I absolutely love my height. It bothers me that I rarely get approached by tall guys (which I love) and seem to get the most attention from shorter guys...
It is natural. Anyone is attracted in the first look to someone who is around their height and to be obvious people are very specific about it.5'2'' guy or either a 5'5'' guy would naturally prefer a girl shorter than his height and 5'4'' is just perfect. But as you tend to gain height, you sure would get more attention from other tall guys. You see its just that tall guys rather go for a girl about their height. I won't be amazed if a 5'7'' guy would actually be more attracted to a girl who is taller than you , still exceptions exist. Attention depends upon the beholders and one cannot do anything about it.
Every tall guy I know prefers shorter girls. At least the ones I know. It makes them feel more "manly".
Then why short guy prefer you? Why don't they prefer shorter girls than themselves? It has nothing to do with manity I guess.
I don't think you understood my question. In my description I stated that I tend to get approached by guys who are classified as short. The term short is subjective, but most people would agree that any guy below 5'9 is in fact short. The guys I get approached by are shorter than 5'9. That has no correlation to tall guys wanting to date short girls in order to feel "manly".
I don't think so short is used to as to compare two thing. Any guy below 5'9" is short? Hard to believe what are you trying to validate. I mean you are just setting criterion on a person to actually cross that mark so that you consider him tall? In other words, your question is off the track. Seriously? Never mind. Can't object someone's preferences.
Let's put it in a better way. You are bothered since you are not approached by tall guys. the so called above5'9". Why dont you approach them? Since you are the one attracted to them not they.

Sadly even short girls prefer tall guys...
Are you implying that short guys are ugly? lol People tell me that I'm good-looking and I have been approached by cute tall guys. It's just that most of the time when I go out, more short guys approach me than tall.
Plus hot girls get approached by all kinds of guys even short lol.
No, I'm saying that most girls don't want short guys, so short guys would avoid going for hot girls (since they have more options) cause they know they'll get rejected. So they go for the ugly girls cause they don't have much options, ergo, they have more chances of not being rejected.
You'd be surprised at how many confident guys there are out there who have the balls to chase the hottest girls even when they know they'll probably get rejected.
I know there are a lot, and I know there are many short guys among them (I know of some), but there are also many who don't wanna get rejected and go for the easy option.
I kind of wish I was approached by more taller guys though...
Hmm, I would assume it's because most guys want to be taller than their girlfriend. Short guys obviously have less women to choose from, if that's their goal. So they're going to after a somewhat short girl, like yourself. As for the guys who are actually shorter than you; it's probably about the same reasoning, but once you get a guy below 5'4", I would imagine it becomes difficult for them to find an even shorter girl. So they try to find someone who has the least amount of height on them.My theories, anyway.
But, you're a guy...
Yeah, but I also find shorter girls attractive, so chances are I'd find you attractive...
You're a tall guy and I like tall guys. My problem is that the only guys who approach me are short guys...
Hmmm, so taller guys are less likely to have the confidence to approach you? That's sad...
It kind of does especially if you prefer taller guys. Short is anything shorter than 5'9. At least that's what I define it to be.
Well 5'9 is fairly average. I understand if you like tall guys but there's more to a person than that.
And I'm not disagreeing with that. However, physical attraction is very important. Every one likes something different. Some people like chocolate ice cream, others like vanilla. I happen to like tall guys because that's just what I'm attracted to.
Fair enough I suppose. As to why you're being approached by them. Maybe you give off a very friendly vibe. Short guys might feel intimidated cause they know many women share your feelings about short guys and they think you wouldn't not pick them based off their height. But honestly I'm not sure.
