    I would say no eventhough some women want a man whose taller.

    Subtle differences I don't think would have any influence. However; if there is a couple where the woman is 6'2" and the man is 5'6", the reactions from other people could take a toll on the confidence in their relationship. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    It won't effect unless there is so much difference.

    I hope that the only possible answer is no!

    It's never affected me, but I'm 6'4 so I've gotten used to shorter women.

    I would not think so as long as the two people accept eachother for who they are. I remember a boy in middle school liked me. I was tall for my age. He was alot shorter. He was so cute too. He asked me to go out with him and I did not. I was young and thought I am too tall.. not that he was too short. A week later he was hand in hand with a girl taller than me. I was kind of jealous. I probibly missed out on a great guy!

    dynamite comes in small boxes, and BS comes by the wagon load,... physical size matters little compared to the size of ones heart.

    I would like to say no, but being 6'0" myself + heels of minimum 3", the only answer here is YES, and a LOT.

    Height will make a difference in your relationship if you let it matter and make a big deal about it.

    I don't believe it does if everything else is in good stead.  If a couple gets along, are kind and honest with each other--who cares how tall they are?

    Although--having said that--I think sometimes we are attracted to people of varying heights.  I knew a gal once who did not like tall men.  Really?  I love tall men-my husband is 6'4"  Would I have noticed him if he were 5'4"  I don't really know.

    I think there is no effect about the difference in height. The attraction in a relationship originates from the mutual hobbies, characters and so on. Height is only artificial.

    Difference in height has no place in a relationship especially when both love each other.

    It depends on the people.  But in my experience (I'm female), whenever I've had boyfriends who were shorter than me, they've had an inferiority complex about it.  It eventually upsets the whole relationship, and throws everything out of balance.  There seems to be a short man syndrome.  If you notice, they usually drive HUGE cars.

    hopefully not! I'm a petite 5'2 and my husband is 6' and muscular. Sometimes it hurts when he hugs me too tight (lol), but that's about it smile
    As long as you love someone for who and what they are, nothing makes a difference.
