    My dad is 5'6, yeah he is short in this country. Close to average back in India, my mum chose his looks, intelligence and humour over his height lol
    Dw OP, it's not unattractive
    But would you date him.

    5'6 is considered short for men in todays standards by many. However it's not so short where you'll notice a considerable amount in life. I'm 5'8/9 and although thats considered short I don't think its hindered me much. Unless I liked a girl whos taller than me then it can be a sort of "crap if only I was taller" thing. However now that I'm older I'd say I dont even notice my own height anymore in the sense that it doesn't bother me at all.

    Youll honestly stop caring about it when you're older.

    Date my dad? :toofunny:
    Nahh, not into that Freudian concept.

    Soz, you mean OP yes? If I liked him yeah, why not. Height isn't an issue for little me (I'm 5'1, everyone is sooo much taller)

    same height as I am and I barely consider myself average height for a girl so yeah I guess 5'6 is pretty short for a guy. I reckon if you were any shorter though then that would REALLY suck. 5'6 still seems like a respectable short guy height
