    Considering women are really picky nowadays, what do you think? Take into consideration that times are changing.

    Lots of women marry short guys, mind you they are probably fantasising about a tall guy.

    nope, 5'5'' man is the equivalent of an obease woman, only way is if they get rich and an older woman settles for him (beta provider) but she won't actually be attracted to him and will be slooting on him behind his back constantly

    Well of course there is someone out there for the hobbits amongst us. They'll likely end up with women equal to or smaller than them, thats just how it is. height doesn't dictate everything you know in the looks department and the more important thing is how they stack up(no pun intended) as a person.

    Some of these threads. :rofl2:

    Can you actually imagine? If no men under 5'5 ever got married.
    As if, that were just fact.
    All people under a certain height are guaranteed to spend their entire life alone.

    Did you really need to ask that question? Log off, shut your computer down and have a long hard think about what you've done.

    I don't see why anyone should get offended from a question. I'm asking for my own sake. If it was an opinion or a comment then I can understand.

    I'm asking because I'm below 5'5" and I think I might not have a chance of getting married (I don't have relationships with girls and not allowed to). A councillor in my borough wanted his son to get married to this girl. The girl's family rejected him because they thought he was too short; he was around 5'6". Like I said before, times are changing.

    Of course! I can't even believe people are insecure enough to ask this.

    What I'm trying to say is that I am looking to marry through arranged marriage. As both the man and women have to agree to marry each other, there is a chance that no women will choose me for marriage or at least their family might not choose me.
