  • I don't ever want to be taller. A few of my serious relationships we're with guys who were 5'9" and, I'm 5'7". So, I never wore heels with them. Not, that I enjoy wearing them that much though. I always joked that I could wear whatever shoes I wanted with my ex husband, he's 6'4". It was also nice that he always weighed more than me, due to his size, even when I was 9 months pregnant. LOL, those were the only good things about him.

  • I prefer the guy to be taller. I feel too much like an Amazon if he's shorter than me. I realize this is my own insecurity issue, but I can live with it.

  • I will always be shorter. I'm only 5'2 and every guy Ive been with has always been taller by 6 inches or more. I like being short

  • I noticed short guys have a thing for taller women I do not like them at all, just feels off. I like being tall because in business stupid males will not be able to pat you on the head . Other than that I'm OK Also I have a strong hand shake, The response is Wow!!!

  • I prefer taller. 6-8 inches taller is my ideal, but DH is only 2 or 3 inches taller than me. In the end, I guess it doesn't really matter. LOL.

  • taller. im 5'8 so i dated a couple of guy shorter than was awful! they were very controlling guys, i think they were threatened by me being taller than them haha. the tallest i dated was 6'9 and he was too tall haha. so DH is just right at 6'0.

  • I'm all of 5 ft tall... i would have to date a midget to date a shorter guy, (and I have never met one). My SO is 6ft tall and it's nice cause I can wear the bigger heels and it's cute, but if I wear flats, i look and feel like I'm a kid. lol!

    I work in a male domintaed business (logistics sales and trucking), and it's taken a while for the higher ups to take me seriosuly being a "small statured" woman. A firm handshake and a "take no bullshit" attitude will make you seem 10ft tall in my business.

  • VanessaMomof2 I agree with the hand shake thing , I'm in IT and shook one guys hand till it hurt got his attention. Nothing worst than a limp handshake .
