    ARGH

    So a guy Ive known for ages, who I asked out for a coffee said the other day that I am too short. Which is really annoying and you know, to be honest, insulting. Then again, on apps like Scruff......not new.

    I suppose height is a factor in taste/desire/attractiveness and compatability in bed (I'm 5' 4" my ex (bottom) was 6' 4" which made things.....tricky) but really? I'm too short to fuck let alone date???!!!!

    Cheer up buttercup, he's just one guy. Experience is obviously telling you your height is just right in someones eyes and likely the eyes if many others.

    I want a tall guy that makes me feel protected, and I want a small guy that I can hug and spoil. It doesnt matter to me if someone is tall or not, the only requirement is that they have to love me, icon_sad.gificon_sad.gificon_redface.gificon_redface.gif

    Let him be and be yourself, you will find a guy who likes you no matter your height.

    Too short for coffee? Remind him that at Starbucks the small size is actually called Tall.

    Back when I was dating, I really liked short men. They always seemed cuter and very fuckable.

    Lots of men out there like short guys.

    The smallest size is actually called short. It is the original small size and you can still purchase a short hot drink which is 8oz.

    You order a small, you get a tall. If you want a short you gotta ask for a short.

    I completely understand the whole height thing if you're a woman looking for a mate. You want your offspring to have every advantage possible. Height is an advantage. However, two gay men, no matter how hard they fuck each other, are never going to conceive a child, so why are physical attributes so important to gays? We should be focusing on what really makes a man a good catch.

    I have my preferences in physical attributes that attract me but I don't let them determine who I ultimately fall for.

    My husband is 6" shorter than I am and has a much slighter build. I never really think about it. The first time I saw a picture of us together I was surprised at how different we are but what really matters is how well matched we are in the ways that ultimately matter. If others think we're miss matched, I really don't care.

    Height doesn't matter to me. I've dated 5'5" to 6'6".
    Sexy is sexy!

    I think it's worse in the hetero world. most women want a tall man, or at least taller than they are.

    What are you LOL'ing about?

    EDIT: I remember now you have doubted of my height before, typical of you trying to find something to attack me. I'm exactly 1.82mt tall (measured by a doctor, If I wear shoes add 1 cm), that's medium height, if I were to make that up I would probably add an inch or 2 icon_rolleyes.gif. Idiot.

    Ummm...he's pointing out that 6" means six inches. 6' is six feet. Forgivable mistake considering we're still the only place in the world that still uses feet and inches.

    I see. Well in that case it was a good joke.

    Just for the record the countries that still use the imperial system are USA, Liberia and Burma.

    Don't take it personal. That's just this one guy's particular preference. There are plenty of guys who actually prefer shorter guys.

    I'm 5'6". I've been told many, many times that I'm too short.

    When you're dealing with people online (or on an app) it's easy to be dismissed based on statistics. The numbers are right in front of them, and the real guy isn't. They don't have any sense whatsoever of what it's really like to be in the same room with you, so they judge you against some silly template of what they think the ideal guy should be.

    In person, people are often surprised when I tell them my height - they all say I seem taller (I tell 'em "That's just how I act"). My best friend is 4" taller than me and he always thinks of us as being the same size. But on those occasions when a guy in person tells me I'm too short - if I'm still interested, that is - I just step in real close, look him in the eye and say, "I can feel myself growing already." It doesn't always work, but I always get an entertaining reaction.

    So you're 5'4"? Fuck man, I'd date you in a heartbeat.

    I'm 5'5 and only recall once in my life that I was turned down specifically for my height.

    Don't worry about any guy who thinks you're too short (or too tall). Plenty of high quality guys will not care a whit about height. I myself am 6'2" and have always had boyfriends who were not as tall as I am. In fact - I wouldn't know what to do with anyone my height or taller. I like cuddling with someone shorter. It is what it is.

    People that superficial aren't worth the time.
