Just to show how shallow most of women really are, even when they flirt with their men saying things like ohh how I love you and how your soul astonishes me, all BS, women are visual enough that they want a taller partner, I've had a bad time with an ex saying to me: I'm going to look taller than you in heels, so don't come to my graduate party.
Listen, be confident, and know that love can't be controlled, girls don't really know when it's going to happen to them, their height preference is just an instinctual preference that can get crushed by many other qualities you'd have, prove your body, puff up. And remember that women usually end up with the shortest guy they knew! I heard a short guy once saying: I'm so lucky, I have a chance being with someone's taller more than any guy around! :P it's really fun, and you should also be funny. For the height part, the average heigh for girls in the world is more like 5'3'' or 5'1'', and don't listen to that anony b*tch, take her said points as informative, and work on those things she said, just so you know how some of their brains work.
