Why don't tall men choose to date tall women?Page 18 of 23    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23)
I can tell you one thing, I'm quite tall and I have dated a fair number of tall women (6ft and over.) I will say that when I do date a tall woman they love to break out the 4 inch stilettos that they rarely get to wear out, from my perspective it's rather strange being almost eye to eye with a woman as I'm rarely eye to eye with anyone let alone a date. This could lead some tall guys away from tall women. As for me the only thing that scares me away is personality.

I got so tired of dating those tall manly supermodels, I mean after you date one manly supermodel you've see them all.

It must just be you, because I don't find this to be true, I have no problem getting the attention of men as tall as 6'4". The tall men that have rejected you may just have a preference of short women, it's ok get over it, people spend way too much time worrying about the ones they can't catch that they actually miss out on the ones that they can!! I know this may sound like jibberish(yes I'm hung over) but it rings true if you can be honest with yourself.

A woman's height makes no difference to me. Most women I have dated have been much shorter than me because of the laws of probability. About 95% of women are shorter than 5' 9". But I would have no problem dating a woman that is around my height or taller if the opportunity presented itself.

Because the tall women will quickly figure out that I'm 6'2 WITH shoes on.

The shorter ones think I'm really tall:)

Why won't women date men shorter than they are generally speaking?

Because a tall man has more choices as all the short women want to date him too. A 5-9 man can date a woman 5-7 and down if he is lucky. They do have to wear the 4 in heels and still look up at the man.. While 6-2 man can date anyone 6ft and down.
Every woman 4-11 and up want to date him. So the tall woman better have something good going on or other women would catch him. Its all about supply and demand.

Most men just prefer women shorter than themselves. I'm one of the exceptions in that I like very tall women. Something about long legs,I guess. I've dated several women close to or over 6 feet,and my current girlfriend is 6'4",2 inches taller than me.

I'm sure there are some men that feel this way, But in general I think height is more important to women. Even if a man has a mild preference for shorter women, I doubt a large percentage of men would turn down an physically attractive tall woman just because of her height.

It's tough to beat being my height (5'4") and slow dancing with a tall woman.
Just saying. :D

Well, if I was a short man and was dating a tall woman. Then she couldn't get mad at me for staring at her chest lol. I mean they are at eye level.
Actually, now that I think about it, I think there is a fetish out there for taller women. "Amazon" fetish or something like that. Then you got the extreme, which is giantess fetish.

As for the topic of tall men not being into tall women, I think it is about bodytype preference is all. I think it is about an individuals being interested in short women rather than a generalized "all tall men" statement. To put it another way, I think it is just a few peoples preference, not representive of the whole.

I honestly think most guys will look at weight and personal hygene long before they think about a woman's height. I'm around 5'8 and I've dated women that were 5'2 and 6'2.

I must live in the land of short women. I see plenty that are close to my height, but half my age. When they get close to my age, they're a foot shorter than me, but make up for it by being a foot farther around.

My sisters and a cousin are tall, 5'9" and they married men over 6 feet. Most men need to feel taller, bigger than their partners as it makes them feel superior or more masculine I guess. Tall men are in demand by both taller and shorter women but when I see 5ft women with 6'2" guys, I do wonder about that. I agree that at 6'1" you are very tall but I have two nieces who are 6ft and they found men the same height. They don't ever wear heels though.

I would feel uncomfortable with a man shorter than me but not all women feel this way. I am 5'4" and I prefer men at least 5'8". However if the guy is well built and has other things going on then 5'7" wouldn't worry me. Women think about not wanting short sons as they have a harder time in life very often. Asian women and others of the petite races often marry men who are considered short by Western standards and this is often why the men get the mail order brides or go to these countries to find a partner.

Agreed. Being obese or having bad breath / body odor are dealbreakers for me. Being tall is not.

Most tall women have big feet, and I'm not a feet guy. But if she's able to contort her body to put her feet behind her head (while in the bedroom), I might overlook it.

Scrolls found at the depths of the sea told story that it's not the ratio of height of Man vs Woman, but more that of the Winkie vs Woman.

A big girl must require a big.. dinner, this would put a certain % of the tall-man market at a hampered enthusiasm.

If you want a tall man you may need to increase you approach to more aggressive and less of the passive(waiting game), but not to much you might scare him away (he's scared already you see)

I once dated a girl that was a bit taller than me and it was fine. When she wore heels she looked much taller and I did not care. I am sure that some guys would not like a woman taller than them but usually the man being shorter is a bigger problem with the girls. Multiple studies on human sexual preferences claim that most women want a guy who is taller than them because it fills a "protector" role reinforced by the need to perpetuate stronger genes.

I've dated a lot of women that were taller than me. I'm only 5'8 and I've dated women over 6 feet. Never seemed to be an issue and they never felt less attraction for me because they were taller. They could even wear heels and I wouldn't mind. It's like Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love.

I am 5'0, but that doesn't stop really tall men (6'0+) from messaging me. I think the tallest was 6'6- which is too much and I did not reply. I actually prefer shorter men 5'6-5'8 range, but they rarely contact me and when they do, they don't say much. =(

Sounds like a bad guess to me.

Do you actually see a lot of men mention in their profiles that a woman must be smaller AND shorter than them?

Because I actually do see a lot of women mention in THEIR profiles that a man must be taller than them, or taller than a specific height, or at least a specific height.

So I see the height problem as more a woman thing than a man thing.


I am 5'4" and I prefer men at least 5'8". However if the guy is well built and has other things going on then 5'7" wouldn't worry me.


Yes, I have heard that being well built takes all the worry away about an inch.


Women think about not wanting short sons as they have a harder time in life very often.


Yes, and this is an example of why they might have a harder time:


I would feel uncomfortable with a man shorter than me


Better to solve the problem than perpetuate it.
