A female United States, *ammsteinfan writes:

I was wondering what men REALLY think about women who are petite. I wanted to ask this question because I heard someone say that short women are not sexy enough like taller women, and that guys rather be with women who are taller.

I am 5 feet tall and wish that I could be taller! My bf tells me that he loves me just the way I am!

I have been told by others "boy you are short". I can even remember that song long ago...Short People (dont have nobody to love) I hated that song so much!!!

I don't have short-looking legs...I actually well porportioned for my height! But since I heard that taller women are more sexier than us short girls. Please let me know, especially you men out there!

princeofdestiny agony auntTo me attractiveness is of two types - (1) Looks (beauty) and style (the way you carry yourself, including confidence, shyness etc) (2) Intelligence (social, emotional, intellectual and academic) coupled with personality.

Love at first sight is category (1). While friendship or acquaintance that ripens into liking is category number (2).

By now you'll probably have realised maybe there was no need to question your height........

I'm sure you're beautiful just the way you are......... in guys eyes....... height really would be way down the wish list........ i'LL give you my shallow wish list

Attractive (in my eyes), intelligent, common sense (no point in being super smart without a bit of cop), confidence (and this could also be no.1) and funny........

everyone's different........ and we all have different preferences........ I met a really nice petite girl (under 5') at the weekend........ I live in hope!!

I dont want those daddy long leg/grasshopper legs.if anything the majority of women in the world are below 5'7". That includes marilyn monroe,vida guerra,jessica simpson,kim kardashian,shakira,sarah lime,salma hayek,carmen electra,renatta frisson and the list goes on. I actually read that shorter women have mroe estrogen because estrogen is what stops bone grow, testosterone is what increases bone growth! thats why tall girls were given a while ago "Estrogen injections" to halt bone growth.

Shorter women are more feminine, which explain their curves(small waist,big butt,wide hips,thighs,etc)

Men prefer a Kim kardashian body than a 6 foot tall model with toothpick for legs and looks like a prepubescent child! the fashion industry distorted the female form! men liek meat,only dogs like bones!No man wants sticks fo rlegs, they actually are disgusted by that. Men like the opposite of masculinity, which is femininty. Long grasshopper/daddy long legs are not beautiful! and especialyl when therye thin, they look like tootpicks! marilyn monroe wasnt tall but men would choose her over a boy looking 6 foot tall telephone pole body with long stick legs and size 13 feet

I really hate when itty bitty women are with really tall guys! I'm almost 5'10" (1.77m to be exact), and I hate it: I really wish I was shorter. Also, the fact that I'm build like She Hulk (I do pole dancing and I play football) doesn't help either.

The only reason why my love life hasn't been a disaster is because at least I had have the courage to be the one approaching men. I met my current hubby back in 2010 in a concert and it was because the friend I went to that concert introduced me to him, and I asked him for his #. If I had adopted the traditional "men must approach women, not women approach men", I'd be perpetually single!

In the end, is all about confidence; I feel extremely self conscious because of my big body, but at least I have a pretty face as a back up.

I am only 5.3" and 115. I've only ever gone out with guys that are over 6ft. Not intentionally it's just the ones i've ended up with. My first boyfriend was 6.3" so I was spoilt with the tall ones from the get go. He stopped me on the street and asked me out. I find tall men and petite woman are the best match. I feel so protected with a taller larger man. I love to wear heels and have him still be that much taller. Also they can pick you up and cuddle you with ease. Talk about a turn on. I am now happily married for 15 years to a man that is 6.1" and he tells me that petite woman are his preference because they are cute, sexy, feminine and age well. Also that they can be tossed around and do things in bed that a taller bigger woman cannot. Who doesn't like being tossed around in the bedroom by a big tall sexy guy? Opposites attract I guess! One of the great things I love to do with my husband is sit in his lap. He loves it because I am so small I fit there easily ha ha. Love it!

Well,..

I've never gone out with anyone until 3 weeks ago. I've met him somewhere at the festival with bunch of my friends. You can see that there's a lot of avantage been short or tall.

