For me, I would be a little uncomfortable with the guy being shorter than me but if I really like him, it wouldn't stop me. What about you? Does height matter in your relationship?

I don't think height is the measurement about love. As far as I know love is immeasurable and height doesn't matter at all...have a great day!

Yes, height shouldn't matter when it comes down to love between two people. You have a great day too.

I don't agree with you my friend. Height doesn't matter and height is not the measurement of love. If you say height is the matter of affection i agree with you. But if you say love does matter with height I think that is not proper... have a great day!

No, but i think it's kinda trend to most couples even before the 21st century. that the guy has to be taller than the woman. but there's a lot of women who is taller than the guys. but that's alright who ever is taller is not that important but as long as they love each other then it's ok.

I actually think it's not as important to couples before the 21st century. Sure, the couples then used social status and health to choose their marriage but they idn't mind whoever was shorter. Funny.....anyways thank you for responding

Yes, I know someone who was going around with a guy who is shorter than her. He is 1 inche shorter than her. He is also quite chubby which makes him look more short. This makes her a butt of many jokes but she is completely in love with him. He also loves her very much. This may be a unique situation but is not necessarily the best way to be. I personally feel that the guy must be taller or atleast the same height as the girl. My guy is an inch taller than me. I am plumpish so I look slightly shorter too, so it works for us. :)

As long as the couple is happy, then it's alright. Many cases the boyfriend is taller so some people might feel weird seeing a couple not like that and make fun of them but I'm glad that she choose to be with him anyways. Thank you for responding

Height doesn't matter. Weight doesn't matter. Looks does not matter. Wgat does matter is personality, how much we have in common, basically how good we get along together. And looks, height or weight can't determine that. If you're looking for someone just to date and haver a good time and not get serious at all, maybe you can be a little picky about those things. I can't help but wonder how marriages havre ended because of this. A beautiful woman turns out to be a real complainer, meanwhiile there was someone else, not so nice looking but wojuld have been wonderful to be married to. Or a man who is "hot" turn s out to be controlling, maybe evn abusive. Meanwhile, there was someone else who was "plain looking" but would have respected her and made her much happier. And I'm not saying all people who are real good looking are bad partners. I'm just saying looks have nothing to do with it.

I agree. Sometimes looks can be deceiving. I once thought a guy was nice because he of his looks but when he turned out to have an awful personality, I stopped thinking that way

I have always dated guys that were taller than me but it would be hard to find many that were shorter! I am only 5'2' so I am sure there are very few out there!! I have known several taller girls that dated guys that were the same height or a little shorted than them and it never did seem to bother them. If I was taller I am sure that I would be fine with it and it really wouldn't matter as long as they were a good person and I liked being with them. Some people seem to be to caught up in what people might say about things if they were someone and won't do anything that might make people talk!

I also have many friends who dated guys shorter than them. Sometimes people talk but if they are really comfortable with each other they won't care. Thanks for the response

for a relationship you don't need to look at the physical outlook of a person if you love that man you will accept the way he is.. but on my stand, i'm not comftable of having a shorter bf because i'm too short to have short bf. but if it is your desteny to have one y not love that man, who knows you would be better.

You're right that physical outlook doesn't matter but I used to not want to grow taller so whatever guy I fall in love with would be taller than me. Thanks for the response

I personally prefer the guy to be taller. I guess it comes from habit that if I go to kiss a guy I kiss upwards, but who knows? I have dated guys that are shorter than me and broke up with them for reasons that had nothing to do with height.

I prefer a taller guy too but comes down to their personality at the end of the day. Both tall and short guys can be jerks

So long as the couple love each other and care for each other, the question of height is not at all a problem. But for me, I wish my husband should be little taller than me coz in a pair, if the husband is little taller than his wife, that makes a perfect pair to look

It didn't stop me either, I married my short guy hehehe It's different but not really something that you would exchange for love. I am in love with the person and that means accepting who is he and how tall he is I never really looked at height as one of my requirements.
