Every other day on GaG, a guy will ask, "should my height matter?" "Can I date a girl taller than me?" "I'm short, will I ever be able to date?" "Why is height so important to girls?" Oh man, it just goes on and on and on. Height does matter...in the sense that so does everything else about you when it comes to someone choosing whether to date you or not date you.
Yeah, I know, but isn't that so superficial? YES! When you don't know anything about another person, everything you like about them is superficial and based on assumptions. You can't know a thing about a person until you actually talk to them and get to know the real them, which of course presents a problem if a girl thinks your height is something they simply do not prefer...and it is a preference like beard or no beard, or blue eyes or brown, or muscles or no big muscles. It's ridiculous how some people in the dating game think that looks should play no part in the process. Do you not have eyes? Do you not find certain things more attractive to you than others? It's a basic tenet of being a human being.
Looks are how we've always since the dawn of mankind, started the process of becoming involved with someone. When we see something we like, we're encouraged to make the effort to know more so it stands to reason that what we see should appeal to us.
Guys...girls....we are all superficial to some degree whether it's your height, or your boob size, or your weight, or your hair. We want what we want and we like what we like; the trick is to find someone who likes what you've got going on.
And don't for a minute start in on how life is so unfair or unfair to you and how women should change their attitudes as if guys don't also have preferences in what they personally want in a woman. Life is unfair to everyone! Get over it! I'm a tall woman who finds it difficult to date sometimes due to her height. Do I feel it sucks from time to time, have I been bullied and teased because of my height, hell yeah, of course, but rather than blame the world for it or feel sorry for myself, I just embrace it, and if you don't want to date me because of my height, than why, no matter how great you might be, would I want to date someone who doesn't like all of me?
Do a lot of women "prefer" a taller guy, yes. You didn't need to read a drop of this to know that about the world, but that isn't all women. Some don't care as long as you appeal to them for whatever reason. If you are a short guy, can you date, yes you can. Get out of the pity party mode, if that's your modus operandi, and go out there and go after what you want. It might not be easy, it might suck a lot of the time, but no matter what you think is holding you back from landing the one, you aren't going to find what you're looking for locked in your room all day crying about it. Also, height is not going to change and the world is not going to change what's going on to suit you. It is what it is, so embrace what you've got and work with it.
