Ciara Says Her Height Scares Off Men

Ciara feels men are nervous around her because of her height. The singer is about 5ft 9in and at times towers over the men around her. Does this intimidate them enough to not ask her out? Ciara thinks so.

"Some guys are nervous about speaking to me. Maybe it’s because I’m five foot nine-and-a-half. Since I’ve been doing music I don’t really get asked out much."

Has height really played a part in your personal life? These days, 5ft 9in is tall… but not uncommon.

What do you think?

      thanks 4 sayin that 5’8 is average height. I don’t know where these people are gettin that 5’4 is average height because its not. Thats actually below height lol

    Exactly above! What the heck are these posters talking about?! 5’4 is AVERAGE! So yes, she is TALL! You act like 5’9 is average! That is not an average size woman! Most women are NOT 5’9! Most women are 5’2-5’5! So she is telling the truth about how most men react to her!

    I’m 1.8m tall, and can’t say i’ve ever had problems with men being intimidated. The only bugger is that I can’t wear heels, cause my man is about 2cm shorter than me and I don’t like to tower over him, thank god there are great flat shoes nowdays.

    Your such an F-ing HATER!!! Wow you’re a “model,” BITCH! not every one wants to be one. If you’re short and can’t do anything about it.. You have to find and love the good things about it.

    WoW you’re pathetic

    maybe it’s the fact that she wears 5″ heels. i’m 5’10 and have never had an issue with men. :o) lovee being tall.

    I’m 5’8″ and my husband is 5’10”. He loves it when I wear heels and am taller than him.

  6. kiki says

    She is only 5’9? I thought she was 6ft. Five foot nine is tall but she not an amazon. I’m 5’6 and I am just fine with that. Height really isn’t a big deal to me.

  7. Anonymous says

    5 ft 9 is not that tall, but add in 4 inch heels and she is towering over everybody! I am 5 ft 8 and regularly wear 4 inch heels and constantly have guys commenting on how tall I am. Some have said it is a macho thing to want to be bigger than your woman. If he is too weak and too intimidated to stand next to me in my heels he is not the one for me! I def get what she is saying.

    I totally understand what she’s saying! All my friends are tiny and i’m 5’9″. When i first started going out with my boyfriend i had issues with his height but now we’ve grown to love him being the shorter one. I do think height is intimidating and when you have long legs its easy to look “gangly” and a bit wild. Saying that i wouldn’t change my height :D i love it :P

  9. gretel says

    That’s ridiculous, she’s not uncommomly tall.

    I have a friend who’s 6′ & she doesn’t feel uncomfortable at all: in fact, she keeps on remarking every single day how tall she is & how short the rest of the world is, it kind of gets annoying. I’m a shortie 5’5″ & I’m ok with my height. I wouldn’t like being taller than the man I’m with, but that is a matter of personal taste.

    I’m 5’11” and my fiance is the exact same height as me and he also likes it when I wear heels…

  11. friendsfirst says

    maybe they are scared away because she is tall and looks like a boy with hair…that’ll do it. I didn’t know she was that tall. Alot of women are that tall now. I believe Rihanna and Keri Hilson and Kelis are 5’9…and hats off to them for wearing heels…I’m a fellow giantist myself and I never let that stop me from wearing heels…it’s not like you can’t tell that I’m already tall…my boyfriend is 5’8…so you can imagine, but he’s got amazing swagger and it’s cool.
    I used to worry about being tall and you do tend to feel better around a man that makes you feel smaller, but once you hit your thirties…if you are lucky…you start to accept it all…why not?

  12. -ohmy- says

    I am 5’10” for the most part I’ve always been the tallest girl. It doesn’t bother me, but when people go out of their way to mention how tall I am, especially when I wear heels it makes me laugh… Like I forgot how tall I was or something. Personally I like being tall.

    I totally agree, being 6’1 and wearing heels, people ay “oh my god you are tall” sometimes to be a smart a** i say back ” oh really I was 5’5” yesterday I dont know what happened”

    I feel that being too short is just as much a downfall. I’m 23 and 5 feet, and a lot of men I know, feel that too much of a height difference is as “bad” as a woman being as tall or taller than they.

