It was never talked about, it was never an issue, and as long as the guy was at least a little taller than the girl, they had no problem dating the guy.
Make your way through a legendary adventure with our abdridged guide to Sea of Thieves’ Tall Tales.
I think the media definitely has a lot to do with brainwashing the girls, as someone alluded to. And, no, ladies, just because a guy is the tallest that doesn't mean he's the toughest, or a good protector. You'll have just as much of a chance at having a tall child with a guy that's 5'7, as you will with a guy that's 6'3. It's more mainstream nowadays compared to the late 90s, but it's very much like garage sales if you're looking for a great catch.
The problem with it is: a People girls especially will be in "stat mode". MUCH more picky, comparing numbers like a data-sheet. Many people are in a very different gear when they're going to meet someone from "online". It's a data-point that heeds caution to a gal when he's not a certain , even if he's a bit taller than her.
She doesn't "want to settle". Plus, with a ton of other guys hitting up her mailbox like the mailman on crack, if she's a decent catch, she's going to more easily get caught up in window-shopping mode. Why stop for a guy who's 5'6"-5'7"? Okay, he's cute, but oh, this other guys is 6'0"! Okay, I want a part of guy A, guy B, and guy C. I'm not going to "settle" for the part of guy A, B, or C that I don't like height being one of the issues.
Americans Are No Longer the World's Tallest
In the end, yes, girls are conditioned to get a guy who's "tall". When a gal wants a guy who's taller than merely taller than she is mutually flat-footed, it's about Social-Approval more than anything. She does not want anything that can imply she's short-changing herself -- and a shorter guy sends that signal to her. Society fuels it. The odd thing though is when gals go on about men's superficiality, yet, the height thing they don't want being held against them. Yet, will complain when a guy's high prospect is due to her chest being one of the bigger ones in the room which unlike height is modifiable.
I have dated men of all heights and shapes. It is more comfortable and attractive to me.

I am fairly trim and fit and I like to be in a with a man who is physically superior to me. Of course that is not the only criteria to make a good match, but that is what I feel comfortable with. It is hard enough to create a relationship with another person and if I feel physically awkward with them - well it will never work out. Obviously there is more to a relationship than the person being a certain relative size. I have a female friend who dated a much taller man. After they split up she told me that although he was kind and good in many ways, she always felt too physically overwhelmed by him.
I have also met very tall men who tell me that a much shorter or smaller woman makes them feel uncomfortable in an intimate relationship. And some very tall men only want very petit women. And some shorter men only want a more petit woman. I do think each person should select their partner on the basis of whatever level of attraction and compatibility they feel is okay for them. Years ago I remember meeting a guy at a live music venue. He was attractive to me and we were having a nice conversation. I excused myself to go to the ladies room.
I am not a blonde and never will be. There are plenty of men who prefer blondes, redheads, brunettes, same race, other race, same religion, no religion. I remember one guy I dated was amazingly handsome, had a heart of gold, was extremely intelligent with a great job, we had many interests in common and we had a lot of fun together. By the way he was also a few inches taller than me and very physically fit.
The problem? No matter how much we tried, the sexual chemistry was just not right. He knew it and I knew it.

