Off topic but...I think some women are more hung up on a man's height than the other way around. I know some woman who won't date any man under 6'0'' and yeah these are usually the barely 5'0'' tall women :P

I'm 5'5" and height is not a deal breaker with me. If a woman is shorter than me, okay. If a woman is 6' tall(without heals) and even taller with heals, I will be perfectly fine with that. My concern is if that woman that I might like will have the hang up over height. I think being short my whole life has kind of made me not worry about the height of a woman so much. Majority of elementary school and throughout middle school(until the last month of middle school), I was the shortest kid in the class. There were at least a few girls in the class who were a head taller than me.

4'10" is short for an adult woman, but usually not the result of any "dwarfism" condition, per se. Many clothing size and weight tables start at 4'10". I also think 4'10" would be a great height for a GF, but other qualities (e.g. character and affection) are far more important than height.

Most adult women with achondroplasia (the most common form of dwarfism) stand between about 3'6" and 3'10".

I think really tall women can be very attractive, but when I get near them I feel like a little kid, which makes me feel funny. Overall, I prefer petite women, like 5'0" to 5'3". I just like short, cute women more than tall, sexy ones.

I'd love to date a girl under 5 feet tall. Throw her around in bed. Carry her here and there in a field of grass. Hold her in my arms.

I'm so tired of being alone.

I'm 5'9", my wife is 6'2". Height is not a huge issue for me. Sometimes it's a bit amusing, the first time I saw her in high heels I did a double take.

The only issue is that our kitchen has some stuff on high shelves that I can't reach. Otherwise, there have been no issues that can't be solved by standing on tip-toes.

I picked 5'-6' as I am only 5'7 and my preference is for someone between 5'4-5'7. These are only preferences, not written in stone... other factors in someone may make me decide that the height is not an important factor.

Explain if you picked some other range?



For me, if I'm attracted to someone I don't think that height would keep me from dating her?
I dated a girl who was 4'11". She was cool and all, but I felt she was a bit short for me as I am 6'1". The tallest woman I dated was 5'8", and it was awesome. Most of my GFs were in the 5'2" to 5'3" range. As far as a deal breaker goes, I don't think I would ever date anyone under 5' again. I'd prefer a woman who is 5'11" to 6'1", but haven't met any yet that have been interested in me.

It would just be nice to not have to bend wayyy over to kiss a girl, not that I don't mind, but just that it would be nice not to have to. Or to dance with someone and be able to look them in the eye without getting a sore neck. Also, chances are, a girl closer to my height won't have a bed, blankets, couch, etc. that are too short for me. Those aren't deal breakers, but it would be a nice change....
