I've gone down to around the same height. Which was fine.

A significant amount shorter than me (5'6") and it would just be weird, I think. But height doesn't bug me unless he's at the height where if I hug him, my nose goes straight into his armpit. I seem to smoosh my face into a guy's armpit in the middle of the night and wake up with a nose full of pit anyway, so to have that happen while I'm awake, I'll pass.

Unless someone invents like, a pit bubble or something.

I am just about 5'11" so I can't be too picky. I have dated guys a couple of inches shorter then me and I probably will again.

I've dated someone about my same height, but most of the time they are always taller...I'm pretty short, so it's not really a preference, just happens.

I'm only 5'2", but I prefer taller guys... like 5'11" and up. I've dated guys who about the same height but wearing heels around them made me feel awkward when it came to hugging. So tall for me is a preference, not a requirement.

Height really doesn't matter.

I've dated girls at up to 6' and just under 5'. *shrug* There's more to a person than physical traits.

She cant be taller than me, and that includes in her heels. so she gotta be about 5-4 or below. I have done it the other way, dated a girl 5-9, she puts on heels and pops over 6 foot, um yeah, its just awkward. They tell you oh height is just a number... yadda yadda yadda, First time she meets my friend that is 6-8; we're done. (and he wonders why he never meets any of the girls I date since highschool) duh.

I've never seen it work out long term when the woman is taller than the man... anyone know of any?

I'm 6'-0 and my wife is 5'-2", so she can lay her head on my my shoulder even when standing by each other... nice feature, I'd recommend it.

Caveat, apparently Ukranian women dont care about dating a shorter guy. They have had it with their local guys that are 6-0+ that think they are gods gift to women (cuz every girl chases after them) I have more 5-9;5-10 women after me than I know what to do with!

Time will tell, travelling in the spring.

Well.. I would have told you that I'd never date a guy that's shorter than me.. but alas... I'm dating one now.. Who knew?? Still kind of strange when I want to wear heels. And hugging isn't quite the same - there's no burying my face into his chest.. but it's a small price to pay for happiness I 'spose.

Hmm, I agree that those "vertically challenged" gals are cuties... but I have to disagree with the taller goofies. Here's the scenario... We went to State (basketball) when I was in High School and the State tourney was in the MSU Fieldhouse in Bozeman, MT. We were supposed to use the women's lockerroom (lots of teams there) and we had to wait outside before going in. As we were waiting, the MSU women's volleyball team comes out in their uniforms and they were all very tall... you can imagine a bunch of HS boy's jaws dropping as they walked by. It was one of the most amazing spectacles a boy in HS can imagine. AWESOME! I was COMPLETELY distracted and lost any game face/focus I might have had. I would have dated any of those "goofy" gals!

(tallest gal I ever dated was 5'-9")
