Listen bro, this one took me a while to get. It's true women prefer a man to be taller than them. Some even say that they never would be with a shorter guy. But you know what? What they say isn't always what they really want. I'm a short guy and my girls have always been taller. I don't have much money so you can rule that out. Be thankful that women aren't as physically shallow as men.
If the guy has other attractive qualities to make up for the height.
