Title: Women: Are you a height bigot?
Post by: kirps on January 17, 2007, 08:06:34 AM
How much does a man's height matter to you womenfolk? I am 5'7" or 5'8" and I have been running into the tall girl brick wall a lot lately. I even had one girl directly tell me "I like you but you are too short." She was probably 5'10" or so. So women, are you discriminatory?

At 5'2", it's pretty impossible for me to be a height bigot.  However, I have dated a few guys over 5'11", and get yelled at by my taller friends for taking all of the tall guys. 

Hey, I can't help it that at my height, the cute index is through the roof.

I am less than 5'2", and I do like tall guys (up to about 6'5"--then it's too tall).  But I've been attracted to and dated shorter ones, too, and it ultimately isn't a big factor.  5'7-5'8" isn't really all that short, anyway, just a little below average.

Perhaps the taller girls feel a little self-conscious already and don't want to draw more attention to their height by dating a short guy?  I don't know.

This is exactly the kind of bigotry I have come in to contact with, its like there is a strict number and if you don't meet it you're done. Sort of like if HLS said LSAT less than 179, no dice...

Plus there are so many cute heels out there, and if the taller girl already feels self conscious being seen with a shorter man, she's now forced to wear flats.

I don't know what is wrong with us.  I've never encountered men who have height restrictions on women... weight restrictions, maybe, but even that is pretty high schoolish. 

I wouldn't use it as a cutoff.  I'll consider soft factors.

i think it's a matter of preference.  some men don't care for overweight women & then you have some who like women "w/meat on them".  :D
i've had guys tell me i'm too skinny for them.  that i need to gain weight.  i didn't get offended.

there are women out there that like short men.  believe me, i know some of them.

Yeah, tall women are beautiful, but I've never wanted to be one.  There are times when I'd like to be 5'6", but generally no taller.

I hear this a lot but I'm not sure I buy it, I don't give a *&^% if the girl is taller than me and wears heels, puts me at eye level with interesting bits (If you can't tell that was both deliberately inflamatory because this pisses me off, and a facetious statement. Never can tell if the tone is coming off in print.)

We know that you don't care.  It's the women who care.  Blame it on stereotypes that say that men are supposed to be taller, stronger, etc., and that women are supposed to be able to cuddle up to men and have to look upward to kiss her man.

Oh believe me, I don't think its easier for women, I evaluate women on a standard the I can't live up to, and I will be the first to admit it. However, I have "wiggle room" in most of my evaluations... Example (crude but illustrative), I am an "ass-man" however my last girlfriend was draggin' quite the wagon, but had a lot of other nice qualities at the time.

I don't have any standards that have the hard cut-off I have encountered many times in the height department. That's what bugs me, it seems there's no room to move. I can't make up for being short by being funny etc. About the only cure I have seen is being loaded, which is why I seek gainful employment, that and to buy beer for when I go home alone  :(

It's all just hypothetical for me because I'm not dating, but between 5'11"ish and 6'3"ish would be ideal.

My (male) friend is 5'5".  He was engaged to a girl that was 5'10".  She wanted him to wear lifts at the wedding because in her opinion, the groom has to be taller than the bride in every photo.  Um, that would have been 6 inch lifts.  Plus, he was supposed to wear his military dress uniform.  6 inch lifts aren't quite within regulation.  For a variety of reasons the wedding was called off.

Frontline had a show on last week about attractiveness. They followed a study done in Britan that looked at what makes members of the opposite gender attracted to one another. For physical attributes, men preferred an optimal waste to hip ratio (whatever that was, they didn't really define what men considered to be optimal other than it was "hourglass") and women, almost universally, were more attracted to tall men.

This really came as no surprise to me. I am not a tall dude by any means so I've run into the issue before. However, I don't lack from dates nor female suitors. Everyone has their "cutoffs" or "requirements", and if height is said cutoff for female then I'm just not the dude for her. There are plenty of other women out there...

Exactly.  I'm 5'9", and I just felt like a big, unfeminine oaf the couple times I tried dating a guy 5'9 to 6 feet.  I needed a more significant difference to feel attracted and attractive.

I married a man who is 6'3", and it is the perfect difference!  I am 95th percentile, and he is 93rd (for our ages and race).

I think somewhere inside every tall woman, even supermodels, is that awkward 10 year old girl who was a head taller than all the boys in class and who had already outgrown her mother's shoe size.  Now, I love my height and even wish I were a little taller (though the shopping is a *pain* due to my crazy disproportionately long limbs).  But when I was a kid, tall just meant feeling unfeminine and out of place.

i don't think i've really had height/weight requirements for women.
as long as they are pleasant in personality and proportion.
although i'm guessing women taller and heavier than me would be accustomed to mating rituals of the amazon.

I am NOT repeat NOT advocating Nuremburg trials for every girl thats turned me down because she's got stilts.

I have no strong preference on height when it comes to women. I have been very attracted to both dwarves and giants so to speak. One of the women I pined after for a good bit in college was lucky if she was 5'. By the same token a couple years later I was retarded for a girl who was 5'10" or so. In my experience the only reason height matters is as an obstacle for me to overcome in getting a date.

there are women out there that like short men.  believe me, i know some of them.

