THIS topic has a way of getting me all steamed up no matter how long and how often I've seen it come up. Women are so damned hell bent on height that it's not fair at all. Height is not a measurement on the quality of a man, nor is it an indication of how well a man can "protect" a woman(whatever that means). Unless a woman needs a taller man to show her how to rebound, it's a ridiculous criteria in sex and dating. Absurd. As you mentioned, there are many posts about the height of a man on this website alone and MOST of all the women expressed hardcore insistence of tall or nothing. Look at the dating websites, women will list their requirements in a man. The first thing listed is preferred height, usually around 6+feet.
It makes no sense that women can reject a man because he's not tall and expect us to just deal with it. In contrast, if a man rejects a woman based on her bra size, there will be the devil to pay! Stupid. Nevertheless, once a shorter man complains about it or face being labelled as having low self-esteem, lack of confidence or a loser. Contradiction.
Next to bullying, this is the biggest problem that short men have to face in the world, the dating. I used to count in college alone how many times women said no to me(quite rudely I might add) based on my diminuative stature, ALL short men do. Shallow.
Is there any hope for the god-forsaken? Legal prostitution, at least the women in this industry don't say no. If you find this unacceptable, good luck with whatever method you wish to try. I wish the best for you
Well...I prefer taller guys. I guess it's because they're more cuddly, they have those big bear arms and give you huge bear hugs where you can get lost in. They engulf you with their body literally...which is comforting and adorable. And I simply feel safer with a bigger man next to me. And I don't like the sun so he keeps me in shade too... Haha =
Well I am 5'3 so I would want a guy taller than me but not a giant of 6ft. Just a reasonably height of 5'5 to 5'10. Just so I could wear heels and not feel obligated to wear flats.=) but if he is short and cute I'd take him just the ways he is and probably have to throw away my heels.
its EXTREMELY important to me. I'm pretty tall for a girl(im 5'7) and in heels I'm 5'10 -5'11 I want my man to be at least 4 inches taller than me in heels. short men turn me off completely! its honestly a HUGE deal breaker. I guy can have all the qualities I like in a man but I will not date him or even give him a chance if he's under 6'3
im 5"6 which probaly isn't that tall but I used to be very emberassed by my height just because I've been that tall since 4th grade but then I realized that some otf the most beautiful women in the world are pretty tall like tyra banks, angelina jolie, supermodel are also tall so I just learned to accept it. I would rather be tall than short though
i don't even look at short men. I know its a bad thing but I am shallow at least I admit it. I would not be able to date a guy that is the same height as me. I'm 5'3, so ..pretty short :) so ITS NOT THAT BADDD I'm already short so w/e
Well, I've had the hots for a short guy before, but I didn't really care for his height. I just cared for his sweetness and his sense of humor. In fact, I never really thought about his height until now x3
Hey it's not that. We prefer we are more attracted to, that's just it. Like guys prefer a thin girl than a fat one, or a pretty girl than an ugly one.That's just this height it's an important thing on guys...But that doesn't mean a short guy is less attractive than a tall man, but usually they have to try harder...
i think height is important. he needs to be much taller, not simply taller than me. a guy who is 5'5'' is taller than me and I definitely wouldn't go with him because he's too short.
men pay attention to a variety of physical things on a womans body, and girls do as well and height is part of your body, so its just another preference.
some girls don't mind it. I personally have only ever dated guys at least 5'10/5'11. I didn't notice it at first that I tend to go for the really tall guys but eventually I just accepted that its my preference.
I have read this question like a 100 times and to be honest I am sure lucky to be 5'10 even though it is just average, I still get changed for somebody who is 6'2 every now and then. Sorry for you man, but it seems girls DO care a lot about height. I guess what you should do is to get a great personality you know and if girls reject you, its probably because they were not good women in the first place, at least you know that if a girl wants to date you, she does it because of what you have inside and not your looks. Good luck.
