Height matters on dating sites. LOL. I am 5'10" and when I used to go on dating sites (before I met my girlfriend), the first thing women used to ask me is, "how tall are you?" It was frustrating, especially when a lot of girls want men who are 6 feet or over on dating sites. 5'10" is actually pretty average for men and for women 5 feet to 5'5" is pretty average... HOWEVER it seems like A LOT of women these days are getting taller. LOL. I have meet a lot of women who are 5'8" - 6'0" feet and it's crazy! So, I guess in that regard, I can see why women want a taller man. But... height DOES NOT matter to me. My current girlfriend is my height and she wears heels when we go out. Height shouldn't matter.
I went with "yes" but probably most people would vote "no" in my shoes since I was open to dating girls of any height. But I suspect it would matter in some cases in the relationship, like if a woman is 3 feet tall, we might need to get a special kind of refrigerator where she can reach the freezer and special types of furniture, for example. And if I was with a woman who was, say, 7 feet tall, we might need to get a higher roof than usual and larger door frames so that she doesn't have to duck just to get through a door.
In both extremes, it might impact how we hug and kiss and get affectionate and so on. So I suspect it'd "matter" to me in that it would change some dynamics to the relationship. Of course, I'd be interested in how it mattered, and the way it mattered wouldn't necessarily be something I consider a negative. There are probably pros and cons.
Well, I interpreted "matter" like, "Does it matter what type of food you eat for dinner today?" And I'd say, "yes", but I'm not a picky eater. I'm open to all sorts. It's like it would matter whether I ate Indian food or Italian, but I like both, and I'd be open to either today. But it would matter in the sense that I wouldn't assume the same kind of experience for both.
... like I'm not a picky eater but how things taste matter to me. Nutrition matters to me. But I'm just not picky because I like a very, very wide range of tastes.
... actually, that's a mistake lots of people make about me because I'm not so picky. Like even my wife gets confused because I can love, say, the most gourmet 7-course French cuisine, but I also love a McDonald's cheeseburger. And she has asked me in the past when I ate McDs like, "Doesn't it matter to you how things taste?" And I say, "Of course! I just like the way this tastes as well."
Yes, height is an important factor. I've always found myself attracted to guys that are taller than me. I just can't help it. I'm not implying that short guys are any less attractive. All I'm saying is that all the guys I've dated or found myself even remotely interested in, have been taller than me or at least of my same height, but not any shorter.
Nope. I don't give a flying fuck about it. Don't get me wrong, I obviously care about looks like everyone else. I love guys looking like male models with those sharp jaws and muscled bodies - that's what I care about. But height? I seriously don't care. I want my man to have a hot face and body. Literally any height is fine with me
I prefer girls that are my height or taller. Talker girls have always came off as more of a challenge and goddess like. I’m 5’4 so when I’m dating a girl who’s 5’7-5’9 it’s a huge confidence boost since most girls want a taller guy. I like the chase. Taller girls also usually have bigger butts without the excess fat. I’ve always been more sexually attracted to tall and lanky or athletic girls. It’s sexy to me.I will date girls who aren’t much taller or close to my height. Girls who are shorter I sometimes date but I usually go for the giants. Height plays a factor in physical attraction but it’s not a dealbreaker. If my future wife is my height or shorter it wouldn’t matter. I have no idea who I’ll end up falling for.
Having a girl that's taller than me might be a little odd, but I believe that in relationships the thing that stands over any other concerns is how well you fit together emotionally, mind-to-mind. So, if that works out, then why should I care about her body height? That's way too superficial.
To an extent. I wouldn't date a woman taller than me but I also wouldn't date a midget. I like 5'4" but would go as high as 5'8" and as low as 5' if I liked her enough. I've found that height is much more important to woman than it is to men with women preferring above average guys. Guys, as a whole, have no such bias.
To an extent. I don't want a giant or a dwarf, but I certainly wouldn't mind a short guy. My preferred range is between 5'4" to 6'0". I personally wouldn't like anything beyond that but I'm still open to someone nice beyond that range. No one said that someone has to have everything of your preference to be your partner.
while i prefer to be taller and gf's much shorter I base my relationship choices on personality, if they are shorter or taller and have a great personality and we click then I'm happy if they are shorter and great personality then bonus :)
Yes. He doesn’t have to be really tall but he has to be taller than me. I’m 5’5.5 and I’ve liked guys that are only 5’7. I personally care about height but I don’t think it’s weird for people that don’t. I don’t think a couple with a girl taller than the guy looks weird but I personally wouldn’t do it myself because that’s just my preference.
