Short & Tall girls Anonymous 3018
Which one are you?
Do you wish you could change your height?
Does it even matter that much when it comes to dating?
And for guys, do you have a preference?
Share, I'm curious.
I'm 155cm tall btw. And yes I do genuinely wish I was taller.
I'm an average 65in/165 cm, and I wish I was smaller. I'd kill to be your height anon; feel free to take my unwanted inches.
I like my guys tall because I have a thing for size difference (prob why I want to be shorter). 6'0 and above is hawt and perfect for hugging
>Not for me
>I dislike tall guys and find the obsession other short girls have with them dumb. 5'9'' is my limit. I find even regular non-romantic interactions with tall guys extremely annoying. I don't enjoy having to constantly run after them (because of course they can never slow the fuck dowm), I don't enjoy turning to talk to them and locking eyes with their nipples instead of their face, I don't like how much ridiculous space they take up everywhere. Sexually I notice that shorter guys are, well, men at lot more as well. When I'm standing next to a guy only a few iches taller than me I can't help but notice how much bigger and broader his chest and shoulders are, how his arms and hands are different, how his waist and legs are masculine. With tall guys that effect is totally lost because they're just a huge brick wall to me.
I'm around 171-170-169 cm (for some reason it changes lmao), so pretty average by today standards.
I don't mind any kind of height and never wished i was any other height or judged someone by their height. Imo proportions are far more important than cm's, a tall person with bad proportions can seem a lot smaller and frumpier regardless of height than a short person with good proportions.
i.e i have a long torso and average-short legs, so sometimes i appear smaller in photos compared to shorter people with longer legs.
I also don't mind the height on guys and would date a dude shorter than me if i liked him, but the problem is that a lot of short guys seem to be insecure little shits with manlet complex and it gets tiring real fast so it's easier to date a tall/average dude since they aren't obsessed with height.
I think it depends more on where you are because 170 would be relatively tall where I'm from and tbh it's a perfect height for women imo. Not too short, not too tall. Just perfect.
I wish I was tall! I feel so stubby I can't layer clothing or it shrinks me, I'd be much prettier if I was taller
I really don't understand the obsession with being short, i know lots of girls like the idea of being small but it sucks
I know being tall also has it cons but I want longer legs and to be well proportioned
And I don't care for guys lol
even though i'm from a rather 'tall' country, the average guy is still shorter (and even if they're taller it doesn't mean they want a tall girlfriend as well)
Since i was a child i always suffered because of it, teachers etc. everybody 'forgetting' how young i am and then having high expectations because tall = older…
If you think kids are cruel about stuff like this, they're probably nothing against the adults i encountered; complete strangers randomnly throwing in a "Why are you so tall!?" upon our first meeting… or of course the worst: You look like a man!
That does wonders to a young girl's confidance…
So whenever i hear a shorter girl complain, i bet you were never called manly, 100% of all guys would be 'dateable' for you and if your pants are too long? - just shorten them, i have to freeze in winter since not a single coat has long enough arms! I can't just put on a pair of shoes that can magically make me shorter.
Since i know how terrible it feels to be made fun of for something you can't change, i would never openly mock a short person to their face, BUT it's always the below average ones that treat me the worst
(And look at the thread pic; it's a cute normal looking girl and not a tall girl but a freak; that's how society sees us)
im 157cm and oh boy
do i HATE it.
i cant reach alot of shelves, i have to look up to talk to people which is kinda humiliating, any single pound i gain automatically shows up.
i always wanted to be like 182 with long lengs.
well, impossible dreams amirite.
161 cm / 5'3"
I like my height. It's just slightly below average so I don't have to feel like I'm super short or have trouble finding clothes/shoes.
For some reason people actually think I'm taller than I really am, like 170 cm / 5'5". Might be the shoes or dress style idk
As for guys, I don't really care.
Bf is 5'7" and I think that's "perfect" for us since I like a height difference. I'd date a tall or short guy tho, doesn't really matter if the personality's right.
i'm 4'11/151cm and i don't want to be any taller.
i just wish my arms would ~*magically*~ extend so i could reach more stuff but that's pretty much it.
height for girls doesn't matter but sadly it matters for dudes.
I'm obviously used to it, but it gets super annoying how EVERYONE seems to get so surprised when I walk by and they walk into me, I'm short not invisible.
People feel like they can be super touchy with me, as well. More than they are with people their height or taller. Is that just me, or do others have this happen to them?
The weight thing, as other anons have mentioned. Not to mention, fucked up proportions. Even at smaller sizes, nothing off the rack fits nicely because they're just scaled down versions of normal sizes/proportions.
I'd prefer a shorter guy, but my bf is 6'1". I look like an actual hobbit in comparison. I don't like standing next to him in photos, it looks stupid.
