    Go to gym and bulk, become stocky. Best you can do with a short height.

    Keep anon please.

    I just turned 18 and I am 5'5".

    Seeing as how 5'7" is the minimum for girls (yes even short girls) what can I possibly do? Please don't lie to me about how there are girls that would date a short guy because in threads about a guys height, it's clear that girls wouldn't date a 5'5". Even in real life you can see this. I am sure even girls who are 4'11" don't want a 5'5" guy.

    If I could afford it, I would get leg lengthening surgery. But I can't.

    I will pretty much date any girl. If a girl wants to date a guy my height, then that alone is good enough for me. You can call it desperate if you want, but why should I follow my own preferences if it's already hard to find a girl who likes short guys? Surely that is just going to lower my chances even more?


    hire another midget, stand on his shoulders, wear a matrix jacket, you know, the long ones that reach the floor so it covers up the midget beneath you, and bob's your uncle. you'll be dating in no time!

    seriously 5''7 is the minimum for girls? i'm 5 ''5. :confused: perhaps i should take my own advice... :yep:

    Well it seems to be the minimum for short girls. The taller the girls are, the higher their minimum is I guess.

    makes sense.

    also on a more serious note, just be yourself dude. if you're uncomfortable with your height or yourself in general, it's not much of a turn on. i think someone already said this but it's true! 5'5 isn't all bad. people could care less how tall you are so long as you're likeable! :yep:

    I'm 5'3" or so so it wouldn't bother me at all. I'd have an excuse not to wear high heels, and kissing wouldn't be painful to my neck. I like your imagined "minimum height to be able to get girls" though.
    Well, when discussing about a guys height. It's the shortest girls ever go. They say something like "Im short and any guy over 5'7" is fine. Seriously, I have never heard a girl go below that.

    These jokes are of little consequence.

    The OP will rise above them.

    First i've heard of this. I'm 5"3, i'd date a guy who was 5"5. As long as they were same height/a bit taller. I wouldn't care.
    Stop generalising by saying all females prefer guys who are 5"7, is this in the unwritten book of girl or something? =/

    Some of the comments that are above are extremely harsh, and I can't believe it's been taken as such a joke.

    I completely sympathise with you. About 3-5 years ago I used to be one of the smallest in my year, but fortunately I'm now one of the tallest in my year. I understand how you must feel, but at the end of the day you have to be yourself. If a girl is more interested in how tall you are rather than your personality and who you are then she is not worth being with in the first place, it is as simple as that.
    It's not just about height either, it's about how you act and how you express yourself through your body language. If you stand with a straight back it sends more of a positive message than standing slouched, and girls will pick up on those sorts of signs.

    If I were you I'd just keep on looking. You'll find that you will be in the right place at the right time and something will happen.

    Does it actually matter? You shouldn't assume the reasons girls won't like you is because of your height. By the way, shouldn't you be trying to date women not girls?

    I probably wouldn't go for a short guy, tbh. I'm 5'3" myself which is considered to be small and it's weird if I wear heels and would be taller than them (e.g. every night out/occasion). As long as they're a bit taller than me when I've got heels on, that'd be the preferred height. Having said that, there's no real 'ideal' height. And as others have said, all that really matters is if someone loves you for you.

    If you've JUST turned 18, though, as you say in your post, you might still be able to grow another inch, possibly, over the next month or two?
