TheTCOLL : Video is so true. The amount of hypocrisy with women really gets me down sometimes. I was 30 pounds heavier and even overweight women were turning me down. I got in better shape, the complete opposite. Most women's profiles say either 59 and 510 and above. Ive never had a problem as I am 6 on the nose but still quite often get "are you really 6? You seem a bit shorter." I then proceed to get them to measure my height and they have nothing to say. Imagine doing something similar with girls?

MaceJace : Thing is though men can't help how tall they are, yet they have to be over a certain height. Weight is something women are able to change yet we are labelled as shallow and as villains for wanting someone of a preferred weight. But when women say that about height it's perfectly fine? Double standards over here.

David : the irony is that short men are the legends if history... Einstein (science), David vs Goliath (battle), Lionel Messi, Maradonna, Sachin Tendulkar (Sports).... even the villains in history aren't tall... Stalin etc... lmao so girls are superficial and can't learn a thing from history either...

achille295 : Okay, Im short. Give me a sec I need to go kill myself

Mr. oldman : 2,628 women disliked the video lmao

spbxl : Wonder how many feminazis had a catastrophic shit fit after watching this hahahaha

airman122469 : I personally have no problem with women having these preferences. I too have preferences, it's fine. What I absolutely hate is when women are hypocritical about it. I have a friend that I know she only dates skinny guys, and when I complained about a woman's weight she got offended on behalf of said woman. I eventually got her to admit her hypocrisy, but it blew my mind that she didn't see it herself immediately. By the way, I agree that judging someone based on their weight is better than judging based on height, as it is an indicator of choices. There are medical conditions that make weight more problematic for certain people, but those are fairly uncommon, and quite frankly are still genetic traits that you probably don't want propagating through your lineage.

Sam : The point is both genders have their preferences. What sucks is guys are judged for having standards by the same ladies that refuse to go for anyone shorter than 6'0.

bloodyredshade : I've been five feet tall since I was in high school. Honestly it's not fun. I've been told plenty of times to my face that the reason why a woman wouldn't date me is because of my height. Didn't matter if I could run five miles, look good, be a gentlemen or could fuck like a mad man. They just didn't like me cause of my height. I was put in the friendzone so many times because of my height it's not even funny. Still I just moved on, dated girls who were shorter than me, namely Asian Women, and just did my own thing. Still though it's a pretty crappy feeling when a woman doesn't give you a chance simply because of something you can't change.

Emil Fitness : I 5.5 and i'm dating a girl who is 5.9. Never had problems with my height, but I guess is just how you feel about yourself and if you are self confident or not. I also think that if a Girl judge you on your height or she want somebody taller then you, then the sea is plenty of fish and I dont want to date a shallow girl like that :)

JustAnotheyGuy : I am a tallish woman married to a short man.I am 5,11(with heels I can get to 6,5) and my husband is 5,6.I have never had a problem with dating men or women who were shorter than me.I love my husband for who he is,not how tall he is.My short husband can carry me,he is strong,and he loves that being short means when hugging,his face lands right in my boobs.He is also happy to buy me heels so he can look at my long legs.So short guys,remember,you are just as good as a tall guy.Ladies who might pass on a short guy,think again,you might be missing out on a wonderful man.

Mugino Shizuri : i like short people

Shazam!! : It's because women want to feel protected and a man's superior stature gives them that feeling. Short men don't cut it unfortunately. Fuck you genetics.

dudewiththename : Being 5'6'' sucks :/

bob loblaw : People obsessed with height are creepy. That goes for both men and women.

Ryan Gunnip : Pretty sure there's a ton of tall women out there who feel like men don't even give them the light of day because of their height.

matt1315s : This is an interesting video. I'm 6'4 there is no short people in my family at all. With that being said I actually prefer tall women. Its not that I dont like short women and I have dated short women in the past. For me its a preference, but ladies if your short its not a deal killer. It just helps if your 5'8 and above. Ladies date short men they need love too.


NerdyIsFly : I feel like if you were to ask guys the question, "do you prefer your girl to be tall or short?", and they were to answer honestly, they would say they preferred a girl who was shorter than them. It may not be a top priority to them, but I know I prefer women who are shorter than me, cause my mom set the standard for me of what an ideal women is and she was short. Also, the thought of being with someone taller than me intimidates me. Anyway, just sharing my thoughts.

ThatGuyDarron : I'm 6'5 and have had women constantly ask me about my height as if there aren't any other attractive features. what about the award winning personality lol? But if I approach a woman solely on the fact she has a nice bum or nice breasts she'll find it offensive? Double standards and hypocrisy are now the norm unfortunately :(

TudiPlays : "traditionally speaking, height is an indicator of status". Actually, in the past, the way to show wealth and power was with your body - that being how FAT you were. If a man was fat, it meant he could afford a lot of food, and that he was 'living well'. Though. Fun little fact she missed, and I don't see women hunting for fat men. Part of the reason that women want a taller men is (and this is just a popular theory) that this is how they are portrayed in media. When you see movies, read books or watch media in general, the man is nearly always taller - hence becomming the standard. And everyone wants to reach this standard.. so the taller the man, the more potential he has :)

Roberto Giménez : I listened for 21 seconds and realized the dude thinks height is not a criteria for attractiveness in women. I'm short, but I use my brain.

Merdiso The Renderer : The girl at 1:18 is just ... damn, that's some natural beauty combined with intelligence/reasoning right there.