Thank you for sharing your experience. I'll definitely admit it's easier to adjust clothing when you have too much fabric versus too little. Where I'm from, being tall = being attractive/modelesque, so I've always wanted to be taller. I'm also not attracted to men and I wish I could be taller than my potential gf, but the problem with that is then she'd be shorter than 5'4'' and I don't prefer girls that short.
This is somewhat of a case-by-case basis, but I feel like at least the negative effect of being taller where people think you are more mature than you really are (because of height) at least fades away (correct me if I'm wrong) when you are an adult. I'm on the shorter side of average, but most people refer to me as tiny, little, etc. because I'm skinny and have a babyface. It's a bad combination. I'm an adult yet people think upon meeting me I'm a child/young teen. No matter what combination of makeup/clothing I wear at work, people think I'm a volunteer because I appear "too young" to work there. I try to assert myself, but it comes across to other people as silly. It's maddening to be treated as a child when you're an adult. I feel like if I were taller, people wouldn't jump to that conclusion. It sucks, too, because when people know me well, they often comment I can articulate myself, etc. so I doubt it's due to my speech or mannerisms that people think I'm a child. I feel hopeless sometimes because I feel as if I have to work twice as hard as other people in my groups at college to be seen as an equal.
Anyway, to be fair, one of your problems is that men don't like a tall woman, and I admit I wouldn't have that problem with other people's perception, nor do I have to deal with clothes not properly covering my body. I just thought I'd share how the opposite side of people seeing you as immature when you're an adult sucks.
I think I prefer average or short girls, between 5'0" and 5'7", anything over that is too much. Tall women who appear very confident might be off putting because of the "I'm a strong woman I don't need no man" vibes.
>>3031>"I'm a strong woman I don't need no man" vibes.
Those are good vibes though
You shouldn't be surprised to see a lot of over 5'10" women who are single or going after most guys who reject them, then.
A lot of people say "Oh being tall is great, models are tall" well, but sadly i am no model; just because you're tall doesn't mean you're perfectly skinny with a gorgeous face, so just because men are attracted to models, doesn't mean they'll automatically like you as well>>3031
Many tall women might give of this vibe, but as a matter of fact being ridicouled as a child for being too tall etc usually results in less confidence
So looking cold/unapproachable + being too shy to approach someone = forever alone
Sorry but you're 5'4, you're no dwarf, so quit bragging about how hard it is to be so sm0l and babyfaced
I know right. Women who aren't under 5'1" and talk about being short or tiny are legit fucking weird and give off really gross vibes. 5'4" is quite literally the taller side of average height universally. >>3030's whole post makes them sound extremely out of touch anyway so you do the math.
Anyone who's telling a girl they're short at 5'4" is usually some dumb ass guy trying to coddle the girl or obnoxious relatives with the same motives.
No idea why you're all acting butthurt or as if I'm "bragging". It's not been a positive experience in my life at all and I feel shitty about it. I've always preferred women with mature-featured faces who are taller, and I definitely wish I were taller. It's so fucking ridiculous people think that I'm "bragging" about being treated as a child when it's humiliating.
I said:>I'm on the shorter side of average
because I am. I was not trying to imply I'm short, only that I'm on the shorter side of average and if I were taller that I think people would treat me more like an adult. Maybe it is taller universally, but where I'm from I'd say it's as I said: shorter side of average. I have to roll up most of my pants and I can't wear "mini" skirts because they aren't short enough.
>Anyone who's telling a girl they're short at 5'4" is usually some dumb ass guy trying to coddle the girl or obnoxious relatives with the same motives.
I agree, it's annoying, though it's not just guys that call me that. It feel like it's an attempt of people to put me in my place.
I wish I were 5'10"
I guess guys like shorter girls more, but it's kind of a waste since I don't have the right disposition for men to be attracted to me. If I were taller I could probably model.
I've started considering carrying around a collapsible footstool or something. Sitting chairs like a proper adult legit cuts circulation in my knees after a while. Do they make ergonomic chairs for short people? This was a huge issue for me when I used to work in an office. >>3038
If you're actually on the short side of short, hearing about how hard it is to be 5'4", even if it's on the shorter side of average for your area, sounds a little weird tbh. It's just around average. I think people are treating you that way for more reasons other than your height. I've never had people seem like they're "putting me in my place" and I sit in chairs like pic related lmao.
I'm op. Sorry for the thread gif, I didn't really mean to make people feel that way. I googled something like tall and short girls and that was one of the few interesting gifs I found, I didn't think it would be offensive at first, so I apologize.
It's not that I hate my height so much as my body type. I'm so stocky. A few inches would balance me out.
I like men who are closer to my height (within the 5'4''-5'7'' range.)
>>3038>I can't wear "mini" skirts because they aren't short enough
Wow, that must hurt!
Just face it, your height is simply average, no matter where you're from; yet you come to a thread in which both really short and really tall girls share their troubles.
