Do Women Really Notice the Difference Between 5’11 and 6’0?

Do Women Really Notice the Difference Between 5’11 and 6’0?

When you’re into a girl and want her to be impressed, know that there is a whole list in her mind that needs to be checked before letting you into the safe zone.

The list is big and different for every girl, but there is one aspect that every girl sees in a guy – HIS HEIGHT, and trust me when I say that IT MATTERS!

While considering physical appearance, girls do prioritize guys with 6’0 height over 5’11. But if a girl herself is short in height, she might not go for a much taller guy. Then again it is all about a girl’s personal preferences. Most of the time, they probably won’t see the difference.

It goes without saying that if a woman is conscious of her age, a man is conscious of his height. Both can’t do anything about it but want the situation to be ideal.

This article is about how much a guy’s height matters to a girl. Stick together for an interesting read.

What’s The Difference Between 5’11 and 6’0?

In reality and physical appearance, the difference is just about one inch, which is often unnoticed. A guy can easily say that he is 6’0 while being 5’11, and a girl would believe him.

You might wonder why is a guy’s height so important to a girl. Actually, people associate height with strength. In people’s opinion, the more the height is, the stronger the man will be. And as girls seek security in and from the man in their life, they tend to like men of taller heights.

Even though I really don’t think that just one inch can add too much grace or strength to someone.

We all admire celebrities, but have you ever noticed their heights? I am sure you know that some are tall and some are shorter than the rest.

Following is the table for you to know which famous male actors are 5’11 and 6’0 tall:

Leonardo DiCaprio5’11

Is 5’11 A Good Height For A Guy?

It all depends on your preferences and a girl’s height.

In America, the average height of a guy is 5’9, so in comparison to that, if a guy is 5’11, he is an exception, and who doesn’t like that?

The average height of a girl in America is 5’4, which makes 5’11 quite an outstanding height for a girl but also unwanted in some ways.

5’11 is likable in that it depicts good personality and strength in a guy, but it is undesirable if a woman is too short for that height.

Do Girls Care About A Guy’s Height?

Girls do care about the height of a guy. I know a friend who is 5’11 herself and just can’t date a guy an inch smaller than her in height.

I also know couples in which a girl is taller than the guy, and they wouldn’t care what people comment on them.

But generally speaking, girls like taller men. Even if they’re just an inch taller than them!

One thing that must be kept in mind here is that girls also don’t prefer guys who are too much taller than them.

If a guy approaches a girl who is visibly taller than him, they’re likely to be rejected. But if a guy approaches a girl who is closer to his height or shorter than him, there’s a chance they’ll have a shot. Study shows that women prefer to have a partner who is larger in size than them. I’m not saying that it is a done deal, but generally, that is what happens. So, make your move wisely.

Other Factors Girls Consider

For others, there are also girls out there who aren’t very interested in height and stuff; know the girl first to know her requirements in a guy. An article alone can not help you.

Here are other things girls look for in a guy:

  • Personality
  • Intelligence
  • Charisma
  • Hygiene

It isn’t all about height. Whether a girl will give you a shot can be attributed to many things. For instance, hygiene. It doesn’t matter what your height is. If you smell, you’re more likely to get rejected than not.

Is It Okay to Say I’m 6 Feet When I’m Only 5’11?

Starting any relationship with a lie is never a good idea; in my experience, you always get caught. Also, you keep fearing that the truth will come out one day, and eventually, it does.

The principle still stands while there’s only an inch difference between 6’0 and 5’11. It’s best to be honest with a potential long-term partner than lie to them.

Guys are very conscious about their height, and that is because most girls like them tall.

I don’t know anyone who has lied to a girl about their height, but I know guys do that. I can’t emphasize enough when I say it is a wrong practice.

No one can ever judge your height without a measuring tape or another person standing beside you as a standard of evaluation. The difference is that minor often doesn’t matter to people, so why burden yourself with a lie?

Measuring Height Accurately

Another thing that must be mentioned here is that people often don’t know their height because they are unfamiliar with the starting and ending points used for measuring height.

Sometimes, it is not the guy lying about that one inch. It is just that he doesn’t know what his actual height is.

Here is what I have to say to all the girls: give the guy the benefit of the doubt if you find him lying about his height. Try not to make a big deal out of it.
