    HANG ON...

    This thread is about 'HEIGHT' and not what someone's face looks like.

    Everyone has different tastes in appearance so whatever init
    But short height is unattractive in men. Just like an ugly face is unattractive.

    You are of course right that different people have different tastes, but short height is pretty universally considered unattractive in men.

    Anon makes a good point. It's a natural instinct to be attracted to taller males as it means their offspring will be taller and hence have a better chance of surviving/success.

    Except 5'7" isn't 'short'. It's just below average.

    Except that is flawed thinking, as offspring also has a chance of being short. If a short person has short family members and the tall person has short family members then it is highly likely that the offspring is also going to be short.

    You know the average is 5'9/5'10. Therefore that is considered tall
    Also being taller than woman can mean various things, compare a 5'0 woman to a 5'1 man. He is taller than her.

    If she wants to be wearing heels while he's taller than her, I believe that is a superficial statement. I mean, if you're a really tall guy, why would you want to be bending down and hurting your back just to kiss someone? I would prefer a woman taller, or preferably near my height just for the convenience.

    Yes. Growing up, my neighbour was significantly larger (in height and weight) than her husband so I feel like I missed the stigma most girls have about mens height.

    Yes. My boyfriend is shorter than me, though only by an inch (I'm 5'7, he's 5'6). I'm not too bothered about height, since I don't actually develop feelings for people until I'm doing semi-romantic/close friend stuff like cuddling and hand holding, I usually fall for my friends, and I don't pick them based on height.

    When 70% of tsr won't date you , you wonder how much closer it is to 100% in RL

    Height isn't everything, I've been told I'm tall but I never get any girls.
