Dating a taller girl watch

    I met a girl the other day at a party my flat was throwing. We get on well etc, and we're planning on going on a date some time this coming week.

    I'm somewhere around 5'11" and she was (with heels on) something like 6'2" or maybe even 6'3" - We had a good time together, but I didn't feel exactly comfortable when she ducked down to talk to me!

    The real problem is that I'm not sure if I can date a girl that is taller than me - even though I like her and I find her attractive. It feels like being shorter would stop me from being able to fulfil any 'boyfriend' role.

    - So, what do people think? How important is height?

    Nonsense, being able to protect someone is not at all dependent on height. You're still a man, she's still a woman, I don't see any harm in it.

    I'd see no problem in a girl's height, as it bears no part in attraction stakes. If you like somone, you like someone, capische?

    As long as you can beat her up if the situation requires, what does it matter?

    As a six foot tall girl with a boyfriend who weighs in at about 5'11", I really don't think height should be much of a factor. At any rate, multiple studies have illustrated or suggested that having a taller 'woman' is often a status symbol and that men with taller wives are often very powerful. Good examples of this include billionaire racing tycoon Bertie (?) Ecclestone and, of course, the lovely Rod Stewart...

    Are you just going to go around, accusing everyone of trolling?

    I'm 24 and 5'5". All my former girlfriends were taller than I am. There's been at least a dozen of them since the secondary school.

    I'm 5'7" and my ex was 4'8".

    Personally we didn't find it a problem, when you're' used to each other and have spent a lot of time together you don't really notice it, and lets face it there's almost a foot between us. We were together for nearly three years, the only reason we broke up was we couldn't deal with the distance anymore and thought it best to call it a day.

    So yeah 3-4 inches is nothing IMO. I'd say go for it!

    Being honest, i've never had a taller girlfriend. Im not sure if i personally would be comfortable with it, in my view anyway. Go with what your comfortable with, if your fine with it, then go for it!

    Personally, though, it'd make me a bit too self conscious :/

    I'm 5'6 and lots of girls are taller than me. You just have to adapt by doing things like using stairs for kissing etc!

    I guess it depends how the girl feels. I know somebody who has been with her boyfriend for about 2 years now. She's a few inches taller than him and still can't let it go, it still bothers her after all this time.

    As for me, I'm 6 foot 5" and quite frankly i'd be scared of any girl taller than me.

    My boyfriend's about the same height as me. When I met him I was wearing heels though so I thought he was much shorter.

    I assume you mean distance between locations rather than distance between the top of your heads :yep:

    I think it's a pity if you would let something as superficial as height get in between. I have no reason why I couldn't date a shorter guy. Have also dated a taller girl..
