    Height has lots of advantages. It is associated with intelligence, education, and (IIRC) inversely with mortality.

    No offense to any short people, but I don't know why anyone would find height unattractive in a girl (unless she was taller than them, of course)

    I dig tall girls but that's slightly tall for maybe if I grow 2-3 inches and become 6ft4/6ft5 maybe than. I prefer 5ft6+. Anything below is like a kid for me. I like averagely tall women. Between 5ft7 and 5ft10

    It is true from all the studies I have skimmed through looked at (although naturally you have to correct for gender, race and other things).

    But look at it this way: if height is strongly correlated to loads of good things, then wouldn't it look worse on me if I were tall, but also really stupid and morbidly obese, for example?

    I am very short, so it is nearly irrelevant whether or not I like a tall girl in general
    But a little bit taller than me, I tend to still feel attraction, get nothing past a certain point though

    Those correlations are well established facts - there has been a lot of research into it. Not that it is necessarily caused by the height - "correlation does not imply causation".

    Here's an accessible source for you - I don't generally like posting links to dubious pop-science sites like IFLS, but I doubt you'll be interested in psychology journals

    I'd've thought the notion "correlation does not equal causation" would have sunk in for everyone the amount of times it is said. I'm pretty sure I've heard the opposite with regards to mortality, a quick google yields a couple of articles on it e.g. http://www.slate.com/articles/health...s_to_your.html (this also addresses the misconceptions that height somehow makes you smart or educated)

    edit: Ah to be fair you just addressed that
