After being a member on this forum a while you get to recognize posters and remember some of their old posts where they mentioned something about themselves. Also the "Most beautiful AND friendly women in the US are from..." thread had a lot more posters and more activity, thus adding on to it.

Stereotyping for sure, lol. No place/region has a monopoly, but I'll give it a shot. The South; specifically NC for sure.....hehe.

Maybe it depends which forums you hang out in. I have never felt an unbalance of sexual preferences or sexes LOL.

I felt like a giant in Miami and Texas, average height in Colorado and small in Wyoming. So much variation in 'friendliness' as well.
I'm 5'8" and until a few years ago, I worked in a professional office environment, so I wore heels all the time. Those heels generally made me about 5'10" or 5'11".

I married young (early twenties) but got a divorce when I was in my early 40s, so I started dating again. Absolutely zero problems. I don't recall even one time having any sort of height issue, or discussion with anyone. (I live in Texas by the way.)

Honestly, if men had a problem with my height - maybe they just didn't approach me, or maybe I just wasn't attracted subconsciously to shorter men, I don't know. But it didn't make any impact on my dating life at all.

A few years later, I remarried. My husband is 5'11. Now, to be honest, if I put on heels, he will say, "There you go with that Amazon stuff," or something like that. But when he puts on shoes, he's always taller than me anyway, I guess - I don't know. But in a combination of age (I'm now in my 50s) and not working in an office anymore so I dress more casually anyway, most of my shoes have 2 inch or lower heels.

Funny thing - my best friend is 5'2" and I'm pretty sure that when we hang out together we look like Mutt and Jeff. But neither of us cares.

Anyway, my experience in Texas was that:

1) Apparently my height wasn't an issue -and I'm sure it helped that I'm very confident about my height (I really, really, really like being tall).

2) I didn't notice any shortage of men who are taller than me.

3) Yes, I do prefer a man to be taller than me. I don't like stooping down to kiss a man. It just seems like the dynamics of the relationship change somehow. I'm not at all criticizing those who are comfortable with this scenario - I realize it's a learned behavior on my part. But it's a learned behavior that I have no problem with.

Before I read any responses, my immediate answer was "Texas." Texans, both male and female, are very friendly and easy to talk to, and the culture is relaxed. They also still open doors for women and by and large treat women like ladies.

(snip)

And, it's amazing how most anybody will look attractive when they are friendly and polite and have good manners. It's attractive.
I totally agree about the Texas thing. Something about this state tends to bring out the chivalry in some men and the friendliness and down to earth attitude in men and women alike.

And I also agree that being friendly, polite, and gallant (for lack of a better word) brings out the attractiveness in anyone. I mean, Lyle Lovett - with his Texas charm and a face that only a mother could love - landed Julia Roberts, after all!

Funny how a lot of people mentioned men in Texas being on the short side. I guess its kinda true, I'm taller than a lot of men there and I'm 5'10. I don't think height matters that much in attractiveness. Yes, tall certainly helps, but I also had a huge crush on one of my best friends and he's only 5'4. Its more than just height for me, I look at the face shape, eyes, hair, lips, body. Certain things like tattoos or piercings can enhance attractiveness, if they look good on the guy.

I'm short and have a strong preference for women who wear heels. I have no insecurities whatsoever if a woman towers over me.

I was recently in California and attended a church that was 99% Hispanic, mostly from Columbia. All the women wore heels..which was so nice to be around. Many if not most of the ladies in heels were the same height or taller than their husbands. I can not begin to express how pleasant that atmosphere was compared to the typical woman deciding to wear heels or not based on a man's height (or not associating with a shorter man if she wants to wear heels). If I lived in that city I would go to that church weekly just because of this...and if South American culture is like that in general they are better than us in that regard.

I couldn't find anything that breaks down average height by state, but it stands to reason that states with the lowest percentile of folks from northern European stock (world's naturally tallest folks) and highest percentile of ethnic groups shorter than the world average would be shorter in general. Texas is one of four minority/majority states - less than 50 percent of Texans are white, Non Hispanic folks and Hispanics from Central America are significantly shorter than the world average and European averages as well.

Best selection of men are from Houston. They have equal numbers of handsome african american, latino and white guys. This is according to my cousin who comes here to visit and loves men of all creeds.
