Why Do Guys Like Short Girls

Advertisements

This question has been asked so many times in so many places but the exact answer is still unknown. Guys like short girls because they find them pretty and attractive. They don’t really know the exact reason of this attraction and unlike girls; they don’t sit and think about such questions hoping to find a final answer. However, here is a list of the probable reasons that may put an end to this question altogether:

Guys feel more powerful in the relationship

Our relationship choices are largely determined by our psychological needs. When a guy towers over his girlfriend, he automatically feels more powerful in the relationship. A guy usually looks at a relationship as a combination of love and constant power struggles so his height makes him feel like a triumphant winner.

Short women look like they need protection from the world

There is something about short women that encourages everyone to protect them. Short woman look so cute and adorable all the time and a guy who’s fond of her will want to keep her safe. Even though short women can be very feisty and defensive about themselves, their height makes them look vulnerable which attracts a guy even more.

It feels nice to hug them

A lot of guys love the feeling of hugging women who aren’t very tall. I have this friend who’s dating a wonderful woman who would be called short by general standard and he can’t stop talking about how amazing he feels when he hugs her and her head stops right below his chin. And he’s not the only guy who enjoys this experience.

Guys feel inferior to tall women

Tall woman are usually very confident but their confidence often has a lot of pride and arrogance mixed in it. Since most men have a huge ego (which they can never compromise on), tall women can make them feel inferior to them in no time so short women are definitely a safer bet when it comes to protecting their ego.

They don’t know how amazing they are

Tall woman know that they have it in them and they are aware of their options. However, some short women are unaware of their beauty and charm because they have always been very preoccupied with their height. Innocence and humility can be very attractive in a woman. When someone has both these, why will anyone care about how tall they are?

Sex is more enjoyable

Some guys find sex to be a more pleasurable activity with someone who’s shorter than them by a massive degree. Since short women weight less, some men find it easier to experiment with them.

They are easier to pick and move around

A great thing about short women is that you can pick them up with ease and take them wherever you want. They are like the little dolls a guy never had but always wished that he did. Whether you talk about a ride to the bedroom or snuggling up on the couch, short women can fit themselves anywhere which actually makes them even more adorable.

Short women look more proportionate

Short women tend to look well endowed which attracts every guys attention. A tall woman with a small chest and a well endowed butt may look disproportionate but a short woman with the same vital stats will not. Since the disproportion is less obvious in short women, they are usually more favored by guys.

They feel more secure in the relationship

Being with a short woman gives more security to a man. Men in general are very insecure even though they will never accept it so being with someone who is short makes them feel dominating and the fear of losing a girl does not come into play.

They can take them around like a trophy

Short girls are petite and very cute. They are like a guy’s arm candy (of course he loves her). Being in a relationship with someone who’s attractive, adorable and completely loyal to them will helps guys to win some brownie points with their friends.

Short women are more feminine

This is actually a fact. Short women have more estrogen content in their body which makes them much more feminine than tall women who have more testosterone. I am not saying that tall women aren’t feminine but short women have a higher degree of sensitivity which really attracts men.

That’s the stereotypical norm

A very obvious reason for guys to like short women is the traditional societal norm. Most of the guys have always dated women shorter than them so the degree of the difference didn’t really matter.

As long as a guy likes a girl, their difference in height doesn’t really make that much of a difference.

  • Rose

    Height has no relationship with femininity. I know many short girls who cannot afford to wear skirts because of their hairy legs. And there are many beautiful tall women around such as beauty queens and models. By the way, if tallness is good for men but not for women, why are high heels worn by women and not by men? Besides, it is no fun to have to bend double or climb a chair to kiss your partner on your wedding day.

          Short women tend to attract the “boys” and tall women seem to attract the “men”..and what I’m saying is I’ve had guys shorter than me (I’m 5.8 1/2) be attracted to me, and not care that I was taller than them because they were comfortable with their masculinity Also, tall women have long legs…Tall women less feminine? Try telling that to the millions of men swooning over the Victoria’s Secret models.

      • Anonymous

        Yeah yeah. This article was just offensive to tall women.

    • Me

      I agree!

    • Anon.

      true about the defensiveness… But the reason girls wear high heels and guys don;t is because the media shows a bunch of 6 foot tall stick women and display them as “beautiful”. To some, that may be beauty, but to others it is not. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Yes, there have been many tall beauty queens, but that is becuase that the media does not take shorter women and display them like they do taller women. However twisted or correct the media may be, it is what it is. I, however, am short and do not think that being a stick and six feet tall is attractive to men. But then again, I am a girl so I wouldn’t know. But again, the reason tall women are more commonly “beauty queens” is because media doesn’t give short girls a chance. In the modeling world, 5’6″ is considered “petite”! Obviously, they’ve got a few things to learn about the real world, because the average height of America women is 5’4″. 5’6″ is not petite…

      • Maggz

        Agree

      • smith

        The guy I like called me petite and i’ 5’6 but i’m also skinny with a small frame. I weight around 103, sometime a little more or even less than 100 pounds. But I also feel crazy tall sometimes because so many girls are shorter than me. And to be honest I don’t really think 5’6 is that tall

        • Shortie

          Im 5’0

      • pansy

        Women wearing heels has nothing to do with height. Heels make a woman more attractive because of the way it forces them to arch their backs and shows off the shape of the legg muscles, gives this all “tight” appearance, that reminds men of how women arch their backs in the bedroom, when they’re h0rny. It’s kind of gross, when you really think about it. which is why I never wear heels.

