Now I have no problem with people having SOME standards but the being able to wear heels (and still be shorter) or nothing as in "too short to date because ill be wearing heels", seems kinda harsh.
My girlfriend is taller than me when she wears heels and it's never bothered either of us, it just intrigues me as to why SOME girls would turn down a potentially good relationship for being able to wear heels.
Is it an easy way of saying he's too short or what? Thoughts?

I think it's that some people tend to care way too much about gender expectations.
In general, men are larger than women (but of course, there's overlap between them). Men are expected to be larger, taller, and stronger. Women are expected to be smaller and weaker.
So, when the girl is taller than the guy, she either a) feels insecure because it makes her feel less feminine; or b) feels like the guy is less masculine.
High heels can either make a girl taller than her boyfriend if she's shorter, or make her even more taller than him if she's already taller than her.
Additionally, if a girl is wearing high heels, it's probably because they're out in public... so likely, she's worried about how other people will view her and her boyfriend as a couple if she's taller than him.
But yeah, seems pretty silly and shallow to me to reject someone just because you'd be taller than him in heels.
