Women: Are you a height bigot?
« 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...

i have to admit that i am.

i'm 5'6" & i like 6 ft & over.  5'10" is probably the shortest i will go if i had to.

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.
