Girls is 5"9 too short for a guy?

I have heard girls say they want a guy who's at least 6 feet tall or more cause taller guys are sexy and make them feel safe. Am I too short to get a cute girlfriend? : /

  • 5''9 is perfectly fine. I'm 5"7, tall for a girl... I probably wouldn't date a guy shorter than me but the same height is totally okay, a bit taller even more. And to be honest to feel safe or protected has nothing to do with how tall a guy is.

    I've dated this guy, kind of buff, 6"4, a cop... and I didn't feel safe at all... the guy I'm seeing now is 5"9, average build and it's a whole different story.

    To feel safe and good with someone is a matter of appearance, behavior and attitude in my opinion

  • I think it depends on the size of the girl. As a general rule girls want a man to be taller than them. I'm 5'2 though. A man who is 5'5 is plenty.

  • Girls do love those taller guys. But honestly? If they just want a tall guy to make them feel "protected" then they are probably a little shallow. They want the whole "stereotypical" romance. Fairytale romance. The works. I have a taller boyfriend who is 5'10. While that is a plus, I honestly don't care. How do you think "small people" get girlfriends? Cause girls like them for who they are.

    I know this will sound stupid, but the only thing that matters is what you are on the INSIDE. Not what you LOOK like. Looks shouldn't matter in a relationship.

    • Looks do matter. There has to be physical attraction otherwise it's just a super awesome friendship that you call a relationship.

  • you are totally fine:) Girls normally don't really date guys shorter than them, but I'm 5"3 and I'm dating a guy that is 5"7. You are not even short what are you talking about:P

  • 5'10'' is average yes you're short.

    Don't blame your height on getting a girl plenty of shorter guys have girls.

    If you're ugly doesn't matter you can get a cute girl since most compromise/settle on looks.

    • What universe do you live in? Just curious.

    • I'm not kidding. My facts are straight as I didn't post about the average American woman height. Improve your reading comprehension before you throw a tantrum.

    • The average male height in the US is 5'9 1/2 like I am now at 15... You americans are so short... Pretty ;) Lol jk About you being short.

  • Most girls do not want a guy that is shorter than her but you will still be able to get a cute girlfriend. I am 5'3" and a 5'9" guy would be a perfect height for me but a girl who is 6' might feel differently. Also, if a girl is willing to not date you solely based off your height is that the type of girl you want?

  • Girls usually just want someone that is taller than them. So just find a girl that is shorter than you, which is most girls, and I'm sure you'll be able to get a cute girlfriend.

  • I hope not because I am only 5"9. But I hear girls want to feel protected or something junk like that.

  • 5'9 isn't too short. I know guys that are 4 inches shorter with cute girlfriends. I'm only 5'10 myself.

  • I am just a little under 5'10" myself in india (no lies, i have checked many times on the stadiometer comes to 177 cm), so i was pretty insecure about it myself because well, the expression is tall, dark and handsome. Well i am dark so great lol, anyway just fatten up your wallet, buy a great house, leave these stupid complexes, people have greater problems, ask somebody your age from yemen or iraq, they'll tell you. Also to massage your ego a little, the best looking men are around this height some even shorter, eg- in bollywood we have hrithik roshan ( 5'10"), then there are all those hollywood heartthrobs like tom cruise, al pacino, zac efron (less than 5"8") etc. Frankly even amongst 6 footers i feel nearly their height not short, you probably should exercise and build a little muscle, keep it lean dont be buff else u will look even shorter. Also ps, fact that women should be 4-5" shorter than their men is bullshit, a nearly same height looks better
