  • I always fell in love with shorter men and then they began to suffer from "short shit syndrome" (they feel like they have to act even more macho because they are shorter then you). I then went on to marry the tallest assh%^ on earth! So men are men regardless of height.

  • I don't really think anything of it. I don't date men shorter than me, but I'm only 5' 3", so it's not that hard to find someone taller than me. My current guy is 6' even. I love a tall man.

  • I am 5'2" so there are not a lot of guys shorter than I am. I dated 2 that were like 5'5" but I married one that is 6'5". I think that if a man is with a taller woman it shows that he is a confidant man and knows how to handle peer pressure

  • Funny you ask this. I had this same conversation with friends not to long ago. I'm just 5 feet Dh is 6'2. I think when the man is shorter signifiacantly shorter it looks weird. I always feel like he is the weaker one. I know that sounds dumb but I have a friend who is the exact opposite of me and DH she is 6'2 and he is 5'2 UGH. I have a hard time taking to him seriously. (maybe it's just him he is quite annoying) I just alwways feel more secure with a bigger, taller man.
