Too bad this isn't a multiple choice poll. 5'9" to 6'4" are all good heights IMO.

height ranges would probably be better. I doubt many people have an exact height they like. My preferred would probably be anywhere within 5'8" to 6'2".

Most chicks I know give this answer when asked their height requirement for a dude. This thread, however, is asking what height is ideal.

I'm not knocking your answer, just wondering if you had the clarification between "ideal" and "required" in mind when you gave it. There are plenty of women out there who would give an average "Joe Schmoe" a chance, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't prefer a good-looking guy who is built like Sylvester Stallone.

Do you really mean to say that a 5'3" guy is just as ideal to you as a guy closer to 6 feet?

Well, ideally, I'd be 6 feet. But I'm 5'10"...sometimes I feel tall, sometimes I feel short.

I didn't vote as I don't really know what is ideal...I'm 5'7" so taller than myself...

My b/f is 6'2" and I like that but I don't really know what ideal is for a guy.......just guessing I would say 6' due to my b/f is taller then most guys so going by that 6'..

I'm 5'10 also, and the reason you feel that way is because 5'10 is exactly average for an American male. We are taller than just about as many dudes as we are shorter than.

Also, no offense man, but that status is weak. If you are a "90s Man," you are way too young to be that weak in the knees over a woman. You should be out playing the field and chasing them all. Man up!

I'm 5'8 and I would love to be 6'0 to 6'4 (mostly to compliment my three point shooting). Unless I'm still as coordinated as I am now, I wouldn't want to be over 6'5 as that just seems like a hassle.
