Yes, Paul, there are studies that indicate that height - along with weight and attractiveness - are factors in dating and mating. Along with the message that life is unfair. You didn't know that the studies were skewed and are promulgated by drug companies to sell growth hormones, weight loss products, and health/beauty aids?
I was supposed to be a towering 6 ft woman or above so my parents sent me to the endocrinologist at age 12 to determine if my height could be changed. My mom wanted me to be 5'8" so that is the height I am today.
I dated a guy who was a few inches shorter than myself. I hardly noticed that. Normally though I prefer a man my same height or taller.
You made out very well on the normal curve when it comes to the distribution of intelligence. Albeit you would have preferred height as well. Would you be still be willing to take the pill if it decreased your level of intellectual functioning?
I would note that Abe Lincoln, who was very tall, wore a tall top hat, so would have been a very imposing person, towering over everyone in the room. But he was a politician, so it was to his benefit to stand out.
