Should A Man Be Taller Than His Girl? by didara86(f): 8:22pm On Feb 11, 2008
What do u think about this topic? Could you, as a man, cope with the fact that your girl is taller than yourself? and on the other hand, could u girls ever fall in love with a guy that has less height than you? Am just curious, also about the consequences for the relationship. Does there exist any consequences or doesn't it matter? Just wanna know your opinion

thanks

No can’t do . . . can’t date someone shorter than me. Weird too cos I wear only heels.
Re: Should A Man Be Taller Than His Girl? by didara86(f): 11:42pm On Feb 11, 2008
Hmmmm. That's honestly not what i wanted to hear! grin

i must confess i also never thought i could cope with a smaller guy---- up to now grin

It was a blind date, nah, i got to know him online and we finally met this weekend. He's daaaaaaaaaamn cute but i was kinda shocked when i saw him coming around the corner and had to realise that he was at least 5cm smaller than me (at least!). embarassed
Now i'm wondering if that should/could be a problem.
Am experiencing this the first time for all my life right now. Though i'm quite tall (1,77m) it never happenend that i dated someone smaller than myself.
Everyday a new experience.
Thanks for ur opinion smiley

It is nice but if he is wonderful in everything else then him being short should be fine.
Re: Should A Man Be Taller Than His Girl? by uspry1(f): 5:19am On Feb 12, 2008
My sister is taller than her boyfriend at least 2 inches or 1 foot difference.

I don't mind to date a guy who is only slight shorter than me!

Well, your sister's case is different. Unlike other women, your sister has no choice
but to settle for whatever man comes her way

@Texcee

You got all wrong. My sister mostly like to date shorter guys that i have noticed her in the past except one was her ex-husband was taller than her. All her ex-bfs were mostly shorter than my sister. angry

I prefer with guy that has same height or slight short guy as mine.

just has to settle for any man that comes her way.

Re: Should A Man Be Taller Than His Girl? by Nobody: 7:12am On Feb 12, 2008
I seriously believe a guy should be taller than his beau! I'm a tall guy myself and never dated a taller girl.
Even the tall ones end up being a bit shorter than me.
I like it that way! Height matters! cheesy

whooooooooooooooooo! i wasnt expecting this.
im wondering y uspry isnt fighting back. she'd normally come out with her claws.

well, i believe all girls would prefer taller guys but would settle with someone that ticks every other box
Re: Should A Man Be Taller Than His Girl? by opokonwa(m): 10:24am On Feb 12, 2008
Though it is a + for a man who is a bit taller than the babe.
It helps for the ego (of the man) and the showmanship from the girl. wink

It is certainly not a - for a man to be shorter.
Life and looks afterall is not about perfection.

Do you think the guy's self-confidence would suffer from the fact that his girl is taller?
I'm not really sure, cos as i said, i never experienced such a situation before.
He's a very nice guy and apart from his height he seems to be perfect and he also doesn't really care about the height thingy. I'm just worried, that if the time of being in love, with butterflies in the belly and heart rush are over and it becomes more serious, it might be a problem.
As for me it's really a bit funny to look down on him cos it's a strange situation, very new of course.
Does it look funny to u, when u see couples on the streets where the woman is taller or don't u even realise it? I think it's quite conspicuous.

At least i'm happy that i'm slim cos if i was even taller AND more heavy than him, i would really feel bad. . . . Maybe i should just wait what the time brings and i guess i would really feel miserable if i don't give it a try at least.

From your post, the guy does not have a problem with the height difference.
The concerned party is you.
So you have to deal with whether you will still like him (when the butterflies have disappeared from your stomach) or not.

@ OPOKONWA

Ya, maybe you're right and i worry too much. That's why i said i'll will see what future brings. What could happen? At least i can say i didn't miss anything then. Am optimistic but still wanted to know your opinion about the height thingy.

Why did God give me these long legs? Nah, am happy for what i am cool
Life is destiny, whatever might happen, it's good

Have a nice evening
