    i would say 5’8″ or shorter. i am 5’7″ though and i find tall guys more attractive (FI is 6’1″).

    I’m all messed up on what’s “short” and what’s not, since I’ve only ever dated men over 6 feet tall (except one, who was actually 5’5!) My husband is 6’3 and I’m so used to looking @ him that my tall vision is like, warped, haha. So I wanna say men under 6′ look short to me, but really it’s probably guys under 6’2 just because I’m used to living with a giant.

    I know DH is short, but he is 5’5″ and I am 5’2″ so it really doesn’t make a difference to me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Under 5’8 is short in my books. My husband is 6’3 and sometimes I wish he was even taller!

    Even though I am only 5’8″, I voted <6′ as short. I like to be able to wear heels and still be shorter. My SO is at least 6’3″. I have dated men the same height as me and shorter than me and it felt uncomfortable.

    I’d say anything under around 5’9 is ‘short’ for me, because I’m 5’11.

    I remember the first time I met my Fiance I thought he was short, but after we started sating I forgot and don’t notice at all. He’s just a little taller than me- excellent kissing height and good for photos! I think he’s around 5’6 or pushing 5’7

    Didn’t answer the poll. Growing up and many years into adulthood I thought any man not 6′ wasn’t really a grown up man.  But then I came from a large extended Scandinavian family where no man older than 15 was under 6′.  For the record there wasn’t a single blood related blonde (man or woman) and only one blonde who married in (I don’t know her ethnic background). There goes that stereotype!  I’d dated a few “shorter men” but not for long, and not because they were short.  Then I ended up with DH who’s only a couple inches taller than my 5’5″… so ya, I have no opinion. ๐Ÿ™‚  One of my best old friends said “he’s short.” upon meeting him, I said “ya, I know, life’s strange.”  I mostly dated guys I could climb, but married one not much bigger than I.

    ETA: I work with a man who’s probably 4.5 feet… he can’t reach the upper cabinets in the break room or copy room… he’s short… but he’s cool, he looks like a D&D dwarf and I imagine him carrying an axe or hammer lol.

    Honestly to me under 6’0 is short.  I have dated shorter guys but I always just prefered taller ones.

    I think anything under 5’8″ is kind of short for a guy. I’m 5’1″, and once was with a guy who was 5’8″. It was fine, he was certainly taller than me, but he was also the same height as some of my women friends. . . my current SO is exactly 6′, which is just right for us. ๐Ÿ™‚
