    No not really, short girls tend to like really tall guys. Tall girls generally prefer guys to be a bit taller than them. So 5'4" guys don't really come into the equation.
    So in summary:

    Short & Average men lose comprehensively

    Tall men win

    Short, Average and Tall women win.

    Oh, wait. Figured it out - peer pressure. Obviously if they voted one of the less popular options, they'd be classed as uncool.
    Yeah, but how would they even know? I went for 5'11" :awesome:

    They just know, Clements, alright? They just know. It's like when you're picking lottery numbers, you just know.

    Also, I'm too tall for you. This makes me want to cut myself. :emo:

    Just say you're 6' 2" and they'll immediately think, "Wow! He's the perfect height for the TSR female populace! MUST BONE".
    Them bone me?
    I'm grateful for the attention, but not really into that sort of stuff :O

    Yeah, women would bone you with their pelvic bone. But if you're not into that, I guess guys could offer you a much meatier substitute.

    That's unfortunate. I'm only small :emo: How tall are you? I'm guessing over 6'2"

    5'8''. I'm ever so slightly joking. "Small but perfectly formed" is how I would describe myself :cool:

    And don't ever, ever suggest that I go into banking.

    6' 2". A good thing, apparently. How 'small' are you?

    I'm 5'11" and should grow another inch or so until I reach maximum because both my brother and dad are 6'1".

    Just thought I'd add that in to make you feel bad :awesome:

    at least it'll make hanging yourself easier, a tall person might not have enough room to drop far enough to break their neck!

    I don't have a lower limit or any limits in general. :teeth: And before anybody asks, I draw the line at scat. :naughty:

    It's bad enough that my younger brother is now getting taller than me. He stills weighs two stone less than me though and would be blown away by a stiff breeze so I'm not exactly jealous of him.

    Its depressing for me and im 6 foot 7, i feel i've been classified "giant".
    How is it depressing?! :confused:
    I'd LOVE a 6'7 guy!

    (Original post by anoif_)
    Well I'm 5ft 11 and 6ft 7 wouldn't put me off, it would make me feel "protected" and more girly, because sometimes being tall = masculine. Which isn't good for a girl :no:
    I wouldn't worry
    This!

    Problem is very few people do, therefore bringing down the spectrum

    Only in Norway, or the Netherlands would 5'8 be considered in any sense short, most women are around 5"5.

    You could always wear lifts, win their heart and when your true height is eventually revealed it will be too late.

    It's definitely below the UK average of about 5'10'', and though I know I'm still taller than most women most people still think of me as a short person. It doesn't really fuss me though, in any case. I don't think it's my height that's holding women back from being interested in me - there are plenty of far worse things that do that!
