Perhaps the taller girls feel a little self-conscious already and don't want to draw more attention to their height by dating a short guy?  I don't know.

Plus there are so many cute heels out there, and if the taller girl already feels self conscious being seen with a shorter man, she's now forced to wear flats. 

Yeah, tall women are beautiful, but I've never wanted to be one.  There are times when I'd like to be 5'6", but generally no taller.

I hear this a lot but I'm not sure I buy it, I don't give a *&^% if the girl is taller than me and wears heels, puts me at eye level with interesting bits (If you can't tell that was both deliberately inflamatory because this pisses me off, and a facetious statement. Never can tell if the tone is coming off in print.)

there are women out there that like short men.  believe me, i know some of them.

I like tall men to look at, but shorter guys are better for things like casual strolls with my head on his shoulder, etc.  It all evens out.

We know that you don't care.  It's the women who care.  Blame it on stereotypes that say that men are supposed to be taller, stronger, etc., and that women are supposed to be able to cuddle up to men and have to look upward to kiss her man.

I know how you feel when I encounter crap like "C cups and higher only!"  I guess women don't have it a whole lot easier, if at all.

At 5'4", I won't date anyone under 5'10".  Sorry.  :P

This is exactly the kind of bigotry I have come in to contact with, its like there is a strict number and if you don't meet it you're done. Sort of like if HLS said LSAT less than 179, no dice...

Get over yourself. It's called personal preference. Look up the definition of bigot.

I don't know what is wrong with us.  I've never encountered men who have height restrictions on women... weight restrictions, maybe, but even that is pretty high schoolish. 

I wouldn't use it as a cutoff.  I'll consider soft factors. 

I know men who prefer not to date women above or below a certain height.  It does go both ways.  Women just tend to be more vocal (and perhaps less flexible) about it.

I'll admit to that; I have my preferences.

Im 5'6 and I dont have any specific height preference, but I don’t really like shorter guys. Not that I wouldn’t ever date one, but Id prefer the guy to be taller than me.

Oh believe me, I don't think its easier for women, I evaluate women on a standard the I can't live up to, and I will be the first to admit it. However, I have "wiggle room" in most of my evaluations... Example (crude but illustrative), I am an "ass-man" however my last girlfriend was draggin' quite the wagon, but had a lot of other nice qualities at the time.

I don't have any standards that have the hard cut-off I have encountered many times in the height department. That's what bugs me, it seems there's no room to move. I can't make up for being short by being funny etc. About the only cure I have seen is being loaded, which is why I seek gainful employment, that and to buy beer for when I go home alone  :(
