Ok, this is a counter to the "Is height really a dealbreaker with women? " thread.

For men: Is there a height that is a minimum or maximum that would keep you from dating someone?

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?

Not only is height NOT a dealbreaker, I can't even come up with a preferred height range that I have for women. I'm about 5'10, and I guess I prefer women to be at least a little bit shorter than me, but beyond that, I have no preference one way or the other between a 5'2 chick and a 5'8 chick.

How about a woman who was 4'8" or 6'8"?

I would definitely tag the 4'8". I will admit the 6'8" would be iffy, but chicks that tall are so rare they are almost nonexistent. Even in the WNBA there have only been five chicks 6'8" or taller.

Women who are signficantly taller than me are not the ones I would go for; I guess 5'10 is ok. I'm only 5'8 btw

You must be bored and have nothing to do. There is NEVER been a documented case of a womans height being a dealbreaker for a man. If the woman is hot, the man will go for it. We are not talking about dwarfs here either. If the woman is hot, and her body is tight, her height will not matter.

Candace Parker of the LA Sparks is like 6' 5" and Id definitely hit that - Candace Parker | guXed - Men's Online Celebrity Magazine

Heck, I once was out at a local brunch spot and saw a table of about 6 midget chicks. Four of them were HOT and one was cute. I told my wife who was with me at the time that I'd do the four hot ones. Mrs. Lao just laughed and commented about how good they looked.

My current girlfriend is 5 feet tall, if that. I'm 5'10''. A girl that I was messing around with earlier in the year is 6'1'' and she was the one who kept bringing up the issue about height. I didn't care at first, but when she kept bringing it up I basically told her maybe it's best if you look for someone who is as tall or taller than you. It felt like she was blaming me for being shorter than her. Men aren't conscious about their height unless its brought up IMO.

Dated a girl that was 4'11" for years and loved almost every minute of it. Much above 5'5" and I lose interest.