I found him one time cause he was so tall and he found me cause he was tall enough to see everything and found me. After a few weeks, he's turning out to be my boyfriend. I sometimes tease him for being giant. But he doesn't care because he found a way to call me "cute angel" cause i'm small and loves my personality. So whatever it is, you have a boyfriend who loves you very much so you don't have to worry about a thing. By the way, he's my first boyfriend. o^-^o

Oh I'm 4'9 and my boyfriend is 6'5. It's a HUGE difference but we love each other anyway. No matter what we look like. We stay strong and figure out problems together. Oh my boyfriend said Good Luck!

Everyone has different tastes so there will always be guys that like tall. There are also a lot of guys that like large women. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, so I can only speak from my vantage point.

I personally love petite women to the point that I almost feel like it's been a curse. Mainly because I ended up marrying somebody who is 5'6". I love her for who she is and that's why we married, but physically I'll never be as attracted to her as I was to past lovers. I'm only 5'8", but to me anything larger than a midget, but shorter than 5-4 can not be matched. A petite woman is just the sexiest thing on the planet. They are just built so sensually!

Just the thought of having that small frame laying her head on my chest while I stroke her lower back gives me shivers just thinking about it!!! I could go on, but I don't want to come across like a perv...I just sincerely think that petite women are the most attractive regardless of hair, eye color, breast size, etc.... They just look good!

As a 6'4" guy, there's something really appealing about a gal whose 5' or even less. I personally find petite women way more appealing - and way more feminine than tall women, but there's more to it than that. It's really easy to get used to your height to the extent that I'm sometimes shocked by how tall another guy is before I realize we're the same height. Being around a short girl makes me way more aware of my body, and the size difference is always a fascination. I never get tired of comparing hand or foot size, that's always fun to me.

Also, if you date a guy much over 6', tall women will hate you. Do not listen to them.

If you want someone to appreciate your height, find someone who has a fascination with differences in scale throughout his life. I've been interested in miniatures and portable technology of all kinds since I was little; it's an enduring interest for me.

I'm 4'10"ft. 34 y.o. I get noticed by much taller men and sometimes taller teenage boys will mistake me for a peer and try to ask me out but of course I decline. Whenever I'm out I can usually walk around unnoticed which suits me just fine because I'm happily married and never been much of an attention seeker but recently at a school party for our children where my husband couldn't attend, another female pointed out that all the tall men were sneaking glances at us (she was petite too) she said she'd never been around a shorter woman and was feeling a bit jealous as a single woman because the men seemed more interested in me.

For someone who's happily married I know it's easy for me to be confident but if I'm not someone's taste, then so be it. There's someone for everyone and we're thankfully not all attracted to the same things in a potential partner neither on a deeper or superficial level. Nor do our preferences take equal importance. I believe my husband has dated someone who was taller than him but I've also dated much taller men than him in the past.

A reader, anonymous, writes (6 June 2011):

I noticed your question is from 2006 and that you proabably found your answer by now, but maybe this can help somebody else.

First of all, I think your self-consciousness as a lot to do with your mother.

I am girl 5'11 tall and I actually like it, I reckon it is one of the things that makes me unique!

My father is an english man 6' tall and while growing-up he kept telling (half serious, half joking) that women should be "petite and perfect".

He was quite a "stud" back in the days and he always repited that petite women are the most proportional, elegant and beautiful. That most of tall woman are gangling.

And who would guess with a tall father and a medium mother I would turn out petite? I tell my father (kidding) that he has put a curse on my when I was a baby!

But I understand you. You listen to what your mother says and you turn the TV on and you see this super-tall models, besides you can hear everywhere someone talking passionately about model's very long legs. I would say most people consider long legs sexy, but let's face it more important than long legs are well-shaped, proportional legs accompanied by a nice walk. I also think tall women definitely call more attention (to their figure) when they walk into a room and maybe that's way models are tall.

There are good things about being petite and good things about being tall.

Personally, I always felt that man were instinctively more protective and careful about me partly because of my height.