My husband's tallish (6'2), but I've spent time with men shorter and smaller than me.  I'm 5'5, 120 lbs, so that's a small guy.  It was nice to be able to push back.  I had no problem with smaller stature; my problem was with the corresponding attitude problems.

My ideal height would be about 5'8, but I'm ok with my fella.  I'm just always a little surprised when I see how small I look compared to him in pictures.  It's not my preference to look or feel doll-like.

I'm surprised noone has brought up the "short man syndrome" until now...

Many short men seems to have a 'larger than life' personality to make up for their height.  It can be good (outgoing, charismatic, etc) or bad (loud, obnoxious, etc).

5'6"

not many men are significantly shorter than i am as it is, so i don't have a height preference. i've dated a whole range of heights from shorter to much taller. in fact, i've found that there are advantages to similar heights. ;)

My (male) friend is 5'5".  He was engaged to a girl that was 5'10".  She wanted him to wear lifts at the wedding because in her opinion, the groom has to be taller than the bride in every photo.  Um, that would have been 6 inch lifts.  Plus, he was supposed to wear his military dress uniform.  6 inch lifts aren't quite within regulation.  For a variety of reasons the wedding was called off.

damn.

one of the nastiest height comments i've ever heard came from a guy referring the groom at a wedding he attended. he was a friend of the significantly taller and thinner bride. he said the couple standing together resembled a golf club.

Mona Lisa is exactly right.

I have no trouble admitting the "short man syndrome", as you can tell from this post I've obviously got myself a case. I contend that this is brought on by the reaction I get to being short. You can't be compensating for something if that attribute isn't having some affect that must be compensated for.

There are a couple of versions of SMS. I happen to have the variety that is non-violent but very loud and joke-oriented. I tend to operate with a high-energy level and a lot of comedy/sarcasm. I personally find the fight-picking variety of SMS to be much more annoying and potentially damaging. There is also the less common wall-flower variety, but @#!* that noise, its too boring.

kirps...have you noticed that your personality has disguised your height somewhat? Several people are surprised when I mention that im 5-7 and always say that thought I was taller. If i suffer from SMS, it manifests itself in the extroverted/sarcastic/life of the party way so I like to think my "larger than life" personality makes up for my short stature.

How much does a man's height matter to you womenfolk? I am 5'7" or 5'8" and I have been running into the tall girl brick wall a lot lately. I even had one girl directly tell me "I like you but you are too short." She was probably 5'10" or so. So women, are you discriminatory?

Sorry dahlin'... but I am. I'm 5'3.5"... so I really shouldn't be. I like my guys at 5'10" or taller... but I've gone out with guys as short as 5'6/5'7. They don't have to be big (not so much into body)... but I do like my men tall  :P

I can understand wanting your guy to be taller than you, but it's got to be relative. Isn't it kind of unfair, for example, to have a girl who's only 5' to be demanding guys over 5'10". That's a kind of extreme example, but if you're 5'6" or more, I can understanding wanting a guy 6' or taller...but if you're barely 5' or slightly above, don't be expecting a 6'+ guy. This wasn't really directed at you SugarJ...actually it kind of was.

How much does a man's height matter to you womenfolk? I am 5'7" or 5'8" and I have been running into the tall girl brick wall a lot lately. I even had one girl directly tell me "I like you but you are too short." She was probably 5'10" or so. So women, are you discriminatory?

Sorry dahlin'... but I am. I'm 5'3.5"... so I really shouldn't be. I like my guys at 5'10" or taller... but I've gone out with guys as short as 5'6/5'7. They don't have to be big (not so much into body)... but I do like my men tall  :P


I can understand wanting your guy to be taller than you, but it's got to be relative. Isn't it kind of unfair, for example, to have a girl who's only 5' to be demanding guys over 5'10". That's a kind of extreme example, but if you're 5'6" or more, I can understanding wanting a guy 6' or taller...but if you're barely 5' or slightly above, don't be expecting a 6'+ guy. This wasn't really directed at you SugarJ...actually it kind of was.

Lol. It just helps the appearance. Some guys like blonde girls... they don't only like blondes... but being blonde gives them a few points. Same is with me and height. It's not a requirement... but it adds a few points. So does long hair. Long hair can make up for not being as tall. I just like the tall and skinny type... I like to feel small compared to my guy.

I can understand wanting your guy to be taller than you, but it's got to be relative. Isn't it kind of unfair, for example, to have a girl who's only 5' to be demanding guys over 5'10".

I dated a girl once that was maybe 5' on a good day. She told me I was by far the shortest guy she had dated and most of them were over 6'2". So these types are in fact out there (although I suppose I'm evidence a short guy could overcome "height bigotry") Btw, the Frontline thing I mentioned earlier in this post said that females like a male 6" taller or more than her.

kirps...have you noticed that your personality has disguised your height somewhat? Several people are surprised when I mention that im 5-7 and always say that thought I was taller. If i suffer from SMS, it manifests itself in the extroverted/sarcastic/life of the party way so I like to think my "larger than life" personality makes up for my short stature.


