When it comes to dating, I hate to say it but height matters.
Both men and women care about height, and although personality will shine through, height plays a big role in most relationships.
There is no right or wrong answer as to what the perfect height is, but there are some clues!
In this article, I’m looking at – what height do guys like for a girl?
What Height Do Guys Like for a Girl?
There is no definitive answer to this question, but from my experience, most guys prefer a girl who is around their height or slightly shorter.
Being taller than the guy can be a bit awkward and uncomfortable, especially when you’re trying to kiss them!
It can also make some guys feel insecure or intimidated, and it’s not within the social .norm’.
Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule and some guys do prefer girls that are taller than they are.
But overall, if you’re trying to judge what height most guys will be who are attracted to you are, statistically, it’s likely to be a similar height or slightly taller than you.

What Do Guys Think of Taller Girls?
There is a common stereotype that guys only like tall girls, but this simply isn’t true!
Taller girls are often seen as more confident and assertive, which can be attractive qualities.
However, being too tall can also be a turn-off for some guys.
If you’re significantly taller than the guy you’re interested in, it might make him feel a bit emasculated.
It’s all about finding the right balance, and ultimately, the perfect height for you is the one that makes you feel most comfortable in your own skin!
What Do Guys Think of Shorter Girls?
A lot of girls feel insecure about their height and feel like they’re too short for guys, but this is often far from the truth.
The main issue stems from catwalk models typically being tall, and this makes women think that being tall is connected to attractiveness.
This isn’t the case!
There is a lot more that goes into one’s attractiveness, both in physical looks and what’s inside.
In fact, shorter girls are often seen as more feminine and delicate by guys, which can be very attractive qualities.
But again, there is no right or wrong answer. Everyone looks for something different in a partner, there really is no ‘one-size-fits-all’.
Your Size Probably Matters More to You than A Guy!
The truth is, your height probably matters a lot more to you than it does to him.
If you’re worrying about whether or not he’ll find you attractive because of your height, then chances are, you’re going to let that get in the way of what really matters!
Whether or not the two of you are compatible, have things in common, and feel a spark for one another
My advice is to try to relax and focus on enjoying yourself, and let the guy worry about his own insecurities.
The Perfect Height Is Exactly the Height that You Are
This is another thing I find myself saying to women who express insecurities about their height.
The perfect height for you is exactly the height you are.
Seriously. It may not feel like it right now if you’re wishing you were a little taller or shorter, but trust me, there is someone out there who will love you exactly as you are – height and all!

Work on Yourself-Esteem and Everything Else Will Fall Into Place
If you’re insecure about your height or what guys will think about you, it’s more a sign that you have low self-esteem than anything else.
And the fact is, no matter what your height is, there will always be someone who loves you for exactly who you are.
The most important thing you can do is work on your self-esteem and everything else will fall into place.
Instead of stressing over your height, start spending time with people who don’t make you feel bad about yourself and point out the awesome things about you.
Focus on the things that make you happy and don’t let your insecurities get in the way of living your best life!
