    I'm 21 and my younger cousin (19) is always complaining about how guys avoid making eye contact with her and don't look her direction at all. She's dated a few good looking guys but the fact that guys apparently don't seem to look at her makes her feel insecure.

    She's a lot taller than me, I'm 5'3 she is 5'10 or 5'11. She is quite slim and has a really gorgeous face. I'm not just saying that because she is my cousin, she used to model and she has exotic cat shaped light eyes and full lips. She gets complimented practically everyday and is always told how pretty she is (I used to get jealous when we were younger but I'm fine now). I didn't believe her when she first told me so now these days when I go out with her I started noticing it, a lot of guys just completely avoid looking her way at all and I can't understand why. Are they intimidated or something?

    5ft10 might be tall for a girl, but it's not that huge in the grand scheme of things - I wouldn't be intimated by someone just because they're taller than me

    and why would anyone be intimidated by someone that's good looking?

    I had a feeling people would say this. I wish! Lol. I have short stubby legs, hardly the same as her long ones! I'm just wondering because I find it weird how guys just avoid looking at her.

    Curious as to what she looks like now [not asking fpr pic].

    Maybe some of them get a bit uncomfy in the out of their league syndrome, so they ignore her? She really wont have any problem of she smiles, that can be very disarming. I do have friends who have been quite lonely at times, but others who get more attention than they can handle. She shouldnt worry at all.

    At 6'2", 5'10/11" isn't really tall enough to be intimidating haha :cute:

    Generally, I'd expect that guys would generally feel a little uncomfortable if they're shorter than a girl though :lol:

    Insecurities. Intimidated is probably not quite the right word because of the violent connotations, but think about it like this: How many guys do you know that wouldn't get flustered or loose their cool if a victoria secret model started talking to them in starbucks. I guarantee there would be a lot of errs and umms...

    Average for a woman is 5'3 :eek:, she's actually taller than the average man in the UK. Although I think in a younger demographic the averages would probably be a bit higher.


    5'11 is pretty tall once she's out in heels, personally its about right for me but lots of shorter guys probably would be intimidated. It could also be a "oh my god that girl is unbelievable, don't stare... don't stare" type thought.

    Unrelated note: Is your cousin on TSR and / or single?