I have noticed that, but it kinda comes back to mite me sometimes, i.e. I will make a good impression on a girl, or personality-wise she'll think I'm great but it will come back up when she starts thinking about romantics, so to speak. Very few of my friends would describe me as a short person, but when it comes to dating, it seems to break the deal for me. i.e. the girl who said "I like you but you are too short"

are you kidding me???  there's nothing like hugging a tall guy. getting up on you're tippy toes while he's bending down & the bonus is when he picks you up so you're the same height as him...sigh.  & the best is looking up into his eyes before kissing...looking straight ahead isn't as much fun!

But it could be done. I've got a friend from rugby who is one of the coolest guys I know, great player, graduate degree in mechanical engineering, funny, owns his own home, but is only about 5'3" or 5'4". What's a guy like that supposed to do? It's not his fault, he's not a drug addict or some lazy bastard, but the guy can't get a date to save his life.

5'11" is alright, but below that is sorta freakish. it's supposed to be a relationship, not a circus. just keepin' it real. your race analogy is weak, tirps.

Umm... below 5'11" is freakish?  How tall are you?

A) you've just called me freakish because I am less than 5' 11" tall. A physical characteristic which I can't change.

B) A racist hates/discriminates against someone for the color of their skin. A physical characteristic which they can't change.

I'm not saying that wanting to date someone taller than you is akin to being an orderly for Dr. Mengele (sp?) But I am saying that the immediate dismissal of someone solely for their height isn't totally innocent either. And we all do things like that, I just want it to bear consideration.

Since when is average -- [average intelligence, average manners, average considerateness, average cleanliness] -- satisfactory in a partner?

if a dude isn't at least 5'11", it's hard to see him as a man. it would require imagination. lots of it sustained over a long period of time.

best answer I've heard, a little snarky perhaps, but best framed. To be fair though the reason I use "height bigot" is 1) because I like the way it sounds, 2) because a whole class of people have been discounted, not just me, and 3) to provoke response, apologetic, angry or otherwise, and it has definitely worked, so thank you for proving my point.

And sometimes it just takes the right guy.  I have always dated guys who were about six feet tall or taller (I'm 5'3") and loved that they were tall... When I met my current boyf (5'7") I thought, "Well, this isn't going to go anywhere, I like tall guys."  Wrong.  I'm completely crazy about him and the height thing just isn't an issue at all.

5'11" is alright, but below that is sorta freakish. it's supposed to be a relationship, not a circus. just keepin' it real. your race analogy is weak, kirps.

A) you've just called me freakish because I am less than 5' 11" tall. A physical characteristic which I can't change.

B) A racist hates/discriminates against someone for the color of their skin. A physical characteristic which they can't change.

I'm not saying that wanting to date someone taller than you is akin to being an orderly for Dr. Mengele (sp?) But I am saying that the immediate dismissal of someone solely for their height isn't totally innocent either. And we all do things like that, I just want it to bear consideration.

See, I don't think not being romantically attracted to someone is the same as hating or disriminating against him.  You can't really help who you're physically atracted to and who you aren't.

Are you a bigot if you are not attracted to heavy people or tall people or short people?  No... everyone has certain physical characteristics he or she is naturally attracted to in a mate.  For many women, whether it's biological or societal, we want a mate noticeably larger than ourselves.

I don't think the ACLU is going to come after you based on not being attracted to something physical about someone, no matter what it is.  Here's just one interesting study about attraction (more implications for race than height, but height may still apply):

Some women just ARE NOT attracted to short guys.

And sometimes it just takes the right guy.  I have always dated guys who were about six feet tall or taller (I'm 5'3") and loved that they were tall... When I met my current boyf (5'7") I thought, "Well, this isn't going to go anywhere, I like tall guys."  Wrong.  I'm completely crazy about him and the height thing just isn't an issue at all.

I think that's the OP's point.  Some women don't have an open mind or give him that chance.

But some of us have given shorter men (or in my case, since I'm the height of the average man, average-height men) a chance, and they just don't do it for us.  Chemistry.  Not the guy's fault... it's either my fault for my own body image issue of wanting to feel smaller, or it's nobody's fault because people are just attracted to different things.

Ok, you get the new best framed answer award. I think this is valid, and I think I have said before that I definitely do the same thing when it comes to some characteristics about women, I know there are some things that usually don't attract me. And I know my male friends have certain things that don't work for them.

The reason I have brought this up is because height has knocked me out of contention more times than I care to count and that bugs me, but also because it seems to be quasi-universal, as you can read from the majority of posts here and probably gather from your own observations. And while I will admit that us guys tend to be more physically judgmental (myself included) I am not sure there is one characteristic like height that men are hung up on, please comment.

Weight.

End of story. 

A lot of guys have some very unrealistic standards about women and their version of acceptable weight.  I guarantee that overweight girls get knocked out of contention at least as much, if not more, than you do because of height.

im only 5 feet...so pretty much any height is fine for me, with the exclusion of being shorter than me
for me, id say around 5'6 - 5'8 is perfect..too tall feels awkward for me, and it is uncomfortable to hug or kiss standing up unless i am wearing major heels
my ex was only 5'4..and it was fine!

