Most Helpful Opinions
1. Men can't control their height.
2. 95% of the time women don't actually care about a set number, they just care that they're shorter than their man.
3. Women are absolutely ridiculous with their standards and make their decisions about cognitive attraction based on what their peer group defines as attractive.
4. Nobody is complaining about women that want to date a man taller than them, that's the norm.
5. Men want to date women shorter than them.
6. Women are full of shit on so many of their criteria there's no way for most men, and nearly all inexperienced men, to determine which qualifiers are essential and which ones are shit tests.
7. Even the women that know what they want, don't know what they want.
8. Reread everything stated above.
9. Reread everything stated above 4 more times.
10. Reread everything stated above until you internalize it and realize that you need to stop looking checklists of qualifications and that you just need to find a good guy that makes you happy. Happiness isn't formulaic, and if women keep pushing men away, there's going to be a hard shift where a vast majority of men start taking pride women that start to crash and burn by the time they hit 40.
When both sexes aren't being reasonably and adequately satisfied you'll always have one side working to steal their satisfaction from the other. If you want to stop feeling so empty, start treating men like they're more than just a means to a better future for you. Realize that it's not a one way transaction in relationships where you get to be comfortable while your man works himself to death; you have to work to make it last.518
I don’t agree, I think this is just your experience
As a short female. I’d say the opposite from my experience.
taller men have always been interested in me and shorter men always wanted taller women. I think coz the shorter men almost wanted a taller woman to compensate for their lack of height. Sort of like why a shorter woman wants a taller man to compensate for her lack of height.
i think the issue is because at 5 4 you are neither tall or short. So a shorter guy usually wants a tall or short woman. Because a tall woman gives him a sense of confidence as he gets height by proxy and a short woman gives him confidence by feeling dominant.
I definitely think you don’t need to analyse this. At 5 4 you shouldn’t have any issue with guys because of your height. It’s a normal height. People like normal in general.
It might be because of other physical attributes that are causing the issue.0
Where the hell do you live where someone would find a 5'4 girl too tall O-O
I'm 5'6 and nobody ever told me I was too tall never, it sound like a joke.
And they do cause they're bitter women reject them for their appearance (something they cannot change) but then they're hypocrite cause even the ugliest of men refuse to date a too tall woman or a fat girl or an ugly girl so really they're just bitter hypocrite with no sense of reality.28
What Girls & Guys Said
In what world or universe is a 5'4 woman tall. They're idiots. Im 5'4 myself and I've never once viewed a woman my height as tall whatsoever. Not that short either it's medium height for a woman. Just go for guys that are like 5'9 and above. As a short man myself I can assure you those short men represent us really bad and it's toxic. I could care less about a woman's height. I've seen an attractive woman of every height idgaf. If I like how a woman looks she can be 10 inches taller than me and idc she'll still be attractive. Most guys think the same just move onto someone. else. I'm sure even some guys my height won't even care either, you're just meeting shitty dudes.0
The answer is quite simple. The height cannot be changed. So if a man is short, he stays low.
Low men have an inferiority complex called the Napoleon complex.
However, this complex does not fall into the category of mental disorders, but the subjects who are afflicted by it are believed to tend to compensate for their stature with behaviors considered negative, such as aggression or jealousy.
In any case, it must be specified that the name of this syndrome refers to a false historical myth: Napoleon was in fact about 169 cm (5'54 ") tall in a period when the average height of a Frenchman was 164 cm (5 '38 ").
Women that are too short are not that I like them very much (I am 187cm, 6'15"), they tend to be uncomfortable, it takes a search for proportionality between the two heights from my point of view, a ratio of 1: 1.1.0
Cause we can't control our height that's why, I'm 5'9", I wouldn't consider myself short but clearly I am, I swear 100% of women who say their height preference want a guy over 6', any taller girls like 5'8" and up feel they "need" a man over 6' cause for some reason women feel the need to be the shorter one?🤷♂️
Ypu know the meme about guys o. Tinder always posing with the fish? Yeah well lemon are like that with hight, I'd say easily 8 out of 10 chicks have "if you under 6' swipe left" in there profile.
Then other other side of it women hate men who say no fat chicks, women get pissed when guys are picky about parts of women that they can actually change, we can't change height but are suppose to be fine with that, we mention something within a woman's ability to change and we are monsters? Ok cause that's fair.10
It's hard to say I'm not attracted to short women since I've caught feelings for women 5'3 or 5'4 which is WELL over a foot shorter than me but in general I find I am indeed more attracted to women who at least broach 5'8 and have more in common with them as well. For the record I'm still about a foot taller.
My mother is herself 5'8.0
Tall, now does that mean taller than them, if so then guys would not complain, however if tall means 6 ft. tall or around that age, then some men complain because a fraction of men, meet that criterion which is usually genetic. It's comparable to saying why women complain why men only go for women with natural big breasts, that too is genetic.0
I don't care if she is taller than me, and plays Volleyball, or if she is shorter! It's all about WHO she is, and how we relate, and feel, together!!
Something rather EROTIC, when dating a tall woman, and she is the Big Spoon, and cuddling!! LOL!! :) :)0
Personally I love a girl I am taller than, and I'm 6ft and some inches, and I prefer white ladies but I met a girl who had an irresistible quality. I mean who she is on the inside is golden. More than gold. I fell instantly even though she is almost my height and dark skinned.0
Well of course tall guys don't care how tall a girl is. They can date tall girls and short girls without being told by the girl that they are too short.
You really need this explained to you?🤪
And I don't buy this assertion that guys who are 5 foot 7 told you that your were too tall at 5 for 4.