And I feel like the diminutive sized women I know who all insist upon dating men over 6 feet are missing the opportunity to meet a relatively physically superior man. I am not a phychologist. I am just expressing my first hand dating experience and I also talk to a lot of people about their experiences too.
When we see or meet a gal for the first time she's either hot or not as a package within a few minutes and most of my friends agree with this assessment. Taller absolutely does not equal stronger so it's not an evolutionary attraction that women have. It makes no sense that many women who are 5'2 or so have a minimum height even if the dude is not attractive Guys are so simple There is no reasonable or scientific rationale behind the infatuation women have with height For all in the world I do prefer girls significant taller than me , i'm just 5" But since I have the same thoughts about women that they certainly can not get high enough, I think it's strange that women who want to decide everything in everyday life are so fascinated by tall men and clearly I think best about couples where the woman is highest and preferably significantly higher.
My dream country to vacation in Germany and Holland, where there are quite a few tall women, but unfortunately also tall men, but my wife also has something to look at. Believe that all men are fascinated by very tall women, it boosters our self-esteem and gives my manhood a boost, being in the company of women far over 6 "and preferably over 6" 5, I always seek their company when I'm in town , however, I do not drag my wife to compare, but it is quite freaky to stand next to a guy of cm, everyone else is also small there.
But one thing makes me furious, it's the cumbersome height of discrimination against primarily men who are not over 6 "and also women too high, however, they could choose women loosely among all men, but would rather like everyone Women have a guy higher than themselves. A fact I refuse to accept, the fact that women should be the least in a relationship, I feel it looks stupid, and since men are often physically strong, men will hardly hurt The woman was the highest.
One big problem is that unfortunately there are not as many tall men as men, this is quite boring. I'm a male and I think you're onto something here. My best friend is 5'5, and his wife is 5'2. His height is of no matter to her because he's taller than her.
She even told me that she would probably not prefer to date someone over 5'7 because it would be awkward for her. I think too many people are just brainwashed by the media's cramming of "TALL, dark, and handsome," down everyone's throats for so long.

I say "bullcrap" to that. Different people, different preferences.
I'm 5'9' so I prefer the girl not be over 5'7 because when they wear heels they become a few inches taller , no matter how hot she is. It would just look weird. But, if a guy is 6'2 then this would work perfectly for him. As long as the guy is taller than the girl, what difference does it make as to how tall he is? I just think a lot of girls have been too brainwashed in thinking the absolute tallest guy is somehow the best looking.
I've seen plenty of butt ugly tall guys and girls. It doesn't make you good looking, or a good person. I'm 6'7'' cm and while I prefer taller women if I have to choose, the love of my life happens to be 5'3'' cm. Everyone knows that women on average prefer taller men and while I don't find further studying on this topic worthless there is so much more important things that could be studied. As to me, I am out of this average: I like men well made up proportioned and naturally toned and you can find this and the contrary in all the heights and colours.
So, while I have a strongly defined taste, some wrongly and blindly say that I like anything.
I think it is the opposite: people superficially tend to prefer tall whatever the quality is. They confuse two different criteria: quality and length quantity; they even tend to think that a short height in a man is not virile or a defect. Is a male robin not 'virile' or faulty because the male seagul is taller than him?
Why should the long height be the one considered as the model, the Sun king? I think there is a lot of arrogance and therefore sheer and repulsive ugliness in some tall men just because their heights correspond to the most common view. In short, these surveys are very interesting in order to show up human stupidity and they should be deepened with campaigns that point that beauty is not the exclusivity of just a height or a race. God Himself chose short David -particularly referred to in the Bible as being short and well built- against giant Goliath, while men were looking for a tall man to appoint him king.
As a woman, when a man looks at me as such, I intend to know if he is really aware of how I am made up or if he is just blinded by a certain height. This is a great help for me to disclose his degree of maturity and psychology. I'm a 5'8" male, which I guess is short, and I am honest about it in my personal dating ads. I assume that this is because there aren't enough tall men to go around. I'm 5'8" and it has never been a problem. I only go for women that show me interest anyway, so those women who only like tall guys didn't apply and I didn't notice.
There are many ways for a man to make up for any shortcomings I'm talking about height only BTW. This means that about half of all men are about this height. When you are in the. I keep myself in shape. Worked for others, when I was younger, but mostly had my own businesses. As I look back, an advantage I had was that I was into things that women like, or like to do.
I also taught yoga classes, and natural foods cooking classes. Even massage school is at least an or women to men ratio. I also crewed on a big sailboat for a couple of years, so single women on vacation were always looking for a good time.

Married life is very different. I got into construction and did very well at that, and even built and remodeled several homes, while raising several children. Women like a guy that can build, repair, fix, etc.
