Men's preference for shorter women is at evolutionary odds with women's preference for taller men.

This is why the 5-inch average height differential between the sexes is unlikely to go anywhere.

""Because selection in this generation is then likely to be stronger on average-height men, the next generation will again be slightly taller," Stulp said. "This is, of course, to the detriment of women, so that the selection pressure on female height will get stronger to push it back to shorter height again."
"This back-and-forth loop between slightly shorter and slightly taller generations will continue as long as evolutionary pressures for men and women remain different."

It's the circle of life; get over it.
