    My husband is just about the same height as me. It was a little weird to me at first, but I decided it was a stupid this to be hung up on, and I got over it. I actually kind of like wearing tall heels around him, it makes me feel like a supermodel 🙂

    I think it’s not how tall he is, but how tall he is in relation to you that matters?  I am 5 foot nothing and my Darling Husband is 5’8 and that’s pretty perfect.

    He’s 6 feet and I’m 5’4″ so he’s just right for me. I’ve always liked tall guys, but not too tall.

    I am 5’3″, husband is 6’3″ and I am a fan. My ex was 6’4″ and while I do prefer taller gentlemen if you’re cute, you’re cute so I have no qualms about dating a guy my height.

    My husband is 6’1″ and I’m 5’4″. I love that he’s taller. I have dated a few shorter men (I think the shortest was 5’7″), and to me it felt odd, but that was based on my own ridiculous hang ups.

    I will say, as much as I think being tall is attractive, if your SO is several inches taller than you it makes it very difficult to impossible to get busy standing up or in the shower. So that’s a downside!

    I used to think like this…my ex husband was 6’7″. My current boyfriend is like 5’7 or 5’8″ (somewhere around there)…I don’t have an issue because his character is bar none. For me to fret over height at this point would be ridiculous.

    I’m only 5’2 so every guy I ever dated was taller. The tallest man I dated was 6’5 . The shortest was 5’7. My fiancé is 5’8 and we fit together perfectly! Honestly I have absolute no real preference as far as height is concerned .

    It also makes a difference in how secure a guy is about his height. Some men have a complex over it and that can get irritating.

    mine is 6’4. I think that’s the optimum height in my opinion. I have tendency to not notice short men. I think the fact that the shortest man in my family is 6’2 so I’m used to being around taller men.

    He is around 5’10” with me at 5’3″ so he is still quite a bit taller than me even when I wear heels. He also has broad shoulders whereas I have a smaller build and I find that very attractive. Generally even though I am short I like guys who are above average height. The tallest guy I ever dated was 6’3″.
