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.

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…"

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

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.

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.

my 6'4 boyfriend complains that I am small at 5'6. I think it's all relative.

No. 81552

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.
But since you were so coddled as a kid you just can't seem to accept that other people have problems too I guess, 's fine.

No. 81554

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.

No. 81557

>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…

>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!

>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.
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.

No. 81561

Reading posts by short girls who're seething with jealousy like your's makes me feel better about being tall lol, thank you.
But seriously anon, contain your hateboner for tall chicks.

>short women are also infantilized for their entire adult life.

>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"…

No. 81562

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

No. 81563

I'm 5'10 and never dated despite already being 22.

No. 81565

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.

No. 81571

um, what? I work in a male-dominated field and I am taken seriously only when I am 100% consistent about being extremely agressive. If I'm laid back or personal for even a second people start treating me like their daughter. You sound like a very proud person - imagine your boss patting you on the head because you mentioned you bought a car. You'd be fuming too.

No. 81572

>That's like telling somebody who was bullied to just get over it…
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.

No. 81697

>from behind
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've been asked if I'm 12 several times, I don't get why that would be something to brag about? I get wanting to look younger is desirable, but not 12. That is just humiliating.

Come on, anon. Read your original post again and rethink who was being aggressive lol. I only answered those, you were being a cunt even though the posters before you only shared their experiences and never said anything negative about shorter girls.
>As someone who also looks fairly young, I get given the kids' menu at restaurants before even opening my mouth
Even elemantary students already eat adult stuff, what 5-year-old has tits, ass and wears makeup?

Well I also have quite a few very short friends and again, they get treated exactly as I am, they're just shorter, but their figures, faces, styling etc prevents them from looking younger. Maybe your friend just dresses too childish…

No. 81705

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? Just that it can be hard for people who aren't familiar with different facial features to guess their age? If I were to move to a less homogeneous country, people would most likely guess my age just fine.

No women are treated like humans by society, honey. The risk of getting assaulted, the risk of needing an abortion and not being able to have it, the risk of being abused, the risk of earning less, the risk of being objectified or harassed when standards are not met, the risk of being treated as inferior and dumber because of your sex, they are all equal for any height.

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.

No. 81712

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…

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.

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 always thought she was tiny! Wow.

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.

I literally said I know you guys don't do it on purpose. It's more about how some tall people know they do it even if it's not on purpose and they should try to notice it whe they do it and get new habits. I know it's easier said than done.

That's an extremely unrealistic career choice, that often leaves girl in debt and "unusable" by the time they're 25. (Just because you're tall doesn't mean you're pretty and skinny either.)
Being short is a huge advantage at being in opera, so why don't you sing opera anon??? See, doesn't make any sense either…

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.

There was one somewhat shortish guy (I'm 1.78) in my class who always wanted to "fight" me. But we were already older and I also did Karate, so I'm not sure if it was my height that triggered him or something else. I always thought we're friends and that he's just joking, but later I found out that he genuinely hated me.

Other than that at least not physically.
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 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.

No. 82717

That's my mother's height! I think that's such a lovely height for a lady, my mom also has big curly hair so it gives her very cute proportions. The only downside is she gets fat really easily.
I ended up being 5'7 but I always had a soft spot for shorter girls.

No. 82722

I'm your height too.
>>most men tower over and I think thats cute
That's something I find cute for couples but personally I'm not very comfortable with guys who are way taller than me, even though I don't have a problem with women who are taller than me at all. Ideally I wish I could be tall and tower over cute guys but that's just my personal taste.

No. 82726

>shorter legs
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.

feels good to be a little taller than most women around me, but not lanky.

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.

I can only think of a single pro, that my boyfriend is 6' and when we walk together or cuddle I fit into the crook of his arm really well.

4'9 here. I don't get the armrest thing, but I get picked up a lot. Sometimes friends trying to mess with me, sometimes complete strangers at cons or bars. I once worked with a group of cub scouts that discovered they could lift me. Little shits wouldn't listen to me all weekend after that. I get how kids can be amused, but I don't understand how so many adults can think it's okay, especially the ones who can tell how old I am.