One day you'll be old and then you'll wish back the days you looked younger. What do you think is worse? Being treated like child whilst being a young adult or being treated like a freak all your life?>>3039
Why is it that all of you shorter girls always go on and on about modeling?
It's one of the most unrealistic jobs and just because you're tall doesn't mean you can model, even if you're gorgeous as well, you might not make it.
And even if you would meet all these standards, maybe you simply don't want to, because there's more to life than starving yourself as a young girl and then being deemed too old at like 25?
It feels as if you've got the impression that all tall girls do is model
Most people would take being able to find a loving partner over being tall and the 0,0…1% chance of becoming a model
>>3044>Why is it that all of you shorter girls always go on and on about modeling?
Honestly that anon sounds like they think they've got the looks for modeling just not the height. Which is usually the attitude short(er) people have about tall = model. Talk to anyone who doesn't think/knows they don't have the stuff to be a model and they'll tell you just about anything else about tall girls.
>>3038>I can't wear "mini" skirts because they aren't short enough.
Huh? Where the hell are you shopping? I'm 4'9" and have no problem finding miniskirts that fit well. Higher end but affordable stores online sell xxxs and xxs if you're really having trouble but I can walk into any h&m and buy a 00 skirt and it'll fit just fine. >>3044>Being treated like child whilst being a young adult
Fuck me, I walk into restaurants and still get offered crayons as long as I'm not wearing makeup and waitresses don't even acknowledge me if eating out with family. The looks I get when I'm out in public drinking are equivalent to that of someone watching a unicorn being murdered right before their eyes.
On another note, any other short girls have a hard time finding a date because people auto assume you're a child? (Tried dating sites for years and the people on there are fucked up, seriously the amount of assholes and fetishists) I'm going to be 40 and alone before someone realizes that I'm available.
In any case, this entire thread needs to be labelled "the grass isn't greener". There are pros and cons to being tall, short, and average. Existing sucks no matter what you look like.
>>3038>I can't wear "mini" skirts because they aren't short enough.
Huh, but i'm >>3022
(so 170 cm or so) and most miniskirts barely cover my ass, if they are circle skirts they will actually show my ass if i bend even just a little bit or walk too fast so i had to resign to buying knee length skirts or close to that lenght, so idk how a 5'4 person couldn't wear them as "mini", unless you actually want them to show your ass like they do in taller people.
Where do you shop for that to be a problem for your height?
Why are you pressed? I was using the mini-skirt statement to demonstrate that (along with having to always roll up pant legs) I may be average height, but I still have "height" related fitting issues. I already established that I think it's worse for clothes overall to not be long enough.
> Being treated like child whilst being a young adult or being treated like a freak all your life?
I can't fucking order coffee without people asking me if I'm allowed to drink that. I would rather be respected now and not be affected in the workplace and in general because of how people count me out on first glance because of the age they think I look.
>Most people would take being able to find a loving partner over being tall and the 0,0…1% chance of becoming a model
A lot of people don't necessarily mean becoming a famous model, they mean being any kind of model i.e. catalog work, etc. >>3046>>3047
It's probably because I have somewhat shorter legs in comparison to my torso regarding the mini skirt sizing.
I'm not the same anon as >>3044
, i don't understand why you tagged us both as "pressed" but okay.
Also, my mother is 164 cm with short legs and most "mini" (and even midi, sometimes) skirts and dresses at h&m and similar stores still manage to be a little too short for her, so i seriously don't understand how is it so difficult to find "mini" skirts for you, that's why i was so confused why it seems to be such a huge problem because of your height.
You two must look seriously fucked up then, because even elemantary students are no longer offered crayons and are allowed to drink coffee…
But yeah i guess you proofed it to all tall miners here, that being 'treated like a child' is far worse than being called a man and monster since earliest childhood, congrats
I never said anything about proving anything to tall miners, my post was more than neutral so why did you tag me?>>3053>even elemantary students are no longer offered crayons
Lolwot. You must have 0 family members that are younger than you and/or don't go outside at all.>you two must look seriously fucked up
I'm guessing your rage and envy towards short girls glossed over the part where I said as long as I'm not wearing makeup, which all women look 10 times younger without it. Just like your rage blinded you from reading the rest of my post which has nothing to do with anything you're nagging about. You sound mental.
I’m 4’11” and never had an issue being mistaken for younger than my age. People now might think I’m in my early twenties (instead of late twenties), but haven’t been mistaken for underage since like 13…
A woman who is 5'5" at my job tell me she gets mistaken for being underage all the time. Even if I didn't know some of the men at my job's ages, I'd think they were underage if I didn't know them and saw them on the street too, but we're all in our early 20s. It doesn't mean anyone is fucked up looking, that anon sounds super salty about not being uguu tiny. It has to do with society's expectations and that 30 year old actors play high school kids on films and tv shows and people are naturally younger looking than others due to genetics, how much one smokes, drinks, lifestyle choices, etc.
