    For the shorter guys here, when you encounter a taller guy in public or someone asks about height do you become shy and intimidated? Or is it no big deal.

    It depends how much taller than me the other guy or guys are. I am 5'7" so a lot of guys tower over me. But sometimes its a bit intimidating in terms of how unfair it is to feel so short while others grow so much taller ;)

    I find taller guys intimidating almost always. Being tall means being superior to me.

    I always can remember the feeling of intimidation when a hugely tall guy is towering over me, particularly if they are attractive to me, I go to jelly, feeling overwhelmed, it has happened only a few times unfortunately!!! About 10 from memory!

    I'm 6ft and when I come across a guy that's significantly taller than me, I feel like a dwarf, my heart starts racing, my legs feel wobbly and I lose concentration on everything else around me. There have been 2 times in particular when this has been most intense, I think they were probably about 6'10" from my estimations, and both in supermarkets. I just wish I could've asked them how tall they were without sounding weird!

    Yes, I have had guys try to intimidate me. But they are not just tall guys. Seems like some people are bullies and go around being obnoxious. Most of them are average sized or smaller and trying to prove something. I am more comfortable with the big guys that are not trying to prove anything even if they could easily dominate me if they choose. I think I like it because it makes me look smaller and hope they like it because they look bigger. Unfortunately they don't all look at it that way and I am afraid they sometimes see me as an annoyance. Particularly in those situations I guess I do feel intimidated. But I don't feel that way automatically.

    I think a tall guys is intimidating to shorties even without trying to be. When they do try it is even more impressive. Lets be honest... looking up at someone's arm pit IS intimidating :)

    Even as a taller guy, whenever I meet someone taller and that’s not as rare as you might think, I get an interesting feeling. I quite like it, not being the tallest anymore, at least for a short time.

    Always intimidated by a guy who can easily beat the crap out of me or send me sailing across the room

    I always like when short or average guys feel emasculated or awkward because they aren't used to being lifted or picked up. It's a turn on.

    I agree. It's fascinating to be picked up but scary that the giant could drop you on your head!

    Is anyone ever worried on here they will be rejected for being too short to a taller guy? I'm curious about that.
