Ah. Well it wasn't intended to be a smart assed reply. It's just not something I ever really put much thought into, and not something I tend to ask men about. The only times I can remember asking a man his height were two guys that i have dated in the past, but at the point I asked I had already been seeing them for some time... which meant I had already decided I was attracted to them and not really worried about them meeting some specific height requirement. But, like Leila stated, that probably has a lot to do with the fact that I'm not very tall, myself. Most men are teller than me by default. If I were taller, I'm sure I'd feel differently. I could care less about anyone thinking I'm shallow. I am. I prefer to date men who are taller than me.
