do the majority of 6'3"+ men actually prefer short women or is this something short women have deluded themselves into thinking? I always see articles on why tall men love short women and countless cancer facebook posts like pic related but they are clearly made by women so whats the truth??
I'm not tall myself but I once asked a friend of mine who is quite tall about this and he said that he prefers tall women or at the very least 5'6"+ because otherwise everything becomes too awkward.
But he's just one person so who knows.
Kek those posts used to piss me off so much. So many short girls on the internet have that narcissistic complex. I'm going to guess anime did this.... And no guys do not care as much as the posts say they do.
I'm short and my boyfriend's a manlet according to 4chan standards and we have the height difference in that pic. Either that guy isn't tall or that girl isn't short, and that pic is bullshit
Guys really don't care about height. Yeah, men have preferences (everybody does), but we don't take it to the extreme to where we won't date someone of a certain height. I guess the exception for most guys would be if the woman is taller, but a good bit of my friends have dated taller women.
That said, I think women care more about height than men do.
Not the anon you're replying to, but I'd say girls care about height just as much as men do. Just like most men won't date a girl taller than them, most girls won't date a guy shorter than them. Those are both generalisations, of course, but I wouldn't say one gender cares about height more than the other. Shit like OP's pic exists for both genders
I'm 6ft3 - 6ft4. I much prefer short girls over tall girls. 5 - 5ft5 is probably ideal for me. I have a preference for Asian women though which probably influences it. Still, regardless of ethnicity, I prefer the girl to be short. I have nothing against taller girls and I would date one if she was right for me, but short is best.
I am only 6'1 but I have been with very shirt girls and it was honestly a hassle in bed. Positions are generally much easier with someone closer to your height or at most have a head shorter
4chan standards of manlet are quite warped for two reasons:
1. Self-image issues: lots of guys here have low self-esteem and a low sense of self-worth, so they are constantly self-conscious about inadequacy regardless of their personal features. In other words, they feel marginalized and insignificant no matter how tall they are or what their penis size is so in their mind everyone else must be taller, stronger, richer, more charismatic and has a bigger cock.
2. They shit on others to feel better about themselves and so they will mock others for being "manlets" with "tiny dicks" if they're not >6ft tall with 7inch+ penises.
In any case, it's always a grass-is-greener thing. Girls are just as susceptible to the Napoleon complex as men, in my experience. The short chicks always feel like other people are overlooking them or belittling them (whether it's actually true or not) so they overcompensate. In their eyes, tall girls are more authoritative, are taken more seriously, and have more potential for that elegant, ephemeral beauty.
On the flip side, tall girls often go one of three paths to compensate for not being cute and feminine in the way that small girls manage easily.
I've seen less women inclined to date men who are shorter than them because it's "less masculine," whereas there is no stigma behind being a taller woman.
Yeah, there's a degree to height standards for both genders, but my point is that, from what I've seen, is that the standards for men are much more lackadaisical.
See, from what I've seen, guys are are equally likely to want a girl shorter than them. Both of us are going by anecdotal evidence, but I really can't think of any and I've never really heard of any (non-misogynistic) explanations as to why one would be more picky than the other.
Well yeah. I don't take terms like manlet seriously. He's just a guy of about 5'10", which is pretty average where I live. My point was that the picture wasn't really depicting anything accurate
I see way more women exclusively date men 6'0" and up than men exclusive date girls of any height. Girls care about height more than men while men tend to prioritize other physical features.
Depends on the guy really. I'm like 4'10 and my boyfriend is 6'1 though. Sometimes it's a bit weird since I look approximately 13 and he looks approximately in his late twenties too on top of the height difference, but it's cool.
I had a tutorial of about 20 or so girls about a year ago. It was a pretty chill tutorial group and somehow, the topic of height preferences came up. Literally every girl said that they wouldn't mind a guy's height as long as he was taller than them. Not one said anything about a minimum height like 6'0" like you're suggesting is common among girls. In my experience, what you say is just untrue.
I've never really seen anyone have preferences for a big height difference, male or female. I feel like anyone who does has never had to deal with the inconvenience of a significant height difference
Maybe most men dont and im willing to admit I may be the exception, but I think about height in women a lot. Its a major part of attraction for me.
I like tall girls, I prefer them. Why ? all things being equal tall girls are literally more to love. You get everything that short girls have plus long sexy legs and that sometimes that slender victoria secret angle look. Im a big leg man
Then theres the secondary benefits of tall women. Im 6'4" and my first gf was 5'8" no biggie standard height difference shit here. then I dated a 5'10" girl, she wore heels often and it was like night and day. For the first time in my life I could walk together with my arm around her waist sitting comfortably. When I turned to look at her I looked her right in the eyes, not the top of her head. I felt like I could just lean in and kiss her. Since then ive dated some short girls, smallest being 5'. Talk about being awkard in every situation; hand holding, forget about it. Between her shortness and big curly hair from above I could never make out expressions on her face. I tried to move in for smooth kiss on our only date, nope, smooth as an lanky stork feeding a baby chick. Felt like a giraffe trying to drink from a shallow pool
besides the obviousness that all of the pictures are made by women and not men.
Absolutely true. I'm 5'11" and I wish I would be short and cute. I will never be tossed around easily by my man (unless he's /fit/, or I get anorexia) , I will never look cute in short dresses. It would be great if someone would dare to belittle me for a change, but they are probably scared I'll kick them in the nuts with my sky-high stilts. Height envy is a real thing.
