Why Are Women So Hung Up On Height?

I'm a busy guy, so I don't have a lot of time to go out and meet women... so I have started using Tinder. Why the f*ck are women so hung up on height? Every time I talk to a woman and we are about to meet... she usually asks, "Oh... by the way, how tall are you?" When I tell a woman I am 5'10", she usually replies with, "Oh... well, I am 5'8"/5'9" and I like to wear heels. I typically prefer men who are 6 feet or up." I swear, women ALWAYS say this! Apparently, I am short man. This is why women miss out on good men, because they always get hung up on trivial things like this. Sorry... just venting... but it's true.

  • Hey, come and meet me I don't mind. I've been attracted to men all shapes and sizes. Mind you the average height men are easier to kiss. There are some guy's so tall a little 5'² shortass like me would need a two tread safety step ladder to be face on with with them. Lmfao. At the same time i wouldn't feel comfortable dating someone with dwarfism either, I would do my back in having to d down and kiss them. I think some women feel more protected with a big high tower because his height might be a bit intimidating to other people. It sounds a bit idiotic if that really is the case. Its like saying because your short your incapable of defending yourself.

  • Umm... I;m like 5'2" and 5'10" is pretty tall for me. I usually date guys 5'11" and up, but that's by coincidence. I don't go seeking out super tall guys on purpose. I'm not superficial like that. I know plenty of girls that are that tall that would love a guy that was even an inch or two taller than them. Also... it's Tinder... do you really expect anyone on Tinder to truly care about your personality and not your looks. It's an app that's for people to like you on how you look, not who you are. If you want less superficial girls, then go out into the real world and try and find some...

    • Thanks for MHO. :)

  • That's pretty shallow. Height has never been something that was important to me. I know some men don't enjoy having taller women, so maybe some of the chicks who are saying that are just weeding out the guys that wouldn't accept her due to her being taller. Though I do agree it's ridiculous for anyone to have strict height requirements like that. Tinder is so superficial though, so I'm not surprised.

  • I'm not really sure. I'm not simply because I'm short, 4'11, so I don't really mind guys in the 5ft range, I actually prefer them within this range.

    I guess it's the annoying femininity issue. When you have traits that aren't seen as "feminine", you want it. So you want a man who's a bit taller so you can feel feminine.

  • Considering the average woman is like 5'5" i seriously doubt they all tell you they're 5'8" and over.

    The average man is 5'10" so you're not even short. You're average.

    And then you're on an app that is literally all about how people look and you're asking why people on it are superficial?

  • Women on Tinder are very very superficial. Good luck getting pussy off that if you aren't "ideal". In real life females aren't like that. I'm short as fuck. I'm only 5'4. Yet girls in real life are attracted to me. Not all. Of course some wouldn't touch me. Others are heavily attracted to me though.

    If I were you I just wouldn't mention height. Wait until they meet you in person. They'd have a tougher time denying you in person as opposed to online.

    • very true, it is home of the height queens. I'd just go out because I have more success in real life than in any stupid app

    • @Eric644 Yeah.

  • Yea because guys like you are desperate enough to be even put them in asking spot lol Js bro. Tinder is for getting laid easy, Glee nerds just fukd it up with their bullshit being desperate all time lol I mean I personally never had problem , I'm 6'3sh and jacked too so but I know it was more because of my different game

  • 5'10" isn't short. And I'm 5'7".

    Next time a girl says that? "Oh good I'm glad you told me you're 5'8". I only date short girls". Really though fuck them.

    I'm considered tall and I've dated guys shorter than me

  • Not every woman is short so when SHE isn't short, she wants a man taller then she so she can wear heels. Isn't that what u just said?

    • Yaa I understand but he is already taller! He is 5'10 and she is 5'8

  • I share your concern. I don't get that height thing. It's such a stupid reason.

    • It's idiotic

  • 5'10 is tall 😲 I am 5'2 and I understand most men are shorter than 6 foot. I only like if a man is taller than myself (which isn't hard) but not for looks for physical reasons. The comfort I feel when a guy is taller than me is so nice ^^ even someone 5'6 works for me. Height isn't a deal breaker.

    • Thank God for that :-D

  • just go to the bar on the weekend or talk to women at the mall or something, I have more success outside then on tinder

  • lol

    fuck tinder

  • I'm 5'9, don't wear heels ever, and think 5'10 is just fine. I'm sure there's more women who think like me out there..

    you could also put your height on your profile to weed out the women looking for giants

  • I am 5"10 and experience the same thing as you a lot. It is just a fact, being tall is desirable. There is nothing you can do, so you might as well just deal with it and not let it affect you. Do you really want a girl that shallow anyway?

  • Dude... Did you just say tinder?

  • It's around 177 cm no? If yes your tall, maybe try with short girl. For me as long as the guy is taller than me it's ok

  • brah, what type of women are you meeting? anyways, i bet you are dodging a bullet. I mean really? a woman that thinks height is a deal breaker of all things. PSH, women like that need a wake up call! and 5'10 ain't short bro.. They be missing out on some good men i betchya. Plus i always go for dudes your height since i am short. Like i don't want my partner and i to look like a bar graph... LOOOL
    :)

  • It makes sense

    Height is attractive to them

    I'm short myself. It definitely limits your options, when even girls in your height range want 6ft+. Kinda sucks, but it makes sense, is what it is bro.

  • 5'10 isn't short. Lol
    I do agree with you that tons of girls are missing out on great guys because they refuse to date a guy that is not at least __ft tall.
    Girls like to feel safe and protected so they feel that the taller a guy is, the more he can protect them, if that makes sense?

    • That's bullshit.. So you say that a guy who is 5'10 can't protect her? What the hell? You don't need height to protect any women... You will willingness to protect... A guy can be 6 but can be a sissy If 3 men attack him... Thats bullshit logic.. Seriously

    • @singlebee AY MAN no need to get all mad at me here okay? I agree with you, I know that short guys are just as capable as being protective but unfortunately, many girls don't realize that. Tall guys are always being seen as more strong and protective to most women.

  • Haha. I ask that question all the time. Right after I ask their age.

  • What? 5'10" isn't even short. I am 5'7". Seriously forget those girls and reply with something snarky back.

  • I'm 5'3 I wouldn't mind dating a guy a that's 5'10. Or shorter than me.

    But I would like for someone to reach high shelves.

  • Well maybe you should do using this bullshit so called tinder
    And Meet some real women somewhere?
    U mean this girl is judging you even before you have actually met...
    I would go for a girl like that... I hope you didn't go to the date... I mean fuck her and her standards..

  • I'm 5'6 so your height wouldn't bother me. A lot of women tend to dislike being taller than their guy, with or without heels.

  • If you're short then I'm tiny..

  • I'm pretty short (5' even) and I don't like most guys that are 5'4" or shorter since they have a bit of a napoleon complex most times... and do things that make me feel shorter than I am. I honestly don't know if more guys or girls are hung up on the whole height thing, I have a friend that's over 6' tall and she had a hard time getting dates for a while because of her height.