That's an interesting way to look at it... never thought of that. You may be on to something...

By the way, my guy is shorter than you (taller than me, though!), so it does happen (as other posters have pointed out).

I understand, and if I were you, I'd probably feel the same way.  

There probably isn't a single factor that knocks women out of contention the same way (except maybe weight, which is to some degree controllable) I will say that the blonde, large-breasted woman gets more than her fair share of airtime and adoration!

With regard to weight, I would say that is the closest competitor to height. Though weight is (admittedly to a degree) controllable. And weight is honestly the number one killer for me when it comes to girls and their attractiveness. But I know a lot of girls who are overweight to an unhealthy degree that get lots of dudes just because of their boobs. Crude but true.

Don't get Miss P and I started on whether or not weight is controllable.  You can't change your body type. 
Title: Re: Women: Are you a height bigot?
Post by: kirps on January 17, 2007, 01:55:43 PM
Body type isn't changeable, but there is definitely room for flex within body type. I would say I am the look-good-in-clothes-could-stand-improvement-naked type. And I hit the gym 5 times a week to make those improvements, slowly. I only weigh 20lbs more now than I did in the fifth grade, not because I am small now, but because in fifth grade I was ri-goddamn-diculous fat. Weight is controllable to a degree, and I have learned the extent of that degree by experience. I think there is definitely some weight-bigotry going on in this country (used bigotry for congruency, disregard for flame purposes) but I believe there is also a tendency to use the body-type excuse as a crutch, I know I've done it and I've watched my whole family do it.

I'm not saying people who are extremely overweight or obese can't do anything about it, but everyone is different.  Not every girl is going to be a size 0-6, regardless of what guys find most attractive.
Title: Re: Women: Are you a height bigot?
Post by: kirps on January 17, 2007, 02:09:57 PM
Agreed and acknowledged, but I am also saying that there seems to more flex in the over size six range than the less than six feet range. Is there another characteristic that I may be missing that is more universal than height? If you can't tell I am finding this part of the discussion very interesting.

How old are you? There are some options for short people to get an extra inch or two if they still have growth plates on their bones. Kinda like controlling weight through stomach stapling. I think that girls look for 6-8 inches above them. I'm 5' 11", usually date girls 5' 3" to 5' 6" or so.
To sound mysogynistic: Girls like shoes. I know a girl who cannot wear heels because of how short her BF is and it really pisses her off. While you can't help how tall you are, she can't help what she wants to be with.

you can wear heels even if your boyfriend is shorter than you, as long as he doesn't have insecurities about it. I've never dated a guy shorter than me, but I have dated a guy who was shorter than me while wearing heels, and since he was ok with it, it wasn't a problem at all.

At 5'4", I won't date anyone under 5'10".  Sorry.  :P

This is exactly the kind of bigotry I have come in to contact with, its like there is a strict number and if you don't meet it you're done. Sort of like if HLS said LSAT less than 179, no dice...

I've never encountered men who have height restrictions on women... weight restrictions, maybe, but even that is pretty high schoolish. 
 



I do.  After dating a horse-woman for a few years, I promised myself I would never again date anyone over 5'4.  The SO is 5'3, so it worked out just fine and dandy.

Not dating (or marrying, doing, or fooling around with) someone you're not attracted to doesn't make you a height bigot.  So if you don't date a dude because you don't find him attractive because he's 5'5", that doesn't count.  If you don't date him because you object to him because of his height on principle, then yeah, you suck at life.

True that, the one that pissed me off the most was the girl that said to my face "I like you, but you're too short." I was like come the @#!* on thats brutal, get over it. Of course once I saw how shallow she was I became significantly less interested rather quickly.

flat chested, or small chested don't experience the same type of droopage that big-chested people would ahve to contend with. Further more, very large chested women tend to ahve bad posture.

I'm 5'8 and as long as the guy is at least 5'9, it's doable. David Bowie and Iman made the "equal height but girl taller in heels" look very sexy and in. I don't mind being taller in heels. What I mind is a guy who is short--so 5'9 has always been my cut-off, and I have never been willing to budge below that.

However, if I was anything less than 5'5, I wouldn't date men less than 6ft b/c I wouldn't want my kids (especially my son) to be short. I understand completely why short women don't date short or average men--it's sorta hard to weed the shortness out when you're adding more short genes to your already unduly short genes.

Of course it's possible for two short people to produce tall children, and it's possible for a tall man to have children whose heights are closer to that of his short wife. But I go by probability, not possibility, and the probability of short + tall = taller is much higher than short + short = taller.

As it is, I'm 5'8 and my SO is 5'9.5. He's average height for a man and I'm tall (in comparison to American women). So our kids will very likely be at least average height males and tall females.

You seem to have thought about this a lot.  Why is height so important?

wait, people do what hank wants? what dream world did this thread get moved into?

he's talking about guys, not girls doing what he wants. it's okay, we're still in reality

guys do what he wants? cuz hes tall and intimidating?ha. ha ha.

