    You arent really going to change your height though, ynless you have an operation, take a box with you everywhere or go around on stilts. You arent losing out because you are 5'9" as that's hardly a dwarf.

    Perhaps you need to work on your self confidence and girls notice that way more than any height issues. Focus on the real issue.

    I'm 5 foot and 1 inch and a half.

    That does not matter, and if you don't have anyone or haven't had anyone in a while than its because its not the right time, it has nothing to do with your height but like someone said, if you are looking insecure girls are going to notice that, just embrace it

    5ft9 is ideal to me. Not too short but not so tall that you end up resembling a daddy long legs. Guys who are 6 ft odd often tend to look a little out of proportion, either long legged and gangly or long backed.
