Boyfriend Measures Up in Every Way Except Height
Only around quarter of guys are genuinely 6ft or above anyway so that leaves her dating pool a bit small.

Dating as a short man: The highs and lows
Guys who were a lot taller were always the most exciting, since I rarely had the opportunity to feel short before. But, sometimes people do. In fact, some short guys just assume they have no chance with a taller girl, even if all of their interests align. Some people may even view a taller woman or a shorter man as a red flag.

Study: Exploring Height’s Impact on Self-Perception, Dating, and Work
Whether you admit it or not, everyone has their own dating preferences. For instance, some people prefer to date non-smokers to go along with their own smoke-free lifestyle. Some want a dog-loving partner so that one day, they can adopt a little pup together. And some have preferences for height.

Have you ever wished that you were just a little bit taller? We recently surveyed over 1, people with a series of height-centric questions and were able to confirm some long-held beliefs about height, among them being the idea that many men and women would prefer to be a different height. As it turns out, taller people especially men tend to feel more confident about themselves. Of the male respondents who claim to be taller than most of their friends, almost 7 in 10 felt that they were desirable to potential sexual partners compared to just 54 percent of male respondents who claimed to be the same height as their friends and less than 52 percent of males who claimed to be shorter than their friends.
On the whole, taller respondents were more confident in their own appearance, more confident around potential partners, and more satisfied with their sex lives than their average and short male counterparts. Almost 83 percent of taller respondents even think of themselves as funny, compared to 77 percent of average participants and less than 68 percent of shorter participants. One result of the survey was quite clear among both men and women: taller people have a leg up in the dating game, because they tend to have more self-confidence resulting from a more positive body image.
So where do we even get the idea of what our own ideal heights should be? The results of our survey point to the fact that we are projecting the preferences of potential partners onto ourselves. By and large, men seem to be more concerned with their own height than women. Furthermore, the results of our survey suggest that these concerns are also stoked by external factors.
In Defense of Dating Shorter Men
Ever since we launched Amalli Talli , my eyes have really been opened to the number of tall girl problem memes — especially ones that relate to tall women wanting to date tall men.

This stereotype is what has triggered many of us as tall women at some time to feel unfeminine, uncomfortable and out of place.

It was a year after college, and the person asking me that was a guy I had just started casually dating. He actually was a couple inches taller than me, but the question caught me off guard. It was as if he had peeped in on my mental conversation earlier that afternoon, when I was debating whether I should wear wedges or flats. Years before this, I went to an all-female high school, which meant that if there were going to be boys present at a dance, we had to invite them. I distinctly remember brainstorming who I was going to invite to my first dance as a freshman.
Sure, Mark was my buddy from childhood—we talked on AIM all the time. He was cute, friendly, funny, and pretty much the ideal first-dance date candidate except for one thing: He was a couple inches shorter than me. I looked at my mom, completely outraged. And for a while, I was right—and adamantly so. Through high school and college, and even into my early twenties, with beau after beau, height was one of the defining characteristics in what I found attractive in a man.

This trend could serve a bigger purpose, which is to stabilize the distribution of height in the population, he says.
If men and women both preferred only taller or only shorter mates, the height distribution would shift—creating a semi-taller or semi-shorter society. And that matters, because there are important health costs associated with being very tall or very short, Gallup says. Extra inches, for example, have been linked to an increased risk of cancers and a shorter life expectancy. Short folks, on the other hand, may have an increased risk of heart problems.