Yes.Im 5'8. Lucky I never had to wavier on that. I just will never date a guy shorter to me. MAjor turn off to me. And I would find it weird and uncomfortable.Just like there guys who dont date girls taller than them. Not sure why being a female make me more shallow than the other gender. It what Im told though.the argument ou can be missing out on whatever is like saying there only one guy ou there. Um, that dumb. we come across many lovers. They all come in different sizes.
the four male thumbs prove my point about the angry short man too taking everything personally. I mean they really do.*shrug*
I'm not in denial, yes it matters. I'm a tall girl and despite all the short guys complaining about how no one cares about them, the short ones I've dated have been super insecure about their height and it wasn't worth it because neither of our heights were going to change and I'll not go flat shoed for the rest of my life for someone's ego. Tall guys are my jam. I don't have to awkwardly hug or kiss them and you get those envy looks as two tall giraffes saunter into a room arm in arm. Love it.
I get your point but we are all insecure about shy, a woman can be insecure about the size of her breasts or her lips, a guy can be insecure about his height or his dick size or the size of his wallet. To be honest, it’s usually the taller guys I’ve come across who had really bad insecurities that they are not thankful even for the physical traits god blessed them with. I’m 5’8 and I don’t care if people point at me and say eww he’s short! That just shows their insecurity to mock others.
About stuff* not shy
@The6ix Oh I'd venture to say 90% of the population is insecure about something, but if someone you're with loves or likes you for who you are, you've got to start seeing that through their eyes instead of just harp on the same old same old. You don't want to be with someone who talks about how small their boobs are at every opportunity or someone who's going to put themselves down all the time. It's exhausting because you're left there always trying to massage that ego. No thanks. I know what I like and I'm not about to apologize for that because doing so is ridiculous. You can like tall or short or whatever and not treat others like dirt in the process.
I prefer my partner to be taller than me. And well, since I'm such a shortie (1.55 m /5'0") I guess my request is easy to fulfill :D
It matters to me in the sense that I wouldn’t prefer to date a guy that’s shorter than me, but that doesn’t mean I prefer that there be like an entire foot in our height difference either. I’d just like him to be taller than me, but not any taller than like 6’0.
Huh, a lot of women say that a man needs to be taller than 6', so as a man hearing a woman say no taller than 6' blows my mind.
Kinda? Like if the guy is tall it's pretty attractive and especially since I'm tall myself but I'm also fine with dating a guy a bit shorter than me too. There is a point tho where it's weird for me if he's a lot shorter than me though.
To me height matters a lot, I prefer really short Girls over tall Girls (I'm 5'11 or 180cm). My ideal length for a girl is about 5'1 or 155-160cm) even though I have never dated a girl that short so far.
For a guy who’s 5’8 I’ve played sports bigger and stronger then me and I don’t back down, I enjoy it, I play well. Bruce Lee was 5’8 and he could kick some major ass. Robert Downey Jr, Tom Holland, Tom Cruise and many other good looking guys out there are under 5’10. Can you women stop with the height thing, I mean that’s like me saying a girl justifies herself with huge boobs...*smh* come on now.
I'm 6ft tall, and I've almost exclusively dated guys who are shorter than me. Not crazy shorter but like 5'10" -5'9" . I always have found that guys who are shorter are usually kinder and I think the confidence they have in dating a taller girl is pretty cool. But it does sometimes bother me, just because I worry I look huge compared to them. As a woman I feel like I should be the smaller, more delicate one in the relationship.
One of my friends was 5'7" and his girlfriend was 6'2". Oddly, they NEVER appeared awkward, but he was SUPER confident and she was rather demure!
I love small girls😂. But, I would date a tall girl😊. Just if the tall girls wants a shorter date😂 if they're 6'0 and above. Tall girls are nice 😆
I'm tall so no. I am attracted to short girls though.
Yeah it does because I don't want to be completely be towering over the guy I'm dating. I've done it before and it's just a weird experience and I didn't enjoy it. I usually just go after guys like around 5'11 or taller for those reasons.
Height doesn't matter to me. My ex was over 6 foot tall and I was just over 5 foot and it didn't matter to me. It was the time that we spent with each other that mattered more to us and the personalities
No, I'll date anyone of any height so long as they aren't someone I don't want to deal with. Basically, they just have to not be a fcking idiot or a total asshole.