On top of everything else in the thread, my kitchen counters are slightly too tall, to the point where I subconsciously go up on my toes or raise my shoulders. It makes food prep pretty exhausting.

>Short people can be incredibely insecure sometimes.
What I get from this thread is that some short girls can get insecure over tall women, and tall women get insecure over short women sometimes too.

Although if what you're attracted to is in line with the majority, people will see you as more of a judgemental prick when you're blunt about it. Especially if it's something they can't change, like height.

Why should americans change their measurements to suit people who use metric? Everyone should just use what they prefer and everyone else is capable of converting it if they want to.

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’m rather short (5’2”) and I have a really small build. I’m not super skinny though but people often call me tiny.

Although I doubt they mean to, it’s kinda like they infantalize me and don’t take me seriously. I want to be seen as an adult. Not a kid. 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.

But ultimately I realised I was going for the wrong look, and should give up trying to be cute in looks.

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. I don't really have any advice to give, except that you should ignore people's opinions and beauty standards where you live as much as possible, but that's easier said than done.

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. But I know people who have tall parents and are short, or vice versa. Anyone have fun stories about heredity?

No. 86749

My ex was a really big guy, head and shoulders above his parents and siblings. He swears it has to do with being overfed as a child, since he was the youngest and his mom spoiled him with food.

No. 86752

I there is one medical formula that takes your parents, sometimes even grandparents heights and gives the range you should expect. I know it because one of my friends was born with a tumor which prevented him from growing, but they were able to artificially give him growth hormones and used that formula to estimate the height he should reach.

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).

No. 86765

Dang that's cool. I knew people in the past were shorter but never thought of the obvious height differences that would exist between classes, specifically kings versus everyone else.

i'm a tall girl (tall for both men and women) and sometimes i get paranoid and wonder if it's because in middle school I ate a lot instead of restricting my diet like a lot of my female peers, but diet restricting would have to be so so so extremely prevalent in order to account for the height difference between men and women, so then I calm downl

My dad is 6'2 and my mom is 5'5. I'm 5'10 (I don't really consider myself THAT tall but I guess it's more than the average girl) and my younger brother is fucking 6'5 or some shit. My brother and I are the youngest out of all of our cousins but I'm the tallest female and he's the tallest male of the family. It's weird because it isn't like our aunts and uncles are exactly short themselves, it's just for some reason most of the girls came out short. We like to joke that the reason my brother and I are seemingly freaks of nature is because my dad was the only one of his siblings to marry someone from outside the country.

>The short answer to this question is that about 60 to 80 percent of the difference in height between individuals is determined by genetic factors, whereas 20 to 40 percent can be attributed to environmental effects, mainly nutrition.

Yeah, there were several kids in my class who always only got all super organic, no sugar, fat or meat lunchboxes from their helicopter moms and then ended up being short.
But some looked down on me and other kids who ate "unhealtily" (read normal) so it serves them right lol

Can confirm, my dad is 6’5” mom is a homely 5’0”. I was very malnourished until 17 (not anachan but parents were young and unconventional - didn’t really care what I ate, no family meals, etc.) I turned out 5’4” - whereas my sister was raised on a strict athletic diet (protein, veggies, low sugar) is 5’7” and younger than me. So, it’s pretty telling that nutrition from a young age to puberty is instrumental in deciding your end height. Anyway, I’ll get back to crying in my average height corner.

