tall girls usually like a guy taller than them, but I've seen couples were the guy is shorter I really don't have a preference but I'm short I'm 4ft 11in
Short girls like the fact that guys aren't towering over them. I'm 5"0 and personally when a man is towering over me it feels like I'm more like his little sister than an equal.
I used to only be attracted to tall guys, but I recently discovered that I actually prefer short guys. But I still wouldn't want to date a guy who is shorter than I am. I'd like for him to have at least 2" on me. I'm just not attracted to guys who are shorter than I am, and it would feel awkward to date someone like that.
But there are plenty of girls out there who are shorter than 5'2" so you shouldn't have much of a difficulty there. And there are some girls who also don't even mind if the guy IS shorter than she is. I'm just not one of them lol.
I don't care about a person's height. Then again I am 5'1 and it is kind of hard to find a guy shorter then me.
1 girls are shallow too
2 5'7 is not that short
3 don't be a jerk be the good guy she will never forget
4 don't lose an opportunity to be friends because the best relationships start as friends
nah, but then again practically everyone is taller than me but if a guy is a lot taller than me I feel awkward. It kind of stinks when the guy can jokingly use your head for an arm rest ...
It sounds bad, but I prefer tall guys. I've always been tall and hated it, and want a taller guy to make me feel shorter than I am. Plus when you're upset about something it's great to lean against your boy friends chest rather than the top of his head I've also thought it was super hot in mvoeis when girls have to stretch up really far to kiss their guy on the mouth, arms around neck and all ooh and when he helps by pulling her hips or butt up. <3 but if he's the same height as me, I can totally deal :P and don't just listen to me..im a hopeless romantic. :P
It wouldn't be a problem with me as long as he doesn't have a Napoleon complex.
For me I like a taller guy. I like to dress up and I'm 6'1 in heels, I've also got a Joan body so I'm a lot of woman amazonian if you like, if heard it before. If a guy is too much shorter than me, it makes me look not only crazy tall but fat. With a guy of average height, which I think is 5'10 in the uk, I don't look as tall and a man at that height normally is wider than me. Basically taller guys make me feel more feminine and delicate or "woman". If guys are taller than their girls the girls look skinnier and the men burlier.
Depends. I'm 5'8 1/2 and dated a guy who was 5'6. It was sort of an issue in that friends teased him and razzled that he wanted a trophy wife. It irked me at times. I even cussed out one of his pals one time for his comments (also because he was sexist with me and a perv). But, the truth is I was rather surprised that I was attracted to him. I thought his height would turn me off. It didn't. he had a great personality. He was funny as hell. A great kisser and lover. Wonderful smile. Skilled at work. Confident. Handsome. So basically, because he had a great personality the height wasn't an issue...it was more of an issue with friends. Yet, even his male friends admitted they would go for him if they were gay (a bloody weird thing to say about a male pal). He had a "it" factor.
Again, it will be an initial issue and always come up once in a while, but there are plenty of 'hot' girls who can look beyond the height issue. Confidence and humor is sexy. I've been with tall GQ type of guys and have wanted to blow my brains out because they had no personality. Dreadful. So, work on your communication skills, bedroom skills and coin one hot sinful smirk. Gets me every time...
how short are we talking here?
i'm 5'6. so a guy 5'5 is fine
but a guy 5'4 is not
Dont worry about it. 5'7" isn't bad. Its mostly the taller girls that go for the taller guys. I've met some pretty banging short girls too so your fine. Just try not to let it reach to your self esteem.
i've seen short guys, bald guys and fat guys with chicks. cute chicks. so there is something..
but if I was a chick, I wouldn't date a short guy. at least 5' 7" minimum.
Yeah you're totally f***ed. If you were exactly 6'' I'd be like you're fine but anything below 6'' and your life is f***ed, you're gonna die poor and lonely, guess you just gotta get used to it.
I'm only 5 foot 6 dude, I don't get called small, but I do get called cute and adorable, which can be annoying lol.
To tell you the truth, 5'7" is the average height for females. Average. Which means they go from 4'10" to 6'7".
In american culture, it seems pretty much the norm that the 5'2" and below are looking for totem poles, aka guys at least 6'0" but preferably above, merely because 6' is a pretty number. There's no better reason for it, really.
However, there are various 5'3" to 5'6" girls who would gladly go out with a 5'7" tall guy.
Of course, you can't really expect the 5'10" and above girls to want to be with you, because they're most often consumed by their feminine identity.
So, to sum it all up, you can find INTELLIGENT, RATIONAL girls who would still be interested in you as a person and more, and would not care about whether you're a tower or just a casual human being. So you shouldn't look down on yourself just because of your height - any girl who has a problem with it is not really worth pursuing anyways.
I'm 5'7" but girls at school say I'm cute. Think that's good. Lol.
It's definitely an obstacle because society teaches people to see tall as a positive and short as a negative for men. Women range in shallowness when it comes to height, but they generally seem to prefer a guy to be taller than them. As a fellow short guy, I can't really offer much advice on this problem except to look for people who are actually looking to connect with you as a person. Once they get to know you, even as a casual friend, it's probably easier for them to look past height because they're more aware of your good qualities. Stay strong, man and hold you head up high! Well, as high as we can. :)
I’m 5’7 and I like girls the same height as me!