  15. Annon says

    I’m 5′ 8″ (and thin, so it makes me look even taller) and my husband told me he was intimidated by me at first. With heels, I’m taller than most men I work with (I work around men constantly, so that says something). But my husband got over the intimidation thing and we’ve lived happily ever after ;-)

  16. Heli says

    Oh man, I’m so jealous of you guys… I’m barley 5’6’’ :-)

    that’s such a stupid thing to say your obviously the typical airhead bimbo ^ first off if someones tall or short they have to learn live with it as it’s not something that can be changed ^jst cause your a short ass im 5ft 6 but it dont make u better than anyone else ^hell of a lot more to someone then their height but as u can’t see past that that makes u an idiot!lol what do u do select ur friends on height?
    grow up! theres advantages to both!! no point even talking about it!
    gawd so many shallow people its a joke!

    a friend of mine is 5’8 and a half (I’m 5’6) and yes she’s taller than me but I certainly don’t feel it. 5’9 isn’t that tall.

  19. Gem says

    She is tall compared to most men in her industry. Music guys are really short for the most part.

  20. Ellie says

    Ha, I would never want to be that tall… and with heels it would ruin everything. Being short is the best! =^_^=

    • RoseAnne says

      being short is a downfall your husband has to sit down just to kiss you plus you can’t reach stuff being short is not better stop making other woman fell bad because there tall you should fell bad because you are a little shorty it is not sexy being short being tall is the best.

      • ratso says

        being too short or being too tall is both fine…they both have disadvantages. being short feels puny and annoying but being tall also means you cant dance and have slowed lanky movements.

  21. SallyLove says

    ..And I would never want to be short. You could only WISH to have long feminine legs like mine, yours are probably stumpy and chubby, like most short girls :)

    You know when your boyfriend is checking out those hot tall girls at the mall? Well babe just remember what I said :)

  22. Polly says

    I’m jealous of all you tall women! Tall is sexy but at 5′ 2″ all I ever get told is how “cute” I look… ugh.

    • ratso says

      i think peoples raises the standard height of what is really tall way too high. which is really annoying. 5’2 is fine. being too tall makes people kind of like hunchback ogres and they walk funny too. How you look like and how hot your are matters more, most tall people dont look that good, so don’t b jealous of them hhaha

    People should keep in mind that she is in the entertainment industry. For some reason A LOT of people in entertainment are short. That’s one of the reasons that people are so blown away by tall leading men like ryan reynolds and brad pitt. think about the al pacino’s and the tom cruise’s in entertainment. I don’t think she’s saying that she’s some kind of amazon. I think she just means that she’s taller than the avg in the biz and that makes it hard. I’m 5’10” and I went to a prestigious college and I can’t prove it but I think in higher education the men are REALLY REALLY short. I felt like a giant all the time. Then I would go home and I would be normal again.

  28. Booyah says

    I am five ten, and love it. I wear and rock 4 inch heels all the time. When I walk in a room, heels or not, I know there are all eyes on me, and so I use that as an excuse to always dress well. (this site helps immensely with that! thanks Vera)
    When I was younger, if I was having a tight month, I would call the modeling agency, and book extra work. I once danced with most of a basketball time one right after another craning my neck the whole time, and decided I would NOT like being short, and loved being tall.
    If a man isn’t interested in a tall girl, he wasn’t for me. Derrrrr. I never needed that book, he just isn’t that into you. If they weren’t chasing me, I wasn’t interested.

  29. Anonymous says

    I don’t know what she’s talking about. I’m 6ft 1 and a 1/2 and I wear 3-5 inch heels constantly. I love being tall and I feel sorry for short women because everytime I step on the scene all the men are falling over themselves for me. Once in a while I meet a man that’s intimidated but my girlfriends tell me that they sometimes hate going out with me because I steal the show. I really enjoy being extremely tall. I used to model and never had any shortage of men. I’ve dated taller than me and shorter than me. I think most or alot of men love a tall well proportioned beautiful woman because every race, religion, and creed has tried to go out with me. I feel sorry for Ciara she must be doing something wrong.

    Maaaaaannnnnn, 5’8″ ain’t nuthin…try 6 foot 2! Been this tall since I have been 13 and I luv it! Guys are sooooo funny when it comes to their manhood and trying to be all that around women! I remember when I was in high school guys would be like…”you’re cute but you’re too tall!’ WTF?? And the tall guys are worse cuz all they wanted to date was a 5 foot petite chick!…..so what is a girl to do?? I found the shortest man that was up to climbin this tree and been happy for the last 13 years! By the way he is 5’4″ and I DO wear heels around him. There is no shame in my game…if he likes it hell I LOVE it! Nuff said!

