So I just got rejected by this girl I was really interested in and enjoying talking to for a few weeks because of my height (5'6-5'7). She doesn't strike me as a shallow person, and I've actually been having a really strong mutual connection with her. I'm really bummed out right now but I do want serious advice and opinions. It's really demoralizing that I can't fix it by working out, losing weight, taking care of myself or anything like that.
So I'm curious, girls, what's your opinion?

I'm about 5'6 and have dated guys who were 5'7-6'7.
She may not be attracted to you and height is just one component of it. A lot of people aren't attracted to each other, that doesn't mean nobody will be attracted to you. Girls get turned down for being the wrong height, breast size, body shape, skin tone, facial shape, etc. all the time...as guys are very visual and most have a certain "type" that they prefer. (Yes, I've had guys who thought I wasn't the right height, as I was "too tall" ... including some tall guys!)
It's a bummer, but you eventually meet someone who is attracted to you and you them and it works out. Also, the connection you felt wasn't as mutual as you believed, otherwise she'd be dating you. Sometimes, our attraction misleads us to interpret other people's interest. It happens to the best of us. I read a good analogy once that said rejection is often like getting turned down while trying to sell a sculpture to a painting gallery. It doesn't mean that they aren't both attractive art, it's that it's not the right market.0
