hi. I have read most guys prefer girls 5'2-5'8 So I felt self conscious. Would you date with a girl only 5'1 or scare away from such height difference? Because I am at least 7" shorter than average guy.
I *prefer* to date petite girls - always have, since Jr High. While I have dated girls of all sizes and shapes, including one girl who was 5'11" (and I'm 5'10"), the AVERAGE height of the girls I've been with is probably 5'2"-5'3", because probably 8-10 of them have been 5' or less.
Someone was saying that she was Nordic (Sweden I think) and that no one liked short girls over there. I told her to come here, and guy would be lining up for her. The same is true for you.
I'm sure an inch wouldn't make a difference to them :) I'm 5'2" and it's really not that big of a deal :) Guys like girls not only for their appearances but also because of their personalities. Don't worry about it because guys have different types and you'll find someone who likes you for you :)
I'm 6'2", and have dated a girl who was 4'11" before. It was different, but height shouldn't really matter. People don't care about a couple inches here or there. You'll find someone who is right for you.
