A question for the women!

Do you find men who are your height or smaller attractive? The answers to this might be interesting.

i will be honest and say i do prefer taller but it doesn't really matter. im not going to not date someone because he's shorter than me.
that would rule out too many babes! lol

Well, since I'm almost 5'10", I do find someone around 5'10"- 6'+ very attractive.

Of course, that's not the most important thing. A shorter guy who has many other special qualities is great too

Unfortunately SOME 'shorter' guys don't care for taller women.

Good question! I've never really thought about all that!

I suppose I generally fancy someone a tad taller than me. I am 5'3" so it usually isn't a problem finding someone taller than me!

As tall or a wee bit taller is good for me, but I'm not going to discriminate against height. That would be shallow.

I'm short (5'5") and The Man is 6'3" at least, but I do find the pocket-sized men very attractive, too!

I'm only 5'1 so finding a guy any height is no prob for me. My friend is average size and her boyfriend chris is the same height. She says she likes it that way cos they see eye to eye.

I like the way you put that, martha

BTW, I'm 5'5" too, I think that's average for a woman

The guy HAS to be taller than me, but i'm average height for a girl, so its never been a problem.
5'9 or over is definitely preferable,though.

I have a wide range of height tastes, but I do have to say that my target range is about two inches shorter than me (my height is 5'7") to about a half-foot taller. I don't like bending down to kiss a guy, and I think it looks funny when a girl comes up to her man's chest. I dunno why, but it seems like a waste of a tall man for all those tall ladies.

as I am quite tall I generally like Men who are taller than me, but I have been out with a guy who was considerably shorter than me and it never bothered me- in all honesty and I know that this sounds so corny, but for me looks and physical apperance are secondary, it really is what is the personality and the sense of humour that are the biggest turn ons for me

no, that doesnt sound corny at all...I agree 100%! I'd rather have a short, sweet guy, with a great personality and sense of humor, than some tall jerk with no personality and looks only

I'm six feet tall and it seems like most guys are shorter than me. I couldn't really see myself being with someone way shorter than me, though I know that's shallow. I just like it if a guy can look me in the eye. He can be shorter than me, but not so that it's majorly noticeable--maybe two or three inches. I really like guys who are about six-two or six-three. As I have mentioned elsewhere in this forum, I am currently somewhat obsessed with the lead singer of Midnight Oil, who is very tall--estimates of his height seem to range from six-four to seven feet (no one seems sure of the truth!)

But hey, it's not like guys of any height seem to be after me. You're all afraid of tall girls, or else something else is wrong with me.
