she replied " urrg oh i never wear anything like that " and i replied " ok i dont really think we should carry on chatting as your not realy the woman for me ". Am i right or am i wrong, is this taking preferences too far. !!!!!!!


Just what is it with women demanding only tall/taller men write to them and any one under blah blah height WILL NOT GET A REPLY.......lol lol lol.

being honest what would most women think upon reading a mans profile if it read ONLY WOMEN WEARING STOCKINGS AND SUSPENDERS ON A REGULAR BASIS MUST WRITE, IF NOT YOU WONT GET A REPLY.

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.

you can still " protect" your girl without having to be taller than her.

it is very " caveman`y" to think like that and any woman who would think like that would be very stupid indeed.

a guy doesnt have to be taller than a woman to protect her, women dont need a guy to be taller to feel protected ............lol

 Maybe Yes...

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.

Personally, I think it may come down to confidence issues.

Taller women feel uncomfortable, awkward and vulnerable with shorter guys and some shorter guys feel emasculated by a taller woman.

There are some studies that suggest there is a genetic element, but I think whilst this may be true to some degree, we are all socially programmed from birth to believe that the man should be taller than his partner, and that anything else is some kind of fringe fetish.

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.
