It matters to me even though it probably shouldn't cause I'm short too (5'0). I just have a thing for tall guys. I know it's not necessarily true but I just feel like tall guys can take care of you or protect you more than a short guy could (once again, I know that that's not really the case but that's just how I feel). All that said I have found shorter guys attractive but those guys tend to be incredibly hot kinda making up for them being short. Generally I'm most attracted to guys that are at least a head taller than me but not so tall that I feel like I need a step stool to kiss them so that's generally guys between 5'10 and 6'3, obviously if someone's not between those heights I wouldn't completely write them off but that's just my personal preference
Not important to me but I'm only a wee shorty myself at 5 ft 2. I have found plenty of short guys attractive. I would understand it if a taller girl only wanted to go out with a tall guy though. Don't let it get you down though since there isn't much you can do about it! Be confident and no one will notice your height!
well, my girlfriend's 5 9, and I'm 5 4. To be honest, yes, it did take some getting used to, and yes, there were points where we both wished I were a little taller (lol more than a little). However, as our relationship grew stronger, height wasn't much of an issue anymore and we just looked past it. I'm not saying she likes short guys now, I'm just saying she loves me for who I am.
So, to answer your question, at first, it might be a turn off, but then when you find a girl who will look past it, as your relationship progresses it will become less and less of an issue. :)
i don't know I think there is definitely a correlation between height of guys and the girls they get, but its not true for everyone. I honestly think that like 75% of getting girls is self confidence. If you are 5'5 but you are completely self confident, than the women will come to you, no worries. But if you are 6'3 and you're a shy awkward dude, no girl is going to be attracted to that.
