Do you think it’s justified that a woman would dislike a man on first impression because he’s short?

It's no more is less justified than a man disliking a woman because she has an ugly face or is overweight, everyone is entitled to their physical preferences

Dislike as in not fancy? That would be justified. Dislike as in take against? That would unjustified.

I knew a short guy who was very popular with many women. He had many platonic friendships too, maybe that was key.

Justified? No. Does it happen? Yes.

My AS-like sister expected to marry a men taller than her. She had three relationships: one good (still friends today) and two bad (so glad those are past). She was frustrated she wasn't meeting the "right" person and somebody suggested she "lower her standards" --- she is happily (more than less) married today ---- to a generous, active, strong, SHORT, BALD man. (The capitalized words are those that she mentions she had to change her expectations, the first two words are my words and the third word is something I imagine was important to her.)

I did not have conscious standards like that. I dated men of all height, most races (and builds) and most socioeconomic states - but all around my age (my AS-like BFF dated much older men). I married a man of average height (I am average height).

You're not short, James. You're almost 5 foot 8. Stop thinking that you're short.

It's more like 5 foot 9. But that doesn't matter. You're in the average range.

I'm in the 5th Percentile. I'm 164 cm tall, or 5 foot 4 3/4. You're over 170 cm. You're not short. You're about the height of Tom Cruise, who is 5 foot 7 3/4.

But people THINK I'm taller because I stand up straight, and walk with purpose.

I also walk very upright. Add my slim build I guess I can look taller than I am.


I do remember though a few years back at the bar when all those women were throwing themselves at this blonde haired 6ft5 guy. Heck even my friends who were 6ft were getting ignored by the ladies that night lol.


I suppose men who are 6ft5 or 6ft6 are very attractive too females compared too guys who are 5ft8 - 6ft4. I think many women think they have hit the jackpot when they come across a 6ft5 man.

That's in a bar....I don't go by what people think in bars.

If I went by what people thought in bars, I would still be a virgin today.

If you were born when I was you’d probably still be a virgin
You were just born before society went to hell
Congratulations :cry:

What you or I think doesn’t matter all that matters is what women think and they think I’m worthless trash not worthy of they time or love. Only men with good jobs are good enough.

If my erea has 500,000 extra women maybe I’d have more luck but there’s 2,000 extra men here so women have no need to not be picky.

It is not justified to dislike someone because of height but sometimes it is natural involuntary or subconscious


Plenty men shorter than you are married

Height is just one component