What's our obsession with being "ugu so smol and tiny uwu" anyways
There's so many memes for short girls about how cute and funny it is being small I sell some of my clothing on depop and the top pic is the comment she left after I told her the dress was an American meduim and the bottom pic is her bio on her profile , why do you feel the need to tell everyone your so teeny tiny petite?? (She wanted an Asian size meduim)
i think it's okay to tell the seller your measurements! That's not the issue but she sounds like the type of person who tells everyone at any given chance that they're "smol uwu"
I sound like a bitter bitch haha so sorry! I'm short too but seeing girls like this makes me realize why tall girls hate us
>>3053>waaah people call me a freak and say i look like a monster!! im the victim! :(>"you two must seriously look fucked up"
Pot, meet kettle. You deserve all the generic "bad" things people say about you. >>3060
That's stupid to take it out on short girls over something no one can control. They're just targets for bitter bitches to take their rage out on. Maybe no one likes tall girls because they're miserable and spiteful, not because of their height which is more sought after than being short unless youre a weeb.
You okay anon? Need a hug?
Did you even read where I said I'm short myself? (I'm even smaller than her ) It's not that much of a read you could do it I believe in you
It's just annoying when girls act like it's the most important quality about themselves, being so small?? I don't get it it's annoying
>>3061>Maybe no one likes tall girls because they're miserable and spiteful>being this bitter over tall girls and generalize us as miserable because of a few anons
oof anon are you okay thats some fine projecting you are doing, need to talk about it?
That was a mistake, I messed up, I'm sorry.
I think it's because to me mini is tight, short, and around 7-8 inches long, which on me looks too long in front and is a tad long in the back for the look I'm going for. Short, pleated skirts fit fine. I'm sorry I wasn't more specific with what I meant. >>3053>But yeah i guess you proofed it to all tall miners here, that being 'treated like a child' is far worse than being called a man and monster since earliest childhood, congrats
I don't see it as a competition. They are both negative experiences to go through and it's frustrating when it happens to you when you're a kid, but then you still deal with it as an adult and it seems intolerable by then.
Personally, I feel intimidated by tall girls because my natural reaction regardless of how pretty they are is "how, they're so tall and modelesque, I wish I could look that powerful/graceful" and I feel like they'll treat me like a child because I feel smaller than normal around them. I definitely don't think anything like "monster" or "freak", though. I see being tall as a positive thing and I guess it's also because I knew multiple couples growing up where the girl was significantly taller than the guy.
//I know this one opinion doesn't matter in the long run and I'm not trying to say it doesn't suck being tall if it is for any tall anons out there
She sure looks spiteful and jealous of these tiny, smol cuties…
>>3066>Personally, I feel intimidated by tall girls
And that is one of the problems:
most people can't or probably don't even try to hide that they're scared of taller girls and no human being deserves to be looked at and treated like something scary.
That's exactly what causes tall young girls to feel so insecure, they also want to be liked, look approachable and sometimes not "strong nd powerful" but instead, for a thing they can't change, you think it's justified to treat them as some sort of 'threat' (even if you're actually just in awe)
They're normal people like anybody else, so don't look at them ar treat them as something alienish
Yes your post does, good job proving her point. Way to go out of your way to cherrypick some random image with 0 context so you can give that anon a (You). The whole thread is assblasted tall man-anons with victim complexes while the short/average ones are trying to have genuine discussion. Cringe.
It’s always girls over 5’0” who go on about how ~small~ they are.
But they are.
Anything under 5'2" is small though. The average height for women is 5'4".
Since there were always fights going on in this thread, i thought it would be nice to have separate threads for tall and short girls.
Because i'm tall myself i made one for tall girls >>3090
so maybe if a short girl would be willing to make one as well…?
>Which one are you?
i'm tall/ 5'11
>Do you wish you could change your height?
no. i've never wanted to be short. if anything it would be cool to be 6'
>Does it even matter that much when it comes to dating?
not for me. the guys that like my type aren't the ones who specifically seek out short girls, or they just don't have much of a preference for height, so it isn't a problem.
>And for guys, do you have a preference?
i usally like guys who are my height give or take. guys who tower over me freak me out since i'm so not used to it.
>Which one are you?
I guess Im in between? 170 cms
Do you wish you could change your height?
Sometimes. Ive always had body image issues and I live in a country where most women are shorter and thinner so I feel like Chewbacca over here.
Does it even matter that much when it comes to dating?
And for guys, do you have a preference?
Hmm although I prefer tall guys (cause I think its hot when they pick you up etc) most of my exes have been just some centimeters taller than me. Meaning like if I wore heels I would def be taller. I never cared tho.