      • lenny

        I’m 5’8″ and I love it!

      • Anonymous

        The reason why beauty queens and models are chosen tall is because tall girls look better in clothes thus model and sell the product better. It’s not because society is messed up they don’t give short girls a chance it’s because there’s no point. If I wanted to see a girl that was under 5’6″ walking a runway I would just walk down the street like you said the average American is short it’s nothing to look at. Tall girls are elegant and they carry themselves and clothes better. That’s it. After that, whether men like them more or not is up to the man that’s not something that can just be generalized.

        i think that a beauty contest should be held for all the short girls as well , they too deserve to be a beauty icon . just because of the height, i don’t think that people should stop dreaming or any criticism should be made.

    • Stanley Clark

      To answer your question about the high heels, it’s because that butt is irresistible in heels, and every guy including myself knows this. The goal for heels is the bum, not the height. Although some girls do wear them for height.

      That’s true…….i prefere tall girls to short ones. Almost the same height as me.Feminity to short girls is kind of being psychologically forced into them which makes it fake if i may say so, but real feminity is seen in tall girls as they are more natural.

Being short has some advantages but when you’re my size, all you want is a few more inches.. And shorter women are cuter but taller women are more gorgeous. Us petite girls are just little toys for men. I always want a guy that’s much taller than me though.. But I just wanna know how short is too short for guys to like a girl?

    It’s not just men that seem to want to protect me, although they definitely do act that way, it’s also women. I think some women find it cute and want to protect short people like they would a child, for men it is to do with feeling strong and masculine and dominant over the shorter person. It’s working fine for me either way ;)

    if short girls are so “feminine”, and tall girls are apparently masculine then why can’t short girls be beauty queens or models? I don’t get the part about they don’t know how amazing they are? how can you judge someone’s personality from their height. and the stuff it says is wrong with tall girls, you’re basically saying that models are masculine? I mean I’m not putting down short or tall girls at all but you’re saying short girls look better. um hello look at Katrina kaif and all those gorgeous celebrities or models. every one of them is tall. maybe lots of short girls look cute but you can look cute depending on how you dress and your face and weighT. Anyway looks are not about the girls height its about her weight and face. there is such thing as being too tall, well there is such thing as being too short. I think it’s nice if a girl is a little short (about 5’4) or if the girl is average or a little bit tall (about 5’7). but it all depends on a guys preference and the height of the guy.

    Just like most men don’t date older women, most men don’t date women whom their height is greater than their own.
    This is understandable as females in nature needs to be protected.. that also explain why most women are short (natural selection).

Third, the gal in the picture is beautiful; not only to myself as a 6’1 man, but apparently to many more men than just myself.

      • anna

        Actually, models are tall because ALL clothes hang better on them. Models are basically walking clothes hangers, and tall people are better hangers than short people. For instance – maxi skirts look terrible on short girls because it makes them look stumpy unless it’s high-waisted, but amazing on tall girls regardless of where it’s placed. It’s not to do with beauty.

      • anonymous

        The reason tall girls are used to model is because of their body frame and has nothing to do with beauty. If you’ve ever seen fashion shows, those girls are too skinny and they look tired. This is because of their weight in conjunction with their height.

        Even if you were a 6 foot woman, you wouldn’t be able to model if you weren’t stick thin. Therefore your point is irrelevant.

        Also modelling has nothing to do with beauty per say. I’ve seen some extremely ugly models and some extremely beautiful ones so your point is once again irrelevant.

        Sorry, I just had to point that out.

    I think it’s better to be tall because older people who are short struggle with their weight a lot more than taller people. When you’re tall you and you gain weight it isn’t as noticeable as when a short person does because you have so much more space for the fat to go.

If you are ugly on the inside, than prepare to be just one big ugly blob for the rest of your dying, miserable, green-eyed ridden days.

    Well i happen to think everyone is beautiful tall or short, i dont agree on tall women looking masculane, they are just as beautiful as short girls, everyone has their own preference, I dont understand why people make height so important. EVERYONE is different in their own way, how would the world be if we all looked the same, it would be dull and boring. No one is better then anybody and if u think u are then you need a reality check. I am myself 5ft tall and i have no problem being short, I happen to love my body and my small feet :) yea a lot of immature people would make fun of me because I didnt measure up to their height, But I love myself and so does my 5’10 boyfriend :)

    Being 5”3 myself I’m what society deems petite, but if some unwitting, egocentric d. bag dare hits on me because I’m o’ so ‘innocent looking’, ‘adorable’ and sickeningly ‘cutesy sweet’ [barf], I’ll give him a proverbial tongue lashing that’ll take him YEARS of psychotherapy to forget.

    I consider myself to be like the runt of the litter of a Rottweiler. ‘Looks’ non-threatening enough, until it sinks it’s teeth into your tender flesh;)

    I’m tall, 5’7 and I think relationships and preferences are about height in theory, but in actuality, once you meet someone and get to know them, their height starts to fade. A guy wont only date a girl because she’s short or tall. Same as her one only date her because shes a certain race, religion, or has a certain look. He’ll date her because he thinks she’s awesome, you know, her personality. I hate how all people are generalized to be so superficial when in actuality, its all in our minds. Nothing about a girl being a couple inches shorter or a foot shorter will make a huge difference in how “dominate” the guy is. nothing about a girl being short will make her vulnerable or want to be treated like a baby. Just like nothing about girls tall like me makes us feel like models and super confident and dominant. Everyone’s a bit insecure about their looks, so bringing so much weight to them really does nothing good for women or men.

