Not to me. A 5'8 guy with a really cute face and nice body is more attractive than a 6'3 guy with an ugly/average face and out of shape body. But if they are both equal in terms of face/physical shape then the taller guy would win. I do like tall guys though. So while being tall is a good quality it won't override things that are majorly wrong with a guy.
However, if a guy is TOO short it almost doesn't matter about the rest of his qualities. If a guy is 5'2 then I simply am not looking at him period. I just don't want a guy who is shorter than me. I don't want to be bigger than my man.
I think it has to do with a lot of what society taught us..Which is sad. It's inmature. I will admitt I always thought I wanted or needed someone to be taller than me, but as I grew up and have dated a huge range of guys I realized it really doesn't matter much (to me..but I'm sure there are still some girls and guys who prefer certain heights not that they are shallow its just what they prefer and there is no shame in being picky specially with dating now a days) anyways what was I saying? Oh yes to me.. I realized I don't mind dating a guy who is shorter than me but he has to be comfortable with the fact that I am taller. It's a must and a deal breaker if he isn't. I'm going to wear heels and not feel like I have to slouch to make him feel comfortable. But yeah I don't have a problem dating someone whos a different height as long as its not a problem for them. Does that make sense? ha ha It's late I'm not sure if I am lol :) Hope I helped!
There are some people that don't care about height. The guy I love is short (5'6"). I agree though that most girls seem to put way too much emphasis on height...there are some though like me, who just don't care.
For me, it makes me feel like a big wall is protecting me and I feel like a kid.
It gives me an innocent feeling that gets me all warm inside.
Although, shorter guys are cute to me too. I like the thought of spoiling them, you know? With, like, hugs and kisses and such. I don't think I'm the only one like that, but according to most women I know, it's true for an abundant percentage.
I am 5ft 11 and I just don't wan2 feel big like a bloke,the guy should be taller,yeah I have turned down people a bit shorter than me,that are better looking than the lanky streak of p*ss I choose just cos he's the right height and build.but I don't like being so tall.It's totally upto the girl but I personally wouldn't because I'm insecure about my height and I think girls should b shorter than the guys.My only physical must is that the guy must be taller than me for some reason,i don't even know myself :S
Because guys can never be as beautiful as women, evolution caused this necessary change so they would react to...
oh wait. Not. Wanna know the reason? Easy. It's because girls learn that guys are supposed to be big and strong, while guys learn that girls are supposed to be pretty. These engraven sociality-originated thoughts alter the image of your ideal, and eventually girls believe that guys are supposed to be taller than them. For example, my sister doesn't necessarily need a guy to be taller than her, the only reason why she likes it if a guy is taller because then she can put her nose into his warm neck in case it's freezing. I think that's not a universal reason. xD