    • Lola says

      “5’4″ is average height for women, so anything over that is considered tall.”

      lol. Bullshit.

      5’9″ is like the beginning of tall. Up to 5’8″ is more like average.

      • ratso says

        no thats too damn fucking tall. 5’8 is not average for a woman….what? are you talking about fucking Bigfoot or something. Jesus christ ..whats next ? the 7 feet tall is considered short? stupidass

      no matter what your height is porportion matters most. most short people are smarter . tall people tend to slur. most tall ppl I see are really lanky and clumsy and fat. and hunchback too…LOL ogres

  32. Ciarán Ván Don says

    I think 5’9 is normal for a girl in today’s age, I think everyone’s getting taller these days. I am 6’4 and I consider that a fairly normal height for a man and I think the average height for girls now is 5’8 so I don’t see what the big deal is?!! Maria Sharapova is 6’2 and she looks incredible I think tall girls are sexy compared to short asses like kim karadashin! Though there are alot of short asses in the music industry just look at justin bieber 5’5 if even that, he could fit in my rucksack!

  33. Jenny says

    I’m 5’10 and to be honest, I’ve not had much luck finding a guy taller than me, but most guys in the UK are dwarfs and not very nice people. But I wouldn’t change my height, I only just have started to like the fact that I’m tall, there are allot of good things about it, certain clothes look better on you, you stay skinnier, people say you should be a model. One thing I dislike about being tall is that when it comes to wearing killer heels I don’t have much confidence. But, if your tall, be happy about it, and don’t worry about what others say. If they say “You’re tall aren’t you?!” just be sarcastic back, that’s what I tend to do now. : )

  34. Robel says

    I think that doesn’t matter her hieght for me because I am 1.93 meter long and i love to go out with a kind of woman just like Ciara, she is a symbol of beauty and i love her very much. I wishes her all the best.

  37. K. Black says

    Well, sorry to like rain on y’all tall girls’ parades, but as a matter of fact I hate tall women. Ciara is beautiful, but she opens her arms and she’s a freakin’ helicopter. Same for Rihanna, with her face like a doll’s and her gorgeous body… from a distance! Her hands are more like tennis rackets to me, and I can’t even think about her feet! Not too long ago I worked for Nelly Furtado as an interpreter (with the lighting crew) and I was fortunate enough to stand about 2 feet away from her. Man, what a little goddess she is! She can’t be over 5’2″ and her hands and feet are just so perfectly beautiful, so delicate and cute! I love the contrast with her giant, firm butt… She’s gorgeous, I couldn’t sleep for a couple of nights just thinking of her. By the way, I’m 5’11”

    Im 5’9 and every where I go everybody looks at me like woah. Either they think Im too tall or they are thinking ok she is tall whatever she stands out. I gotten guys check me out like crazy and others have even called me beautifuI, although I dont think Iam. I seen better looking girls lol Idk I just have really low self esteem especially when it comes to guy. You short girls have it easy. hahah : ) I usually get the good and bad of being tall from people but most of it is ok. I dress appropiately and everything and they look at me like im a freaking statue. lol Anyways I love and hate being tall. Cheers for those girls that dont care how tall they are. : D

Yeahh most quys would like 2 have a women shorter than them but if he cant appreciate you for you then hes not the one.. but as you can tall women are attractive and should love thier heiqht.!

  42. Missy says

    Oh my gosh, growing up in elementary school, jr. high, and high school, I was always taller than everyone……especially the boys (back in the 70’s). Now, bay…bee…….I sport the 4 inch heels (been in heels for quite a few years now). I can’t walk in anything higher than 5″, but I’m “doing it” at my age (50) and I love being 5’10” in stocking feet and 6’2″ and above in my stilletos! When I was younger, I always demanded the crowd when I stepped into the party. It’s was great and still is great. God made us all, short or tall. To you short women……….go head ladies and strut your stuff in the highest of heels! Beauty and “the sexy” in all women comes out….no matter what height!