 >:(

Flat-chested women would be OK if it went with the rest of their body structure.  What I don't like is when the small breasts look out of place.  And remember--a good body is a cure-all for pretty much anything.  Even a whiny high-pitched voice, a grand sense of entitlement, a daddy's girl complex, a busted face, and ugly-bitchy-obnoxious friends.

What if the easily intimidated men are the nicest, caringest, supportingest men?

I don't believe women really want this. Kindness, romance, caring and support at the right times? Sure. But easily intimidated doesn't fit into that equation. That's a weak man who does those things because he feels he has to or because he thinks that's what he has to do to keep her, not out of any genuine respect.

bingo. that's what i meant.

I'm a reformed height bigot.  I'm 5'2" and I used to only date tall guys - 6' and up.  At first, I wasn't interested in my boyfriend because he's only a couple of inches taller than me, but I was wrong and admit my early mistake.  When I'm in tall heels, I'm actually taller than he is but he thinks it's sexy :)

I probably wouldn't date a guy shorter than me, but that doesn't matter for 2 majors reasons -


1. I am 5'1"

2. I am engaged (and my fiance happens to be about 5'10" ... but that has nothing to do w/ why I like him or we are together).

Coming in late on this one, I'm a pretty tall girl and I've very recently decided to become a height bigot.

I'm 5'10" barefoot, and I've dated guys who are lots shorter than I am!  I've noticed though, that I'm not the one that has a problem with the match - it's usually the guy.  I dated a guy who was 5'7" and he wouldn't hold my hand in public because he said it "looked funny".  (That didn't last long, let me tell you.)  Another guy was 5'9" and he wouldn't let me wear heels when we were together.  In fact, if I was in athletic shoes (they add half an inch or so) he didn't want to walk too close to me.

So, I've noticed that shorter guys have issues with their height... and that is what makes it hard for a taller woman to date them.

Now, if I met a guy who didn't have issues with my being taller than he was, it wouldn't bother me at all (their shoulders are perfect head-resting height!)  But I've dated several and not a single one has been comfortable with my height.   ::)

It's their loss, really.

Maybe you should change the way you find guys to date?  :P

Are there ways to find people to date that I'm unaware of?  Actually, I don't "find" people, since I don't really go looking.  It's the sort of thing that just kind of happens, I suppose.   ;)

I did recently decide to start wearing heels more often, too.  I agree with some of the taller girls on this thread that it can make you feel a little awkward to be tall.  When I wear skinny pants and heels, I feel like I look like a giraffe with boobs!

Tehehehe  :D

i don't care about any of that bs either.  my comment was in regards to our, clearly, divergent frames of reference.  you flatter yourself by thinking that your height "scares off" or "intimidates" the weak, nonconfident, not strong men.  i meant "scares off" more like drives away.  your glaring character flaws drive the men away, confident or not.  don't flatter yourself.

INCINERATION!

I'm 5'8 and as long as the guy is at least 5'9, it's doable. David Bowie and Iman made the "equal height but girl taller in heels" look very sexy and in. I don't mind being taller in heels. What I mind is a guy who is short--so 5'9 has always been my cut-off, and I have never been willing to budge below that.

However, if I was anything less than 5'5, I wouldn't date men less than 6ft b/c I wouldn't want my kids (especially my son) to be short. I understand completely why short women don't date short or average men--it's sorta hard to weed the shortness out when you're adding more short genes to your already unduly short genes.

Of course it's possible for two short people to produce tall children, and it's possible for a tall man to have children whose heights are closer to that of his short wife. But I go by probability, not possibility, and the probability of short + tall = taller is much higher than short + short = taller.

As it is, I'm 5'8 and my SO is 5'9.5. He's average height for a man and I'm tall (in comparison to American women). So our kids will very likely be at least average height males and tall females.

You seem to have thought about this a lot.  Why is height so important?

I think all things (weight, beauty, facial symmetry, bone structure etc) held equal, a taller person is more attractive than a shorter person (until about 6'1 for women and 6'6 for men). I think taller people, especially long-limbed, long-necked ones, tend to look more elegant in clothing, can pull of a more sophisticated look, have a more commanding presence by virtue of the fact that everyone isn't towering over them, and are more likely to be taken seriously.

I'm going by complaints I've heard from my short friends and what I've seen myself. I used to be roommates with a bunch of asian girls who could never wear the types of clothing I could pull off b/c they had short legs, long torsos and all maxed out at like 5'3. They were the first to point out to me the difficulties short people feel they face and actually do face. One of them took everything height-related really personally and always pointed out that I was referred to as "graceful" "gazelle-like" "elegant" etc while she got "cute" "adorable" "cuddly" etc. I sympathized with her but I was glad I'm 5'8, and would rather confer that small advantage to a future daughter of mine than have her height be something she has to overcome.

I'm acquaintances with a couple of short guys (one is 5'5 and the other looks a little taller, maybe 5'6). The 5'5 one has a really great body, great sense of humor, and is very nice yet every girl I know would never date him b/c of his height. I took issue with a few girls over that but then I realized I was being a hypocrite b/c even if I was single, I still wouldn't want to date a 5'5 guy. So it's like all his personal charm can't overcome that one feature. I dont want my son dealing with that if I can help it.

