[ +178 / -39] That is like asking guys what cups the prefer in women. A, B or C cups?

[ +176 / -13] Well if you just put the height on the line, of course women want taller. But when do people just look at height in people. They look at the overall mix of features. I hope men don’t feel bad from this post due to their height and lose confidence…. Height is just the height… There are so many ways short men can improve themselves.. Even if you worry and feel bad for yourself, there is no way you can get taller so please don’t worry and try to improve in other ways

[ +123 / -128] When I see girls around me who want men taller than 180cm, they are usually below 155 cm.. They look like midgets from far away
