I'm 5ft1

The guy only has to be taller than me (which isn't difficult). IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR

Yeah but whilst eg long hair on girls may be a preference, I've never heard a guy say "I'd never go out with a girl with short hair".

Whereas for women, a guy's height seems like a requirement rather than a preference. Essentially every girl says they wouldn't date a shorter guy. I just find it strange that it is emphasised so much, but I guess it's just hardwired evolutionary preferences.
Conversely, I've never heard a girl say "I'd never go out with a short guy".

I don't think it's a requirement, more of a preference. I know that for myself, whilst I'd prefer a tall guy, if I liked someone enough I'd go out with them regardless of height.

But several girls on this thread have said that... Read the thread, several have said that it's a requirement that the guy is taller than them. Friends of mine in real life have said it too.

I'm 5"2 so I don't think I'd want to date anyone taller than 5"10; 5"7-8 is probably my ideal because if a guy is too tall I find him a tad intimidating.

I've heard it many times tbh

If we take into account what is said online, I wouldn't know where to start talking about them tbh

How come this matters so much to girls? I'm not criticising, since you can't help what you're attracted to, but it seems like basically no girls would date a guy shorter than them.
I think just as men want a good looking girl, women want a taller person like that.

I dunno but from what I've gathered a lot of men wouldn't want to date a woman taller than them either. I suppose hypothetically if met a guy I liked and he was a bit shorter than me it wouldn't be a deal breaker; however I'm only 5'4 so most men are taller than me anyway.

I'm 5"1 and I'm not growing either, in heels I can get to 5"4 so basically anything taller than that. I mean it doesn't look good if the woman is taller than her man

6ft 2+ is most popular option, I'm at least 6ft 3, get no attention at all.

Does this mean there's something wrong with my face or that I'm just a ****? Genuinely curious...

it means you may not be attractive facially to many girls and/or your lacking personality wise plus you may not be making moves on girls which you have too.

It does in that I prefer guys who're taller than me and ideally they'd be like 6'2/taller (I'm 5'8).

There's stuff that's far more important though and I've been with guys who are the same height as me, because it wasn't something that bothered me when I got to know them

Meh doesn't matter to me, I don't care for any of the girls I know so naturally I'm not going to be making any moves. Just wondering how I seem to be invisible despite how I have some sort of supposed advantage.

Must be the personality, I do seem to have a knack for offending random popular girls... hmm...

5 ft 10 is about reasonable for me i think. i'm 5 ft 7 so just anyone who is a bit taller than me is good, but i'm not fussy.

i dont mind if a guy is shorter than 5'10 tho, but there has to be something VERY special about you if youre 5'9 or under :angelblush:
If he was that special, what have you got to offer?
