yeah you guessed it, I'm a below average male (5'6"), but my problem is that I was at this place that I volunteer at and a girl (probably 17/18) was talking to the guy I basically volunteer for. They're friends, so they were discussing friend things such as dating, and she mentioned this guy who she liked (he liked her back), however she wasn't sure whether to try dating him. After talking about various things, it came down to height: "You don't want to date a midget", "Maybe if I were 5'2" etc etc etc and they talked about it for a little bit.
It kinda weirded me out how they spoke about him with such disgust, for being short, completely dismissing him because he was below average height. This was a bit of a shock to me, I'd always known that women liked taller guys, but I never knew that it could be one of the deciding factors in whether you were to have a relationship with somebody.
I'm not a shy guy (heh) so I've been fairly confident about my chances with girls (if I ever thought that things could go somewhere). However now I'm beginning to doubt myself, I thought I was in the safe zone by being a few inches taller than the average height, but is that not enough? Is my worrying justified or am I just over-thinking things?
