    I know women like guys who are tall, but how tall? Is it relative? Is there such a thing as too tall? (I’m 6’8′)

    I guess some women might have a problem dating a man of your stature if they were considerably shorter than you. I really don’t have a preference. I’m 5’6′”and have dated men ranging from 5’4″ to 6’6″.

    I am 5’8″ and my husband is 6’4-1/2″. He rarely seems ‘tall’ to me because I’m used to the height difference. In fact, it surprises me when I see photos of us together. I’ve always prefered men six inches or so taller than I am, but I suspect this is a very relative issue. I think a 5′-tall woman would initially think you are ‘too tall,’ but a 6′ woman would find you just right.

    I am 5 feet tall and my boyfriend is 6′ 5′”. I’ve always been attracted to tall guys. I don’t think there is such a thing as too tall. What about too short?

    Tall guys always have this sort of mysterious/goofy thing going on. It’s very attractive, and I really wouldn’t worry about it.

    I don’t know how far I can generalize that, but being rather small myself (1.62 m), I must say there is a ‘too tall’ for me. I find sex with men nearer my size (between 1.70-1.80 i.e. up to 6’1″) more comfortable, and I generally do not find men attractive who are taller than that.

    It is relative. I’m 6’1″ and am comfortable with men of different heights. One of my co-workers is 6’6″ and tends to hang out with me on breaks. He says he doesn’t feel like he’s ‘standing out’ so much. Also, it depends on what you’re doing and how you feel about your height. If you stand up straight and are confident in yourself, you shouldn’t have too much to worry about where women are concerned.

    My father was 6’3″ and my mother is 4’11”. They made quite a pair! Keep looking, Brian, there’s someone out there for you. By the way, my siblings range from 5’10” to 6’4″ (me) for the boys, and 5’3″ to 5’10” for the girls.

    Most women have preferences on how tall they want their man to be, and most of it is relative to their own height. But some women, like myself, like guys who tower over them. Although 6’8′ is just a little too tall for me, this is only by a couple inches, because I like guys around the height of 6’4′. But I’m only 5’1′, so I’m sure some girls who are 5’6′ definitely wouldn’t mind.

    I’m 5’5″, and as far as I’m concerned a man can never be too tall. In fact, I totally disregard a man as a potential partner if he is shorter than me – even if he is the same height, I don’t feel comfortable.

    I would say 6’8′ is too tall for me, and I’m around 5’4′. I once had a dance partner who was your height; He wasn’t intimidating normally, but when paired up with him, my forehead would be level with his sternum! I think it would be difficult for me to date a man so tall. The tallest man I dated was 6’3′ and I felt a little uncomfortable with that height. I prefer to date a man on the ‘shorter side,’ although I have had boyfriends of varying heights.

    Well, since you would be a foot and five inches taller than me, I’d say that would be a little too high for me to crane my neck. But you see, I’m rather short. It’s a comparison thing. I’m naturally attracted to guys who are about 5’10’-6 feet. Mostly because that means they’re chins are about level with the top of my head. But it’s also a person-to-person thing. And there’s always the fact that you can’t always help who you fall for, preferences are just that.
