Would you ever date a guy who is 5'4?

Assuming everything else is positive. He has a good personality, is smart, respectful, talented, has a good job, etc.

Be brutally honest, would his height be a deal breaker?

  • No matter what you do, you will always be overlooked. Now I'm not saying you won't get a girl but it will be much harder and your dating pool will be limited for the most part. They did a good documentary on height-ism a while back, it will eventually be the last form of true discrimination in the near future, since the concepts are ingrained into kids at a young age.

    Essentially, one of the things in it was that they got groups of random females and took a few of them in a room at a time. Then they got their 5 male base subjects all ranging in different heights, ambitions, jobs, hobbies etc ect. link fast forward to 4:45.

    If said person in question is you, then I suggest

    1. Hit the gym, a great body will def help your chances

    2. Start looking into clothing styles if you aren't ingrained into that already.

    3. Invest in some elevator shoes. A discreet 2.5 inches rise could make you feel a lot more confident :]

  • For me, yes. I'm 5'3 so for him to only be one inch taller than me isn't something I'd be attracted to. If I wear heels, and of course I wear heels, they would automatically make me taller than him, especially if my heels were tall, generally they are 3-4 inches, so when we go on dates I'm going to have a good 3 inches on him. Personally I'm not really attracted to short guys and I like for the guy to at least be noticeably taller than me in my heels.

  • I don't know. I'm 5'4 myself so it would be a little weird but if I was perfectly compatible with a guy who was my height or shorter, why would I give up the perfect guy just for a few inches?

  • I'm only 5'2. Aside from that, I really don't care about how tall a guy is. It's very low on the list of things I truly care about. How shallow do you really think women are?

    • Just read the other female answers here. that will answer your question.

    • Fair point, but keep in mind that you're only looking at a sliver of the female population on this site. And most who would be shallow about something like this would be more interested in answering this question.

    • I understand but I've had 100's of people make fun of me for my height. I've also had far too many women actually say to me that they would date me if I was taller. These women aren't 6ft tall either. These are women who are basically an inch taller at best.

  • I'm 5'6" and one of my ex boyfriends was like an inch or two shorter than me. It wasn't a deal breaker or anything, I do prefer guys taller than me but I liked him a lot. His personality and the way he treated me was what I really liked about him. It was kinda awkward sometimes when we'd kiss standing up cause that's when I actually realized I was taller than him lol but neither of us really cared.

    So if he had a great personality then to me personally height wouldn't be a big deal

  • Nope I'm 5'6 and I like guys at least my height or taller. That would def be a deal breaker.

  • I'm 5'2 1/2 so no

    It wouldn't be a deal breaker though because I consider a deal breaker something that is make or break after you get to know the guy...height would keep me from getting to know him outside of friendship

    But plenty of chicks don't mind

  • Gee, it kind of depends on how show she is. I'm 5'4 and honestly I hate dating someone shorter than me. I have dated someone shorter than me and it made me feel more older...Less famine it sucked. Its like dating a guy with a higher voice than you.

  • Would I date him if I really liked him yes... Would I prefer some one taller yes. This is because I am 5'7.

    If I was 5'4 or shorter yes I would have absolutely no problem with it.

  • I had a FWB relationship with a guy that was 5'4. It lasted for about 5 months until I found somebody that I was really into. I had no problem with his height. He just wasn't the type of guy that I liked to date (I typically date the more shy, introverted type.. he was an extrovert and very well known everywhere).

    Then again I'm 5'2. I think if I were 5'8 it might be a different story

  • I think that it depends on how tall the girl is and whether or not she minds being the same height as a guy or around the same height. I'm 5'4 myself so I would typically prefer that a guy be at least four inches taller than me but if I really liked the guy then it wouldn't matter. Typically though I am initially attracted to taller guys. But keep in mind there are plenty of girls out there who are really short so they wouldn't mind you being short.

  • I'm 5'8 so it probably wouldn't workout.

  • For a majority of women, yes it would be.

    Exception: You are VERY wealthy or funny.

    link

    In one study, 720 couples, only one had a taller woman than the man. It is that rare. That means to have the best possible chance of success you need to be seeking out extremely short women, or hit on every girl that you can and play the long odds. Also, make sure your posture is fantastic as to maximize every inch, plus wear shoes with higher heels than normal. You're in a tough spot, but you can make the most of it if you maximize everything that you have.

    • Im sorry but even if a guy was extremely rich and super funny, greatest guy in the world I still wouldn't date a guy who is 5'4 or even under 6 feet for that matter. I think it depends on the guy. If a girl excludes what she wants in a man only for his money she isn't into you. She is only there for that cash
