    I'm 18 but I'm only 5"6 (5"7 at a stretch, literally) and I can understand why girls want men taller than themselves, in the same way that, given the choice, I'd prefer a girl smaller than myself, but even when I am slightly taller than a girl it seems to be off-putting for them, I mean I can talk to girls and FT them and it all seems to be going well great, once I meet them it goes fairly well too in terms of conversation, but it just feels like after that they proper go off me, and I wouldn't say I'm bad looking, not amazing, but decent, so I just want a right nice girl I can dedicate myself to and try to make happy, anyone any advice? (Please none of the 'the right girl won't care about height' please

    Some girls want them taller. There isn't much you can do about it other than find a real short girl

    Once you think about height, you become too conscious about it.

    The girls you'd want on the other hand won't care squat as long as you're taller than them or same height (realistic here).

    My brother and my boyfriend are about your height (168cm,169cm). No one cares.
    My other partner is 194cm and I am 164cm, it looks weird when we are going out. I imagine how weird it will look if he will go out with someone 150cm....XD

    People saying "the right girl won't care" is relevant because it's true. You dismissing that doesn't change anything about the situation.

    The only thing there is "to do" is get over it. Nobody honestly cares except you (and other short guys - or short straight guys, because this seems exclusively to be an issue with them, so you may want to evaluate where your problem with this comes from RE: toxic masculinity).

    Also being short, I'm told, makes it a lot easier to put on muscle and maintain "aesthetic" muscle appearances, so you have that for you already anyway.

    don't know yet.
    but honesty is very important for me so I won't be with someone who will not accept the situation and be accepted by the others. It is complicated to explain it.

    It's fine. I suppose I'm just curious, because I've never actually encountered a polyamorous person before (online or otherwise).

    There are plenty of 5'6/5'7 men thar have no problem getting laid. The problem isn't your height, so don't use it as an excuse.
