The short guy dating challenge, how tough is it?

Published on April 16, 2009 by mrg

It isn't the end of the world, but you can see it from here! Guys tell us why you think women discriminate against us? Gals give us the real pros & cons in dating short statured men?


The real downside of dating a short guy is most guys are so insecure about it. I really don't care one way or another, but to have to constantly be in battle with his insecurities is the worst downside of all. Men want women who are confident and don't whine. Women want men who are the same. Once that is taken care of, besides the tendency to not wear heels so you don't tower over him, there are no downsides. Short guys rock.

I've dated women that are my height in flats or even a little taller, and boy is it FUN!!! Like Lyz says, its really about the confidence. Any insecurities in a relationship tend to kill it, regardless of who its from. If a woman won't date you because she is afraid her height will detract from your security, because she doesn't want to look like the freaky couple, because she can't imaging going grocery shopping in heels, or simply because she doesn't feel like visiting the chriopractor often for the kink in her neck, its her tough luck. I can say dating a taller woman is a lot of fun. No down sides, just longer legs!

Hey my man is only 5'6", I'm 5'4". We are compatible, I really don't care about height, not a big issue, just don't aim for 6' women.

Dude.... I'm 5'10. I only date men who are over 6-ft tall... I like to look up to my boyfriends. I don't hate, but I do discriminate...because I am tall.

Sorry. :-(

My boyfriend is certainly short (5'2"), but so am I (also 5'2"). I love it. He projects himself with confidence and he doesn't have a weird complex about his height or anything. Unlike previous boyfriends, he REALLY sees me eye to eye, and something about the height similarity makes us more of an equal couple. I have dated guys in the past who were much taller than me before, and it kind of makes me feel like a little kid or something; not a fan.

I think a lot of women need a man taller than them because they don't like to feel too big or something.

I also find that short guys are more appreciative, since they are not used to getting a lot of attention from the ladies; just a thought. Ladies, give the short guys a chance!
