Well I'm a girl who currently lives in the USA and my ideal height for males is 5 feet and 5 to 9 inches. I don't know if you consider that short. Tallness is a big turn-off for me. I can barely see anyone over 6 feet as human.

Damn. I always thought I looked like a human...

I really like them but they have no interest in short ones like me.

Maybe in some afterlife when I reincarnate (XD) as a man who will grow tall...

Sure. I know some guys would be uncomfortable if a girl was taller than them, but for me it wouldn't matter, and I used to know a guy who dated a girl taller than him.

I don't know. I'm not particularly myself, but I'll admit I would feel better with someone taller than myself. I actually don't like too tall guys - about 10-20cm taller than me is more than fine.

I do think, however, that it looks funny with a couple where the woman is much taller than the guy :b

My mother's side is full of kind, generous and highly intelligent people. They're all around 5'5.
My dad's side is full of selfish, careless people. They're all around 6'0.
I'm pretty damn proud of my genes. I remember praying I would grow up short just so I could proudly say I didn't inherit anything from my dad's side of the family. :P

I don't really care about height. I'm picky about other stuff, like personality and intelligence. >_>

I'm 5' 10'' btw, so shorter guy or same height as me, is a reality to me.

The majority of girls like tall guys, but yeah I'm only 5'8 but, I'm not rejected, and have never been.. I think it depends who it is, and who you're around to get rejected.

My opinion though.

There's this adorable Japanese guy who lives in my villiage somewhere. I always see him around, he looks to be is his late teens but he can't be any taller than 5"4. And he has really poofy hair. ^.^ I want to cuddle him every time I see him.

This being said, I much perfer taller guys. I've only ever dated one guy who was shorter than me, and he was an exception 'cause he had one of the best personalities in the world. Only he was too posessive and turned into a bit of a stalker. X'D Deary meee...

I'm a short girl myself and I like shorter guys. P:

In fact, my current crush is like 5'3" or something. He's not that much taller than me which is surprising (I'm 4'11" at 15 years old).

I definitely prefer guys who are taller than me but it's not that hard considering I'm only about 5'2. Not that I go around asking them, but the girls who have had this discussion with me say they prefer guys to be even just slightly taller than them (or tall enough to match the girl's height even when the girl is wearing heels!)

So, yeah, I guess shorter-than-average guys have it a bit tougher ^^;;

As for the shallow thing, why does having any physical preferences have to be shallow? That's like saying "you like penis better than vagina? omg you're so shallow you jerk." I understand a meet y'all halfway in what you're saying, but some of it seems like the ridiculousness of when someone starting calling me a objectifying, shallow hypocrite for liking flat chests and hating fat women for not liking a hip size that is particularly wider than the stomach size.

But how alienating to my heterosexual side when I, like these women who prefer a man taller than them, prefer a woman taller than me. I don't WANT to date a woman . And it's like people are saying that in most case, I have to if I want to date a woman? All of these stereotypes and statistic I often hear, often from heterosexual and often even heteronormative and conservative gender essentialist, are not making heterosexuality sound very appealing.

And people frequently spend their time bashing on lolicon and in aesthetic as well, when society is practically enforcing the lolicon aesthetic in some ways. People are always complaining that people are sexualizing "characters that look like little kids" but look at how much society seems to something that's different?

These anti-lolicon types who say they want women to "look like women" and "look like adults" clearly don't, they think that men should in fact, be with short little girls. Or do you? I'd like to hear your opinions on this subject, come out come out wherever you are normalfags!

And seriously, instead of a tall girl date me because she "doesn't want to be shallow and not care about height", I'd rather her considered me being shorter than her attractive. One of the personality traits I would want in a woman, is finding all sorts of things about my body, attractive. Not "oh well I like you for your personality anyway". A woman who finds short sexy has many more sexy points in my opinion.

I swear, every day of my life gives me even more reason to be an androgyny-fascist.
And I'm not gonna settle for anything as ridiculous as these problematic anti-aesthetic, anti-sexuality objectification arguments out there that not anybody in their right mind is going to listen to, or are going to result to wordings and positions backing the fortifications of certain people labeling people who "like flat chest women/tall women/short men/aesthetic ect." as "failed to get someone busty/short/tall".


I agree with you for the most part.

Everyone has preferences. But telling a girl the equivalent of "I'd date you, but I find your flat chest/blonde hair/wide hips disgusting" is kind of harsh.

I went off on a limb and assumed the OP was rejected *only* because of his height, which I do find a little stupid. I just feel like it's something that has to do with society's perceptions too, you know? Like you said, the "norm" seems to be, or is even dictated to be, by most, that women are short and men are tall and they can tower over them when they carry their princess into the sunset. Sometimes I feel like this preference only exists because people are afraid of the way it'll make them look to others...wouldn't it be worth it to get past it for the sake of a good relationship?

People always have preferences, like I said, but there has to be a happy medium somewhere. People can't expect to win some kind of partnership lottery and find someone who is not only emotionally compatible with them but also satisfies a long list of physical requirements. Sometimes it happens, other times it's unrealistic. I just think that if people stepped out of their comfort zone, outside of their preferences, they would be pleasantly surprised by the result.

