For a girl, it's definitely a high percentile.

Stupid to wear some shoes that makes you seem taller.
In the end of the day she's going to see how tall you really are and you won't wear shoes if you take her home. Height is just not something you'll be able to hide and it will only make you look stupid if you try to do so.

I'm 6'7 being too tall is not great all the time either, I tower over all the females I've been with and I rather not hook up with females shorter than 5'8.

I aint trying to nitpick here but don't worry you are not 4 inches shorter than her, only two. On another note as a 6' girl she must be over the whole height issue by now, unless you are dating an 18 year old or something.

Something about you screams insecurity.. Why would you everywhere post your height or other physical attributes? Youre obsessed with yourself.

appreciate it.

The more you act like it's not an issue at all, the less likely it will be an issue for her. Tell her she looks good, but don't mention her height or tell she's tall.

Some tall women are insecure about their height. A good friend of mine is tall and blonde and looks like Laura Dern and she is super-insecure about her height and looks.

...there are 12 inches in a foot...

anyways, to the OP, if she's agreed to have a drink with you she has probably already crossed that bridge.

Only an insecure person would come up with such conclusion. When have I spammed about my height or other attributes? The times I've mentioned my height have been in basketball discussions or threads like this when people like OP make too big deal of not being tall. Hell, I even wrote that being tall isn't even a hit when meeting females.

Women don't care how tall you are; they care about how you "carry" yourself. Height happens to be the biggest aspect of how you carry yourself, and the one part of it you have no control over. But there is a lot you do have control over, like how you dress, your hair, your gait, your demeanor, etc.

On the whole, you want to be taller than the woman you're with. It's almost always a compatibility stretch if you're not. But this doesn't apply in all cases. I've seen great matched couples with inverted heights. The important thing is to "act tall." If you're some huge tall dude but you just act awkward and lanky, that's not attractive either.

Point is, that persuaded her.
Was he 5'4?
