I can't even get 5'5 girls and under to look at me, forget it if she is even moderately attractive. Hell even 4'11 girls want a guy that is like 6'3.
Example: The girl I had a huge crush on a year ago has a picture of her and her boyfriend on Facebook. The girl is like 5'6 and he is a head and a half taller than her! She wouldn't give me time of day but likes this douche? Point proven.
So what are us vertically challenged guys supposed to do? Settling for ugly girls is NOT an option and never will be.

5'8 is average male height in the US - which has the tallest people I believe - don't quote me on the second part :P
Anyway - I'm an Amazon so I like over 6 foot guys, but if I was 5'6 I'd think every guy is tall so.
I'm pretty sure her getting with him, had more to do with personality and her personal attraction factor ( not including height,) and how well they get along, then just focused around height.
The reason you think your height is such a draw back is because your really insecure about it - 9 x outta 10 there is a bunch of other factors interfering with you dating girls from personality flaws in you, personality flaws in her, non - mutual connecting etc etc.
Don't beat yourself up.
My rehabilitation trainer is only 5'6 - almost 5'7 and he is fine as hell. Height isn't an instant deal breaker believe it or not.
But honestly I do always hear girls go " He's short though : \"
Oh wait - but all the girls I hear it from are Amazons like me so what we consider " short " is actually normal.
Don't let it get to ya - there are couples of all heights and sizes.
You can do one of 2 things:
Accept that your that height and will always be that height - but don't let it hold you back from being you and finding a girl -
You can get a terribly painful leg operation in which they break your shins and shove metal rods in them to make you an inch or 2 taller.
Option one seems best - and less painful.
Just sayin lol :P