My bf is 6'3 tall and he likes the fact that I am petite too (That's what he tells me anyway!)

Now in retrospective, the only bad (or less nice) comments I have heard about my height were from women... I believe that women in general are so self-conscious/insecure about themselves that they pass it out to other women. (probably because of the pressure we are under to meet beauty standards)

Do I sometimes wish I was tall (just to have those long sexy legs and presence)? Yes.

But than my father's words occur to me, afterwards I remember the way my boyfriend looks at me, as if I am the most beautiful girl in the planet... (corny as it may be). And if I am still not convinced enough I run to the nearest mirror and I pay attention to all the little beautiful things about me and I say to myself I may not be tall but I surely have reasons to be happy with... and ultimately I realise that I wouldn't look the same (and other wouldn't look at me the same way) if I was taller... then my insecurities fly away.

Trust me, guys love short, little women. I am 5'7", but tiny and I think this is why guys do not ask me out...I am too tall. They love the short little girls and I have always been envious of that. But I do have my share of men who think I am beautiful. It all depends on the man, but from what I see posted here, most men do love the small women. I am very small, just taller at 5'7" than the average woman. I do have to say though that I prefer shorter men. You would think that being my height I would prefer taller men (over 6 feet), but I do not. I like guys who are only around 5'9"ish.

A female reader, anonymous, writes (21 January 2011):

I'm 4'11/12 (or around there, from the last time I was measured when I was 18) and I'm 26, turning 27 in February, and I've learned to accept the fact that I'm short and petite. My ex-boyfriend (who was 5'8) loved that I was little, and the same goes for my current boyfriend. My current BF told me that I'm the shortest whom he has ever dated, but has said that I'm a "good size" LOL. I like how my current boyfriend picks me up (and he is only around 5'5). I also wear a size 1-2 shoe in Childrens' (the little girls' section) and I always get compliments on how cute my shoes are, because I can wear either shiny black, fancy shoes (either in flats or with a little heel) or wear hot golden glittery shoes for work ( really do have sparkly, glittery golden shoes that I have found at Payless in the Childrens' Section). It was so funny, the other day at work, my coworker told me that her 9 year-old daughter has the same golden shoes as that I have. LOL. Hey, I don't mind. :)

The only disadvantage is finding pants and other clothing. Pants are the hardest since I can wear anything from size 0-2 in jeans. For pants, I shop in the Juniors Dept. and the problem is that the pants are often too long for me and I have to get them hemmed. So, as an alternative, I wear a lot of leggings, instead; and leggings go great with certain shirts, dresses, and skirts (the best part about being short and small is that I can rock dresses and skirts really well).

I also occasionally get a few compliments from guys and older men, on how cute and adorable I am (although, I don't get that too often though LOL :) ).

There are worse things in life than dwelling on your height. That's what I have learned. My mother always said that I would be petite when I grew up. I remember her telling adults that (just random people). Even as a kid I looked younger than my age (however, I look my age now. LOL).

However, it's harder to be short when you're a teenager, and when you're in your early 20s (at least from my experience). On the bright side, as you get older, people will notice it less and people will admire you for who you are; and those who want to date you will appreciate you for who you are, and that includes your size. :)

Rebecca- "petite and proud" (after all, even though we're not rare, we're still an uncommon group of people :) ).

Correction. Hayden Christensen is not 6'2". He's like somewhere around 5'8" or 5'9" (quite as tall as me) if you saw him stand next to Natalie Portman (who's usually at around 5'3"), especially in Star Wars Episodes II and III. He obviously doesn't look that tall.

My two cents.

As kids, boys probably like to be around with their mom, who are taller and bigger than they. That gives them a sense of security. But as grownups, most men would not want women who are nearly as big or tall as they are as their lover. Otherwise, it keeps reminding them of their mom.

I'm 5' 9". My wife is 5'. I like to wrap my arms around her, and she likes to be cuddled. In fact, I have to resist the urge to hug the petite women I come across every day! They are mostly pleasant to get along with. Usually, they are the kind that is less confrontational, less aggressive--you know, the 'b'-word.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not a male chauvinist. My wife is stronger than I am in many ways, and I listen to her opinions all the time.

okay girly, the people who are saying "Boy you are short"... have you ever noticed that people who say that are not very great themselves? People who aren't insecure would never comment on things like that.

