What are the pros and cons of being short/tall?
Are you happy with your height or do you wish you could change it?

No. 81514

imo, both have their pros and cons, but specifically short girls with long torsos/generally stumpy builds may as well fit in the same ballpark as being average to start. when they've got the length and thickness of an average girl without having the petiteness their height should bely, it's just incredibly unfortunate. lots of cows like that, i've observed, and they always sell themselves as smol beans… the bulkier the bitches are the more they want to be small. tragic

tall girls, though? elegant as fuck when they have the confidence to style themselves appropriately. elven, almost. and petite short girls are for sure seen as adorable- although they do get targeted for a lot of fucking about based on their size if they're (naturally) of the under-100 lb size class, particularly the closer they get to 80, so it's a bit of a tradeoff of whether one wants to be admired and respected or endearing and precious

I’m 5’7-8, not sure which. Before I moved to a larger city I used to think I was too tall and insecure about my height. I now see women taller than me all the time. I still feel insecure about it every now and then, but that’s mainly because due to my height my shoulders are kind of big and my boyfriend is 5’11 so sometimes I wish we had a bigger height gap. Besides that I’m starting to really love my height. I can fluctuate 10 pounds and it’s hardly noticeable, I can wear practically whatever I want, and I’ve got legs for days. I can look stylish with minimal effort just cause of my shape, and I can easily command attention. I do, however, think there’s something undeniably attractive about petite, feminine women. I used to be disgustingly jealous until I started gaining confidence.

No. 81533

I'm 5'2", not really happy about it. If I were taller I could become underweight and model, but as it is I'm underweight now and just sort of look like a little kid with a huge head that's as big as my waist.

It pisses me off so much to see tall fat girls. What a waste.

Tall "fat" girl here, I'm 1.78m/5'10

Cons:
>being scolded for "not behaving my age", thinking I'm a lot older than I actually was, while giving my same-aged friends a pass
>getting asked if I'm a nurse at 8
>being mistaken for a teacher in elementary school
>being mistaken for being my Dad's wife at 10
>old men making creepy comments thinking I'm 16-18
>teacher telling my mother I'll never get a man when I was just a 5th grader
>teacher thinking I repeated class, since I have to be older
>unrealistically high expectations in sports
>started developing an ED at 13 to feel smaller
>not participating in prom dance since too tall for any boy
In conclusion: many of my childhood memories revolve around negative experiences because of my height.
Dating is a problem, since even though I'm living in a rather tall country I'm still a bit taller than the average guy, meaning my dating pool is small. And just because somebody happens to be my height or taller doesn't mean he also wants a tall gf. Short guys have often treated me like shit, e.g. "Why are you so tall?!" instead of "Hi, my name's…"

Pros:
Since a year ago or so I started liking my height. Like I mentioned before I suffered of an ED and have a generally low self esteem. Sometimes I feel so anxious and self conscious that I'm drenched in sweat while walking through the streets and in situations like that it helps me to tell myself that I'm at least physically "superior", that nobody of these short people could even hurt me, blah blah. Also, looking around and seeing tons of short girls makes me think that actually I wouldn't want to to look like that.
Same when I walk around alone at night, I never need to fear somebody just grabbing me.
After starving myself i gained a lot of weight back, but i guess my tall height helps me to not look completely out of shape.

Anyways, loosing weight is definitely one of my main goals (also because I always dreamed of being a model…)
Unforunatly i don't have gazelle legs like many other tall girls, mine aren't overly long and my calves are strangely bulky. Becaue of that getting long enough pants isn't that difficult, but shirts, dresses, jackets…

No. 81538

5'5" here, which I think is a good middle ground height for women in most places, however I recently moved to UK for uni and it's like I'm a giantess here, even good half of men are shorter than me. It would be fine if I had normal self esteem I guess but I don't.
It reminds me of elementary school when I was the first of my class to start developing and essentially looked the same as I do now from ages 9 onward while the rest of my classmates were puny prepubescent twigs for another 5-6 years. Which came with most of the cons >>81537 listed.
That being said, I wouldn't like to be any shorter as short girls tend to have worse proportions and I am quite happy with mine.

No. 81541

idk why tall women seem to think short girls aren't sexualized as kids??? All women are sexualized as children, and short women are also infantilized for their entire adult life. Men don't consider tall women "unfuckable", they consider short women to be "fuckable" and nothing more. Tall women have the option of being treated like real people. Who the fuck wants to be "cute" or "adorable" as an adult?

