If I had a girlfriend that was 4'9" I'd pick her up, give her a piggy back ride and take her to the kids clothing section of Target so we could get her some outfits. That's one heck of a short girl! 5'8" is fairly tall, but certainly not awkwardly tall for a girl as compared to say one that is 6'2" plus. Tall girls need love too, and my two long-term girlfriends were 6'2" and 5'11" but I've always thought it would be fun to date a shorter girl too. I'm 6'1" for whatever its worth.
