Ladies, how important is a man's height to you? In our society you rarely see a couple where the woman is taller than the man. Would you date a guy who is shorter than you? I am far from being on the tall side. Have noticed in may profiles that women are seeking guys who are taller than they are. Am I doomed because of my height, or is it all in my head.
Cathii write: I am 5'6 and personally like taller guys, that is not to say that i wouldnt date a shorter guy, but i dont like the look of a tall woman or woman in heels with a really short guy...the visual of the guys head as an arm rest, just dont cut it for me.
Well I'm 5'9, so if you wore 3" heels we'd be the same height!
I like tall men, just as I like rasberry jam or horror movies. Doesn't mean I can't eat PB or watch a drama and think they're worth trying. I've been attracted to men who were shorter/younger/other item on grocery list, and the fact that they didn't have that extra inch or year didn't weigh much when I thought about what it was about them that constantly made me think about them. I think men (and yes, women) who limit themselves to a certain height are essentially just putting off getting to know awesome people and enriching their lives.
It's the most important thing to me - i know im sounding shallow here but im 5ft10 and i KNOW i look daft walking with a guy shorter than me!! To be honest personality is the main thing i look for but i have to feel comfortable with the guy im walking next to as well and i never feel right with a shorter guy.
I am 5'9". My fiance is 5'6". I weigh 340lbs. He weighs 160lbs. He loves me BETTER than any man that I have known. Even the one's who where over 6' tall. I know that there is a "standard" where the man is taller and bigger, but in our relationship, I don't feel submissive to him nor do I feel dominant over him. What I do feel is comfortable and safe, emotionally and physically. I have always felt feminine, so his size does not de-feminize me just because I am bigger nor does my size emasculate him just because he is smaller.
I don't know how to explain it, but our size difference has never bothered me. I won't lie and say that I have not been aware of some reactions that we get when we enter a restaurant or when we are in public. I have to say that most of the comments were funny to me rather than hurtful. When my friend asked me what I was doing with a "little white man", I told her that if she could be me for a day, she would go out and get her a "little white man", too.
Sorry for going on and on, but to me, the size of my man's heart overrid any apprehensions that I could have had about his size.
I would have to say that yes height matters to me. Being large and tall I would feel like a freak, and be afraid of hurting him. I have some good friends who are almost a foot shorter than me and I feel like the Jolly Green Giant when I am with them.I know it isn't right but I can't help how I feel.
How ever go to the romance board, there is a thread there by women who like shorter men.