No. 81543

>>81541
Yes, because having the first comment out of someone's mouth be about your abnormal height is "treating us like people". Tall women get compared to giants/monsters/men/basketball players/amazons. Because being held to a much higher standard than kids your age or EVEN KIDS WHO ARE OLDER THAN YOU simply for being tall is so much better than being called "cute",right?

I'm sorry but I'd rather be referred to as "cute" or "adorable",at least those have positive connotations.

Men regard tall women as ONS material,
they regard short women as marriage material.

No. 81544

Wtf are you saying tall women AND short women are regarded as marriage material by men, if they only take you as a FWB / ONS the problem is you, not your height. I can't with the paranoid self hating on this site.

No. 81545

I'm 5'11" and I really like it.
Pros:
>feeling physically powerful, especially if i'm working out and can be strong+tall
>looks good in clothes
>can coast on skinnyfat for a looong time before looking overweight
>direct eye contact height or taller than most guys around me kek. it's petty but it pleases my inner amazon
>can protect/pick up/shield short girl friends if they're into that
>coworkers don't always have to ask men to reach high up things and similar tasks. they can just ask me
>dating pool is usually open minded because guys who have the personality to not like tall girls because we're too manly or some shit automatically weed themselves out

Cons
>tall since early childhood and i think people treated me as older and tougher than i was because of it. i think people didn't realize what a sensitive kid i was and expected me to just handle things maturely.
> i always thought feeling dainty,feminine,and protected just wasn't my thing but no one has ever treated me that way until my bf so maybe I just missed out.

The paper you linked are arguing that women are 3.9% more likely to report being happier if they're with a taller man or a man who make a lot more money than them, not that men don't view tall women as marriage material. Plus the data were collected in Indonesia, a rather misogynistic country.

Because one experience outweighs the study of 22,000 people?

Anyways, short women like >>81541 >>81533 need to accept that tall women's lives tend suck just as much.

your study is shite anyway and doesn't support what you're saying.

Height obviously is relative. There's almost a foot between me and my boyfriend. The outliers are usually those at the extreme ends of the scale, like someone 5'1 dating someone 6'6. Scale to height anon. Are tall girls really upset a small bloke might not potentially want to marry them? Go after one of the tall hotties.

>5'5, UK, giantess
Huh? You're only 1 inch taller than the average height in the UK (which is also the same in my country), so I'm sorry to say this, but I highly doubt you were treated the same as I was…

>>81541
>idk why tall women seem to think short girls aren't sexualized as kids???
I assume your anger was directed at my comment
>old men making creepy comments thinking I'm 16-18
Obviously I agree that kids of all height sadly do happen to be sexualized, but if it happens to a short or normal looking kid this person is a pedo. What I meant was that men thought I'm so much older that it's okay to hit on me:
>Anon, you're cute, do you have a bf?
>No, I'm too young for that…
>Huh, why? How old are you?
>I'm 10.
>Oh shit, I'm so sorry, i really thought you're over 18!

> i always thought feeling dainty,feminine,and protected just wasn't my thing but no one has ever treated me that way until my bf so maybe I just missed out.
I can relate to that, I always tried to act tougher than I actually was simply because I feel like this is what people expect me to be. I never really had any feminine hobbies, don't allow myself to act "weak" or find things cute, because i guess it would look really awkward if a girl as tall as me would e.g. act all scared while watching a horror movie or if there's a spider, etc.

No. 81558

Being average height is nice, ~165cm, because I can find clothes my size and thankfully I look good in almost everything (due to good proportions). The only downside is that it can be a bit boring. Tall girls look confident and striking, whereas short girls look dainty and adorable.

