#1 is the most important. If you have it then it doesn't matter if you have #2 or #3. However, if you have all three then you will have to beat women off with a stick.
Awesome, I've got it made then!

I'm 5'11" barefoot & my last boyfriend was 5'7". My ex-husband was an inch shorter than me. I don't care about height at all. I still consider myself shallow - looks are important to me, but also I wanted guys who were smart, interesting, confident, funny. I weighed less than all the guys I've dated, that might make a difference...

My best friend is 5'10" married to a 5'5 guy - but we are in nor cal and they say people are less conventional here.

Sure they do! Not me, but those women are out there!

I was watching some show the other day and there was a jockey on there talking about his 6 foot girlfriend! It happens!

It is more how you are built I think? Some goofy 6'-4" dork that is skinny as a rail can't hold his own against a average height muscular guy. Look at Tim Sylvia. Tim Sylvia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia He is 6' 8" and Randy Couture Randy Couture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia who is 6' 1" whooped the crap out of the giant before.

I'm 5'10. Have been out with guys a little shorter or the same height. My SO is 6'3, but it's not like I saw him and thought "oh good, a stretchy at LAST", then made a beeline for him.
I got his phone number first.

My mother was also tall, and used to ballroom dance. One shorter guy she danced with thought it hilarious to gaze up at her and ask how the weather was up there. No, he didnt end up being my father.

I'm about 5'7 and prefer men to be taller, but I would date a fellow who was 5'6+. On the other end of the spectrum any man over 6'2 is too towering, but it is always possible a lovely giant might come along one day and sweep me off my feet. Literally.