That didn't happen.0
A "preference" is one thing, but for many women, they'll straight up tell you it's a "deal breaker", which to me is mind blowing. I'd never reject a woman based solely on her height. That seems so ridiculous to me, something they can't control at all that has nothing to do with the person they are, but women think that "he has better genes", which is false also. "Better" in that better chance of her child also being tall, but that is it. Not "better" genes in general. I think a lot of women don't realize that. Unless it's ALL about the safety feeling? Somehow feel more protected? Which is also ridiculous, but feelings don't often make sense lol.21
for the same reason women complain about men preferring big boobs. cause not all men are tall and small men also want a partner. and of course you obsess about women more if you have a harder time finding one. same for girls that can't attract a guy. is it really that hard to empathize with that?17
Taller guys never care about how tall a girl is because most of them are shorter than them. I'm 5'9 and I just prefer girls under my height. I don't really obsess over it. It's just a primitive dominant desire. Just as most girls have their submissive desire for a man that's taller and stronger.0
Who actually thinks 5’4 is too tall? Do you mean too short? Why would an average height guy want a super short girl? I mean if I was already attracted to her maybe but I’d feel like a giant with anyone under 5’4. I think it would be a bit intimidating.14
As of late there's a shrinking list of expectations for women in dating but the same cannot be said for men.
It was the body-positive movement which made men's height woes more mainstream. In an era when men are not allowed any cosmetic preferences, especially an aversion to the obese, there is still a height limit imposed against dating men. This is largely viewed as unfair, as men's height isn't necessarily anything they can control, while body fat is manageable.15
Men will date women shorter (to a point, no midgets) equal height, and taller than them if they can manage it. Women however always seem to want to date men a couple inches taller than them, which to men of equal height to those women seems unfair and petty really. Throw in the fact women artificially increase their height with heels and it just gets downright infuriating0
Guys especially tall guys don't care about height but short guys generally get rejected especially by girls around the same height because the guys are considered too short, so to save themselves from rejection it's easier to just say the girl is too short because she's either gonna just leave the guy for someone hotter and taller or she's gonna reject him. But taller guys have better chances of getting any girl especially if they are really good looking.3
I've never understood why people care about height so much, for both men and women. Like, I've never seen a girl and thought "wow this girl is SO short. That's hot af 😩". That just seems really weird to me.1
I'm 6'3 and I can tell you the reason men complain is because it's kinda true. And I'm not flexing or anything but when I'm out with my shorter friend I'm the one always getting the looks and even he notices and tells me that I keep getting checked out by women. While when i hang with a taller friend although he's a bit skinnier than I am we both get checked out and it's not really noticeable.10
Women preferring tall men is analogous to men preferring women below a certain weight. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a preference in body type, and most gentlemen give physical traits a lot of weight in deciding who they like.
I believe the frustration stems from having little dating experience, since I have met numerous fellows under 6' with "body counts" below 2. At the same time, there are a few who have large counts. The difference is confidence and how much of priority they give to "finding a woman." When your "shooting the shot" becomes the teeter-totter between having a good or bad day, lack of confidence and anger will manifest.10
Okay first of all, we can't just assume what everyone likes and group people together. There's not one set of preferences for every guy in the world.
Because a lot of guys aren't that tall and can't live up to those expectations. What they need to remember is that there's someone for everyone, everyone has different tastes and they can still get a girl. Guys also like a lot of of things that we can't live up to either, it's called life.10
My first and last pre-date girlfriend. She was taller than me even without her heels on.
I don't mind this nose piercing:
I like these nails:0
As a guy who's 5'8, 5'9 at best I can't worry about something I can't change. Girls who are 5'2 is fine, I think the average height for women in America is 5'4-5'5? But if a woman wants a bigger butt or bigger boobs or larger lips all she needs is surgery but I find incredibly immature and hypocritical if a girl or a woman makes fun of a guy's height meanwhile she's making herself fake by enhancing body parts that aren't real. I'm not saying its wrong for a girl to get breast implants for example, but geez man be civil to each other. I dated a girl taller then me and she was cool with it. If you are a confident guy with a good attitude and good morals, the right girl will come along. It's fine with me also if a girl likes taller guys. But that's like me saying I want a girl who's in shape, not some bitter/cranky overweight girl. Even girls who may be chubby I'd be willing to date if she has an awesome personality. I think some girls or some women are so insecure that they feel if they are with a shorter guy people will look at her differently. I also understand girls or women feel protected with a taller man, again, it's okay but what if that man had to fight in war and dies and that woman is now a widow? So to asker don't lash out at me and call me insecure, I am cool with a girl who likes tall guys, but at the same time its not the end all be all. In fact taller men may have back and knee issues as they get older to, I've seen many athletes in bad shape who are taller or with really bad ankles or knees and where the wife has to take care of the man. This is no shot, people can like who they please, it's a free world and i'm fine with that. Of course majority of guys will say they want to be taller just like a girl will say i want bigger boobs, the difference is, it's easier to change a tit size then your actual size.
All any woman needs to do to increase her attention is just go to the gym and eat right. Men don’t care about what women can do or what they know; attraction isn’t symmetrical. Women used to understand this, but thanks to single mother households women today don’t understand what is objective reality be what is subjective desire.
@DeltaCharlieEcho To each their own I guess, the only reason why I wish I was taller was so that I could dunk in basketball because I love playing basketball. Other then that being taller isn't something I care much about to "impress" girls. Females on GAG get easily and assume my post reflects my insecurity towards tall men which makes me hate women. That's not the case, I'm fine if girls or women have their own preference. But at the same time if I think Pamela Anderson from the 90s was hot girls will usually think I am weirdo just for saying that. So I guess the moral of the story is men/guys have to accept whatever females say or do, but guys/men can't, no wonder tons of people are single these days... Ah well.
Nah I know what you meant. I was just making a complimentary point to your post.
