    I am 6 foot seven and just wondered what girls thought about dating someone who will tower over them. My ex didn't mind it (in fast, she thought we looked cute together) but a couple of other girls told me they would find it weird.

    I'm kind of small but to be honest it wouldn't bother me at all!

    It would probably be cute and I like tall protective guys!!

    I did.

    Will admit my preference is for shorter, but height is just that to me - a preference, not a major factor.

    I generally go for guys that are taller than me, I don't like guys who are shorter than me as a rule. . Besides if I were with a guy as tall as you I could wear heels and not have to worry about towering over my date!

    I prefer average height guys, 6ft seems to be my limit but that's just me. Other girls like tall.

    Yeah I wouldn't mind, as long as the guy doesn't! I wouldn't rule someone out on the basis of height; my boyfriend's a good foot taller than me.

    I'm also a shy person but then what I've learnt is you have to put yourself out there and not shy away. Say something in groups

    You assume right. Not stick-thin but definitely would be described as "lanky"

    I did once date a male around your height and found it to be an unpleasant experience, but I have a feeling that was more to do with his personality than his stature.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about OP, women like to feel like children and all that.

    Definitely. It's even better that you're a Londoner

    I think it would be fine if I was tall or average height, but I'm only 5ft so...5ft and 6ft 7 would look a little strange, and probably feel a bit awkward! I'd probably assume that you weren't interested in a short girl anyway and that it would be nicer for the tall girls to leave you to them, considering most girls want to date someone taller really