  44. emma says

    I’m a girl, 5,9 ½ feet tall / and 15 years old. I’ve always been tall and always disliked it, but about a year ago I came over myself and my issues with my height, and now I actually like it and I wouldn’t change my height for anything because I’ve finally realized that it’s not really THAT big of a deal if you’re tall, because it’s really awesome that we all look different. I haven’t really heard any complains about my height by guys yet, but If I heard any some day, I’m just saying to you tall (or short for that matter!) girls, screw the guy that complains about your height or your looks. Because beauty DOES come in all different shapes and sizes.

    Ciara looks like 13 yr old BOY! Thats why she doesn’t get asked out. She’s half a dress size away from looking like a full man… Her face is half-way cute but still has a boyish look to it. Her arms look boyish.Shes flat chested and has almost NO HIPS! Then she throws them ugly azz lace wigs on to make things worse…smh

I am not being rude or trying to make you embarressed or uncomfortable. However, you need to humble yourself.

HERE IN THE USA, WHICH IS ALL THAT COUNTS IN THIS CONVO CAUSE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT CIARA. THE AVERAGE WOMAN IS 5’4-5’5 AND THE AVERAGE MAN IS 5’9-5’10. PERIOD. WHICH MEANS CIARA IS TALL FOR A WOMAN AND SIGNIFICANLTY SO. 5 INCHES IS A LOT. THAT WOULD MAKE THE AVERAGE AMERICAN MALE NOT 5’9 BUT 6’2. SO GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT YOU RETARDS.

    I’m 15 and 5’9″ and reading all these comments are making me more proud of my height, before I would avoid standing or sitting straight so that my height wouldn’t be as noticeable but now my self esteem is a lot better and I’m even wearing heels to school. :)

  54. Cassie says

    You’re all saying “Oh yeah, I have a boyfriend/girlfriend EVEN THOUGH I am short/tall” You know why? Because people don’t fall in love with your height. Ok? So if you’re a nice person who’s approachable you can get some loving, it doesn’t matter if you’re 4’11 or 5’11. Anyone who says “Oh being tall/short is better because…” is just insecure about it! Stop focusing on your height and focus on more important stuff. Btw I’m 5’7 which I think is perfect because I’m not looked at as a child nor do I tower over men in heels but out there in the real word I don’t really think about it because it’s silly! And don’t bully people because of their height, you can’t do NOTHING about it. It’s like making fun of someone’s skin color, it’s just not as controversial. And Ciara, you’re absolutely fabulous, go steal one of them Kardashian’s men at 6’10, Kim could have a man who’s 5’6 and at least no one would make fun of them. Smh what a world we live in.

    Wow! reading all ur comments rili makes me say ‘wow’.

In Nigeria, i get to meet alot of short people except when am in da midst of models ….i hardly wear heels cos i hate seeing dat (she’s tall n she’s still on heels) look on girls faces. My gf is 5’11 n she looks great on heels ” i admire her confidence”. To Ciara, being 5’9 isnt dat awkward….

    Quit saying women’s average height is 5”8// thats fucking bullshit . this is not Bigffoot land.

  57. Wesley says

    5’9 is tall for a girl in anybody’s book. This is about average for guys and I’m surprised she’s having such difficulties. Personally I consider 5’5 to 5’7 to be average for a female. Most women I know fall within this range. Regardless, it’s more likely her attitude than her height that scares off the guys. If your gonna look down your nose at people(excuse the pun), of course their gonna take it as an insult.

  58. Mike Elam says

    Well if her height does scare off men, then that says ALOT about bow wow. He obviously wasnt scared or intimidated and he’s shorter than her. 3 inches shorter than her at that. He just had the confidence to approach her regardless, i respect that about him…..

    Im a really short guy, im only just turned 18 and only 4’10”. It also doesnn’t help that im real skinny and an absoulute weakling.

    As for girls, I do get intimidated by girls over 5’2. Not in a bad way but tend to go very shy round them.

    However, I moved to a new area, and I moved in to a all girls shared house. Shared a house with 6 girls and next door there were another 6 who lived next door. All these girls were model students and 5’8 plus. My girlfriend is one of them and is 6’2 and constantly in high heels and also a strong part time dominatrix. Iv’e got used to it, but was extreemly embarrising when all 12 of them took me out for my 18th, and all of them were wearing 8 inch heeled platform boots.