    People need to stop bashing on the girl in the photo. She’s pretty and cute and you have no reason to hate or or think she’s a bitch. Also, Tall women shouldn’t be so defensive; everyone knows tall women can be beautiful. I’m short with a taller than average friend and I feel completely inferior to her long slender legs. No one says shorter is better or taller is better. It’s just an article about stereotypes.

    A guy should like a girl for her ability to have an independent mind. Not get attracted to the fact that she is adorable and he can protect her. A lot of girls get annoyed by this. I have a lot of short friends and relatives and they don’t like being portrayed as the damsel in distress or demure. All their boyfriends respect them, and the girl likes that.

    Being tall & female is awful! I’ve never had a boyfriend, can’t wear heels, & unless you you really succeed in modeling it’s not worth it. Short girls are vicious, just saying.. The girl in the picture does look like a spinner with down syndrome & that’s not to be mean that’s what men like I admit it short & “special” soo sexy ;/ & I’m not kidding. Peace

  • 5’3andhappy

    this is like ssuuuch a lie.. out of all the reasons you gave, maybe 3 or 4 are true, the rest could work as well for tall girls..
    What is this for? Are you trying to make short girls feel good by making tall girls feel bad?… this is absolutely ridiculous. I agree with the fact that guys like short girls, I, myself am 5’3 and I love it, but there are really beautiful tall women out there, and I don’t understand why do separate tall women from short ones. You’ve just got to accept your height and move on! And by accepting it I don’t mean making the other “team” feel miserable.( since you’re talking about them as different kind of people).

    Why do I feel this article is, instead of coming up with reason why guys like short girls (which they do, short girls are cool) they’re just dissing tall girls…

  • Kitty

    Okay. Moment of truth. This article was truly offensive. =3 *Embarrassed* I guess you would consider myself “tall” at 5’8.
    Things that were… offensive/ uncomforting?:

    1. I’m pretty sure hugging a tall girl isn’t bad. xp I dunno I’m not the guy here.

    2. That tall women have a lot of confidence! I felt that this article was implying that tall women are over confident. That is not always the case. It goes both ways – girls are either confident, cocky, or not whether they are short or tall.

    3. Short women look more proportionate? Is that implying that tall women don’t? That’s just mean. T-T I object to that statement! =p

    4. Short women are more feminine? Okay, they tried bringing science into this. Apparently we’ve got more testosterone? Lol. Let’s say we do. We’re still GIRLS come on… =S

    P.S. For one thing, I love to wear heels. Not at all for the height. I just think they’re really pretty.

    P.P.S Bottom line, it shouldn’t matter whether we’re are tall or short. Everybody just wants to be loved for who they are. Nothing more, nothing less. =)

    • Nat

      Kitty I agree with you. This article was a totally offensive, but a boost for short girls. Short girls may not be confident…that is a false statement. There are millions of people in USA, did you took the time to make a poll or find evidence that short girls are feel a certain way. I have friends who are short but more confident than any tall woman I know. I am done with these comments about how short girls are the best choice for men’s and their ego.

    • WOo

      Short women are usually not “proportionate”
      Stumpy legs and small breast buds don’t translate into pretty. Cute and unintimidating though? Probably.

    • TINY

      don’t listen to this article AND rude people. Tall women look as pretty as short girls, if they learn how to look pretty and learn to be confident and feel sexy.

  • Kim

    I’m short,sweet and petite.I agree.Men feel more comfortable and in controll with a petite girl,unlike a tall towering one. OH,and whoever said it doesn’t matter is most likely tall like a giraffe and can’t catch men.So whose too short now?

    • Anon

      That’s mean :(. I’m a tall girl and your comment insulted me. Height doesn’t matter, love is love.

    • anony

      You’re disgusting. Your argument is pretty dumb. Fist of all, If you were SO confident and sure about your point.. How did you end up on this website? And there’s no need for you to say “a tall towering one” or ” tall like a giraffe and can’t catch men” WHY WOULD YOU? i bet there’s girls tall like a giraffe out there that get way more men than you do. Why? Because of their PERSONALITY. If insulting people makes you feel good about yourself, there’s something wrong about you girl. Besides, “short” and “petite” are synonyms. It’s like saying “I’m sleeping and Asleep” You sound pretty.. dumb? I am tall (5’8″), and damn how happy I am! I’ve had 4 boyfriends and I get the guys I like. People say I’m too tall but although my height is not convenable, they still love me because I have an amazing personality… And the end of the day a pretty face gets old, but a good personality never does. So who’s (not whose) the one that said it was the only thing that matters?

    • Cairro

      You should respect someone’s honest opinions. She wasn’t insulting short girls, so I don’t understand why you felt the need to call her a giraffe and say that she is unable to find a guy.

      Plus, by the way you treated her, it seems that “short, sweet, and petite” really means childish, rude, and judgmental.

    • Anonymous

      I rather be a giraffe, than a midget, and btw the only reason why some guys go for short girls, is with a tall girl, they’re uncomfortable with their masculinity.

