Why do guys not want to ask out small girls 5 foot tall?

Asked by Fearnie (16points) February 28th, 2010

I am 5 foot tall, quite short. It’s annoying though because I’m 16 and never had a boyfriend, maybe they’re put off by my height?

I doubt it. I know a lot of men who love short women! Something about liking them looking up at them, as if they are the greater power haha.

But aside from that, I think they like small women cause they feel as though they can take better care of you, or that you need it more. And anyway, you may still grow a little!

Maybe they’re stupid too. I’d date a woman that was 5 feet tall. I don’t think height should matter all that much. If there is a mutual attraction between two people and the chemistry is right, you’d think that people would find a way around any height idiosyncracies that they might have. And welcome to Fluther, Fearnie!

how much do you weigh?

HTDC's avatar

Perhaps your height isn’t the reason they aren’t asking you out. I don’t know many people who would immediately reject someone because of their height. Unless of course they are shallow pricks, then I would understand completely.

poisonedantidote's avatar

its not your height, im 6ft 6in and i love short girls, most guys do. maybe its something else, they could just be scared that you will say no.

MrItty's avatar

Height is really an irrelevant characteristic. Why are you assuming that’s the issue? I’d look elsewhere if I were you.

LuckyGuy's avatar

Height is not an issue don’t worry about it. There isn’t a guy alive who wouldn’t ask out Kelly Ripa.

partyparty's avatar

I don’t think your height should be a factor. Your overall personality should be the reason someone is attracted to you.
Don’t make this an issue, it will undermine your self-esteem.

Kylie Minogue is barely five feet tall – she has been voted one of the world’s sexiest women at various times. See:

Do you think guys would ignore her because of her height?

Not only are you short but you are pretty young still. Not everyone has a steady by that age…relax and enjoy your time sans all the drama you get when you are dating. You’ll get your man soon enough.

I’m 5’1” and my husband is 6“1”. I never had a problem with my height in terms of finding guys. My son who is 5’11” is daitng a woman who is 4’11”. It’s easy to fixate on one physical trait and worry about it; maybe it’s making you shy or self-conscious? Try to dress and carry yourself so you feel attractive and be interested and open to other people. I don’t think your height will hold you back. (I have been the brunt of some good-natured ribbing over the years, but take it with good grace and will even joke about my height myself at times.)

Fearnie's avatar

:) thankyou all for your comments, I find them useful :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

There’s an old saying: It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. I’m 6’1”, my girl’s 5’1”. Don’t sweat your height. And don’t put any meaning on the fact that the quote uses dog as anything.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb I thought that might come back and bite me in the ass. I suck at being politically correct.

janbb's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Bite you in the ass? Woof! Woof!
I thought it was cute and not politically incorrect at all. I’s just having fun.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Ok, I thought the use of dog might get a few people torqued. Glad your just having fun.

janbb's avatar

5’ 1”, but I’m scrappy!

john65pennington's avatar

I am 6 ft. 5 inches and my wife is 5 ft. 3 inches. she weighes about 120 pounds. her height and weight are just right. you are five feet tall. how much do you weigh? if you are overweight, this could be the problem.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb Ok now I’m going to get in trouble. The ideal height of a woman is the man’s waist tall with pistol grip ears.

janbb's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Yes, now you are in trouble. Wanna fight?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb I don’t hit ladies, maybe it would be ok with you. Mods, just joking.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb Was that too mean?

janbb's avatar

Naw – I can tell you’re really a softie. I won’t hit you too hard.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb Ok, and no low blows. Is that one of your little ones, he’s adorable. Jesus, I am a softie.

janbb's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe But low blows are what shorties do best! That is my little one’s little one; grandson Jake.

@Fearnie You see, it’s all about moxie!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Fearnie See, she took me out with one low blow and one cute child. Height has nothing to do with how far you get in relationships or life. Although I will get to see more of the parades than that runt janbb.

janbb's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Put down your dukes!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb Ok I surrender to your moxie. And I will not hold it against you you were born in Jersey.

janbb's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe And I won’t tell my Uncle Tony on you!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb Thanks, that was fun.

janbb's avatar

For me too. :-)

filmfann's avatar

I am 6’2, my wife is 5’1, and height was not an issue.
I have never heard any guy speak ill of a woman for her height.

partyparty's avatar

Would you feel differently if your SO was 5’ tall and you were 6’ tall?

ranwulf's avatar

Short is beautiful. I’m about 5’10” and I’m currently mildly infatuated with a friend of mine who’s all of 5’ and about 90 pounds soaking wet. Her height (I call her “delightfully short”) is part of what I find attractive. And those tiny little feet….(was that out loud?).

Captain_Fantasy's avatar

16? Just be patient.

phoebusg's avatar

Short women are cute, especially if they’re asian (for me at least haha).

MorenoMelissa1's avatar

I think guys are afraid to becuase they are never they might say something about the girls heigh.

ARE_you_kidding_me's avatar

You’re 16, don’t worry about it. Height is of little interest to guys.

phil196662's avatar

@Fearnie ; five feet is not short, I am 5’ 5” so you would be perfect! Why they don’t- Hmmmm, I would call it there loss!

Be patient, the right one that appreciates a compact lady will come along..

DarkScribe's avatar

There is nothing wrong with being built closer to the ground – guys like it, they get to see more cleavage.

Freedom_Issues's avatar

They may crush them?

TexasDude's avatar

Every girl I’ve ever loved has been around 5 foot even, and I’m a handsome devil.

JeffVader's avatar

Anywhere between 5’ to 5’4” is pretty much perfection to me, so no pearls of wisdom to offer I’m afraid.

Sophief's avatar

I’m 5’2, and I have never had any problems with my height. My boyfriend is 6’0 and I think he like to look down at me!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Dibley Go back and look at some of my go around with janbb. That’s how civilized people trade insults. No Throw the quarter to your girlfriend, she’ll think it’s christmas insults, even if that is your usual rate.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Dibley Sorry, it’s monday morning, the US lost the hockey game. Just a bad joke.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

It was a great event overall, the Games, not the US losing.

drClaw's avatar

I like the short ladies!!! I’m 6’3” and my girl is 5’2” or 3”

phil196662's avatar

@drClaw ; And when she’s under the covers you think she’s 6 ft because she’s everywhere…lol

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@phil196662 I know I shouldn’t do this, but here goes. As long as she’s a little more than 6” she’s tall enough.

phil196662's avatar

Ahhhhhhhhhhh ha ha ha… The old you must be this tall to ride this ride

Yuffie293's avatar

it might be because of how your personality comes off to the guy…

goldfishchaser's avatar

uhhh maybe they think you look too young? or it could be sumthing else.

graceface's avatar

no, some people like small girls?
