Dating Tall Girls vs. Short Girls

Dating Tall Girls vs. Short Girls

What type of girls guys prefer? If you look closely at the World around you, you will see that 90% of couples are men who are taller then their girlfriend. This is all fine and good but not very scientific. What does science say about this important issue? A study that was conducted on Harward with over 100 couples, only 2 are likely to have a taller woman and shorter man. This suggests that in general, men tend to choose women who are shorter than they and women choose men who are taller than they are. One thing you need to focus is what you can control and forget about what you cannot control, like your height. Guys like girls who are confident and run as far as we can from girls who are insecure about their height, bodies, looks and anything else. Let us consider both cases and see what men think.

What Guys Think Of Short Girls

The first thing guys think about short girls is that height really doesn’t matter. I can honestly say that a girl’s height has never impacted if I was attracted to her, if I liked her or if I wanted to date her. Physical appearance is something that you really can’t change and especially height. If you’re dating in the first place, it means you’re probably thrilled with whatever it is you bring to the table as far as vertical orientation goes.

Next thing guys think about short girls or actually just height in general is that a girl doesn’t have to be shorter than a guy in order for them to be able to date. The whole idea that a guy has to be taller or bigger than the girl he’s dating is just dumb. People have types and preferences, but it doesn’t mean that there is like a standard for if being shorter or being tall is better.

Do Men Really Like Shorter Women?

When men are looking for a woman to date, the list of qualities to consider can seem infinite. There’s hair color, skin tone, style and height. But height is often the first thing you notice on someone. However, this does not necessarily mean that men like shorter girls. Every man is an individual and has different criteria. Most men feel more confident when they are dating shorter women. A research has been done what men think, and what kind of girls are attractive to them:

  • 55% said that they like shorter women
  • 34% said that height is not an issue
  • 11% said that they like tall women

This statistic shows that men are more into shorter women, but that does not mean that if a tall girl ask them to date that they will reject her, but if they can choose, 55% of them would choose shorter women to date with. If a men is shorter and unsafe, he will probably compensate for his height and look for a shorter girl (to feel stronger?).  And if he is shorter and resourceful, he will look for a tall girl. Main thing is to focus on what you got and make it shine.

What Guys Think Of Tall Girls

We can say that some guys like tall girls and others don’t. Like some girls like skinny guys and others like buff guys. For some tall girls we can say that they are cute, while some  have a manly physique and are less feminine. But there are also tall girls who are still very feminine. What most men think is that they handle a short girl more easily, which is of course not true. Another thing about tall girls is that a tall girl usually doesn’t look like an easy target, and some guys with average height believe the girl won’t like them because she is taller, which is not true in most cases. But if guys can sometimes choose between tall and a short girl, they chose tall, because some of them like tall genes.

The first thing that I love about tall girls, and what is really awesome is when they go out with a guy and they are the same height which gives the possibility that they can literally share clothes. You couldn’t share every type of clothing but when it comes to hoodies and things like that.

Do Men Really Like Tall Women?

You can say what you want but there is nothing not attractive about a tall girl. Men who are over 6 feet tall will surely have less problems dating tall women because they will still be the taller one in the relationship. When you look female models, they are very tall. Based on this female ideal, it seems that all of us have a preference for the tall, thin, and willowy look. So when we look at the big picture, why does the survey and scientific results show that men like shorter women? We can say that here is an inconsistency between the media feminine ideal and our real-world feminine ideal. Advantages that tall women certainly have are the following:

  • Clothes fall and drape more naturally on taller women
  • Tall women can handle extra weight much better than shorter women
  • Tall women get noticed more easily in a crowd

If we consider it well, a woman’s greater height becomes more of a liability during mate selection because height is often associated with strength and power. Things we have listed here are things that are highly regarded in men, but less in women.

Things Guys Love Most About Dating Tall Women

1. They’re always easy to find. He will never have to look for you in a crowd, and you’ll rarely get separated at a festival or concert, be sure of it. It may be a bit unusual at first for you and other people around you, but don’t worry about it. The most unpleasant thing that can happen is to get some strange looking views from people on the side, but do not mind them, that’s your thing.

2. Trying New Acrobatic Maneuvers With Her Height is a great litmus test for finding partners who are comfortable with themselves both in the bedroom and in life. There are few things as sexy as a woman who wears her height with confidence. Here also come the various acrobatic maneuvers that you can have with her in bed. I will not reveal that part to you, find out that part for yourself on google.

3. He can meet you halfway for kisses. When it comes to kissing, with tall girls, you can just lean forward and meet her mid-air. Kissing can seem as intimidating as rocket science, but there are some things you can do to make it even better, especially if the girl is the same height or taller than you. So howdo you kiss a girl who is taller then you? Probably, like a beautiful queen or princess from Game of Thrones.

4. Holding Hands can be much simpler There’s probably a pretty minimal height difference between us, so things like holding hands are much easier than with a short girl. Holding hands, one of the most intimate displays of public affection, gets complicated with a lot of arm bending and dangling. Also, as the person who is typically shorter, I gotta say it makes you feel like you’re being led on a field trip at a museum or something like that. 

5. They Look Good In Almost Any Outfit While most girls have a problem what to wear and what to buy, tall girls don’t have that issue. They fit in almost all types of clothing. Because they are tall and slim, it is much easier for them to express their body. They do not have to bother with black clothes to make them skinny. There is a reason why the world’s top designers consider high models to be more desirable (which is why women around the planet’s limbs in high heels). Tall girls often say: “All of my short friends are so jealous because they don’t feel like thigh highs look good on them”.

Things Guys Love Most About Dating Shorter Women

1. It makes us feel helpful. If the guy is a bit taller than a woman, it can serve in a lot of things. If we take some examples as getting dishes out of a high up cabinet or reaching for things when you’re shopping, it makes guys feel necessary. This would be one of the most important reasons we bring to the table as far as this relationship is concerned.

2. We Get Plenty Space in the Bed. With short girls, it’s like we basically got three-quarters of a bed instead of half. What more can you ask of it, when it comes to bed. Also, height is a great litmus test for finding partners who are comfortable with themselves both in the bedroom and in life.

3. We can give perfect hugs for them. You hug us right around the waist, and the top of your head doesn’t even clear our neck. A good hug should not be scientific, difficult, or intimidating. Whether you’re in love or just dating, there is really no wrong way to move in for a hug. If you want to know how to hug a short girl, just relax, don’t over think it.

4. Short Girls are Adorable. This is true whether you admit it or not, short girls are simply adorable. When we say “short”, it is just one of the qualities generally associated with “cute”. It is very clear that you feel more protective and you like when a girl looks up at you. Shorter girls are cuter than taller girls in general because they are more fun size.

Men Want Tall Sons?

One of the topics that we must also consider and what is the factor to this tall vs short girls is the question about our resulting children. More often than not, women date men who are taller than them. As we have already mentioned in the text, if you chose a taller woman it would increase the chances of producing a taller son. However, based on all the data it seems that the attributes of our offspring are less significant than the social effects of having a taller female spouse, as well as possible maturity issues as related to height. Researchers surveyed over 10,000 participants in a 2018 study, and found that there’s a direct correlation between the ratio of a man’s height to his wife’s and their marital happiness and satisfaction. 


There is a lot to say on this subject, but we can’t change how tall or short we are, and honestly I think that’s the beauty of height. We can’t control it no matter how much we sloucher, how tall our heels are, we’re still the same height at the end of the day. In the end it doesn’t matter are you with the tall or short girl. When you’re with the right person that bending down to hold hands isn’t annoying, it’s adorable. I hope this article was informative, and if you have some of your suggestions feel free to comment.
