Does height matter, girls?

I'm 5'8" and I'm really conscious about my height. I've been bodybuilding for 2 years and I have a really fit body (with 4% body fat), but it doesn't change the fact I'm insecure about my height.

  • There's nothing wrong with that height at all! In fact I find it kind of perfect, girls like me that are small like 5'1, don't want a guy tha s too tall. It way took hard to kiss a guy that way, you're definitely a good height. ;-)

  • Of course being with a guy who is taller is preferred, but not necessary. I say that being 5'10 myself, so of course my options are rather limited. However, I am seeing a guy who is around 5'7-5'8 at the moment, so as long as you're a great guy and there's chemistry, height doesn't matter.

    Which leads to the question if you could find yourself being into a girl who's taller than 5'8?

  • In my opinion, being in shape is way better than height in my opinion, it shows that you take pride in yourself and keeping in shape. For me, height doesn't matter, there are other things that are more important, personality being one... and be loud and proud, it's okay to not be massively tall, be confident about yourself and don't let it bother you okay? We all have things that we wish we could change about ourselves.

  • No...it doesn't matter to me...my Boyfriend is 5'8" (even though his license claims 5'10")...sometimes I'm taller than him when I wear tall heels...I have women hear that they like men to be a certain height...but I think there is much more to a person than that. Flaunt what you've got...I can understand though...I've been pretty conscious about my height as I'm only about 5'4".

  • Not at all! but what does matter is your insecurity about your height. its not attractive that a man who is decently tall and as you say pretty built thinks he's not good enough.. any girl would be lucky to have you plus most girls are short anyway

  • you're totally fine. You're not 6', but you're just 2" short. I'm 5'3", so you'd still be fine according to my standards. Unless you're going for girls who are 6' tall...

    Just be happy you're not that guy I saw in the club a couple of years ago, He was shorter than me, I think he's just 5'1". Awesome self-confidence though. Took over the dance floor...lol

  • I hate when girls want a guy taller than them. I mean I know that's something MRA trash usually say but like. Ugh it makes me so mad. It's literally like, every straight girl, every single one. And the reason is they always want to feel ~protected~ by men. Makes me sick. Class traitors, every one

  • I don't think 5'8 is short,though it isn't consider as tall.You still have so many options in dating. You can date a lot of girls from the height between 5'-5'6.If you were 5'5 then I guess you have to worry :O

  • its not extremely important to me but I prefer the guy to be taller than me - 6ft is ideal I'm 5ft 4" so 5ft 8 would be fine too. You're not short don't worry

  • I know I want a taller man...I'm 5ft2, if the guy was smaller than me or my size, we'd look like minions...

    Honestly, you're tall, a friend of mine who's 5ft7 would find you tall enough.

    The deal breaker for me would be the bodybuilding part, I don't find it attractive and I don't like when men spend their time at the gym...just my opinion.

  • It depends on the girl, to me it really doesn't matter, I'm 5'9 and I currently like a guy that's about 5'6. Some girls will go for one or the other it really just matters how they think about height, me being a tall girl makes me options pretty limited at times so I've learned to not let height be a factor on if I date someone or not.

  • I'm 5'4" and I've dated guys exactly my height, it doesn't really matter as long as you're a bit taller than her or the same height. Also, the muscles might distract from the fact that you're not as tall as some guys, but muscles are much more appreciated than height. :)

  • 5'8" is fine... you're just on the limit.. it beats being 5'6"-5'7"

    wear long spiky hair and platformed shoes! to appear longer! :D

    haha just kidding. You're fine for most girls, unless you're aiming to attract taller girls then your choices my be limited because most girls prefer guys who are at least slightly taller.

  • no. 5'8 is the perfect height but any height is fine. what matters is character, voice and face.

  • Height matters to certain people, but it doesn't matter to others. I have seen some reallllyyyy short guys with girls that tower over them.

    To me, as long as the guy I'm dating is my height or taller when I wear heels, then I'm fine with it. Luckily, I'm 5'2'' so that gives me a lot of options, haha.

  • I think you aren't that short, I'm 5'8 and most girls I know are a few inches shorter than I am which leaves you with lots of girls to pick from, even if they prefer taller guys :)

  • For me, yeah it matters. I like very tall guys, even though I'm quite tall myself(5'7 1/2'') and I think 5'8'' is short, no offence. I would rather have a 6'4'' guy but not that muscular then a 5'8'' guy but very muscular.

  • Height matters to some people in different ways. Some girls like towering men, some like em really runty. It just boils down to personal taste. But it is purely aesthetic - women like a brain and a personality too!

  • I'm 5"4 so I wouldn't care haha I don't like hulking muscles though and being too muscly when you are sort of short can make you look shorter where as slim guys appear taller.

  • Like someone else said... height only matters to some people. Mostly I think women want their man to be a little taller so luckily for you there are plenty of short women. I happen to be 5'6 and 5'11 in heels. I only date men who are 6'2 or taller. My current guy is 6'4

  • It does matter to girls generally speaking. People who answer on this website are not a fair representation of society unfortunately. So either if girls say it does or it doesn't matter cannot be reliable as you are merely obtaining opinions from around 20 people who are on the internet. By no means, can you base your opinion on the matter from this many people.

  • I'm not a girl but I can confidently say that height and looks don't matter. The fact that you're insecure about it is what will turn off the ladies.

  • For the most part it doesn't.

    It also doesn't help to be insecure about something you can't change.
