Had a short discourse with a member earlier, and it got me wondering: how tall do some of you prefer your romantic partner to be? Taller? Shorter? About the same? I'm really curious to see what the community likes. And while the poll doesn't take into account all genders, sexualities, etc., I'd like to see some of the stats on males vs. females in terms of how tall they prefer a partner. I'm also doing stats based on posts, so if you don't fit the bill for any of the poll options, just put up a post!

I'm male and prefer about the same or taller. I was married to someone a few inches shorter than myself, so obviously there's flexibility.  :D

DISCLAIMER:

Just as a note, it should go without saying that there are a multitude of factors that go into what a person likes in a partner – subjective ones, objective ones, values and qualities that hold greater and lesser importance than each other. People also have varying strength sexual drives; physical attraction bears different importance amongst everyone, and for some, it can be non-applicable. There's also the matter of each person's love language: some people are more receptive to touch, others to words, and some to gifts or gestures. This is just a poll to query a preference in a specific area, namely physical height. So don't worry, voicing one way or another doesn't mean you're glossing over all the other things.

Also, please be mindful of the language you use. We don't want to involuntarily oust anyone here who might feel one way or another about, well, anything honestly. This thread is just to collect input on where each member stands about the subject, not their thoughts about others' views.

I prefer the same or similar height myself. They're easier to hug and kiss and gaze into their eyes <3

I like it if they're at least an inch taller than me. 

I prefer girls in the height range of 165 to 185 cm, 175 cm would be ideal, which is less than me (188 cm). But more important than their height is their weight, because I like chubby girls. <3

It really doesn't matter at all when you get right down to it. It's what's on the inside that counts. But in the spirit of the question asked, I'd say taller would be nice. I'm very short and, being attracted to what makes the opposite sex different from me, I'd want someone who reflects that in height as well.

I'm tall for a woman, and tend to like having a partner the same height or taller. That being said, there are qualities that are far more important than height, so for me, it boils down to the person as a whole.

I'm about 5'11 but I really don't mind the girl's height. It's the personality that matters to me (beautiful eyes are a bonus though! ^^).

It doesn't matter to me.  When it comes to relationships, I'm very much capable of tolerating and accepting anything but abuse and unfaithfulness.  I can accept the 'shortcomings' or we can work through them together.  Afterall, that's what love is to me.

 

With that being said, I suppose if I had to make a choice, I'd go for taller.  As a female, it's pretty much primal instinct to go for the larger/taller men.  :orly:

Added an edit to the initial post to clarify, this poll is just querying a specific preference in a specific area. In no way does leaning one direction or another, or neither, mean that I'm assuming other variables aren't important as well. Cause, I mean, if you're dating someone just cause of their height, then... come see me later for some counseling.  :smug:

 

Another question then, perhaps, might be:

How do people feel toward romantic partners / persons of interest on the opposite spectrum? For example: if you're a girl, are into guys, and you like your guys taller, how would you feel toward someone shorter? Indifferent? Turned off? Are there cultural values in action – e.g., dating a shorter guy would feel / be seen as inappropriate?

Around my height, I guess...although if a female were my height, she'd be considered a bit tall, so maybe...a high five, near six-footer? I mean, if I'm love, the height won't matter, so... -u-

 

 

Edit: I'm on the "height doesn't matter" side, but I chose a more specific answer for the sake of playing along.

My height, which is about 176 cm, or shorter. I do not like tall women. Though overall currently those things are bothering me the least, lol.

I'm not that bothered. I'm a 5ft 4 woman (an average height for women where I live) so I'd prefer my boyfriend to be taller than me. My boyfriend is something like 5ft 9 so he is :)

I guess I prefer shorter :adorkable:. I want to be able to rest my head on theirs and keep them enclosed in me :-p .

 

But I'll take someone regardless :) .

Not something I've really ever specifically thought about, actually. Now that I have, I'd say around my height or taller. On average taller is what I'm attracted to when I think about it.
