Or do you prefer someone shorter than yourself? I notice some people make a big deal out of it.
@bruxae: Curious, how tall are you, and do you think women are more likely to pass on men shorter then them?
Personally I wouldnt pass on anyone just because they are shorter then me if I really liked them. But I do get attracted to people who are taller then me alot easier - but it has more to do with the fact that I like a man and not a boy rather then their height, if they were also skinnier and/or physically weaker then me it would be an issue but just being shorter on its own isnt really a big deal. But thats my taste, I know women who prefer small girly boys, and I also know some people who exclusively date giant packages of muscle (the really vain bimbo's tend to do this). But for the most part I think women simply dont care aslong as they like the person, atleast not as often as a man would care due to his pride.
The only thing it really affects in the end is the cuddle factor, it can be a bit awkward to snuggle a man who looks like a midget compared to you, but he wont unless you are -alot- taller, an inch or two is not a big deal.
I am 5'11 so I am quite far above average for a woman, but then again I think swedes all together is taller on average, so it doesnt end up as annoying as it sounds.
@bruxae: Haha, Amazon woman, and a fellow Swede. Well, I'm half Swedish anyway lol.
Thanks, cool to hear a girl's thoughts on this. You don't seem to like big bodybuilder types which seems to be common opinion...
ANYWAY, I like tall women, but honestly I just mostly go by whether I like a girl's look.
@ostyo: Cool. :D I am half swede half finnish. Do you live in sweden? Its not often I meet someone close to me on these forums.
No problem. I do like when a man has some muscles, what I -dont- like is when they have like 0% fat so they look all bulging and everything is so defined, it makes me think of fried chicken. Anyway, most of my friends prefer the lean types though.
Ok, now it's time for a longer answer.
While I don't mind taller women and I would definitely date them if I like them, however, i'd be attracted to someone slightly shorter than me, mainly because I LOVE when a girl rests her head on my chest or something, it's like my ultimate fantasy.
