To start off, I'm a pretty short guy, somewhere between 5'7''-5'8''.
I've been talking with this girl in one of my uni classes and actually have a date set up this Saturday.
She is on the taller side 5'9'' or 5'10'', and we were talking about height preferences one day. She said she usually prefers taller guys (Makes sense since she is tall herself), and I made a joke about my being short.
She responded in saying she she didn't realize I was that short and thought I was taller, so I was just curious if confidence and such would make such things less apparent? Because I thought it was pretty apparent hahaha.
I wasn't sure if it was that, or the fact that she is pretty skinny, and I'm quiet a bit larger than her, giving the illusion I'm tall?
I was just curious, as I always thought women seemed to notice height pretty quickly as most women like taller guys.

they're all short guys. But you know what? They were all awesome with the ladies (and they were all players before they became famous.)
In fact, the reason they could attract girls was because of their strong inner attitude.
There are a couple things you can do. Wearing boots right now will subtly add 2 or 3 inches to your height.
Also, when you dress, wear vertical stripes and tight clothes. That will make you look SLENDER, which will make you appear taller.
If you've got muscles, seems like you do, it helps A LOT, not only with your physical appearance, but also with your confidence levels, strong inner attitude, and poise. So get in the gym.
When you're muscular and you're a short guy, you become like a pit bull. And by the way, I'd like you to experiment with that.. do not always be the nice guy who's polite. For the next few months, try to let your "inner badass" come out a bit when you're with girls.
Do the affirmation, "I'm becoming like the pitbull who can dominate the bigger dogs."
Once you start feeling more and more confident in a few weeks, change your affirmation to, "I AM like the pitbull who can dominate bigger dogs."
I've noticed that a lot of short guys develop a VERY strong presence by having cultivated that inner badass.
Now, I'm not saying you should become a jerk... but just try to balance out that inner nice guy.
Next thing to do long term is to GIVE UP any approval-seeking. Who cares what women think of you? Go through life doing what you want and being who you are. (That is so key by the way... those guys I list above were players exactly because they went through life doing what they wanted and being true to who they were.)
You see, short guys who are badasses really have a bit of an advantage. Because of their stature, they automatically are able to have more rapport with chicks (who tend to be short themselves) than the guys who are beanpoles. And when you add to that a bit of a "badboy" element, it makes chicks dripping wet with attraction.
The bottom line is this: only if YOU feel uncomfortable with your height will it affect you with the girls. If you feel completely comfortable with your height, then they will too.
By the way, when it comes to tall guys, what women find attractive about them isn't their height. It's their dominance. If you have a tight sense of inner confidence and project a personality that sucks them in, height will be the furthest thing from their minds.
So to sum up, be true to yourself, take risks in life, cultivate your inner badass, and stop caring about anyone's approval. And hit the gym ASAP. And do the fashion things I said.
Then you'll attract girls without worrying about irrelevant things like height. But there's LOTS more that you can do, I'd recommend reading this book: link It helped me alot, I'm 5'8, and have dated girls 6'1.1
