I know that most girls prefer short guys but they way a lot of people talk on here makes it sound like most girls won't date short guys at all. My boyfriend is pretty short himself, 5'6" and as far as I know he hasn't really had any trouble dating. It makes me wonder whether it's because girls don't like to date short guys or if it's for another reason, maybe due to insecurities that some short guys could have?
So here are my questions...
If you're a guy who's 5'7" or under, have you seemed to have a harder time getting dates than guys of average height or taller? Have any girls every directly told you that they wouldn't date you because of your height? Do you feel insecure about your height?
And ladies, is a guy being short a deal breaker for you? How much does height matter?

The first statement says it all "I know that most girls prefer TALL guys..." Thus, you can conclude that tall guys will have more of a selection when it comes to potential partners than a short guy would have. Therefore, you can make at least some conclusion and say dating is a little harder for someone shorter in height.
I don't think its mainly the insecurities "some short guys may have" because they are a direct result from their experiences with women themselves, but rather both the women herself and wanting to feel more feminine (as a result saying she won't date a shorter guy) and the man wanting to feel more like one and trying to fit her height preferences.
I know girls (usually taller than average) who say they won't date a man unless he's above x inches tall. Conversely, when I ask most will say because they "want to feel protected" (from what?), a guy should be more dominant, social factors or some other reason they can't really explain.
I used to really like my height, until I found out it was only classified as average to most girls. I'm still okay with it, though I don't really pay attention to it.0
