    Honestly, there are women that care about height. My sister, for example, is truly just not into it if a dude is shorter. You can't change what does or doesn't "rev your engine." It's just a gut thing. For me, though, it doesn't matter at all. I'm just shy of 5'9" and I literally give no f****s about a dude's height. Tall or short, it just doesn't even blip on my "attraction" radar. However, if a guy was superrrrr obsessed with how short he was, and had a bad mood about it, and talked about it negatively, constantly, I'd be put off, and it'd be brought to my mind in a negative light and probably annoy me. But if a dude would just joke about it with me or whatever? Great. I love having stuff to tease my s/o about. So if I had a short man that let me poke at him about it and enjoy it, I'd actually find that fun and sexy.

    Personality trumps the physical casing if you have a chance to get to know people irl.

    How is the fire that is you? Is it a healthy blaze fueled by ambitions and hobbies and self care or is it more like embers? What can you do to stoke it up?

    Yes, many women choose the men first who are 5'11 and taller. That's just the truth. However, not all women do, a smaller minority do not mind so much about height.

    But I'm not going to lie to you and tell you that height isn't a factor. Women just seem to gravitate towards taller men.

    There's still hope though, not all women will turn down a date if you are shorter. You just have to keep looking.

    There's no two ways about you are slightly up against it. I think you know that or you wouldn't be here asking the question. Height is a factor in women looking for men but not exclusively. After all you really only want the one if your persuing a relationship. My friend Bill was 5ft 2 and he was the funniest guy to be around, genuinely nice and kind, very successful in business. He did go bankrupt but only because the printing industry changed dramatically with introduction of digital technology. But he changed direction and made money out of real estate. Bill had a beautiful wife and 3 daughters, things went wrong for them and they split and now he's with Carol. Carol is 5ft 11 and it makes no difference they love each unconditionally. I'm 5ft 9 and I love taller women. My current girlfriend friend is 5 9 1/2 which she likes to remind me of. I dated a lady that was 6 ft in her socks and a few others all over 5.7. Don't worry about the money work on your confidence. That's the most attractive thing you can have. Yes there's plenty of women that want a certain criteria of man, when they have it they'll want something else. Best thing you can do is hold your head up and walk tall...remember you's the man......

    Itís not your height thatís the issue.
    Itís your issue with your height that is.

    You have dated women and your height didnít bother them otherwise they wouldnít have dated you.
    They didnít end it because of your height , more like they ended it due to incompatibility which may have included a lack of self confidence.

    ??!

    Also I have dated men shorter than me and Iím average height for a girl.

    I have also dated taller than me.

    Confidence is more attractive than height.

    This is a great example of a self-fulfilling prophecy. It's along the same lines as women who state "All men want supermodels, that's why I can't get a date".

    I am also 5"2 and a half! I dated men who were my height. One is now married, the other has a long term girlfriend last I knew.

    Just to be clear- for me shorter was a preference - although not shorter than me. Shorter than average was my preference not me settling.

    Not with one guy -because he had a sunken living room LOL! Another really tall guy I know married a petite woman and was really creative so he designed a chair for her to stand on when he proposed.