I'm 4'11 and 3/4. Haha, you can round it up or down, doesn't make a difference to me lol... But I've been with a few guys who are 6'3 and my shortest boyfriend was 5'5. A lot of guys think short girls are cute and taller girls even tell me the same! Most of my guy friends are tall, like 6'0 or taller and they like shorter girls!!! Even the super short ones like us!

I noticed that they never make comments about shorter people because they themselves are confident. But those guys who are shorter get Bugged on by the taller guys, so they bug on the shorter girls. Simple as that :)

Embrace yourself and be thankful that you are proportional! Unless you want to be a runway model, your height shouldn't affect anything in your life!

Short girls... say 4'11"/5' to 5'5" are way sexier than those gals who're 5'10" and up. I know two girls who're like 6'2", they're clumsy and not elegant.

I'm a guy of 6'3" 220lbs, I would never date a girl who's taller and heavier. I'm currently dating a beautiful girl of 5'1" and 110lbs, she's cute and pretty. She has small feet too, I love it...

I just feel it's romantic or something like that, I can "protect her", and she feels she can curl up in my arms and feel safe. I tell ya... I wouldn't have it any other way.

Don't feel bad, I'm a petite girl at 5'5 and men find me attractive and cute! Petite women, in my opinion, have more an advantage of getting a boyfriend/husband. They're more feminine, sexy, easy to pick up and more. Guys like petite women because they feel more manly and protective over their girlfriend/wife. Just be happy you are petite, cause most men prefer small women. Like I said, I love being petite.

Since out society believes that in a relationship the man has to be as tall or taller than the woman, petite women have far more men that they can date. Tall women and short men are at a disadvantage. In the US the average male height is about 5' 9'', 5' 10''. If a woman is taller than this, then she probably will only date less than 1/2 of the available men, depending on how tall she is. If she is really tall, say over 6' then her choices are really limited. A short man has a similar problem. So, be thankful that you are petite.

I know its been a while sence you posted this but i just want to say iff your stiil out there guess what i am a 5 foota too!! but guess what my biggest pet peeve was ?? when people call me sweetie or say that im cute?? i am a single mom of three, i have a 13 year old who is taller than me & my 11 year old is not that far behind ..

I find myself being aggravated over it but in the past year have learned to embrace it. & so far as men go my boyfriend is 6'1. & i wouldnt have it any other way. i would simply say be confident in your shortnes & forget about what men woman & or societity calls attrative & embrace YOU! your whole 5 foot self! imma let u in on a little secreat with being short.. ready!??

1)we have more sacred power than most woman taller than us.. when it comes to being sexy mart & capable what i now love about being short is the element of supprise you know there are some people who see short woman as incapable in some ways as though e are babies incable of being tough & strong willed. & what i have now grown to accept is the cute & or adorable. i feel like if they ("they") think im sooooo cutesy wutsy lets play the game of short & cute which in many cases it has allowed me to have be able to get a pass on may things in life.

Im not saying be mean or rude or steal or lie to get what you want .. its just a fact that i have come to realize that short woman have whats known as P.M. which means passive munipiltive skills meaning we possess the very submissive nature & nuture that all woman want subconciously but is preciecved in the shorter woman. we realt posess the power to get what we want in the sweetest of ways.. rather personal or non personal relations.

Trust me I know. & yes some may argue isnt that true for every one well id say yes! but the more so, for the short sassy, cute, adorable seemgly "inocent" submissive woman. so from this day foward embrace , accept, your sexy very much all woman self!!!

A female reader, Tana  United States +, writes (20 February 2010):

I've been reading a lot of answers about "petite" women, and it's just driving me NUTS! There's a lot of you (men and women) who refer to us, "petite" women as "cute!" Please read my article and find out why a lot of women (and men) would rather not be called "cute."