I'm 5'10, so tall for a girl pretty much everywhere. Ideally for me guys would be at a good height for kissing. If he's too short then I'd have to bend down. If he's too tall I'd have to bend down. There also is a factor of heels, I don't want to tower over them heels or no heels. So a bit taller then me is ideal, but it doesn't really matter too much.
I'm tall (6'1") so I've always wanted a tall girl (5'6"-5'10") I just like the feeling of closeness between your faces when you're standing together better
I would feel weird dating someone shorter but otherwise no, I don't get girls who are like 5'2 and reject guys who are 5'7 because they are "not tall". Like what?
I never really cared but I dated a guy that was 6’3 and It was very sexy to have him tower over me. But I’m missionary it was weird cause there was so much space between us as opposed to someone who is close to my height where he can kind of lie on top and our faces align and we can kiss and cuddle and stuff
Yes it does to me I want a guy who’s taller than me and has good height for when I also wear heels. I’m 5 ft 3 and would also like to stand on my tippy toes maybe when I lean in for a kiss. I like it when guys are usually 6 ft at least and the most I’d like a guy to be is 6”3 maybe although I have been attracted to even taller
Wow with as short as you are you wouldn't date a guy under 6 feet?
@mr_mxy I still would but I prefer not to only bc of when I wear heels. My heels are usually like up to 3 in Mac and I become too tall still.
So in heels you go from 5 3 to 5 6? I dont see why that becomes an issue if you are dating a guy who is 5 8 or 5 10.
@mr_mxy yeah I don’t like the height being that close and.. ? I still wouldn’t mind but like I said I prefer someone taller
I’m taller than most guys where I live or places I go out to when I have heels and sometimes when I don’t. I have long legs so with heels it does make a difference I might seem like the same exact height basically
I suppose I can respect that. I'm pretty average when it comes to height though do wish I was taller.
@mr_mxy how tall are you? Honestly I really don’t mind 5”8 or 5”10 but just bc of that. That’s the only reason and thanks for being able to respect that. That’s cool that you do
Somewhere around 5"9 give or take a couple cm.People have preferences. It's when people belittle and shame in favor of their preferences that I get frustrated. Like when some claim a group is sexually superior to another or other aspects like that.
@mr_mxy oh yeah I get what you mean that’s dumb and to me for a guy you still have good height. I actually think that I wouldn’t mind if someone was 5”9 even more know to come to it🤔that close to still being 6 ft tall
People should never be belittled or shamed for their height it’s messed up and unnecessary
Height among other things. People who belittle others in order to justify a preference are just terrible in general. It's one of the big reasons iv veen so insecure about dating in the first place.
@mr_mxy wow omg no way, never care or think about others opinions as much as you can and keep practicing it until you see it yourself. I’m sure that there lots of girls who would still go for you and will love your height. There’s a lot of shorter girls then there is tall
"Muh heels!"You can quit it with the Potemkin village. We all know that's an excuse, and a shitty one at that.
@ForbesMagazine wow someone’s ego/pride needs to stop getting to them or whatever issue they have. Heels was more of an excuse for you to just make a comment with what you got bruised for
There are 3 things in this world that will men are insecure about. Height, wallet, dick size. It's always one of these and for the very unfortunate all 3.
I didn't say anything about my height, I just hate people who pussyfoot.
@mr_mxy True besides looks or something sometimes and I hope you aren’t insecure about your height anymore bc of others or take what I responded back to the other commentator towards you
@ForbesMagazine you didn’t have to, it’s obvious and take your hate speech else where it’s not like I’m the one who did anything to you...
@ForbesMagazine also that last word isn’t even actually a word lol
My insecurity runs deep and for me it's more than just height. Hell I got over my height issues a while ago. Since than I fed my insecurity in another way. However I appreciate the kind words.
www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pussyfootlolYou're the one engaging in physical discrimination, if anyone is spewing hate speech it's you. Stop pretending you have virtue when you don't, that's my problem with you.
@ForbesMagazine wow so it’s an actual word. Cool story I still don’t care what you have to say I hav Everett things to do with my life then to troll. I’m not the one with hate speech when you’re commenting on my question instead of keeping to yourself. ✌️
>"I put my opinion on a public forum for strangers to see, and if you respond to it and call me out it's hate speech."This is a joke.
@ForbesMagazine keep trolling I can care less. You are joke
Yes. I prefer shorter girls. I'm a tall guy and I have always been attracted to girls who ate 5' to 5'4". Just a personal preference but I believe in the whole opposites attract thing.
