    I'd maybe understand if she was taller than you but she's 5'1! Why does she need someone who is waaaaaay taller than her, it'd just look stupid! You're probably the perfect height for her. And anyway, I really don't see why height is an issue anyway. 5'5 isn't even short! I'm 5'4 and it's not exactly short.

    5'5 isn't that short to be fair if you are big somewhere else Move on from her because there will be plenty more opportunities for you.

    It's just an excuse, instead of bluntly saying "I don't really like you". That what all "you're not my type" excuses are. If she fancied you, your height wouldn't matter.
    That doesn't make much sense. His height clearly affects whether she will fancy him or not.

    Tbh I don't understand why people call this "shallow". I don't see the problem with it...

    Physical attraction clearly matters in sexual relationships. Why would a girl go out with someone she isn't physically attracted to? And everyone knows that height is a hugely important factor in how physically attractive a boy is.

    It is the assumption that this is the only reason she rejected him. I.e. that he is perfect in every way, except for his height, and that she would rather date a less perfect guy who happens to be taller.

    Yeah, but she can't help what she's attracted to. If a man thought a girl was nice, but didn't find her face attractive, he probably wouldn't date her.

    What can I say? This forum likes to signal its virtue.

    Just like threads that ask "Do X generally like Y?" You can always expect the first or second reply to be something like "Some do, some don't, don't generalise ppl it is $current_year"

    Well. Would you want to date a girl you didn't find attractive? I doubt it. As already said some people find height a dealbreaker. It's crap but not every girl is like that. I like it when a guy is slightly taller than me but never been turned off by a guy being under 6ft.

    Don't know why this is an AMA, there's nothing to ask. I'm sure you'd much rather want sympathy.

    Cheer up man, you got rejected by a short girl with daddy issues. Move on.

    forget about this heightist chick; there are plenty of lovely ladies out there who are looking for more than over-developed skeletons.
    "Over-developed"? I take high offense to this statement. Better than lanky though so eh :laugh:

    i asked out my crush, who was smaller than me in terms of height. She is like 5'1 and i'm 5'5, and in response to me asking her out, she said she prefers someone over 6'0. bit down but meh.
    Next time you see her and she's dating a guy who's 6ft please do ask her this question.

    'So how does it feel like kissing a tree?' Obviously her response is gonna be something very blunt like 'what do you mean?' Or 'are you insulting my boyfriend?'

    You'll just be like 'I'm curious, do you use a ladder or what?..' and she'll eventually get pissed off and you can walk away like a boss. 👌🏽

    next.

    NEVER get hung up on a rejection. Simply acknowledge the feelings and then move on, it's not worth the mental/emotional energy drain to think about someone that doesn't think of you in a romantic/sexual way. Someone else definitely will.
