Why do girls think I'm shorter than I am?
It's really annoying because I'm 5'8 and girls think I'm short. I know it's definitely not tall, but still it's NOT short... There is this one girl that is literally like 4'11 and she was surprised when she heard me say I was 5'8. Why does this happen and girls obsess so much over height? ****

5'8 - 5'11 is the average for American dudes I believe.
So your average height.
But I'm an amazon coming in at 5' 9, 6'2 in heels so, you'd be short to me - I'm tall for a girl though so, nothing to fret about really.
I guess height is equated with intimidation which is equated with the male fundamental icon of strength. So bigger guys just seem more appealing. Emphasis on seem.
But a man is a man - you come in a variety of shapes and sizes so.

I don't know why girls think you are short 5'8 isn't that short it's average.
I Find that really tall guys 6+ is just really cute ( guys shorter than that are too), I think the height makes me see them differently, I don't know. Wear, high shoes with really long pants so they don't look like heels, but you can still be tall. :)

Well, that's because most girls are led to believe they should only be with taller guys, and think there are an unlimited supply of us. It is silly. I'm 6'1", but most guys in the United States aren't that tall. I can't date all the girls out there, nor can any other tall guy. I do have some shorter male friends that are good with women though, and they generally are very funny or have something else which helps women overlook the fact that they are shorter. Hang in there man!
