My husband and I were the exact same height when we got married 23 years ago. But he is now 57, and it seems that he has begun to shrink in height because I'm now about an inch taller. So I ended up married to a man that is shorter than me.
Taller male are more physically imposing and offer more security and protection for their offspring back in the primordial days. Unfortunately, even in today's world where intelligence and other non-physical traits/virtues are better indicators of one's abilities to provide a nurturing environment for one's offspring, physical traits remain the predominant factor in selecting potential mates. More so for the male selecting female, but no less apparent in the female selecting male.
It's the way it is and I am grateful that I have a fully-functional body and am living in a democratic country. I'm better off than 90% of the people in the world, how can I complain?
I look forward to the day when women take on the responsibility of asking men out, that'll make it a lot easier for me.
Where are you located and trying to meet women? I think Asian men are good looking and find it sad that so many do not get action.
DISH is how we do it.
^this might be your problem.
If you are waiting until women take on the responsibility of asking out men (and when do you think that might happen?) you may be giving off a passive, weak vibe which may not be attractive to many women. For me it's all about self-confidence; a take charge attitude and a strong essence. Because tall men are often perceived to have those characteristics, you are correct; they are often chosen. See the statistics on the height of presidents.
But I know a lot of shorter men who give off the "six foot tall, and bullet proof" vibe and it is very attractive.
But my advice to you would be to be yourself and find someone who will find you perfect the way you are right now.
And I know it's superficial, but it comes from my having always been very strong and being with someone who is shorter than me makes me feel even more muscular and "butch". I have dated shorter guys, because ultimately personality is MUCH more important, but (when single - I'm engaged) I don't normally look at guys that are shorter.
My wife is nearly 6'1" an so almost 3" taller than I am. For the few times/year she wears heels and approaches 6'4"—it's great!!
But what really gets me is that she rides a 58cm with 175mm crank arm, while I am on a 54cm with 172.5mm arm.