We’re Not Just The “C-Word!” No, Not That Word -- The “CUTE” Word!

“Cute” as a button!” “Cute” as a bug’s ear!” “Cute” as a bug in a rug!” After writing these idioms down on paper and actually seeing the sentences, I can now understand why some women, especially petite women, have attached a negative connotation to the word “cute,” over the years. By any means, how is a bug’s ear “cute?”

So let’s delve into this word a little deeper. Where did the word “cute” come from? When was it first used? And, why does it now carry an undertone or indirect meaning when used as a compliment? Well, first a little history – the word “cute” is interestingly enough derived from, and is the aphetic form of “ACUTE.” You may be asking yourself, “How in the heck can these two words be related?“ Cute, meaning “keenly perceptive or discerning and shrewd,” was first recorded and published in a dictionary back in 1731. The word cute, etymologist’s believe, became a term of approval for things indicative of acuteness. If anything, the word “cute” is a perfect example of how one word can form and mean something totally different, and at the same time become dissociated from the word from which it was derived. It wasn’t until 1834 that the casual sense of attractive or pleasing was recorded as an American English student’s slang word – hmm, go figure!

By 1930, the usage of the word cute almost always had an implied connotation of being “small,” as the aforementioned idioms above portray. As a test, ask yourself this – How many times have you used the word “cute” to describe something little, like a child or a puppy…or even an apartment? Or, perhaps you’ve used the word “cute” as a safe-word when you’re faced with an awkward situation, or something (or someone) that does not appeal to your liking? Come on girls…let’s be honest, you know what I’m talking about! Okay, here’s one scenario where “cute” becomes a negative:

It’s a Saturday night and you and a girlfriend have been invited to a big time Hollywood premiere. You both are aware that there will be producers, agents and actors running rampant and that this could be your big chance! Both of you are frantically running around, trying this on…that on, adding more makeup, fixing your hair, all the while yelling out random adjectives to one another so fast…it sounds like you’re both speaking in tongues! Then, finally, the moment! The moment when your friend asks the dreaded question: “How do I look?” You notice the finished product is anything but subtle or “attractive,” given she is 5’2 and is wearing a mini-skirt along with thigh-high boots – you secretly cringe, but remember you’ve already slurred out pleasantries while she was incoherently fussing about, (or so you thought). Now you are stuck with the dilemma of whether or not you’re going to tell her like it is, or, have the angst-ridden duty of saying something positive and nice, even though she looks unsightly (come on now, we’ve all been there, LOL!) – SO…you start to utter, with the most ingenuous intonation, “Oh, you look so CUTE!” (enunciating each letter of the word “cute” as well as pronouncing it as if it were spelled with 5-U’s)! Need I say more?

Cute has also been associated with being “quaint,” which we all know can mean peculiar, odd or weird. I, on the other hand, being an ex-valley-girl from California, would say, “Trippy,” if something was odd or peculiar. I, personally, cannot wrap my brain around using the word “cute” to describe anything weird.

The word “cute,” still considered a positive word in the dictionary, thrown out in the context of a compliment towards a petite girl, an older woman, or even a man for that matter, not only borders on insulting (so I’ve discovered in my research), but invokes feelings of wonderment as to what was really meant? It’s really quite contrived when you stop and think about it.

Unfortunately, petite woman are often labeled as cute, cuddly, sweet, fragile, even sometimes weak. On the contrary – petite women are beautiful, intelligent, focused and strong! Just look at our own Editor-in-Chief, Ann Lauren, at bellapetite.com! She is all of these adjectives and more!

I feel, because of the ignorant presumption that “small” women are weaker, have low self-esteem and feel inferior to tall women, we’ve had to be our own self-motivators, boost our own egos, use all our senses and engage our minds fully from an early age, just to prove wrong this preconceived idea. We’ve have to be smarter, be stronger and demonstrate that “small is beautiful (not cute),” that we can do anything we set our minds to, and that indeed, “Dynamite comes in small packages!” We’ve learned to represent and present our positive attributes of being petite, and therefore, have become very tenacious women!

