Most Helpful Girl

  • 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 :(

  • 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.

  • For me it's like 6'2". My boyfriend is 6'4" and that's a little too tall. We both have back issues because of it. Still, I am taller than the average woman.

    I don't think you can find the "best" height because it is a terribly subjective thing.

    I'm 5'2" and as long as I don't have to look down to make eye contact I'm good, but most of the guys I've dated have been 5'9 or taller

  • I tend to find myself attracted / surrounded by males who are 5'10 + so that's my answer.

    Though I don't count out the guys who may be shorter... they just haven't ever been super prominent in my life.

What Guys Said 17

  • 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.

    • The definition if "ideal" is "satisfying ONE's conception of what is perfect; most suitable". The goal of this poll is not to find the single height that is perfect for EVERYONE in the world, but rather take in consideration of individuals' opinions and conclude on the "most" preferable height. Again, "most" does not mean "all". Also, most people are aware that height is a subjective term.

      You mentioned, "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". This claim is very misleading. There were 30% of people who prefered a height less than 6'0. This should actually inform the 5'7 man that there are people who actually prefer HIS height and give him more confidence. If he is "insecure", he must also understand that height is not the only important factor. Learn the difference between "preferred" and "requirement".

    • So I assume that you are incapable of saying, "I misspoke."

      How do you know that other people care about the results of your poll? Let's post another question and ask people if they care!

      Insulting the intelligence of your opponent in a debate is not a winning tactic. Most people view it merely as a indicator of your level of maturity.

    • No, it's not that im incapable of saying, "I misspoke". I could easily say that you are incapable of saying, "I misunderstood".

      Like I said, if nobody was curious than nobody would have clicked on it and chose to participate in it.

      The reason why I insulted your intelligence is because this should not even be a debate. I am starting to think that you are disillusional. Your comments on this post will be ignored from now on. I feel like I am literally talking to a brick wall.

    • Lol I think 6'3" is hard to call "perfect height" when the poll is set up the way it is because a 6'3" guy would be harder to find. If you read the comments most girls say x height minimum or taller. It's rare that I've ever heard a girl rejecting a guy for being "too tall" (too short is more common, although I'm so short that it's rarely an issue for me)

  • 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.

    • Where did you get all this "scientific" information? Current data shows that the most ideal height for a man is 5'11, while 5'6 being the most ideal for a woman.

      You mentioned that 5'9-10 is the "perfect" height for a European male while 5'7 being the "perfect" male height. Your claim is misleading because what you are talking about here is the AVERAGE height, not the most preferred height. Also, the height of Asian men have recently increased due to better global nutrition... Averages don't always mean the most ideal or most prefered.

      You are not supposed to take the word "perfect" literally. Nothing in the world is "perfect". The point of the question was simply, "What is the MOST PREFERED height of a male". You are going to the extremes by asking "Perfect for what? basketball? gymnastics?". I am simply asking for people's PREFERENCES, and concluding on the "most ideal" height by looking at the end data. Don't overthink things.

    • Yeah, those heights are the averages. Exactly. Evolutionary pressures didn't choose those heights arbitrarily.

      Since height is completely fixed outside of leg lengthening, arbitrary female preferences in height are a moot point. You can't change height, so fascination in their preferences there just don't mean much.
