I'd say for women it's at least in the top three items of importance.
I'm a guy, but I know a lot of girls have a strong preference towards average or taller guys. Anything over about 5'8 or 5'9 starts becoming a massive turn off for me. unfortunately you're under average which wont help you though accept it and stay positive, there are girls who are not too pretentious about this.
It seems to be much more important than that unfortunately.
there are plenty of women between 5 and 5 feet 4 inches tall.
Hi whirlpool, I’m a 19 year old Australian guy and I am in my first year of university – well, almost finished it now.
Towards the end of high school, I had some medical issues and I ended up having to complete VCE via distance education.
I'm not a woman but from what I've been told it's pretty important.
I've been told frequently that women would never date anyone shorter than themselves in heels.
I started university this year and I expected that to change.There will be a small minority with the maturity not to let your height bother them.There's one thing I can guarantee if you become financially successful your height will become completely irrelevant. I'm 5"10 ( not very tall) and I notice that girls just want the alpha, tall, muscle guy..stands out.. Make sense, obviously that is a gross generalisation, but it's very common that I notice it happen.Neither of the girls were “out of my league” I don’t think, but obviously they disagree haha. Have I had a bit of bad luck or is this something that I’m going to have to get used to?I understand that everyone has different preferences and such, I just want a realistic idea of it’s importance. i know a few who like to date guys taller than them when they are wearing heels. i'm the same height as you and also the same mindset about it not really being an issue.
That 'look' just fits what most women desire as the ideal mate. I met with her when I was one year older than you and it was my 2nd year; she was finishing uni. Try and find people within your interest area; or dating websites.
