    SO and I are almost the exact same height – about 5’7″

    It doesn’t bother me at all..I don’t really have an “ideal” height preference, as long as the guy isn’t markedly shorter than I am. It does bother my SO though. He gets really self-conscious about the whole thing whenever I wear heels or anything like that, so I keep it to a minimum (which is fine for me, since I don’t like wearing heels very often anyway). I wish it didn’t bother him, but it does!

    @scqt13:  Wow, I thought for sure that I would have the tallest man but yours beat mine about an inch! Lol! My BF is 6’7 and I absolutely LOVE how tall he is. He’s brawny and has very nice shoulders. He makes me feel so safe πŸ™‚

    And I’m 5’5 so while I think I’m average height for a woman, I definitely feel tiny compared to him and I love it πŸ™‚

    He’s 6’2” I believe… perfect Height πŸ™‚ I’m 5’11” so he’s still my big strong man… but I’m tall enough that I can kiss him without getting a crook in my neck. lol Although he does like to tease me that i’m so short cus he knows how much I wish i was 6 ft. lol

    I’m 5’2″ and he is 5’10” .. the difference is perfect. I can wear my tallest heels and still be shorter than him. But in flats he doesn’t tower over me too much..

    @housebee:  +1  I was thinking the EXACT same thing!  The average height in the US for men is around 5″10, and in other industrialized countries it varies between 5’9-5’10.  These poll results seem super scewed.  I wonder if women dating unusually tall men are simply more likely to reply to this poll.  Or, if the guys are lying about their heights.  My dad insisted he was 5’10 for years (my mom is 5’11), but when my sister hit 5’9 and was taller than him, my dad had to admit he was only 5’8.  πŸ™‚

    For the record, I’m 5’6 and my SO is 6’2.  He is by far the tallest guy I dated.  All the previous guys were between 5’8 and 5’11.  πŸ™‚

    @lawyerchick13: +1.  The other thing I was thinking it could be is, men that are taller tend to not be single.  Of course this is all speculation, but it’s very interesting either way.

    @futuremrsbc:  Mine is 5’10 and I am 5’5, and I love it. I dated one guy who was 6′, but prefer shorter guys personally πŸ™‚

    He’s 6’5″ and I’m 5’3″. Means I get to wear heels when we go out and not be taller than him πŸ™‚