    • TINY

      seriously that’s so mean. I’ 5ft3 so not a giraffe, but why women always nee to diss each other?
      I love being short too and I always knew guys prefer short women (well depends, i feel like rich men like businnes men, actors etc prefer tall women)
      but why the need to put down tall women. So imagine you were tall? you wouldn’t like to be called a giraffe)
      I think tall women must know how to make their body/looks look good.
      It’s the same with body types: pears have flat stomach and nice wide hips so they can wear clothes that will make their body loo, good, with jeans, short tops etc. But when it comes to wearing skirts/shorts, it’s a disaster
      Now women who have apple body times, have big upper part of the body wich isn’t as feminine as pear shapes, BUT they can wear nice skirts./shirts and heels and cover their bellies/big chest/shoulders with looser tops/shirts

      People should learn to accept their looks: that’s the key to beauty. Learn what fits your more, what make you look your best according to YOUR body/height

      I’m a short pear shaped women (actully my legs are quite skinny, but i got wide pretyy hips and big buttom and tiny breasts, but learning to love myself entirely just makes me 100% confident in the way i Look. I used to hate my small breasts, now i love em 100% and wouldn’t want them bigger AT ALL)

      anyway typed too much (ps sorry english ain’t my mother tongue)

    I’m actually 4’10, and a lot of my relationships broke because of that… My currently partner is 5’3 and I think this makes the relationship evenly spread… A lot of you girls are fighting about how short girls are UGLY and this and that, well in my life of 32 years I don’t think any of my exes thought I was ugly :/ I mean girls call me old fashioned or whatever but don’t guys like it when they have superiority over their partner? Hmm… (Btw there is no harm in you people dating someone shorter :P may be your kids will have non envious life that way hehe)

  • Nobody

    Wow that was extremely offensive to tall women. The one about tall woman being arrogant and full of themselves doesn’t make sense at all. As a tall girl myself I am very insecure and don’t feel confident even when people tell me I am beautiful. I also know a lot of tall girls that feel the same. In fact I’ve never met any tall girl that thought she was “the best of the best” just because she was tall. In fact any girl I have ever met that was arrogant and full of herself was SHORT (not trying to offend anyone or put a stereotype on a huge group of people by a their appearance like the writers of this obviously are.) I get how reading this probably makes A LOT of short girls feel very good about themselves and I commend the writers for that, except it stated that “tall girls usually have a big ego” and such. Most tall girls feel very insecure about their height so the irony that I can literally feel while reading this is taller girls will feel even more bad about themselves and think no guy will ever love them and short girls might get the big ego. Hmm… Tall girls aren’t feminine? Jennifer Lawrence= 5’9 Katy Perry = 5’8.Taylor Swift= 5’11 Yeah- Guys like tall girls too because I think we all no how many boyfriends Taylor has had. The writers off this have gotten it wrong. GUYS LIKE ALL TYPES OF GIRLS UNLESS THE LIKE OTHER GUYS. Some guys like tall girls and some guys like short girls. If guys didn’t like tall girls I wouldn’t be here today because my grandmother was very tall (5’11) and beautiful. Her whole life she always felt like a freak even though guys loved her! She was also a model.

  • anonymous

    why are there taller people commenting/ complaining? not trying to be rude, but this was supposed to help boost the esteem of the people who are insecure about their small size… not offend you if you’re on the taller size. everyone’s beautiful. there is no such thing as ugly so please don’t be offended or thing of yourself as undesirable. :)

  • emmss

    This is ridiculous. It’s offensive on so many levels. Tall girls have the same problem short girls do. We’re all self conscious about our height. I’m 6’0 tall, stick thin and according to this article I’m disproportionate and will never have a boyfriend because I’m too masculine? I’m as girly as they come people. Kudos for making all the short people feel better but don’t tear the tall ones down in the process. Everyone is born the way they are. You can’t change your height.

  • http://twitter.com Ben

    I’ve observed that most commonly rich men seem more attracted to tall slender and athletic women. Middle class and poor men appear to choose shorter heavier women. In part it leads me to believe that economic status has something to do with height preference. An average Western man is not a wealthy one. The funny part is that I am middle class and prefer an average height woman. We could be onto something Julia!

    Also, the men I have dated have all preferred taller women. My current boyfriend is 6’0 tall and he likes my height. He finds short girls annoying, and plus he can be rough with me and I won’t complain.

