Hello everyone. So recently I read a poll that 80% of women wouldn't even consider dating a man under 6 feet tall. This seems silly to me, since that would rule out 80% of the male population!
My question to you ladies is this: would YOU consider dating a man that was 5'9" (I range anywhere from 5'9" to 5'10" throughout the day and depending on my posture) like me? Please, only honest answers, even if brutally honest. To be truthful, I stand at 5'11" with a good pair of boots, and if I head to any public place I can pretty much see the top of almost everyone's heads (I live in southeastern Ohio). I kind of fell like 6 foot is a magical number for women, and that most girls under 5'7" can't tell the difference between a man who's 5'9" and 6'0" unless they're lined up next to each other, I know I have trouble distinguishing heights between folks and I have a better vantage point than most women.

I'm 5'10" and have no problem. An inch difference between us isn't noticeable at all. If you focus on all the guys out there who are 6 feet or taller, then you're just going to work yourself up into some uncontrollable anxious thoughts.
I don't consider myself short and I don't see why you should either, just because you heard some girl or girls somewhere say that they only like 6+ feet. You mention that girls who are shorter won't be able to tell the difference between the two and that you "have a better vantage point than most women" anyway.
Firstly, you're not standing on a mountain lol. You're merely a few INCHES taller than most girls. That, to me, isn't some "better vantage point". Second, it's not about "vantage points", it's a matter of looking at someone and seeing how tall they are. Third, that is what we in the IT field call a "justification". It seems this height issue has you concerned enough that you're trying to downplay the idea of height entirely. That is why I'm answering this way: stop appeasing your own insecurities. Fighting to have an extra 2 inches with a different pair of shoes is more than likely screaming out to the people around you that YOU'RE the one with the height issue.
Some girls genuinely do like tall guys and won't be attracted to you. That's life man, get over it. Not everyone you come across is going to be ready to jump your bones. So if you run across a girl that isn't attracted to you because of your height, do you know what you do? Don't trouble yourself with trying to change her mind on height because you have a "better vantage point" about height.
It's all about how you carry yourself, my friend. If you let petty stuff like this trouble you, don't be surprised when nobody wants to be around you as a romantic partner.2
