  • Maybe I'm a bit late for the question, but I think it really depends on the girl. Not only me but many girls around me agree that the perfect height is the one that allows you to snuggle in your boy's shoulder and it wouldn't be an exact measure but a range.
    I'm not from the states so I'm not used to use imperial system so I will use metric and try to do an aproximation. I'm 1.70 m tall. I like boys being at leas 15 cm taller than me, so about 1.85 would be my minimum and my maximum 2 m tall. I think that it would be: me 5'6'', minimum 6' 1'' , max 6' 6'' .
    I prefer personallity over looks but if talking about looks, for me, height is the most important thing. I'm from a country where people is really short. I know around the world as much, I'm average, in many countries I'm even petite but here I'm like super tall. I'm even on the average or over the average for men, so it is difficult for me finding someone tall enough that is not related to me, so...
    In general I think that women search for taller man. This because, instinct, meaning you feel protected and that you can depend on him ( with this NOT meaning women are fragile and need help for everything, but considering it as a primitive remain of our insticts for the search for a suitable mate) and it's more comfortable and easier to kiss, hug, snuggle, have sex, dance, etc.

    • What entitles you to demanding a man at least 5 inches taller? Using your logic, would you rather date a a guy. 4 inches taller or 5 inches taller but is a know rapist? Or die alone?

    • Your comment is incredibly stupid dude

    • @Armourdillo Wut? Lmfao

      Did you seriously ask her this question in this way?

  • If I have to be super specific I'm a sucker for 6'2". Tall guys make me feel feminine, and a 6 inch difference lines up really well for kissing, snuggling, dancing, sex. I don't know I just like it.

    I'm 5'8", tall enough that I'm distinctly beyond the bounds of fun sized, and am near eye level with a good number of guys. I have gone out with guys who are shorter than me, but it just didn't click for me. So, personality aside (which has a HUGE impact) here's my personal scale...

    5'10" attractive

    6' noticeably tall

    6'2" ideal

    6'4" tip-toeable

    6'5" + too tall to be accessible

    • haha! I like 6'5" when they're skinny, but I'm just an aesthetic person.

    • Got it...2 to 4 inches taller than her, I'm in, 6 inches I'm really in, start to push it at 'tip-toeable'
      So a tip toable girl for me at 5'10" is...5'4"... sounds about right to me :-)

  • We all have an ideal height for a partner, but for me that really goes out the window when you meet someone you like.

    Everything I see and hear indicates that most women prefer a guy who is at least 180 cm.

    • Maturity may need to kick in among people for this opinion to carry weight, but I agree with you wholeheartedly. It really doesn't matter much when you meet a potential someone.

    • Thanks for the MHO

  • I will tell you this and this is for all those gigantic idiots who use words like manlets for guys in the range of 5'8''-5'11". That range of height is the most beautiful one for any man, guys who are 5'4" to guys who are 6'2" can talk to you without straining their spine, it actually makes you rather friendly and approachable, women can wear high heels and still be your height, i am talking about the average girl and the most beautiful women we check out are in that height range, i mean look at the hottest female celebs 159-170 is their range. This is the height of the alpha male, trust me, its good to have an IQ above average, look above average etc but the best height is the average height. If u still don't believe me look at most of the heart throbs tom cruise 5'7'', Zac efron 5'8'', in india there is hrithik roshan 5'9''-5'10'' etc, love yourself, walk tall and confident and yes, I am 5'10'' myself, no regrets, i consider myself decent looking and tall enough and a few ginormous pimply teens typing from their mom's garage will not change that

  • I am 5'6 (just under 170cm). I wouldn't find any heigth a dealbreaker (although I'm not sure about actual giants with a height way over 2m, or people with dwarfism), but I have found that I'm generally most attracted to guys around 6'2 or 6'3 (190 cm). Although I'd consider it in the range 'perfect' anywhere from 5'11 (Say 180cm) to 6'7 or so. Then anywhere between 5'5 and 6'9 would be 'completely fine', under 5'5 and over 6'9 would be 'Yeah I can deal with that, not a problem'.

  • About 5 foot 10 to 6 foot 2 roughly.

    I'm 5 foot 6, so I'm quite tall for a girl. I like my man to be half a head - head taller than me but any more and it's like I need climbing ropes and a harness to go kiss him...! The other problem is if they're too close to me height wise I look like a giant in heels (but I rarely wear heels so it's not that much of a problem)

  • I'm 5'3 and my ideal height for a boy would be between 5'7 and 5'10, someone taller than me but not ridiculously taller than me. However, my boyfriend is actually 6'0, so height doesn't matter very much to me (though it's very frustrating having to stand on things to kiss him without leaning up. On my tiptoes, I can just about kiss his jaw)

    • I'm surprised he didn't kneel down out lift you up.

    • You should tell him to duck down everytime for a kiss.

