I prefer when girls are shorter than me; though I also like it when they are close to my height.
The thing about my height is that I'm commonly the tallest person in the room, which you probably feel the same frequently - I'm 6'2 - .. I suppose it would be kind of awkward to date someone taller than me, with no due offense. (Edit: I would like to add that within 2 inches isn't THAT much of a difference to my height, so it's less intimidating than someone who is almost 6'7 or so)
The ways you could overcome that dealbreaker is in your personality and appearance; obviously you have an understanding of attractive qualities (Humor / Figure / etc).. If you are worried about it you can always add to, or otherwise "improve, either your appearance and (or) your personality.
I do not find height to be much of an issue for me. I find that taller woman have the most kindred spirits opposed to shorter people who I often find to be scornful and a bit uncalled for at times. But of course this is just my experience with people of the sorts and should not be taken as seriously as the fact that tall people can reach that glass in the top shelf. =P
i'm 6'4" and don't really have a height pref that I'm AWARE of . . . but somehow always end up with women closer to the 5'2'' range. but don't worry . . . while some guys might be intimidated by your height . . . I'm sure there are a LOT who will love it. it's special and unique. and he gets to be a gentleman and tell you "duck" a lot. ;)
5,11 here..I LOVE tall girls..anything below the height of 5,7 is too short for me and a major turn off..but tall girls with silky smooth long legs is just nice..even taller than me, I don't care..it's sexy