    So to the taller guys, if I date a tall girl, so can you.

  61. chanel3719 says

    It all depends on the guy. Im 5’11” and some guys do seem to be intimidated or maybe its that they aren’t into tall women. Then, there are some guys that are really into taller than average women. Who cares really? Every has different tastes.

    why are all you girls saying “im 5″__ and only 14/15″?? at 14 or 15, you are at your maximum height, so youre not getting any taller. I’m 5″11 and tower over every women i know (and every woman i pass on the street), and taller than many men, but is it so unbelievably life-altering? no. ive been taller my whole life, i dont think about it constantly. i find it funny how many girls are also so quick to say “guys think im so hot though”- if you feel the need to toot your own horn so loud, it becomes painfully obvious you know youre not so hot. just saying. arrogance is ugly.

I’m so glad I’m the height I am…taller than most women, and yet small enough to even look fantastic wearing my highest heels next to my husband. Oh, the average woman’s foot size is also an eight.

I wear a six, at my height. My best friend is 5′ 3″ tall, and wears a size NINE. So…EW.

    i think being tall is beautiful im 13 and 5ft 11 and i love it, but i must admit i do get frustrated when buying clothes. Some boys do find my height intimidating but most don’t care(because i have a cute face..lol…..)the good things about being tall are that my legs are absoulutly stunning, i could do modelling, and it gives me an advantage at sports such as basketball (which i’m 1 of da best in england at if i should say so myself) i’m tired of people discriminating against tall people i think being tall is a gift from God and we should be proud of our heights. To be honest i feel sorry for short people there vertically challenged and there missing out on all the fun tall people have.
    SO B PROUD TALL PEOPLE WEAR HEELS IF YOU WANT TO( if the sell them in your size lol) JUST IMBRASE YOUR HEIGHT.

    I’m 5’9, and I really don’t feel THAT tall. In high school, I was definitely one of the tallest girls there, but now in college, there are many other girls my height. Still, of course, people always mention how tall I am, but I just don’t feel it. I guess, when you are this height, it’s normal to you, but super tall to anyone who is shorter. I used to HATE being the height I am, but now I realize how amazing it is. If you’re young, you may not appreciate it yet, but you’ll see how much it will benefit you when you’re older. In fact, it won’t even be a big deal anymore. And tall couples always look the best. My boyfriend is 6’1 and we look stunning together :)

    I don’t think that’s normal or even healthy for a person your age to be that tall. You could be more vulnerable to diseases later on, cuase research study show that taller people are at higher risk of getting cancer and even die early so being tall isnt all that great.

    im 16 and 5’8. i used to REALLY hate being tall,
    in high school boys used to just ask me “why u so tall” and i jus felt so stupid.
    but then i started liking one guy shorter than me, my friends used to laugh when we hugged, and i felt stupid about liking a person shorter than me, …. but then when we kissed IT FELT NORMAL, i didnt feel i had to get onto my knees. BUT I THOUGHT AFTER WE KISSED HE WOULDNT WANT TO KISS ME AGAIN EVER BECAUSE HE WOULD THINK IM TOO TALL.
    but he kissed me loads of times after so i guess he didn’t mind and now im over being tall and i love it! :D

    Im 5’9 and only 14 so i guess right now i know how she since most guys are shorter than me but i think once im older it’ll get better . but is shes scared about her hieght or watever y does she wear such high heels . but anyway to the girls who are short and are envious of such tall people umm its not that cool walking around the hallways the tallest person there& towering ovr ppl

    Wow. I think this a completely irrelevant debate. I am 5’6″ and I dont think that hieght is even the most relevant factor in beauty. Your personality and how you present yourself goes a long way. And everyone has beautiful features that set them apart from others. It seems as though most of the people that posted feel as though hieght is some sort of fundemntal attribute of beauty -I could be wrong though :-) – after which everything else follows. I actually dont think about my hieght much-I have a different set of features that set me apart-for example my best friend is a model and is 5’10” but when we walk into a room we both get attention. She for her hieght and me for my exotic look-we are polar opposites and both are attention grabbing. She is tall and fair with blonde hair-lanky (in a good way) and I am an olive skinned brunette with very intense green eyes and a more fit physique. She is jealous of me (which I hate-its just not cool) but I never feel envious of anyone, and neither should any other girl.
    My point is simply that we are all beautiful in our own way and no girl should compare herself to another on the basis of just one attribute (if at all). You have to consider the whole person! We are ALL GORGEOUS in our own ways ladies!!! Tall and short, we are all beautiful women.

