Only attracted to tall guys?

Like Tree11Likes

I like men to be at least taller than me. It's silly but I can't help it. I'm sure I am missing out on many great guys because I don't look twice at them.

Does it matter to you? Did anyone use to think like me but then overcome their prejudice?

I once saw one of those TED videos where the guest speaker explained this preference among women was completely cultural, not biological at all.
No, I can't say I am only attracted in taller guys. I have dated several men who were taller, almost my exact same height, and shorter. While I do have a fondness for big, tall, viking vampires (hence my Alex Skarsgard crush)... I don't really have a specific set of physical requirements. It's typically something else that attracts me.

I will say that the shorter guys could indeed pose awkward moments. There is a year book picture of me dancing with my 8th grade boyfriend (if only for a fleeting moment), at a school dance. It's pretty funny, and cute

I'm tall (for a woman) and I grew up in a tall family...and I admit there was a bit of tall snobbery at play. I just think taller is better (sorry but that's just how I feel).

Yes, a man's height matters to me. The taller he is, the better. I dated two guys who were 6'9" and I found it very attractive...tho any taller might be a bit too tall.

I won't date anyone shorter than 5'10". But my preference is 6" and over. The last Iguy I dated longterm was 6'2" and it was great.

Looks are important, physical attraction is what separates your best friend from your partner. I don't mean looks in the sense of necessarily classically/ commercially attractive, most of us have things that turn us on or off.

The guys I've fancied the most have been fairly tall and slim to skinny with broad shoulders, other than that most have been unusual looking and I definitely like a 'bit of rough'!! Don't mind bald and/ or character lines, either can be sexy on the right guy.

Don't usually go for guys that are either significantly overweight or muscle bound nor pretty boys. I don't beat myself up for not fancying women, so I am not going to beat myself up for what doesn't do it for me in a man.

^ Nor should you. We all have different reasons for "our" attractions.

I do love to tease my friend, restlessly, because he has a strict list of what he finds to be physically attractive (that is tall, dark haired and handsome by all general accounts) but always seems to date the opposite of that list. As I have mentioned several times, he is also color blind. Red heads/gingers kind of scare him (south park, perhaps? lol. idk), but he has dated several ginger guys and did not even known it. He thought their hair was brown. I also tease him when I mention someone I find attractive, he flips over their long hair being unattractive, and then wonders who the total hottie is when the guy cuts his hair.

He cracks me up.

I wouldn't say I have a strict list, but I'm definitely with you on the tall thing. I'm tall and I don't want to feel like an amazon. My boyfriend is about five inches taller than me and I think it's perfect. I wouldn't be comfortable with a shorter guy. Not to say that I would have turned him down if everything else had been perfect but I would prefer height.

One thing I always thought was strange...or maybe just plain stupid...is how the media will fuss about celebrity couples where the man is shorter. Why should anyone care what shoes Mrs. Sarkozy wears is beyond me.

It's well known movie producers cast women to be shorter than their male counterparts, or they resort to tricks to give that illusion. Katniss, as I recently read somewhere, is a rare exception.
Definitely, the physical chemistry is much stronger when the guy is taller than me and just tall in general. Tall for me is 6'0 and up and short to me is 5'8 and under. I'm 5'6 (and always in heels). My ex who I had the most amazing connection with is 5'8 and usually appeared shorter than me.

I dated a guy my height but we were off in many other ways. I wonder if he were taller, if things would be different. The tallest guy I seriously dated was 6'. that was nice. It's not necessary but I'm pretty sure I could not be attracted to someone shorter than me. I'm not that tall so it's not an issue.
I personally like plain ol' average height guys. I have never really been attracted to tall guys. I like to feel close to my guy and with tall guys I just don't think I would feel exactly the same, being to tall would make me feel distant since I am on the shorter side. I'm 5'4. But height isn't something that I find to be too important. If I found the right guy for me, I honestly wouldn't care how tall he is.

I don't agree with hard and fast rules like "I'm ONLY attracted to tall guys". Even if you've never previously been, maybe a guy who's super attractive to you in every other way will be shorter and you'll find him attractive.

It's one thing to not be hitting on guys you don't think are hot, but I think people are only hurting themselves when they turn down a guy because of one physical characteristic, like height. If you otherwise find him charming, what's one date to see if you are attracted to him beyond something like height?

I am attracted to tall guys, especially those from 6' to 6'3. I am only 5'2, so it isn't often that I meet guys shorter than me, though it has happened. I got this preference from my female relatives. Like Who Me, it isn't set in stone. I have been attracted to two short guys - 5'4 and 5'6, but they were both exceptionally good-looking. I noticed that if a guy is tall and makes me laugh, he can win me over, even if he isn't very handsome, not so much for short guys. I do get annoyed, though, when a short guy tells me not to wear heels so I am not taller than him. You are 5'4, shouldn't you be used to women being taller than you?! Lol

^ I like to think of my friend as a perfect example of how a great deal of it is sometimes BS. He doesn't even know what your hair or eye color really is. Just what he thinks it is, and he is often wrong. I'm always perplexed that he doesn't see the same exact face, despite the length of hair. He literally can not recognize the person after the hair is cut, a good 90% of the time, and is automatically blinded it. It's a wall or a human quirk he can not get past. Like height, or ...

He will never get past that. He might turn down the same guy and then go out with him a year later once he cut his hair and have no memory of speaking to him before. Though, granted, that won't happen with height.

But, there are plenty of guys that people have tried to set me up with, and I have had no interest in them what so ever. For me it comes down to not having anything past a friendship rather than a physical attraction (this one's eyes, that ones smile, this ones sense of humor, something about his presence, it's all pheromones with this one, etc). No matter how much they push, I won't change my mind on it, because it is not there.

I think we are all guilty on missing out by someone else's standards.

But my friend should still admit he is completely wrong

I'm 5'3 and in the last two years I've liked two guys. One is my height and the other is a bit shorter than me. I do prefer taller guys I have to admit but it isn't a must in my list.

A few things I look for are some physical traits like smile, hair, presence, and most importantly to me style. He has to know how to dress himself and have his own style lol

There's this thing with guys and hair though, I call it hair swag where the slightest movement of their hair makes them look very attractive. I don't know if anyone else likes this?

And yes I prefer long hair on guys from eyebrow length to chin length.

I personally can think of several movies where the woman was taller than her male counter part. It is silly if some cast women to be shorter, though I have heard of men in the lower 5 ft range asking for a co star that was closer to their height.

My greatest musical love, Prince, is 5'2 and Appollonia is 5'4. Prince was closer to 5'4 in his heels.

He appeared to be closer to the same height as Kristin Scott Thomas, who is 5'6.

But again, he was jacked up. He still dances like a mad man in his heels.

He dated both women.

I agree sometimes tall guys have horrid personalities. But then again that goes for anyone regardless of genes lol. I can see you may like certain thinga like braces, scruff, pretty eyes etc. But sometimes it takes a moment for you to fall head over into someone you hadn't expected lol. Just keep you eyes peeled so you don't miss over. And be sure to look over the tall guy who asks you to dance's shoulder cause there just might be someone worthwhile you haven't gotten to know. Don't let a few inches get the best of ya

Sometimes I get carried away and manipulate him too much. He tells me he's fine on his own but I never listen. I wash him less now and all in all we're happy.
