Research has shown that height is the most important physical trait when it comes to choosing a male partner. There is also a correlation between height, wealth, popularity, looks, etc. What would be the BEST height? If you're a girl, please comment your own height and your preference.
I'm 5'3 but with my boots I wear every day I'm about 5'6, ideally I'd like a guy to be minimum 5'10/5'11.
But I'm attracted to the 6'0 guys lol my dream guy has always been the tall, built and handsome type - but those type of guys go for the models rather than the average girl like myself :(
Most Helpful Guy
To all tall guys, keep in mind that most of the people voting are Americans and that they are infamously short on average. If you're from northern Europe you can safely add 1-2 inches to any of this. No problem. More for many countries.
At this moment, 31% of the female voters said 6'0". That means that 69% think some other height is ideal. The problem with the question is that you assume that there is an ideal. You didn't give an option of "it doesn't matter." For those to whom it does matter, they will have a wide range in their responses.
When you suggest that 6'0" is the ideal height, some insecure guy who is 5'7" is going to think to himself that he is screwed and will never attract a woman. As of now, 8% said that shorter than 5'9" is ideal, so there are a number of women who would be very happy with his height, and. . . if he is looking for a LTR, he only needs to find ONE woman for his quest to be fulfilled.
Evolution seems to say that 5'9-5'10 is the "perfect" male height for a European male, with 5'7 being the "perfect" height for an East Asian (especially Japanese) male, and with 5'9 being the "perfect" male height for most populations throughout the world.
So, natural selection seems to indicate than an average male height of 5'9 or 5'10 is perfect--whatever that means.
It also depends on the criteria for "perfect." What does that mean, exactly? Perfect for what? Being 6'6 might be perfect for a career in basketball, but it would suck for gymnastics, powerlifting, or olympic lifting.
