  • 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'.

  • I'm 5'3" . I prefer to look at his face than looking at his little bird all the time so if he's within 5'9 to 6' is just nice. If he's to tall, I can't kiss him standing and if my eye level is on the lower part of torso then that's not fun.

  • I'm 5' 7", and honestly, I couldn't date someone shorter than that. My height, eh, alright, but I would prefer 5' 10" - 6' 3" ish.

    6' 4" and up? Okay, but you'd better be prepared to pay for my medical bills when my neck is ruined. :P

  • 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

  • No such thing. As far as I know. Although I've heard, most girls in america prefers 6 footers. I don't know why. But yea, majority of women has no height preferences.

  • 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

  • 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

    thank god I still have a more beautiful face and body than most of those male trees walking around muhahaha :D

    and I won't really kick random people in the nuts - that would be quite weird.

  • 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

  • My ex said it was always "two inches taller than the guy I'm currently wanting. Just to give me an edge so he don't get too cocky. And so I'm not the 'googly-eyed wannabe'."
    It was either really smart or really mean. I'm not sure which...

  • As a guy who is only 6' it's obvious girls want much taller than that, so I'm pretty depressed about being so short. That being said though a woman who is taller than 5' 9" is way too tall for me and most guys, so I wouldn't waste my time with them since they only want guys who are 6' 5" and up

  • My height (5'8''¨) xD

    OK, I'm joking. I'd love to be taller, but I know I won't. So the best thing to do is accepting your height because I don't think it'll matter if a girl truly loves you. We're not perfect.

    Not all women like it but a few do, and you get your pick of them, plus you get a free multimillion dollar job as an NBA center.

    • Funny you say that, I was reading an article about how the easiest way to become a millionaire is to be born over 7'0 as an American. I forget the exact numbers but its something like a 20% chance of making the NBA and becoming a millionaire.

  • Doesn't matter, since you can't make yourself taller. Spend the time and energy instead on working on other parts of you.
