QUESTION: Ladies, would you ever date someone shorter than you? I know it's shallow but I'm interested in a guy who's an inch shorter than I am and it already gets pointed out even though we aren't together.

  1. Probably not, but not because other people point it out. It would be just because I like to feel like the man is bigger than me. I mean if i really met the right guy I guess I could overlook it but, for a general rule i want to feel engrossed by him.

    If you're interested in him have enough self confidence to trust your instinct and disregard the opinions of (probably retarded) people.

  2. Yes, it was fine.

    Learn how to say 'So what?' to people who point out arbitrary physical differences.

  3. Yes, I've been incredibly attracted to men shorter than myself and I'm of average height. Would you cheat yourself from happiness to conform to someone else's ideals?

    Plug for dating that short guy:

  4. I'm 5'6, the last guy I was in love with was 5'3, so yeah. Height doesn't matter. Don't listen to the haters.

  5. No. in fact the guy has to be at least 5 inches taller so i'm still shorter than him in heels.

  7. I think females responding to this should state their height so we can tell if their answers are related to their height.

    1. Because no one lies about their height on the internet

  8. Admitting to yourself that you're generally interested in taller guys is acceptable: people have their own tastes.
    Specifically not dating a guy you're ALREADY INTERESTED IN simply because he's short, and then only because of other people's comments, would make you shallow.
    Date the guy.

  9. No, I'm already pretty annoyed that I'm taller than all my friends, regardless of gender. Being taller than a guy, even if it's just slightly taller, I don't feel comfortable. I'm shallow, I know, but height difference matters to me significantly.

  11. I'm about 5'4, and it's just a personal preference that I don't date anyone that's shorter than me.

    If you like the guy and he likes you too, there should be no reason for height to be a reason you will not date each other...It doesn't matter what people think. It matters what you and your partner like.

  12. I'm 5' 5 female and when it comes to dating, I prefer a male that is close to my own height. If he is much shorter than me, I would feel uncomfortable. However, If he is much taller than me, maybe over 5' 8 or 5' 9 I feel uncomfortable as well. Just a little bit taller, same height, or a little bit shorter is best. However, when wearing heels, I hope he doesn't mind me being the taller one. But, if not, I would wear flat shoes then if it makes him more comfortable.
