Well from a dating perspective is 5'8 short for a guy ?
Most Helpful Girl
I think the average male height in the US is 5'10" so technically it is considered short. But does that mean you're too short to date? Absolutely not! My boyfriend is only 5'6" I'd actually rather have a short guy than a super tall guy. I love my boyfriends height because we fit together nicely when we cuddle and I don't have to strain my neck to kiss him lol. I think with most girls as long as the guy is taller than she is, that's all that matters. And most girls are definitely shorter than 5'8"0
