As a short woman, 5'0", the reason I am unhappy with my height is pretty simple. The world is geared towards tall people and its getting worse every year now that the younger generations are taller than previous generations so everything is made for tall people. I struggle to reach things at the grocery store, can't even utilize the 2nd and 3rd shelves in my kitchen cabinets and all the equipment at gym is made to fit tall men and is not adjustable. I end up with injuries if I use gym equipment that is not adjustable or some exercises I can't even do. Not to mention chairs are made so that if I lean back in them my feet don't touch the floor thus I end up sitting with poor posture which ends up causing back pain. Not to mention its unfair the women's pants do not come in many inseam sizes as men's do so either I wear pants too long for me or I pay $10 or more per pair to have the pants hemmed. The reasons are pretty simple as far as reasons for disliking being short and I think you are overthinking things. As for mate selection height has never been something I paid attention to when dating.