Yep. I kinda have a head top fetish and it's hard for me to see it if she's taller than me.
It doesn't matter how short she is as long as she is shorter than me
My girlfriend is about 4ft10 to 5ft1 and it doesn't effect our relationship
Other people's height doesn't matter to me, but mine does. I'm 5'5"
i personally am not attracted to short girls. i find it off-putting to look down at them when were talking. I dont mind a couple inches though
Height doesn't matter in a relationship to me but the the individuals themselves. Yeah, if the guy is tall it's a bonus but in the end it isn't the most important thing in the world.
Height doesn't matter to me in girl , i would date a girl of any height as long as she doesn't mind dating a guy whose 5'9" - 5 '10"
Not really. The ideal height is so that the top of her head is just under my chin if we're both flat-footed, but I'm not picky... :)
Not really.. if I’m attracted to someone that’s all that matters.. my boyfriends 6’1 and I’m barely 5ft.. most people are taller than me anyways so it’s not really that hard for me to get guys..😂
I voted yes.I am a tall girl, 5'11/180cm and slim/skinny build.I wear heels quite a lot, so im usally around 6'3-6'4/190+cmI have dated guys between 5'7/170cm and 194/6'3. I dont care, but the guy i date has to be confident to have a tall woman next to him.Currently dating a 6'2/188cm guy. He wants me to stand up straight and loves my heigt
It doesn't matter to me beyond my partner just being shorter than I am, by comparison. By that I mean, I'm no more or less likely to date a girl who is 5'0 than one who is 5'1, because both are significantly shorter than me anyway.
No, but I wouldn't want a girl bigger than me.I'm 6'0", 220 lb. She's 4'5", 86 lb (and older than me). I'd figure it out.
Has she ever kicked your balls? ;-)
@standardguy. Now why would she want to do that?
Lol of course she would be Asian lol
Not particularly, no.I do tend to gravitate towards short women, but it's not really an issue, either way. I've dated tall women and short women, and their height never really crossed my mind.
Not really... unless he’s under 5 ft then I might get uncomfortable. I’m 5’4
I think all men want a female that’s shorter, And all women want a man that’s taller, It’s like femininity and manly, it’s what we’re attracted to I think.
I like taller girls
As long as they ain't super tall or midgets I am gucci.. Lol..
Yes. If she is VERY tall, it can become a problem but other than that... I don't see much of a problem.
Not in the slightest, I wouldn't even mind dating a girl who's taller than me (which isn't a common sight at 6'2"). Short girls are fine too
If I'm picking people for a basketball team, sure.For dating, not so much. As long as she isn't too extreme, like 4'6 or 7'1.
Everyone has preferences and wants, but looks aren’t a need for me if their health is important to them.
It's a preference, I like tall women but as long as you tick enough other areas then I can compromise.
I won't date anyone shorter than 5'0. As for taller than I am (190cm), I've never seen a girl like that in my country.
No it doesn't, but because I'm tall the average female is short in comparison, so I do tend to be more attracted to taller girls, but that's not going to determine who I will date.
Not really. But that's probably because I'm happy with my height.
Yes, max height for a girl I'd date is 5 foot 5 inches
Yeah, I'm 6'2 so as long as she's not taller than me it's all good lol
At 5'4", height mattering would drastically decrease the number of hot girls I could date.
Yes as 4ft 8 I need someone who can reach high shelves.
And what happens when your spawn grows up to 5'5? Women like you are responsible for short men in the first place.
For so reason I'm attracted to short girls I dont know cause I'm very tall
I prefer her to be between zero and 2 inches shorter. But it's a minor thing
I have a preference for smaller girls, but in the end I don't care much.
Well, I chose no because it’s not horrible if a guy isn’t 6’4’ while I’m 5’3, I’d like to be able to kiss him, without a step stool..😭
I'm a li'l petite woman who likes a partner taller than me but not too tall so he doesn't hurt his back.
Nope not at all I'm 6 foot and generally I'll like almost any one as long as they are a good person and we share some common interests
I like when a person had confidence. Whether someone is tall or vertically declined their presence can be huge and radiate through a room!
Yes, it really does. I've always liked tall men. 6''2 being my favorite cause its not short and not too tall. I have no desire to date a guy my height (5'4) or shorter. But i might date a guy who is 5'9 or 5'10 if i really like him.
