Why do girls only like guys that tower over them?

What is so unattractive about a guy that is only an inch or two taller than you? Seriously, are women brain dead?

  • As long as he's taller than me we're good. Most girls I know are that way too so you're generalizing lol. It's the same concept of men wanting a girl shorter than them->it makes them feel more masculine. So taller guys make us feel more feminine and little. That doesn't mean we all want them to be a foot taller than us.

    I'd imagine a girl that "only likes guys that tower over them" would be the kind of girl that bases everything on looks. If that's the case I wouldn't really call her "brain dead", just kind of stupid.

  • I've liked plenty of guys who were my height or a couple inches taller. I'm more initially drawn to guys who are tall, but 'a few inches taller' than me would put a guy at around 5'10", which is average height for men in America, and by no means short. I'm 5'7", taller than the average for women. So while height will catch my attention, it means nothing when it comes to actually liking a guy. Several guys I've liked have been under 6' tall and I never even think about it until questions like this pop up, lol. It's not an issue for me.

  • I'm 5'4 or 5'5 and I recently dated a guy who was 5'7? He didn't really look taller than me at all, and he had hands the same size as mine, small feet, whatever - I didn't care. He is without a doubt the guy I have had the best sex with in my entire life. Amazing. Nothing to do with size either, his **** was average sized, but the most amazing thing ever. Still the only guy I think about when I "take care of myself". I've been with taller guys but I have never been so sexually attracted to a guy before him - I didn't even notice the height. Occasionally when I hugged him he would take a step back (not that he wasn't strong but I guess the force would knock him back a little) and I never had that problem with taller guys but it only ever gave me a momentary pause.

  • Soooo...im assuming you are on the shorter side hence the aggression expressed in your question. In my opinion,that is a very one sided reaction to ones preferences.Why is it that men want women who are usuay shorter than them?Its a preference like any other...hair color,eye color,etc.It has NOTHING to do with being braindead...but it's what's attractive or not to each individual.

  • When a guy is taller than a girl, it makes her feel safe in a way because that's a female instinct, even to mammalian female animals: get a mate that is bigger and stronger because the more of those attributes, the better the chances of survival. Even though us humans don't bother much about survival as animals do, we girls (maybe not all but majority) prefer guys taller than us for that feeling of protection and thus makes us feel more feminine :)

  • i'm 5ft, so height of a guy isn't a big issue, I don't mind a guy who's only like 5'4 or 5'5, as long as he's solid and isn't like a string bean. if he's a good guy and nice it's not a big deal. actually I'd prefer a guy I don't have to hurt my neck just trying to see his face. but I do agree that bigger guys project more manliness and make a chick feel more safe, which is nice, but for me height isn't an issue.

  • Most of the guys I've been interested in or have dated have been right at my height, an inch or two taller than me, or an inch shorter than me. I'm 5'5". I don't care about height

  • because girls like to wear high heels and if you are like me who wears 3-4 in heels then I would be taller than he is which is kind of weird to me

  • I am 5'7 I have dated 5'8 and was crazy about him, I found his height perfect, I've dated someone shorter too and he was amazing, it's basically the main guys interested in me are taller, 6'1 abn 6'2

    my current love is 6'2.

    The real question is, why do guys usually go for girls shorter than they are?

    1. Guys like to be powerful and strong next to a short woman

    2. Girls like feeling petit and fragile

    (some, not all)

  • Calm down man. It's a natural instinct for women to be attracted to tall men. It's rooted in our biology. Men are by nature attracted to breasts, hips, butt, and other feminine features. Women are by nature attracted to masculine features like height, big hands, deep voice, etc.

    At least if you are hetero.

  • Like the other answerer, I am short (5'1"), so it is rare for a guy to be my height and if he is, he sometimes seems more like a kid. I wouldn't mind dating a guy about 5'5"-6", but I am really attracted to tall guys, like 5'11". It gives me a feeling of protection and femininity.

  • It just makes us feel safe. I know its silly and a little shallow but there is something about feeling small and cared for that is irresistible. Most women don't need a man that "towers" over her. Most only want a few inches. Personally I want my face to be chest or neck level because those are prime nuzzling spots. Its sort of like how most men don't like women who are taller or larger than them I think.

  • I'm 5'2'', so a 5'3'' or 5'4'' guy doesn't project manliness to me. He seems small like a child or a woman. I also cannot wear heels with him or I tower over him and become the more masculine figure. A girl who is taller doesn't mind being closer in height to a guy. But at my height? It's not masculine as my height it very feminine.

  • I have bad news for your brother - it's not the height that's unatractive. Look around on the streets and you'll see plenty similar height couples. And even some where the guys are shorter.

    While it definitely helps to be taller rather than shorter it's no obstacle to success with women.

  • like many of the questions that could be answered by this simple answer: Not every girl is the same. some like them taller, some like it at the same height, some don't care, in fact my uncle's happily married to a women several inches taller than him.

  • yeah, I hate how they are even against dating a guy that is the same height as them, or like you said, and inch or 2 taller, girls get judged for their weight the same way guys get judged for their height, and your weight is something you can change, your height is not

  • Because when girls tell you they care about personality above anything else they just lie. Personality is not that important, treat girls like sh*t and you'll still get plenty of p****. If you're 5'6 or below forget about scoring almost any girl. Its routed in their DNA to be selfish and selective. On the other side men are pigs and will f*** almost anything.

    • Uneducated d***head, try being a female and see what you prefer, just cos your duckass got regected. Girls are not shallow like you make us out to be, we will date what we like when we like, id love to see you date an overweight woman and then you tell me that's what you like. If we are not attracted to short guys then we aren't attracted to short guys. If we are, than we are.

    • Lmao. Go f*** yourself bitch. I wasn't talking for myself anyway. Women are just full of sh*t, and I know that because I have a lot of experience.