>Tall women have the option of being treated like real people. Who the fuck wants to be "cute" or "adorable" as an adult?
Maybe you'd be taken more seriously if you actually acted like an adult? Hysterial screeching usually doesn't exactly say "Hey, I'm a mature adult, respect me"…

5'5" anon here, sorry I didn't mean to infringe on your experiences! just most of the things you listed were relevant to my childhood because I looked like a "fully developed adult" early on. I agree I was only ever "tall" in relation to my classmates, it was mostly 2ndary sexual characteristics and my face that made me look older but height did contribute to it as well. Just tried to give some bg for why feeling tall elicits such bad feelings despite being average height for an adult, I know it doesn't make much sense

I'm 5'10 and never dated despite already being 22.
I once spent an evening with a guy am he also wanted to continue meeting me, but he was shorter than me and walking arm in arm with him made me feel like shit… I somehow only get hit on by shorter (and usually older guys) and i know that some people would tell me to not be too picky, but i'm already so insecure about my height that being together with a shorter guy would be a daily reminder of this…

5’11 here.
My height doesn’t come up often. Im slim, I wear nice clothes, I have tall and short friends, and I take care of myself. No one says anything bad to me about my height. People compliment me and say I could be a model. People also compliment my short best friend and tell her she’s so feminine. I don’t know why short girls wanna shit on tall girls, but just do you. I don’t know why some tall girls feel bad about it when it’s been marketed as so attractive for so long. You guys must’ve had some shit experiences as a child. But that’s over now, you’re adults. Obsessing over your height makes you look childish and insecure. No one cares. And if they do, fuck them and find better people. Make friends with short and tall people, don’t judge people for their height, and find people who won’t judge you for yours. It honestly shouldn’t even be a factor in your life outside of clothes shopping and dating.

That's like telling somebody who was bullied to just get over it…
You were just lucky, but many tall girls get bullied as children and/or teens. Just because it's suddenly seen as something desireable once you hit your 20s, doesn't mean you can magically shake off all these years of people telling you that and treating you like you're basically a freak of nature…
And let's be real, being tall is only seen as something positive on a young, attractive and thin women; if you're average weight it's immediately no longer cute.

No. 81570

I am 4’10. I’m happy with being short. I’ve come to terms that stereotypically I may appear “cute” rather than pretty or sexy. I used to envy taller girls or even 5”4 girls who are the “average height”. Since I got made fun of in school. But now that I’m older nobody really gives a fuck other than the occasional “u look 12” jokes. Just accepting it has helped my self esteem rather than trying to change something I can’t. The downside is, it’s very easy to put on weight if you’re shorter. A 100lb girl can seem pudgy on a shorter stature if living a sedentary lifestyle. I noticed I do eat less portion sizes than my taller friends. It’s just a matter of anatomy.

If you’re holding on to be being bullied when you were a child as an adult, I definitely would tell you to get over it. Move on with your life.
>being tall is only seen as something positive on a young, attractive and thin women
Kek, yeah? And that’s same for being short or being average. Being young and attractive affect you far more than height. You can be attractive and tall or attractive and short, or plain and tall or plain and short. The thing that is going to matter is the first thing, not the second. Ugly short girls don’t have an easier life than ugly tall girls. Pretty short girls aren’t missing out on how pretty tall girls are treated.

No. 81574

What i was trying to say is, that only if you look model-tier and are also as thin, people are fine with you being tall. As soon as you're normal weight, you'll be called manish or amazonian.
However if you're of normal or short height, nobody will expect you to be that skinny and you'll still appear feminine and somewhat attractive at an average BMI.

>If you’re holding on to be being bullied when you were a child as an adult, I definitely would tell you to get over it. Move on with your life.

It's not that easy, you can't just forget all that. And it's not like getting snide comments a la "i can't see because of the man in fornt of me teehee" at a concert or people asking you whether you really like being that tall (as if that's something i have any control over…) stop once you've hit certain age.

Yes it does. I’m 5’11 but my best friend is pretty short. She’s always mistaken from behind as a child, usually by older people. She even gets the child’s ticket sometimes to movies or events. If they don’t have a womanly body and they’re very short, why is it out of the realm of possibility for someone to think they could be 12? Unless they have classic age signs like grey hair or significant breasts or makeup, with a glance they could be mistaken.
Idk why you think someone would lie about that. It’s embarrassing and makes her feel unattractive and demeaned. It’s not a good thing to happen.

Lmao ok I believe this happen, but I'm pretty sure as soon she turn around and shows her adult face people stop thinking she's twelve. The only reason she might get child's ticket is because people aren't focused and really don't give a fuck not because she genuinely look like a child.
The only reason I don't believe you guys is because every single person I've met IRL who claimed to look like a child online ended up looking very much their age and even a little older sometimes.

I know only one female who gets mistaken for a child. She's short, skinny and dresses like a boy. She does not use makeup.

