    This thread probably already exists but out of curiosity how tall would the perfect guy be in your mind? :awesome: I hear a lot of women mentioning that height is a very important factor when picking guys they like but is this truly the case? :P

    Well I think it depends on how tall the girl is. I'm 5'3 so height doesn't really bother me because it's not often for a boy to be smaller than me. I guess when you see a couple it always seems to look a bit better if the boy is taller than the girl. I'd say tall girls find it more important for boys to be taller than them because there's less chance for them. For example anyone above 5'5 would be fine for me, so it's harder for a girl who's 5'10 to find someone taller than her.

    Then I dont see how people find it fine to question height. You can change your weight but you can't do the same to your height.
    THIS.
    A guy can't control his height but a girl can (mostly) control her weight. I don't think it's unreasonable for a guy to reject a girl for being an unhealthy weight (high or low, covering all grounds here)

    I don't think there's a perfect height. You ideal partner could be short or tall, it really depends on who they are as a person... There is an ideal height though. I reckon the ideal height for a short girl like me is 6ft1 or 6ft2, I seem to like tall guys more

    I'm 5"5 but I generally like tall guys 6"+ lol
    To each, his own

    For me, it's not a necessity for guys to be tall; I won't turn down a guy just based on height alone, cos I feel like that's stupid.
    I completely agree with you:daydreaming:

    6'2 - 6'5 I'd say. Although I am a taller than average female at 5'10. Not to say I wouldn't date anyone shorter, but over 6'2 is my preference.

    You're a tad too tall for me. A friend is 5ft 11. If he's sat down, he's the perfect height.

    5'6-5'11 would be best, but it's not set in stone and I can honestly say I don't meet a guy and think his height is not right, unless he's really tall and it's logistically a nightmare.

    Short guys... get the hell over it!

    People always say 'black girls are ugly... black girls blah blah' hundreds of threads on the student room, articles about how ugly we are. I'm not crying about it.

    Thats like, not everyone is going to like you.

    Stop being entitled.
    There was a black girl at my old secondary school who had amazing legs :coma:

    I just want to be with someone who's taller than me, I did go out with someone who was shorter and it didn't work out, mainly because he was a grade A prick more than his height :lol:
    My boyfriend is 6'10" and we've been together 15 months, d'aww. I'm 5'9" and only wear heels if I'm going out with him

    Are we devolving to simplistic apes that actually concern ourselves with height, weight, femininity, masculinity, ect?

    Wake me up when we evolve past the primate stage... xD

    Not going to lie, I'm a heightist. Which is bad, I know, as nobody can help it. As a tall girl, I have had too many hot, nice shorter guys approach me who I have turned down. My friend says I'm shallow, but being tall you feel insecure having to loom over everyone anyway, so having a taller partner is a nice break. I'm not really strict, but any taller than my height (5'8") and you've got a good chance! However, I really don't understand when girls who are like 5'2" say 'no-one under 6ft'. It's like, damn girl, go for someone your own height! Leave the tall guys to the tall girls so we can make Olympians
    Very similar to what I was trying to convey last week in my opinion on a different thread - very nicely written . But I got slaughtered for having an opinion. Preferably would date someone who is 5ft 11+, not keen on those shorter than myself. However I don't doubt they are nice gents.
