    Truth is, when you're gay/bi, being petite is actually a good thing. With guys though, you just got to draw the line and make sure you're not falling into a pre-determined "role" when the relationship starts. Being petite need not mean you're the *****. But guys like to take advantage so you've just got to be firm (no innuendo intended).

    Truth is too, if you're a smaller guy like me we are like the girls in terms of preference, we do prefer to feel small and protected with a tall guy .
    Wait so you're gay? Do you get dominated in relationships with men then or?

    Tom put some points to you so I won't bore you, but medically speaking 6'2" is the best height to be studies have shown (with regards to less likely to contract certain conditions and disease). There's no doubt being taller helps getting girls as well.

    That average height is outdated, people are taller. I barely see anyone my height/shorter really.
    Do taller men not have a lower life expectancy as well though?

    Let's be real, it's no good being 6 ft 2 if you're ugly, a pussyclart or awkward.

    I'm assuming you've struggled with girls in the past and think it's partly down to your height, cool, but not all of us have that problem.

    It's a primal thing, when I am drunk I don't gravitate towards the shorter man. I choose the taller man everytime. The taller man in nature is more likely to be able to lead and protect and it demonstrates the greatest likelihood of thriving genes. Plus, I just love feeling small and protected, when the guy holds me close in his arms or bends over to kiss me it just feels amazing. God, the new year is bring out all of these mushy feelings .
    That was beautiful.

    I prefer the term "Bi", we went over this a few weeks ago on here. I hate the labels, I should be able to love a man and not be labelled. And no, I prefer to draw the line and not be dominated in the "balance of power" sense. I get to decide certain things, my other half decides other things. I am more of the homemaker than the protector, however. This way it works instead of people arguing over confused roles.

    That's generally if you go higher (6'4"+), medically speaking I'm fairly sure 6'2" is optimum though Isometrix will know this better than me. That's true, but the point I was making is that 6'2" ugly will get more girls than 5'10" ugly, and same applies if both are good looking.

    That's a false statement that I'll choose to ignore.

    Na man you're either gay or straight, you must be gay as you always talk about boys and their attractiveness. I'm guessing you cook and clean whilst the man of the house goes out to work, is his dinner on the table for him when he gets back?

    Height is incredibly overrated, as long as you're not 5ft1 or 6ft8 it shouldn't be an issue... I know a few girls who are taller than their boyfriends and it doesn't seem to bother them.

    Wilfred has a point though if you're bothered about height this much it just shows an insecurity and lack of confidence.

    I like girls too man, so therefore I am bi. And yes, I like cooking dinner for my partner but it does not mean I am any less empowered in the relationship. Guys with women must learn this too, it does not mean they are any less empowered. Instead they're too busy wanting to seem "alpha" and "lads" :rolleyes:. It's a turnoff. Me and my partner both like to share the cooking when we are at home together.

    Tom, do you find yourself being romantically interested in one sex more than the other but sexually interested in both? Just wondering can tell me to mind my own if you like.

    Height makes a difference to your life outcomes for sure. Check out the average height of US presidents or hedge fund managers etc, people just invariably associate it with manliness and so competence, testosterone etc. I think it just makes you more confident generally. Even walking down the street late at night you just dont think about getting robbed etc whereas someone of 5'9 probably would.

    It's not an achievement to be tall of course, but neither is having a high IQ or being attractive. Just the luck of genetics isnt it.

    Yeah maybe. I agree on some points, it takes a strong man to be able to take on a woman's role in a same sex relationship.

    Remember reading that in a huge corporate company (think it may have been banking) in the U.S. 95% of employees were over 6'0", and this is despite their being such a minority of people over this height in the country.

    Height and looks aren't that important you know. I doubt girls will automatically choose a taller guy over the shorter one.

    Looks definitely are. No doubt about it. And it's not even a bad thing.

    Yes they will it's a fact of life. Just like they'll choose the richer, more desirable one as well, just like guys are more shallow and will pick the prettier girl. Not saying personality doesn't matter but these things are just as if not more important.
