    Oh dear, being 5'5 I'm somewhat screwed with regards to height. Well at least I make up for it in other ways

    I'm just shy of 5ft 6. And I'm not really going to grow any higher.
    Forever alone, I guess.

    As a 5'10 guy, may I just say I hate 6' guys
    Do you also hate 6'1" guys?

    A comfortably taller height than myself ideally. Around 6', slightly less I guess. My ex was just a couple of inches taller than me (I'm 5'7'') and was so self conscious about his height that it gave ME a height complex and I've only just started being able to wear heels!

    Anything more than about an inch to 2 inches taller than me is fine.

    Thats pretty reasonable. It sucks hearing "at least 6"" or "6"2 when you are small - medium height. I mean, if I said for a girl "she must have X breast size" I would be pilloried as a sexist ********, because I guess you can't help your breast size. And you can't change your height.

    In fact, from a male perspective I can say breasts do not make a woman. Cleavage is obviously attractive, but its just a bonus. It does not hold any sway on how attractive a girl is
    Well girls say that, and that'd be an ideal but the reality is that no gilr is actually going to reject a guy that she otherwise finds really attractive and really likes just because he isn't 6 foot.

    The fact is, that being tall is generally considered something that is attractive on guys, so girls will like it, but it's not exactly going to be a deal breaker and being short doesn't make anyone less attractive really.

    I'm 5'2" my current bf is 5'9" ish my exes have been 5'6" and 5'8" I have no desire to wear heels so even short guys are taller than me.
    I would probably date a guy shorter than me but I've not met many lol

    You do realise that there are many men out there with dwarfism and by promoting this attitude you are promoting discrimination. You're also saying that the majority of them are unattractive, horrible people.

    And that is abhorrent.
    She didn't say they were horrible people, merely less attractive. I think that's relatively reasonable, though unfortunate.

    I'm 5'2", so anything from 5'5"/5'6" upwards would be fine, since if I wear heels i'm still not taller than them (I very rarely wear very high heels as I can't walk in them )

    Sadly you're not alone in you're condescending attitude towards short Men. We get it, ladies love tall men. Were inferior. Great, now **** off and take your prejudices with you
    I'm a short man. Well, relatively short. We're not inferior, at least not in a general sense. I don't think it's reasonable when women stipulate that they'd 'never go for anyone below this height' or 'above that height', but I think expressing a preference is perfectly fine.
