I can never understand that. All the tall girls are occupied by the tall guys for obvious reasons but at the same time even the short girls are occupied by the tall guys. Somehow girls who are like 5'2 think 5'7 and 5'8 are too short for them. What's up with that? Short girls should be available for 5'8 guys like me.
ppl usually lokking for something they don't have, so maybe short girls are so into the tall guys becoz it was always a wish for them to be tall!
but I have an aunt who is short to, and when she was single she was just looking for so tall guys, becoz she believed her daughter or son should be tall to don't suffer from thing she did, so she needed a tall guyt o marry :D I know...but that's what she told me :P I just wanted to share :D
I don't get it either D: Without talking about my preference when it comes to personality here, I like short guys. They're adorable, and it's easy to sling an arm around them and walk around looking like we're best buddies. I'm 5'3 and I used to go gaga for this guy who's shorter than me (he is so adorable) though he gets teased by his friends because of his height. If given the permission, I'd bully his friends back. Not a lot of girls get attracted to him because of that too, and it seems like I am the only gal in the campus who finds his height okay and who would be more than willing to date him.
I think we have the same dilemma here, only that it's the other way around.
He only likes girls who are shorter than him D:
Anyway, some girls like me do not mind height that much as compared to the personality. Some of us, for as long as they have a pleasing personality and they get along well with us, will pass our standards. Height and looks aren't a big thing for meh ^_^ Oh and 5'8 is not bad at all, well for me at least.
Well, I don't think it's true that they only go for tall guys. My brother's 5'7'', he's dating a girl who's like 5'3''. My friend is like 4'11, and she's dating a guy who's like 5'8''. Another friend who's average, about 5'6'', was dating a guy about 5'9.
But, I'm 5'4'', which is kinda short, and I'm dating a guy who's 6'3''. I've been attracted to shorter guys too, but I do like that he's tall. It's fun how he can just pick me up and carry me around like I weigh nothing, and it feels really safe when he hugs me. (Also I don't want to have short kids because all my siblings are short. :P) There are annoying things too, though, like it's hard to kiss on tiptoes all the time! And sometimes I think it would be really nice to be able to look in his eyes when we're walking or something.
Not really I'm 4'11 and I go for any guy I'm attracted I'm never looking at there height just there personality and the way they carry themselves I don't judge based on looks either :) but not all short girls go for tall guys I have friends how date guys just an inch or two taller than them so it's just a matter of the girls preference.
im 5 foot 2 and I like tall guys but 5 foot 8 is great too! Actually this guy I had a huge crush on for a long time was 5 foot 8. So no need to worry! we are out there. And by the way, your username is sad :( don't say that about yourself :(
Height for some reasons equals power, like the more attractive you are sometimes people think you have a better personality ( a study was done on this). Once people get older and mature, they realize height doesn't matter so much it's what you do in the relationship that counts.
to feel secure, protected, although I'm more independent
will I'm 5foot..never made it the extra inch :( lol..but me personally I would go with any guys at watever height, so long as they wer taller than me, its lak a protection sorta vibe n'al aswell I think and 5foot 8 is tall
im five two and I agree with a lot of people here, its hoping that my children won't be minuscule. I'm younger and shorter than all my friends and in comparison to those in my grade, so I've always been treated like the baby of the group or the naive one. so, that taken into consideration, I may be more attracted to taller guys because I do feel super small most of the time and I feel safe and protected with taller guys.
but, I also have nothing against guys who are 5'8" -- I'm close friends with them, friends with benefits with them, and have gone on a good amount of dates with guys who are 5'8" or 5'9".
There are no "shoulds" in dating. Nobody "should" be anything for you. You are entitled to nothing. If you're going to have that attitude, then you will surely fail at dating, even with the girls who don't see your height as a problem. If any guy told me I "should" be available to him because I'm short, I'd tell him to f*** off and get with the first 7 foot giant I could find. Women aren't property, and no guy is promised a woman in life. It's a privilege, not a right.
Height is a desirable trait. Can you imagine if humans were 1 foot tall how many problems we would have fending off predators? Regardless I don't think girls aren't attracted to guys who are 5'8 as that really isn't that short, but when posed with equal guys only differing in height they'll choose the taller one every time just as guys would choose the girl with a prettier face if all else is equal.
Tallness is an attractive feature to most women I guess. I am roughly 6"2 6'3 I think not really sure. But a lot of girls have told me that they like that I am tall. Being tall has always been appreciated with things like being athletic, being successful, hell look at whenever presidents are having debates over the television. They purposefully make the presidents look the same height so that people don't discriminate over the shorter person. Tallness is just instilled in our culture to be attractive. I think it is kind of like that study on how good looking people tend to be more accomplished.