>>3106>I guess Im in between? 170 cms
what are you mad about? she isn't tall nor short
Tbh this depend on the country, where I am from 5'6 is average female height, so 5'7 is not that tall. Meanwhile in USA average height is 5'3 so 5'7 is already very tall.
this is a thread for short and tall girls.
Really?>>3050>I can't fucking order coffee without people asking me if I'm allowed to drink that.
So you want us to believe that you're so smol uwu and cute uwu that people don't even mistake you for a teenager but rather for an actual child? Roflmao
From my experience, short
(actually short, not "wah I'm 5'2" so smol") girls look as bad as really tall girls, but don't get the perk of "being able to reach shit". They also get the huge disadvantage that is creepy ass men who're into them (unless they're really desperate and enjoy that, but I can't see this happening).
On the other hand, short-but-not-borderline-midget girls get all the upsides of being considered cute and feminine, fitting into clothes, etc. I find it hard to take their complaints seriously, especially when they're like >>3060
(and let's be real, lots of them are) and only "complain" to humblebrag.
>>3139>So you want us to believe that you're so smol uwu and cute uwu that people don't even mistake you for a teenager but rather for an actual child? Roflmao
No one said anything about being "smol" or "cute". Regardless of what you or anyone else thinks about my appearance or height, that is what has happened to me and it isn't fun or flattering at all, but rather embarrassing and mortifying. I don't go sperging at tall girls for "humble bragging" when where I live that's considered a beauty ideal for women (especially because I wish I were taller and even so, most people here who are getting angry at this don't wish they were short).
I also think it's interesting how when someone types herself as tall when she's more on the upper end of average that people don't get all huffy and angry like they do if someone does the same for someone who thinks they're short when they're really average.
When i was younger i hated being tall; my only wish was to magically transform into somebody smaller. It came with many disadvantages; boys and girls bullied me, adults had higher expectations, i was always treated like i was older than my friends, even though i was just a little child myself. As a teen i starved myself, constantly hunched over to make myself appear smaller.
But the older i get, the more i like it. Pics like this make me feel better. Always remember that if shorter girls are mean to you, it's always out of jealousy; they might try and convince us (and themselves) that being sm0l is cuter, but no matter how pretty they are, or how skinny, they'll never be able to stand out in a crowd (in a positive way!) like we do
Being small generally is cuter though.
Being tall stands out more in a crowd, but is usually more for being "sexy" or "amazonian"
Of course its possible to be tall and cute, small and ugly etc too. Neither is good or bad at the end of the day.
I really don't get what's so 'warrior-like' about tall girls, if anything shorter and stockier girls look a lot stronger.
Plus i'd say that the taller you are chances are that to 99% you will also have nice proportions, meaning longer legs and that's something very youthful in my opinion.
Really depends on your build either way. Lots of women, independent of height have proportional builds, heavy builds, thin builds etc.
We really shouldn't hate each other for something none of us can't control. Even if a woman is short/tall/average height and ugly, who cares besides men looking for a partner?
You're lucky, I guess? I am mistaken for a child or young teen semi-often, or get questioned whether or not I'm a child. I am offered kids menus, kids admission tickets etc. I've been to a work event with my boyfriend and two of his colleagues thought I was his little sister. He's even been mistaken for my dad before. (ugh) I don't know how you've avoided it so successfully unless you have other factors that make you look older, but I know other short girls who experience the same shit. And no, it's not humble-bragging. It's really annoying and humiliating.
I don't know why even stating this fact infuriates taller girls so much. Even in this thread- why can't short girls even mention being short or the issues that come with it, without some tall girl going "REEEEE why do you have to mention being tiny?! stop humble-bragging!" >>3070>they also want to be liked, look approachable and sometimes not "strong and powerful"
Yeah, and as a short girl I'd like to hang around tall girls without them side-eyeing me or making passive aggressive remarks about my size.
I, as a tall person have never in my life ' side-eyed' shorter girls (how could i, that would be me vs. nearly everybody else); i have however read the complaints of many tall girls in here on how insecure they are and how they've often gotten bullied.
and comments like that aren't helping either
So please excuse me that building up the confidence of fellow tall women is more of a priority than getting along with everybody…
I really don't understand why it's so hard to comprehend that being called a man is a lot more hurtful than being called a child
>I really don't understand why it's so hard to comprehend that being called a man is a lot more hurtful than being called a child
Who called you a man other than dumb bitches in HS? Studies prove tall women are seen as more attractive, wealthy and more intelligent. Being perceived as a dumb child and not being taken seriously is more harmful than that, yes. Especially in a workplace environment.
>>3147>I really don't understand why it's so hard to comprehend that being called a man is a lot more hurtful than being called a child
………you do realize being considered a child as an adult means you are treated in a way that comes across as insulting to your intelligence, self-awareness, abilities, autonomy, etc. whereas being called a man doesn't mean you lack those characteristics.