I'm a humble 5'5, right smack dab in the middle haha I felt insecure about it for a while because I suddenly went from 5'2 to 5'5 from 16-19 after I thought I was done growing and I used to get a lot of compliments and stuff about how petite I was and it boosted my ego. 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. A lot of them can look stumpy lol. and when standing next to tall or average height people I actually do feel small because I am so thin

Anon, as a average range 5'6" girl, this is not really our thread. Be prepared for someone to tell you off for it.
Regardless, I actually feel the opposite of you. I always wanted to be taller, since I enjoy feeling stronger/bigger than people around me. It could just be cope for me since I have a legitimate wide frame otherwise and had shorter/skinnier friends growing up, so I got used to it.
Luckily, there are many dateless turbomanlets out there waiting for me to literally scoop them up, so hopefully I can live out my dream of being an (artifically) big strong wife. I'm glad you found a big boy to make you feel cute.

i know what you mean about pleasing guys egos. i have dated guys who aren't so tall and my current bf is just average height. they were all obsessed with petite girls and the fact that i'm short(er than them). it's like my primary attractive trait is that i make guys who aren't 6ft+ feel better about themselves. i also compare my height/size to other short women despite being petite and thin.

tbh I'm 5'0" and think it's okay if you share this on here, it's become a general girls height thread and if you feel too tall or too short at times then it's plenty relevant.

No. 87946

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

No. 87949

I'm 5'1.5 and I wish I was an inch or two shorter. But I'm generally happy. I'm slim thicc kinda, nothin too crazy but the proportions are exaggerated because my height which I like. I weigh like 100lb-ish? 105-110 if I let myself go a bit.

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.

Pros of being short : I'm considered cute, "feminine", can date short and tall men, can keep my teenage clothes…

Cons : Infantilized, not taken seriously, look like a child, "uwu ur so smoll, so fragile, I cud break u", always being picked on for being a midget, made fun of by my taller friends…

From time to time, I wish I was taller and slimmer, because you can easily look fat if you're slightly overweight, but overall, I feel good about my height. I'm quite chubby on the legs and the belly, but that doesn't stop me from wearing whatever clothes I like. I like to wear cute long skirts, oversized jackets, etc… It makes me look shorter and maybe chubbier, but who cares? I just like to wear what I like. People would say that some things don't look good on me, but as long as I feel cute in it, I don't see how it's a problem. Short or tall, just wear whatever you like and have fun!

Ahaha, I'm the opposite. I'm 5'6 which isn't that tall but all my family members are like 4'11-5'1. Even the men are 5'6 tops. I had some tall (like 6'4+) grandads so maybe that's the reason.

Sometimes I catch my reflection in public and think I look like a chonk. I'm trying to get over my fear of gaining weight but still be conscious of what I eat and getting enough physical activity.

172cm tall, and I think it's the perfect height for me. I've been told that I'm rather tall for a woman (don't know what's the average in my country), but honestly, I don't feel like it, I've been small all my life until I finally hit puberty at 14, so I still feel scrawny most of the time.

Ngl, I can't help but be slightly jealous of women taller than me, I've been switching my looks to more androgynous fashion and I think it would look better with some additional centimeters, especially in the torso region.

Despite of course fantasizing about having a taller bf whom I could look up to and look small next to, who feels protective about me, realistically I also wouldn't really want to date a too tall man because we'd only end up looking like some tallass freak couple (and if we had a daughter she'd have an even harder time than me)

Anon, wtf, where are you from? 178 is not even that tall, if you tried being a model you'd probably be among the shortest girls on the catwalk. I seriously can't imagine thinking sth like this is "freaky", unless you really live in a society of very low average heights like Philippines or something like this.

No. 140833

178 cm is literally the perfect height imo for a girl. I'm a few centimeters shorter but if I could add a few to become 178 cm, I'd do it in a heartbeat. It's always been my dreamlength lol. I'm sorry you experience to be a dreadful height.

No. 140840

Well, of course I don't want to think of my own body as freaky but enough people act as if tall women are some sort of monstrosity? The average height for women in my country is 165cm and for males 178cm (supposedly…), so if I, at close to 180, would date a man of let's say 190+ (if I find one) then the both of us together would certainly stand out a lot, even moreso than I already do on my own.

