How can I get girls if I'm under 6 feet tall?

I'm not very tall (5'10") so girls don't like me since they only want guys over 6 feet tall (like 6-3, 6-4, etc.).

How do I get them to like me despite my height? I can't think of any way.

  • I'm the same height and I agree women only want good looking, tall guys. Some say that being 5'10 is tall really? My friend who's 6'2 is always bragging about women coming up to him. Wanna know how many women have come up to me? Zero. Just get some shoe lifts or I don't know act like a douche bag lol.

    • Trust me, there are so many racist innapropriate douches in my school and I do admit some of them are attractive. A couple even asked me out, but I said no because their personality like these kids named John and Dylan. So innapropriate. I am not saying I dont base relationships on looks too, I do a bit. But someone could be the most gorgeous guy and have a horrible personality and I wouldn't date them. I dont need a perfect supermodel, just a decent person with a big heart aha. I am sorry that a lot of girls believe they can et whatever they want.

    • @Falling4UTC lol.

  • I'm 5'5", though my boyfriend is just about at 5'9". I'm sure it doesn't have to do with height. Put your personality on display, don't be afraid because if you aren't afraid, a girl may just step up and love you for who you are.

  • Maybe the girls you're interested in are superficial, or maybe there's another problem that's not height related? I mean my dad is 6'2" but I've never once wanted to be with someone extremely tall. In fact tall guys kind of scare me.

    My boyfriend is hardly 5'7", so I don't think your height is the major issue.

  • Maybe you should talk to girls who are 5'5" and under. Usually fairly short girls don't like really tall guys because it makes general tasks such as kissing difficult. Of course everyone has their personal preference though.

  • Date short girls. You're really not that short at ALL! You're not tall but not short. I dated two guys your height and one guy was 5'8" so as long as you don't like super tall girls you're fine. Another thing is if you carry yourself slumped over and insecure it will make you seem smaller so embrace yourself as is!

But seriously, you have to be confident and just ask them out. We like it when guys approach us and are cute. YOU ARE TALL! Whoever told you you were short is an idiot.

  • To be honest, you have to show confidence. You dont base yourself off of what girls like, you just go for it and be yourself! Whoever has standards like that about guys, they aren't even worth you. I am serious, not just saying this so I can get a most helpful, I just want to be helpful. Girls like that disgust me, trust me. Saying they want a guy a certain hieght, you can't have standards if its meant to be. You just have to live life and let the girls come to you, that is where you find happiness :)

    • Seriously? How the hell would THAT help to dissaude his worries? I googled this, and the average male height is 5'9" and the average female height is 5'4". The only remotely comforting piece of advice a person of average height can receive is that there are people of the other gender who are also of an average height - theoretically giving him a chance.

      But NOW? A girl 2 inches below her gender's average has admitted her preference is one inch ABOVE the partner's average. Bottom line here is, I'm not going to judge you for having your preference, but I am going to be a pedantic fucker and make it clear that your comment is actually the LEAST comforting one on the whole page. Please don't tell him not to worry.

    • Oh yeah I've definitely realised that recently! I can improve myself and will. Essentially, this height thing has just been a minor hiccup in that road, since it's one thing I can't control. But yeah I'm gonna do as much other stuff as I can.

    • Great job! Good luck!

  • Do you live amongst giraffes? I don't see how your height is an issue for the majority of girls. The problem I see is that you may be prone to making excuses as to why girls don't just fall on your lap at the snap of a finger.

    Girls don't only want guys 6'0''+. Maybe tall ones do. If you insist on using tall girls as the case study for your dating futility, you must be a glutton for misery and that mindset trickles down into everything you do.

      I'm not making excuses, nor do I want girls to fall into my lap at a snap of a finger (that sounds retarded). I'm simply working off things that I've heard girls saying (average sized girls and short ones). This is one of those things. It's a big one.

  • Try being 5'6"! I was once on a dating site that was loaded with local girls. I n my profile I stated that I had a good job, house with a pool, a very nice car, and zero debt (i am good looking with a muscular/athletic body). I sent 20 to 30 messages to girls and maybe 3 answered back.
    I guess after they run out of 5'10"+ guys my phone will ring off the hook.

    Truth is plenty of 6ft+ guys can't get women and plenty of 5-8 and under have hot GF's. I seriously doubt you're pleasant to any women. Be honest, how often have you had drink tossed in your face or been slapped for being too much of a sarcastic ass?

    are you kidding me with this? you really think it's your height (something you can't control btw...) Next you'll complain because your too much of a "nice guy".

    • "Unless you're in eastern Europe (where everyone is super tall)."

      I'm from Eastern Europe (living in Canada), most people aren't that tall. Only in certain areas (Dinaric alps, etc.)

      "You come off as a dick in half of your responses when you don't hear what you want."

      I am a dick, I'm also bitter and a loser. But girls who I don't know DON'T KNOW THAT so it is IRRELEVANT. The first thing you notice about someone is their looks (which includes height).

      "I seriously doubt you're pleasant to any women."

      Idiot. I rarely talk to women, and when I do I'm as polite and nice as can be, doesn't work.

      "Be honest, how often have you had drink tossed in your face or been slapped for being too much of a sarcastic ass?"

      I don't drink or go to clubs.

      "Next you'll complain because your too much of a "nice guy"."

      Nope. I'm just a loser and I accept it.

    • I think the simple rule is... girls like to be shorter than guys and guys like to be taller than them... but I have seen couples who do not care about such a thing... and they are completely fine in my book... I mean I don't see them any different. As long as you are a healthy height for your age...you are good.

      At the end of the day height does not make a man. And there is more too being a man than chasing some vagina. An actual woman who is worth your time will never judge you based on your height.