Negative experiences such as bullying in your childhood can change your entire life. If i was told i'm some sort of giant abomination for the first 18 years of my life, will the way i perceive myself and therefore how i perform in a professional environment suddenly improve, just because some studies show, that men find tall women (meaning: models) attractive?
You will never know how it feels to be called a man, it's something one can't describe; and no, not just some bitches in HS, also men and some of your fellow short girls here for some reason still find joy in doing that…
I'm 5'0" but oblivious. I don't feel like a child and I have a disgusting resting bitch face.
I'm sure people try to treat me like that, but since I'm so oblivious and angry looking I just kind of…brute force myself out of the treatment? Or steamroll my enemies into submission, idk.>>3150
Lol being tall may be more of prerequisite but as an ugly, angry looking dwarf, I've been given the "man treatment" day in and day out. I mean, people have tried to treat me almost like an actual incel, the "ugly, short man treatment".
I have no words besides my sympathy for how you might feel. I personally found that playing to my strengths help me get over the public perception, but everyone is different.
Anon, I'm sorry you had to deal with that kind of treatment from others, and I'm not trying to undermine your experiences. Yes, bullying affects people long-term. The same way taller girls calling me frumpy, midget, baby and undermining me and shit has affected me long-term.
>You will never know how it feels to be called a man, it's something one can't describe
And you will never know how it feels to be called one of the numerous, mean, nasty, horrible things I've been called for being small.
The grass is always greener on the other side etc.>>3151
You sound like another girl I knew. She was a tiny redhead but always had RBF on and was really abrasive. She was actually quite intimidating despite her size. I kind of admired it in a way, but I could never be like that, it's just the total opposite of my personality.
>>3150>You will never know how it feels to be called a man, it's something one can't describe
people won't call you a man just
because you're tall.
As someone who is short-ish, I got called and confused for a man a lot because of my manners, clothes and sometimes face. So it's not just tall girls who go through this. And I'm sorry you had to go through it too, people suck.
Now if we could stop the whole "x have it worse" that would be great because there's never a winner and the whole this is subjective. [spoiler]and keeps happening in every x vs x thread (skinny vs fat/ big tits vs small etc). It's annoying.[/spolier]
fuck i regret making this thread.
tbh, tall vs short discussion is never worthy it. Really.
It's not your fault that people can't help themselves into making it a "who has it worse" contest.
I wanted to make a similar thread about breasts and underwear (as in tips, whats normal, helpful links) but it would've boiled down to the same thing as here
we could have an underwear thread, but i always see anything to do with breasts devolve into stupid crap…
i'm 185 cm and wouldn't mind being super tall like 200+cm. My parents (physically) abused me and were taller but only slightly and would always make reference as to how it meant they were superior and a complex was created. I would like a shorter bf/gf.
lol you're in a tight spot for sure
I guess you'll just have to keep trying people for love, until one of them doesn't get intimidated. You could probably find some tiny man that wants you to take out your sexual frustration on him.
If she's 6ft and wants a shorter bf/gf then it actually sounds like she's in a great position to find what she's looking for. Also tall girls are like straight-up Tolkien elves.
Elves and men from Numenorean descent (like Aragorn).
oh i don't know frodo baggins
I'm 154cm tall, I don't mind because tall men see me face from the most cutesy angle.
Never gonna date a man under 180cm though, since I'm terrified my son would then be about my height.
this has to be a joke holy shit
>>4264>Never gonna date a man under 180cm though, since I'm terrified my son would then be about my height.
This thread is full of men delete quickly!
>I'm am smol, 155cm or 5'1" like OP.
>Oh my God yes, I absolutely fucking hate being so smol, it makes me look fat even though I'm a normal weight for my height because everything's so compressed and I can't reach anything in my own fucking house and have to ask other people to do shit for me, god damnit I hate being a short fucc.
>I couldn't tell you since I don't know what's going on in other people's heads, but I don't think it's a huge issue, except for it making me look thicc.
>I tend to have a preference for taller guys, but less because they're tall and more because they're less desperate and creepy. I've been in a relationship with a 6'1" guy for 4 years now, feels pretty good.
>>4913>but less because they're tall and more because they're less desperate and creepy
This just seems like you're desperately trying to justify your preference. You don't have to.
god will understan…
Nah, I have been attracted to short guys in the past…until they open their mouths and say some serial killer level shit or start following me around everywhere or desperately plead for my attention. Have had sexual relations with a short guy before because he was actually sane, but in my experience, most aren't.
>>6219>tfw manlets are like this to women shorter than them but women who are taller than them have to fight for their attention
I feel bad for you and
Liking short men is a curse. Why are they the way that they are
lmao what the fuck are you on about?
She's saying a lot of short guys are crazy and lack the ability to laugh things off because of their height.
