I dated a musician once who was 5.5" (I'm 5.6", so we were almost the same height), very cute (looked like a combination of a very young Mel Gibson
and Roger Daltry from The Who), well-built, and always broke. He was hilarious - made me laugh all the time. All he wanted to do was bang on the drums
all day - not extremely motivated. That relationship lasted about a year and a half. It ended because he moved to another state, and long-distance
relationships tend to fade away after a while.
The man I married is very handsome, very tall (6.3"), a little on the lean and lanky side. He is extremely intelligent (PhD in Chemistry), but was
completely broke when I married him (he's not broke now). He's definitely more motivated than the musician was. The reason why I married him was NOT
because of his looks, or his PhD, or his motivation. I married him because we had an strong connection from the first time we met. I don't really
know how to describe that connection, but it wasn't physical. I guess we saw so many things in the same light. We had so much in common - our
thoughts on all the big issues, our backgrounds - we seemed to be two halves of a whole. On our first date, we spent hours talking about all the
things you're not really supposed to talk about on first dates (religion, politics, etc.).
If the purpose of your thread is to prove that people are only attracted to others based on looks or ambition or money, it's not workin' on this
