Sorry for starting a thread on such a popular subject but i'm afraid a life for a short guy is way more difficult. I am 5ft7 and there are 13 year old girls taller than me, its **** and i have to live with it everyday. You get dismissed as a partner because girls shorter than you want the tall guys and girls taller than you want the guys taller than them.

None of the 'oh get over it', 'its not that tough' bull because its very tough if you have been discriminated against continuously for something which you cannot control. Most guys are 6ft+ these days and it is **** when you are constantly in their shadow and that so many girls are taller.

It's not. There are height threads on tsr where a lot (the majority) of girls are taller. It's just pure b.s. , it's like having a disability tbh.

I have never let it get to me until now, but it just makes life a lot tougher and its demoralising to see how girls always run to the 6ft+ guys.

I would never discriminate based on height.

If you're paranoid about your height then you need to get over your insecurities. Simple as that. It's like being paranoid about your penis length, and we all know that's pretty pointless since they all do the same job (unless there's something seriously wrong).

As I said in another thread, a girl who discriminates you because of your height isn't worth dating. Unless it's a preference but still height is not an issue.

Only because you're short yourself...:P:

I have some petite friends and they would prefer shorter guys because any guys over 6ft would just ridiculous and they'd have to get a ladder everytime they wanted a kiss.

Anyway I'm 5'7 (female) and yes, I would only go for a guy at the very least 5'11 because I love wearing heels. Rugby players :sexface:

Yes, girls prefer taller guys and being short would work against you, but it doesn't HAVE to be a deal breaker. It's just one of many factors. I've been known to date guys who are slightly shorter than me (I'm 5'10, so most guys are :rolleyes: ).

What could help you is to hit the gym and bulk up. The reason that women prefer taller men is because of the primitive instinct that makes them seek out somebody who could protect them. The ladies would be more likely to overlook your height if you have really nice arm muscles. :yep:

So you see men as an accessory. What a healthy view of men.

As always, I'll say this: it's not a big issue, it's only a little thing. It should be fairly easy to rise above it and move on with your life. If you meet the occasional girl who doesn't like you at the height you are, you just need to be the bigger man and accept it.

And girls have the audacity to say that men are primitive and shallow :rolleyes:
