    Really don't think this supposedly positive correlation means anything though. I think you make a bigger deal of your height than you need to. I mean, you don't look bad at all. You could just be tall and straight up ugly, which would be far worse.
    I think it's just because if you get optimal nutrition growing up you're likely to "max out" your genes, to put it crudely, so you'll reach your "peak" heights and IQ. And since intelligence and height are desirable on a biological level, it makes sense that tall people and smart people would often have ended up together historically. But I'm not a geneticist lol. Hmm being truly ugly probably would be worse, but I really don't think facial aesthetics are that significant to women. I've intermittently made a deal of my height, but I'm more positive than many - plenty of guys around my height or even a bit taller pretend that for that reason they are destined to be forever alone, and act like there's nothing they can do to improve their chances. I guess if I didn't have my own counterexample I might join them in the pessimism, so I can't really judge their outlook.

    5'7" - it's not really that tall but I'm usually one of the tallest if not the tallest in a group of girls since they're usually a few inches off me. I like my height, tall enough but not too much.

    I believe facial aesthetics are the most important thing to women tbh, at least the 'better' ones (can't be bothered to explain exactly what I mean by that lol).
    As you've said you've got your own counterexample. The fact that you've had a girlfriend once is a massive positive. That means your height most likely isn't particularly important relationship-wise. Even if it is then you can conclude you have some other very big positive that outweighs that. I mean if it was for something more practical like playing sports (like tennis or basketball or something else that requires good height) I would agree that it's quite limiting.

    Regardless, being able to interact with other human beings is more important than being a decent height, so I'm still screwed lol.

    Better women or better aesthetics? :beard:
    You've crushed my basketball dreams...but yeah I'm not too down on myself in this regard, and besides I find myself far more attracted to girls shorter than me anyway.
    I mean you don't really seem at all bad at interacting with people. In any case, it's something improvable and very variable (I tend to find with some people, even if they get on well with others/aren't awkward themselves, I just never feel comfortable, with others I can interact with ease, in some circles I can be gregarious, in others a borderline mute).

    Better women. Yeah I always sucked at basketball lol.
    I think in some situations I come off as a bit more normal socially than I should. Like you and a couple of others in chess were a lot more easy to interact with than most people. So yeah it is variable for me too, but the main problem is really just my 'allergy' to socialising and meeting new people, simply do not want to do it but still want many of the benefits of having friends...

    5 FT 7 INS. I was actually the shortest female dancer at the Moulin Rouge and was lucky to get in. I wouldn't get in nowadays; minimum height for their female dancers is 5FT 9 INS.