  • beanstock

    I’ve always felt too tall, this article confirms that men prefer shorter women which makes me feel manly especially because I’m with a shorter man and he’s always preferred petite girls. I guess I’m kinda jealous so I over compensate by acting extra girly wearing dresses and always keeping my hair long and wearing makeup and doing my nails. I hate being taller than most because everybody makes me feel like I’m some kind of giant beast. I do stand out and it’s uncomfortable to be out of place among a group of people. I’m 5’9″ & 130 lbs but as far as my facial features, curvy booty, p3rky bre@sts, and small waist I feel attractive even beautiful but it’s things like this that make women who have been teased their whole life to feel insecure. I’m blessed and lucky for the way I am but everyone has something about themselves that bothers them. It’s how life evens itself out…short women are cute, no doubt, they tend to look younger for longer and are feminine but tall women can be cute too especially with the right face and if they have a youthful, fun personality. Tall women are just as easy to lift or carry especially if they’re small framed (eg. narrow shoulder width) and maintain their height to weight ratio. It’s wrong to think of shorter women as more feminine because it’s not always true in every circumstance. I have a lot of short friends who act much more aggressive, tom-boyish, and have a larger frame than I do. So for all the short women on here, you all should understand that the jealous sounding remarks coming from the tall women are out of hurt for such an offensive article to state that height matters in femininity. Just as men are very conscious of their masculinity, a women’s ego can be hurt by someone making them feel less feminine. How would you like to be called a giraffe or a giant all your life (not that giraffes are bad, they’re actually cute). Think of how it feels when someone calls you an umpaloompa or a gnome, doesn’t it kinda sting? Instead of judging others remind yourself to consider their struggle and the stereotypes they’ve dealt with. Not all tall people are good at basketball or have an interest in modeling so our stature can be a limitation to us just as much if not more so than a short stature can be a limitation. No, our lives are not all runways and glamour; pants flood on us more, we bump our heads on low hanging lights, we can’t fit into cramped spaces as easily, we look lanky, we don’t get pampered as much since everyone thinks we can defend ourselves better than short women, we have to be tougher since we look it, we have a hard time finding someone to dance with that won’t make us look like giants, we can’t fit snuggly under our man’s arm as we walk down the street, we were never the “adorable one” just the “big one”. That’s another thing I hate about how other people refer to us tall women as “big”, we’re not “big” because we’re not all heavy or fat, some of us our light and have smaller narrower bones. We can be extremely flexible in bed as well, and our v@g1nas are just as tight so don’t let stereotypes fool you.

      My question is: The person…Julia…who wrote the blog…or article, what age is she? How old is she? And what and why are her impressions about her opinions in her article based on all the statements that she made? That is, how did she come to the conclusions for her comments that she came to? What have been HER experiences in her life that would make her make those statements? I would think that she must be pretty young and inexperienced in life for her to make such statements in the first place.

    as 6’3 (193cm) guy It would be very nice if I could find a girl to date that I did not need to bend down to hug or she hugs me she does not even clear my shoulder

    • Juke Box

      Don’t complain. There are plenty of tall girls around you, you just choose not to date them.

  • Cairro

    I’m 5″1 but I think this article is extremely offensive and bias. I understand you want to make short girls feel better, but that doesn’t make it right for you to demean tall girls. Girls are girls, and they are all loved by different kinds of people, so it isn’t really accurate to say that one height is more popular.

    2). In my experiences, I’ve met petite girls who look like they would rather shoot themselves than accept any kind of ‘protection’ from men, and trust me, the guys don’t offer any.

    3). Because I’m short, I’ve run across several awkward hugs with guys, where my head will be practically on their stomach. And it’s awkward for them because they end up putting their hands around my neck instead of my back. Plus, there are some hella tall guys out there, who would probably appreciate hugging a girl who was at least close to their height, so as to keep it from being uncomfortable.

    4). “Tall woman are usually very confident but their confidence often has a lot of pride and arrogance mixed in it” Says who? Since when is your height directly related to your personality traits? You can’t be confident without being prideful and arrogant? We should all just be short and self-conscience? “[...] short women are definitely a safer bet when it comes to protecting their ego.” It sounds like that’s the guy’s problem, not the girl’s. It isn’t her fault that he has a sensitive (and inflated) ego, so that really says nothing about how short girls are better, since that is dependent on the guy’s personal issues.

    5). “Tall woman know that they have it in them and they are aware of their options. However, some short women are unaware of their beauty and charm because they have always been very preoccupied with their height. Innocence and humility can be very attractive in a woman. When someone has both these, why will anyone care about how tall they are?” Mm, this whole paragraph is just…okay, since when does height=confidence? Never. Just because you had a growth spurt doesn’t mean that you have never dealt with self-conscience issues (and I’m sure a lot of tall girls that read this are now having worse issues learning to love their height, so that’s just great). When I was younger, I was taller than everyone else, because I grew fast and then stopped growing. And I’ll tell you, those tall years were just as awkward as my short years (aka now). On the flip-side, I know plenty of confident, self-sufficient short girls. And I’m sorry, but is being humiliated with yourself attractive these days? Cause I always thought that people (girls or guys) who were confident in themselves and who had fully accepted and learned to love themselves were the most attractive people. But, I’m going to humor you and pretend that humility and innocence are both redeeming qualities in a girl. What if a tall girl is both of those? You said then that it shouldn’t matter. So really, you have no relevant reasons why a short girl is better than a taller one because you just said that it depends all on their personality, thereby contradicting the fact that you previously stated that short girls are better simply because of their height. So what is it that really matters- physical appearance or personality?

    7). What are we, furniture?

    8). I have really short legs and a long torso, and yes, I look disproportionate but I’m short. Also, I know that there are a lot of guys who like long legs, and that is sometimes impossible for short girls and sometimes is something only tall girls can accomplish.

    9). A guy in a relationship shouldn’t feel confident that a girl won’t leave him simply because he knows he can dominate her. This typically leads to domestic violence because the man gets over confident and tries to force a submissive girl into doing something.

    10). If a man truly loved a girl, he wouldn’t need ‘brownie points’ from his friends. Furthermore, his friends shouldn’t care what his girlfriend looks like, as long as: a). They are genuinely good friends and b). They knew how much the girl and guy were in love. Also, I’ve read on several websites, heard in multiple videos, and talked with many girls about the fact that they actually hate being treated like they are nothing more than a trophy by their boyfriends/fiancees/husbands and would actually like to be treated like a human being instead of an object with which to impress the guy’s friends.

