I am 5 foot 7, and am more than happy with this. However, I remember joining a dating website a few years back, and the amount of women who specified they were looking for a man with a minimum height of 5'10 or 5'11 or whatever was incredible. I must have checked 30 profiles, only 1 had no preference for height, and 1 more had 5'6 or above. All the rest had specified they were looking for someone taller than myself.
On a larger scale, when it comes to things like job opportunities, promotions etc, does society favour the taller person? Also do women have a similar issue?
