Fujitora and Penguinn,
As long as a person is not absurdly short, there's no problem.
A girl, or anyone for that matter will consider your height an absence of an advantage rather than a disadvantage.
You guys would have both removed your disadvantage. After you do this, your success with women or at work will be dependent purely on other factors, like your personality, money and dressing/grooming sense.
And my theory is...anyone who is strong enough to do LL.....is strong enough to change the other factors in their life as well.
