Taller women and shorter men does it matter? Keep it real ladies...

I've often heard my big bruh Michael Baisden say though he's like 5'9" he finds taller women attractive. At 5' 8" I can relate. But then again I find big , tall, small...a wide variety of women attracvtive. I can honestly say the physical doesn't really matter to me.

When I started doing the research for this blog, I found there's a whole dating culture of taller women and shorter men. Had me shaking my head and eventually said to heck with researching this one just speak my experiences. Thinking back I must have the self esteem of a 7 footer. because for 4 years I seriously dated a woman 6'4" . During that time height never was an issue or even topic of conversation.

I once heard that women were suppose to seek men older than them, taller than them, and not as good looking as them. Is the preference from that? I can also say their are different body types of men and women. I dated another lady I grew up with that was 6'5" she was thin she felt taller but a lot easier to lift and toss up and down during well ya know....than the 6' 4" lady whom was so curvy you saw her curves before she walked in the room!

Hollywood has some famous taller women shorter men couples. Most notably probably Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.

Musically Janet J. and Jermaine Dupree are the same. both of these famous couples look veryu happy to me despite their height difference-that's what it's all about!

Ladies take on the subject? Guys what experiences /trends have you noticed?

PS If mini-me can roll like this lol....

My best experience was with a 5'0" brother. I guess he changed my mind. Size...height doesn't matter.

Lol! Awe hell naw!!!! Especially with the Mini-me ... I am just sayin! I would not be able to do it. I am already 5'4" so if a dude is not a little taller then me I would not feel right. Something about a man who is only eye level with your chest that makes it pretty uncomfortable to have a serious conversation with him....I can't see myself pickin dude up so he can get a drink for the water fountain!!! Lol! Thats just me though!

Personally height does not matter to me. I'm 6'2 and i've dated men 5'6 to 6'5 but what I realized is that the shorter men have a problem with the wearing of heels. I think that heels are very sexy on a woman and she shouldn't have to compromise to satsify the man's "issue" with the added height. ONE TIME FOR ALL MY SIX FOOTERS

One of my best friends up was short in stature and he never had any problems taking acre of his business! J.T (Who could pas as Jermaine Dupree' brother) used to say back in the day: "Girls are all the same height when they are horizontal!" That was nothing but confidence!

As for me, I make up the average demographic of a Friday night line up of "who done it" at any police station: between 5'-8" to 6'-1" between 160 to 210 lbs. I have never had problems with women head height that came to my nose, but I have never quite hit it off with women that could look me in the eye. in over a decade of social networking, I have read dozens if not hundreds of profiles from taller than average women touting their "minimum height standards" when it comes to having men approach them.
I think it is very sad in a way that these women would limit themselves when it comes to finding a "good match" just because they were blessed with a few inches of altitude!
I have often viewed the "the height standard" as very shallow, that is no different than a sign saying: "You have to be at least this tall to get on this ride".
What if tall men thought the same way and did not go for women that were at least as tall as him in a one inch heel?
Be a whole lot of single men talking about "Why can't I find a good woman" now wouldn't it? Not really, they would just to where they grow taller.
My 9.5 cents.

Smart women don't waste time playing the height game. I look for a man who measures up where it matters. My definition of a real man is one who exudes a positive self image, a nice personality, has humor, and confidence just to name a few characteristics. When one conveys such wonderful qualities other things don’t matter. I’m 6’1 and enjoy positive powerful men. End of story. I don’t sweat the small stuff.

I admit I don't like dating men too much shorter than me. I am 6'0 tall. It just feels awkward. I feel strange bending down to kiss a man. If he is 5'11, maybe 5'10 it's not such a huge deal to me. But if he is 5'5 it's just awkward. However, I do know there are some women who don't have a problem dating a man that is shorter then them. I just not have gotten to that point yet. However, in light of some of the dating experiences I've had with taller men I need to get to that point!!! LOL

I'm 5'10" and with heels 6'0". If a guy is shorter but is kind of built (meaning I don't feel like I can break you) then it's fine. It's a double negaive if you are short and scrawny. I can't feel like I'm dating my son (I don't have children yet, but if I did lolol).

it just doesn't feel right to look over a man's head. i have dated guys my height and 1 shorter i didn t like it. I would much raher have a man over 5'10 being that i'm 5'8...usually my heels are 3-4 inches so that makes me even taller plus when my man hugs me i want to be able to lay my head on his chest.

I'm 5'4 and I don't want my man to be over 6ft. Usually, I have been with men that were closer to my height and even a lil shorter than me.....I think that has always been my preference. My man now is 5'11 and I'm having to stand on my tippy toes just to hug him.......LOL.........I hate that but i'm keeping him because I love him:)
