Is it harder to be short girl or short guy?

Both women and men want tall partner for strong genetics and it is attractive to be tall. But isn't attractiveness more important factor for women?
Women want tall handsome guys but a short guy can attract her with his charm, sense of humor, status, intelligence or money. But reverse is not possible, majority of guys dont want a girl they dont find attractive.

  • The height itself becomes a problem, in my opinion, only when it is severely above or below the normal height (when you have a giant or dwarf, no offense by the way). When height isn't shocking because the person is way too tall or short, proportions are important. For example, in both gals and guys, long legs are considered attractive. That means a 160 cm gal with long legs is going to be more beautiful than the same gal with the same legs but with a 180 cm height due to a longer torso. Proportions matter more than height in general. Also a gal with long legs looks tall, no matter how short she might be (well, not too short either, of course). Then, to be below the normal height is common. Girls are "forgiven" for not looking strong if they are short. A short guy looks weak (unless he packs some serious muscle), a short gal too, but weakness is sort off ladylike, but unmanlike. A short man looks like he lacks manhood, looks weak and can even be sort of despised for it. He's not fitting society's expectations. For these reasons, I'd say short guy, in my opinion.

  • Men prefer short women. Women prefer tall men.
    That will give you the answer to your question.

  • Being a short guy is much harder because they aren't as strong and can't protect their family as much. I honestly don't know how short guys can handle it. Life would be too stressful for me to handle if I was very short as a guy.

    Being a short girl doesn't matter I think. Well, unless it interferes with you getting things off a shelf or driving your car. I'm more attracted to shorter girls usually. They seem more cuddly. Girls don't need to be tough at all and it is okay. As long as they are cute, that is enough.

      not all short men are weak. Bruce Lee and Manny Paquio are examples of short men who are/were strong. Bruce Lee was a short skinny guy, yet men that were twice as big as him feared him

  • Definitely being a short guy, there are many girls out there who apparently will straight up stop talking to a guy if he is too short. But guys don't really give a fuck even if the girl is short.

      but isn't appearence more important factor for girls?

    • 3mo

      Yeah but not when it comes to height. It's more about girls always being expected to look pretty.

  • Huh? I don't want a tall girl, I see no reason to date tall girls because it's irrelevant to me beyond convenience in physical things

  • Sort guy without a doubt. The only challenge for a short girl is reaching things in cupboards, and they may stools for that. They don't make stools for all the challenges short guys face.

      Ahaha it's quite entertaining watching a grown a** man attempt to insult someone.

      While it's fun and all, I've gotten bored of your response. So I'll leave you to it. Feel free to write whatever crap it is you had practiced for before but I won't be responding. Good day sir

  • In the uk and North America, more men prefer short women then tall.

    All over the world though, height is not as significant a factor in a woman's appearance as it is in a man's.

    If you look at old singles dating sites it's very common for women to mention desired height in a partner (and when they mention they tend to ask for 6' or taller). Men don't.

    The equivalent to being a short man is probably being a fat woman.

      Well I saw some swedish guys they want girls over 170.

    • 3mo

      Sub 170 is considered a plus in North America.

    • 3mo

      sub170 is considered like being 200lbs+ in sweden :D

  • Short guy I would think since short girls can be with most guys

    • 3mo

      Well usually guys like long hair, wide hips, full lips, smooth skin, skinny and curvy, some like long toned legs others like them more thick and meaty. Stuff like that.

      same for the guys?

  • I think it would be even more difficult for a guy to be short than it is for a girl.

    It is more masculine for a man to be tall and more feminine for a woman to be short. (at least shorter than the guy)