No. 140841

13cm above average doesn't stand out, it's like, half a head length taller? Look at the measurement tape, it's seriously not much. People that are close you probably have to look up a tiny bit so sure they'll make a comment, but it's a super normal height overall for an adult woman. I honestly cant think of any reason why would people react negatively to that except for jealousy. When you find your perfect height bf you'll be everyone's couple goals and if you stand out then even better, make people see how cool you are.

No. 140844

>13cm above average doesn't stand out
13cm definitely is a lot. Would you say the same to a woman who's 152cm? Or to men who are 165cm or 191cm?
Plus like I said before, even if I myself wouldn't mind, that doesn't change the fact that all my life people over and over point it out (in a negative way).

>Would you say the same to a woman who's 152cm? Or to men who are 165cm or 191cm?
I would, these are all completely normal heights. But honestly I see we have completely different perception, I guess I was lucky i never got any comments past ocassional "oh, you're tall" (I'm 177cm), so that does change a lot with how given person feels. I hope you manage to move past it and be happy with how tall you are.

Adding on to the tall woman experiences, I experience men who are (usually substantially) shorter than me to have overall tried to directly and randomly hit on me way more than men who are taller than me. I theorize it might be due to shorter men having to put themselves more out there to get girls overall while taller men can take it more cool? Or is it a fetish-thing lol who knows.

I'm guessing it's both, a lot of short men would feel intimidated by having a taller partner because society standards, but at the same time yeah, they probably do have to try harder than taller men.

I’m 5’4”, average, but I work as a commercial model, and for my industry I am essentially a dwarf. A few observations about being a short girl in the modeling industry, and being a short girl in general. First of all the standard of attractiveness I am held to in terms of face, body, hair, teeth etc is infinitely higher than girls who are 5’10+. Also, in my opinion, even outside of modeling (this does depend on geographic area and ‘type’ you fit in to), the shorter you are the more conventionally attractive you need to be to be considered attractive, whereas taller girls get away with much more unusual features. Being shorter also makes me much more approachable (something I personally don’t like) and I feel a need to dress more conservatively and behave more standotffishly to be taken seriously. My agency keeps me around because I can book lingerie, swim, and some beauty. I also spend part of the year in a city whose market is almost 100% swim. While my height definitely plays a factor in the categories I fit into, my face and body type also play a role. Almost all of the short girls I work with solely book lingerie, swim, and beauty as well.
Finally, I think short poorly proportioned or heavier girls are considered a lot less attractive than taller girls who are slightly overweight or badly proportioned. E.g. my boyfriend and his friends refer to short girls with short legs as ‘smushes’, because they look look like they have been smushed down.

Also, reading through other replies, I think that geographic area has a huge impact on perception of height. In my city tall women are viewed as very desirable, but I can see how in a smaller town it might be the other way around.

God I fucking feel this. Almost every single short girl I meet has done this shit to me. I’ve been completely traumatized and now because of it I feel like every guy who shows interest in me is either joking or has a femdom kink. I honestly couldn’t even fathom the idea of having a boyfriend because the thought of him liking short girls makes me want to kill myself because of that type of shit they say to me making me feel so masculine and ugly in comparison.

No. 141128

i’m 4‘8 and it’s shit. my family on both sides are short (father is around 5’5 and mother is 5’0, siblings are same height as my parents) so i basically just lost the genetic lottery and it’s never benefitted me. i know it’s become a thing for shorter girls to boast about how “tiny and smol uwu” they are but i truly don’t get the appeal. i would love to be at least average height if not taller, i envy super tall women a lot but i understand why it’s as frustrating (if not worse because of the stigma/assumptions around being tall as a woman) as being super short

also elaborating kind of on what >>141088 said, being on the shorter side messes up your proportions a lot no matter what body type you have and it makes any kind of weight gain extremely obvious. i stick to cardio because toning/muscle gain on the torso area specifically doesn’t look the same as it does on most people, at least for me anyway. no one ever talks about that for some reason so i’m glad it was mentioned here because it’s depressing having to do nearly double the workout others do just to look an average weight. i think i was around 120 pounds at my heaviest weight on meds and i looked fat even thought that’s standard weight for most people, simply because my proportions are shorter and distribute weight differently

