  • I'd say 5'6" is still pretty short for a woman, but maybe that's because I'm 6'0"🤷‍♂️ Also, another negative for being tall is back problems. It's a well written and logically organized MyTake though :)

  • Good take..."You have less room on airplanes and in cars." this truly sucks and the worst on airplanes-I suffer. I have to order shoes, pants and shirts. Some clothes I have fit. And there is more...

  • It really depends how tall a guy is. I'm 6'5 and am starting to wish I was just that little bit shorter because the only way people describe you is "tall." Like "Who's that person? Oh he's the tall guy." It can be really aggravating. Not to mention your neck actually hurts from talking to people consideration shorter than you. And don't get me started on what it is like to date a short girl, so hard sometimes.

    • I know a tall girl who was literally a hunchback cause she had to look down to talk to people.

  • Do you realize, that most of the world uses metric system, right?
    Use it too. It's easier.
    To the topic. I'm considered tall (people keep telling me it, for some reason). I'd love to date tall girl. Like at least 1,8 m.

  • One important advantage of tall people (and a disadvantage of short people) is weight.
    It is far easier being skinny when you are tall, which means that tall people generally have more attractive physiques.

  • Good job with this unbiased take. I agree there are pros and cons to height. I never understood why people put so much emphasis on height, it doesn’t determine prowess, dominance or success. A person’s height is mostly aesthetics. I wrote a similar take not that long ago. Heightism: the Type of Discrimination That You Didn’t Know Existed ↗

  • I'd like to add one more negative to the tall girls side... its damn hard to find pants which are long enough. Like next to impossible. And its damn annoying. >_<
    I wouldn't refer to a 5'6 girl as tall though... more like 5'8+. I am 5'10 myself by the way.

    • It's harder for short girls to find pants short enough because the smaller you go the tighter it gets and if you try and go small enough for it to not be too long you'll end up not even fitting in it.

  • short girl negatives- no one takes u seriously, can't go out alone, can't fight back
    positives- ur cute, piggy back rides, approachable, short hair looks long on me

    You can almost never see and people sometimes step on your shoe because they can't see you."

  • I'd like to add for tall girls they can have more of a presence or a stronger impression than a short girl. So like if it was for a job interview you'd come off looking more serious and responsible as short girls normally look cute and are seen as weak. Of course you would still need to be confident but I feel like this is one area where most short girls will have to put in more effort to be taken seriously.

    Though I don't think 5'3 is short, I only consider anything below 5 short. This is cause the people around me, there aren't many who's height is at 5'8 or higher. Only a lot of people shorter than 5' so I consider 5'3 around that average. It's not true but it's just my opinion on the height thing. I still call myself shirt though lol cause I go off what people say which is that 5'2 is short

    • "5'6-5'7 isn't short for a guy".
      Thats because you are sweet and tolerant. Most girls would crush a guy for this height

  • I’m 5’2 and most guys I know are 5’10 and above and all are attracted to girls who are 5’4 and shorter. And most short girls like guys who are 5’8 and taller anyways so it’s a win win.

  • I'm 5'2.5" which is short to the world but for where I live, it is a good height. Fairly above average (which is like 5'0" for women) but not too tall. I'm actually very happy with my height.

    That being said my preferred range of height for guys is 5'4" to 5'11". Also, if I was really tall I would not mind dating a shorter guy, like someone tell me wtaf is wrong with a shorter guy? I understand tall is preferred and desirable, that's totally ok, but rejecting a good man for not being tall enough, really girl? Smh.
