    I view it more as volume. The taller they are the slimmer I find attractive. Beyond that anything my height or below is fine.

    You know I've never understood the whole 'he must be taller than me in heels' thing. If a guy ticks all the boxes and you have a great time with him, why pick heels over him? It's not like you can't wear heels around the guy, he'd just be shorter.
    I know. You can just wear flats or shoes with lower heels if you want him to be taller. It is ridiculous.

    Being 4'11, I never have this problem.

    Apparently in the US just 1.46% of men are this height or taller. Good luck
    That doesn't sound accurate to me. I'm thinking it's more like 1% are 7 foot or over, you need to back this up bruvvaa

    I'm 5'4 so I'd want a guy whose like over 6ft
    I'm 6 ft and 5'4 is quite short so 6 ft plus guys will be hard to find

    Exactly! It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    lol well fair enough, but would you consider it a problem if you were 6ft?