People mistake her for a kid because she's so socially awkward, looks at the ground and avoids the gaze of others. She barely speaks. Her mannerisms scream an awkward 13 year old.

Unfortunately a lot of spergs that are short and skinny are convinced they are youthful, instead of realising they are radiating awkward teenage behavior. It's not somehow cute or youthful to act like a sperg.

I'm like… 5'9'', so not crazy tall, but above average.

I don't know how to feel about it.

I find a lot of people do equate my height to me being masculine by default, and I definitely don't like that. It's not everyone, of course, but it's enough that I've developed an insecurity about it.

I'm also not straight, so me being tall tends to make people assume I'm the "man" in the relationship when I'm with another woman. That's annoying.

I also have trouble feeling cute in general. I feel like cute is a term more reserved for petite women. I feel like if I want to be attractive, I have to put effort into looking mature and elegant, that sort of thing. It's not inherently bad, but it's just not really my style, especially because I'm still pretty young.

But I like having long legs. I tend to carry my weight okay. And it's not like I've got people constantly telling me I'm a man or whatever. So it's not all bad.

No women are treated like humans by society, honey.

Imo taller girls tend to appear younger more often. If you're very tall and slim you can easily look rather lanky, like a teen who had a growth spurt, whereas shorter ladies really need to watch their weight, just a few pounds can make a huge difference and they therefore also look more "womanly".
Also, the younger generations are getting always taller (i feel like girls who're teens nowadays are already so much taller than my friends and i…), so short doesn't really equal young and tall =/= old.

I'm 6 feet and I didn't really enjoy it until recently. Elementary through early high school was a LOT of bullying.
Now that I'm in my early 20's I'm really enjoying it and have no shame for being very tall (it's especially "weird" since I live in SoCal and take public transit 5 days a week).
Most my friends are about 5'3" and I enjoy being able to defend them. Dating is awful though.

I'm white and this is my experience as well. It is not something to brag about and it is an inconvenience in my everyday life. When I order coffee, I get asked if I'm allowed to drink that. It's humiliating. I don't understand why some tall anons get massively triggered over this, I would like to be taken seriously, but I don't go around telling them I disbelieve their experiences.

The only way I've been able to be thought of as a legal adult is if I wear heavy makeup, use a bunch of tricks to make it seem like my breasts are there, and dress as maturely as possible. Even then I get comments like "you still look just 18, tee hee".

I'm nearly 23 and still a kissless virgin. My friends tell me i'm pretty, older people compliment me as well and while i think that i'm not super attractive i'm sure that i'm certainly not that ugly either.
My main problem is simply that i'm taller than majority of guys. Some of them are shocked when i stand up or downright say it, meaning my height is what puts them off.

As a child was bullied by older boys and treated unfairly by adults. Even now people still think that comments or even jokes about how "weirdly" tall i am are okay. I've developed somewhat of a hunchback after years of trying to appear shorter(also starved myself, because "omg how can a girl weigh 130?!").
Whenever i sit next to a guy o feel self conscious since my hands are so massive (feet as well, but they're of course not as noticable). I'm naturally athletic so the boys in my class always asked whether i lift, since my shoulders and back are so wide.

When i was still a kid i always imagined just being able to peel of a thick layer of skin all over my body and magically be normal sized. I would give everything to be shorter and finally feel like a normal girl.
I wanr to wear cute stuff, look cute, and also allow myself to do cute things and not pretend to be strong, manly and fearless, because this is what everybody expects me to be.
I just want to feel loved and protected for once. My friends were still allowed to occasionally sit on their parents lap at 10, while i was already too big in kindergarten; truly makes you feel like a monster…

How tall are you, anon?
>taller than most guys
Are you between 6' and 6'5" or so? I'm sorry people won't let you be in the role you want.

It's a pity you're straight, lots of bi and lesbian girls like tall chicks. I personally think tall feminine women are super cute.

Regardless! I'm sure you'll find a nice bf someday, maybe go for short (and buff, since you like the protection thing) men? They probably have similar issues, in the reverse.

the stereotype that tall women cant be cute sucks. sucks that tall women are perceived as old defaulty too. people want tall women to be strong, elegant, sexy, which are all good things but thats not what all tall girls want. it can be discouraging.
some inspiration for cute tall girls are definitely models, both gemma ward and lily cole are at 5'10 and are some of the cutest models of their time.

