The only type of girls that would even look twice at me, belong in the nut house. Confidence maybe key, but as I said love was not made for me. I have had a girlfriend once before, but we both made each other unhappy, and so I learnt to hate love and affection.
Maybe this is why you don’t get any girls.

I am a pessimistic, thus I tend to look for the worst in most scenarios. I wish I was more of an optimistic, but they are often left disappointed, as they set their hearts on something happening, which never does. As I said, I have had a gf, but we made each other happy, and how I act or feel today is based on that relationship.

This is probably the real problem, not your height. You can't view prospective partners through the same lens as the previous one. That isn't fair.

I was not made for loving anybody. Nobody was made for loving me. I gave up on love because of my short posture, I am only 5'6. No girl would even consider dating someone of my height, so please do not leave no comments saying that you would, because I know you're only trying to make me feel better about myself. Height does matter, so when some say it is irrelevant, they are hiding behind their lies. I gave up on love because I know that love gave up on me.
stop being a ***** in this life, no one cares abt ur problems. i can really tell you will never find love with a mindset like that

I don't really see why people are being deliberately misleading to the OP.

Being as short as 5 foot 6 will be a significant disadvantage in the world of dating. It is simply untrue to pretend otherwise.

I am not being misleading. I was stating a fact when I said I dated a guy of this height and less, and am put off by tall lanky guys.

The only guys I know who are shorter than me (one must be about 5’4, the other is probably about 5’5) are both married with kids. They’re also skint and not what I would consider good looking.

If you can’t get women it’s not because of your height, it’s probably because you’re miserable. No one enjoys wallowing in someone else’s self-pity.

Finding a partner will be difficult for a 5ft6 male, there is no doubt about that.

As an aside, it isn't really great logic for people to post a random example of a short man with a wife as evidence that "height doesnt matter". Some people will succeed despite disadvantages, but it doesnt mean that height doesnt matter. It is one of the most important aspects of a man's appearance.

These threads are so weird. Everyone in real life knows that height matters. My girl friends openly criticise short men pretty regularly. Then on here, everyone tries to pretend that height doesnt matter.

That is the worst reasoning ever.

For example, facial appearance clearly matters in terms of finding a relationship. I am sure you know ugly people in relationships. Does that mean facial appearance doesnt matter? Of course not!

Also, being in a wheelchair is going to be a disadvantage in terms of finding a partner. And yet you probably know someone in a wheelchair with a partner. Again, that doesnt mean that the disability isnt a disadvantage.

Well height is clearly important, and OP's height is significantly shorter than average. So I think it is entirely possible that his height might stop him from finding a partner. It is actually probably the most likely reason for him to struggle, unless he has other issues that he has not disclosed.

Most women are around his height these days. Most women are going to want their partner to be a bit taller than them. His height will clearly present a problem.

Please try to not be so hard on yourself. You are probably so young still and the pandemic has made it to so hard for people to communicate with each other and meet face to face. Many people have never been in relationships before and then they may meet someone in ten, twenty years time. You are deserving of love!

Ok both ur points aren't true because as important as height may be if he has other good qualities he can even get away with dating someone his own height secondly it would put him at a disadvantage and make his success less likely with women in general but the chances of it completely stopping him from finding a woman are minimal

moreover alot of girls are less than 5'3 nowadays

Just because someone is ugly to you, doesn't meant they are ugly to everyone. So whilst appearance does matter, people have different views on what they find attractive