    11). Femininity and masculinity are nothing more than states of mind, meaning you can choose to be as feminine or as masculine as you desire- it has little to nothing to do with estrogen or testosterone ratios. Femininity and masculinity have to do with personality, environment, upbringing, and personal decisions of one’s image more so than chemicals found within the body.

    12). First off, it may be common that tall guys like short girls, but I wouldn’t go as far as to say that it is a social norm, because there are varied people in this world with many different tastes, and it just isn’t realistic (or provable) that one height is favored more than the other. Also, since when does something being a social norm make it justifiable to criticize the “social abnormality”? Just because something is a social normality doesn’t make it right and fair.

    “As long as a guy likes a girl, their difference in height doesn’t really make that much of a difference.”
    So you pretty much insulted every slightly tall girl in the world throughout every other paragraph, only to go back on your previous statements and say that it doesn’t really matter all that much, because in the end, it’s all about which guy it is.

    And all you guys who felt good about yourselves after reading this article, think about all the tall people who are self-doubting their worth right about now. God forbid you already were uncomfortable with being tall before you read this article or now it will probably take a while for you to truly accept yourself in your own skin after being mercilessly criticized by this misinformed bully of a blogger.

Here it go I was told ” Small women have deep waters and big have shallow ones”. This was said after I was curious as to why men seem more attracted to smaller women. What do you say about that?

      • phil

        dude, height has nothing to do with tightness, been with a shortie that’s loose as hell.

  • Chris

    Wow. This article was obviously written by a young woman who is envious of tall women. Your defensiveness of being “petite”, and your obvious jabs at tall women just scream “I’M INSECURE”!!!!

    For the record, as a man I dont feel that short women are any more cute or feminine as tall women. Its all about the individual. You cant just lump people together.

    And just so you know, most men do not like short womens legs. They are stubby, especially when the calf muscle is really short. Short women also tend to have t-rex arms and disproporianately large heads.

    • Elona Alley

      Woah there Chris, Calm Down. I just want you to know that 7 months later, even if what you say is true, you made a complete ass of yourself.

    • Littleone

      Oh wow just because you don’t agree doesn’t mean you need to insult and crush small girl’s/women’s self-esteem. This article was supposed to make us feel better about being small and you achieved to ruin it with your comment, thank you very much. It’s nice to know that you think that our body looks disproportional and ridiculious. You obviously hate people and have some serious issues but don’t drag other people into your misery!

      Well, I was in agreement with you until I read your last paragraph. Whew! You should have stopped while you were ahead.

    • Juke Box

      I wouldn’t be surprised if you were a short guy that couldn’t find any women to want you. Another bitter short guy angry at short girls.

  • Alina

    I’m 20 years old and I’m 4’11 I get called cute, adorable, and squishable by my taller BF (I think he is 5’11”) at first it REALLY bugged me but I’ve grown to accept my size and I secretly love being called that by him. I am very feisty about it with other people still lol

  • Silvia

    Cant believe the comments of women being so critical of one another tall/short.
    I’m more disgusted by the language of this article; things like pick and move around. Trophy. Makes it seem like women are objects. Also while this article seems to praise the short woman, it also kinda implies that short women are vulnerable, have no confidence, blah blah. That’s not even true of short women in general. Or women in general. This is just another one of those articles to make women feel insecure about themselves.

  • WOo

    Wow, thanks for being honest.

    I’m a gorgeous tall woman who encounters this repulsion to tall men quite frequently – the fragile ego and insecure thing comes shining through.

    It is actually shorter males who are drawn to me, because they don’t have the strange issues of taller males. For shorter males, they want the most beautiful and confident woman they can win over.

  • Panida

    God I seriously hate being short.I’m 5’0 ft and I have a friend who is 4’11.personally I don’t think it’s cute.You just look like a midget and I just honestly can’t believe people like its cute sometimes.

    • Sofia Alejandro

      I know the feeling.

      I see some people pulling it off, but I personally can’t. I would do anything to be three or two inches taller. Alot of my (tall) guy friends are like “AWH you’re so adorable”. “.-.” I’ve heard some of these things that the blog states from guys, but not every guy is the same.

  • Me

    Yes I am tall and I agree with many things the blog states, it is obviously coming from a male perspective. However I think that any man can date a short girl. But if a man “dares” to date a tall girl, that means he is beyond those manly, protective insecurity issues, and he may be a keeper or at least worth considering. And its not just the height, because if the girl was 5 inches and 150 kg or a had frumpy, bitter face, she would not be as dated as a 6 inch girl with some curves and a nice smile. I also have a cute short friend who all the guys go for, but as soon as she opens her mouth they go flying in the other direction. So again, height is not all.

  • http://youtube.com bibi

    Wow stop being so cruel to tall girls, guys. I’m a girl, 5’2, which means I’m not tall at all. Girls, tall or short, you’re all beautiful. And to the short girls who call tall girls giraffes, SHAME ON YOU, you might be short and ‘cute’ but you’re mean-spirited if you feel the need to put the taller girls down, you’re also probably just jealous, otherwise why would you say such condescending things? SHORT MEAN GIRLS, GROW UP!!!

