What defines height incompatibility? At what height differential does one notice a height differential in a couple?

Is a height differential a shidduch issue?

Do height differential negatively/positively/indifferently affect a marriage or intimacy or photographs?

There's a Russian limerick about height difference and intimacy...don't think I'll be posting though...some people know where I live...

My mother is 4'11, and my father is 6'2. They definitely look weird together, especially in pictures. But who cares?

That's not such a big difference.

What's really weird is when the guy is 4'11 and the girl is 6'5...

I couldn't tell you how many couples I pass who have height differences because I don't pay much attention, but I saw this thread or Melech's other one about height in the movies before heading out, so it was sort of in my mind. I saw lots of people, there was an event at Shuk Machane Yehuda tonight where many stalls were open until late and there was entertainment, it was very crowded. I wasn't keeping count, but I do remember two couples where they guy was so much taller that he had to lean his head to hear her if it was noisy, and one couple where the woman was taller (but not by as much as the other two). I don't remember noticing anyone staring at any of them.

He's a little over a foot taller than me, and people comment about it all the time. Especially when they see pics of us.

I'm 6'0". My wife is 5'5". One ex-girlfriend was 5'10". My other two serious relationships were with women 5'6". Being tall, I have never felt comfortable with small women in a romantic setting. I have always felt that medium to tall women are better for me to hug and would be a better fit in the bedroom than someone 4'10"-5'0" (although I've never been with a woman shorter than 5'5" to compare).

Recently, I realized that it's uncomfortable to date anyone who is more then 10' taller. I don't like having to tip my head so far back in order to see his face.
I don't obsess I think intensely...

And all the things I should have said... echo now inside my head

Every guy I've dated in any serious-ish capacity has been nominally between 1 and 3 inches taller than me.

BUT they've all been in reality +/- 1 inch of my height.

(I'm 5'9+)

It's amazing the things guys exaggerate :biggrin:

I'm not even sure if my fiance is taller than me. Nominally he's 2 inches taller. In front of a mirror, I'm not sure. But my posture is better than his.

I think it sucks if a 5'9 girl is with a 6'4 guy. Then the kids are going to be giants.

Weird use of "nominally."
רמב"ם הלכות תשובה פרק העשירי, הלכה ב

העובד מאהבה - עוסק בתורה ובמצוות והולך במתיבות החוכמה לא מפני דבר בעולם, לא מפני יראת הרעה ולא כדי לירש הטובה, אלא עושה האמת מפני שהוא אמת

הלכה ג

אהבה גדולה יתרה רבה עזה עד מאד, עד שתהא נפשו קשורה באהבת השם ... וכל שיר השירים משל הוא לענין זה
