I'm a short, white American male that is just under 5'6 (I'm about 167 cm). Despite this, I've done okay with women in the US, but I've obviously experienced some discrimination because of it.
I was just wondering how important height is in Latin American countries. I do realize that the average height is shorter in these countries, which makes me feel a bit better.
Also, if it matters, I have multiple pairs of shoes with lifts that get me into the 5'7-5'8 range.
any latin american country that has less europeans and blacks tend to have shorter men as many mestizos and native looking men here on average are not as tall. at 5Â´6 you wont be considered that short everywhere in LA but argentina or chile in my opinion.

Awesome. Thanks for the response man!
I agree with royaldude. Most of the Latin Americans I have met and seen are very much shorter than Americans. It is very noticeable. The more indigenous/ Indian blood, the shorter they tend to be.
I would also bet that in southern Italy, Sicily, Spain, Portugal, and possibly places like Albania and Romania would have some short guys as well.
Look for women who automatically want to please you because it pleases them. Any woman who seeks to please her man is a treasure. Even better if you don't have to ask but rather suggest.
For what it's worth, my Colombian acquaintance must be 5'2". He is smart, reasonably handsome, and successful. Not educated imho, but very smart. He has a wife in Colombia, a mistress in California, and another in Florida. A child with each. He visits regularly. He is not a ladies' man type or a big talker, more quietly confident.
The mistress here in California is at least 5'5".... and stacked.
I get the impression that he is not considered outlandishly short in his country.

Was in Mexico once, and yes they are shorter. What was interesting to me since I am average (6'3"), but in Mexico many women were attracted only by that fact...
I used that very nice
6'3 is average? Are you from Holland?