i don’t know if people want to be short because it’s got aesthetic value or it’s ddlg smol bby size kink uwu type shit but it annoys the fuck out of me. it’s embarrassing being treated like you’re not a grown ass woman and it’s not flattering, just patronising as fuck lol

i'm another short anon (5'0) who also mentioned the weight struggle being worse when you're shorter and i feel you right now because quarantine has made me go from 112 to 120 and it is SUCH a big difference, trying to work on it and not let it bother me because other people don't notice but I fucking do and it's just making me sad. even when I was a tiny 98 pound high schooler I have never in my life looked noticeably underweight, but have to stay low just to not hate how I look or go beyond a size small. my heaviest was like, 135 ish I think?? and that's a totally average and healthy weight to so many girls but on me, yikes, frumpiest I've ever looked and I've tried to stay around 100-110 ever since. as for the anon who said to just gain more muscle so you don't worry about weighing more, my build is already a little naturally athletic and if I gain too much muscle I look like a fucking stumpy bulldog.

I feel you anon, this shit makes me so fucking self conscious, if it wasn't for the stupid "uwu I'm so sm0l in comparion to you" shtick they pulled I wouldn't even have noticed those differences. Now I always e.g. worry about my hands being as big or bigger as guys and them noticing, it just makes you feel so unfeminine.

I was ana as a teen and even skelly-me was much stronger than my heavier yet shorter classmates. On the one hand it makes me feel safer against men, on the other hand it also serves to make feel even more like a failure of a woman. Sometimes I wonder whether other girls only pretend to be weak (for example many acted as if me playfully slapping their upper arm genuinely hurt them and I'm by no means a brute), so that they could get guys to do stuff for them or to force me into carrying shit for them.
I guess due to my height I was just always treated as one of the boys and therefore my body was forced to develop stronger?

I don't work out either. What I meant is that because of my height everybody always expected me to be strong, like I had to do work in the garden since I was in kindergarten, then later in school everybody always went "You're so tall, you must be able to run faster, jump further, etc", so I just always forced myself because it's not like I was given a choice to do otherwise and now I'm simply used to it. Nobody ever cared that my arms are much skinnier and less muscular than others, because they always only noticed my height. And then additionally all those other girls using their "I'm shorter, that's too heavy for me"-card… Even if I wanted I couldn't pretend to be weak, because I'm literally as tall as most men, nobody would buy that.

Lol, 100% same but I'm 5'5. Someone will accuse me of ana-posting but I legit only look good when I'm quite underweight on BMI. Like, around 95-100 lbs. All my fat goes to my legs so even if my upper body looks skeletal, my legs look chubby. If I were to be the BMI recommended 115+, I'd look absolutely disgusting. My proportions are comical.

No. 141548

Why do you think they do that? I’ve asked this question before irl and I’ve been told it’s because they’re jealous of me cause I’m ~just so pretty~ but if i was so pretty I wouldn’t be so tall with big hands and feet? Like, even if everything else about a girl is super pretty I feel like those things would ruin it for most people so I doubt it’s that. But also if I think about it in terms of them just making fun of me it doesn’t make sense either? If someone is fat you wouldn’t go out of your way to be like “wow look at how big your thighs look compared to mine heehee! You weigh how much!?! That’s 40 pounds more than me wow you’re so big lol whaaat? I wasn’t trying to insult you I was just saying anon jeez stop being so sensitive”. That’s not really something that happens, you know?

People (especially americans it seems honestly social culture-wise) just really like to give their unsolicited comments about how someone looks because they stand out sometimes.
Being tall is mostly a good thing. Idk who managed to break you down, anon but taking into consideration you're tall you don't have actual big hands or feet. You have hands and feet in proportion to your tall body. It's not a dealbreaker for most people at all. Do you think most men or even people in general really think pr care much about your shoe size?
Nobody comments loudly and elaborates about someone being fat most of the time because it's not a positive. Being tall is a positive and stands out in a good way in most cases. As a tall woman if I see another girl taller than me I go "wow!" in a positive, amazed way honestly.

