I'll go 4 inches above, 6 inches below.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Well, I'm 5'2 so probably not but I did date someone that was as short as me and one that wasn't much taller than me and thought it was kinda cute dating one that was like my height. I dated a few tall guys and could not care less about height all that much. I would date short and tall. It's whatever to me. That was the last thing I looked for in a guy when dating was their height.

I've always liked shortness, not sure why. It's cute I think. Every gf I've had but one has been like 5'2"or so.

Everybody knows you only live a day but it's brilliant anyway

It's gonna be extremely rare for someone in my dating pool to be shorter than me. Likelihood this ever happens is if I start going for underage individuals.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

Not many people are shorter than me. Some people I've found attractive have been pretty short though, some taller, some I've never seen in person. Some are cakes. With cakes the bigger the better really.

I think in real life the shortest person I found attractive was probably at a concert about my height, guy, long black hair. I bring up the long black hair as it's always relevant. Tallest in real life was 6'0". Big height differences are awkward but aesthetically I care more about build like whether they're slim vs really blocky.

I would say most women are going to be shorter than me but not necessarily. I'm about 5' 10" and I see plenty who are my height or taller around here.

I have no particular preference. It's really not one of those things I ever really thought about.

I'm not making lists of what I expect a perfect match to be. I'm not picky I don't think. I've developed crushes on girls other guys said are unattractive. What I'm saying is I'm open to be surprised by people and by my own preferences. Cupid is a capricious *******, lemme tell you.

Picturing it, I guess I would prefer them being from about my height to shorter. Think it's an instinctual male thing. But it's not like I'd avoid hanging out with a tall woman, just get the feeling I'd feel a bit weird about it 'til I got used to it.

lol ******* gets censored? B word, not A.

Flowers will grow from these wounds.

I'm 6'1", I've dated both taller and shorter and it honestly doesn't bother me a great deal. If I were absolutely forced to choose, then shorter. But while dating a girl who was 6'3", it was never an issue. If I connect with someone, their height doesn't matter.

6? You have a number? That's specific!!!

This is why you always have to carry a tape measure in your pocket. ALWAYS.

Anyway, im 5' 10., So... Hey what height are you? I don't think I know. Lol