Height isn't a terribly big deal. But I'd like to confer as many advantages, physically and otherwise, to my future children as possible. I picked my SO b/c of who he is personality-wise, but I was also aware of his advantageous attributes. I guess I'm sounding weird now, but whatev.

Shut up, girraffe-woman  :D  Just kidding, but it seemed you were dogging on us short people.  I happen to a be short person w/ a short torso and long legs, though ... I can find clothes fine (even easier 20 lbs ago, though ...)  I think it's a matter of opinion whether tall or short people look better ... short girls always look cute/small (unless they are severely overweight), and we can wear HUGE heels or platforms w/o towering over anyone.

Also, how you appear (elegent or domineering, or whatever) is all in personality - not physical stature.  Many people are surprised when they realize how short I am b/c I come off as dominant, assertive (occasionally aggressive ... heh heh), and that makes me SEEM taller ... make sense?

Ooh, I've often wished I was shorter because of the adjectives associated with it!  See, if you're tall, you're elegant, hot, or nothing.  Well, sometimes I'm neither elegant nor hot - I'm average or maybe I felt like being a bum and going all day in yoga pants and a ponytail.  Then I get nothing.  If you're short, though, you're almost always at least cute.  I can't pull off "cute".  It just doesn't work.

I understand about the wanting to confer height-related advantages onto your children, though.  Taller people (especially men) are generally seen as leaders, more commanding, etc, and generally have higher salaries than shorter people in the same professions.

Jus' sayin'.

Then again, my mom is 5'0" and my dad is 5'7" and I'm quite a bit taller than they are, so it could happen!

I know what you mean.  When I'm done up, I feel a lot more striking than shorter women.  But if I'm bumming around, I don't feel "cute" at all.  

Lipstick, mascara, and earrings help, though.  Even in yoga pants and a ponytail. :)

Alright, now let's compare our parents' heights and our own height.

Dad: 6'0"
Mom: 5'8" (But she's the shrimp of the family, even of the women.  My 85 year old grandmother was 5'10" most of her life, and even now is probably still 5'8" or 5'9".)
Me: 5'9"
My brother: 6'2.5"

I think it's sort of crazy that my husband is 6'3", while his brother is only 5'9".  To me, that seems like a pretty big height difference for brothers.  His mom his short, his dad's about 6 feet, but I think there are some tall men on his mom's side of the family, even though the women are all tiny.

Interesting stuff.  I wonder why short girls feel so insecure.  There's nothing wrong with cute and cuddly.  I would think it would be the guys who would be insecure.  I have a theory that short guys tend to be more outgoing, even bordering on annoying, around women because they feel they have to compensate for their height, while taller guys can be more relaxed/laid back.  Many exceptions of course; just a generalization.

I'm going by complaints I've heard from my short friends and what I've seen myself. I used to be roommates with a bunch of asian girls who could never wear the types of clothing I could pull off b/c they had short legs, long torsos and all maxed out at like 5'3. They were the first to point out to me the difficulties short people feel they face and actually do face. One of them took everything height-related really personally and always pointed out that I was referred to as "graceful" "gazelle-like" "elegant" etc while she got "cute" "adorable" "cuddly" etc. I sympathized with her but I was glad I'm 5'8, and would rather confer that small advantage to a future daughter of mine than have her height be something she has to overcome.

I'm acquaintances with a couple of short guys (one is 5'5 and the other looks a little taller, maybe 5'6). The 5'5 one has a really great body, great sense of humor, and is very nice yet every girl I know would never date him b/c of his height. I took issue with a few girls over that but then I realized I was being a hypocrite b/c even if I was single, I still wouldn't want to date a 5'5 guy. So it's like all his personal charm can't overcome that one feature. I dont want my son dealing with that if I can help it.

Height isn't a terribly big deal. But I'd like to confer as many advantages, physically and otherwise, to my future children as possible. I picked my SO b/c of who he is personality-wise, but I was also aware of his advantageous attributes. I guess I'm sounding weird now, but whatev.

Interesting stuff.  I wonder why short girls feel so insecure.  There's nothing wrong with cute and cuddly.  I would think it would be the guys who would be insecure.  I have a theory that short guys tend to be more outgoing, even bordering on annoying, around women because they feel they have to compensate for their height, while taller guys can be more relaxed/laid back.  Many exceptions of course; just a generalization.  

For every short girl there's a tall girl who slouches to appear shorter.  There are insecure people period.  It's silly to use someone else's insecurities to make yourself feel better about your height or lack thereof.

The short man syndrome is very pronounced in some guys. In my freshman year, these two guys on my hallway met the first time. One was about 6'5", the other was about 5'6". The short one started calling him names, insulted him out of hand. Short guys can be very willful. The tall guy just turned the other cheek.

Ooh, I've often wished I was shorter because of the adjectives associated with it!  See, if you're tall, you're elegant, hot, or nothing.  Well, sometimes I'm neither elegant nor hot - I'm average or maybe I felt like being a bum and going all day in yoga pants and a ponytail.  Then I get nothing.  If you're short, though, you're almost always at least cute.  I can't pull off "cute".  It just doesn't work.