  • Rebellka

    Jesus girls calm the duck down. You realize that this article is about STEREOTYPES? So stop bitching about it being offensive. Also most of it is true. Yes. Tall women often have smaller boobs BECAUSE their body is bigger! Jeeze… and being tall = more testosterone = less feminine. DEAL. WITH. IT. and yes short girls are often less confident BECAUSE they’re being looked down at most of the time. Models. are. not. beautiful. Anorexia is not beautiful… oh and one more thing.. for those who dont know it yet. Hells are worn by girls because their legs look better in them (and they’re pretty :3 ).
    *sigh*
    It’s all about what the guy prefers… Even if being short means being more attractive to men doesn’t mean that the “right guy” will arrive faster..
    (I’m 4’9” and 18 and I’m still still a kissless virgin :) even if my friend is 5’10” and she’s dating awesome guy )

  • Melissa

    After reading this I’m not worried about my height anymore (5″3)! I can’t wait to go hug a guy right now XD

  • Patrice

    In this day and age short women actually already have enough confidence they’re the one I see all over the internet wearing stylish clothes, stylish hair, cleaveges, hot boyfriends or boy friends, daring pictures basically they just scream confidence some of these are also the same with short girls I see in real life, and tall girls.

    I am not tall myself (about 5’4 and actually tallest in my female friends) but I really feel bad about the tall girls reading this. They can be just as adorable, cute, and sweet but they can also be fiesty. In fact a lot of tall girls have little confidence now because being short is the norm today.

    And to the tall ones who felt uneasy, don’t worry, these are just the voices of the men who needs a short girl to make him feel manly.

    And to the short ones (like myself, although I don’t feel short as I am the tallest in my friends, probably why I’m defending them and why I felt uneasy) I am really happy that you can finally be confident.

    I’m short this is cool finally something good about being short I was always picked on for my height

    Seriously? This is just so stupid. The person who wrote this is so stupid.

    • Bella

      Ikr. I’m 5″9 1/2, and I hate my height. The boys is just looking a me and saying: “wow, stop growing”, and I’m like: “I’m sorry that I have the genes, I have”.
      Anyway, I would do anything to be small, cute and adorable, and have a boyfriend, I could look up to, but you can’t do anything about it.
      Also, I think, that if you really are in love, height doesn’t matter. My mum is taller than my dad, and they still love each other.

  • Anonymous

    a person’s height is determined by genetics and nutrition. The reason women are on average shorted than guys is because they hit puberty sooner. and many factors determine the age of puberty, genetics again being one of them.
    A person’s feminine and masculine personality on the other hand is determined by the level of testosterone a fetus is exposed to in the womb. so a lady can be short but masculine and be attracted to shorter less masculine men since they don’t want to feel inferior in a relationship.

  • Dirk

    I heart spinners!!

  • Clara

    Okay it’s obvious that you’re extremely insecure and wrote this article just to try and bring down tall girls in order to make yourself feel better.

    Tell me, if short women were so incredibly feminine and proportionate, how come they aren’t the ones strutting on the runways? Following your logic, wouldn’t clothes look better on them, since you said tall women are dispropotionate? Just saying, I’m 5’9 and much more proportionate than most of my short friends.

    Also height doesn not equal confidence, it took me a lot of time and work to gain self-esteem and reading this offensive article just made me want to punch horrible people like you who enjoy bullying others for a confidence boost.

    All in all, it takes many and different things to make a person attractive, and being short (or tall) does not automatically mean someone is desirable. Yes, short girls are petite and some guys like that, but tall girls can look extremely elegant and glamorous, so get off your high horse. Tastes vary, and if you can’t accept that then I’m sorry for you.

  • meens

    i am 5 feet.. at times people says i am very beautiful but short…they wish i was tall and could look like a model…but i don’t prefer that…i am happy the way i am.. i am happy and thankful to the lord that i am poor, i am not hungry,i have shelter, i have very good parents, i am educated and i have my love. never under estimate whether you are tall or short…. thank god you are not handicapped.
    if we can walk, write, if we can talk, hear,smell,sense and see…. then you are perfect.

  • meens

    if you have one strong reason to be happy then why should we worry about something that disappoints you. think positive and be confident.
    though you are short you are short your confidence helps you to achieve the heights of your life.
    life is not all about dating men and being attractive…. its all about being HUMAN.

    What makes a girl adorable is what is inside not what is outside.People tend to decide by looks everything without thinking deeply.I am 6’1 and I always hated being tall bcoz it was just hiding what I really am inside.I am very innocent,naive,childish,sensitive women who needs protection but bcoz I am tall people cannot know how I really am bcoz everyone think same short = adorable .I am adorable too,I am a women.I never tought about my future boyfriend that must be taller than me otherwise I cannot feel protected or good.All womens wants to be protected and all womens are adorable and cute even tall.Why discriminate tall girls…boys should be proud in having a tall cool girl next to them and also adorable and cute . 2 in 1.

  • None of your business

    This article is, and this is saying it nicely, the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read. I think I lost brain cells from reading its content because of the stupidity within it. I’m sorry, but ‘Julia’, I would think if you were secure and confident you wouldn’t post things that bring another woman down. And while some men may actually prefer shorter women, I think you completely forgot the whole idea of personal preference. Your article, so called ‘research’, and opinion are garbage. Grow up little girl, no pun intended. ;)

  • anon.

    this is stupid and dumb.

  • https://www.facebook.com/BlaiseGaubaSculptor/photos_stream Blaise Gauba

    Wow…this article IS quite wrong…unless I am just a guy who thinks differently. I’m average height for a man believe it or not for general international standards (5′-7″ or 170 cm) and my wife, who, before I met her, said that she had never considered dating a guy who was under 6′-0″ or 183 cm…before she met me. She is 5′-1″ or 155 cm. She said that it wasn’t that she refused to date shorter guys, but that it just hadn’t entered her mind…and initially, she also said that she had just never met a shorter guy that she was actually attracted to…hee, hee…until ME!

