But if I started dating a girl and she would tell me something like she only dates guys that are at least 5'7 (I'm 5'9 myself), even tough I meet her height requirement I would be really turned off by that. I would just have fun with her a few times and stop seeing her.
The reason is that, growing up I was always really short and my height is my biggest insecurity so I could not be with a girl who I know puts an importance to it, even if I make the cut. It just rubs me the wrong way.

I think it's a little silly yes. I'm only 5'4" myself - while I understand that women prefer guys taller than themselves and I think they're entitled to that, I know how annoying it is at the same time. But for me to hold that against them when for example I wouldn't date a girl who was overweight would be hypocritical. If anything the ones that annoy me most are those who have those standards but then want to criticise others because they have standards that they don't fit, e. g.

It's not judging a person by their height, it's their preference of height - that's a big difference.
I prefer taller males than myself but I also don't let it dictate on who I will and won't date. A girl may say she won't date guys who are shorter than 5"7" but if the truth came right down to it, they'll give a guy a chance if they click and she likes them for them.