“Charming…pretty…attractive!” These are some of the synonyms I want to hear when describing my persona, as well as my outward appearance. When I looked this word up in the Encarta Dictionary, the first adjective meaning of “cute,” listed: “attractive in a childlike way – endearingly attractive in the way that some children and young animals are.” It’s not until you dig deeper, which is normally the case with anything, that you find out the true meaning of something or someone as I did with this word!

Let’s face it, “Cute” is just not an appropriate word to define adult beauty of any kind. Nor is it a word to define a “Petite.”

I am half an inch over 4'9. My experience is that one can use small stature to wrap a man round ones little finger. Unfortunately, I also find that, for relationships, they would rather have someone of a more normal height though - and it makes me feel rather sad.

Unfortunately, small stature runs in my family and some of my relatives dealt with the problem by giving their son growth hormone in case it disadvantaged him later.

Mind you, I have a really big speaking voice (trained) and this does rather scare most men to death!

Im not the expert about men and women relationship, but i think i can halp you batter understand this, at list from a man's perspective...at list from mine as man, with a certain perspective.

You see- most men actually do go for the normative perception of the ideal woman, wich is a whole lot of hoo-ha just to say what generally men are looking for in a women.

I for one, really like short women. In my eyes most of you are really adorabe. I generally like women with cutie elements in them, but short one's with a lovely face and bod in particular, of course im not a good example since i also like a very large veriety in addition to that + the normative kind, but still that's one person's preference, so i hope it help.

Also, you need to keep in mind that most people, espcially this days are more open minded, so what was not usual then is considerd accepted or even normal today, so guys can be interested in you inspite your "horrific defect of nature" (naa im just messing- your ok on in my book) and probably becuase of how charming you are.

Hope it help!

I asked once an acquaintance how come most men prefer young, petite and preferably asian girls and his reply was because they are like monkeys in bed :D what an interesting reply. In general, height does not really matter - we are all beautiful and sexy in our special ways. What does put me off though is to see that little girls tend to take away the tall guys from us. Why don't they get someone of their size (two little gnomes would look like a perfect garden match)... and leave the tall girls with the tall girls ? We are just as nice, lovely, caring and also feminine. Just because we tend to look over the heads of many (actually the world population is in general quite small), does not mean that we are boring giants.

I am 5' and have always hated being short. My body type is very petite and sometimes I look even smaller than my friends who are the same height. I've never liked tall guys because they make me look short. My current bf is 5"10 and I didn't like him at first cause I thought he was too tall, but now I don't even see it anymore. I wear flats all the time now. It's something that we just can't change. The grass is not always greener on the other side. My friend who is only 5'7 and she hates being tall. She wants to be short...hahaha...it's funny how we always want what we don't have.

I'm 4'10"ft and have dated men of all different heights from 5'2"ft to 6'4"ft. I've never had a preference height wise and no men have ever commented on my height (or lack of it). Hub's 5'5"ft. Had he been the same man but just taller it wouldn't have made a difference though.

rammsteinfan, I'm 6'6" tall; and I've dated girls and women both tall and short... ranging from 4'11" to 6'0". While I've never had a specific 'type' that I've preferred, or targetted throughout my life, I can say with great certainty that the most erotic experience of my life was with a petite woman.

Certainly, women of all sorts of shapes and sizes are sexy, or beautiful; and just as some women prefer muscular men, or tall men, etc... there are a great deal of men who prefer petite women, too.

Don't worry at all about it! Just be yourself; and if a guy isn't into you, just move on. Honestly, you'll save yourself a lot of headaches. Besides, petite women age better.

;)

BTW, my current girlfriend (whom I intend to marry) is barely 4'11" (the second person I've dated that short). She's all of 93 lbs... Chinese... and more woman than any 10 taller women that I've encountered in my life. Considering that I've worked 21 yrs of my life as a doorman in nightclubs, raves, underground parties, strip joints, etc... I've seen my share of women flaunting themselves.

Honestly! You've got nothing to worry about.

Hope this helps!

