Men! Does height matter?

I am kinda thinking of this, because for me I somehow want my woman to be smaller than me in terms of height. Not because I think of male as more superior to woman, although subconsciously that might be the reason... What do you guys think?

well in general height does not really matter, but for me, i want my gf./wife to be shorter or at par with my height, i can consider taller women, but not that tall, maybe an inch. like wise i dont want very short women, i like it more in moderation not with exaggeration.

Actually, we do have the same preference haha... although I can still consider very short women, just not midget-size short.

I am petite that's why I prefer taller men. I like my children to be taller than I am. But it's not really an issue to me. If I like the person, height is not a problem. I'm just lucky that my wish was granted to me...I married a tall guy.

Well... somehow I do want to ask why you prefer taller man? If you know the answer that is, but yea I do agree that if somehow you really like someone, mostly things don't really matter.

Being tall and in a place were some people want to be tall as well, I find it odd to base your interest on some certain details like that. Height, complexion or anything of that sort. One time, a heard some passengers in the bus commenting on some female classmates that they keep on mentioning. "Her feet looks big" or "her hair is something like tangled wires" but, all I was wondering was if those that they are talking about are nice and friendly. A good personality often takes over superficial appearances. Your not going to value them for their foot size or their hair-do, right? Indeed, you might admit that you subconsciously want your partner to be a little lower than you but, that's your preference. I can't detest you for that. We are all individuals and we all have different opinions as well as interests. As a tall person like myself, if I would prefer some one with compatible height, lets say a few inches shorter from me, I'd really have a hard time finding someone since, even if I do find one, which is a rarity, I'd still try to know them a little and see if they have a very pleasing personality that even I could go by with.

Thanks for complimenting my response ^_^ I could even add that those that I find as good prospects tend to look at me more of a friend than that of what I want since my height does tend to coerce them into thinking that I am too tall for them. I don't mind though, its simply like that and I don't want to insist on anything to them. Again, thanks!

In my case, it matters really. Height is an important factor. I want my partner to be smaller that I am or have the same height with me. It's much important for guys to take care and guide the ladies. With the importance of height, you will surely guide them in a way that you can embrace them and see them whenever you want to without difficulties.

Agrees, haha... I felt that if they're too tall it seems like they're the ones who are guiding me

I think may be the height isn't important for women, but it does matter for men. It's fine even if a woman is short. But it seems it's a shame for a man if he is short. Even if he is a successful man, but the height problem is still upsetting him sometimes. If a man is not tall enough, it seems that he is not strong enough. It is just like a woman shall look better.

That was what I'm originally thinking... I kind of never seen a relationship before where the woman is taller than the man. A little inch won't hurt, but if she's really really tall - then I have never seen one before.

even if it sounds like a cliche, I think it is not body size that matters, it is personality size. A tall guy may attract attention of females maybe a bit easier at first, but once the conversation is going, you have a big chance of standing out through your style & personality.

Agree! I think it's just a bit unfair though that some guys have the upper hand. Haha..

Personally, I think it does. Its not about gender superiority or something but it has something to do with esteem. Tall women hate their height because its hard to find a match. For men, its opposite. They have better self esteem by having a good height.

I think esteem is the word that I want to say on my topic! I just can't get it to my head a while ago haha
