Do tall guys (6 foot+) like short girls?

I'm 5'3" but all the guys I like tend to be 6'0" or taller. My last boyfriend was 6'2"...and he always needed to pick me up to kiss. I guess it's cute at first, but I felt so short next to him, always needing to literally look up to him ;)

For all you tall guys out there, would you ever date a short chick?

    No, stay away from me you genetically inferior womanlet.
    /sarcasm

    Honestly, I don't think it matters provided that you aren't borderline dwarf
    then you'd be in the wrong realm

    I'm 6' and my girlfriend is 5'5". It's not bad at all, I find the height difference cute even two years later into our relationship.

    I've never had a girlfriend and I'm 17, so I guess you shouldn't hear my opinion since I have the bar very low.

    Short people, in general, make me feel awkward, and it is hard for me to convince myself that we're the same age and maturity level. It feels like they're kids, and even when they don't seem childlike, they seem overly fragile. It makes me think I might accidentally break them, even though that's pretty ridiculous. I particularly hate seeing pictures of myself next to short people.

    So, to answer your question, I personally would be unlikely to date someone as short as you are. Fourteen inches is too large a barrier. 5'8"-ish is around where I begin to feel like we're of the same species.

    Whoa - that was harsh.

    I don't mind short girls. I'd prefer someone tall, but eh ... it's not as if I have a lot of options.

    I'm not 6+ feet tall but there's an eight inch difference between my girlfriend and I. She's 5'2, I'm 5'10, I make fun of her shortness from time to time.

    I'm not trying to be harsh. I just literally cannot see eye-to-eye with someone who is as tall as I was when I was eight.

    You do realize the average height for a woman in the U.S. is 5 ft 4 in?
  • 98beebee98beebee Posts: 1,662Registered User Senior Member
    Yeah, I'm above average height, but I feel so short- 5'8" isn't realistic for every woman you meet.

    "Not the same species"? That's degrading to all women below your desired height.

    I'm 5'0 (5'1 with my huge hair, I guess), and this guy who currently wants to date me is ~6'2. I always feel awkward talking to him unless we're sitting down or standing 3+ feet away from each other...
  • MalikwalMalikwal Posts: 151Registered User Junior Member
    Personally I find any girl close to my height scary actually and I'm only 5' 11" 3/4 haha, almost 6 foot. Shorter is better for me

    It's SOOOO much worse if you're a short guy... from what I have seen short attractive girls never have any problems.

    So? Just to clarify...

    The question was: "For all you tall guys out there, would you ever date a short chick?"

    My answer was: "Not me, personally, because I can't connect with small, fragile things that seem either like children or like a separate species."

    The question was not: "Can you lie and make short, small people feel like they are universally attractive to all tall people? Make sure to give very evasive reasons so that, even if you won't lie, you don't let us know what your actual opinion is."

    My answer was not: "Yes, I love short people. Please think that every really tall person wants to date you. Please do not consider how great it makes tall girls feel every time someone tall enough for them chooses to date someone half their height."
