For the record, I'm 6', which is slightly above average height in my country (United States). I don't really have a dog in this fight, but I am curious why do you think women (generally) find taller men more attractive.
I don't wish to entertain that height isn't an issue. All opinions are welcome, but that's a discussion for another question I suppose. Generally speaking, polls tend to indicate that women do tend to prefer taller men over shorter ones. If you want to debate that, perhaps you could consider asking your own question.

I know this is going to be a very unpopular opinion.
I think this goes to the base instinct in every woman, whether they admit it or not. The man is supposed to be physically taller, bigger, more muscular than the woman for a variety of reasons and this instinct dwells in the woman's mind even if she is unaware of it.
At the BASE of this is the BELIEF down in the woman's primitive back of the mind that:
*Taller men equals increased protection for family
*Taller men tend to mean strong genes to pass on to children
*Taller men equals health and vigor
This doesn't mean it is something a woman thinks about, it is just there in the background of her thoughts regarding men and attraction.
In today's world of course, women are taller in general and height means less in terms of slaying a sabre tooth cat. For me it comes down to point #1, I like to feel protected by a man. The only way I personally can feel protected is if he is at the very least my own height, but I prefer guys two inches and more over me. I have tried to date guys smaller than me, and I just do not stay attracted to them very long. I am always saying though, it isn't his fault for being shorter, it is MINE for being tall for a girl.
Bottom line is, let whoever date whoever. Their is no use shaming a girl for her desire to date a tall guy any more than there is to shaming a guy who won't date a heavyset girl. It is all in what you find attractive. Don't get mad at us, just go find someone who will be attracted to you.0