And I'm not saying to all of a sudden abandon everything you find attractive. But think about it. Weigh your options. If a girl or boy is adorable and has a great personality, beautiful eyes and hair just the way you like it but they are just a little too tall/short/fat/busty/flat/black/white/asian for your preferences, maybe good things will happen when you pursue them in spite of that one thing.

At a reasonable 6'0 most women are open to me. But I have seen some ridiculous things such as a woman who was 6'3 who appeared to be going out with someone noticeably shorter than me. Just goes to tell you anything can happen with confidance and skill.

I went out with a guy that was 6'1", and I really really liked him, but I still kept audibly telling him he was too tall. Sure it was more of a teasing joke, but it really did bother me and I wished he was shorter. It wouldn't get in the way of a relationship because he had many other personal qualities I liked, but yeah, too tall. Tall enough to stare down my shirt. >_> Much prefer eye level. I'm 5'5" by the way.

I'm a girl, and I basically just wouldn't go shorter than I am, it has nothing to do with the clique-ness of it, or anything like that.
I just purely like to be cradled over with arms, allowing my head to rest on a firm chest. I see my self as reasonably small, I'm 5'3 but I'm still growing.
Anyway, back to the point. Guys who are 5'3 or above will do fine.
How can a girl want a nice warm comforting hug where the guys head is in her breasts?

It's weird, I can't bare to start watching lovely complex.

A guy's height does matter to some girls. Its one of those traits we carry over from our more animalistic day when finding the biggest strongest male was important for survival. Though I don't know why its so important to some girls now.

I think it's just as likely a throwback to the thousands of years of male cultural dominance still with us today. I swear I wouldn't mind a Matriarchal society for a least a few centuries worth of years just for a change of pace. Surely things would even out eventually.

Where's our female arms to stay in?:'(

Oh yeah, I'm definitely with the "give people a chance" crowd.

My ex-girlfriends all had very few of the features I say I like in a woman, aside from personality(and sometimes even that, I learned, which is why we ended up breaking apart), and one of them I even kinda miss now. We spent a lot of time in high school together, and broke it off because we were going to be separated by graduation circumstances. I kind of miss that we couldn't spend more time together than we did. And rather kind of wish she was here. Though admittedly a part of me still doesn't see myself with her in the long term. It's weird, with me.

What a stupid question. The human population of the world is over 6 billion. Is there anything else to discuss about?

Every human on this earth has their own prefferences, I believe you do understand to that extend, or do you not believe me? Do I have to explain what I meant? As I can see, my opinion has been answered already.

Agreed! And it's the people who aren't willing to give others a chance that I can wholeheartedly label as shallow. Anything else, I think, is reasonable.

Huhm, pretty sure this partially is directed to me. So why not.

Hey, it was a sentence, so there was a lot of room for interpretation. Tho I think it's rather extreme to use penis and vagina to describe physical preference comparisons. You might as well go for animal boy/girlfriends, too, hell, they're all under physical preferences. While I guess that's okay, that's seems to be extrapolating far more of simply what the sentence meant under the context. Tho I pretty much forgot the mood when I made the post anyways.

But yea, like, I think, someone has said, it seems shallow when they take their preference a tad too far. Like rejecting him and using height as a part of the reason. I mean, first impression is vital and all, but just the height shouldn't impact the whole deal. And I can't imagine girls even being embarrassed just because their boyfriend was short and not call them shallow.

Anyways, that one sentence had a lot of room for interpretation, and it made me think on what I said. Which, I realized, was actually a mistake on my part. Since I only initially meant to post the shallowness of the question, since there's an arbitrary value in it which is the main context of the question. Meeeeeeh.

I am very into Asian woman, but I noticed they don't date many tall guys. I am 6'5" so I guess I am kinda tall. It was disappointing to come to this conclusion, but my next goal in life is to find a cute Japanese girl that is on par with my height XD

Wish me luck!

It all comes down to personal preference OP. Not all women are attracted to the same type of guy. Also, the whole notion that men shouldn't date women who are taller than them and vice versa just bothers me.

Hmm i'm 1.80-1.79 m and most girls i know are the same height as me:p or bigger but i never had any problems.But damn those giants :p

Warning. Dont get offended by the next text. It's just something i think.

To topic starter, all the girls have different preferences. Just like boys. For instance i just love good looking redheads nothing beats a good looking redhaired girl(yeah i know good looking please dont start flamin.. We all know most people prefer good looking people). With girls it's the same some like a dark skinned man other girls like tall man and others like short girls.

I think some of the girls that like tall man just like the safe feeling. We all know tall people look stronger and tougher. Maybe search for girl that dont get this feeling, like Girls that can handle them selfs(I KNOW! GIRLS THAT DATE LARGE GUYS CAN ALSO HANDLE THEMSELFS DONT START FLAMIN..) BUt this is just a theory and i'm not a psychiatrist so dont blame me if shit goes wrong:p.

Caution. SOme girls that are overconvident in them selfs can be aggresive:p
