    I was called a manlet by my peers at uni despite being an inch or two below the average height. I feel insecure and frustrated that I can't do anything about it.

    Wish I had the money for leg lengthening surgery. No joke, might amputate my legs when bionic technology becomes superior than a human limb.

    Nah, it's within the average range which is probably from 5 foot 8 to about 6 foot. I can see why being tall is desirable (I'm 1.93m ) but there are also a lot of problems with it! You could always opt for surgery which can increase height by something like 3 inches (??) but that's incredibly expensive and frowned upon

    I've got a mate who's about 5 foot 6 and he seems to be very popular with the girls....why? Because he's confident and funny! Personality matters so much more than height because at the end of the day, 1 times 0 is still 0 if you're a tall dude who cannot socialise for jack sh*t

    Just be proud of who you are

    I fear they may respond with the hitches of a woman being on top - which I found to be awkward as I couldn't see her eyes as my torso is short

    These days it is yes. A look at any uni campus is going to tell you that the average height is about 1.83 / 6'0
