  • I would prefer them to be taller than me but that doesn't necessarily mean they have to be tall. I'm only 5'1" so I'm really tiny lol. My boyfriend is about 5'7' or 5'8" which is about average. I'm happy with his height, and I have to tip toe to give him a peck on the lips. :)

  • Even though I strongly prefer tall girls to short girls, I still prefer my girlfriend to be shorter than I am. I'm six foot, three inches tall, so it's quite easy for me to find girls shorter than men. I would still date a girl taller than me, but my ideal range are girls from 5'9-5'11 tall.

    So, I like tall girls but I still like them shorter than me. Your boyfriend is short for a male, so it doesn't surprise me he prefers short girls, although most tall guys I know prefer short girls too.

  • I'm just under 6'4," so I tend to see many girls shorter than me. I personally prefer girls that are shorter than me, but I'm totally ok with girls the same height.

  • shorter just means you can pick her up easier usually, plus its more fun and its what we've always seen on tv and in films all our lives, so media must have a lot to do with it.

  • "I'm 5'2 3/4in tall, so of course I prefer taller guys." What kind of remark is this? Why you being height you are determines what you height preferences you are? If you were 6'0 tall, will it still be 'of course' you prefer taller men? If yes, is there any height a female can be and it wouldn't be 'of course' the prefer taller men? If not, why the double standard?

    I have no height preference; she can be 7'0 or 3'0 tall for all I care... -_-

  • if you are not even 5'5'' u cannot say "of course i prefer tall guys" lol. Anyway I am 5'10'', i don't really care so much about these stats but i guess as long as she ain't taller than me or she isn't a midget (under 5'2'') its fine

  • Should of added a option c "I don't care". While height plays a factor in dating, I don't find it to be a deal breaker. I can get over if a girl is taller than me, at least she can reach the high shelf.

  • All else equal, in the abstract I'm attracted to men who are taller than me, but since I'm a pretty tall woman, sometimes I meet a really great guy who's my height or shorter, and then I like shorter men (or at least that ONE shorter man!)

  • Shorter.

    But honestly, I don't understand this obsession that some people have, where the guy *must* be taller than the girl. Not everyone is like this of course, but I hear it often.

    • It's not an obsession, it's a preference, same as how you find some men more attractive than others.

    • Show All
    • Not an obsession for me, but I just don't find guys who's height is shorter than mine a trait I'm attracted to. I'm 5'10 and if I wear heals I hit almost 6ft. I also feel more feminine being the smaller person in the relationship.

      Want add my actual partner is the same height as me so it's not like I only search out very tall men.

      If other people have it as a deal breaker that their potential other has to be shorter or taller I don't really care because it's not my life. ;)

  • This is suchay this is such a stupid question. If someone already has a significant other obviously they know what height they want him/her to be. This question assumes that everyone has a significant other and every single person that is not with somebody yet, knows that their SO is taller than them. humans are not fucking psychics

    • Lol probably

    • Lol I guess they thought you were a short girl demanding a guy to be at least 6ft. If you're 5'10 yourself I can imagine that at least 6ft is something you'd prefer. Nothing weird about that!
