will be interesting to hear women opinion.
Thats how tall I am and it's never been an issue (although I have met some gals that wouldn't date me due to height, no biggie, next!). Yep, there are girls that won't date guys <6'0 or generally won't....which is their personal preference.

Don't let it bother you there are plenty of gals that don't care that much about height so just don't waste your time on people who just aren't your type or vice-versa.

I think that as we get older people generally mature and give ground on physical characteristics but some don't and again there is nothing wrong with that.

The only line I draw is that I don't want to hear someone (male or female) complain about the "dating pool" being poor when they've either filtered it down to a tiny sliver with tons of hard rules or to a type of person that is frankly unlikely to date them. Hey, if people want to be picky thats great but I don't want to hear then whine about their choices.

My wife and I are the same height, when she put on heels she calls me shorty, I promptly call her a 'cheater.'
my husband and I are the same height...when I put on heels..(which he loves) I am taller.

Height does play a factor because it just doesnt look right for the woman to be taller than the guy...unfortunately.

But if that was a major requirement for me I wouldve missed out on the best husband in the world.

I'm 5'2", so most guys are taller than I am even if they are considered short. My first boyfriend in college was about an inch taller than me, and he was a great guy.

I think like others have said, the OPs attitude is a self-fullfilling prophecy. If you go around thinking and acting like you're unworthy, then people will treat you that way.

My best friend was always really into guys that were tall (and I mean tall - like 6'3 and up). Which was odd (or so I thought anyways, as she is only 5'3). Long story short, she fell in love with and married a guy that is 5'5 and as far as she is concerned, the sun rises and sets on that boy's head!! He has a great personality and that's what she fell in love with.

Are you a woman? I'll tell you and every woman in the world that they don't know what they want. No woman has ever proven to me that they do.

You can say you want one thing, that doesn't mean you desire it. Too many women I know say they want a certain type of man but can't seem to stop dating/sleeping with the oppposite type time and time again.

You know why it takes a women so long to get ready before going out? It's not the makeup and hair and clothes...it's the fact they can't make a darn decision about anything in those areas because: THEY DONT KNOW WHAT THEY WANT

You know, when I was a teenager and in my early twenties I wouldn't have dated a shorter guy. Now I see how silly that was!
