    observing girls and their height, it would appear that, unless a girl is extremely attractive (model standard), it's the shorter girls (5'2 - 5'8 or thereabouts) that gets all the attention from guys. girls who are 5'9/10 and over get less attention in clubs - only from the really tall guys - and find it hard to wear big heals because they reach beyond 6 foot in them. in the long term, a relationship may feel awkward unless there's a really strong connection between the guy, just because it looks and feels wrong for a girl to be taller than the guy.

    anywho, i've gone on long enough. what are everyone's thoughts? is there a thing as being 'too tall' for a girl?

    Personally, I like tall guys. My boyfriend is only an inch or two taller than me though. But if he was taller, it means I could wear higher heels lol. I know a really tall girl (well, she seems tall to me lol), and she gets less attention in clubs, but she is attractive. So, yeah, it might be a generl thing, but it doesn't bother me personally

    It goes down to the fact that generally, guys like to be taller than their girl so they can feel all manly and protect their smaller partner. Plus it can be intimidating for guys to have to tip toe to actually kiss a girl so yeah..

    I would. Same height or taller is fine.
    Shorter would make me feel a bit self-conscious though if im honest!

    It really depends, I'm quite tall myself, but girls that are around 6ft don't really appeal to me at all, seems as if the majority of taller girls I see have pretty bad posture aswell.

    "internet people" you make it sound bad like "sand people" (tunsken raiders) they scare easily but they will be back and in greater numbers too (in the voice of alec)

    could always just wear the heels and be the tallest?

    I'm a 6ft girl and thats what i do!

    Im practically the tallest in the room most of the time anyway- may as well make it indisputable.

    Im 6ft 1 and when I was younger I used to hate it...
    But now I'm ok with my height.
    I never find it a problem finding a boyfriend... Ive dated guys who have been 6ft 4 - 6ft 6 and they all say they love having a girl who is tall. My current boyfriend is 6ft... but he likes me wearing heels. So I usually go out with him in 4inch heels. I look massively taller than him but it doesn't bother either of us
    Its just about confidence and how you carry yourself. Being tall means you have to have good posture and not try and hide your height
