Yes, most guys do prefer shorter girls. I still can't understand why a guy who is 6'2" tall is going with a girl who is only FIVE FEET tall. He can't kiss her while standing up! He has to almost squat down and pick her up at the same time or get on his knees to kiss her. However, there are more short guys (It seems 5'9" (or 5'8" depending on the source) is considered as the 'average' height of guys. So, being 5'5" tall I'm considered as being short.) who like tall girls than you think. I love girls who are at least 5'8" tall. Looking up into a girl's eyes who is 5'10" tall, wrapping my arms around her and kissing her is the most awesome and exciting thing imaginable to me. Yes, I love tall girls. The problem being is that most tall girls will not consider dating a guy who is shorter than her. :-(
I'm 6'0" and my ideal height for a girl is between 6'2" and 6'4", so your height is perfect IMO. I love it when the girl is taller than me and we look like Mario and Princess Peach or Boris and Natasha.
I guess it's a bit too late to answer this, but I have to because personally I love girls taller than me. I think that many guys do but don't tell. I am 5' 9'' and I would have loved dating someone your height. I never had the chance to date a girl taller than me, but it would be awesome to kiss a girl your height! :). So, summing up, yes, there are many out there that like taller girls. And those who don't it's usually that they get intimidated by the social convention!
