So I was into this girl for a while now and I decided that I would make a move but I was hesitant to do this because she is slightly taller than I am. We have a lot of mutual friends so after she rejected me, I was able to get inside info from one of her friends and she told me that she rejected me mostly due to my height. My real question is if I should even bother trying with girls who are taller than I am. The only thing about myself that I'm insecure about is my height (I'm only 5'5)...so I tend to go for shorter women (though I've had women shorter than in the past say that I'm too short lol). But I'm not really hung up on height so I usually like to try anyways, but should I bother? Is height really that important? ...and how screwed am I...hah

I am going to be honest here, and will probably sound a bit shallow, but here goes...
I am 5'10" and I find it VERY hard to be attracted to shorter men. Now, this is not due to the fact that a short man is unattractive. It is due to the fact that when I am taller than a guy, it tends to make me feel less feminine. I also like to wear heels, so if he is already shorter, imagine how much I would tower over him in 5 inch heels!
However, if I truly liked a guy, and he was only like an inch or two shorter, I would probably be unphased by it. However, if he was 5 - 6 inches shorter than me, I would find it very intimidating.
But, like I said, it isn't because I don't find him attractive, it is more because it would make me feel insecure about how much I tower over him.2
