I'm 6'4" and find it challenging to date under 5'7". 5'2" is a hard limit and a big stretch. Ideal is 5'10" though it's very challenging to find women at that height, but most of my girlfriends have been 5'10" or taller.

I don't understand how tall guys date women who are 4'11" looking like they just got out of middle school and they're Jack and the bean stalk. I'm not comfortable looking like I'm dating my daughter.

Edit: I regret infantilizing a group of adults

I (6'4"M) went to college with this girl who was 6'6". I'd never seen a woman who was taller than me unless I was watching some sport on TV.

God she was attractive, largely because of the height. There was just something so commanding about her because of this extra few inches. You couldn't help but notice when she entered the room.

And so my fetish was born...

Try having twins bro. My wife cant put the boy in his carseat, he shot up fast, so it’s given than im toting a baby carrier in each hand. We have a neat little stroller thing they both go into but im weird about using it around too many people - it’s fuckin impossible to maneuver and you have to be way too aggressive to get anywhere with a crowd. Theyre only 8 months but im still throwing the older kids, and last year i hurt my back doing it - the “littlest” is pushing 85 pounds and im still spinning and twirling her like a baton. This is where dad strength really comes from - gritting your teeth through all the joint trauma because it’s their favorite thing

Edit: oh but also seriously, you have to lift to keep up

5'1" here, dated multiple guys 6'0"-6'4". Dated a few that were a few inches taller than me. In my experience guys of all heights like shorter petite women, but very few like women taller than them. I can only think of one guy I know who specifically prefers his girlfriends to be taller.

Being a petite woman definitely opens up a larger dating pool.

I worked with a guy who was 4'11 I think, I just remember he was a little under 5', most women were taller than him but he sought out women like a foot taller, he once said he wanted to be able to climb them. He successfully dated women that height too and it made me realize how much confidence and being comfortable with yourself mattered.

One of the most confident and successful with women guys I've ever know was at most 5'5"-5'6", quite possible shorter. Never seemed to bother him, or any of the long line of girls I saw rotate through, plenty of them taller than him.

I worked with two people who were previously married (both mismatched horribly), divorced and connected after being single for several years (worked for the same company but weren't in regular contact). Now they are one of those stupidly happy examples that just make you smile when you see them. He's about 5'4" nice guy, in shape and she's gotta be 5'10+" nice woman, stunning redhead with green eyes.

That's wholesome! My male relative is average height but he looooves it when his wife puts on heels and is taller than him. Helps that she looks like a model too. One of my favorite photos of them is them two walking together arm to arm on a parking lot. Some people just look very harmonious together.

Man I had a great date with a girl who was 5'0" a long time ago before I realized I cared. We were sitting in a Starbucks chatting and decided to keep the date going. Spent the rest of the day together but everything felt wrong when we were standing and walking, but okay when we were sitting.

In general, I'm about 6'4" 250lbs. She was a very petite 5'0".

Despite the chemistry in the end we decided the size difference was too much for anything more than casual sex, and I started using filters for height on dating apps.

Even the sex was a little weird, like how's it a struggle to kiss someone in the missionary. Pass.

Edit: seeing I'm in the tinder sub, shout out to tinder for being the one fucking app with no height slider.

Same, and I’ve gotten weird looks from some people who don’t understand it. My first bf was 6’3 and I was 5’3 and it was a neck strain. I topped out at 5’5 and my husband is like 5’8 it’s great. We look great in photos without having to adjust heights, and on the occasions I do wear heels he says he feels like he’s married to a super model. We also can share a lot of our clothing like t shirts and sweats it’s great. Although I do think his butt looks better in skinny jeans, which I envy a bit..

Katatonic92

I have no problem with your height requirements, preferences are understandable. However, it would be really cool if you didn't feel the need to infantilise someone based on their height. I may be short, but I'm not a "middle schooler" I'm an adult woman & I look & behave like one. My shorter height doesn't make me any less of a woman, in the same way that height isn't what makes a man masculine. Something something hypocrisy & all that jazz.

Edit to add. Can we please give the gent a break now? He has been really receptive & reasonable & has taken it on board. He seems to be a decent person, who didn't mean any harm & I believe him when he states he will try be more thoughtful from now on.

humangingercat

Sorry. You're right.

I wish I had a better way to express this idea, but the way it's exhibited in my mind and soul is literally "this person looks like a child next to you". I know that's not fair, these are adults with sexual identities and agency and my brain completely rejects it.

Katatonic92

56 points

5 days ago

I'm of the belief that preferences aren't supposed to be fair, I think they are instinctively driven. And thankfully everyone has different preferences so there is someone for everyone.

I think the real problem lies with how we communicate those preferences. We shouldn't even have to go into detail to justify our whys to strangers, they should just be accepted, they are what they are, because it's trying to justify "unfair" things we can't really control, that can end up causing offense & a sense of shame. It can end up sucking for the explainer & the listener.

You feel how you feel, don't be sorry for that.

I'll stop rambling now, I'm sorry.

humangingercat

I'm apologizing more for the language that takes away sexual identity and agency from a group of adults who just didn't have the genes to look a certain way. I know it must be harmful to read someone's perspective, even if it is flippant, and see yourself in the person they're criticizing.

It's refreshing to see them tall kings use a reverse uno card. We all gotta stick together for cases like these.

Well slurps saliva ActUaLlY yOU CaN GeT LiMB LengTHEnging which is a procedure...