    I’d love to be 5′ 9″ to 5′ 11″. Height is dignified and beautiful to me. Ciara is so pretty and stately to me. 5′ 9″ is not so tall that it doesn’t look natural. She is lovely, shapely and sexy. I love her new CD. I rode out on it on my way to TN this weekend. She’s the shiznit and knows it!

  86. Model height , not! says

    Thank you! If you really look at her in each photo she has on 4-5 inch heels. She wishes. STOP WEARING THOSE HOOKER HEELS. Now , HER comment isn’t about height; it’s an excuse for not getting the men she want’s. She probably comes off too strong. She does have a mouth on her. She probably is way to head strong ( not smart strong) to get the guy to keep interest for her. Sorry, I have heard her enough times to know men love girly girls. Dames, and shes truly no dame. she looks pretty , but she’s rough around the edges. I’M 5’9, BUT I LOOK 5’7″ / 5’8″ BECAUSE OF MY SHOULDERS ( YOU MUST MEASURE FROM THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD FOR PROPER HEIGHT), Because I slouched as a kid. I was too tall for my age. My doctor thought I would grow to be a 6” footer. I suffer from puppy paws (big limps) .Ha! Sad but true. But , I manage to look like an average tall girl, so for most it all evens out in the end as you get older( I would hope for most).

  87. she wishes says

    truly, if she really was that tall then how tall is the guy standing next to her in the photo. she is wearing 4 inch heels there, that would make her what 6’2″ and she still look shorter then that man she’s holding on to; who clearly looks 5 inches taller than her. what does that make him 6’5”-6’6″. have you ever seen a stocky man at that height look as average height as this dude. he is about 6’2 tops if that.

  88. Cass says

    5’9 scares people off? c’mon, I could see if she was as tall as kimora lee simmons, but 5’9 isnt that unusual.

  89. TT says

    I am 5 9 as well and sometimes i do feel that at this height it reduces my chances of getting a man. I am told that i am sexy all the time but i dont wear heals much , because i dont want to feel out of place. Tall women are sexy when they are curvy though. tall rock!!!!

  90. she wishes says

    I’m not talking about the blk guy, I didn’t see him until later. He is 6’5, but she would still be 6’2 ( as she claim , in heels) and she still look 5-6 inches shorter then that guy. And we are talking in the heels folks. in the heels. So calculate that info.

    I am in high school right now and I am almost 5’11. I am used to getting comments about how tall I am and although it annoys me, I don’t mind being tall. My friends said that after a while they didn’t even realize how tall I was anymore and they just got used to it,but personally I don’t think I would ever want to date a guy more than a little shorter than me, because I would want to feel protected.

    It’s not that tall, but when everyone else is munchkin sized it can really ruin your confidence. I’m 5′ 9″ and it can really suck.

    You’re being a bitch! I’m 5’5 and 12 years old. Maybe her height does scare off men you don’t know. You’re just being a bitch! And if you’re saying she has a mouth yours must be huge also! Look at you, talking about a girl you don’t know. But whatever think what you may. Just don’t be a bitch about it!

    You could most likely have Marfan syndrome if you’re unusually tall for your age and skinny. Have you seen a doctor, you should.

    I’m 6ft 2. I’m the tallest girl in my school, and I’m only 15. Everyone labels me as the skinny tall girl. I hate it. I never wear heels, and it sucks cause every guy that I like is shorter than me, i have to start going for older guys cus they’ve had their growth spurts.

    so? what is ur point? tall ladies look great in heels beside their husbands too! even if they are taller!

    You are quite rude. Although you were correct in saying 5’5″ isn’t short at all, you were wrong about wearing a size 9. That isn’t “EW”. 5’7″ Kate Winslet wears a size 11 and I bet she is a heck of a lot nicer and certainly more successful than you. Oh yes…and the “average American woman” is actually approximately 5’4″. So check your stats. P.S. What kind of “friend” describes a person as “EW” anyway?
