Do short guys like tall women?

I'm 5' 10 female and I went on a date with a short man he is 5'7 and it was awkward because I am taller than him. I really like him but I want to cut it off because I feel weird standing next to him.

Any opinions or advice on what i should do?
Have you ever been in this situation?

For about 2 years, I had a boyfriend who was about 5' 3" -- and I am about 5' 7". There were certainly awkward moments, but we moved past them. We broke up and ended marrying spouses who 'matched' us in height, but we didn't split because of the height issue but for other reasons.
Good luck.

Hey, everyone's the same height lying down!

Seriously, I am exactly US average height for women (5' 4") and have been attracted to guys slightly shorter than I am, and have had them blow me off for being "too tall."

That seems like kind of a silly reason to break it off, if you really like him. It's hard to find a good guy! I would say don't throw it away for a superficial reason that in the long run, doesn't really matter.
