    Tall Women vs. Short Women

    I noticed that Vinyl-Junkie stated that she is 5' 9" and I am also that height. Sooooooooo,

    Gentlemen:

    What's your preference to date and/or marry and why?

    Nice thread, Lav, but where the hell is the poll?

    Anyway, being a short guy myself (170'ish cm's), I prefer ladies equal to or just below my height. Of course, like in pretty much everything, there are exceptions.

    Oh Egor, you know I'm just a *dumb red-head*

    I wasn't sure how to make a poll

    I'm a bit on the tall side (6'2") and I usually go for shorter women. You feel like you're in charge then Also, tall girls are a bit too intimidating for my liking.

    The women I usually check out are about an average of 4-6" tall. Or are those just photos and videos? I get confused.
    In all seriousness, tall women are often better to look at, but ya in real life I find them kinda intimidating too. But like Egor was saying, there are exceptions to every rule.

    My wife is shorter than me. I'm glad that she is. Tall women don't intimidate me either.

    From the responses, i guess the understanding is "women taller than you" not necessarily "tall" women.

    I'm 6'0" and I pretty much go for women my height or shorter. I wouldn't be against dating someone taller, but I couldn't see myself marrying someone who is taller.

    Tall women rock!

    Short women rock!

    I think it depends on many other factors. Right now I'm on a tall girl kick because I've been watching rollergirls on A&E and sister mary jane is awesome.

    That double shifty logic is hard to read.
    It's like:
    if (!($preference != $height->getLeastPreferred()) )

    I'm 5'10" and my wife is 5'4", but height's not too relevant in who I chose. There are more important things you have to like than whether or not you stand on your toes to kiss.

    My instinct is to say that I like tall women, but...

    I'm 6'6" and married a woman who's 5'4", so go figure.

    Tall women for slow dancing. Short women for everything else (I'm 5' 6")

    I used to feel intimidated by women taller than me (I'm over 6'); usually just because I'm thinking that she'd want someone taller. Maybe that's true in some cases, but I think the "shorter than me" standard amounts to a nasty prejudice against taller women. It's hard enough to find someone you like without knocking out 95+% the population that is shorter than you.

    I've always liked people who are interesting looking and tall women are often spectacular in stature.

    Basically I'm saying what DC is saying, I THINK.

    I tried to wrap it up a little more subtle.

    BUT YES