No. 141550

Maybe not the feet specifically but a lot of guys are turned off by girls being tall cause it’s seen as mannish and having larger hands cause they’re “man hands” or something. And when girls give unsolicited comments about these things it’s not I’m a positive way as the original poster said, it’s in a way where they’re humblebragging about how much smaller and thereby more feminine they are
>omg anon, let's compare, your hand is sooo much bigger than mine! teehee" "well I fit in a size XS"
So I was asking about that

No. 141553

I haven't experienced guys being particularly turned off by tall women. Some could be intimidated but men really aren't picky. So some guys sure, a lot of guys? Most guys? I wouldn't say so. Women are much more harsh about height in dating than men.
It's just trying to have the upper hand at a perceived threat probably. Why else would some of them make a big deal about it? Studies show seeing someone taller has a psychological effect on how others perceive you. They typically will view you as superior if only slightly and mostly subconsciously. So these short women who act like this are just asserting their dominance somehow in whatever petty way they can. Women do be like that sometimes.
Some women with smaller hands have short sausage-fingers anyway which isn't a particularly good look honestly. Completely depends on personal anatomy and proportions more than small being good on women compared to big automatically being bad.

No. 141554

But is dominance really the thing these girls want to be asserting if they’re bragging about how little and cutesy they are? And even if you mean dominance as in asserting they’re more attractive than another girl for being shorter why would they even feel the need to do that in the first place if they already view lack of height as the more girly and delicate ideal?

No. 141555

I just can't figure out what else the point would be? Seems the most logical explanation. Most people understand somewhat that beauty is diverse even if it has some rules. Sometimes it can be a positive to stand out which might be a cause for both good and bad reactions from people depending on the situation. As many average height people here have pointed out.
Also; the grass is greener on the other side effect. Shorter women might be perceived as more cute and traditionally feminine/sexy. Taller women hunch down their posture and can wonder what it's like to be cute and dainty. Taller women are often perceived as more elegant and striking (particularly in clothing). Could easily cause jealousy in some shorter women.
In short, socially being tall has the most advantages so it would be more likely to cause some insecure short women to act out.

They're clearly very happy about not having my body, they're never putting themselves down, otherwise they'd use stuff like "I'm such a midget, my legs are so much stumpier than yours" instead of "I'm sooo petite, even a size xs is too big for me, everybody thinks I'm only a teen!" (with a big grin on their face).
I don't want to wk short men, since they've been often very cruel and passive aggressive to me as well, but I noticed that taller men do that comparison shit to them too, only the other way around, the one with the biggest everything is the "winner", the manliest, the most handsome.

>socially being tall has the most advantages so it would be more likely to cause some insecure short women to act out.
People often use this argument but this is only the case for men. Until not that long ago parents of fast growing girls got treatment to stop their daughters from becoming too tall, being tall as a woman is only seen as positive if paired with being a uber skinny, having a perfect face and working in the fashion industry. No men in any kind of career field respects a woman more just because she happens to be tall. If anything, they perceive her as a threat to their manliness and superiority and as a result treat her even worse. Also, of course not all, but some women do play up the "small and helpless" damsel thing to get male coworkers to do stuff for them or to go easy on them.

Leggy 5'7. Torso of a smol 5'1 girl with the legs of an almost 6'0 person. I'm shorter than most girls sitting down. however when I stand up, people are like 'omg u're so TALL'. I almost always wear heeled shoes just to style on everyone else. ppl legit think I'm 5'10. hahahaha. some scrotelets even thought I was 6 foot just because I was taller than them. bahahahaha. Kinda wish I was taller though cuz i'm a lesbian so don't care about being taller than men. Something like 6'2ish tall with my same face would be great. I'd still wear heels even to the convenience stores too

pros of being short:

- comfy in planes even economy
- more men taller than me
- can buy children clothes (cheap)
- people think I'm younger than I am
- bf can easily carry me
- clothes take less space in suitcase
- shoe size always available


- adult clothes often don't fit
- most things are designed for men/tall people (furniture, cars…)

I don’t know why short girls always bring this shit up. Any guy can carry a girl with ease as long as she isn’t a fucking fatass.

t. 5’7 and 115 pounds

No. 141598

One of the benefits of being short (I'm 5ft) is that I'm a cheap date.
One beer? Good for the next hour.

