    I admire shorter men who are with statuesque women, says something about their character to have gone against the trend.

    Haha, It's just on the subconscious mind of girls. I would obviously like a taller guy to bend down and hug me instead of a short one which i had to be the one bending when i need the 'protection' instead of him. And taller guys are mostly hotter

    I am seeing a guy at the minute and he's shorter than me, only by a little bit but I would prefer if he was taller or even just didn't slouch so he was the same height ha ha. Aslong as they aren't obviously smaller than me it doesn't bother me too much.

    Because:

    a) Short guys have small ****s.
    b) Short guys have no testosterone like the post on first page pointed out.
    c) Manlets bring teh lulz.
    d) They have no fighting ability because height = fighting ability, durr.
    What is the short threshold?

    I love it when he presses me and I can smell his neck. :love:

    Unfortunately, this means the guy has to be at least 6ft1/2, because I'm almost 5'10.

    Yeah I agree with that_time. Having to kiss downwards feels a bit weird but being small myself I dont usually have that problem. I suppose it does depend on a girls height. Some girls might prefer a guy to be smaller so she doesnt have to wear heels or because she likes being the taller one. Everyones different. All my previous ex's were just above my height and I found that ok. But dont think all girls like guys to be taller cos they dont.

    Still a pretty stupid thing to say.

    I'm taking it that you're referring to you're age outburst, if so, I agree whole heartedly.

    I think the reason why girls like taller guys is sub-concious instinct. An animal's main aim in life is to reproduce and pass on it's genes. And to do this it selects the best male possible. A taller male would be more likely to survive in the wild, he must've had enough food to grow properly which might also show intelligence (in getting the food), and so he would have better genes to pass on to the offspring than a shorter male. So a taller male equals better offspring and so is more desirable.

    And even though humans have evolved to a stage where you don't need to be tall to survive it is still a primitive instinct to choose a taller male over a shorter one.

    Hard luck shorties :ahee:

    Personally i am 6'4", and to console the shorter people: at least you don't have to hear the "hows the weather up there" and "so when are you going to start playing basketball" jokes.

    Still love being tall though

    Also has anyone noticed that there are 4+ Mikes in this thread..

    (shudders)

    25 and still confusing "you're" with "your". Time to call it quits on that so-called degree, tit.

    If you even are a student that is. Wouldn't surprise me if you're just some working-class bell end who likes to perv on the profile pictures of 18 year olds.

    Well men are generally taller then women so it makes sense that women would generally be with a taller man.

    This is in response to a previous thread.....I was just wondering, and i'm not trying to generalize or anything like that.... Girls wanting their partners to be to be taller than them is something that most ppl just accept but recently i've wondered why???........why do gils like taller guys???(obviously it varies frm girl to girl) but in general?
    Because I think of boyfriends as being the protective one in the relationship.

    It might sound stereotypical but you wouldn't expect the woman to scoop the man into her arms and flee from danger would you?

    In th same way I like the man to be taller so that he looks like he could protect the lady :bigsmile: Might sound daft but this is honestly protection is something that is important to me in a relationship :o:

    Protection :ninjagirl: (and cosy hugs..)
    Leaning down to kiss a guy would be very weird too :dontknow:

    And because i'm 5ft3 too so if a guy was smaller than me he'd be pretty small.
