no there isn't, height is just one of those thins that cannot be traded for something else you know what I mean? As shallow as it sounds men would rarely date a woman who is obese, the oppossite its true as well though, anyhow that is how it is.
To me it seems that women see short men as not manly enough, its like they are dating a high school kid when they see one. Or a short man cannot protect them, from the evil creeps that crow over in the bars. I am 5'6 and in my experience, I have never had a girlfriend and my short friends have rarely had a girlfriend, they have had probably like 2 or so, but as far as getting as many dates, one night stands and girlfriends, they rarely get as many as tall guys. I haven't dated somebody in a veery long time, as well. I mean when do you see a short guy with a lot of girls dancing in a club? NEVER! its always the tall men dancing with girls.
And if you tell me because I am not confident enough, I can tell you that I have los track of how many women I have tried to talk to, or how many I have tried to get a date with, I haven't got a date yet. One girl told me that I wasn't tall enought to dance with her in a club, when I invited her to dance. I play a lot of soccer, so I am not obese and I am in very good shape.
I keep trying and I try not to feel left down because of it, I unfortunately was born like that and I cannot do anything about it, so I try the best with what I have.
