Would you date a short guy if there were lots of tall men available?

I'm pretty short at 5'9/175 cm and I live in a very tall country where the average height for guys, if I'd have to guess would be least 6 feet / 183 cm. Most of them are blonde and more light skinned than me too, I'm a foreigner.

I dont see how I would even have a chance with any of the girls at my college forexample. Height is so important to girls. In fact its so important that a girl would reject a guy she would otherwise date for nothing else but the fact that he's short. Why would a girl choose a short guy when there are so many tall guys to choose from. It'd be like walking around in a goldmine and picking up and walking away with a bucket of mud. No girl would do that.

Do I even have a chance, I'm 22 and I've never had a girlfriend? I wouldn't be so worried if girls didn't make such a big deal about height. If it was something they only saw as a bonus, such as playing guitar. Girls like guys that that play the guitar, but no girl would decide upon whether they should date a guy based on how good he's at playing the guitar. Whereas height is for 99.9999% of girls an actual dealbreaker, which sucks.

  • 175cm isn't short. Not at all. Of course, it's not as tall as some men but to many women, it is tall.
    I"m 158cm so your heigh is tall for someone like me. Some might say I shouldn't give advise considering my boyfriend is ridiculously taller than me but I know plenty of men your height or even a little shorter that have girlfriends.
    I even have a girlfriend who's around 172cm and her boyfriend is about the same height.
    Women often like men who are taller than them but it's a preference. In the end, what counts is the man's charm.

  • Height is not a deal breaker for me, I have actually only dated guys that are close to my height (I'm 5'8) and it just kind of happened that way. I've had crushes on guys much shorter and much taller than me. Although some girls will have that preference, not all girls really care that much. Confidence and a great personality are most important to me and many other genuine girls.

  • Until the guy I ended up marrying I only dated and kissed guys from the 5'5" - 5'9" range... it was my type. When me and my Husband started dating the height difference was super awkward. My only other semi-real boyfriend before DH is 5'5"... I was his first girlfriend and we were off and on for 18months... ever since we dated he has had no trouble pulling it in. He is not built, or cool, nor does he have game. But he honest, would do anything for you and gives literally the greatest hugs. He always tries to make sure no one is left out but at the same time going with the flow. What ever he does works. I have a cooler friend who is 5'7" (I'd never be interested in him) and he is in the triple digits partner wise and is currently trying to settle down. You just have to find your thing. A lot of people are huge on height... it's just one of those stupid ideals. Life is what you make it bud :D

  • Yes! Sure. I would date the guy I clicked best with. Height isn't a big deal to me. I'm short myself (5'3") so pretty much every man I meet is my height or taller and that's fine.

  • *You're taller than me- I dun care, let's date.
    *You're shorter than me- if you dun care, let's date. End of the story. Many girls prefer taller guys and I dun know why.

    • But would you choose a 5'9 guy when there is a sea of 6'0+ foot available? Would it bother you that the guy you date doesn't see eye too eye with most of the men you meet?

    • I really don't care how tall a guy is compared to other guys as long as he's taller or the same height as me. I'm 5`4 and my boyfriend is 5`7.

  • 5'9" is tall.
