Is 5ft 9 considered short for men?

I like a guy that I think is short, something tells me he's not actually 5ft 9 by the way, they exaggerate their heights online, and are usually shorter in real life. I don't want a short man sorry, too much baggage, plus I'm pretty. Never date a man who's likely to think you can do better, his insecurities will overpower your willingness to settle.

  • always lower 3 centimeters or 1.5 inch from every estimation a man gives you.
    for example: im 6'3
    (-:
    this rule is very populat by the way...
    it fits men who talk about their phallus as well.
    furthermore, it fits women who drive and trying to park, but in their case its 3 meters rule, since they always think they got 3 meters of space on each side of the car...

  • "Troooooll in the dungeeeeeeon!"

    Oh well, even though you're a troll, I'll answer honestly because "Hey, why not?" And it might answer the question for someone who's honestly curious about if __________ is considered short.

    Is 5'9 short? Depends on your culture and where you live. If you're 6 foot, and you hang out with people who are 5'5 to 5'8 enough makes you tall. Hang out with much taller people, and you are short.

    The average: 5'10 for African American or Caucasain males in the US. 5'8 for Latino or Hispanic, and Asian males in the US. In Mexico, 5'9 is really tall, as I believe the average for males is 5'5.

    Why anyone particularly cares, though, is a little silly, because so many people are talking about "I don't want no short babies!" Even if the man is tall doesn't mean those genes will happen with their kid... and it will take ages for anyone to find out if the kid is tall or short on average as it is. Big or tall babies will not always end up being a tall adult. A short 10 year old may not always end up being a short adult... the growth spurt didn't happen... yet.

    Personally, while I'm shorter than average, I don't think any guys really notice unless it's a huge difference and they're not used to it. But at least they don't say anything. If girls are talking crap about my height, I have no idea. They probably are, but they're probably picking on any other detail too, if they're talking about me at all. But I'm not going to make it an issue. I'm short, but that doesn't define me. And being short never created much baggage. Other things did. I've not met too many short people who had a lot of baggage just because they were short (minus friends who have dwarfism). I've met tall guys with baggage. And tall guys with little to no baggage. Same with short guys. and girls.

    • I'm not trolling, but ok.

  • my height is that much, 175cm right? I don't know if that's short/normal/tall. i think nba player can go up to 2,1m or more.
    ... have you consider your heels? maybe that's the reason you feel that he is short. heels I don't know why woman love them... every time i saw my sister using it. i love to try to kick it when he walk in front of me. even at my current age.
    i don't think a guy will lie about his height. like it matters at all?

  • If he's actually 5'9" , meaning he wakes in the morning at 5'10" and goes to bed at a solid 5'9" then he is definetly not short , he's average, due to gravity humans normally shrink one inch during the day that is restored during sleep since the spine is horizontally positioned when sleeping at night.
    However if he gets up at 5'9" and goes to 5'8" by the end of the day he's actually 5'8" which is slightly below average/shh

    • Sorry my comment wasn't finished
      He would be a little short at 5'8" but if he's honestly 5'9" he'd never drop below 5'9" at any point during the day.

  • 5'9 isn't short lol
    And if you're pretty sure but you're also between 30-35 lol
    Losing value really fast so try not to be so picky about height hahah cause you might end up alone lol

    • Usually women prefer anyone who is taller than them

    • But is 5ft 9 short? I am 5ft 4 and quite petite. In the past I've dated people who think I can do better, ended horribly so I am trying not to make that mistake anymore. He seems okay but we haven't met yet, plus I think he's shorter, I've seen him on camera.

    • You can't really judge height by looking at the photo. You'll get to know only after meeting him. For me, 5'9 is short for a guy.

  • Guess mines

  • Guys, I should inform you that this person is a troll. Don't take them seriously. It is a male on a female account. Their objective is to make you angry for no reason and to make females look bad. Don't feed into their bullshit. :)
