ones person's garbage is another person's gold.. what one person finds offensive, another cannot live without.

there is someone for everyone. I don't know that any of that is an advantage or disadvantage..

I'm 5'8", and I feel I'd like to have a guy who's at least a few inches taller than me. This is because I'm ridiculous and I love wearing high heels.. all the time. So, I'd like to be with a guy who is at least my hight when I'm IN the heels. :P Anyhow, I guess it's silly, but when a guy weighs less or is shorter, I feel like a giant, and I don't like it very much. >_< Luckily my bf is 6'1" :D
Oh shush. I'm learning. >_<

heh I agree with you... it is rather embarrassing for me, especially with Japanese guys... most that I have met are like 5 inches shorter and lighter than me and i feel GIANT.

ha ha, I was trying to imply that since I can lift a good amount of weight, no healthy girl would be a problem to carry. A 250 lb girl would have to be over 7' before she could convince me she's healthy.

well I would be REALLY strange for me to have a taller gf, since I'm 6'5"
In fact I feel "strange" when I see someone taller than me (I'm not used to it) :D
My last gf was like 5'3", so I'd like a taller one next

I dated a shorter guy once. Never again. Of course, I'm around 5'4, so there aren't too many guys shorter than me anyways. :)
For those interested, I just googled it and got 5'6 as average for males, and 5'1 as average for females in Japan.

I also heard 5'7"/5'8" was the average Japanese male height, apparently due to a more "Westernized diet" (I automatically think of greasy McDonalds happy meals when I hear that term).

And about females being taller or the same height than males in a relationship, I see how some males would feel intimidated, as it obviously is not the norm in pop. culture.

I, being a male of average height (5'10"), would like to think that if love were the case, height would pose no boundary. Infact I tend to be attracted to tall women (what hot-blooded male wouldn't be attracted to, for instance, Charlize Theron, Gisele Bundchen or Maria Sharapova, mmm).

Being Dutch, I'm fairly tall. About 1.79m. My present lover boy is of mixed blood, but mostly South American Indian, so as you can imagine he's quite a bit shorter then me. Doesn't bother either of us.

When I was in Cairo, many years ago, there was a group of Japanese tourists. One of the guys was well over 2 meters, and not thin either. His posture was very much... (darn, can't think of the right word) sloped, sloughed? Shoulders hanging down trying to make himself look smaller.
Everybody was looking at him.
I really felt sorry for him, being so tall in a country where people are relatively short.....

Thats more like bordering on morbid obesity, for average height.


I am always a sucker for a tall skinny guy. I married one!

I'm the same way. I'm 6'5" myself and it's strange seeing ANYONE close to my height. Not often I see women that are tall AND good looking. There are a couple I've seen that look so good (even at 6'/6'1") I had this :o going for awhile. For the most part, height doesn't bother me.

I'm 5'1" and my boyfriend is 6'1". Aside from the pain in the neck it gives me from constantly looking straight up when talking to him as we walk side-by-side, I don't mind it.