    My wife told me that she loved the fact that she didn’t have to crane her neck any more just to kiss or have a conversation with her man. The funny thing is, I have always been attracted to all sorts of women…even tall ladies…who CARES about height? What I was always attracted to has been (looks of course) but beauty IS in the eye of the beholder…so what I consider to be beautiful may be thoroughly unattractive to someone else…but what really attracts me to the opposite sex is PERSONALITY.

    My wife and I met on an online dating service of all places. We met in 2000 and have been inseparable ever since. We just celebrated our eight wedding anniversary and we still laugh everyday and hug everyday and KISS everyday. We can sit deep into the night and just talk about everything and absolutely nothing. We laugh at the same things, and we cry about the same things. She truly is my soul mate…and my best friend (sorry Nick).

    This article mesmerizes me…dumbfounds me, and makes me thank my lucky stars that I am not so shallow after all…because certainly I can be shallow…but lots of people can drift from the path every now and again. Isn’t that what the word “sin” actually means anyway? To drift from the path, to miss the target? Well, we all do that on occasion.

    Once, when I was single, I dated a young woman who was only about five years younger than me. She was a fashion model, she was absolutely beautiful. And no, she wasn’t grotesquely skinny either. I really liked her…but the only problem that I had with her which wasn’t just me thinking that SHE had a problem, but the fact was, it was ME who had the problem…and that was that she was five years younger and just that little age difference between us was enough for me to walk away because just that five years between us included a difference in our personalities she being younger, behaved quite a bit more immaturely just enough to turn me off.

    I have also always been attracted to women who are mature and/or even just slightly older than me. My wife is now 54 and I am 51. My wife and I are like a couple of pieces of Leggos…we snap together perfectly. I wouldn’t change a thing. We can kiss almost face to face. Personally, I love that about us. And yet, I also dated a beautiful Black lady once who was about five inches taller than me! And SHE approached ME first. And no, I wasn’t intimidated at all. I liked the fact that anyone could be attracted to me for who I am and not necessarily what I look like or how tall or short I am. And that is how I have always looked at the women I have been attracted to. Because ALL women have something that makes them a goddess. And that goes for men too. There are always redeeming things in all human beings.

    We don’t have to make excuses necessarily for why one sex is attracted to another sex. I would think that perhaps those tall men or men who are attracted to much shorter women, might have a form of pedophilia hidden deep inside them. But I might be wrong about that…I’m just wondering.

    what the fuck PLEASE COREBLOGGERS.COM BE MORE SELECTIVE OF ARTICLES YOU CHOOSE TO POST so you don’t end up publishing offensive trash like this

  • Smr

    This is stupid Lol short women do not have higher estrogen and it has nothing to do with their height.

  • Smr

    And having higher testosterone does not make you taller.

    Quoting from the comments: “And just so you know, most men do not like short womens legs. They are stubby, especially when the calf muscle is really short. Short women also tend to have t-rex arms and disproportionately large heads.”

    Woah, thank you very much for pointing that out. Yes, i have short legs but it is evident why guys don’t like you; omg keep your defensiveness in check. It’s never about the height, lady. I don’t agree to most points in the article but I like how it builds the self esteem of short girls. Disgusted by some painful comments, be more gracious with your words. Its not a representation of all short girls’ view. so take a chill pill. This article at least forms a positive reinforcement to girls who are short, but the comments i have been scrolling through are hurtful to read. Its not as though it said tall girls are bad in anything. So, let short girls feel beautiful about themselves. You too, can come out with an article about “why guys like tall girls” instead of being so nasty.

  • Shorty

    Well, I believe this theory is entirely depends on what country.

    I guess the term short is entirely different depending on culture and country, I am 170cm and I prefer 155-165cm girls, are those consider short?
    (I am Asian Chinese so 170cm is common, I am not short…)

    I looovveeee tall girls! All my girlfriends have been taller than me. I don’t quite agree with this article simply because it just sides with guys who have inferiority complex. Women are amazing and hot no matter their height. To write such things just demeans women as a whole. Can’t wait to read an article about why some women prefer shorter men or older men. That should put into perspective why more and more women go for the type. Hopefully you’ll realize how demeaning articles such as this is! :P

  • Anon

    I’m 5’6. That’s average. I’ve seen the ugliest short girls imaginable and unless you provide the mathematical and scientific proof that tall women have more testosterone (which they don’t!), I won’t believe you. This article is fake and offensive.

  • Rich Kretzschmar

    OK I see your point and it makes sense, however this doesn’t mean a passionate relationship can not happen with what some term an “Amazon Queen” or a gal of similar heights. Really it’s all going to relate back to the chemistry and personality in addition to the physical attraction.

  • Brittany

    This is completely offensive and untrue. Im 5 foot 9 and Ive dated guys who have been 6 foot 5 to 5 foot 7. This whole article is favored toward towards short women.
    **Sounds like a man wrote this article and isn’t man enough to handle a tall women. This man should show some respect because I bet he is a short tiny man who couldn’t get a woman anyway

  • p2pguy

    Height is just a matter of perspective, after reading many comments i noticed my height of 6ft 9in makes you all short in my eyes.(even the tall ones)
