I am 6 foot even, and the girls I am always attracted to are either really short (ex girlfriend/girl of my dreams/never had my heart more broken was 5’2) or really tall (I couldn’t tell ya a size cuz we never dated, but probably 6’4 or so)
I am 6’1" and I would not trade my height for $1,000,000. It has so many advantages both in the social and corporate world that it is ridiculous. However, I would want not want to go beyond 6’3". You start to run into logistical problems past that.
For females, I don’t think it matters much. I think my limits would be 5 feet even to 5’11". I don’t think think I could go for a woman taller or shorter than that. My wife is 5’5" and that seems ideal for me.
I’m a 5’6" man. My preference is for women 5’2 to my height, and 5’9" and up, with a strong preference for the latter. The in-between I figure just makes me look short. Sure, I look short dating a 5’11" woman, but it’s a huge ego-stroke. I’ve been told by many that, when dating one of the Amazons, they often hear from others something like, “he’s so much shorter than her…he must be amazing in bed!”
That is a damned good question. It would mainly depend on skin tone and getting the good qualities that are associated with being black like dance skills, music, great dress, and being a player. I grew up in a small town that was about 50% black and many of the black guys could do just about anything. If I could have somewhat lighter skin and equivalent looks plus my brains, I think I would for that option seriously. I was practically raised by a black nanny and her family though.
I have two brothers and two stepbrothers. Four of us are over six feet tall and married. The shorter one isn’t and my mother is convinced it is because he is 5’7".
I’m just shy of 5’4" and I strongly prefer guys 5’8" to 6’ to guys any taller than that. It might be because my dad’s tall (6’2") but I don’t like guys to tower over me - I don’t like feeling that little.
I don’t know if I’ve begun my old-age shrinking yet, but I maxed out at 5’5" - as I looked back at photos of former boyfriends and included my husband, I found they mainly tended to be 5’9" or 5’10" and non-skinny. I did date a few quite tall guys, up to 6’8" I think, but I always felt like a child next to the really tall ones. Even the guy who was only 5’15" (as he put it) was difficult to dance with, much as I liked him. I also dated a couple who were within an inch or so of my height - I was fine with them.
Still, it seems I’m most comfortable with men only 4 or 5 inches taller.
I’m a bit short (5’2’’) and definitely have a preference for shorter guys. Tall guys can be sexy, but they aren’t very practical. I like to be able to stand in front of someone and look into his eyes without hurting my neck. I like to be able to dance with my face against his. My husband is 5’6’’, short by most standards, but still 4’’ taller than me!
I’m 5’7, Nashiitashii is 5’9-5’10 depending on her posture. We are getting married this year. It works out fine for us, that’s just more leg to tuck over my shoulders after all. I don’t mind being shorter than her, I don’t define my masculinity by height.
I’m 5’ 1". I prefer them to at least as tall or taller than me with heels (that would be all of 5’ 3" and up). You’d think it would be hard to find guys shorter than that, right? Yet I’ve danced and been friends with those short guys.
My last FWB was 6’ and slender. Height doesn’t matter when one is cuddling with someone else.
I admit that I have height issues when it comes to dating women. I’m 5’8 and I simply can’t date a woman who is taller than me even if she is pretty and fun, Just can’t do it. The max height for me is 5’6 allowing for the 2" inch pumps.
I’m 6’2" and have dated guys as short as 5’3". I have a lot of random preferences but height isn’t really one of them. Well, at least where short guys are concerned. I might pause before dating a little guy. Height concerns disappear when we’re horizontal anyway.
Only problem I had with the 5’3" guy is that he loved to dirty dance with me at the nightclubs. Which involves hip grinding. Which involves me bending low enough for our hips to be at equal height. And then bending even lower because his dancing involved him bending his knees. So that put a lot of strain on my knees.
I dated two guys who were taller than me. It was kind of cool, if just for the novelty of kissing up.