I understand about the wanting to confer height-related advantages onto your children, though.  Taller people (especially men) are generally seen as leaders, more commanding, etc, and generally have higher salaries than shorter people in the same professions.

Jus' sayin'.

Then again, my mom is 5'0" and my dad is 5'7" and I'm quite a bit taller than they are, so it could happen!
i'm 5'6" & my son's dad is 6'5".
right now my son (13) is 5'6" he's already taller than most of my female friends & as tall or taller than some male friends that i have.  he likes being tall but doesn't want to be as tall or any taller than his dad.  for some reason 6'5" is the cutoff bet. being tall & too tall.

I do exactly that, I sometimes get called "a little too much"


BTW.

Dad 5'6"-5'7"
Mom 5'3"
Sister 5'1"
me 5'7"-5'8"

I'm the tallest one in my entire family until you get to cousins where the married-in parent was taller. So I am the tallest of mom,dad,sister,all grandparents, both my mother's sisters, both my dad's sister's, my dads brother, and all but one cousin. its pretty crazy.

I'm 5'7" (Dad 5'8", Mom 5'2") and have dated a girl who was just shorter than 5'10" in high school. Height was never an issue for either of us.

For the boobs vs height debate...I think the difference is that one is desired while the other is required. Most guys would like to date a girl with a nice C cup or bigger, but wouldn't hesitate about dating a girl with an A or B if she was attractive and everything else clicked. It's not so much about toting around a girl with big boobs in public for our social benefit, but more about the enjoyment of playing with big breasts when getting intimate. As for many taller women, it seems like they could meet an attractive, shorter guy where everything else clicked, yet choose not to date this guy merely because they will feel socially awkward in public being with him.

To make an analogy...big boobs for a guy is like shopping at a BMW dealership. You're there b/c you like the cars, and a factory model would more than suffice. However, if a rep would offer you nice rims, a sunroof, and a great sound system for the bare factory model price...you'd take it. For tall women and short men, it's like being offered a BMW at a discount, but turning it down b/c your hellbent on paying full price for a Range Rover.

But it's not at all about feeling socially awkward in public.  I couldn't care less what anyone else thinks, and I really don't think anyone would think anything at all if I dated a guy my own height or a bit shorter.  It's a matter of simply not being physically attracted to guys who aren't significantly larger than me.  Because I like to feel smaller and feminine and, yeah, I guess protected.

I'm 5'8 and as long as the guy is at least 5'9, it's doable. David Bowie and Iman made the "equal height but girl taller in heels" look very sexy and in. I don't mind being taller in heels. What I mind is a guy who is short--so 5'9 has always been my cut-off, and I have never been willing to budge below that.

However, if I was anything less than 5'5, I wouldn't date men less than 6ft b/c I wouldn't want my kids (especially my son) to be short. I understand completely why short women don't date short or average men--it's sorta hard to weed the shortness out when you're adding more short genes to your already unduly short genes.

Of course it's possible for two short people to produce tall children, and it's possible for a tall man to have children whose heights are closer to that of his short wife. But I go by probability, not possibility, and the probability of short + tall = taller is much higher than short + short = taller.

As it is, I'm 5'8 and my SO is 5'9.5. He's average height for a man and I'm tall (in comparison to American women). So our kids will very likely be at least average height males and tall females.

You seem to have thought about this a lot.  Why is height so important?

I think all things (weight, beauty, facial symmetry, bone structure etc) held equal, a taller person is more attractive than a shorter person (until about 6'1 for women and 6'6 for men). I think taller people, especially long-limbed, long-necked ones, tend to look more elegant in clothing, can pull of a more sophisticated look, have a more commanding presence by virtue of the fact that everyone isn't towering over them, and are more likely to be taken seriously.

I'm going by complaints I've heard from my short friends and what I've seen myself. I used to be roommates with a bunch of asian girls who could never wear the types of clothing I could pull off b/c they had short legs, long torsos and all maxed out at like 5'3. They were the first to point out to me the difficulties short people feel they face and actually do face. One of them took everything height-related really personally and always pointed out that I was referred to as "graceful" "gazelle-like" "elegant" etc while she got "cute" "adorable" "cuddly" etc. I sympathized with her but I was glad I'm 5'8, and would rather confer that small advantage to a future daughter of mine than have her height be something she has to overcome.

I'm acquaintances with a couple of short guys (one is 5'5 and the other looks a little taller, maybe 5'6). The 5'5 one has a really great body, great sense of humor, and is very nice yet every girl I know would never date him b/c of his height. I took issue with a few girls over that but then I realized I was being a hypocrite b/c even if I was single, I still wouldn't want to date a 5'5 guy. So it's like all his personal charm can't overcome that one feature. I dont want my son dealing with that if I can help it.

Height isn't a terribly big deal. But I'd like to confer as many advantages, physically and otherwise, to my future children as possible. I picked my SO b/c of who he is personality-wise, but I was also aware of his advantageous attributes. I guess I'm sounding weird now, but whatev.

