It's not all women that have a preference for height.

They all do.


I have a mild preference for a taller man. But I can overlook height if I liked other qualities about him. Overall many women probably have some type of preference or requirement for a taller man. Not all though. I know women that don't care about height.

From what I have seen, most women online want a taller man. OLD sites like Match have a section where a person can put the preferred height. A woman's minimum height requirement is almost always taller than what she is. Sometimes it is several inches taller than she is. Offline women ( in general ) are more flexible about height. OLD often raises people expectation levels due to having more potential options.

One of the most idiotic reasons I've heard from some women why they don't want to date shorter men is that they want to give their sons the chance to be tall.

Yeah, I think usually that's to justify why they're attracted to them. It's not like they'd be turning down Tom Cruise because they want their son to be taller. It's what they're sexually attracted to... but don't want it to sound bad, I guess.

I have a mild preference for a taller man. But I can overlook height if I liked other qualities about him.

I think to some degree that can be a case, but many times a gal won't know other qualities about him when people-watching. But yeah, women in general are less stringent on the height thing when they truly know the guy. It's still a factor, but it becomes back down to normal if it otherwise wasn't, generally speaking. For many women once they know him, as long as he's not shorter than she [in heels] and isn't noticeably one of The short guys in the room, it's not a big deal. But for short guys, they don't necessarily pass even that test. So they would have to find a gal where it statistically matters much less and/or she'd be otherwise ga-ga about him or something.

Can you imagine the wedding night surprises???

Her: OMG you're a midget
Him: WTF an A cup???????????


LOL! Match made in heaven!

I'm 6'2" and trust me, being tall definitely has it's advantages but also there are tradeoffs. Hitting your knees on car interiors or restaurant table poles, people leaving the cupboards open so you can ram your head into the corner, shower heads shooting water at your chest, having to wait for the freakishly-tall seat at amusement park rides to come around, tons of short women that don't like tall guys, having sexy legs for a guy, the list goes on and on.

That's a really really Weak argument though. It's like trying to make a midget feel better by saying "Oh, it balances itself out. Tradeoffs! You can crawl into small holes that other people can't get to, to save a kitten... You can dart around underneath people's radar to get away..." :)

You're 6'2", not 6'9". Everything isn't anti-form-fitted to you; you're not freakishly tall, hence it's not going to be common for you to need freakishly tall versions of this or that in life. Again, 6'2" not 6'9". :) One doesn't need to be even above average height to bump their head into open cupboards, have to make adjustments to a shower head (they do vary)...

And "tons of short women don't like tall guys" -- umm, more short gals are not going to like a guy under 5'8" than not like a guy who's 6'2". You have a better advantage @6'2", Hands. Down. :) And "having sexy legs for a guy" -- OK, how is that a bad thing? And how does 6'2" make that happen, as opposed to 5'10" -- the average white-male height in the US?

It's sweet, but I think you're trying to be too nice to short guys by exaggerating the "pitfalls" of being 6'2". :)

Everyone is entitled to have their own personal preferences. But I think if your criteria is that "he must be taller than me while I'm standing on two literal artificial heighteners", you're severely limiting your dating options while unwittingly planning to be alone for a very, very long time if not permanently.

Why you'd want to do that to yourself, only you can answer, but it's your life so you have to live it and deal with what comes from your choices.

To which "Chromus" do you refer? ^ ^ ^ ^
The Chromis, I know, (formerly with Ms Stanley cup), is happily engaged to be married, this year.
I can't speak for Chuck.

OT, I think the height and high heels issue is silly!

^^^^Nah, Lady, not our "silver fox" chromis. There's an updated user that changes his name from time to time and was using chromis_something or other a day or two ago. He's on to another username now.

Man. I spend *way* too much time on the forums to have noticed that...

Edit to add: Huh. He's actually talking about himself. In third person. Weird.

I'd take a shorter man with an attractive face over one who's over 6' tall with a plain one. Height is only a small part of the equation. Other factors are more important to me.

ClooneysTutor/WiccanDefecator/StaySoHard/ChromisViridis:

I don’t believe for a second that you have a girlfriend. If you did, she’s already dumped you. You spend waaay too much time in here making troll posts, disparaging other people’s height or appearance, and not contributing anything meaningful to threads. You're obviously a bored, bitter, and unhappy guy with zero social life. Pity.

"In the U.S. population, about 14.5 percent of all men are six feet or over. Among CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, that number is 58 percent. Even more strikingly, in the general American population, 3.9 percent of adult men are 6'2″ or taller."
Why Do We Love Tall Men? - Malcolm Gladwell
gladwell.com/blink/why-do-we-love-tall-men/

So there you have it ladies, what are the odds of finding a single guy in your age range among those statistics? Slim, very slim. I don't know how accurate these numbers are and they are only in the US but it is something to ponder.


One of the most idiotic reasons I've heard from some women why they don't want to date shorter men is that they want to give their sons the chance to be tall.


This is hilarious! It never crossed my mind as a reason to date or marry a man! Ironically, my ex is 6' 5"and my sons are both over 6' but you don't get to choose the traits your children will inherit. There are worse things to be inherited from a parent than being less than 6' tall.


Yes how many inches do heels add to a ladies height? Any how heels are very bad for feet.


Well, for me I'm about 6' tall with heels and yes, they are not good for your feet but I don't wear them to work. I'm sure you're glad you don't wear them but what man does not like to see an attractive woman with nice legs who is not just wearing heels but can actually walk in them? I like the way I feel in my Manolos...feminine, sexy, confident. You see, there's a reason I wear them...

^^^^ I truly enjoy Malcolm Gladwell's books.

I guess I am just used to being around men on the tall side whom I consider average. At 6' 3" I am an inch shorter than my brother. One cousin is 6' 5". My uncles were 6' 3 and 6' 4"; my father "only" 6' 1". My ex-wife is petite at 5' 2". When we visited my family as my children were growing up they tended to take me aside and ask me what was wrong with my kids - they were not growing. When we visited their mother's family it was more like "Oh, they are so big.". My daughter turned out to be 5' 9" and my son probably 5' 8" although he and his sister have an "agreement" they are both 5' 9". He is a little self conscience about his height probably because he is shorter than any male relatives on my side of the family. Frankly, throughout my life I have never given my height a second thought one way or the other.
