Is it because he is constantly being told girls want tall men (even short ones?) or just something that has been implanted in his head over and over again? He never had any problems with it before, in fact he really never even thought about this issue until it was brought to his attention
The world wide average for a mans height is just under 5'9 give or take depending on which study you use. How could it be possible that a guy who is around 5'10 and a 1/2 start to believe he is to short and hate his height?

Ah a question addressed specifically to my problems. I am 5'11" and most girls I seem to meet still consider that too short. I have a few female friends and they ALL are hunting for a guy who is over 6' maybe even 6'3" or they won't talk to him. My roommate is 6' 4" and girls that are all over him complain how hard it is to find a guy that is average height, lol. These girls are usually 5'6" to 5'9".
So there ya go. 5'11" isn't enough for most girls. So guys are self-conscious about it.2
