  • I think anything under 6" is short for a man. Although I have always known tall men. I just answered a question like this. A man's height would not be a deal breaker, Yet, I prefer a tall man. My husband is 6"4". Which I don't see as overly tall since I am 5'9".

  • I did not care about height, although all the men in my life, except for one, were taller than me.
    My husband, the one exception, is 2 inches shorter than I am and I have no problem with it.
    I didn't fall in love with his height, I fell in love with all of him, just as he did with me.
    Thank goodness he didn't set limits on dating women with no children, a previous marriage, a little overweight, and a lot independent. We never would have fallen in love if he never gave me a chance based on those negative characteristics.
