Will You Date a Guy Who's Shorter Than You?

Will You Date a Guy Who's Shorter Than You?

I couldn't help but smile at this cute photo of Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman at the Grammy Awards. Keith is a bit shorter than Nicole, at least when she's wearing heels, which doesn't seem to bother them one bit.

However, I have friends who shy away from dating guys who are shorter than they are. For tall women, that may eliminate a significant portion of the dating pool. If you're attracted to someone and you like his personality, should height even matter? Tell me what you think.

I'm 5'10 and I used to date men who were really tall. Then I met my hubby! He's 5'6. He's really stocky and solid so he looks taller than he is. He has no problem with my height, and I have no problem with his. I wear heels sometimes when we go out. He loves the attention. He loves me for me, and we don't care if anyone thinks it's weird. I fell in love with him because he's a great guy, not because he looks like a supermodel.

I was always taller than boys my age growing up. I stand at 6'0" now and haven't been in a relationship with anyone taller than me. I worry more about the guy feeling insecure, their height isn't the issue in my opinion

I'm 5'7 and I've been there and done that in high school and it was just really awkward, I felt like I was towering over him all the time. He was really nice and really cute but I just couldn't deal, mainly because he was so insecure about it.

I'm only 5'4" I haven't seen a lot of guys shorter than I am. But I wouldn't have a problem with it. I hate hearing women talk about how a guy has to be super tall to be attractive. It's ignorant in my opinion. You might miss out on a great relationship because of your prejudice.

I prefer my men taller, but it doesn't really matter. Plus I am 5'4 so I hardly run into that problem anyway.

I'm 5'1" it's hard to find guys who are shorter than me. If they are, then I've found the usually have the short man's complex & tend to be jerks. But that's just my opinion!

I'm 5'2 and my husband is 5'3. It doesn't bother me that we're pretty much the same height. I would love him no matter how short or tall :)

No, I wouldn't. Besides, I'm petite. If a man was shorter than me, he would be minuscule. That is NOT my type.
