Height most certainly does matter to women, but does it knock him a down a couple of notches?

yes3THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
5'8 really isn't that short. In fact, comparatively, you're TALL! I'm only 5 foot, you know :) So no, I wouldn't find you unattractive because of your height. Don't worry about it, everything'll be good :)
I'm 5'0. Do you really think I consider 5'8 to be a bad height? I have never heard so much bologna about height before until I joined GAG. I didn't even known it was an issue. The funny thing is, I only hear about it from guys. It's the guys saying girls want this or that. It would be nice if you people would stop telling me what I want.
It really depends on how you handle yourself. If you carry yourself with confidence, girls won't even notice your height. :)
Plus, if you were with a girl, your height most likely wouldn't make a difference. If she likes you, she likes you. :)
Not at all. I mean I am like 5'2" so it's a good height. My boyfriend is like 6' though...But 5'8" is a very ideal height. Not unnatractive at all.
No way I dated a guy shorter than me and his personality took away from the height difference, I hardly ever noticed. I'm 5'7'', and he was an inch or two shorter
If I can Wear my heels, and you still be at least my height, it's fine. Things get weird when the guys shorter. I'm 5'4 so I would say you're fine!
It wouldn't bother me much, but it would be somewhat of a physical flaw.
A 5'8" guy would be eight inches taller than me, but I personally prefer big guys.
So I'd look at him and think "well, he's cute, but he's not all that big..."
In the long run, though, it wouldn't effect my opinion of him (i.e. if I liked him, I wouldn't refuse to date him just because he wasn't a giant).
Depends on how tall you are? If you wear heels? etc. I am 5'2 so 5'8 is fine with me.
Unfornately many (not all but a lot) of women height is a deal breaker in attraction to a guy! 5 foot 8 might be about the border line for most unless they're a super model but even then it can still be a deal break.
Hmm. I think that if a girl likes you enough she wouldn't mind it. I'm personally 6ft tall so yea, I was 5'8 in like 7th grade.
I'm only 5'7 and still have dated 4 files in my life.
I'm 5'8 as well and my girl is 4'10.5 and to her she feels as if I was 6'2 so I'd say your great
I’m 5’8 and I’ve dated a bunch of girls that were 5’10 so it’s fine
Notice how the asker is going out his way to stress that 5'8 is short. Yeah maybe women are naturally drawn to a guy a little taller but guess what? We as guys think that our ideal woman is a model with double D's. When in fact the more you date the more you realize that measurables are not as important as you think. I'm 5'8 and turn heads everywhere I go because I enjoy life and try to enjoy the interactions I have with people. believe me dude, get out of your head and if a girl says your to short, chances are her personality sucks because she's shallow and not very open minded
I'm 5'7" and I am currently dating a girl who's around 5'4" or so. Any girl who's like 5'2" and wants at least 6'0" deserves it, but I look down on them with condescendence and assume stupidity and an irrational clinging to an unjustified ideal. Meaning, their "image of femininity" is overriding their common sense, and I wouldn't want to be with people like that anyways. :)
