Why many guys date women who are MUCH shorter than them? That's ridiculous.

That's ridiculous!!! I've seen many guys here find fascinating the idea of dating a much shorter girl.

And i don't mean shorter by 2-3 inches or so... but a BIG difference like 8-10 inches!!!

It's like draging a small child around... just look yourselves in a mirror and you'll realise how ridiculous you look.

I see this many times when go out and i say to myself "fuck!!! aren't they ashamed?"

why you like that/? i can't believe it...

Most Helpful Girl

  • I agree. I am a beautiful and TALL woman, I have better legs than the short stumpy girls, and yet guys prefer them. Wouldn't a guy prefer a woman he doesn't have to stoop down to kiss? I am 5'10 and it's hard to find a guy. My ex best friend got the guy I wanted and she isn't even pretty. She's short little girl the size of a child (5'4) and he wanted her and he is 6'2. I'm obviously the better choice. You'd think he'd want a taller girl so that his kids could be tall, but nope. What if they have a kid, and it's a boy and he only ends up 5'4? That's the worst thing that can happen to a guy. Plus her face is ugly.

What Girls Said 26

  • You're a dick. you're basically saying men shouldn't date women much shorter than them. Why can't everyone date whoever they want? If a guy is tall and wants a short girl that's fine. If a guy is short and wants a tall girl that's fine. Let's not shit on other people's preferences.

    And that's an example of something I hate. You don't like the fact that short girls are the hype because you don't like them, so you bash them and make rude remarks about them. Wtf? If they're not you're thing, they're not your thing. Doesn't make them "ridiculous. "

    And short women don't look like children, they look like short women. Children look like children.

    • you said it by yourself. cute. cute is a word to describe a nice-looking underage boy or girl who hasn't hit puberty yet. we can say for a 10 y. o. boy or girl that he/she is SEXY because it'd feel weird. so they're attracted because of their CUTENESS. THose men would bang 10 year olds if they weren't afraid of the law. and that's a fact.

    Ok is there a brain up there or are you just a very close-minded person and you must be, you just gave MH to a person who agrees with you - sorry buddy but the world does not revolve around tall people oh and here is the thing average height of a woman is 5'4 even 5'3 nowadays and guess what me dating a tall guy and when wearing 6 inch heels will never hurt his ego but if she is 5'10 and he is 6'0 guess what she will over power his height so please stop judging people for preferring what they like...

    • Haha guess you can't take the shit you give.

  • I don't know what to say here. There is more to a short woman that her height. I am 5'2 and I have dated much taller men and I hope that I gave a lot more to the relationship than that. A physical trait shouldn't be something that is judged between couples. People have types and that's fine, but why are you concerned with it? Two people met and fell in love and walk around together. I don't see how they look as a couple is up for debate with people when they obviously found something in each other that works for them. I know a lot of men prefer the 'cuteness' of a short woman to feel as though he's a protector. But when you compare how many inches that will be, really, the man also can't help be as tall as he is! Height AND weight should be a non-issue to outsiders of any relationship. If the couple sees mutual attractiveness in each other, that's all that should matter.

I've been with guys and girls taller and shorter than me. And it's never made a difference cause you are with someone for who they are and not their height. So grow up and let your hatetred go.

  • Okay, as someone who has gone to prom with and dated girls who were 5'2" and 5'3" respectfully, I can see the point you're trying to make (I'm 6'2"). Yes, it does look awkward.
    However, the average height for a woman in the US is 5'4". Yes, AVERAGE. So when a tall guy is dating a girl that's 5'2"-5'6", he's really dating the middle of the bell curve. So I don't see the issue in pulling from the averages, despite where he quite literally stands.

    Now, do I think a guy at ANY height should date a girl bases only off her height? No. I myself have found plenty of taller women worth being with. Now, height is like other physical features and can contribute to your preferences. If a guy on the tall side likes shorter women, so what? If a guy on the short side likes shorter women, so what? It's HIS preference and HIS choice. We shouldn't bash others for who they date if that person makes them truly happy. Saying "You're tall so you have to date a taller woman" or "You're short so you have to date a shorter woman" is just immature and wrong. We shouldn't force anyone to go against what they like/dislike because we ourselfs see it as the "right" or "proper" way to do things.

    Overall, as long as the guy isn't dating based ONLY on having the huge height gap, what's the issue? He can do what he wants. Don't like it? Don't interact with him.

    • i'm surprised by the fact that some girls here are calling me rude... the one who's rude is obviously you. just notice the way you speak

  • How does a guy being tall make him father like and a girl who is short child like besides height? I can understand if she acts like a kid. If two people get along, love and car about each other, have fun together, are there for each other in good times and bad times, loyal to each other etc then why shouldn't they be together regardless of looks? Saying a couple should not be together because of height difference is like saying they should not be together because of hair color, hair length, eye color, skin tones, if one has multiple tattoos and one doesn't, one has multiple piercings and one doesn't, etc. looks are only a small part of a relationship.

  • Preference for short girls is something I've only ever heard of on this site - I've never noticed it in real life. In fact, most of my friends prefer girls 5'7 or taller and short girls get overlooked. I'm tall and I'd feel weird with anyone shorter than 5'8.

    Tall girls are gorgeous - they're sexy and have long legs. They're easier to kiss and hug and you're more likely to have tall kids with them. And they don't give you neck pain! However, they're not easy to find so it's understandable that many guys end up with short girls when there's so many of them.