Even food is cheap. I could eat like three cups of food a day and be satisfied… Although I often overeat because food is my passion. It's taken me a long time to remind myself that ordering only appetizers is okay.

No. 141600

No, it's not just the case for tall men even though it counts for more in their case. Being tall in general puts mostly positive attributes upon you during first impressions with others. Tall women are more likely to be taken seriously in the workplace. Short women are viewed as more nurturing by men though.

I don't think this is necessarily a height-thing. I'm tall and a lightweight both with drinks and food honestly.

As tall myself I'm wondering the same thing. It's one thing to have a bit of a complex about it but seems a bit overblown from statements on here.
Reading on lolcow has reminded me how women almost seem to love to hate themselves honestly.

No. 141620

I love being tall. I’m 6ft. I don’t wear heels though because I would break my legs. But seriously I love being tall, everyone is forced to look at me 90% of the time because my height makes me stick out kek

No. 141638

Because it simply sucks to be tall if you're not somebody who's addicted to getting attention - even if that attention comes in the form of insults.

No. 141641

Probably a dumb question, but how are tall girls taken more seriously? The standards for men and women are opposites, so if you're a woman you have more power if you are physically small, because you fit the standard. Tall women are further from the standard so they have less power. I can see how some can be "intimidated" by them but it's out of bitterness, like "wow, this bitch", does that make sense?

No. 141642

It's a lot less easy to do the 'ol "How are ya darlin'" to a woman in the office who is a head taller than you and who has a wider frame. They find it embarrassing

No. 141643

Meh, it's embarrassing because she's not enough of a woman. Replace the tall woman with a tranny and it's the same situation.

No. 141645

kek nice try with the bait but who gives a fuck about being enough of a woman? seriously still holding yourself to standards of males is laughable

No. 141646

Agreed. Just because you're tall, you can't just waltz in there, get whatever job you want and suddenly all men respect you.
>"wow, this bitch"
That's exactly how it is in my opinion. Shorter women might get hit in more but tall women get passive aggressiveness, men actively working against them or shittalking them behind their back.

No. 141647

>The standards for men and women are opposites
Not really. Men don't care about height the way women do, it's not like fat and skinny where 99% will prefer the latter. Most men will be attracted to women of most heights, and fundamentally enjoy novelty so won't restrict themselves to one type.
>so if you're a woman you have more power if you are physically small, because you fit the standard.
Even if being short really was objectively the standard of beauty for women, since when does fitting beauty standards garner respect? Men wanting to fuck you isn't a form of power.

You have a point that men might be intimidated or passive aggressive about it, but height affecting how seriously people take you is one of those subtle subconscious things. Men don't respect women most of the time regardless of height, but they might not automatically see you as physically weaker and lesser when you're not half their size and they're literally looking down on you. It's not even necessarily about men vs women, children are small, sick/unhealthy people are small, it's common sense that it might influence your perception subtly.

No. 141651

Men don't respect tall women or take them more seriously, they see them as a threat and treat them like enemies. And if a man is against you or wants to sabotage you at work, tall height won't help you either, in the end it's still man vs woman.

No. 141655

It's true. They see you as a 'fellow man'(=competitor) but also as a woman who is trying to compete with them (by existing). Two reasons for them to hate.

No. 141656

What men do some tall anons here surround themselves with? I don't think it has anything to do with height if men around you are plotting against you (definitely doesn't sound weird) like what the fuck is going on in this thread.

The fact is that if you go to google and actually read up on this shit being tall even as a woman has more benefits than cons.

