Is it common for girls to reject a guy based on height eventough he's taller?

Anonymous
Something that happened to me back in highschool was that my crush, who is 5'7, rejected me (I am 5'9), and the reason being I was too short for her.
I was 17 then, I am 21 now and almost done with college but it still bothers the hell out of me to this day. I still cannot grasp why I wasent tall enough for her when I was in fact taller. And I wasent even a scrawny guy so that she would feel big next to me, I was pretty buff and athletic, so I dont get it.

My question is should I keep expecting this? That is if I ask out a girl that is close to my height, in the 5'7,5'8 range, should I expect to be turned down?
Am I to most girls in that height range too short, eventough I am taller?
