Do people enjoy finding every excuse as to why they are single or can't pull a member of the opposite gender?
Sure, I'm average or short(5'3) and I prefer tall guys, but I know girls who are the complete opposite :D
it shouldn't be, you can't exactly control your height. people whine about being single because they don't or rarely try to change that circumstance. accentuate the positives and quit whining about your self perceived faults.
Most women prefer men who are at least 4 inches taller than they are (there are scientific studies that empirically back this up). Women also tend to be quite vocal about their preference for tall men in my experience.
Personally, I don't give a sh*t about height either way and find it odd that it's such a big deal for some people. I'm 5'10'' which a lot of women explicitly have said they consider to be on the short side (even though medically it is the median height for an American male). I've dated girls that were as short as 5'0'' and as tall as 6'1'' - they were all attractive to me in different ways and their height was never an issue for me, even though it was an issue with some of them.
The funny thing is that I have every reason to be insecure about my height because I was bullied for being short all throughout grammar school (I was a late bloomer and didn't even break 5 feet until I was in the 6th grade). But my height isn't an issue for me, so I don't really care if it's an issue with a potential girlfriend.
This seems to be an issue for guys because it's an issue for girls. Many women are not shy about openly stating their preference for tall men and then they wonder why some guys have insecurities about it.
It's not for me, I don't care as long as the girl is shorter than me...
the thing is there's a preference and then a standard lol, if you say you prefer guys over 5'10 that's fine but if you say you will only date or even consider guys over 5'10 that's a little ridiculous... but that's still all on you and I've gotten over it
Do I wish I was taller? Yeah sure but for the most part I am happy being 5'11. Only when my sisters boyfriend comes around do I feel short. He is 6'4 300+lbs of pure muscle and I look like a kid next to him. But it is what it is. Now on the whole dating issue, I have been both with a short girl that was 5 feet and with a tall girl who was 6'3 so I don't care about height. I liked the tall girl the most and was probably the most beautiful girl I have ever seen.
Because the girls on here throw out numbers of wanting 6 inches taller or more and guys usually just say shorter is good. They don't say I'm 5'8" she has to be 5'0".
All I hear is a lot of talk from people. Yet I doubt half the things people say they want on here they would be willing to overlook if someone they thought was attractive asked them out
Nah I don't give a damn about height at all.
As a tall guy I will say I have gotten recognition for it, and undue praze from people throughout life. I guess if a short guy is insecure about his height and sees a tall guy getting attention he might get jealous.
Damn, I was going to try and cyber you. Way to ruin my mojo.
Height means nothing to me because in my life I've seen maybe 3 or 4 guys shorter than me. I'd date a guy of any height, I really don't care. Honestly, I'd be more upset about him being too tall than being too short. My boyfriend is 6' and I wish he were shorter.
No not really but people over exaggerate it to make it seem like it is.
I believe that there's someone in the world for everybody. So it doesn't matter how tall you are. Some people may lie to themselves saying that's why they are single. It may give them pride or make them feel less sh*tty about themselves. And I really can't be picky since I am extremely tall ( 5'10 ) But I know you didn't ask this but I wouldn't mind dating someone a couple inches shorter then me :D.
i don't really really mind but tall guys with fit bodies make you feel protected especially when you're with them if you get what I mean, its not always something to do with attractiveness just the feeling you get when they're with them
I always say its not a big deal...
i am 5'5 ...some dudes are my height...Honestly idgfa...if I like someone...i usually think they are perfect the way they are.
LOL @ your update! :D
i wouldn't date someone shorter than me, I'm 5'6