The simple fact is most women will only date guys who are taller than themselves. Most guys know this and only ask out women that are shorter than themselves. While there are always exceptions to the rule I think your shortness will not pose a problem in your finding a boyfriend.

I am tall and hate it. I am 5' 11" and when I was a child someone told my mother she would have to stand me in a hole!

...and that oh so boring joke "What is the waether like up there?". Yes, and always the teachers at school thinking because you are tall, that you are superhuman as well, given all sorts of physical jobs. Then there is always having to be the 'boy'for country dancing at school. Then there is having to make your own clothes with 4 extra inches on the arms because, in those days, nothing was long enough. Once I had a nurses uniform with an extra bit sewn around the bottom. Then there is everyone moaning behind you because they cannot see. Oh and breaking your neck at the hairdressers because your neck won't go back in the right way the fit the sink. Then there is trying to fit your knees under standard desks or even some steering wheels. Now i have fallen for a guy who likes petite women. Oh and it is SO offputting when a guy reaches up to kiss your lips!!!!

A female reader, Dana33 United States +, writes (20 January 2007):

That is so funny... I am 5'9", and have always envied my adorable, petit girlfriends. Men want to protect you, cuddle you and put you on a pedestal! Men are more likely to approach you, and are usually more gentlemanly around you. Taller women are often perceived as threatening. Men do not universally prefer petit or tall women... it's simply a matter of taste (just like preferring blonde or brunette women).

Sadly, the opposite is not true for men. I have several male friends who are educated, intelligent, handsome and successful, but because they are short, they are often overlooked by women. In general, most women prefer tall guys (which I think is terribly unfair).

People are people. Just be yourself, be friendly, smile alot, and know that you are special in your own way!

"Taller women are sexier than short girls?"

Who said this, a tall women or a guy that prefers tall women? :)

Different guys like different sizes, same as you are attracted to certain types of men.

My girlfriend is the shortest I have been with and I find her the most sexy amazing yummie girl I have ever known. I love petiteness but also she is comfortable and loves her size and her confidence makes her 1000% more attractive and sexy.

You know there is a culture of short asian girls who actually go through painful surgery to stretch their bones so that they are taller? Very dangerous really as they develop terminal medical problems when they age but, HOW SAD that people will resort to such measures to change, don't you think?

Tons of guys adore short girls. A lot of guys have a mentality that they like to "look after" girls and I am very surprised you haven't had more random comments from guys when you're out commenting on how much they love your height.

Stop worrying about this, love your size, love your body, love your boyfriend for loving you and concentrate on something more important in life. World peace??? :)

Amethyst agony auntLook, it's all in the taste of individual man, there's no universal man code for sexyness, even though sometimes you begin to wonder.

I know a lot of girls who are still in the 4 foot range, and they all have boyfriends that love them all the same as if they were tall. And then there are some guys who like that you're shorter than them, I dunno, it's just an insecurity I've seen in a lot of guys if their gf is too tall. See, me, I'm a friggin' TALL girl.... without shoes, I'm 5'10". I wear heels and boots a lot, therefore, I'm usually measured about 5'11" or 6'. My bf is a good 5'8" or 5'9". How do you think I feel about being so tall? It's not like it's going to change, so you've just got to accept it.

And, let me pose a serious question, are you looking for another guy? Because if not, this really shouldn't matter, your boyfriend loves you the way you are and that should be good enough. The guys who are only interested in tall, slim, and tan girls are probably not worth much anyway. So, no worries, right? Be happy, I'm sure you're perfect for your guy. ^_^

eddie agony auntFirst of all, you're short. Unless you're young and still growing, that won't change. You're concerning yourself about this situation whilst your boyfriend is telling you he thinks you're great. My wife is tall. She hated it as a child. She's 5 ft. 10 inches. There are some things we can't change. We must recognize what they are.

You're asking strangers if we find short women attractive. You've already got a guy who says yes. You're already lucky. Sexy is soooo much more that just the body. Many men love an enthusiastic partner. I'd rather be with a woman of average looks who is enthusiastic in the bedroom than a frigid super model any day.
