I saw some questions like "I am 180cm am I too tall?" I mean, seriously. Can a girl be too tall? :D Tallness is a mark of beauty, healthy childhood and strong genes. Almost all of my friends want a girl about their own height, may be taller but not shorter. Most of us prefer an ugly but tall girl than a super sexy cute but short girl. Personally, I am 183cm and a girl must be taller than 180cm for me.
Metric because I am Swedish
Why girls get mad? can't we have some preferences?
I think it depends on where you live. I'm 5'7 (170) since i was 13 and majority of adults height in my area were 150cm for female. My classamates average height were around 140 cm. I remember i was always the tall girl and people pick up on me for my height. One of my teacher told the class that it's good to be tall just not as tall as *mention my name* cz she's too tall it doesn't look nice. It was really hurtful to hear that esp in front of the whole class. Now I'm an adult and i live oversea. I feel more comfortable here, i dont feel like a giant anymore lol Plus lots of guys don't want a girl that's taller than them. There are exceptions but this is the majority. Maybe they feel intimidated I don't know. But it's good that you're not like that :)
I'm 187cm, so I can relate, and I find tall girls really attractive (I don't get the "girls should be shorter" idea, I like someone about my height), but the few I know are very conscious about it. I've tried my best to get one of them, with whom I'm friends, to be more positive about it, but that hasn't helped much. It's really a shame that so many tall girls want to be shorter.
I'm 157 cm :P I guess tallness is associated with masculinity and a lot of girls prefer to keep away from stereotypical masculine traits (e. g. having body hair). Plus a hell of a lot of guys in my experience would say that a girl that tall can make them feel insecure. Like old fashioned ideas, y'know? It sucks cause tall girls are great.
Well probably because there's actually plenty of guys who wouldn't date us/reject us because they'd consider us "too tall" but that's okay because everyone has a preference and to most guys short girls are probably more feminine and cuter hence more desirable. It's just like most girls would probably prefer a taller guy. It's life and the trick is to find someone who doesn't mind height. :)