    • Oh, I often get lifted up! Whenever I see him, I usually get picked up and carried around at least once and he thinks it's funny to pretend to drop me, even if he's just letting me fall down onto the sofa or the bed. He ducks sometimes but then he usually ends up mocking my height. Tall people are so mean :3

  • I'm 5'3" and my ideal guy is ANYTHING taller than me. But I also like when I have to look up to see his eyes, or kiss. But I also kinda like boys shorter than me, "fun sized" ^.~ I like both but prefer taller :D

  • I don’t really have a preference. I do find myself dating guys who are 6ft tall tho. I’m 5’2 and I don't know I just feel like that height is perfect for cuddling. It’s also easy for him to kiss the top of my head. It’s also nice cause he’s still a lot taller when I wear heels

    • @Armourdillo of course I would love my short kids.
      Just because a person is taller than me who is midget doesn't make them any less short.
      I'm not holding anyone back, I can't help who I'm attracted to and nor should I.

  • Im not picky. Id date a dwarf if his personality lined up with mine. But I have always seemed to date guys around a foot or more taller than me. I don't know if thats because I unintentionally go for really tall guys or they go for me. Im 5ft.

  • Nooo! Surgery is not worth it. Your height is fine! It's not even short. There's no general ideal height. It differs from every person so I wouldn't count on it. You can find a nice girl either shorter or taller for you. I'd say to work on your confidence instead of wasting money on a unnecessary surgery.

    • I can totally work on my confidence, but I would like an honest, no BS answer as to whether or not I can be as hot as a tall guy.

    • Honestly. Yes. Only because Im 5'11" sooo I tend to go for these guys.

  • I'm only 5'1 so anyone taller than me is good. In fact based on practicality I would prefer a shorter guy. But unfortunately I don't want my kids (especially a son) to have to deal with the daily struggle of being bullied because of his height. So I'd probably want someone around 5'8 and either under or over depending on the day

  • My good friend is around 5'6 - 5'7, and back then, she mentioned that she will never choose a partner that is shorter than her. A few years down the road, after her first marriage, she meet another guy who is good to her and whom she loves a lot. The guy is shorter than her, around 5'4. They have an adorable kid and are now, very happy together.
    We may have a preference for taller guys, but when we meet the right one, one that we can hit it off, these so-called "criteria" will not be our priority anymore.

    • "accept" it's really fucking feels bad that you go around measuring guys and crossing people as a acceptable or not depending on their height. Using you logic, personality only matters at 5'9+ right?

      I hope you at least admit you're shallow. So since shorter guys are unacceptable, what then? Does it make you sick when a short guy serves you in a restaurant, or fixes your car? Do you only request tall workers?

  • Ok so I'm a guy but this really pisses me off…. I'm 5'10 and I've been rejected by several girls purely and specifically because I'm under 6'0. What's most annoying isn't the fact that there was only 2 inches in it but also one of these girls was 5'1 and two others were 5'3 (I know because it was on a dating website). They say they like tall men which is fair enough... if they are tall themselves but why when they are short would they factor whether or not to date someone purely on whether or not they're over 6 foot. Besides at my height I would be considered tall compared to them, plus I could have lots of other qualities.

    It's absolutely ridiculous, it's like me at my height rejecting a really nice 5'2 girl because I don't want a girl taller than 5'0…

    Guys don't seem to care about height like girls do. I generally prefer shorter girls to taller girls but personality, facial features and body all come first for me so I don't get why girls are hung up on height so much. I get the impression from these posts that most girls though don't think like this which is reassuring. I would date a girl anywhere from 4'9 - 5'9, which is very reasonable and open, anything below my height basically.

    • So you got rejected by the short girls but you are fine with the tall ones? Like the ones that are 5'4-5'8 are fine with your height? I have actually noticed that trend about short girls wanting tall guys. It seems as the girl gets taller her height expectations get lower. Like a 6' girl would be ok dating a 5'8 guy but a 5' girl would not date someone under 6'. Kinda weird right? One thing going for me is that im 5'11.5 so i can just lie and say i am 6 foot and no one will ever know.. except myself and my doctor

  • ill punch every guy that is 6 ft or more in the balls from now on, let the revenge of the smaller persons start ! :p

    most girls are still smaller than me but even with 5'7" I seem f***ed :o

  • I think it depends on the girl, for shorter girls a shorter to avg height guy but for the taller girls who are 5'8" and up they would probably like a taller guy, usually girls like a guy that is about 3-5" taller, that's usually the difference when they wear heels. But there are the exceptions, the short girls who love tall guys and the rare tall girl who likes a shorter guy

  • I think girls have a really weird view, no one grow up to be the perfect height, some are genetically gifted where the parents were about the same height and others not so much. Michael Jordan is 6’6 but no one in his family was over 5’9.

    That’s like me saying my ideal girl has to have size DD breasts. It’s just a superficial thing to say on my end. Obviously guys want to be taller but being 5’8 and having the ability to walk after seeing my friend be paralyzed waist down after a skiing accident made me realize why the fuck are we so anal and trivial over these numbers *smh*

    I mean if I want to get religious, I can state that the first man ever on earth, Adam, was 90 feet tall, and there’s proof of that. Jesus was probably 5’10-6ft at best
