    I apologize for my blunt response to the last poll but I would like a response to this poll. If you answer yes, you may write under what circumstance you would date a shorter guy. If not, list why not?

    I've gone with 'no' - I can't actually remember the last time I met a guy shorter than myself. It must have happened a few times but I really don't ever remember, as an adult, being taller than a man. I'm 5' tall.

    Really - the real answer is I don't know, but that isn't a poll option. I can't see a reason why there could not be a guy of 4'11, or less, out there who would be attractive to me - but he would also have to be attracted to me. The odds just seem fairly heavily against. :dunno:

    I have little choice but to date shorter men because I am taller than most men.

    I think the women who respond should also state how tall they are to add a frame of reference to their statements. FWIW, I'm 5'9" now.

    When I graduated 8th grade I was 5'7" and out of a graduating class of 100 there were only 5 boys and one girl taller than me. We don't keep in touch but I still remember all their names. :tongue::rolleyes:

    I voted, no. Not because I think men who are my height or shorter than myself are unattractive, but because I was always tall for my age and very self conscious about it. For years I wouldn't wear heels for fear of looking like some freakish, lanky Amazon. :redface: My not wanting to date someone shorter than me is about me and not him.

    Yes, absolutely. I'm just under 6' and usually date men barely my height or shorter. Ime, the height issue is usually the guys problem, not mine. :rolleyes: Some will actually argue that I am over 6' because they're holding onto being "5'10" or taller and are really 5'8-10".

    +1 for being one of the taller, if not tallest, girl in class - heck, life. :rolleyes:
    But I like shorter men. I'm not seeking a shorter man, but if 5'8" or better, I date them without issue.

    C'mon, NJ. Give the little guy a chance. :tongue:

    To the OP, cute pics!
    If I ever spot you on the N, A, 4, or 2, I'll pretend like I don't see you.
    :tongue: :wink:
    I have an inch on you in boots, short stuff... and I'm very into taking virginity these days. :biggrin1:

    Been there done that. My most recent fuckbuddy claimed to be 5'10" but when standing almost nose to nose he was closer to 5'8" if not 5'7". He was a fantastic lover, but I'm kinda glad we never actually dated.

    Sorry, I wouldn't date a guy shorter than myself. I have dated guys the same height or one or two inches taller. (I'm 5'6")

    But if it feels like I'm hugging one of my kids, I get creeped out. No chemistry.

    Women care less about height and more about a man not having a complex about his height.

    Yeah, if you're a guy under 5' tall... well, sorry man, but you got the short end of the stick. :tongue:

    Still, a shorter guy with a complex about it is going to be infinitely less attractive to a woman than a shorter guy brimming with confidence. :biggrin1:

    Hmm, maybe some women will date men shorter than themselves, but very few will marry one. There was a show about short men a month or so ago on TV, and about how short men are basically one of the only group of people still discriminated against in today's society that has made no progress at all.

    Anyway, back to the point. They did a study of 800 married couples and in only one instance was the man shorter than the woman. Take what you want from that :p

    I'm 5'9", my hubby is 5'8". Doesn't bother either of us, and he's secure enough he doesn't even mind me wearing heels. I dated a guy in college who was shorter than me, he hated it, wouldn't let me wear heels.
