I am 5ft4 and I am going to move to Sweden?

Hi. Next year, I am going to move to Sweden. :) I love Swedish culture, language, and people. But I have a problem. I am only 5ft4 and their woman are around 5ft7. I heard that swedish guys dont like girls shorter than average. Do you think, is it really matters?

  • I have no idea of the culture, I'd like to go with you, take me:)!

    So my thought on this, is because you are different, it makes you special and that is a card you can play to get your dudes! Think positive, that will come out of you, and guys are drawn to that!

  • Im Swedish and 5"4 lol, no problem at all. A lot of Swedes are tall but a lot of Swedes are also around my height, so its okay. And its a good height anyhow for a girl, you can wear heels all you like. 💁🏽 I have never heard a Swedish guy complain about height tbh.

    About your friend being dumped then I guess she's going for guys who are far far too tall? Or they're just making an excuse lol.

  • I am Swedish, you'll be fine sweetie. Don't worry about it. Swedish guys in general might have a preference but it is one of those unimportant ones that we do not actually care about.

    Välkommen till Sverige ;)

    • I have a friend who is 165cm tall and complains about guys generally dump her because of her height. is it really true that swedish guys dont like short girls?

    • That sounds very strange to me. Our average is only an inch taller and I think most guys wouldn't notice it, even less be bothered by it.

      Speaking for myself and any guy I have ever discussed preferences with, Swedish guys have nothing against shorter girls. You can rest easy.

  • I'm sorry to hear that lol... I'm sure not all of them will care that much.
    I really don't see guys putting much emphasis on their partner's heights.

  • You're so lucky you're moving to Sweden!

    Anyway, your height shouldn't be an issue. It's much easier to be a short girl than it is to be a short guy, so you'll be fine.

    You have to try Surstromming when you move there!

  • Listen fam, you'll be fine. And in the rare event that you do meet a guy that won't date you because of your height then forget that guy.

    you'll definitely do better than short guys...

  • They will probably like a smaller girl, its different, people like different. Be careful there though, many cases of rape and assault with all the new economic mirgants

  • I am a Swede.
    you are around 163cm tall I think. To be honest, it depends on the guy. Some demand their partner to be taller than average, some guys think there are more important things than height. Focus on the second class, they are the ones worth for you.
    :)
