I'm a girl, and I see nothing wrong with short men. Personally, I have no clue why people go on and on and on about being tall or short. Does it really matter? Even though I know it sounds cliche, isn't it whats on the inside that counts?

First of all, height absolutely does not matter in a relationship. I'd never judge anyone by their height.
Secondly, short guys are adorable. :D I tend to like them more than tall guys. Haha...



Lovely Complex ftw btw

I think all the women here who saying they like short guys are being nice. I didn't have a my last growth spurt (i'm about 1.8m) until I was 17 and about to enter college. And was about 1.5m for most of high school. Girls don't like short guys unless their is something to offset it. Like your looks or something else. But side by side to a taller guy, with everything you have, over 75% of the time she's picking the taller one.

Here's an interesting article:

I think the perfect height is around 5'10ish for a guy, i am 5'11 and already it feel a little too tall for some chairs , and anything over is kinda ogreish

Yeah, maybe they're just being nice...
Apparently this article states that there is no hope to short men.

Yes, let's treat any diversity and minority opinion as incorrect because it doesn't follow the status quo.

Just like how every guy on the internet who claims to prefer flat chests must just be being nice.

I live in Brazil and although the average height is 1.70 m there are M-A-N-Y tall people. My father himself is 1.81 m.
Brazilian women are no exception to the rule that females prefer tall men.

Short girls medium guy, ftw. :)
Like I said in a previous post, I like to be cradled and have someone chest and arms to wrap around me. If it was a guy my height/smaller than me, my head would have to go on their shoulder and it's just not the same comforting feeling.
In my opinion above 5'11 is too much for me, seeing as I'm 5'4.
You're still the one that I love, the only one I dream of~

Nowadays is not height that makes an alpha male. But anyway we're still pretty "animalistic" like some guy wrote.

Hey, I currently have no income. I'd date not for the money but for access to his social circle. Then, I'd dump 'im if he was a jerk. It really does matter what a person acts like, and as long as their figure wasn't mentally scaring or something, and have a kind personality, I'd date them.

I've never dated since I'm obviously too young, but I used to have a lot of crushes on short boys

I guess if you want the perspective from a 10 year old girl, lmao :/

Have pride in being short! I'm also rather short for my age, but I am still growing, so..

Have you ever heard of a girl who like short guys or didn't have anything against dating a short guy? Just by curiosity, I want to know about this from people from other countries.

[edit] - I'm 1.68 m - 5' 6"

That's 2 inches taller than me, so to me that's not too short lol. Short to me is 5'4'' and smaller.

I was trying to holler at this chick. She was 6'1". She wasn't interested, unfortunately. So from that one experience, I have come to a grand conclusion that girls do not like short guys.

Since I am a short girl, I guess I like shorter men.

More or less though, I don't think how tall they are is really an issue for me.

I have to say I'm 5'2 and I've dated a guy that was 6'3 and the other guy I dated after that was 5'6. Height isn't the issue as much as the personality of the guy. If he is good to you than that is all that matters. He has to be able to defend your honor! No matter how tall or short he is! lol

Well for me as a guy, I wouldn't like a taller girlfriend (I'm 178 cm tall).
ROFL.
I'd want to be the type of boyfriend that protects my little helpless girl.
I'd want a shorter girlfriend.
Short girls are cute ♥_♥

ROFL, well that's just my personal preference.

I'm a short guy; 5'4" irl. It used to bug me a lot because the girls I went to school with made a big deal about it.

But yeah, a girl's height doesn't matter to me, I've dated quite a few taller than me post high school.

And I liked LC for that exact reason hehe.

Looks do not matter; but the outside attracts people into the inside (well, that's how most people go) It might sound a bit wrong.. but looks get the attention first. Although, I tend to like guys when their personality shows up on the outside. Hard to explain, also hard to find - seeing as most people hide behind a persona.

Gahh, anyway the inside counts the most; so your height doesn't matter; although, different girls like different guys..

This thread depresses me, was it really needed to be asked on a forum about dating issues you have with short girls?

Do friends not know about these problems?

Ask for advice where ever you can get it from. I know I would never ask something like this to my friends. They would probably laugh at me, being the wonderfully supportive compatriots they are.

To give short guys some hope: The next student body president at my school is an inch or two shorter than me(I am a female who is just barely 5'6"). He also won two of around twelve awards given to the academically successful members of the junior class in an assembly today; one general, one specified to the math/science department that came with some huge scholarship. He's probably the only guy in our grade who is noticeably shorter than I am.
He also doesn't have a girlfriend. Which is truly weird when you consider that just about everyone in our class likes his personality, but he doesn't seem interested in dating, so that may be all it is. Either that or it's the fact that he seems to draw out everything he talks about, beyond the words any other person I know should need use of to explain themselves, so it can be weird trying to have a full conversation with him.

Personally, I'd prefer a guy who's shorter than me or a girl that's a little taller. Alas I'm not in a position to give much thought to dating.

Believe it or not, but as you get older, issues like height become far less problematic. I didn't have a SINGLE gf in high school at an astounding 5'4", then in college I had 2 long term relationships (one 1.5 yr, another 3), then in law school, I had a lot of flings. I realize I'm kinda dating myself here, but here's my point to all you short guys out there...

It REALLY isn't the package itself, but how you present it. If you even begin to think you dont stand a chance because youre short, you've already lost the battle. A confident and witty short guy will take home the girl over a tall shy guy 9 times out of 10. I promise. Just work on the confidence.

I wish there was a good anime guy to model yourself after, but none come to mind atm. Ulquiorra[sp?] maybe? He seems kinda short, but that's one cocky mofo and fan girls go nuts over him.

-.- probably a bad example, but hopefully you see where I am going.

I do. I don't mind if they're shorter than me, I actually find it pretty attractive.

I have to say though, I don't understand the intense focus on height, especially in heterosexual relationships. I understand if it's a preference, but for some people, I think it subconsciously reflects gender roles and that is a little disturbing.

I'm 4'11 irl.
Personally:
As long as the guy is taller than me, by an inch or whatever, it doesn't matter just the idea of a guy being under 5ft? I feel sorry for them, I have troubles being as short as I am and I'm a girl.
In General:
Tall guys are cute even when their face isn't, this is just by looks. You need the personality if you're going to date someone too. Tall guys just make you feel safer and special.. err I don't know how to explain it. maybe it adds to manliness?

News! I found a community on the social network website ORKUT (mostly brazilian) called "Women Who Love Short Guys"! I'm impressed by the amount of women in the community!
This is the community's image:


And I found about Tom Cruise's special sneakers, but I wouldn't like one of these:

Well... I'm a pretty short girl, 5'5. If I was really into a guy his height wouldn't really matter to me, as a matter of preference I like them to be my height or taller. My boyfriend is 5'8 and he always feels like he's short, and wishes he was taller, but compared to my height I think 5'8 is perfect.