I think you would be happy marrying a mirror.

I'm going by complaints I've heard from my short friends and what I've seen myself. I used to be roommates with a bunch of asian girls who could never wear the types of clothing I could pull off b/c they had short legs, long torsos and all maxed out at like 5'3. They were the first to point out to me the difficulties short people feel they face and actually do face. One of them took everything height-related really personally and always pointed out that I was referred to as "graceful" "gazelle-like" "elegant" etc while she got "cute" "adorable" "cuddly" etc. I sympathized with her but I was glad I'm 5'8, and would rather confer that small advantage to a future daughter of mine than have her height be something she has to overcome.

I'm acquaintances with a couple of short guys (one is 5'5 and the other looks a little taller, maybe 5'6). The 5'5 one has a really great body, great sense of humor, and is very nice yet every girl I know would never date him b/c of his height. I took issue with a few girls over that but then I realized I was being a hypocrite b/c even if I was single, I still wouldn't want to date a 5'5 guy. So it's like all his personal charm can't overcome that one feature. I dont want my son dealing with that if I can help it.

Height isn't a terribly big deal. But I'd like to confer as many advantages, physically and otherwise, to my future children as possible. I picked my SO b/c of who he is personality-wise, but I was also aware of his advantageous attributes. I guess I'm sounding weird now, but whatev.

I think you would be happy marrying a mirror.

Mean, but good.  Very good.

Why?

I'm 5'8 and as long as the guy is at least 5'9, it's doable. David Bowie and Iman made the "equal height but girl taller in heels" look very sexy and in. I don't mind being taller in heels. What I mind is a guy who is short--so 5'9 has always been my cut-off, and I have never been willing to budge below that.

However, if I was anything less than 5'5, I wouldn't date men less than 6ft b/c I wouldn't want my kids (especially my son) to be short. I understand completely why short women don't date short or average men--it's sorta hard to weed the shortness out when you're adding more short genes to your already unduly short genes.

Of course it's possible for two short people to produce tall children, and it's possible for a tall man to have children whose heights are closer to that of his short wife. But I go by probability, not possibility, and the probability of short + tall = taller is much higher than short + short = taller.

As it is, I'm 5'8 and my SO is 5'9.5. He's average height for a man and I'm tall (in comparison to American women). So our kids will very likely be at least average height males and tall females.

You seem to have thought about this a lot.  Why is height so important?

I think all things (weight, beauty, facial symmetry, bone structure etc) held equal, a taller person is more attractive than a shorter person (until about 6'1 for women and 6'6 for men). I think taller people, especially long-limbed, long-necked ones, tend to look more elegant in clothing, can pull of a more sophisticated look, have a more commanding presence by virtue of the fact that everyone isn't towering over them, and are more likely to be taken seriously.



I completely disagree.  I don't see how most of these "advantages" make a person more attractive.

That's fine. I was expressing an opinion and you're free to have yours.


You'll need to substantiate more if you don't want to sound like a f-ing retard.

Say whaaaat?

I treat you nicely and you have nerve to get bold, as if you're something?

Exact who will I sound like a 'f-ing retard' (so original!) to, you *&^%-starting a-hole? Surely you're not implying that a brainless bit of nothing like you has the authority to evaluate what I sound like. I don't know which jungle you swung out of but you'd best climb off my back and return to your whore-mother's bosom, you big-mouthed, ass-backwards, worthless little monkey. I'm not feeling particularly patient today.


Thanks for proving my point.

I'm also going to assume that you won't be substantiating your weak little argument that I originally addressed.

Regardless of what the argument's devolved into, I did agree with O Dara's original point on height.  It's nothing new, I've heard explanations like that plenty of times before.

Yeah, and it's been equally pathetic each time.

I'm asking for substantiation, not empty regurgitated rhetoric.

Don't you think it could just be construed as her opinion?  I'm not sure how one would substantiate what she said.

There are probably some experiments out there about something similar to what was written. Sort of like the "chicks dig rugged features for a fling, but more feminine features for a mate" sort of articles Blue posted links to. Or not, and it could all be opinion, in which case substantiation is simply impossible since it's all personal preference. With the "I think" preface on O Dara's post, I tend to think it's the latter (my opinion, of course). Regardless, neither case is deserving of this sort of vitriol, more like a "care to back that up" and a friendly reminder that it hasn't been done yet.

Well said!  :D

I didn't ask you to provide statistics (although that would be helpful).  I didn't even ask you to give me "proof".  I said SUBSTANTIATE YOUR ARGUMENT.  Meaning, give me better REASONING than "tee hee I like tall people so everyone must like tall people". 

Fucktard.




PS:  Everything deserves vitriol.  For those who haven't figured this out yet, my ire is mostly random.

Holy crap Memories, O Dara was stating experiences and opinions. Those don't constitute an argument nor do they need substantiation. Granted, she was long-winded about it, but geez. Don't you have other outlets to vent your Napoleonic frustrations?

It is not a pearl of wisdom it is just an observation that you stroke your ego with the same vigor as a chronic masturbator.
