Why guys are so picky on height?

im a 15 year old girl and am 6 foot, I know I'm tall. But all the guys at my school are about 4 foot and so I get told I'm so tall and am a measuring tape for the guys. But every time I ask guys how come no
one goes for me they tell me it's cause I'm to tall. What am I meant to do as I can't shrink

  • You are going to have to learn how to deal with your height in dating. Every other woman your height has had the same problem.

    The first thing to understand is that you are intimidating to guys, over half of which are shorter than you are. They will presume you would not date them, and guys have this ego thing.

    How you overcome that is to be sweet and kind and try to let the guy know that you don't care about the height difference. Not all guys will accept that, but many will. When a guy says, "You are too tall", what you say is, "I know, but there is nothing I can do about that. It is not my fault. I kinda like you, can you give it a chance? I will."

    I have a friend whose wife of 20 years is taller than he is, and they are quite happy because they see each other for who they are, not how tall they are. The right guy will see you for who you are, regardless of your height.

  • The majority of the time, it's the girls who tend to be more picky about height.
    Either way... you just need to be patient soon those guys will grow up and some of their tastes will change as well.

  • u are probably intimidating most of them, u gotta find someone who finds it hot or does not care or yada yada, but basically there are people that will accept ur height fine regardless of their height if u are fine with their height.

    now u are a bit young, but just so u know, as u may not, bodies dont always line up propperly... during sex. ur size may quickly affect who u like, and while this won't affect younger guys, some older guys will have preferences over this as another factor to height, assume some girls do too. but u will find someone who likes u as u are, dont worry about it. also, i forgot when, but u might be at the age when guys are midgets still? have they had their next growth spurt yet? god i hated that all the dam chicks were like a dam foot taller than me...

  • Guys aren't as picky about height as girls are but being 6ft tall as a girl is definitely a disadvantage. Still its much worse to be a guy who is 5'6 or shorter.

    People will assume you aren't interested in males shorter than you, though

  • How can all guys at your school be about 4 foot? That's really short. And 6 foot is really tall for a girl. Not that it's a bad thing. I'm sure there are many guys taller than you. Why don't you go for them?

  • You're a tall girl because you're special. So you have to give it time until you meet the special guy. Speaking for myself but I would easily date a girl taller than me if I found her attractive.

  • i can't think of any reason a guy should have a problem with tall girls. i for one like tall women long skinny legs are great...
    but they are kids and that may be just that they dont want to be different than everyone else or be made fun of.
    dont worry they will grow up and get over it sooner or later.

    my 16 year old daughter says that short girls aren't much better she says most the guys call her a midget.

  • Cause you're still a teen and teenage boys are insecure af. They're scared that other kids will make fun of him if he dated a girl taller than him. It'll get better when you get into college.

    I'm short af and dated a 5'10" girl before.

  • Just give it a few years. The problem is you get your growth spurt before the guys do. By 17 or so a fair number of guys will be taller than you. Some of them will still like petite girls, some of them will love the long legs on a tall girl. So you can't get every guy, but you'll be some guys first choice.

    At 15 you would have been about 6" taller than me, by 17, i'd have 3" height on you.

  • ... girl, it's probably an age thing. Just give them some time to mature a bit more.
    I'm 5'10 so not that far behind you in terms of being tall and I've never heard guys make any negative comments about my height. If anything, now I hear guys saying they love my height and the long-legs that comes with it.

    Just embrace what you've got! The boys will come around.

    • To be fair I'm seeing a lot of women at all stages of life refusing to date guys below a certain height.

    • @MyMintFrappe
      Interesting... I've never heard of that happening. I've never done it myself either. My boyfriend is shorter than me but the only people who seem to have issue with it for whatever reason are those not in the relationship.

  • I don't know I just feel werid... if he shorter than me... It would be something I have to get used too (:

  • Most guys get insecure over tall girls height because men are know to be tall, strong.. the protector... but let's be honest here.. you probably can beat most of those guys asses. Lol
    You're lucky to be tall because I personally wish I was tall. You could be a model or a basketball player. Dresses look good on tall women, etc.
    As you get further in highschool, those complaining boys will finally hit their growth spurt.. and then they'll be all over you.. They won't be jealous of you anymore and they'll want to make u their girl. Just for now, put your focus in your studies and get into a good college because college boys are beautiful

  • Guys can be very self concious when it comes to height. You might see a lot of guys on this site complain about being short. So immature guys like that don't want to date tall girls because it makes them feel insecure. Hopefully that will change once you're out of high school and the boys start to mature a bit.

    • Lmao.. I'm sooo self concious about my height. 😂 I refuse to put it in my bio for dating apps, not that I get anywhere with it tho

    • @Alexious There are a lot of other girls who feel the same way as me. Of course there's always going to be some people who are picky, but shorter girls like me usually don't care about your height as long as YOU aren't complaining about it. Then you have guys like @typber1 who complain that women are too picky about height, and claims to not be "picky" but then says excessive shortness is not a good trait... how can you complain that women judge you for your height too much when you do the same thing? Pro tip: women don't like hypocrites like you.

    • I'm not a hypocrite. I'm not picky about height. I'm just saying objectively it's a bad trait. Stop trying to pretend I'm saying anything more than that. I'm not going to turn down a great woman because she's too short.