5’5 here and I consider myself average height, but for whatever reason appear taller than I really am and always get comments about how ‘tall’ I am by shorter girls. This has actually made me start to dislike short girls, because their comments always come off like they’re trying to put me down. For example, this chick was like “Omg you’re so0o0o tall, you make me feel like a little kid. Anon, did you know I still fit in children’s clothes?” like, ok? I care why?

I literally can’t do anything about it because I live where there’s a bunch of Mexicans and majority are fat little gremlins. It just makes me kek, because I actually genuinely find tall girls more attractive and wish I was taller, but short girls always seem to think that everyone and their mom wants to look like them.

Idk, I just find long torsos and long legs so attractive. I love long necks too, I think it’s such a beautiful feature specially when complimented with prominent collar bones. Short girls don’t really have those features and if they do, their bodies are always proportioned weirdly. I just don’t find stubby little bodies attractive, specially when the hip to waist ratio is the same… they just look like mini fridges to me. The only time I find short girls attractive is they’re thin and have a pretty face.

I think people can pull off anything if it's tailored to them. Clothes are made to fit average proportions to appeal to the most people and I feel like that decieves people that are very tall/very short into thinking they can't pull them off. I don't think height is a huge factor in pulling off clothing, it just needs to fit correctly.

I remember once I was going on a excursion with my friends in middle school and while we were queuing one of the security guards started separating us into different rows. I just followed his instructions and ended up being trapped inside a bus full of kids younger than me. I felt so miserable I started crying all the way and embarassing myself, they even had me switch to the bus I was supposed to go in first place. I'd say that's one of the cons of being short, looking younger than you are and ending up in situations like this. Also me and my friend didn't get to ride in one of these mexican hats (it had swings) since we were too short and just watched as our classmates had a blast.

She knew it was bad for her and she had doctors telling her to not do that but she was doing it without really noticing until someone told her.

And about the money thing, if you've got no confidence (e.g. because you've been bullied) you won't get a raise either. Sometimes happiness, having a loving partner, a family is more important - something that can be difficult to obtain if most guys rule you out because of your height.

The cons and pros have already been discussed for both heights for the most part, I don’t think there’s much I can add besides if you’re a petite short girl you can shop in the teens section and save yourself a few bucks if money is teight in college etc.

The clear con is 30 plus year old men who very obviously is into barely legal flirts with you. Last week I went to visit my fiancé and I didn’t have my ring because he was getting it resized for me. I’m sitting and a airline worker comes and sits across from me attempting to flirt. Clearly 10 years older(which he later confirmed when asked) then me if not more and he asks for my number, I shop him off. 40 mins another guy this time clearly old enough to be my father as he had greys in his hair, I flat out ignore him. It’s gross because I know I look like a teen when I don’t try, I’m flying so obviously I don’t have makeup and I’m dressing comfortable.

There was this one guy in particular who was ashorter than my chest height and he had the most inbred looking rat face Ive ever had the misfortune of seeing. He used to come up to me and start kicking me in the shins repeatedly, start punching me in the ribs, or call me names making fun of my height. This was during our first few weeks at the school so I dont think he could have hated me for anything Id done but idk. Ofc if I dared say anything back to him then hed get mad kek.

Some have attacked me by saying "Why are you so tall?!" when we first met, probably to make me out to be the weird one and distract from the fact that their height actually isn't exactly normal either.
Or something that also happens is them calling me a man and giggling childishly because they can't see if standing behind me at a concert - again, now I'm confident enough to call them out on obviously just being extremely insecure, but back then as a teen…

any other tall girls really not give a shit if a guy you like is shorter than you? i grew up being told i was supposed to want a taller guy but i don't see what the advantage would be for me. i feel like i would only understand if i was actually short and could actually feel small and cute next to a tall guy. even if a guy is a few inches taller than me at 5'11", it's not like i'd actually seem small and dainty, so why eliminate like 95% of men from my dating pool. it's hard enough to find my type for any height and a lot of guys who are significantly taller than me are really lanky and it's just not my thing.
plus it's kind of hot when a guy is shorter than me but more dominant and aggressive as long as it's not too tryhard. i like it when a guy can't just coast on his height to seem manly coughgrocerycough so he needs to embody it from within.

