I'm 5'2 and most of my friends are 5'10 and when they wear heals they are like 6'0 while I'm like 5'5.... Anyway when we go out I realize that guys stay away from them... I don't know why, my friends are really attractive but guys don't seem to like girls that are tall. I like a guy who is my height or taller when I'm wearing heels. It's kind of a deal breaker if he's shorter I just have that moment of feeling older even if he's older I dont know it's complicated.

Short guys can certainly be sexy, but being short really is a disadvantage. I'm a short girl, but I am still initially more attracted to guys of average height or taller. There's something viscerally appealing about looking up and feeling rather enveloped by a guy.

My advice for short guys looking to attract women is
1) Be very fit (noticeably trim and cut) and well groomed.
2) Develop your confidence
3) Look for women in places other than clubs and bars. You're more likely to get together with a woman who perceives some personality and shared interests. Clubs and bars are shallow places and tend to attract those with shallower criteria. If you do go to clubs and bars, go with the outlook that you are just going to have a good time with your pals (guys or girls) and don't expect to pick anyone up. That way if you happen to beat the odds it will be a pleasant surprise.

I have a dear friend that is 5'4" and seems to be on the same boat as Damon's. But with this friend it's hard to say what came first, chicken or egg. He is short so he has a low self esteem. He's short and has low self esteem, so he rarely gets laid or gets dates. He has a low self esteem so he has never tried to get a good job, so, at 30 yo, he still lives at home. He doesn't have a good job, and he still lives at home... so he rarely gets laid. And it snowballs. I love the guy. Have known him most of my life, but it can be a downer going out with him.

I am 5'8" on a good day. My wife is 5'7". I think it was a combo of a descent enough face and a ridiculous amount of confidence that ever got me laid in my single years. At this point I am successful in my chosen career and get attention from women for that alone. I would bet that if I was even an inch or two shorter, it would have been a whole lot harder. Alas, confidence can go a long way in getting women to give you the time of day.

If I mess up please accept my apology as I have just joined Lush yesterday.

I am 5'10" and with heels I am just plain Tall!

So a man's height is really important to me. That doesn't mean there are not a lot of very nice guys that are less than tall, just not for me.

I see and know lots of petit girls that are <5'0 to 5'2" and 5'5" guys would be a good match.

Could there be other issues other than height?

i'm 5'9" without heels, so i definitely prefer a taller man. for me, its simply about wanting a man i feel can dominate me physically. i don't consider that any more superficial than a guy preferring a blonde to a brunette.

I know I'm not a gal, so my opinion won't matter as much, but I am 6'0" and my wife is about 5'7" or so. I just can't imagine a more perfect combination. When I hold her, she has to look up and I have to look down a little for us to gaze into each other's eyes.

It's just SO perfect. So, I think a height difference of about 5-6" is important, and I think I can safely speak for her on this too.

i'm 5'0" and i love tall guys.

i know what you're thinkin, "you're only 5' tall, EVERY guy is tall to you!" to that i say, "shut yer piehole & let me finish what i was tryin to say"

the shortest guy i've ever been with was 5'11", now that may not be considered very tall to some people, but keep in mind that's almost a foot taller than me.

the tallest guy i've ever been with was my last ex, he's 6'5" lol

That being said (with a giggle) I'm quite tall. I top out at 6ft and I love my heels.
I've rarely had a chance to date someone that's even remotely taller than I am. (That was worth being around)
And it would be a cold day in hell that I'll give up my heels for some shorter guys ego.
I don't have any issues with a guy that's close to my own heighth within a few inches.
A foot shorter though? Probably not.

It just looks awkward if I need to pick him up to give him a goodnight kiss.

I'm 5'5" and I wear heels A LOT because i feel so short when i'm wearing flats so i would appreciate it if my man was at least 3 inches taller than me but i kinda don't get too attracted to men that are really really tall like 6'3"+.

I lived in Hollywood and have met many stars. I'm 6'4" and the only one I ever looked up to was John Wayne.
I think I remember Eastwood being about my size, too.
I met Robert DeNiro when they filmed Casino in Las Vegas.
He can't be more than 5'7" and Pesci was tiny. Yet, they had plenty of babes. Probably standing on their wallets made them look taller.
So in my humble opinion, unless your a billionaire , or a movie star ..if you're a shorty the deck is stacked against you my friend.
On the other hand, I know some basketball players that couldn't get laid in a women's prison with a fist full of pardons...there is such a thing as too big!

I'm 5'6.5 (just)(the .5 is important !), and I must admit I've always wished I was 2.5 inches taller, at least. It just would have opened my "market" up a bit more. Most women like to wear heels, so when you are chatting to a girl who's 5'6, 5'7, 5'8, they've got 2 or 3 inch heels on, and yeah, they can be nice to me, but they'll always be looking towards my taller mates.And I'm not a big guy for my height, so women do generally prefer a guy who's taller, say over 5'10 and who is solider. I've worked out in the gym to build myself up a little bit, give a bit more muscle definition, but I'm not huge. I was always one of those lightweight guys. I do find it ironic that most of the guy's I used to hang out with in clubs and bars were 6'1 and above, sometimes I felt like a real shorty !!There was the occasional bonus with that, but yeah the majority of the time my taller mates picked up quite easily. Sometimes all they had to do was stand there in the bar, cause they were tall the girls could easily spot them, me I had to work hard!

I'm 5'10" and while it's not unheard of for guys to be shorter than me, most are as tall or taller. While I am more attracted to taller men, height is definitely not a deal-breaker for me. If I'm attracted to someone's personality...I couldn't less about their height.

I would prefer him be at least 4 inches taller than me, I'm 5-4 so, you know just a little feel of security.

Anything you think is sweet, I'm a little more than that.

Ok so i have a question in reverse sort of. Ok im 6'9 - 6'10 and i find it rather difficult at times to approach women because more than once in the past ive been told my size is intimidating. So ladies if you had never met the man and he was my size would he come off as intimidating?

I like taller better, but if I was dating again and a man shorter than I am asked me out i would not turn him down just because of his height. (i am 5'5)

the tallest man i ever dated was 6'2. i liked that he was really tall.

musicluver, if i was dating again and a man your height walked up to me and wanted to go out, it would not be intimidating to me. i think your height would be a plus and i would want to talk to you more.

Being a (very) short man myself, I really appreciate point no.3.

I am a really short guy - but I have also been smart, intelligent and reasonably fit. My advice to fellow short men is:

Yes, most girls do prefer guys much taller than themselves. BUT if you have the right personality, women will come to you - and those who do come would be more genuine - since they have managed to see beyond your height.

Personally, I know at least two girls who had fallen for me when I was at Uni, but I rejected them for their looks (they were both rather stout) - I was not proud of this 'superficial' judgement - but frankly, I wasn't attracted to them.

However, right then, I also found my gf (my wife now) - she was fit, good looking and about 5 cm (3/2 inches) taller than me - we have been madly in love with each other ever since (12 years - and going stronger) ....

deep down .. I know I was lucky that I was only 18 when I met her... it might take a bit longer for some.. but don't give up!!

I am a fairly tall girl and I prefer a guy that is taller than me. However, my boyfriend is about an inch shorter than me. I still love him and find him sexy, thoigh, so, it's really not that important.

Not at all, his personality is much more important than his height. Taller or shorter, you can't help who you're attracted to.

I prefer for my guy to be taller than me, I'm 5'6 so most men are. If I could be picky about it every one of them would be taller than 6'0. I have a thing for wearing high heels and sometimes that makes me taller than some men I know.
