I find that tall males don't like tall girls. I am tall and I get overlooked by the guys taller than me. I get approached by short guys. I'm not ugly or anything, I'm in good shape so i have no clue. I do have a theory, though.

Basically, I think it's an instinctive thing that guys like short girls because taller girls especially ones who are attractive are quite intimidating. A lot of the dispositions towards you would be along the lines of "she's so good, she wouldn't even look at a guy like me". It takes a special kind of guy who's confident enough to approach a tall girl.

I'm not trying to generalize, i know it is attraction, but I'm asking so guys (and girls) let me in on why!

Actually, I thought the opposite would be case i.e the short guys would be intimidated by you? Anyhoo I like a guy to be taller than me smiley

Poster, by 'intimidating' I believe you really mean 'scary' - because most girls tall or not don't know which demeanor to use to be approachable. These girls now go about bemoaning lack of confidence in guys; how can a guy be confident when you look like you'll eat him up. Point is frankly I don't believe its your height, its your demeanor!

exacta. i dont think attraction is the problem, try to smile a bit more or something.
Re: Men Don't Like Tall Women by Raymond247(m): 6:48pm On Dec 05, 2009
The reason is because some men per say does not like to carry a women that is taller than them on the street, because people may tink she is older than him, they might as well yab him for being too small to his girl. Moreso, some beleives that when a tall man marries a tall woman also it might tell on thier offsprings.
For me i preffer a tall lady to a short one, so buddy dont get scared about ur height u only have to maintain ur shape and rhyme it with ur height. Aba u go become hot cake. At least girls wey they compete for miss world most of them dey tall. Ciao

Actally, guyz prefer an average height girl to an xtra tall girl because they don't like dia girls to be taller them or of the same height, while some tall guyz prefer an average not brief 2 a tall girl, since they're tall no need for dia girl 2 be taller than they're. Most tall girls, pretty are too proud of themselves & they don't put up xmiling face, ''ow would u xpect a guy 2 approch u wen ur face is like a rumpled tissue paper, they(girls) look @ the guyz as if  they're not interest @ all". As for me, i'm tall & i like girls wit good height, 9ice shape & charakta, & a well curved booty.

grin grin I'm 6ft tall so I understand you. Although I disagree with the "only short guys" part. I get approached mostly by tall men. It depends on each individual.
You are right about most guys being intimidated by the "very tall and attractive" type though.  Being very tall in itself is a head turner, if you come put "very attractive" on top am, that one na traffic jam now. Let me give you my theory from a "reliable source".  It takes a lot of guts for a guy (short or tall) to walk up to a very tall and attractive girl in the open, when you know that probably the whole world and it's junior brother will be looking at her direction. There's this fear of open rejection. Most girls like that get approached either in private or by chance meetings. So honey, it has absolutely nothing to do with you.

poster i dont know how to put this because am not a woman. but will say may be you have a different complex. for a tall girl to be approached mainly by men shorter than she is, is kind of unusual. naturally men feel intimidated by women taller than them. they don't find it comfortable elevating their head or eye, just to talk to their lady. if you are a girl of 6 ft, expect to be approached by men beyond that height.

my be you should make yourself more approachable, always assume a friendly disposition. dont let your height enter your head. smile and keep your face relax in a way that reflects your womanhood, believe me you would see changes.
good luck

Re: Men Don't Like Tall Women by edoyad(m): 9:28am On Dec 07, 2009
Men don't care about tall or short i think. The first thing that attracts many(not all) a man to a woman is the Ka Ching ! bosomian size grin . The next thing for a naija guy would be the backside followed by stuff like stomach size, shape of legs etc.
Short girls usually have enormous bosom and patootie sizes on them that's why they attract the most flies grin grin

I like your post on this, being attractive (with average height) or tall (with average look) inspires same reaction from guys. I think she should look beyong height and add some swagga even if your face is hideous. Guys fancy gals with style too.
Re: Men Don't Like Tall Women by afrikaam(m): 2:04pm On Dec 07, 2009
Girls above 5'11 are weirdly tall. But i perfer smaller ladies. I am actually 6'3 myself. But its not a deal breaker. Pretty with personality wins the day, everyday.

I Like them, tall, beatiful, slim and fair. It all depends on the guy really and what he wants. Height should not be a barrier if I really want the babe. Check your personal charm and how you relate with guys, there may be something putting them off.
Best of Luck.

Absolutely agree with you. LOVE dem Tall, Beautiful and Intelligent, LOVE dem!

Girls, don't you think it's time we move on from 'the guy as no confidence to approach a girl business'? The world is moving on from that, If you are a girl and you fancy a guy, APPROACH him - Simples!!
