    I think it mainly depends on the width of your head. Wider is better for short cuts. if you looks at vid's on youtube of haircut time lapses you can see how a haircut changes one's appearance dramatically. You can make your face seem wider/narrower/more symetrical with the right haircut.
    It changes to a degree, but doesn't make the person more or less handsome. They either have a good looking face or they don't. Ironically, I have seen lots of videos of guys shaving their heads for a laugh, and they actually look better! Even the women's comments are all positive

    Women are always saying to me " Oh your so tall!"(6'2) It's a great compliment for something that took so many years to achieve.
    Im 6"2 as well, do you get much nookie?

    Haircut surely does go a long way, as does the way you dress.

    Seriously, on days that I just roll out of bed, throw on an old t shirt and go out, I get absolutely no attention. Other days when I actually spend a minute or two on my hair, and put something decent on then the results are drastically different. Come to think of it, every time ive gotten somewhere with a girl (number, date, sex or whatever), its ALWAYS been when I dress it up and have better hair, without fail.

    Yeh some people do look better with no hair. It's all about getting a haircut to fit the shape of your face. I don't think it's really rocket science here but it's something I never really considered until someone brought it up.

    I'd say maybe height is less important as long as they're taller than me.
    For me build is pretty important but also looks
    I guess with good looks and good build come confidence?

    WOW im officially the shallowest person ever :/
    Haha that's not shallow, you can't force attraction. There's no point in going for character/appearance traits you don't like but feel you should.

    6'2 is pretty much the perfect height for picking up chicks. Tall enough that the girls go "mmm he's tall" but not so big that they say "jesus christ he's tall"

    People don't even try to deny it anymore. Everything that leads to happiness in life is overwhelmingly determined by your height.

    Whether or not you will have any success with women is determined by your height so the chances of a woman falling in love with you, getting married and having children with you is not determined by anything you have control over but is determined by your height. So therefore, your happiness is determined by your height. Whether or not you will be happy in life is determined the very millisecond that the genes coding for your height were transcribed when you were in your mother's womb. Everything else in reality either detracts or distracts from this happiness, whether it be war or famine or sitting on the sofa watching T.V rather than socialising with people.

    I guess I've finally figured out the true meaning of life, it isn't something esoteric or elegant or profound, it is something quite mundane:

    Height. Shows over folks, you heard it here first. However, from this question spawns more questions. How can I ever be happy knowing the truth? Can I live for something else other than for happiness? Do I even know what happiness is? The very thing that I have spent a lifetime searching for, that at times felt within my grasp, that which I knew nothing of?
    Nobody is denying that women love men taller than themselves. But how on earth can happiness be determined exclusively by your height!

    I am also quite short (5 ft 9) like you and no woman has ever fancied me or ever asked me out and I have never ever had a girlfriend or had a kiss or a snog or sex, since most women are taller than me - but this doesn't mean that I cannot be happy.

    For example, I have a really good stimulating job now which pays well and I am able to afford a nice house in London or a fast car on my salary. Also I can play sports like footy and cricket and snooker and pool with my male friends and read some really interesting literature and play really enthralling computer games you can really get into - like strategy games such as Empire Total War, Napoleon Total War, Medieval 2 Total War, Rome Total War and also racing games like Gran Turismo, Need 4 Speed, Nascar etc.

    There is so much more to life than women. Surely you must have a hobby that you are really passionate about. Like, during university I got into trading stocks and shares and currencies and also snooker and because I worked most evenings I didn't even need to bother socializing with women at all! If you get a good circle of male friends you can simply just ignore women and pretend they don't exist. They will eventually just become colleagues and sometimes friends. I also did lots of exercise and made sure I excelled at study and building my career (but it can be anything you wish) and so removed the need for any women in my life. On Friday and Saturday evenings you can organize big gaming sessions or go motorcycling or have a massive Wii session or PS3 multi-tap with strictly no girls allowed!

    Meanwhile women can continue to do their hobbies which often involve dressing skimpily and clubbing and because you are so absorted with your hobbies you won't even care what they are doing. Many women will continue to do this during their 20s and early 30s as they search for a hot, naughty and sexy male partner on their clubbing circuits to have dirty sex with and maybe to marry but many will fail. In their 20s many women are most concerned with a man's height and also with things like whether or not he has a nice hairstyle, his dress sense, his facial hair style and also things like whether he likes similar drinks and also whether he has a good **** for shagging in lots of positions.

    But in their 30s many women will become very maternal and start trying more desperately to 'bag themselves a man'. Also there is a saying by that stage that "all the good men are taken". Now if you have played your cards right, by this stage you will have developed a really good career for yourself, be very financially secure and also highly knowledgeable. Many women's radars will go 'beep beep - get that one!!!' when they look at you - and you can even be ostentatious - but then you can just reject them for similarly superficial reasons (by saying they are say, not intelligent enough, not cultured enough, not short enough, or that they do not share the same motivations etc.) and whilst they will snort and growl to their friends about how 'shallow' you are you can sleep well knowing that you are only doing to them what they probably did in their 20s. There will be no way they can force you into going out with them as every day their boobies droop southwards a little bit more. Everyone has their own prerogatives in dating people etc. - but dependent on how stringent they are with their criteria - that restricts the pool of prospective partners available to them.

    And by that stage, surely you will be happy. Don't you think?

    You're right mate, 5"9 isn't freakishly small by any means. You should just go for a smaller girl and it won''t be a problem. I think most men are disappointed going clubbing and looking for women as it doesnt happen. I think when women get maturer they look for well rounded men, i.e good personality, ok looking, intelligent so don't even worry. I know a lot of friends who are tall an dont get much play, all to do with confidence
