I came to this site after searching for stories about success finding women abroad and read Winston's personal story. I was quite inspired by his story and I'm now trying to save up money to go abroad. It gave me renewed hope that I might find a wife and get married, something that I had lost hope in many years earlier.
I'm 37, born and raised in the USA. Like many on the forum I've had a lot of trouble finding women and have basically been excluded from the dating scene because of my height. I'm only 5' 5" tall and I feel that this has basically shut me out of the dating scene completely.
I've read through much of this site. While I was initially very inspired by what I saw I'm somewhat disappointed by the fact that it seems that the only success stories are with Asian women. I'm not at all attracted to Asian women. Filipino women look very ugly to me. I mostly just find Caucasian and lighter skinned Latinos attractive. Is there anyone on the forum who moved overseas and married a Caucasian woman? If there is, I'd love to hear such a success story.
If I were to go overseas, what country / part of a country would have the shortest Caucasians? I have seen statistics that show the average height of men by country. However, in all the cases it seems that the average height of men in all the Caucasian countries is about 5' 8" or higher. However, I do know that height can vary within a country. For example, the Dinaric Alps have the tallest Caucasians. However, I can't seem to find where the shortest Caucasians are? Would it be Sicily in Italy? Italy's average is 5' 8.2" but I have a suspicion that it might vary within that country.
What would be the best country for a short Caucasian male to go to find a Caucasian wife?
If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it.

You should know that only American women (and probably other Anglo women) are so anal about height. I have heard stories of shorter men dating taller women in Europe (especially Eastern Europe), but I can't say whether most EEU women would do this.
You would still be taller than many Latina women, BTW.
Thank you both for the information!
I see from the chart the shortest countries that I think have Caucasian women are:
Azerbaijan 1.718 m (5 ft 7 1⁄2 in) 1.654 m (5 ft 5 in) 16+ Measured 2005
Chile 1.712 m (5 ft 7 1⁄2 in) 1.572 m (5 ft 2 in) 25â€“44 Measured 2009â€“2010
Colombia 1.706 m (5 ft 7 in) 1.587 m (5 ft 2 1⁄2 in) 18â€“22 Measured 2002
Iran 1.703 m (5 ft 7 in) 1.572 m (5 ft 2 in) 21+ Measured 2005
Iraq â€“ Baghdad 1.654 m (5 ft 5 in) 1.558 m (5 ft 1 1⁄2 in) 18â€“44 Measured 1999â€“2000
Peru 1.640 m (5 ft 4 1⁄2 in) 1.510 m (4 ft 11 1⁄2 in) 20+ Measured 2005
Portugal 1.728 m (5 ft 8 in) Conscripts, 21 Measured 1998â€“99
South Africa 1.690 m (5 ft 6 1⁄2 in) 1.590 m (5 ft 2 1⁄2 in) 25â€“34 Measured 1998
But it seems the only ones under 5 ft 8 in are that short because the average is dragged down by people of other races. Like part of Chile and Peru are Native American. Iran and Iraq are short but probably much too dangerous for an American to live in.
Of those, Peru looks best. But, does anyone know, how common are Caucasian women in Peru?
True but it always seems the lighter skinned attractive Latinas are taller.