The gym types are even scarier, because of how easily they snap, the lifting is clearly compensation for their height, and you don't want to be around if he feels slightly emasculated by a six foot guy and he takes it out on you.
I don't know if you're sheltered or a short guy.
I hear about this all the time on the internet but I've never seen it happen before. I'll do what I always do and just assume it's an "American thing".
Neither. I don't even disagree with what you brought up because that does actually happen, but that's not actually what she said. I was just confused by the fact she tried to draw a line between being a stalker and being short. I don't think I understand.
>>6223>something I'm unfamiliar with is just America and I sleep better
lmfao goddamn this sounds 2003 becky as fuck.
Actually with height that might make sense that America has a higher rate of it, since they have larger minority groups compared to most first world nations.
African Americans are two inches shorter and Asian Americans are five inches shorter than the average White American.
Would be like being Dutch in China and getting bullied for being a lanky monster.
>I've never seen it happen before
Yeah, sheltered, called it lol.
>>3018>Average height (5'6/167cm)>I wish I was a bit taller, like 3 inches or ~7 cm taller, just because it would make me feel less like a child when I'm around 6'0+ men, but I'm fine with my height besides that>Most guys like my height unless they're shorter than me. As a former man (5'11/180cm) in my life phrased it "you're tall enough that you look like an adult but you're short enough to throw around in the bedroom". He is former for a reason but I've seen this sentiment reflected among others.>For guys, I've liked everything from slightly shorter than me to 6'0+. However, really tall guys have always made me feel uncomfortable since I was a little girl. The sheer size of the lads make me scared they'll hurt me.
> 161cm / 5ft 3in?
>it would be nice to be a bit smaller
>I don’t think so, I prefer taller people dating wise
Same height and I too wish I was taller. Like 6'2" or something though (although I could settle for 5'9").
I just avoid voluntarily interacting with (much) taller men because they make me want to die. I feel threatened by anyone
bigger than me regardless of gender tbh, and the thought of them being attracted to me like:>throw around the bedroom
makes me want to vomit.
Men under 5'3" are amazing gifts.
Where do you live that 5'6 is an average height for women?
I'm 5'8, kind of in that weird in-between realm where kids point and say "wow she's tall!" but guys make fun of me for being small.
I don't think I'd change my height since being able to reach the top shelf on my own makes life easier.
I'd be lying through my teeth if I said that being taller than me wasn't an attractive quality in men, though.
>>6561>5'8">guys make fun of me for being short
jfc, are your male friends giants or are you Scandinavian or something?
I'm a leaf and you'd be the size of an average guy here. I'm a tad shorter than you and still taller than 1 in 10 men kek.>inb4 tall shaming
No harm meant, tall is good. Not less feminine or anything, etc.
lmao probably, I blend in with my sheets pretty well.
I live in Texas, not sure what the averages are here but most other girls I meet are somewhere around my height. Most of my male friends are at least 6 feet tall
i'm 4'11! that means i'm legally obligated to receive headpats.
i would not change my height.
i don't date, so i wouldn't know.
5'6" and a half here. Sometimes I'll exaggerate tell people I'm 5'7" if they ask, but there's been a couple occasions where a woman stood closer to me and said "no, you're shorter than that because I'm 5'7"." /shrug
I feel really fucking short (and no I'm not from [insert European country where everyone is tall], I'm a burger). I see women in flats who completely tower over me every single day on the train and just about everywhere else. Even my best friends are both 5'10" and it feels like pic related when we're together.
My ideal height would be 5'11", I think. I'm really into androgynous fashion and I feel like I don't quite pull off the andro look at my height. I tried shoe lifts for a while but found they ruined my shoes, so tough shit for me I guess.
Short women have really bad proportions. Short legs. Generally, your limbs tend to get longer with height not so much your torso. So when I sit next to my friends with various heights, we are almost all similar height only when we stand up it changes.
I'm 5'9 myself. I'd say that something like 5'7 is ideal. Not too tall to even tower over some men, but not so small that your proportions look silly.
Men IRL don't care much about height. It seems to be that women obsess far more over it.
I'm around 155 cm - 157 cm (5'2 ish) Yeah, I wish I was tall. I want to have long legs because I have trouble pulling off skirts or wear high tops sneakers/boots with my stubby legs. The only way to counter that chunkiness would be to lose weight..my BMI is around 20, so there's no helping my case.
No, height in dating doesn't matter to me. Majority of men are taller than me anyways.
I have trouble pulling off skirts, high tops sneakers and boots with my stubby legs*
Just go the other way and weightlift for thunder-thighs. That way they can make up for their lack of length with plenty of width!
I'm short (153cm) and always been so insecure and self-conscious about it.
