I have lived my life of 32 years and never was able to put together a tally until I tried online dating. 87% Why do you ladies need someone who is taller than you? And do you really need 6 inches or more taller?

Okay, I have to admit it, I'm shallow. I have tried to date guys shorter than me. But seriously, I just can't do it.

Well, for me it's because I'm only 5'3" so if he was my height or shorter it would look really really funny. Especially to me.

Oilman, your right since most of Asian women are short and petite. We really don't care/prefer taller man. For me, I look more on the inside rather that the outside appearance. Alexisara

Claire, if the profile you have on here is correct, you are a very lucky person. You were gifted money, good looks, brains, and security from your parents. Too bad know one ever taught you humility, civility, kindness, and respect for other people. With all you have, you have very little. I feel sorry for you, I hope your heart grows one day and you learn how to really enjoy life as a happy person and not at the expense of others.

April, I am not picking on you, but as you said in your message and as your profile says, you are 5'3" and you are are looking for 5'9".. 6 inches.. I appreciate your empathy, but you didn't say you would be happy with the same height. I guess looking into your lovers eyes is only important in movies. Yall would rather look at his belly button. Again, just my comments and feelings, not a dig at you.

Oilman You really had me going there for a minute....the 6 inches thing!!! I got kinda lost there for a minute as I read fairly fast and missed that meaning....WHEW!!! lol your height is not your issue it is your confidence....just go with WHO you are not what you think someone wants or wants you to be. You seem like a nice guy. My friend is 5 11" and he is PLENTY tall....ok with me if he was 5 9 because I am 5 3 so, see, who cares.... it isn't how tall my friend is, it is him. BELIEVE me on that... I wouldn't care if he was my height ....got an idea...wear boots...you're a Texan ...wear 2" heels and you'll be 5' 11" and good to go....what do you think??? Go with the flow, it will be fine. A

Thanks Malcolm, Maybe everyone here could use a reality check, including myself, whether it is height, color, relegion, salary, ect. I have never been the most accepting person, I hope I leave here with a different view. oilman30

Oilman, It's a sad world when soulmates need to be 'measured,' isn't it? Whether by height, stature, color, wealth, or simply by the person they are, measurements are a cancer of modern society. I've never been 'discriminated against' by women because of my height, but I have known many people who pay too much attention to 'measurements.' Their loss, my friend. When one applies materialistic goals to something, so much so that they lose sight of the true meaning, then they've lost before they even began. Keep plugging! The one who means everything won't care, because she sees way beyond the materialistic. A good message for everyone here, Well that he/she should. Malcolm

Well if we are going to get into genes and children. If there are any ladies that want to marry a guy 5'8", let me know, so my children can play basketball instead of being jockeys. LOL

Well, I'm 4'11 anything shorter would be a Little Person and no offense to them but I'd rather date someone at least 5'7-6'3 because if I do end up marrying that person I want my kids if I end up having them to at least maybe be normal height. I also like taller men because it makes me feel safe it a prefernce and everyone has different taste in people which makes everyone different. If we were all alike then it would be a boring world.

I appreciate the responses. The more I read, the more I laugh. It appears the shorter the lady the taller her requirement tends to be. Don't jump all over me. I know it isn't all of the ladies here, but if you look at the profiles on here, you would see my point. I guess I should just laugh more at the things I see here than over analyzing them.

Okay, I have to comment here. Frankly it is ridiculous, even some of these comments here are as well. Many, if not most, women have height requirements of 6'0" and up, even though they are themselves 5'1", this is ridiculous. 95% of men are below 6' tall, so based on this 'requirement' you have cut out 95% of the available pool of eligibles. Stop looking so much at the outer wrapping and look a little more at the inner self -- otherwise you may be missing out on a lot of great people for you. Incidentally, my last girlfriend (of 4 years) was 5'9". I guess if I emailed her online we would have never met -- on second thought that might not have been too bad.

I'm pretty tall, so my preference is taller than me. I like my heels, what can I say? I have, however, dated many men my height or a bit shorter. My collection of flats has increased exponentially over the years. The bottom line? We all have our preferences, but luckily, many women take the time to see the person behind the short stature.

I'm just a hair under 5' 3" and I've mostly dated men much taller - 5' 10" and above. It's strange but most of the taller guys have told me that they prefer short petite women. I knew of a shorter guy who loved tall women - he liked using their boobs as ear muffs!

I only date men taller than myself, but seeing how I'm only 5'1", that doesn't seem like a requirement that would be very hard for most of them to meet. They'd almost have to be either a midget or less than 12 years old NOT to qualify!

Perhaps it is short women who need six extra inches or more, but a tall lady such as myself has no qualms with some one *at least* my own height. I know a lot of tall women who feel like that...
