Tom Cruise is shorter than Katie Holmes.
Ethan Hawke is shorter than Uma Thurman.
Nicolas Sarkozy practically walks in the shadow of Carla Bruni.
Janet Jackson is taller than Jermaine Dupree.
Emmanuelle Seigner can see the top of Roman Polanski's head when they stand side by side.

So, yeah. It happens.

Depends on the girl. I'm 5'8 and have dated women as tall as 6'0 although usually the girls i've dated have been shorter than me (which statistically speaking makes sense. . .average female height in US is 5'4)

key word is shortER. a 6'0 guy with a 6'5 girl is shorter but not short. The op is 5'2.

It depends. It's not like the taller you are the better, but being TOO short works against you, usually. My room mate had a few damn good looking women, and he was about my height, but he was an athlete. A lot of women ahve told me that being tall is a turn on, though.

Height is irrelevant. Yes, most women say they prefer taller men, but they seem to have no problem dating men half their size.

Now I personally am more attracted to taller women...because they're closer to my height :)

I would prefer that a guy not tower over me. Close to my height or shorter is great:)

I feel uncomfortable around people obviously shorter than me, but I think I'm pretty unique in that issue. Someone my height is fine, and there are plenty of 5'2 women around so I'd say there's plenty of women who are cool with your height.

You're at a disadvantage in this regard. But it's not the end of the world. Height is just one factor among many that boosts attraction.

Well, errm....not exactly, if you're referring to a male partner.

I LOVE my short guy. My bf is more than 2" shorter than me. You may only appeal to a niche group, but it can happen for you. :)
