Which is not a big deal, really. When I was younger I hated my height. Wanted to be taller. I don’t know too many American women who didn’t hate the way they looked as teenagers, unless they were 5’7″ and stick thin. But now that I’m older I’ve grown into my looks and think I’m perfectly fine the way I am.
Anyway, one issue I never have is whether or not to date men who are shorter than me. It’s true, there are men who are shorter than me in the world. But I’ve never had any of them express interest in dating me. I do, frequently, get hit on by men who would be considered short and that’s cool with me. I hear that other women, taller women, sometimes have issues with short guys. That some women don’t like goiing out with men who are shorter than them, but I don’t get it. But then, I guess it’s all a matter of taste.
A guy’s height does matter to me, though. I can’t deal with guys who are too tall. Compared to me. A guy who’s a foot taller – OK fine. 13inches, sure. But more than that, um no. Then things start to get icky. My personal preference, btw, is for a guy to be about 5-8 inches taller than me. No more than that.
And the really funny thing is that there are some really tall guys who have a thing for superpetite women. I’ve had a couple of guys in the 6’7″ range hit on me. I don’t get it. But then, I know some women my height who like tall guys. I don’t judge.
What about you? Does a person’s height matter to you? Are you a woman who won’t date shorter men? A guy who likes tall chicks? A guy who likes petite chicks? Someone who doesn’t think about this stuff at all? Does a person’s height matter to you?
