I'm 5'7 so kinda tall for a girl, if you were me would you date a guy that's around 5'5-5'6?

I would ignore anyone who calls you superficial. It's not about being superficial, it's about being physically attracted to someone, which you really can't control (and if they're going to refute that, they might as well tell gay men that they should be fine dating women). I'm 5'8" and height is a big issue for me: if a guy is shorter than me, I'm just not attracted to him. It's not a fetish, it's a desire to feel feminine (i.e. small, delicate, and in the care of someone much stronger than you). Since physical intimacy is a major part of a relationship (I might argue it's what separates a friend from a more-than-friend), it's a deal breaker if there's no physical chemistry. When people say "there's a lot more to dating than that," meaning height, I agree that there is; just because a guy is tall doesn't make him date material. But when they say that they mean that you should look for things "that matter," like his personality. However, there are totally guys who are tall and have great personalities, so I wouldn't "short" yourself :p1
