    I am 5ft8 barefoot and well proportioned so I'm not exactly one of those Amazonian women in Futurama but I'm 6ft1 or maybe 6ft2 in heels. I hate wearing kitten heels as well because I have long legs and they look fecking weird and childish on me. Wish I could but sadly I can't pull them off.



    The problem here is that the guy I like is also 5ft8 and Im his date to a theatre ball in late April. Formal dress code which means I can't turn up in my usual flats, white tee and jeans. FFFFUUUUUUUU


    He is really really hot and I don't want to seem a bit intimidating or imposing near him. Gah. He's just so perfect. :suith:

    Guys would you care?
    Girls do you have any suggestions other than heels?

    I would feel like my masculinity was being imposed upon but I'd just challenge her to a fight to regain my honour.

    No I meant in heels...


    A girl doesnt have to be that tall to match or surpass your height if she is 5ft7 for example and wears the standard height of 5inch heels which would make her 6ft1 or something like that


    I think :confused:

    It wouldn't bother me, but I'd like to see a girl who's 6'8"/6'9".

    I'm 6'6", so to be considerably taller, she'd have to be 2/3" higher. If there are girls that tall, they will have UBER long legs, and I would therefore love it.

    I think it would bother girls more than guys. Having a boyfriend who's taller than the girl tends to always be a priority for most girls. It wouldn't really bother me unless she completely towered over me.

    oh i know you meant in heels, but you still have to be fairly tall. i think i'm like 6'1 or 6'2, haven't actually measured in ages, so lets say 5'9 to be sure they're taller (especially if i'm wearing shoes too). the average height of a woman in the UK is 5'4 and 5'9 is something like the 96th percentile. so only 1 in 25 girls is actually tall enough to pull it off.

    still i'd find it pretty hot just because it really rarely happens

    5 inches yes. I would wear 4 or 4.5 inches if I had the choice but they don't match with the dress. My life is ridiculous.

    My gf always worry about that and I tell her she's being ridiculous. I think she looks fking hot in heels. If it helps, I'm 6"0 and she's around 5"9/10 flat.

    Having a girl be taller than you is less attractive. She feels less womanly and sexy.

    I dated a six foot one girl once. It reduced my attraction to her.

    OK I am going to ditch the heels then and wear plain gladiators or something with a cream lace thingy dress instead, it will be a summery evening so it should be alright then. It is a theatre ball after all



    Damn it... I am not even that tall! :erm:

    You wouldn't be taller than me so i wouldn't care
    and if you were you'd probably not be interested since girls like men taller than them and all that
