My husband of twenty-six years is two inches taller than me.  He's a really great guy . . . but I know that if he had been an inch shorter than me, I would have had trouble looking past that. I'm not sure I would have even dated him.

Shallow?  Yes, I admit it.

Would you get into a relationship with a man who is shorter than you?

I have dated shorter guys and it was just awkward feeling. They were great guys and we didn't break up because they were shorter(not even that short just shorter then me). Perhaps it would have gotten less awkward who knows, my husband is over 6 ft tall.

I have nothing against shorter guys - but I am just really not attracted to them.

DH is not much taller than me.  !hile many aspects of a relationship are important - not just physical attraction - attraction is still a must on some level!

Well, no. I am 5'3" (5'3 1/2" on a good day) and I was always attracted to men taller than I am. My husband is 5'10" (he is the shortest). Back in the good ol' days of junior high (when it stopped at the ninth grade), my boyfriend played on the basketball team and was 6'4" (he was the tallest).

Unless he's a midget, I'd have a hard time finding a guy shorter than me,lol.

The shortest guy I've ever dated was 4 inches taller than me. The tallest guy was 16 inches taller. we made an odd couple... Dh is 11 inches taller, although it doesn't feel like that big of a difference. Maybe because I have a big personality ;-)

*I'm 5'0 btw*

I don't think I would because I like big guys...I have a big mouth so I need someone who looks like they can take care of me.

Initially I wouldn't be attracted to a guy shorter than me but who knows after I got to know him.

I'm only 5'1. My husband is 5'10.
