I agree with Jenni, (1st post)
I’m 5’4″ and petite, and seems to attract big, burly athletic guys, especially when I go swing dancing, i hold on for dear life as we dance because they always end up flinging me up in the air and clearing out the dance floor. I do have a great time (haven’t been dropped yet).
I went out with a guy who was about 5’6″ ,and it was nice to be almost the same height, especially during a good kissing session! however, a taller guy is nice when I put my head on his chest, and feel a pair of big strong arms holding me.
Dating someone shorter than me?? not going to happen.

My husband is shorter than me.
We blame it on low knees.
It’s not by much, though – only 1/4 inch or so.
It’s fun to tease him about it….and watch him run to the closet to put new lifts in his shoes.

He doesn’t really do that, you know. I hate to make him seem insecure or something.
He walks instead.

[Yeah, I don't know why my comments regularly 'disappear', but here it is again]:

I’ll save you the drama and hopefully too much excessive verbiage and just send folks to your previous ‘too fat for me’ older post here:

The height discrimination actually has more of a positive biological basis, but it’s pretty ingrained in many women almost everywhere. And I’ll repeat what I said there: “Unless & until people come to value men & women more for their innate character, intelligence, wisdom & moral strength and not just their outside beauty & youthful good looks & vigor, they’ll keep on making the same classically ‘tragic errors’ with their ill considered & perhaps foolishly short term choices. Naturally too”.

If you’re ‘done’ your reproductive careers? There really isn’t any logical or ‘biological’ reason for such persistent discrimination, well other than catering to your own prejudices. Which of course we can always imagine as being much more fun & amusing than actually discovering the rest of humanity that is less than 6′ tall. That would easily include more than half of it. But hey, no, you need not actually ‘befriend’ any of those short miscreants either!

But there really is a whole ‘nother world out there waiting to be discovered and explored, people. It’s amazing to see time & time again supposedly educated, ‘liberated’/'liberal’ & ‘open-minded’ folks consistently defend their simple bodily biases. We all know that smaller men are weaklings that just don’t last long like Joe Rollino, right? You’d probably not give the man the time of day had he asked perhaps.

Yeah, that’s the ticket, just what the world needs more of right now. More rank unthinking prejudice based not only on how you look, but a few spare inches ‘missing’ somehow. Not the ‘content of your character’, but how dark your skin is, how tall you are, and what strange twisted Western aesthetic you might be trying to satisfy. Never give up your heels gals. We all love the scenery no matter how much it hurts & what damage it might be doing. Yeah. The healthy Cali life.

Yeah I know, you all ‘just can’t help yourself’. Probably true too, and you & we are sadder for that realization. Cheers, ‘VJ’