I'm 5'11(180cm) while my gf is 5'3(160cm). Used to be more insecure about my height, especially as a child/teen mostly because I have been the tallest person in my class, kids would often think of you as shemale. I'm not too insecure anymore except telling myself I need to lose more weight to look petite (weight 67kg but wished I could drop to 60-63kg). +often wear 5cm heels not minding the height, good people are pretty tall there so I don't stand out.
Stopped wearing trousers for a long time since many many of them come as too short, in that case tights are more comfy to wear.

Cons
>your head usually looks stupid big

I have recently become okay with my height and am starting to enjoy it. When I was younger I definitely wanted to be tall, like 6' and think tall girls look super elegant. That isn't to say short girls can't, I just like the look of a tall girl. It also sucks having to eat fairly small amounts, even with exercise, since I have a pretty big appetite.

Agreed. I'm 158cm and when I walk with my friends who are over 190cm with super long legs I feel like they have the seven-leagues boots. I wish I could take bigger strides to reduce time walking long distances, even if the difference is probably not that great.

Weirdly I've never minded being a bit short, but I do think it's more elegant to be tall so I'm trying to get used to wearing heels more. Ideally I'd like to be able to wear 10cm and over heels.

I'm 5' 1/4" and I hate it. I've always hated it, not even petite and slim. My proportions are ridiculous so I don't even get that 'mistaken for a child' thing. I would rather be petite and flat at my height because I always feel heavy and overweight, I have to be so careful with what I eat, how much I'm exercising, watch every pound because it goes right to my gut. Clothes look so awkward on me, I have to wear petite but then everything is tight on my hips and belly, and I love button up shirts but they look awkward on my chest unless they're huge. I can't wear shorts because my thighs are so chunky and my legs are so short they look bad no matter how much weight I lose, I look fat really easily. I've always wanted to be tall, tall girls look so elegant and regal, can pull off pretty much anything, and just look graceful to me. Nicole Kidman is my ideal for height, elegance, and beauty. I'd be happy with literally 2 more inches of height.

Maybe not literally 'universally' but it's pretty much used interchangeably with metric where I live for height. It isn't true for many other uses of imperial - we don't talk about weight in lbs etc. For example, every guy on tinder lists his height in imperial.

I get baffled when I see girls like Shoe and Lainey glamorized with being small (and they’re not even that small to begin with, not that they’re anything wrong with that tough) and there’s this really creepy dynamic it brings with their respective Gregs.

When I was a teen, I wanted to be really tall because I wanted to be a supermodel and I was super depressed when it was obvious that I was gonna grow much beyond 5 feet. I’m mostly over it now but 5’7” is still my dream height. My aunt and some of my female cousins are that height. No fair.

I am 180cm tall. I live in a country where people tend to be small. I bang my head on the top of doors all the time. When I was younger, I wanted to be cute so badly, everything I liked was "cute". I struggled badly with overcoming my gangliness like many tall anons.

But ultimately I realised I was going for the wrong look, and should give up trying to be cute in looks. So now I'm a fearsome giant woman, work as a model (not a particularly successful one, but one that makes money). People don't tend to approach me because I look intimidating, which suits me fine. Every time I bang my head now, I just remind myself that although it's painful and everyone is staring at me, I make money for being tall and skeletal, while they don't.

I'm somewhere between 5'1 and 5'2 (154-157 cm). And in all honesty I'd do anything to be shorter, preferably under 5ft. I admit that I'm strange and insecure so keep scrolling if you want to argue…

I've had dysmorphia since I was a kid, because I was an early bloomer who shot up real quick and was always the tallest and most developed girl in my class until I was 12/13. I constantly got unwanted attention from older men, while simultaneously being patronized by boys and even girls my age. I got accused of being a bully when I wasn't, and my parents were paranoid I'd get pregnant young even though I was socially anxious and rarely left the house. I was told I was going to be a tall, curvy girl with big tits and a badonkadonk butt. Well lo and behold, by the time I stopped developing and to this day, I am a 5'1.5 A-cup with no hips wearing size small everything and my peers accuse me of having an ED.

Also I'm white and live in an area with many Asian and Latina women who are very short (under 5ft), so I seldom refer to myself as being short, much less do I ever brag about being a ~smol bean. My fiance is 5'8" and always reminds me how much he thinks I'm his cute little ~nugget, and I believe it until I see a 6'3 guy with a 4'10 GF in public and I'm just like LOL HONEY NO.

