All else equal, and as a woman who is 6'0, I would rather date a taller man than a shorter one.
And I would venture that most women are the same was as me.
The problem is, people are impossibly bad at predicting what's important to them in a significant other. And I know it's true from personal experience.
However, having the capacity to out-think, out-perform and/or out-spend whatever adverse force that’s affecting you and your loved ones will.
None of which have anything to do with a guy’s height.◊♦◊Some women may say, Honey, a short guy can make you feel like the sexiest woman on the planet just as much as a tall man.
When we went out last time, guys who tried to dance with me were met with my boyfriend trying to kiss them on the mouth.
But *some* women also care more about dating an attractive/tall/rich/whatever superficial trait man than dating an intelligent, compassionate, awesome one.
Short men will always try harder because they know they’re not supposed to get the tall women.
They know it’s a tall order (pun intended) but they’re up for the challenge. And if you’ve accepted that a woman can make more money than her partner or a dad can stay home and take care of baby while the mom brings home the bacon, or it’s OK for men to cry, then you must reconcile with the fact that it’s fine for the man to be shorter than the woman.
In fact, short was practically a death sentence whereas height and brawn were the keys to survival because it meant your family and you would be protected if an intruder invaded your cave; it also meant he would feed the family by outrunning and overpowering a wild animal. Height (or two functioning arms) won’t help you from a bear attack.
