Tall men are more attractive. Get over it.
But I see tons of short men walking around with girlfriends every day, so I'd say, in reality, it's hardly an issue.
Because they don't find it as attractive as a tall guy, the same the general public doesn't regard overweight women being as attractive as thinner women.
Sexual dimorphism. Men look for feminine characteristics, women look for male characteristics, which includes being tall. I’ve only ever dated guys over 6ft but that’s actually not by choice just coincidence. I’ve been interested in guys who were 5’4 - 5’7 and they weren’t interested in me.
Women are attracted to what they are attracted to the same way men are attracted to what they are attracted to.
Some women want a tall guy, the same way some men want thin women. I can't tell you how many times I see men complain about women not wanting them but then telling women to get over it or change themselves in order to accepted by the man. This whole " I should be good enough for you, but you have to be good enough for me" type thinking a lot men do is tiresome. I personally don't care that much about height.. i will date guys 5'4 and up. My dad is 5'4 and my mother is 5'7, so short guys do grab attention from women.
I've never been picky about height, but I'm also short myself so it's difficult to relate to the issue.
I think it boils down to feminine vs masculine in some cases. Being the taller party is a masculine tradition or something.
Similar to the body hair dilemma - many men don't want to date women more hairy than them, it's considered masculine.
But I might be completely off the rails. I just think most straight men and women have that innate sense of what's feminine and masculine, and prefer the opposite of what they are themselves.
Lots of exceptions to that of course, I'm not trying to paint things black and white.
I think it's because most girls like to feel protected and dominated. If a guy is taller then he's just more manly looking. That's why I like to have a bit of meat on my guy as well and super skinny guys is a bit of a turn off. There are some girls who like small guys but not that many.
I'm only 5ft 1 though so it's not hard to be taller than me XD Even though I'm so small, I found it hard to be physically attracted to my ex since he was like 5ft 2 or 5ft 3..
I was actually a little unsure about my current boyfriends height at first as well, because he was TOO TALL and I thought we'd look stupid together. My parents still joke that I look like a child next to him, since he's 6ft 3.
I’ve never been picky about height. I mean I’m 5’5 there’s not very many guys out there my age or older who are shorter than me.
I'm not that picky
Why are men so picky about weight in a woman?
Seriously, I don't have enough fingers to count how many times I have witnessed a guy call a woman who wasn't stick-thin (while still in a healthy weight range) fat...
I see you mention a lot that height can't be changed, as if it's unfair for a woman not to give you a chance because of that. Why does it matter that it can't be changed? Why do you expect then to change their preferences for you?
If someone was ugly and they couldn't change that either, would you all of a sudden go "ah I see ok I'll date you then"?
Why do you expect the dating game to be fair?
Most women want a man that is of greater stature than they. It comes from a bazillion years of biological programming - from cave man days where she chose the best suitor to protect her and her offspring from sabertooth tiger and roaming tribesmen. :)
If you're under 5-8 your best bet is to find a sweet girl your height or shorter. The tall girls are going to be hit or miss at best. It has NOTHING to do with 'quality'.
It's like asking why some guys like blonds, some brunettes. Or big tits or little. They're preferences, and you cannot negotiate attraction or desire.
Were talking about women who are overweight who can lose some weight. It can be fixed.
Because they're shallow and immature.
Fat people need to work out. Short people need to work out. In general, being fit is attractive, and that is a counter to this whole argument going on down in this comment section.
(Feed me some hate, I want to hear how working out is bad for you.)
No one cares.
Women are more judgmental about looks than men
It's just one of those things, partially engrained as a survival instinct, partially dominance, etc.
Kind of like why do men tend to gravitate towards busty women? There isn't any advantage to larger breasts, and often many disadvantages. That doesn't change the fact that, by and large, men prefer larger breasts. Just part of nature.
