It is one of only two issues I don't have... the other being hair loss. Hooray for good genes:-)

From what I hear, it is extremely different to surmount for men below a certain threshold (which varies with country and culture), but once you're above that, you're good. What's the threshold in modern America? I'd guess 5'7'' or so... or 5'5''... but I really have no idea...

I think 5'7 and even 5'5 is not the crippling limit, I just anecdotally know too many people that are fine with women at those heights, and those heights are not that rare. It's certainly a major ding factor but it's not crippling.

I think if we're even going to try and delineate an arbitrary line where height becomes insurmountable....
.... 5'2 or so is when you hit a crippling limit in the united states at least. At that point you're better off moving to a different country where people are shorter or height is less of an issue.

5'8" or 5'9" is my preference. Well, my strong preference is 5'11"-6'4," but that's a little rare, and lower than that but above even 5'7," it's probably not an issue for me.

Actually above a certain height men start having trouble again, or at least I have; once you're past 6'3 or 6'4 additional height is not really an advantage.

I'm very tall, and it has been nothing but an asset in life and with the ladies. I think freakish begins somewhere north of 6'7". Anything between that and 6' is very easy on female eyes, provided your face isn't a mess.

One of my best friends is like 6`10. He's got a lot of confidence problems with women :|

I feel kinda bad for him. He bought himself a little brand new M3 too. I told him that's the wrong car for him but he still got it.. He looks like an rtard driving it. Way too small for him

Women are attracted to money. He needs to focus on making money. Then his confidence problems will go away.

I'd say the threshold in North America is at 5'8. As long as you surpass this, it's below average but no big deal, most women are still shorter than you. Guys over 6' have a good advantage. Guys under 5'8 have to probably have a little more money/muscles/cocaine in order to get noticed, as half the women are taller than them with heels on

Weird thing is, I hear tall women complain about the lack of tall guys, but the ones I date lose interest real fast. Meanwhile, the shorter girls (5'2" or so) are crazy about me. Doesn't make sense.

I don't think it is so much an attraction thing as much as it is the fact that many women pick men like they are picking a handbag. He has to match the look she is going for.

This. The tall women I know complain about not being able wear heels. Of course, every other woman I know complains about heels being uncomfortably painful...

I love short girls. They have such awesome and bright personalities. At least the ones I've hung out with.. Like the realshort ones, 5`2 and under.. Just so spunky n stuff. I love their company.
Short girls are better in bed from my experience. The tall ones just lye there and are real clumsy

I'm 6'1, which is freakishly tall for Mexicans.. Being this tall and Mexican has definitely helped me to distinguish myself..

but the height is only the beginning you got to fill it out.. which takes some time usually..

Meh, my lab buddy back in the day was 6'7" and Mexican-ish. Come to think of it, our PI liked her dudes tall for some reason. Me at 6'4", Mexi at 6'7". German dude around 6'5". The odd man out was a mere 5'9" (white dude).

I actually saw a girl a few months ago who must have been 6'5", and was also really cute. Unfortunately it was in another state and I was just passing through, otherwise I may have tried to say something.

5'8" to 5'9" is the cutoff in the USA if you want to get thin, attractive women. Under this, and no chance. If you're at this cutoff, you need to have other things to compensate (intelligence, career, status, money, confidence, athletic build, etc)

The female's height is moot.

This is the internet. Everything is quantified in number form. Male masculinity is represented with a made-up number, an apostrophe, and then another number - i.e. 6'7. Success is represented with a made-up number with a "k" after it, i.e. 120k. You know when you read this shit that it's all made up, but you just use it as a crude representation of reality. Trust me, I've spent a lot of time on the internet.

The only 3 numbers women care about when dating a guy is how close they meet or exceed the 666:

6 feet tall
6 figure salary
6 inch cock.

HTH.
