    Size differences in relationships come about because the girls want to feel small and dainty and feminine and the men big and strong and masculine. The metric isn't 'tall' per se, as much as it is 'taller than me'.

    There are also 'protector' connotations but these seem less widely applicable, else we'd see girls wanting gross height.

    Women won't admit it publicly, but height is probably the #1 trait they look for, along with confidence.

    I am 6'0. Height certainly plays a big role when it comes to attractiveness. I find it quite hard to feel femenine just because I am taller than most people. I love taller and bigger guys as I am not the skinny type either, my hips are very wide. However, I've only dated men that were shorter than me. They did not have the height, but they had the confidence and a great personality. As long as you have those two things, height is not that important, although it is a very common preference.

    Ngl some guys who are tall, only feel awesome next to short guys because they lack confidence and that's their only way of showing it
    well yeah, in all kinds of situations, we have to find someone who makes us stand out in a positive way - smart people feel more self confident in their intelligence when around less intelligent people.

    Chill, mate, you're 15. I was about the same height at your age, I hit a growth spurt when I was about 17 or 18 and I was 6'2'' by the time I was 19
    Did you start lifting at the age you were going through a growth spurt? I wanna know so I don't decrease my chances of growing.