All my life I assumed you had to be tall to be pretty or hot, and to be considered attractive by most people. I really liked the amazonian/goddess/elf/ethereal look some models have and thought I could never get a bf because I'm not like that, I'm short and can never look hot or sexy. I thought I could never be in a relationship and started to accept it. I just took it for granted that guys, especially tall guys, would never like a short girl like me so I would make myself like short guys only and when I saw that they had tall girlfriends or showed interest in tall girls I'd get quite upset tbh and would hate myself even more. I liked some guys who were handsome or had a cute face but happened to be tall so I would tell myself “I can’t like him, he's too tall for me, I'd never have a chance".
I'd obsess so much about my height that I'd search for celebrities' heights and if they were short I'd feel a bit better. I'd search the height of every famous person I could think of and finding shorter actresses or celebrities was harder but when I did I'd feel like "wow, they made it despite being short" or "it's crazy how people think they're attractive when they're so short!".
It's like I was in my own world or in a bubble or something. And I had this mindset till 19 or 20 (I'm 22 now), it's crazy now that I think about it. Oh and I'd listen to subliminals to get taller, and spend hours trying to find ways or exercises to increase my height. It never crossed my mind that maybe there might be some tall women out there who wish they were shorter, I just took it for granted that they were happy and confident about their height because why would anyone want to be short anyway?
I'm 174, and even though I was pretty insecure about it when I was younger (pic related), I really love it now and would enjoy being taller.
I used to be into tall guys, but since I've been with my 195cm bf for three years now, it doesn't really matter to me anymore. After a while you stop noticing the height difference anyways.
A-are you implying your 195cm bf isn't tall?
>>6777>It's like I was in my own world or in a bubble or something. And I had this mindset till 19 or 20 (I'm 22 now), it's crazy now that I think about it.
How did you get over your insecurity?
5'. Being short, small, and baby faced means people rarely taking you seriously. That doesn't feel good. The jokes/references about my height I'm mostly happy with it, I just wish other people would shut up sometimes. I'm not trying to make is sound negative, being me is good. Luckily unlike the others, juniors section. While harder to find adult clothes, I can always find at least something at reasonable prices.
>Does it even matter that much when it comes to dating?
I didn't perceive any negatives from normal guys, emphasis from normal guys. For guys too tall can be intimidating, 5'10 (my guy) is perfect.
I'm saying he is very tall and after dating him for a while I stopped noticing, which is why I don't care about height in men as much as I used to
My height is pretty average and I'm happy with it. It doesn't really matter when it comes to dating, and I have no height preferences when it comes to guys.
The first "couple" makes me sad about my height. It looks like an awkward dad giving his daughter a peck, not like a loving boyfriend kissing his girlfriend. I'll make sure to only fall for guys around my height kek.
>>6791>caring about how your relationship looks to others
Why are so many people like this?
Because we live in a society surrounded by other people.
You know, just now I saw a male user on Youtube making fun of men who date short, cute-looking girls for being pedophiles. I wouldn't want my boyfriend to be seen as a pedophile by his male friends.
Those hypothetical boy's friends don't sound a lot like friends, to me. Maybe your hypothetical boyfriend should make some new ones.
I love my height. Only down side is finding clothes that fit proper and I can't reach cabinets. I wish I had a tall gf like in the OP I would worship her.
I'm 5'7/170 cm. I like my height, sometimes I wish I was taller but never shorter. I think short girls are cute and I would like to have a short best friend to hug sometimes.
I like tall guys. Extremely tall guys. I like being tall myself but I like feeling small. Does that make sense?
To me it looks cute. What a small girl can also do is also push on the guy's shoulders and force him down onto his knees, while she bends forward slightly and kisses him that way. Cute as hell.
Very tall for my people(Japan) at 188cm
Sometimes wish I was 5'0 but my legs helped me a lot in track and field events and its a somewhat fun social dynamic.
It limits the amount of guys that are interested most definitely. Eh more guys are looking for a casual fling with a tall girl than a relationship in my local experience
Some girls like it, girls I was involved with seemed to like me being so much taller than them
>Which one are you?
5'8 so taller side of average
>Do you wish you could change your height?
Sometimes I wish I could be taller but I like my height
>Does it even matter that much when it comes to dating?
It's hard to find guys my height or shorter that aren't extremely insecure about their height.
>And for guys, do you have a preference?
I love manlets.
This picture is how I feel 24/7.
>Which one are you?
Tall, I'm 5'10.>Do you wish you could change your height?
I'd be willing to give literally everything to be shorter.>Does it even matter that much when it comes to dating?
I've never had a bf.>And for guys, do you have a preference?
Most guys are shorter than me and even if they happen to be taller then they might still not like tall girls. I've never had anybody be interested in me, therefore I can't afford to be picky.
i'm 154-156 cm
i like being petite tbh
i have my entire identity ingrained in being the "smol one" and sometimes i think it makes my anorexia worse because it's been ingrained in my head as a child that i'm the "skinny, petite one," so i have to maintain that image
