Seeing this picture today I thought – what about couples where the girl is taller than the guy? What do women think about dating or having a relationship with a shorter guy? Well, for an answer I browsed around Yahoo answers and some forums and here is some interesting stuff I found out.
Here are some interesting quotes from women and men:
in my country, (Russia) it is normal to date people who are shorter than you and that works both ways like i am 5’6 and i have dated a guy who is 5’3 and that all depends if your uhh…. oh HOT enough to pull it off!
Some women care and some women don’t. It also may depend on how much of a height difference there is. If you are one to two inches shorter, then that might not matter, but if you are much shorter, then you will probably be rejected by many, but not all women.
I dated someone that was shorter than me and I hated it. I hated him, actually.
It all depends on if you’re comfortable with each other and if you really like him.
It could if he has some kind of amazing ability that can make up for his short stature.
I met this girl that was about my height. When we went out she was about two inches taller than me and sexy as hell. I’m a pretty confident guy and it didnt bother me. I’m a pretty good looking guy so I dont think it bothered her.
I personally do care about a guys height. I like tall guys. I think it looks strange when the girl is taller, but if you really like him, wear flats when you’re around him.
Don’t date shorter men. Maybe half and inch is okay, but if they are too much shorter when you dance with them their face is in your boobs. And yeah, some short men have inferiority complexes.
What can we conclude from this? First of all, height is not the most important thing, but it definitely gives some perks. If you are short, you should try to maximize your strengths and work on what you have, as well as improve your personality. Women like confident men, so don’t let those Napoleon complexes show. Look at Sarkozy here. His short stature didn’t prevent him from climbing to the top. But as you see, he still wants to be taller. I guess it is a genetic thing for men – they just want to be better than others, they want to be “alpha” as some might say.
So just remember – go for shorter girls, since they won’t care much if your height is the same as theirs, but do not be afraid of taller women as well – if you show your confidence and good personality, they won’t mind the height or lack of it.
Still, it’s better to try to improve your height as much as you can. Sure, there are limits to everything, but a few inches in a few months is a completely realistic goal and will improve your chances with the women as well!
