Why do guys get angry when I say I only date 6'+ guys? Is it wrong?

When I say I only date guys over 6', guys get pissed off. So what if I'm 5'2! It's my preference, I like guys much taller than me. Why do guys care? Do you think It's wrong?

Most Helpful Guy

  • 15% of all men are 6 foot or over. on that factor alone, you're basically looking for a 10. so basically, if you're not a 10 yourself, you don't really deserve a guy whos 6 feet even if he's a piece of crap on the inside, fat, etc... statistically speaking, it still makes him a 10. or at least a 9.5.

    Lets say you want a guy whos not fat either. thats one in 3. the chances of finding either are 0.215 or 1 in 5. but the chances of finding both are more like 1 in 30. or six pack abs. thats like, 1 in 35,000. and we're just talking about physical stuff here. if you really think you're the hottest girl in every room and you're too good for every guy in a class of 30 except for one, go on believing you deserve a guy whos 6 feet and not obese. but don't expect ANYTHING from him personality wise unless you think you're too good for all but one in a school of a couple thousand. because thats literally what you have to choose from if you start narrowing your standards further.

  • We all have preferences.
    I guess people who get mad over it instead of walk away are those who are not very secure themselves.

  • No one chooses what they're attracted to, no matter how limiting that attraction may be. It's not wrong.

    People just don't like not being ideal, brings up insecurities, which is what fuels the anger. The vast majority of men are under 6', so that's a pretty large pool of people, meaning a higher chance of hitting insecurity and therefor a higher chance of triggering anger.

    It's Human nature on both sides and it is what it is. Just do your thing and try not to think too much about how others think of you and you'll live a happier life.

    • Easy , its called jealousy. They become jealous from other people and in this case , they are jealous from tall guys. :)

  • it would be hypocritic to judge you since i like girls who are taller than me and only.

    so it's just your taste... no prob with it :-)

  • As a man who is over 6 foot, I wouldn't go out with you if I knew this.

  • At 5'2 you better be like 90 fucking pounds or nobody would want anything to do with you. Something tells me you have a few rolls and that's why you haven't found a tall guy yet.

  • Anger floats over fear; in this case, the fear is exclusion, One of the basic human fears. That point should help you with further research, girl!

  • It isn't wrong, but it IS stupid. Know how many guys are 6' plus? Not many, far less than you are imagining. But if you want to limit your dating pool over something so shallow, do as you please, just don't complain you can't find anyone to date.

  • As long as you're not picking the "wrong"guy, JUST because he's over 6'

  • I don't get why people get mad over ANY preferences at all. If I like a certain "type," and someone isn't that "type" then move along, nothing to see here, there is someone out there who likes your type. Why be mad?

    I can't help who I like any more than someone can help that they aren't my "type.". Anger is wasted.

  • C) It's not wrong, but I don't agree

    It's one thing to have a preference and another to really have a strict rule about it and narrow it down, and decreasing the dating pool base on him being exactly 6ft at least.

    I'm also guessing they might get upset because you happen to fit the stereotype of ''most girls only want 6ft+ guys, no short girl even wants me''.

    • So basically those that got upset... in their minds they're like ''Oh great just what I needed, another girl making that into a requirement and I can't grow more''.

  • I would prefer a man taller or as tall as me, which is 5'10" and up, preferably over 6". I understand, but I think if you're only 5'2" you should leave the tall dudes to the tall girls lol.

  • Men are sensitive about their height in the way women are sensitive about their weight. There's nothing inherently wrong about your preference. A lot of men just feel excluded so they lash out at you. I've heard men who are average/chubby say they only date thin girls, so I see no problem.

    • Yeah but, girls can still lose or gain weight. Guys can't do shit about their height.

  • Hahaha.. I totally feel what you mean!! Just leave them! You can have your ideal picture and thats your opinion! Opinions are opinions and no one else can force you to like something else! I like black people only (sexually)... my white friends call me racist for that lol... how is that racist? its just my taste right? :)

  • It's not really wrong of you to have a preference, you're not significantly narrowing down anyone's dating pool but your own.

  • Guys care because they feel entitled to your emotional and sexual labour probably. Who cares about them. I am a little concerned about you having this requirement though :/ why do u need this?

    • also lmao I love that there's an option for 'its wrong, but I agree' that's awesome

  • It's just kind of shallow. A guy could have an amazing personality and great looks but apparently you still refuse to date him because he isn't 6'

  • It's not wrong but I don't agree. I'm like..5'9 and I could even date a guy at the same height as me. (but not shorter. ) :)

  • it's so weird that petite girls like us date excusively tall guys
    I would only advice you to keep it for yourself because you provoke a guy when you tell him that. it sounds shallow too

  • But when guys say they only date fit girls, girls go ballistic. -.- Guys can't control their height, but girls can control their weight. It just pisses me off if you just reject a guy over a stupid reason that he can't control.

  • Nothing wrong with it at all. We all have our preferences, but the height thing is what always piss the guys off. They have preferences too, how big the ass should be, the boobs, her weight - why aren't we allowed to have height preferences?

  • So you don't ever get attracted to/interested in guys under that height? I don't get it :P

  • I feel like it's one thing to say that you'd prefer a guy to be over 6', but if you absolutely refuse to date anyone under 6' then, ya I can see why they'd be angry that your that close minded, especially since you aren't that tall as well. But to each their own.
