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?
By not drawing so much attention to his height and being insecure about it.
I didn't know 5'7'' was the minimum girls go for? XD
Do i really want to look like i'm a mouse standing next to a giant?
As long as they're taller than me i suppose *not hard*, i couldn't care less about height.
Become the President of France.
Stop caring? Insecureness is an even bigger turn off.
Go for shorter girls.
Disregard females, acquire currency.
Don't get hung up on girls that care too much over height, find someone that doesn't care.
Easier said than done but it'll happen.
Fake it till you make it. I knew a guy who couldn't have been more than 5"2 and he just had BAGS of confidence (or fake confidence). He was average looking but just so hilarious and charming, his height made no difference. And I'm 5"8 so I really towered over him, in fact I'm very outspoken about not getting with short guys but I can honestly say this guy's height was completely unimportant for once.
Since when is 5"7 the minimum even for short girls? I am short, 5"2, but my boyfriends only 5"5 and I cant say I'm bothered, he had a few girlfriends before me so they obviously didn't mind either. One of my good friends is 5"8ish and she is taller than her boyfriend as he is only 5"6ish. Nobody cares.
If you have to try and attract her due to your height, she's not worth it if she's shallow?
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.
It doesn't matter, you'll meet someone who loves you for you. We all have our insecurities.
