not all girls do that. I'm 5'7" and I'm head over heels(or head over head in this case) for a guy whose at least 3 inches shorter. but id date a guy if he was 5'6".all though I do know a lot of girls do that...but there is still girls who will date a shorter guy! or you could just date a girl shorter than you maybe, because some girls don't need a really tall guy, just one taller than them. plus guys are always going for petite girls, which is a problem at my age(im a freshman) because guys aren't full grown yet. your not less of a man...oh and I have a question for you, do guys care if a girl is taller or like a year older?
No it doesn't make you less of a man. Don't worry about it. Some girls, like myself happen to be really tall and we just prefer guys our height or taller. Guys are the same, I've met more than one that told me I was too tall.
It has evolutionary roots and it's also the social and cultural norm. I know it's not easy being on the wrong end of what society deems "normal". Believe me, people stare and I've had my fair share of guys tell me they'd date me but only if I was about half a foot shorter. But those are the kinds of people you wouldn't want to date anyway, right? At least there's still hope in the many people who do look past height. :)
Well being a girl that is 5'8 I find it less attractive because it makes me feel older and more manly if I have to be the one to bend down and kiss/hug. It's like this idea that is engraved into our minds much like how guys like boobs/butt, I like guys my height or taller, it's just how I am. I feel to awkward dating shorter. It also leads to the feeling of being safe and better taken care of. But some girls don't mind, you just need to find the one that accepts you for you.
First off... I could fill a page with the things guys discriminate against women for. I guess people like what they like. Some girls associate it with masculinity the same way some guys associate large breasts with femininity. Unfortunately girls and guys miss out on someone potentially perfect for them based on a physical attribute. Fair or not that's just the way it is.
However, some don't really care. I'm 5'5" and my guy is 5'7". He is confident and that's so sexy. If I want to wear stiletto heels I do, and yes I'm taller. He doesn't care if I'm taller in heels so why should I? I think that shows he has confidence and doesn't care about his height. He said he did when he was in high school, but he had to learn not to care. I'll add this, something you probably already know,sex with someone close to your height lines things up in a great way! Girls don't know what they're missing! :-)
Most women tend to go for the taller guys; there's no doubt about that. However, that doesn't mean you're dead in the water. My advice would be to make up for it with personality. One of my good friends is 5'6"; even though he's much older and shorter than I am, women chase him all the time. The main reason is because he's a confident, outgoing and fun guy.
You'd be best off not worrying about it. Complaining about it will only make it worse. Sure, some girls will dismiss you the second they see you because of your height, but honestly, it's for the better. Think of it this way: If a girl can't see past your height, she's not what you're looking for anyway.
yeah back in the day it was correlated with being a good leader etc. but nowadays it doesn't really matter, its one of those things we just haven't evolved out of yet, but you can still get it man I'm 5'7 and I still smash all the time so g'luck
People are just into what they're into man. Girls want someone who is going to be protective and the alpha figure of their family, just like most men wouldn't date a girl who is 6'1". It all goes back to evolution. A lot of women will see past height though. Danny Devito got married sooooo..
