I had a friend who was pretty short, and still is, even his girlfriend is taller (just a bit) than him. She really hot, and he has been getting lots of girls during all his life. Being short is the stupidest excuse a guy could give for not getting any.
Height is by far the most desired trait women look for in men, so I would say it is fair to say that. Most women I know would say they would never consider a shorter guy as a dating material, some went as far as calling the idea disgusting.
