    Why are women wanting boys to be (super) TALL. Height is a characteristic feature, why does that matter. In fact, majority of all women would say 'no' to a guy who is nice as in good personality, pretty good looking, has his career set but sadly he is not 6 foot or over. Oh that being said I'm referring to myself I'm freaking 5' 8 and a half, is in that tall enough?!?!

    You are average and shouldn't have any problems.

    It seems to become a real problem if a guy is 5'5 or under.

    So have many girls rejected you because of your height?

    You say this but it works both ways, how many guys would date a girl taller than them? I hear a lot that I am 'just too tall'

    :yy: Thanks...7cm isn't much though...
    1.73m's about 2cm below average in the UK - it's definitely not ideal but not quite short enough to not get girls in general

    This is often said.

    Remember that plenty also like average height guys.

    I can't see your height being a problem in the future.

    Ok, well I haphazardly measured myself to around 180cm, give or take 2cm. Would that make him much smaller than me, because really it would be best for me to compare his height to my height
