Q: Is it a curse to be a tall woman in China?

Why does everyone here want to be the same height? I hear sooo many girls complaining here, either because they're too small or, more commonly, too tall.

 

Think about it: when was the last time you saw a Chinese girl holding hands with a man shorter than her?

Maybe you have not seen my GF and me.  She is 173 cms tall, and still all of her shoes and boots have high heel.  So, with my almost 180 cms of height, I am many times less than an inch smaller than her when we walk side by side holding hands.  

And she also gets many compliments from total strangers because of her height and beauty (She is 34-20-33).  It is my impression that Chinese men do like tall Ladies, but honestly do not know about the short ones.  And from comments heard from Chinese females, they all seem to envy real tall girls.   But maybe that is only in my limited environment.

As for me, I dont have any problem with tall girls. However, most will not go out with guys who are shorter than they are.

The only two times I dated a girl taller than me: One was from Belgium and the other was from Kenya.

I think its worse to be too short. I usually like shorter and thin. My girl friend is the shortest I've ever had and the thinnest, but she still only 12,, kidding about the age only, try x3. I have met 2 women about 6' 8'' at home and just swooned, those legs just went on forever. Of course they get boy friends 5' 2'' about as tall as her legs.

I am nearly 200cm tall and I always get small GF (about 165cm or smaller)... Why? The tall ones don`t seem to like me, on the contrary, my best Chinese friend has model GF, always taller then him... Strange... I wanted a tall one, but how? Now I`m tired looking...  Their thinking is strange... Oh well, as long as everyone happy it`s OK.

I lived in Dalian for a while and a lot of the girls there are very tall (180+).  And all the ones I talked to said they could never date a guy who was shorter than they were when wearing 6-10cm heels.

 

And in general, most of the girls I talked to would not even consider a guy who was too short ( >150), even if they were shorter than them.  For me, I have dated girls from 4'11 to 6'6" and had no problems with their height.  (Though the 4'11" one had a really painful habit of biting during sex.  Ouch.)

Don't you know? It's always greener on the other side. The short girls want to be tall, the stick shaped girls want curves, and we're always complaining about it, whether we're from China, America, or any other country.

I thought it over and I do think it is, it takes too long for the blood to reach their brain.

I used to think being short was a curse, but the upside is that even most of the short guys are taller than me.  A bonus for being in China is that I'm now average height for a woman. I'm only 5'2".

Chinese girls will complain  about anything Lanna, no money, no car, no prada, no old rich man, appearance, weight, height, color too dark, too light, cleaning, working, other women the list just compiles.

A:Getting my second dose of Moderna in a couple weeks. This is perhaps the only benefit of being in the US now. Then I can go to one of the countries that allows vaccinated tourists. IMO, worth the wait. @Nasboroguy: The Chinese government has already admitted that their two vaccines are not as effective as they initially said. No big surprise. Now they are talking about mixing Sinopharm/Sinovac with Astrazeneca. Covid may be (barely) contained in China, but as long as the billions of people there haven't received an effective vaccine, the entire country will be at risk of continuous outbreaks such as Thailand is dealing with now. If you have access to an effective vaccine (there are a few including Pfizer, Moderna, and even Sputnik V) then I would just get it. Sure, the effectiveness will wane after a year or two, but that's what booster shots are for. Although I don't understand why people wouldn't want to get a vaccine, I respect their decision not to get it. As for myself, I feel as if a tremendous burden has been lifted and I can soon walk into a bar for a pint (just not in the US, haha). -- Quinn68
