I always see girls asking if they can still be considered attractive if their short. But what about us tall girls? We're seen as intimidating and we have a limited amount of guys to choose from. It's basically like being a short guy, since they can't date tall girls. Tall girls can't date the short guys cause it's viewed as "odd" . Boys do you find it odd to date a girl taller than you? And why Girls and Boys, do you think it's weird for a tall girl to date a much shorter guy? And why.
Secondly, there are many reasons as why many men don't date women taller than them. One being that men feel their masculinity is threatened by being with a girl taller than them. I feel that many men are more "lenient" when it comes to height than women which leads me on to my third point.
Thirdly, I believe women are way more pickier when comes to height mainly because women claim that they just don't find men shorter than them attractive. From countless testimonies I have read online from tall girls, a lot tend to "learn" to get over the height thing because they realise it's harder to find men taller than they are and so deem it "unrealistic". I personally think then that if they really had the luxury of more men taller than them, the taller women would go for taller men instead.
It's kind of sad knowing that short men won't be really considered by tall women if tall women had more taller men to choose from. It's kind of like leftovers. Not saying all women are like this though.
Being 6'4," I can say that few girls are actually taller than me. The ones that are tend to be volleyball players, basketball players, or other athletes of some sort. It is sort of intimidating to see a 6'5"+ woman. This is probably since it is so unusual for me to see em. I'm just not used to it.
I'm not extremely tall, but I see a limited number of girls above my height. It isn't a deal breaker by any means, but I do have a preference for someone shorter than me.
It's quite unusual to see a tall girl with a much shorter guy, but weird is perhaps a bit too much. If I saw a tall girl with a much shorter guy in public, I'd probably be like "Huh, that's different," but it wouldn't be out of disgust... it would just be like acknowledging something rare and finding it intriguing (if that makes any sense).
I'm 6 foot 1, uh, 185cm, and I wouldn't mind a taller, Norse-like woman!! Maybe a volleyball woman!! Some of them are hot!!! I don't care if she is taller, or strong, and maybe a little 'wrestle play' are foreplay. . . If she wins, she can choose the position, or be 'on top'!! I might lose, on purpose, with the right one. . .
>> Tall girls can't date the short guys cause it's viewed as "odd" .
That's why tall girls don't date short guys, and that's why short guys assume they can't date tall girls :P
Honestly I've heard "height" being a MAJOR factor only from women. "A guy should be taller than the girl even while she is wearing high heels" is the rule I tend to hear, although I never really knew why?
I always cheer a bit when I see same-height couples (or where the female is taller) because they're way past this bullshit.
Girls have a problem with height not guys. Only reason guys shy away is because girls make it clear that they want guys taller than them, hence that is considered norm. If tall girls wouln't make height an issue maost guys wouln't either. Would you for example wear heels?
You don't have a small pool to choose from, its your choice. Don't make height an issue and it wouln't be.
I'm 5'10" so can totally get what you mean. Do I find it weird to date a shorter guy? Well.. I used to. My boyfriend is a bit shorter than me and I had a bit of an issue with it at first. Until I realized that there's no real reason as to why the guy HAS to be taller. Will that make him more manly? Will it make him better able to 'protect me'? Um... well.. if you base your masculinity off of height, you've got issues. If you're dating someone for protection from the monsters lurking around every corner... you've got issues.
i think it just depends on the person. im 5'3 so most guys are taller then me but i still prefer taller guys over shorter ones and would feel weird dating a guy who's my height or shorter. maybe its just because im so used to guys being taller and bigger then me, i dont know but in my opinion it is kind of odd. i mean i wouldn't judge a couple where the girl is taller but i've just never been in a relationship like that so to me its different. and i dont need a "protector" but i do love being smaller then whoever i date. i just feel more comfortable. but this is all coming from a short girl so my perspectives are different. like if you're 6'0 and you're dating a guy who is 5'10, he is still tall and its not bad, but if i date a guy who's like 5'0, he's just so small to me.
I'm 5'9" and often wear heels bringing me to 6' or close to it and my ex was 5'7". I'm naturally attracted to taller guys but when everything else is right except for height I don't care if he is shorter or taller. But I get what you mean, more guys approach my shorter friends instead of me and a lot of people always comment how tall I am. I always used to get asked why I still wear heels when I'm already tall and shouldn't I be more considerate to my ex and wear flats. I think it's stupid when I get those comments, if my ex minded he would of said something also why should I stop wearing something I love to ease someone's ego. I'm Asian so being 5'9" is like me being 6'+ and my height is very coveted lol.
I am 5ft 2.. I wish I was taller. My boyfriend is 6ft 2. I know we look odd walking together. We went out yesterday and I have walk twice as fast as he does to keep up with him. But I love him. Just courious... does it bother you to see a short woman with a tall man?
Yeah my first crush ever actually rejected me for being "too tall" although we were actually about the same height.. Totally ruined my self esteem for way too long and I didn't really bother approaching shorter guys at all ever since that day :/
