I'm about 5'7. I'm athletic, swole, pretty cute and fun guy to be around (from what I'm told). Some girls seem to like me but my height appears to be an instant deal breaker. What's the BIG deal? Haha(: like for real, this one girl I heard saw me one day and didn't know I was that short and we stopped talking. I was an inch taller than her too. I feel like girls who are just slightly shorter than me or my height still prefer tall guys while girls 1-3 inches taller than me won't even give me a chance after we first meet. Why do guys always have to be taller than their girlfriends? Screw society, lets start a new trend, short guys are the new 'HOT' (I wish haha).
Now lets get serious, the real reason why I'm here is because there's this drop-dead gorgeous girl, who's about 5'8-5'10, that goes to my college. We talked through Twitter and we have a lot in common and I believe I have a shot with her BUT my height could be a road block. We will probably hangout eventually but jeez the look on her face when she has to look down to me haha. So any advice? Girls, what do you feel about short guys? Deal-breaker? Don't care, it's whatever? What's up with the fascination of tall dudes? Anything else y'all can provide, feel free to. I wanna hear it! Please and thank you very much!
I would also like to hear what y'all think about my chances with this 5'8-5'10 chick, thanks! :)
Thanks for ALL the answers y'all! I loved them all and I will write an update on how it goes with this girl, wish me luck! ;)
i say go for it with the girl you're interested in. if she turns you down for something dumb like height, she's not worth it. I'll be honest, I have a thing for really tall guys. I like guys who are 6' and over. I'm especially attracted to that type of guy, but a guy who is 5'7 isn't a turn off for me at least because I'm 5'2 and just about every guy is taller than me. you sound like an awesome person and you shouldn't worry about stupid girls that turn you down because of your height :)
It's not like I'll call you a midget, you're in proportion and that's a good thing!
For me, because I'm a bigger girl, I prefer my man to be taller. At least then I can have feelings of smallness (while I'm dieting and exercising away...) I've always preferred taller men, I just love someone bending his head down to me. It's a thing for me. I'm not saying you have to be 6foot tall, just a couple inches taller.
That's just me - I have friends who date men of any height, so I think it's just my personal weird thing!
Give it a go with the girl! You never know, could be the best decision you ever made!
For me it would only be a deal breaker cause I'm taller than you - and it makes me feel insecure / like a fat giant !
I have friends thoguht are totally fine with it and date shorter guys. My 6ft friend is dating a 5'8 gy atm :) She says the difference is - she feels like he's actually the guy for her so she doesn't care and she's never felt like that before
I prefer taller cause I like to feel small as well. I dated a short guy and couldn't do it do I dumped him. Not just for that reason tho but that was mostly what it was. Then I met my boyfriend and he's 5"11 and I'm 5"3 lol so ita perfect. Iguess Ts sorta a dominant thing
I don't think its a deal breaker but being kind of short too I have never had that problem but I guess girls like to feel protected almost and as society views it you need a big strong man to protect you! Not saying anything against you! Height is just a pointless physical attribute and I don't think girls should reject anyone because of their height! I think you could have a chance with her it just depends on how much she cares about height, for some girls its a big thing, others its not!
I'm pretty tall for a girl, where I live.. 172cm (5.64 foot ? XD) and I feel down because of that. yes, there are plenty of guys my height, few taller.. but I'm most attracted to guys that happen to be a bit shorter than me (1-5cm).. and I just go 'oh well.. I wish I was shorter!' because I don't know if it's a deal breaker for them. yes, it feels a bit weird for me also, but that's because of what we're used to see. Height is not important for me.. hehe who knows, maybe the guy I'm interested in thinks like you ! xD good luck
I don't think we have anything to worry about man, I'm also 5'7 and its fine. I do understand where you are coming from though, I was told by a friend of mine that he overheard a girl talk about me and say I was cute and that she wished I was just a little taller and I would be perfect. Did it hurt? Sure, just a little but she's not the only woman out there.
Besides take for example T.I is around 5'7-5'9 (depending on the source you go too) so that puts him below the national average but girls still practically fall over for the guy. Its all about the face and personality man.
