    Hey I'm almost 6'1 in height and I'm insecure about this because some of my mates are taller than me and there's this girl who's an inch or two taller than me, I really like her and want to ask her out but I feel like i might get rejected and that my mates might have a better chance than me.

    Hey, it could be worse. You could be a 5'7 "manlet" that can barely date anyone!

    When somebody thinks their height will solely decide whether they land the girl or not...tsk tsk, if there's no face to go with it, you may as well be a lanky lamp post.

    Lol 5' 7" is fine. The dating scene gets worse below 5' 5"

    My problem is that I just want to be a few inches taller, I don't want to feel intimidated by taller women.

    Looks like uve been caught up in the whole macho masculinity thing and u can't bear to think of women taller than u. I'm 5' 7" and my ex was 6' 1" and I did not feel intimidated by her at all. Have some confidence nd ask that gal out and I bet she wants to be the little spoon anyway.

    Guess I'm still not used to being out of England where everyone was like 6'0+ lol. 5'5 does seem pretty difficult

    I mean ideally it'd be nice to go "man nah I don't wanna date someone that cares about height" but to an extent a lot of people do

    So RIP us tbh

    This whole thing's making me paranoid.

    Uve got to learn to accept who you are and embrace it. 6' 1" is on the tall end of heights, the vast, vast majority of women are shorter than you. Just anaylse ur thoughts for a second: What EXACTLY about her being a couple inches taller is making you intimidated?

    I can understand it, but trust me - you broke the 6'0 mark, that's as much as most women even want. If this isn't the right one I'm pretty sure there'll be plenty that like you for it

    I literally have no clue, doubt anything was wrong with me at birth. My younger sister is taller than me by like 4 inches as well. Ah well you just gotta embrace it and love it

    Your height is one of the only things you can’t change about yourself so the only way you can get over it is to just accept it really, its not a bad thing and dont let it lower your confidence
