You're 6'6". Even a guy that's 6'2" is going to look short next to you. That's like me standing next to someone that's 5'9".

Yeah, it makes sense. I am more attracted to taller women than I am to shorter women, everything else being the same. But if there is a shorter woman that I am attracted to, I'd be more than willing to date her.

In other words, height isn't a deal breaker for me. No way, no how. But there are heights that I tend to be more attracted to than others ...

Like ... I'm more attracted to Jennifer Garner than I am to Rachel Bilson, partly because she's taller ... But I'd gladly go out with either one of them if given the chance.

Make sense ?

Oh, duh! I skipped the word "than"-changed the whole meaning lol. Now it makes sense.

I've always laughed at the short girls and rather tall guys. It always looks silly to me. Each to his or her own though.

Oh yeah?

How's the weather up there TV?

I have no requirement for height, just that they like men, and by men I mean just me.

Yeah, can't get how shorter guys somehow can scoop women up from under me, then other women swear they want a guy taller than me.

I've always had a theory that there's a *cough* reason why some big guys need such tiny women [if ya know what I mean]. And yes, size matters - no tiny guys for me thank you - 6' and over with no past history with tiny women.

Height means nothing to me. I'm a guy that's 5'8" but I could be just as happy with a girl who's as tall as 6'6" or as short as 4'9"

I've noticed that the short girls tend to be the most to obsessed with the tall (and I mean tall) guys.

Yeah, but some of these the guys obviously agree to date those tiny women. Like I said, they must be glad to date someone so tiny, *cough* for a reason and/or they're into the "freak factor". Why can't people just get together with "height appropriate" partners? - sheesh - lol.
