  Okay I am fine with women who are taller than I am.  I am 5'10 and many women are taller in heels and many that I have dater are taller in bare feet!  Several have been 6' or taller.   It is up to the man.  I suggest wearing what you feel good in.  That is the real you.  If he can't adapt then it is a mismatch any way.   Friends I had in college was 6'3" his GF was 6'10'"  over 7' in heels.

I'm a 50 year old man and wouldn't care if the woman in my life is taller than me in heels. As a practical matter in my life, the situation only occured once or twice with a girlfriend an inch shorter than me in bare feet. She'd very rarely wear heels since she was 5'11".

Thank you XXX and Trenner :) I am sticking with the wrap dress and 4 inch boots since most seem to be in favor of. Wish me luck :)

Differences in height mean nothing in a bf-gf relationship. On a scale of 1 - 10, this is about a 2 in this one man's opinion.  Be who you are.  Wear what you want to.  If it has any true concern to you, you ought to talk it over with your new friend and find out he feels. (I am 6'0"" tall.  My wife is 5'7".  I think 4" heels are very hot. You knew that was coming, didn't you?  :)  )

Thank you for your response Craig :) Of course heels are fun and flirty, that's why I enjoy wearing them ;)

Thanks for your reply SF! My friend and I have gone out twice since our first date and we are really compatible. During our first date I found out that he likes tall women so since then I have worn only 4" heels and taller - which I prefer :)
