I'm curious how tall is you preference? And what's the shortest you are willing to date?

I notice you said on twitter you were 5'7. I'm a woman who is 5'7 also, so you and I are both taller than the average USA lady who is 5'4.

Personally I prefer someone taller. But I wound't mind dating someone a little bit shorter than me. 5 feet 5 inches is probably the shortest I'm willing to go to be honest (sorry guys shorter than 5'4)

Currently I'm dating someone who is 5'5. He's the shortest man I've ever dated, but he's the best out of all my Taller Exs lol. 😊😊, Sometimes (not always) tall guys are jerks and self centered haha, IDK if it's true or not but I've heard and seen studies that suggest shorter men make better boyfriends/husbands. LOL

But also short women can be total nightmares too in my experience.

I've also had random short guys threaten me etc for literally no reason, but luckily for them I didn't feel threatened by them at all, I'm pretty sure I'd have wiped the floor with them, plus I'd have had to hold back to make sure I didn't do some permanent damage. But there are big guys out there who would call them out on their nonsense and potentially kill them, literally.

I remember being friends with this short guy who was a total nightmare and him telling us when his ex broke up with him he was on the floor begging her to stay, holding on to her leg saying "don't leave me", and apparently she was pretty much disgusted telling him to get up. We were rather unimpressed too, telling him he has to show more self respect, and I was surprised he'd even share that story, I'd be too ashmed, not that I'd do that in the first place of course.He also seemed pretty delusional in terms of how "hard" he thought he was, starting a bit of trouble on a night out, and threatening to beat up a mutual friend who was a gym instructor and nearly a foot taller than him.

@Kate290 Yeah, I'm a bit over 6 feet tall, I'm not offended at all though, I just find it pretty funny, but also interesting, it's not something I've really thought about before since I'm not interested in men romantically, but it's probably true, on average.

Personally, I find between 6' and 6'3" to be what I would be most drawn to, but I have dated someone who was 5'9 before :) I think height wouldn't be a make or break deal for me if it was the right person, but to be honest, I'm not sure I could see myself with someone who was 2 inches shorter than me or more... I guess that would just make me feel too... Masculine? Large? Not petite? Ha I'm not quite sure what the hang up is, but it's definitely there.

@LadyDaenerys I'm 5'8 so I'm tall for a girl, but I agree with you, taller men seem to be more jerks most of the time in my experience, while shorter men are nicer and more sweet. I do find taller guys more attractive, but my shorter exs were much better boyfriends than my taller exs. Also literally all of my tall ex-boyfriends cheated on me while the shorter ones were more faithful. I think the shortest I would date is around 5'5 or 5'4, I mean Burno mars is around that height and he's hot lol. And my friends notice the same thing, their shorter partners are more romantic and sweet while their taller partners tend to be jerks. Also like you I've seen studies online that suggest shorter men make better husbands and fathers but I also seen studies suggest taller men are more likely to cheat. So IDK what that says, I would never judge an individual based on statistics though, so I wouldn't judge all tall people as such, but it's just what I experienced and seen a lot.

@Toby "Obviously there's a danger they could end up biting off more than they can chew. Which doesn't seem ideal in a boyfriend" I do agree that someone biting off more than they can chew isn't ideal but that isn't just a short person problem, and plenty of short people can be stronger than taller people.

I did hear that sometimes short men are more aggressive, although I saw something online that says some women are attracted to the Neopolitan complex because they perceive it as more "alpha" , But I've heard the same about average looking girls who act more arrogant than hot girls because they have something to prove also, which in turn makes some men think those women are more attractive then they actually are. Sure there are those guys who will overact to prove themselves, but I think that's anywhere. Sometimes average looking girls act like they are all that while sometimes super hot girls will act nicer. It depends on a lot of things.

But in my experience, I've dated plenty of short and tall guys and taller guys tend to be jerks. They think being tall automatically makes them top game, and they start acting like they own the world, and they are arrogant. There's even a name for this, everyone calls it "tall man syndrome"

But there are tons of studies online that say shorter men make better husbands and marriages with shorter people last longer. And there are studies online that suggest taller men cheat more than short men. The shorter guys I dated were better boyfriends than the taller guys I dated. All of my female friends say that shorter partners were more romantic and faithful and they think their shorter exs were better, but they do find taller men more attractive when it comes to looks, but they are still willing to date shorter men. Do I find heigh attractive? Sure of course I do. But I do tend to notice shorter guys are nicer and more chill.

BTW are you tall or something? I hope you were bothered by the tall men statements and took it personal. If that's the case I apologize, I didn't mean to generalize all tall men, that's not at all what I'm trying to do.

Hmmm, I've noticed shorter guys often have a greater propensity for violence and threats of violence because they feel a greater need to prove themselves. Napoleon complex in action perhaps. Obviously there's a danger they could end up biting off more than they can chew. Which doesn't seem ideal in a boyfriend, but I guess since most women want to date tall men, even dwarfs, shorter guys have to work harder to be given a chance and take things less for granted, on average...

As a guy who is 5'6, it's nice to hear you say that lol! I find it funny how girls are allowed to be picky about looks, but guys are looked down upon for it. Not that I personally am very picky, or mind if someone isn't attracted to me. I just found it curious.