On the other hand, I see short girls wearing high heels all the time. So I guess there must be something great about having your head up in the clouds.
I've always dated girls that were around 5'9" or so, and I've always seen taller girls as being sexy, but on new years I danced with a girl who was like 5'2" and I could see a girl that size being fun as fuck in bed.
I see all this chat about short girls and tall girls but where do average height-ed girls fit in? 5'5"-5'7"
Are they well liked or do they lack the pros short girls and tall girls have? ;_; 5'6" grill what dooo
It's all fun and games until she feels comfortable with you, then gains 15 pounds and she looks like a bloated tomato. The shorter the girl, the more horrific even marginal weight gain appears. Don't do it bro. Stick with the taller chicks.
Short women do make you feel like a real man, and the sex has a more vigorous, primal mood
And short daughters are adorable. And shorter women have more estrogen, prettier faces, greater sexual loyalty, and overall more feminine attitudes compared to tall women.
But your sons will be MANLETS. So no.
Generally ugly as fuck because testosterone isn't very helpful to women aside from making them dangerously horny all the time. Manfaces and manhands. Take it from someone who used to take photos.
Models are selected for height because they can display clothing better. And there's less of a "yuck" factor for the overwhelmingly homosexual designers.
I had a very small gf, an average height gf and my current one is tall like me.
While the small gf was indeed the cutest, the height difference made everything shitty. Being in public i always had to lean down to hear what the fuck she was saying, and in bed a lot of positions just didnt work that well with her.
So no short gfs for me anymore, if i can help it.
Meh. I'm 5'8" and my gf is 5'6". I don't have to bend over for her, and she doesn't have to tiptoe. Even though I like arching her back, or she likes to tiptoe so I bend back during a kiss.
There's this 5'1" pixie who I was really into, but now I can't really imagine myself bending down to her that much, unless I picked her up each and every time, and groped her ass.
You can throw them around in bed. Unless she is a small moon. Then she bounces too.
im 5'2 and it just feels like theres been a dramatic turn on the general opinion on short women
it used to feel very undesirable around me and i was treated almost childish and for the last half decade or so its become a feature that people remark as attractive constantly
i wish i knew where the cultural trend changed since my other short friends describe the same feeling as well
but its definitely not anime, it doesnt have that powerful of an influence on western cultures
my bf is 6'5 and im 5'2 but admitedly all of his exes are 5'9+ and all my exes were always less than 5'10 so we're definitely a bizarre match not just in height but compared to our former preferences too
i'm 193 cm/ 6.3 i believe. And the last girl i dated was quite short. I don't think it matters that much both length have their things. However someone taller than me is something i would dislike.
Maybe you're blind, but there have been more tall guys stating that they like short girls in this thread.
It just isn't a generalized preference. From personal experience, weaboo and insecure guys are the ones who usually prefer the short girls.
I think you're deluded by social networks because of pics like the OP's. Either that or you girls have always been self-conscious about being short, making it up in your mind that you're less desirable.
You've kind of proved OPs point. Read the comments. The men 6'3" and up either don't care or perfer girls closer to their own height, even the ones that find short women feel the same.
I'm 5'9" and my husband is the king of manlets at 5'10". Usually it's just fine, as there is no physical awkwardness from the height difference. Sometimes I find myself looking at tall men out in public, wishing he was that same height. Oh well, can't have everything I guess.
im 183cm and pref Girls below ~170cm
and i pref small Girls also. not because of my height but because smaller Girls tend to have better proportions and therefore look better.
also the smaller they are and the easier i can do shenanigans with her.
f.e. my gf loves to do the dirty dancing move where you hold the Girl over your head.
ist easy and not dangerous with her 50-55kg while if she would be taller and weigh like 60kg+ this could go very wrong when done on solid ground
maybe ist also nice when going out and she wants to wear heels that she is still smaller than me
I'm 5'2, extremely attracted to taller men, like 6'2-6'4. My ex was 6'4, people made comments all the time, but we both LOVED the height difference. So much fun in bed, I love being lifted up and tossed around. Dated a 6'2 guy, we thought it was fun too - still had to stand on a chair or the to kiss him unless we sat down, but we didn't mind. Never had a tall guy having a problem with a height, only tall girls who keep saying I should "stick to my own" because they're bitter about us "stealing" the tall guys. I don't mind shorter guys, it's just a preference with the taller ones, I'm not out there to make it tougher for other girls lel
I hate that it has to be a competition, though. Like I have a tall friend with AMAZING long legs, she's very slim, tall and has a model body. I have another tall friend who has man-ish features, broad shoulders and isn't model-esque. Height isn't a dealbreaker for girls, you can be gorgeous or ugly either way.
>dating short girl
>I never really cared about height
>neither did she, but now says she likes having a boyfriend that's quite a bit taller than her but not a fucking giant
>I'm just right for her
I'm a big cunt. I've always tended to attract smaller women but I wouldn't say they're my type or anything. I tihnk this is mostly a short women wanting tall men thing than a tall men wanting short women thing. If I could have two absolutely identical women (except for height) who were both my absolute ideal human companion, I'd choose the taller one.
I'm not short or tall (5'5" average) but whenever a guy tells me he likes short girls he becomes this in my mind. I dont know why but it just happens
male, same here
every time someone acts like they have pick of the litter when the don't conjures up a gross image
people who actually have pick focus on personality, because they can get numerous attractive people, and personality is the biggest factor in how well the affair will go
