I've been browsing a few profiles on here, and I've got to say, that the majority of the guys that I've seen don't seem to like women over 5'9", and some of them (the men) were at least 6'0". Seriously, what is the deal with that? I could understand a short guy or average height guy not want to be with a tall woman, but about those tall men out there? What gives?

its all a matter of preference take me for instance, i am 5 '7' and i want a man to be at least 5'10 ' i like a man who is taller than me, besides i love wearing heels and i would hate to be looking down at my date. and i am so tired of all these men who are height challenged that approach me and tell me that they dont mind the height thing so why should it bothered me. i just want a man that i can look up to and not down uponed

Hey Scarlet, like your comments (here and elsewhere) - you're awfully wise for a young gal! You make a good point; same too can be made about race, weight etc. I'm fascinated as I reenter the world of singles by all the presuppositions it seems most folks have about what will 'work' for them in a relationship (e.g., what they are looking for PHYSICALLY in another human being) I'm discovering I have a few too but mostly I'm just going with the flow and (trying) to be open to anyone who is intelligent, fun, honest and kind . . .and who I wouldnt be embarassed to introduce to my kids or mother someday (am I setting my sights to high?). Here's a question that I'm really struggling with: if we are in a 'bell curve' sort of world, why do SO MANY folks here say they are above average/good looking/hot etc. in describing their looks. I'm really perplexed about this. I guess you could argue its self-selection (e.g., folks dont join this site generally speaking unless they already have a high opinion about their looks so I should expect to see an unusual number of really great looking people). But, I'm not sure. As I look at some profiles, see the verbal self-assessment the person has made (e.g., 'I'm hot'), and then see the visual presentation, which in my humble opinion doesnt correlate . . . I dont know, makes me wonder. Beauty (as in skin color, height, weight, etc.) is sure in the eye of the beholder isnt it!?

For me height and weight is a preference coming from my natural instinct. I'm not making an attempt to be shallow but naturally, from the depths of me, I'm mostly attracted to men who are much larger than myself. Call it my animal instinct but making love to a short and/or thin man is like being with a girl. A woman needs masculinity to help her feel like a woman when she's most vulnerable. People ask me why I like fat men. I don't see them as fat, just someone I can feel even more secure with. It's all in the mind, something you can't see with the eyes. With that said, many men don't like tall or bbw because it's not in their animal instinct. He just wants a woman of different standards, a smaller stature means more vulnerability I guess. Doesn't mean you're inadequate as a person. Just means there is someone else out there who will want you regardless of the physical.

I think tall ladies are absolutely delightful. If some of you guys are too timid to step up to the tall ones, you're missing out.

I once read an article about the "magic" 6 foot height for men... 6 feet tall is about the 80th percentile for white males... Meaning only 20% are taller, and 80% are shorter. Being 5'11" myself, I once did an experiment and changed my profile by adding 1"... The overwhelming increased response made comments of women claiming men to be shallow quite superficial... :o(

I have no problem with taller women, but at 5'8" they might have a problem with me. Apparently, if a woman is over 5'1" their height requirement for men starts at 5'11" talk about unrealistic. My 2 cents. These blogs are kinda fun!

I'm having the opposite problem. The majority of women I find attractive on dating sites are attracted to taller men. Short of me wearing 3 inch high heels, I'm not five ten. Oh well. I like women tall or short. We all have our likes and dislikes; our personal preferences. We are not going to be able to change the way our partners are attracted to others. The search continues. Good luck.

I don't understand why men want to be with shorter women either. I was a late bloomer and until the age of 17 was 5'5' tall, so I was always used to going out with women that were taller than I was. So when I shot up over the next year to where I am at 6'2" it has never bothered me being with a taller woman. I guess some men may find a tall woman to be unapproachable....or at least that is what they may feel....as to my thoughts on the matter...i will not let the height of the woman keep me from introducing myself to her....even if she is taller. Cheers Vasilis

Hard to say. I myself like women in about the 5'7" to 5'9" range, as in a nice pair of heels, that makes them about the perfect slowdance height. :o) But 5'8" would be in the top 5th percentile for women's heights, meaning that they were taller than 95% of all women. That is a fairly small minority.
