Height in Dating?

I had a question regarding this earlier for my friend, who I though was being unreasonable.
Fellow guys, would you date someone taller than you?
Girls, would you date a guy shorter than you?

I wonder how the dynamics worked both ways. I always thought that height difference only mattered for girls, not guys.

    I wouldn't date a guy shorter than me because I'm barely 5'2". That's just way too short...no offense to guys of that height, just not my preference :)

    I'm 16 and 5'9, so I'm taller than most girls, and by the time I'm done growing I should be 5'11 or 6'. I don't think I would ask out a girl who was taller than me unless it was a special situation, like I already new her, and was in love with her or something like that.

    I'm 5'3" and my girlfriend's 5'5", so I don't think it really matters... If you have feelings for someone, a few inches -- or lack thereof -- shouldn't matter.

    I'm 5'10" and I really don't mind dating girls that are taller/shorter than me...

    I'm 5'8 and I wouldn't date a guy shorter, it kind of makes guys seem unattractive to me

    Is 5'9 short for a guy?
  • golfcrewxctrackgolfcrewxctrack Posts: 602Registered User Junior Member

    Sorry.. But no.

    For one, I'm short. So no one can be shorter than me.
    Two, I rarely date now.. I had a bad experince and now I'm scared of dating in general

    Saugus: 5'9" is juuuust under average adult male height in the U.S (at least in most studies).

    It's funny, because if you look at some of the men we'd call hyper-masculine, they date women taller than themselves (Tom Cruise, Mick Jagger).
    Golf, 5'9 is about average. Not short.
    I'm 5'11, and I don't really care about height. However, I'd probably not date a midget :o.

    eh 5'9 is short in my opinion, I wouldn't date a guy who was only 5'9

    ^Agreed.
    ^^Then what would you consider a good height, golf?
  • golfcrewxctrackgolfcrewxctrack Posts: 602Registered User Junior Member
    6 feet and taller

    It might not really matter for guys too much, but guys might just have an easier time asking out shorter girls (more confidence).
