How to stop feeling inferior as a short dude Watch

It's pretty common knowledge that women prefer tall men. I was talking to a girl today exactly about that. It's because tall men provide a sense of safety or protection, that a short guy would simply never be able to provide for a girl in the same way that a tall guy can. So obviously when it comes to dating it's hard not to feel that you're inadequate. So are there any ways of tackling this or is it just something you live with?

I do, it's just hard to put on muscle and I'll still look like I'm a 15 year old, just a bit wider.

Your confidence is how you feel.

Don't live like you need approval or validation from other people (girls or other men).

If people don't like you because of your height, **** them. Go meet someone else.

Don't change for other people, meet those who like you for being you.

I (as a boy) for one will not discriminate people for their height.

:goodluck:

Success with women does depend on how other people view you, it depends on their approval of you. So if I'm trying to get into a relationship I definitely need approval from women. I don't get that approval and I stay single. So that impacts confidence because I'm failing. Also idk how to meet people who like me for being me, firstly I have a terrible personality and secondly I am terrible physically so it's kinda tough when someone likes your personality but thinks you're too short to date them.

Not all women, you only need approval from one person (the one who's going to be your partner).

I don't get that approval and I stay single. So that impacts confidence because I'm failing. Also idk how to meet people who like me for being me, firstly I have a terrible personality and secondly I am terrible physically so it's kinda tough when someone likes your personality but thinks you're too short to date them.
Personality you can improve, if you know you don't have a good one that's already the first step to improving yourself.

I personally find that personality > body, but that's just me (straight man).

I've known for years that my personality is sub par, I just don't know how to completely change who I am. How do you change your sense of humour, what you're passionate about, the way you make conversation, how shy or confident you feel?

Talk to more people, get to know new people - that's the only way. The best thing to improve yourself is to learn from others.

Once you are accepted into a (new) group of friends, your confidence will improve. Who knows they may even be able to introduce you to other people (including girls).

How big is your penis? I don't mind height as long as you're thick and long.
