I have insecurities with my height. I'm 5'4 and a male friend of mine have told me that tall guys love tall women and that I should lower my standards because I'm short and none of his girlfriends was under 5'7. Is it true that shorter girls with this height are less desirable?
So i've never encountered this. First of all, you're not short so stop with that. I'm an inch shorter than you and I'm considered "average".
Secondly, tall men tend to prefer shorter women. Most of my exes were larger than 5'10. They had zero interest in tall women. I tend to prefer shorter men. You know. Because geometry. But tall men trail after me constantly.
Tallness in females is a weird thing that society tells you is supposed to be ideal. But actually femaleness is typically defined by smaller stature and more delicate features. Smallness is delicate. I'm not saying it's right or it's not totally stupid. I'm merely telling you how the world thinks.
Oh sweetie, don't think into that to much, his opinion, he stated. You? must remember this. Every person is different and has different tastes. That simple. I mean your question asks, is he right? Well yes he is very right., for HIM and his views and people he hangs out with. I can help by giving a different stance on it. I myself am not just tall, as I am 6"6 and most of my male friends happen to be over 6"0. Me? I personally love, let repeat, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, short woman. haha and some of my friends who are considered tall do as well. just remember it is all preference of that individual person.
The air is different up here. Short people may envy or look up to (pardon the pun) tall people (6feet & up) but it's not as cool as it's made out to be. The sex may be good but the height difference is just NOT practical in all situations... like dancing for example. I could go into a lot of hassles of being tall that are only compounded by being with a short partner... But just for the record, there's my reason. Not bias to be predjudice, just more compatible with someone closer in height.
Not necessarily less desirable but harder to have a relationship with. I'm only 5'11" so I'm not crazy tall but I'm the shortest guy in my family and I've noticed that most guys don't like dating people who are more than like half a foot shorter than them. I remember I used to have to bend down to hug certain girls and imaging doing that on a daily basis seems kind of frustrating. So I wouldn't say being short is less attractive but for a tall guy it is kind of an extra issue he'd have to learn how to deal with.
Im over 6ft and my girlfriend is less than 5 ft tall.
I've had only tall bf's. I'm also that height... or maybe an inch shorter - 162cm... So yeah, tall men love short women a lot - not all, of course, but A LOT of them. They like to dominate and throw us around and carry us... The dudes who said this to you are probably jealous you don't like shorter dudes. Are they shorter than 185cm? Then you have your answer...
Come on, with your height you can date almost any guy you want. Some short guys are haaawt and I'd never date them because I'd be taller than them. Though I do like my height (5'7"), I don't think it's harder for shorter girls lol. On the contrary.
Your male friend is an a-hole. You lower your standards for no one! Why would something you can't control, like height, be a dealbreaker for a guy who is right for you? I'm a 4'11" girl in a healthy, happy relationship with a 6'1" guy. He likes my small stature because I'm easier to cuddle. ;)
The fact that he weighs so heavily on height shows that he's focused too much on the wrong things in a relationship.
No i find that there's some tall guys (like 6'4" and so) who basically have a short girl fetish lol but then you're probably already too tall for those bc I believe they wouldn't date anyone over 5' 😂 But why do you want a tall guy so bad? Is it not good enough as long as he's just taller than you?
Lol no. I'm 5'2" and I've never dated a guy less than 5'11". My last two ex's were 6'2" and 6'. They thought my height was adorable. Doesn't sound like a friend to me if he would tell you something like that. He sounds more like an ass.
Not really. I am a 5'2 piece of shit and I've only been approached by really tall men, even though I am open to date anyone taller than me.
No it's not true. I'm 5'4 as well and I've only ever dated tall guys. Most of them were 6'3-6'6. My ex was 6'4. The shortest guy I've even been on a date with was 6'1. I've never had a problem with attracting tall guys. Tall guys approach me and initiate contact on dating sites just as much as shorter guys do.
