    Some are intimidated by girls 5'9" and up, usually because tall women (and well, women in general) have a major dealbreaker about not dating guys same height or shorter than them. So for *most* guys, if a girl is taller than them, then yeah, they may not bother to even approach them, cause it's a near guarantee (96%, specifically) she will reject him for being "too short," no matter what he does. That's just how women are. Not sure if I'd call that "intimidation," as not wasting time with someone who statistically has no interest in you for not being taller than her.

    However, I'm different, though. I'm short, so I don't want to be with a short girl, cause it makes me feel even worse about my own height, like I'm "settling for the best I could get" being with some small 5'5" chick. But if a tall girl loves me, I know it's real. Cause some might claim she's "downgrading" by being with a guy under six feet. So I'm mainly attracted to taller girls; 5'10" and over, though I'd go down to 5'8" if she likes to wear heels. Because I definitely don't want to be part of a "short couple," and a tall girl choosing me means the attraction is more genuine than a short girl choosing me as a consolation prize because I'm "not over six feet, but taller than [her], so I guess you'll do." If my lame 71-inch ass can't be tall, then at least she should be!

  • As a general rule, yes, that's a perception that many have, and something you should be aware of. How you deal with that is totally up to you, but it's good to be aware of how the majority of people are likely to perceive you, at least until they get to know you.

    • Just seems like something I've always noticed

  • We are, I've run into shorter guys who are into us but don't go for us since they think we wouldn't like them anyway

    • Statistically, 96% of women would not ever date a guy her height or shorter, whether she's tall or short. Women 5'9" and up feel the same way about it as women 5'6" and under. It's just that some tall women are more likely to "downgrade" to some guy who's less than six feet, but not ridiculously short like 5'4" or something. Being short myself, I hate it, but it is what it is.

    • I've never looked at shorter guys as a downgrade :/

    • It's not a downgrade, you place way to much on height. My personal desires don't make someone who doesn't fit them a downgrade

  • Well, mathematically, taller women would get more attention as they draw more eyes from the crowd.
    What they do with that attention, how they take it or respond is what decides whether one is intimidating or not. Certain looks/traits can be more intimidating than others but ultimately it is the interaction which should help decide that. If someone has made up their mind without even speaking to you, ignore it!

  • No Hot and sexy yes

  • I wouldn't say intimidating per say, but being 6'1" makes you taller than most guys, and most guys what a girl much shorter than them, I dont get why.
    So not intimidating but more than they feel insecure in their man hood cause they aren't the taller one in the relationship.

  • I LOVE TALL WOMEN !

  • nope not at all... my girlfriend is 5 11 and im 5 7 ..

  • Nice. legs by the way

  • Not intimidating at all. My ex was several inches taller than me, and when she wore heels she towered over me. I don't have any issues with it. I don't know why people would think you're dominant just because your height, that's weird.

  • Nope, I welcome them. open arms and heart

  • Nope, I love tall women. My girl isn't super tall though.

  • No. But they can be really insecure gentle giants.

  • No, at least not to me.

  • For a lot of guys yes, but not to me.
    I like tall girls like you, I'am only 5'11 and I would to be overhung

  • No, they’re hot. I’ve seen no correlation between a dominant personality and a woman’s height.
    Tall women are hot.

  • Are we on the basketball court, with you holding the ball, when asking this question?

    • Prefer volleyball but otherwise no😅

    • A person with their game face on, should be intimidating, but otherwise, I'd say no 😊.

  • Nope. My girl beats me, she’s 5’11. About your height with her boots on

  • Tall women are not intimidating at all. Not all tall women are dominant. Tall women are beautiful. Just because a woman is tall, it does not mean that she's any less of a woman than any other. My girlfriend is 6'2. Clearly they are not intimidating to me.

  • Nope. I’m 6’4 and taller women are like shorter women. Don’t feel any intimidation.

  • No they are beautiful and usualuy confident and make good Dom's.

  • Nice legs