Lonnie Kennedy : Why are you all hating on people that just prefer what they prefer? Sucks for the short dudes. Find someone else. It's not that deep lmao.

8 : As a 5'4 guy, I always have people telling me I'm short. And then they ask how I feel about my girlfriend being taller than me like there's something inherently wrong with that. I love my girlfriend being taller than me, it's awesome, there's that much more of her to love. If there's a tree worth climbing, you'll climb it, superficial bullshit aside.

Chuy83 : If height is a thing of good genetics, then it would go both ways. Men would also only want tall women and would only praise tall women as beautiful, but that's not the case, men don't care about height. There are beautiful women of all heights. I have seen beauty in tall and short women. This is just an excuse women make up because they don't want to give up their ignorant, archaic, media brainwashed standards, and really, they just want something that men can not change to hold against men.

Jonathan Tan : My man , this video is GOLD. There's nothing better than revealing hypocrisy

asseater007 : It's not hypocrisy, it's a preference. So what a 5'5 girl won't date a 5'7 guy? A lot of 200 lbs guys won't date a 200lb girl bc they say "women are supposed to be smaller". Well if that's the case, don't expect me to date a man smaller than me.

Dexter : Notice the the woman at 1:18 is hot and smart, the only one out of all those women.

Monstrodolagoness1 : I love that absence of women in the comment section

Andrew Caver : I'm in that awkward position of being a short dude at 5'2 and yet being attracted to women my height or shorter by default. But you know what? The last woman in this video had it right. It shouldn't be about the person's height. If I was hanging with a 6'4 amazon and she and I had a mutual attraction, I'm not gonna pass it up just because I feel "emasculated" or whatever by her height. Yeah, it might be awkward at first, but just like any other negative/unconventional aspects of a mature relationship, you find ways to make it work or you move on. That simple.

yepyepIlove : I find it interesting how women can have a preference for height but if a man says he doesn’t want to date a fat girl all hell breaks loose and the new-age feminists come out.... saying this as a woman.

No One : 2:20 *XDDD*

bulok69 : I'm 5.2" and my wife is 5'9". I got game what can I say

Umar Hanif : why should women have preferences waaaah waaaah

j : lol at the angry male gremlins in the comments. this is the only reason i came

0ooTheMAXXoo0 : Height is not just genetic. It has a lot to do with nutrition and health while growing up. As the truth-telling woman said, height is about genetics AND status because a person with higher status would have access to better nutrition growing up.

Aubrey L : From a biological or psychological perspective, perhaps the reason why women prefer men who are taller than them is because height could be an indicator of strength or power. Women like to be "dominated" in the way that the men are larger than them so that they can feel safe and protected. I'm not denying that both men and women can be shallow about these sorts of things but we can't ignore the science of it.

Mufflee : I'm 5' 3" and I approve this message. I've been turned down SO many times because of my height. FLAT. OUT. TOLD. ME. "You're really cute, but short" Bitch you're really cute but stuck-up. Yet here I am making an effort. whatever. I'm engaged and happy now. fuck hoes. #shortlyfe

David Blankerson : Do you understand that height factors into physical attraction? Liberals want to intellectualize everything. And this guy seems to think men and women are wired the same too, but somehow choose different criteria selfishly.

Russ Sperry : This is gunna make me sound soft but I literally only care about the personality. If you're a girl that makes me laugh and laughs at the goofy shit I do and say. Then we're good. You could be 6'5, I'll still fuck wit ya. (I'm 5'7)

baldy hardnut : I dont think this guy has a life making up some word just to promote himself and his wast of time...

Roy Logan : I bet they wouldn't give a shit if the dude had the money Tom Cruise does.

Billy Goat : If I had a dollar for every woman that found me unattractive, they'd find me attractive.

Anonymous : Angry short motherfucka 😂😂😂😂😂

esta comamosca : Good Job! People must stop proclaiming acceptence for any shit except guys height. Stop being nice with those kind of persons. It's a kind of racism too

Sancho : These are insecure women, actually. Some of them may pretend to be about feminism, but they are actually falling back into tradition female roles.

Camel76 : Height is a good indicator of good genetics and status? When did this start? Never...

jony bob : I always found that it was the insecure girls who prefer taller men and were shallow. The really attractive women were always nice to me. Just my experience tho.

Scott Youtube : My friend. 5'4 here, and been struggling my whole life to find a's caused severe issues, many suicide attempts, and long-term depression. I am told all the time that I am a "Likeable person". I recently did a similar task where I changed my OKCupid height from my realy one (5'4) to 6'1. Same picture etc up, nothing else changed...fuck, did my replies start pouring in by the bucketload!!!! When I admitted straight away that I was actually 5'4 and had done this as a social experiment, I was either blocked and deleted immediately, called a "fucking short cunt" in some instances, told to fuck off and die in other instances, or just plain shamed to hell and back and made to feel smaller than I actually am. Personally, I couldn't give two fucks about a girl's height, I would date a 6'9 woman if she was a beautiful soul and good person, it means absolutely fucking nothing to me, but why do women care so much about this?? Truth be told, the majority of the women I have spoken to about this and asked this question to have responded with the following: "Oh, I want a man taller than me so I can look up to him". "I like a man to BE A MAN". "I like a man to look and feel strong". Seriously, I need some fuckin help, someone needs to start a 5'6 and under only dating site up online, there's a dating site for every other fuckikng fetish you can imagine, so why hasn't this been done before? I loved this video you posted, and you've gained a sub in me, please give me some feedback on my thoughts though?
