Is it normal for guys to not like girls with short hair?

So, before I start off this post I'm not saying all men are materialistic and base everything purely off of looks, but it is a genuine preference because a lot of people base who they date off of what people look like, both girls and boys.

A couple years ago I cut my hair super short and I don't regret it, but I'm currently working on growing it out. I have strictly dates girls for the past 4 years, but now I think I'm ready to date a guy. My hair is kinda off right now.. and I'm kind of scared to jump back into the male dating world because I've had some of them not like me just because of my hair. Is it a valid fear and should I wait? Or should I just try and hope for the best...

Is It Normal?

  • Some people look better with short hair like kendall from barter kings. Preference is normal but I wouldn't let it stop you from trying.

  • I don't think women want to hear this at all but it simply is what it is. Most of us men do prefer long hair, by far. That's just the way it is and we're not wrong in some way for that preference. A girl can still be hot with short hair, but most guys will see it as pulling her down a solid 1, maybe 2 on a scale of 1 to 10 unless they're an exception to the rule, and some guys even see it as no-go altogether like when girls don't want to date a guy shorter than them.

    Looks aren't everything to me. In fact they're almost nothing to me but we all know that's rare. Now we all know OP can have whatever kind of hair she wants and needs to do what makes her happy. We all agree someone who loved her deeply would continue to even if they didn't like that style. Okay? So that's not my point, but we also know OP had a specific question and people don't pop up deeply in love by default. You have to meet and go through things. Reality isn't always pretty and the truth here is that, yes, like it or not, regarding the goal of catching the eyes of men, short hair will be a disadvantage in terms of how many options it pulls, but yes there will be some that like it too. There's absolutely nothing wrong with OP wanting to attract either though so she shouldn't be led to feel shame for doing that. Sometimes what we want, IS to attract. 99% of us are lying if we claim we've never made style decisions that were aimed at attracting, and honestly that's perfectly okay and human nature.

  • Can't you just wear a wig for the time being if your hair is the only reason you're waiting to date men?

    • I mean it'd be a bit deceiving I think but I'm not sure I'd have to think on that one

    • Exactly. No harm in showing what's to come. Could maybe even make it a bit of a tease act. Pretty hot.

  • If you want to change your look just to please other potential partners, stop. Anyone worth dating will like you for being you, not because you changed your appearance for their liking.

    • Thank you I appreciate that and trust me I didn't cut my hair in the first place for anyone, it's just simply because I want to grow it out now. But yes, I wish people's mentality was like that but unfortunately a lot of people are materialistic in this sense which is why I'm asking.

      • Believe me, I understand. My mother’s job comes with an unofficial material status where even though she probably makes half of some of her other co-workers, she feels the need to be at the same materialistic status quo.

  • Short hair has never prevented me from getting a male partner. Even when my head was a #2 shave all around, I still got plenty of partners. It's not about the hair, it's about your energy. Even with short hair I don't feel I present any more masculine. I'm curvaceous and I'd like to think I'm quite "womanly". All these dudes commenting about you having short hair are super dumb and weak and have no idea how to handle a real woman. Your hair is just fine.

    • Honestly girl, love your mentality and how you show yourself. It's admirable and you're 100% right.

    • Well the curves you described are probably hella helping. Grow your hair out and you'll get even more though, if that's what you want right now that is. I mean there's just no getting around that most men want longer hair, which is why they're saying so. Not saying you can't still be hot without it, just that MOST will find you hotter with it.

  • Longer hair is more feminine, it has been for centuries. If you wish to attract more masculine partners, it's a smart choice.

  • I wouldn't let short hair stop me. There are plenty of guys that don't care about hair length. You'll eventually find one if you keep trying.

  • Long hair is more attravtive on the whole. Its just like big breasts. Overall bigger is better, but only to a point, and not for every guy. So don't have hair to your knees but longer is better within reason.

  • I love both,some women with short hair look very good as well as those with long hair so its hard making a general statement
