This sounds shallow, because it is, but I have been known to say I wouldn’t date a “short” guy (to me, 5′ 9″ or under. 5′ 10″ & 5′ 11″ are ok. 6’+ is perfect).
I have also said if a guy is short, he would have to be absolutely amazing. Well, I’m dating a guy who is 5′ 7″. I almost wrote him off the second I met him because of his height. He is so sweet, snuggly, genuine, funny, intelligent and has the most beautiful grayish blue eyes with huge black eyelashes. His height is not ideal but I’m getting past it.
How tall is your guy? Is he shorter than you’d like? Has anyone else overcome a hangup over height or any other superficial trait?

Way taller than me, 16 inches in fact. Too tall for me honestly.

DH is about 5’9″. I think he’s perfect. I’m 5’3″ and I feel like we fit together nicely. I’ve dated tall guys and it always felt a little awkward being a foot shorter. I’ve always preferred the “shorter” guys. Though I will say that if a guy was shorter than me it might be weird too, but I don’t meet too many guys that are shorter than me.

I’m 5’8″ and he’s 5’10”. I don’t really care how tall he is lol. I still wear 6″ heels with him and neither of us care.

I’m 5’6, my fiance is 5’8. I had a hard time with it at the start, but I’m getting used to it. There are lots of benefits of being close in height! Kissing while standing being one of them. No straining my neck! 🙂

DH is just shy of 6′ but I’m 5’8” so it would be nice if he was a little taller than me in heels. I don’t ever really think about it though.

I’m 5’6″ and he’s 6’0 so it works perfectly! I’ve dated all heights though too tall was 6’8″

6’8″. He’s a little over a foot taller than me and it’s perfect! His height was def one of the reasons I was first attracted to him. I’m a bit heel wearer so it’s nice to rock my 4″ heels and still feel small next to him

my SO is a foot taller than me (he’s very tall) but I’ve also dated someone very seriously who was only an inch taller than me (very short for a guy). I guess it doesn’t matter to me that much but the height is nice from a usefulness standpoint

Husband is 6’7. Like 95% of the men I dated were over 6ft. I’m only 5’6 but I’m bigger and a hang up for me so I didn’t meet many shorter dudes that I liked. In all honest anything over 6’4 is harder. I wish he was a bit shorter so it wasn’t such a fight with clothes. And if he could stop putting things so high up that’d be great.

I am 5’6″ and he is 5’11”. Nice difference but I don’t like wearing really tall heels with him, I don’t like to be the same height or almost. I always preferred over 6 foot but what’s a few inches?

I’m 5’0, and he’s 6’0, so there’s exactly a foot between us. I love it because I can wear any heel I want and still feel small next to him, and his arm span is perfect for hugs!

heʻs 5ʻ5ish and Iʻm 5ʻ0 in flipflops. I absolutely adore shorter guys, Fiance is perfection to me in the looks/height department. Short dudes are definitely my thing. Yaʻll can have the tall guys, instant turn off to me. Donʻt tower over me and intimidate me, I will headbutt you in the kneecaps.

He’s 5’9″ and I’m 5’5″. If I was being perfectly honest, I wouldn’t mind if he was a couple inches taller, but it’s not an actual problem. When I was a little shorter (in high school, I was a late bloomer) I dated a guy who was 6’3″ which was probably a little too tall because it was actually kind of difficult to hold hands! The guys I sort of dated in college (oh college…) were 5’11” and 6′.
