I think a lot of tall guys like their girls short, it's more of a problem if the guys not tall enough or the girls not short enough (Tall girls and short boys). I'm 5'8 but I'd prefer someone who's average to short (5'3-5'5) which is slightly shorter than me. I can make exceptions though, if they were shorter we'd be cuter as a couple. If they were taller my kids might have a chance to be tall and won't have that struggle. I don't let my preferences get in the way.
I'm 5'5 and would date a woman who is 5'0, not problemo.
