Should Taller Women Date Shorter Guys?

Ladies, have you ever dated a shorter guy? Guys, have you ever dated taller? If you haven't, our friends at How About We have come up with 7 reasons why you should. Here are four of our favorites.



1. "Handsome doesn’t have a height requirement. Seriously, a good face and hot body looks just as good at 5'7" as it does at 6'3," they claim. This is true ... but you also have to look down to see him.

2. "Maybe you’re not a supermodel, but you’ll certainly get to feel like one when you go out with him in heels," they argue. Who wouldn't want to feel like Katie Holmes standing next to Tom Cruise once in a while?

3. "A short guy willing to go out with a girl who’s taller than he is is confident and probably ok with his girlfriend upstaging him. He’s not too hung up on appearance or machismo. This is a good quality to have in a boyfriend." Agreed.

4. "Uhm, you say Napoleon Complex like it’s a bad thing? Guys with Napoleon complexes are ambitious, capable and driven: they also have learned how to command respect through means other than appearance, all admirable traits." This appears to be true ... some of the shortest guys we've known have been the hardest working.

The truth is, a few inches really shouldn't make a difference, and can even look kind of sexy. And ladies, have you really met so many great guys that you're willing to overlook (pun intended) shorter studs?

    Personally, I don't date anyone shorter than myself, unless it's a female. I like looking up at a guy, not down. But that's just me.

    The only reason I answered ''no'' is because I would personally feel odd dating someone shorter since I'm 5'11''. However, doesn't mean other women aren't entitled to date guys shorter than them. Coincidentally, the few guys I've liked were about my height or taller anyway.

    I know it looks weird but the best men are not the tall ones --- It is in their heart! A heart has no height!

    ''The best men are not the tall ones''. That doesn't necessarily mean the short ones are either.

    But I do agree with the rest of your statement.

    Oh! honey - don't delete the short men. We can call are men short but love has no height!
    The love of my live was only 5 foot 3! I think about him every day of the week and it was over 40 years ago! Don't let that happen to you..

    I wasn't ''deleting'' the short ones but saying that ''the best men are not the tall ones'' is not entirely true. It just so happens that most of the guys with whom I associate are about my height or taller. I think the shortest male friend I have is like 5'8''. lol

    Don't slight yourself! Your avatar is very close to me - relative - not a lover The tall blonde men are a mess - including your avatar. Love the short, smart men that have so much to offer.

    ''The tall blonde men are a mess''? I highly doubt that's true. My avatar is a picture of Robert Plant who, when last I checked, was one of the most successful rockers in music history. I don't know him personally but he seems like a nice person from interviews I've seen of him. Of course, opinions vary.

    ''Love the short, smart men that have so much to offer''. Right now, you make it sound as if tall men are dumb. When last I checked, intelligence has no height either. Most of the short guys I know are younger than I am and dating younger is a definite no-no for me, considering my age.

    It doesn't matter to me, anyway. I am 5'5", so most guys are taller than me. But height isn't a big priority to me.

    Women and men should date partners who suit them; have the right personalities, interests, goals. How is height even on the list of 'requirements'? The same goes for men who are intimidated by tall women. If height affects your relationship- why are you even in one in the first place? There are those of us who are concerned with more important details.

    I wouldn't date a guy shorter than me... or even same height actually. I'm 5'3, I'm sure you understand.

    It's your choice. And I mean that sincerely and honestly. You should get to choose who and what you date. Sadly, I'mma tiny little feller at about 5' 6.5" (I'm very proud of my half inch.)
  • Rhi-ot. Christo... 2012/03/30 01:54:34

    5' 6.5 isn't that short! I'm talking like the 5'0-5'5 category:P

    Which is totally fair. Let no one tell you otherwise.

    On topic: It was, at one point, scientifically proven that most ladies prefer to be cuddled, and a taller mate (male or female) can do that. It's biology.
  • Rhi-ot. Christo... 2012/04/13 01:53:32

    Well that's actually what I take into account when I think about someone I wanna be with especially at this age. If I feel like their height will make me self conscious because I feel larger and like I'm going to break them if I jump into their arms, it's just not gonna happen...

    How about "who cares?" There's a (double) problem though: most women DON'T WANT to date shorter guys... and guess what? There are also enough guys who DON'T WANT to date taller women (it might seem strange to some, but some guys feel "inferior" if the woman is taller)

    Yeap. Personally, I admit to being intimidated by taller women.

    That's what I think as well. How does height matter? It's just as odd as men not being interested in tall women.

    Size ALWAYS matters, even if it's psychological. After all, you base your cellphone purchases on size, you base your house purchases on size. Cars, same thing.

    And size isn't always about being bigger (unless you're Texan XD) but size does matter in everything you do. From relationships to household purchases and everything in between and outside.