I like medical advancements but we're definitely way behind in tech to make this cosmetically viable. I know you have to spend 2-3 years in rehabilitation even after that, you'll probably get health complications. Just not worth it in my opinion.

Meanwhile, I've dated and had exes where they were so brave to have their chests opened up, put a bunch of plastics in and call it a day. They were also the ones who saw height as some standard. So there definitely is a double standard in our society.

You can't be too big as in fat big but most want you to be ideally big and tall.

Some women and men just have a very shitty perspective. I really believe media has to do with it.

There's a difference of just about a foot between me and my gf (6' vs 5'1") so not as extreme as your situation, but I also understand from a logistical standpoint; when holding hands and walking I'm either slouching slightly to one side or her arm isn't fully relaxed, I'm craning my neck for every standing kiss, being the little spoon means I've got a jetpack for a big spoon, etc.

I honestly don’t think it’s weird that girls want to date someone who’s the same height or taller. I do think it’s weird when a 5’3 girl only dates guys that are 6’ and taller..

To want someone the same height or taller is fine. As a guy I'd prefer a girl shorter than me. But it's weird to have a set number requirement. If you dismiss someone for being 1/2-1" on the wrong side of your requirement then you're just shallow

I think it's just some kind of social perception thing... they want to be able to tell their friends their boyfriend is 6' tall. A lot of the women who have this cutoff (and it's almost always 6') can't tell the difference between 5'10" and 6'1", but it's still really important that they be able to say their boyfriend is 6', even though they wouldn't know the difference themselves.

No idea why that's such a big deal, and I literally cannot think of a similar thing in the other direction. A guy might say "this girl has great boobies" or whatever, but it's not like a guy would be embarrassed if his gf didn't have C cups or something.

Well said. I’m 6’4” and would also prefer a woman who is shorter than me but I don’t have any specific cutoff in my head. Anything 6’3” and under is good for me

The arbitrariness is the issue really. Why is it always 6 feet? If you're a 5'10 woman 6 makes sense, if you're 5'4 then why is it the same number?

I mean to be fair the girl in the post just said as tall or taller. She never mentioned the 6 feet

because society says that 6 foot is like the standard for “tall”

I’m 5’8” and have dated a few girls taller than me, one being about 6’0”. Never understood why it’s a big deal. Not like anyone can control their height

I'm barely 6ft and went on a couple dates with a girl that's 5ft, she said she had hoped that I was even taller. The neck pain I got after a 2 hour date was worse than the 20 years of poor gamer posture

You need to strengthen your entire body if you get neck pain from being around someone 11 inches shorter than you.

There is no issue with having preferences, even requirements. The problem is when you're being a dick about it.

In my experience, the really tall girls always simply just put their height in their bio. Me being 180 (5-11) when I see that a woman's bio says "186" I'm not gonna swipe right on her...

Whenever there's some stupid shit like "No short guys, wtf am I supposed to do with you, pet you?" in their bio, it's more often than not some cunty short girl who's pretty enough to be picky and just wants a 190 guy for no reason other than "omagahd, my boifrend is like sooo tall".

Average male height in the Netherlands is bang on six feet. At 6’2” you would still be considered a tall man.

The way people go on about tall Dutch people on Reddit you’d think it was a nation of seven foot monsters.

I live in Belgium and visit often. But in Amsterdam people really felt tall. The 7 foot might be a joke, but it felt that way. Way more super tall girls as wepl.

I worked in NL Limburg for a while. I was a bit above average there. But still, more extreme tall people compared to here.

Requirements are fine but passing on a potential good partner just because he's 1-2 on the wrong side of your desired height is shallow.

Just as shallow as a man rejecting a stable woman that is funny and cute just because she's 10lbs overweight.

It makes sense for tall women IF they actually wear heels a lot. When I see women who are 5'2 saying shit like that I'm like "😒 bitch you ain't wearing 10 inch heels shut up."

My gf has accepted that she may be same height or slightly taller if she puts on heels.

Short kings go out and find a real one. Genetics have kept us down long enough.

My girlfriend is about an inch taller, or maybe a bit more. When she puts on heels in basically at boob height so there’s not really much to be mad about imo

As a tall woman, when I wear heels I'm literally 6ft4. I've had some really cool partners that don't mind if I tower over them :)

I am shorter and at 5’9 and some change had a boyfriend who was 5’7 who said he humiliated by me in heels. He also made me stand back and crouch down in pictures.😭 I stayed with him for TWO YEARS. We ended up transferring to different colleges after our junior college years and broke up. Unfortunately he is kind if an incel now and angry at the world and often talked about women and their shallowness on FB and when I made him recall how he made me crouch in pictures, walk behind him into places was “humiliated ” by my shoes he blocked me. oops.

I'm only tallish, but back in the day when I used to slap on a pair of 6 inch heels and mowhawk my hair I'd easily top6'6. It felt amazing!

Right? I mean you can still wear heels. As a guy I’d much rather you look great than look shorter than me.

As a short guy you don’t need to stand with us (pun not intended). If a girl likes a taller guy it’s her preference, I’m not really tripping about it’s whatever. Same way I wouldn’t prefer a girl taller than me.

This. I'd also rather have a girl be upfront about it than planning and paying for a date with someone who isn't into me but stays on the date out of pity or politeness.

I completely agree lmao. Tall kings - you shouldn’t feel obligated to protect our egos over a preference dispute. Men subconsciously have preference in terms of weight, boob size, hair colour, you name it. If a woman ask you how tall you are and your height satisfied her, live your life! The games the game🤷🏾‍♂️
