    I saw a thread a while ago from a short guy who thought he was too short for a girl to date.

    Someone suggested that he polled, however I haven't seen the poll (or maybe I missed it?)

    Note, this isn't about me; yes, I'm short but I'm already in a relationship and he loves me very much.

    Yes. My bf is only an inch or 2 taller than that so I would.

    Ok 100% honest here: no.

    I'm 5"7 and I just would feel too much taller. I have nothing against short guys (my boyfriend is also 5"7) and if I were a few inches shorter I'd probably date someone of 5"2. As it stands currently I don't think I'd be able to find someone of that height difference attractive, not saying others wouldn't either as they clearly do!

    OP, you should encourage girls OVER 5'2 to reply, as that means the guy will be shorter than them, as well as shorter in general. The 'shorter than them' part is what girls are very much focused on.

    I'm 5'6 and I've found shorter guys attractive. Peter Dinklage for example...:sogood: So yes, not particularly an issue to me.

    I'm 5'2 - although I have a preference for slightly taller, if he was really well built (ie, at a healthy weight, neither skinny or fat) and obviously had a loveable personality, height wouldn't be a barrier.

    I'm 5'7 so no, sorry. If I was shorter yeah, but I'd be 5 inches taller even without my heels.

    What do you view as a healthy weight?

    No. At 5 ft 7 I'm not extreeemely tall, but I would feel very self conscious if I was with a guy who was shorter than me, even if it was just by an inch. My height is the shortest I would comfortably go with.

    I'm not usually picky about physical traits but height is the one thing that does matter to me.

    OP seriously though I wouldn't worry too much.

    All being 5ft 2 means, is that your dating pool is reduced. It doesn't mean you'll be forever alone

    I'm bisexual - I've slept with a few girls, but I seem to get into relationships with men much more easily.
