Because it is genetically phenotypically advantageous to be tall, more attractive to females so more likely to pass on genes, also women feel better protected.
Not tryna be a savage though

5'8 is just slightly under average, I'm 5'7 and people don't really consider me "short". Sure I'm on the shorter side, but it's not that significant tbh. Also, you're average/above average in many places in the world so bare in mind people's perception of short differs a lot (in Holland you are deffo short, but in some Asian countries you may even be tall.)

It's relative to where you live. If most people around you are taller than you then you are short.

Here's the truth

5'8 is not short, but women do like taller guys, around 6 foot + a few inches

I am about 5 foot 7/8 and I am fine with my height. I am 18 so might have an inch or so to grow. Might hit average for UK male!

Immigrants (mainly Asians) are shorter - pretty sure they pull it down

From a female perspective, I wouldn't consider 5"8' for a male short, more average (and I'm 5"7').

I'm imagining he said that because the general view is women find tall men more attractive, but a) I know women who prefer shorter guys, even and b) for most women, I'd say there are things they care about much more than a thing like height. :lol:

I'm not an expert, but I heard people are getting taller as the generations go on. Which could be down to things like us consuming more food or the things within our food, maybe?
