hi am a 6"1' university student and i am writing a magazine article for an assignment on tall women dating shorter men. I was hoping people would be able to give me their opinions- if you have ever dated a short man or what they think about the whole situation of dating men shorter.
If anyone could help me out i would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Personally I think that the guy should be taller. I'm 6"7 so I'm taller than almost all girls anyway. Plus when I wear my work boots I'm like 6"9. I guess it really just matters what makes the couple happy. Cuz it kind of doesmthe same thing with the age situation ive been having. Im 6 inches taller and I'm very mature form my age and I'm 19 and she's 23 and I think she has a problem with that. She kinda treats me like a kid. In sense it is funny though.
WHERE ARE THE TALL, SINGLE SENIORS? I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MEN LIE ABOUT THEIR HEIGHT THEN BLAME IT ON THE AGING PROCESS. I AM 5'11" AND LOOK 6'2" WITH HAIR AND SHOES AND THAT IS IF I WEAR FLATS. I HAVE NOT SHRUNK DUE TO AGING AND I AM GOING TO TURN 63. IF I HAVE TO BEND DOWN TO KISS A MAN GOODNIGHT, IT IS A TURN OFF.
Hi I'm 6'1 and most guys I have date were shorter. I always had this feeling that I would hurt them, as well as the hugs god it's like back bracking stuff having to bened my knees to do it. It's sort of hard lifting in a world where prince charming was always taller. And then there is the looks from others. I will say that at the end of the day only love matters I have seen a tall woman and short guy been married for about 30 years and they still really happy. So what it all is, is what's in people's minds hight don't matter it's the heart
I've never met a woman taller than me (6'8") but I wouldn't hold it against her! Though I must admit I do find it a little frustrating when I see a beautiful tall woman dating a shorter guy and then you get shorter women telling you that you are 'too tall'!
I'm 5'7" and prefer dating a woman who is taller than I am. I prefer women 5'9" or taller. One thing I notice on discussions about height differences is that women often state that with a taller man they feel more feminine and that with a shorter man they feel more masculine. I think this is odd. I've been going to the gym for 35 years and also studied martial arts for years. I don't need to be with a much shorter woman to feel strong or masculine. Being with a taller woman does not make me feel weaker or less masculine. I'm complete within myself and being with a taller or shorter woman doesn't change who I am. For those taller women who are holding out only for very tall men, try expanding your choices to include shorter men. Remember that there aren't enough tall men to go around because taller women are also competing with shorter women for those tall men! Do the math and expand your options. (By the way, though my preference is for taller women, I also date women who are shorter than me because height is only one factor.)
I'm a short man measuring 5' 7.3". And I'm interested to be dated by you Staceyalyce as I'm 5.7" shorter than you. And I really advice tall women to date men who are either shorter or at the same heights as them. I always feel that I want to make friendship with women or teenager girls who are taller than I am and I don't feel any embaracement when I walk in public with a woman or a girl who is taller than me. Although most men feel embaraced when they meet women who are taller than them, and the same thing is true for women when they meet men who are shorter than them
Oh how I wish I had joined this site before! I am 5'10 in bare feet and have always preferred men who are taller than me, and have always assumed men wouldn't want to date a woman taller than them. It is so refreshing to hear that isn't necessarily the case and reassuring to hear other tall women's confidence in their height, and particularly wearing heels too!
Watching a tall beautiful woman date a shorter man has always been frusterating for me being 5'19" and all. I guess you can't be too biased because guys can date down and I've dated down to 5'1", but I am much happier and prefer taller women. I've dated a couple of 5'11" and a 6 footer and like it soo much better. It feels more natural for me, and it still allows them to wear heels and still feel petite.
Dating someone shorter than I am is a problem. I do feel uncomfortable around them. I want to look up to someone when I talk to the person. It might sound shallow, but I just prefer a taller man. My dad told me that I could be missing out on a good thing. Well, if I can't feel comfortable with the one I am with then that would cause a problem.
