    Does anyone have preferences in height difference between possible partners?

    Being relatively tall (6' 2") my ideal partner would be around the same height as me, but it seems like there are a lot more short guys available and they tend to be more attractive (don't bite my head off, just an observation).

    A friend of mine would always say "height doesn't matter once you're lying down", which I always laugh at and somewhat agree to, but does height matter outside of the bedroom?

    Do you guys generally have height requirements (must be at least this tall to ride)?

    No. I don't think it makes a difference to anyone who is not hung up about their own height.

    I am 6', my partner about an inch taller.

    Have had BF' both short and tall - never made a difference to me.

    Yeah--I was always attracted to guys my height--6'1", until I met my partner who is 5'6". Amazing what love can do

    For me, yes height does make a difference....anyone 5' 6" or taller is tall to me : )

    Personally I prefer guys not too much taller than me, shorter is even better. I don't know but I just feel more comfortable with a range from about 5' 3" to 5' 9". Taller guys have always generally made me feel like they just assume because I'm short that I'm going to be the passive one in the relationship or sexual situation and I really prefer not to be. Don't get me wrong, I can take that role with the right person but I hate when someone just assumes things are going to be a certain way.

    I have a hard time finding guys in that range where we are mutually attracted to one another.

    Well, for me at 6' 2" I have had to deal with much shorter guys in dating but I prefer ones that are at least 5'8 or more.
    My last lover was exactly 6 feet tall and 150lbs... absolutely Ideal physically BUT as you all know that is only the begining and it is the complex chemistry that determines attractiveness and staying power in a realtionship.

    I am not a tall guy either (at 5' 8") and I usually prefer guys within a couple inches of my height. I've dated taller than me and I have to stand on tips toes to hug or kiss; so I usually disregard guys over 6' as "out of my league". Curiously, my bf right now is 6' 2" but the chemistry just worked. I agree with Craigsjourney, amazing what love will do...

    What does height or age matter if the chemistry is there?

    Height doesn't matter to me. That said, I've never dated anyone taller than me (I'm 5ft9) although I've had sex with plenty of tall men. In my experience tall men - to me anything over 5ft11 is tall - don't seem to notice guys who are much shorter than themselves.

    I'm 6'1 (and a 1/2!)" and all the guys I've slept with have been shorter than me, save one Swede that was packing 10". Who'd say no to that?!

    Hmm... I haven't had a dwarf, yet.

    I am 5 ft 6 , a typical Asian guy. Most of guy I been with are around that height some a few inchs taller/shorter. I prefer them about my height , to tall or to short make it difficult to have a passionate kiss with him (I just love kissing). You dont suggest I need to climb this guy in other to kiss him, dont you.

    One of my most unforgetable bf , Joel ,are about 5 ft 9. He is just perfect , when I am dancing with him I could put my head on his shoulder, kiss him passionately and when his on top of me, every things face , chest, dick, leg all in direct contact of each other.

    Well I am 6'5'' and I have dated everyone from my height down to really short (5'6'')... So for me I don't really have a preference.. But I have noticed that people that are below 6 foot, typically do not give me the time of day. Be it, they are not into people my height, or are intimidated by me, or maybe I am just missing them hitting on me cause I can not see them.. Whatever it is, I find guys 6 foot and taller tend to work out alot easier. But as always it's about their personality and how it matches mine.

    I'm genuinely short (5'3") - so almost *everyone* is taller than me.
    Short, well proportioned guys always look hot (something about all that masculinity condensed into a more intense package... ;) ) - but I must admit I always seem to go for guys taller than me:
    my partner is 5'7" - just tall enough to notice, but not too tall to get neck ache trying to kiss him ;)
    I'm an SM player too, and most of the Tops I've played with have been in the 5'8"-6' range - and have gone for me *specifically* because of my small size and weight (apparently it makes it much easier to move me around when I'm "immobile" ;) ).
    My current Master/Handler is 6'4" - and I only come up to His chin. It feels *very* protective to have Him towering over me in a club - or even better, carrying me in His arms or over His shoulder...!

    I've found that it's awkward with guys not somewhere in a range thats equal to me
    I'm 6'2" so guys below say 5'8" and above 5'4
    and above 6'4" I'm not going to be attracted to

    I think I've only ever dated one or two guys that were as tall or taller than me. I never really thought about it till I read this topic.

    I guess I'm kind of tall at 6 foot. I don't really think about it until I see myself in pictures with other people.

    If a guy is shorter than me, it works out better for snuggling (I like to be the "snuggler" instead of the "snugglee").

    Oh I'm sure they notice you, Calrower. They probably just assume you're into taller guys. I'm a shorter guy at 5'7 and have always appreciated the taller guys. That said, I've never been with anyone much over 5'8. Maybe they really couldn't see me...heh

    Yes, height does matter... a lot!!! in how the world perceives you... Look at any study that relates height to pay, social standing or any other measure of status. the taller the better... there is a point where the freak factor kicks in a it starts to be a problem hout that is over 6.5ft...

    People equate height with maturity and wisdow and to the point that in starting pay for new hires every inch is worth $1000 or more per year.

    Well, I am a top and I am 5'7".
    So, I like guys that are shorter than me.

    Don't get me wrong, I have tried taller guys than me and it just did not work.

    I felt kind of like an OOMPA-LOOMPA from "Willy Wonka and the chocalate factory" climbing all over them.
    I mean, it was WORK.
    His legs were way too long and then, he tried to sit on me and that was alot of laughs.
    We started cracking up and just agreed to call it a draw.

    I am a short shit so, it just did not work.
    And believe me I tried.

    It's also a hoot when I go to orgies and I'm standing in line with all of the other tops waiting for my turn at the bottom and once again, I fell like and an oompa-loompa standing in the middle of a bunch of redwood trees.

    I have a pair of clients who have been partners for about 15 years. One is 6'5" YES 6'5" and the other is 5'3" YES 5'3"...

    I think the 5'3" is the top - for what it's worth...

    When it comes to height, I'm 5'10", but a guy taller than me catches my eyes faster than one shorter than me. I wouldn't be biased either way though, I find myself attracted to all different height's.

    I've always been attracted to taller guys for some reason (maybe they were just more competition when wrestling). It seems most guys are taller than me at 5'7", but I would not ignore shorter guys just because of their height.