There's something really alluring about small women, and it probably stems from past insecurities and the recent loli ddlg waifu trend… I used to attract a lot of manlets or even just guys under 6ft, who were always obsessed with my height and really petite girls (like, REALLY petite). And I would never hear the end of it. My ex even left me for his friend who was a few inches shorter than me. Sometimes when he was mad at me he'd joke around and say "I should hook up with (X) then, she's probably tighter than you too." Like WTF??? On the other hand, my best female friend in high school who was 5'9" would never shut up about her height and would get outrageously jealous when I got attention from guys, even though she was very beautiul, intelligent girl and I really wasn't that small or special.

Anyways I'll shut up now because I really don't have it bad at all. BTW I have nothing against short guys or tall girls. That's just how human genetics are. It makes me sad though when tall girls and women are made fun of because they a very statuesque and regal, plus they look great in high fashion. Also what man wouldn't want their kids to inherit tall genes?

You're better off without him imo.

I'm 157cm and I barely fit in a A cup bra too, I don't want to be particularly taller or shorter than I am, but I know it's frustrating how people can perceive you because of your looks, which you can't change very easily at that.

So yeah, back on the topic height… Anyone here curious about genetics and how they affect our height? Or maybe environmental factors? I'm curious about where we get our heights from, especially if we look nothing like our parents or siblings. For example my mother and her family are all average height for their genders, but my father is a manlet and his mother was very short. Which is probably why I'm short.

I there is one medical formula that takes your parents, sometimes even grandparents heights and gives the range you should expect.

No. 86759

My siblings and I are very tall, my mother is average height, same as her parents. My father is tall, his parents were very stort, but he had a tall grandfather - so genetics do play a big role.

Something really interesting I heard during a history class in Uni was, that Charlemagne was not only called the Great because he was powerful, but also mainly because he was just very tall. In fact nearly all kings back then were already very tall (even for nowadays standards, read 180cm/6ft+) - in stark conrast to the rest of the population. So lookwise there was a huge difference between noble people and commoners and the simple reason for that was of course that the rich were able to always afford to eat as much as they want. So food does play a role as well (and that's why all those trendy "my raw vegan baby!" moms aren't doing their kids any favors… Same as anorexia stunts your growth).

Now that I think about it, I don't really want to be petite just to validate men's ego, that's really the only reason it bugs me, and also appearing "big" next to other girls but I'm rather slender framed, so I'm even skinnier than a lot of short girls. I just used to feel bad because guys can be kinda short near me and a lot of the girls are around 5'3 and shorter, so I used to think guys naturally would want a girl who makes them feel bigger. But now I'm dating my 200 lb 5'11 manly man and he makes me feel petite and delicate. And I don't notice my height as much any more. If I'm next to a short girl, I do tend to feel kinda giant but also not all short girls are neotenous kawaii beauties.

i don't know why being short is such a desired trait. i personally really hate being "petite", i'm 5'1 and always feel childish next to other women and where i live at least, being 5'6 or more is the most common height, and that's where your proportions start being better imo. less stumpiness and you carry weight in a more attractive way.

i was very into modeling/fashion growing up and admired how tall most models were, and was genuinely surprised to learn that people viewed tall women as being unfeminine and gross since i see them as quite the opposite. idk where i'm going with this but i don't see a lot of bonuses to being short, my height is one of the things that often makes me feel ugly

It's funny how women in this thread don't wanna be cute or adorable when their adults. I fucking love that shit. Treat me like a cute lil girl all day. Eventually, you're not going to be treated like that - you're going to be 40+ and when people stop giving a fuck about you because you aren't a cute 18-22 year old anymore, that's when you'll probably miss it. I'm pre-med and know what it's like to be treated like a kid because I'm surrounded by loads of smart STEM tier dudes, but if anyone pisses me off enough I just spit back at them (not literally lol) and it shuts them up.

110 if you let yourself go? I'm also 5'1.5 but i'm like 120-125 lbs lol…. That being said I wear size small in most things.

After years of wishing I were taller, I actually don't mind my height anymore. Realizing that a lot of hot people are just as short as me helped me get over it

I'm 1.70 m (5'6"-5'7" depending on the site) and while I know it's only a bit above average, all the girls around me seem so short. Men are short too. I like my height, but other people seem to be against somehow… especially guys, they hate tall women.
