    • What would you consider a perfect height for a guy as a 5'10 girl?

    • Show All
    • That's very interesting, I'm 6'2 and I've always considered 5'10 to be the perfect height for me, nice to know the preference is mutual with at least one 5'10 girl. :) Thanks.

    • Your totally welcome and thanks for not liking short girls lol pisses me off when the short girls take tall guys when their height difference would be the same as a guy that was like 5'6" lol

    • I've heard stories about some 5'10 girls complaining about all the men being shorter than them here, looks like you got lucky haha.

    • You're so right in saying that about the girls complaining, and I do feel so very sorry for them.

      I am though NOT ABOUT to start sharing my husband with them! lol :)

    • How would you feel about 5'7"? That's my height and it's pretty average around here.

    • @Bysshe I agree. It's not in the best interest of humanity for some guys to prefer girls with long hair either (or blonde hair or light/dark skin) We just all like what we like because we like it.
      @Mesonfielde 5ft 7in is fine. I think I'm actually 5ft 7, not 6. My cut off is around 5ft 8. Any taller than that and no thanks. It just feels weird to look and see that the guy is taller. :/

  • Pretty much all my exes and my current one are taller than 5' 11", so yeah...

  • I'm 157cm tall so it's difficult to find anybody shorter than me. Generally taller guys seem more attractive, but that depends. Overall height does not matter much to me.

    • Omg ur height is so cute xD

    • Yah, I know ;) lol, I like it :"D because like at school, people just wanna pick me up! I haven't walked to a class all year lol it's fun!

    • Well of course it's 6' and not 5'11" or 6'1" no it's 6'0" because arbitrary measurement system *smh*

  • Well, if I had an option to choose, I'd go for taller guys, coz I'd feel more protected. But my BF is almost the same height as mine.. its not a big deal at all. For all I know, he could have been shorten than me too... looks don't matter. Period.

    • Yeah a lot of guys I know say the same.

  • This is a dumb-ass poll, because it's not gender specific.
    If women voted for taller men and men voted for shorter women, how would you tell which sex prefers taller or shorter.

    I like women 2" - 4" taller than me, but if I vote it will look like women want tall men. That's not what I'm asking for at all.

    • The votes are automatically differentiated by gender, click and see for yourself. Lol noob.

  • I'm 5'7" and my initial preference is "same", so I'd be okay with 5'7" down to 5'3" because that is the optimal height difference during kissing while standing, voted B) as such.

  • I'm a very short guy. When I'm going for other men I prefer them anywhere from the same height to much taller. Though honestly I don't mind shorter, I just find it unlikely because I'm five feet tall. When going for women I prefer them to be close to my height. At most six inches taller (preferably) but again height isn't really a make or break

    • True enough. Only about 14.5% of men are 6' or taller. You consider them the freaks and the exception. They also have more health problems later in life, and a shorter life expectancy.

    • No, don't worry. This guy is a dating advice site because these people aren't really taken. I guess the fact that their preferences are defined by "height" is a part of it. LOL

  • Much Shorter! I'm 6'1" and my girlfriend is 5'3". I find it unbelievably cute when my girlfriend has to stand on her tippy toes just to kiss me

    • From the polls and articles I'd say they prefer it, but what you said is only true with some girls, not all.

    • Some guys I've dated are under 6' and I'm 5'10"...

    • Women will prefer to dat six feet and up. Some will settle for under six feet. Op just keep in mind you will need to do more to keep your woman since you are on the shorter side.

  • I am 5'9" and prefer girls to be shorter, between 5' and 5'6 or something.

    • What would a 6'7 man consider short and tall for a girl?

    • Technically most girls are short in your eyes haha, what would you consider tall? Your height?

  • I like girls who are 5'8 or taller. It doesn't matter if they're shorter or taller than me, as long as they're not shorter than that.