No. 141657

>They see you as a man
The delusion in this thread has me dead. You'll always be female to them kek

No. 141658

Then you shouldn't believe all those short anons who claim that everybody mistakes them for a preteen and that all men everywhere always want to fuck them either…
It is how it is anon, you telling me I must be wrong doesn't change the way people treat me. I've been getting shit for my height since I was a toddler and it likely won't change for the rest of my life (unless somebody invents shortening surgery lol)

You can also google that (despite what anons claim) statistics show that close to all men vastly prefer short women when it comes to dating.

They see you as a female who has the audacity to compete against them and men absolutely hate that.

No. 141659

Are you bisexual or something that you see yourself competing with men? For what, other women? Success at work? Men rival with anyone at work lmao, any woman experiences this. Seriously, let it go, just being tall does nothing for being seen as a man or whatever.

No. 141660

I don't know what you deem short because from studies I've read men find average or taller women more attractive than actually short women. The women around average height are obviously the true winners.

No. 141662

You're seen as a man but the lowest on the hierarchy of men (ex. lower than short men) and out of the woman category. Maybe I'm not explaining well but there was a study saying that men don't perceive women who they don't find attractive as women so for most it's tall women.

I don't see myself as competing with men but they act as if my height is a threat or an attack on them and therefore treat me hostile. I'm a very shy and passive person, so it's definitely not because I have an assertive personality, it's simply my appearance.

Some men might fap to vs models but when it comes to relationships short women are the winners.

No. 141667

Ayrt, me too. They still don't think you're actually a fucking man and are still treating you like a woman. You are retarded for taking men's words at face value

It's a cope for what I've read online on 4chan and other places. Go to /lgbt/ and convince yourself. "Are you tall? Transition! You are a man on the inside".

Yeah, men are insecure about their own height. It's not about you being seen as an actual man.

Why do men act hostile toward you? How do you know it's your height? Sounds weird still.

As stated before men really do not care about women's height when they're dating as much as women by far. There's tons of studies that show this. Most men would date an attractive woman taller than them in a heartbeat. Women of average height have the most advantage in the dating scene but tall women do not have a particularly hard time at all.

You have to own your height. I have two friends who're 5'11 and 6'1. They're attractive women who radiate self-confidence. Both have and have been in fulfilling relationships with men. The only one who's letting your height bother you and hold you back is you, literally. Grow some self-esteem.

Being tall is awesome. Who cares about being uwu smol and cute? If you're tall you can look like a goddess. Just don't get fat because that looks unfortunate and clunky. Thankfully it's easier to be slim when you're tall.

Models are 5'10+ and they're the most beautiful people in the world. I don't think anyone would go "ew no but she's too tall" unless they're an insecure man.

Tall women, I love you so fucking much. What I'd give to be one of you. Tall, powerful, strong. I like myself and the way I am too but damnit!!!!! I'd love to be tall. I'd love to intimidate loser short men like that. Your height alone filters the weaklings. You ladies are gorgeous and I love you, have a great fucking night. AND day. Have a great existence.

Fellow womanlettes, reflect. Do better. Buy the boots with the heels-stop letting men look down on you. Throw away the kitten heels, get at least the 3inchers and look him in his eyes. If you see fear, stop wasting your time and leave him already.

5 ft even here. I just wish I could shop in the womens section instead of jrs.
I tried to justify a trade off in fooling myself to believe that atleast I never have trouble getting a man since they are drawn to smaller women. But, fuck that I don't need a man to make me happy. I just want to wear stylish adult clothes and not look like an out of place child.

No. 142645

I'm tall and I'm sad that my dating pool is limited by this fact. I tried dating shorter guys but taller guys are just sexier. When fucking with a shorter guy I can never get over the idea that he's climbing around on me instead of holding me. When I held my shorter ex during sex something odd happened in my head and I was suddenly imagining that I was the guy and he was the girl. It was a bit unsettling. Oh to be a smol bean. But it will never be.
