I had an ex-girlfriend who was obsessed with dirty dancing, I hate that crapfest and I wish the patrick swayze from Roadhouse would come kick the patrick swayze from dirty dancing in the twig-and-berries. Anywho, she taped dirty dancing and the tape crapped out right at the end where the girl jumps off the stage, I laughed so goddamn hard I think I peed a little. Needless to say my girlfriend was not amused...

the op has some short mans syndrome

keep at it for 9 pages

accept your fate, develop an asian fetish like half of the other guys in the world

Previously admitted the SMS, I consider this 9 pages of entertainment, and a little validation of my view on the world.

And at the risk of sounding insensitive, I never caught the yellow fever, don't have any particular like/dislike of asian girls.

How old are you? There are some options for short people to get an extra inch or two if they still have growth plates on their bones. Kinda like controlling weight through stomach stapling. I think that girls look for 6-8 inches above them. I'm 5' 11", usually date girls 5' 3" to 5' 6" or so.
To sound mysogynistic: Girls like shoes. I know a girl who cannot wear heels because of how short her BF is and it really pisses her off. While you can't help how tall you are, she can't help what she wants to be with.

I'm 25 so no growth left on these bones...

you can wear heels even if your boyfriend is shorter than you, as long as he doesn't have insecurities about it. I've never dated a guy shorter than me, but I have dated a guy who was shorter than me while wearing heels, and since he was ok with it, it wasn't a problem at all.

Yeah, this is how I roll, most of the girls I have dated have been either even or just inch or so shorter than me, so they were all taller in heels, I personally couldn't care less.

Agreed and acknowledged, but I am also saying that there seems to more flex in the over size six range than the less than six feet range. Is there another characteristic that I may be missing that is more universal than height? If you can't tell I am finding this part of the discussion very interesting.

Body type isn't changeable, but there is definitely room for flex within body type. I would say I am the look-good-in-clothes-could-stand-improvement-naked type. And I hit the gym 5 times a week to make those improvements, slowly. I only weigh 20lbs more now than I did in the fifth grade, not because I am small now, but because in fifth grade I was ri-goddamn-diculous fat. Weight is controllable to a degree, and I have learned the extent of that degree by experience. I think there is definitely some weight-bigotry going on in this country (used bigotry for congruency, disregard for flame purposes) but I believe there is also a tendency to use the body-type excuse as a crutch, I know I've done it and I've watched my whole family do it.

With regard to weight, I would say that is the closest competitor to height. Though weight is (admittedly to a degree) controllable. And weight is honestly the number one killer for me when it comes to girls and their attractiveness. But I know a lot of girls who are overweight to an unhealthy degree that get lots of dudes just because of their boobs. Crude but true.

I've also brought it up because I was bored at work and have gotten 8 pages worth of entertainment out of it.

5'11" is alright, but below that is sorta freakish. it's supposed to be a relationship, not a circus. just keepin' it real. your race analogy is weak, kirps.

A) you've just called me freakish because I am less than 5' 11" tall. A physical characteristic which I can't change.

B) A racist hates/discriminates against someone for the color of their skin. A physical characteristic which they can't change.

I'm not saying that wanting to date someone taller than you is akin to being an orderly for Dr. Mengele (sp?) But I am saying that the immediate dismissal of someone solely for their height isn't totally innocent either. And we all do things like that, I just want it to bear consideration.

See, I don't think not being romantically attracted to someone is the same as hating or disriminating against him.  You can't really help who you're physically atracted to and who you aren't.

Are you a bigot if you are not attracted to heavy people or tall people or short people?  No... everyone has certain physical characteristics he or she is naturally attracted to in a mate.  For many women, whether it's biological or societal, we want a mate noticeably larger than ourselves.

I don't think the ACLU is going to come after you based on not being attracted to something physical about someone, no matter what it is.  Here's just one interesting study about attraction (more implications for race than height, but height may still apply):

Ok, you get the new best framed answer award. I think this is valid, and I think I have said before that I definitely do the same thing when it comes to some characteristics about women, I know there are some things that usually don't attract me. And I know my male friends have certain things that don't work for them.

The reason I have brought this up is because height has knocked me out of contention more times than I care to count and that bugs me, but also because it seems to be quasi-universal, as you can read from the majority of posts here and probably gather from your own observations. And while I will admit that us guys tend to be more physically judgmental (myself included) I am not sure there is one characteristic like height that men are hung up on, please comment.
