I'm 5'5 and was often rejected in the modeling world because they always say I'm too short. How about for you guys. Have you ever been rejected because of your height? And for the guys, how short is too short for you to date? And for the girls, how short is too short for you to date? And would you rather be really tall or really short? Thank you mylotters.

My wife is 4'11" tall...I am almost 6' tall...so I guess height is not an issue for either of us...LOL

Hi Tessa! My height is 5'2 so that means I'm shorter than you and also I got a lot of rejections when it comes to height, but one thing that I can't forget in my life is when my relative got married she exclude me as a bridesmaid because of my height and considering the fact that she even invited other lady's who are not our relative just to fill in the number of bridesmaids needed. I really can't forget it because a lot of people says that I'm still qualified to join because I'm cute only that I'm not tall and they think that my height problems can be corrected by wearing a high heels but still my relative excluded me in her wedding entourage.

I'm 5'9 but at times I feel as though I'm definitely 'too tall'. I generally like my guys to be taller than me. I don't think there's anything wrong at all with being 5'5. That seems to be a good height; not too tall and not too short. I don't think it's you to blame about the modeling thing..Modeling agencies are incredibly picky and it wouldn't be an industry I personally would want to get into.. They have an insane idea of 'perfection' that's impossible for 99% of people.

I am 5' 3" and have been rejected by every arm of the armed forces and the police. They had their reasons, one of them being that they were yet to raise a "Midget" battalion. It doesn't matter to me because I have found other ways to earn a living. No short is too short for me! Besides I have not been rejected by my wife even after 25 years of marriage, so I am a winner, I guess. I want to be myself inch by inch!

Height is one of my major qualifications. Honestly, I wouldn't fall for a short guy. Think of the genes. My babies would look like elves..lol My fiance is 5'10" and I'm 5'4". I'm surprised that they rejected you. I mean for me, short means Gloria Macapagal Arroyo..lol 4'5"?
