With Valentines Day just days away, think twice guys before you ask a lady who has a few inches on you out on a date.

According to a Match.com survey, 71% of women said they won't date a guy who is shorter than them.

Evidently height really is an issue. I know, it seems somewhat superficial doesn't it?

Let's face it, we all know physical attraction is an important part of any relationship, but who says women can't be attracted to vertically challenged men.

Take for instance couples like:

I know being rich and famous greatly improved their chances of landing these taller ladies. But you still see plenty of taller gals with shorter guys. So don't give up hope men!

If you're still feeling a little short changed guys, I guess there's always shoe lifts or have you considered wearing horizontal stripes?
