Feeling self conscious about my heightWatch
Vanessa Hudgens, Adrienne Bailon, Salma Hayek, Tarayummy, Kristen Chenoweth, Jada Pinket Smith, Ayla Wooruff ( and so many more) are all very petite and make me feel so much more better about myself. Have a look
I’m 17 and I’m 4ft 11. I feel so embarrassed about it, especially since I didn’t want to be this short yet people act as if I chose to be. People always make comments about me calling me a year 7 and undatable because I’m too short for anyone
It is a joke. Ignore it.
As for the undatable part, you never know your future.
If it makes you feel any better. You aren’t alone. I’m 5ft 2. I won’t sugarcoat anything for you and say yes, your height has a substantial impact on dating prospects. I read somewhere that the odds of finding love on any given day, assuming one is 6ft to 6ft 4 inches tall and has an average looking appearance is 1/360. For guys below 6ft to 5ft 7 it’s 1 in 1000. And for guys below 5ft 7 to 5ft 5 it’s 1 in 2500. Here’s the worst part 😭, for guys who are below 5ft 5, your odds of finding a suitable mate decrease by 10,000 every inch you go lower. So for you, assuming your an average looking guy, your odds of finding a mate is basically 1 in 62,500. It’s pretty poor odds man but hey, that’s life.
Men rarely care about height unless they are short and the girl is significantly taller than them. Lots of guys prefer small women. You're going to get some jokes about your height from friends, but I don't think it will harm your dating prospects.
Theres a good amount of short White guys that are married to tall women even in Hollywood theres a few. There are exceptions like if a woman has a good personality then guys don't care about height. Height is the least important trait for men, for women its one of the most important. The amount of women that would be okay with men their height or even like 2 inches taller is extremely low. You'll never see women with a guy shorter than them, but you'll see men with various heights of women. Its sad
Yeah, its extremely annoying and irrational. You get 5'2 women demanding 6'3 men. It's seems more to be a cultural thing than evolutionary. There wasn't this excessive focus on height 20 years ago. My brother is pretty short and has a complex about it, even though he has a girlfriend. Its sad to see.
Its usually always women that are usually average or short that want tall guys. Women that are usually taller know they don't have a chance cause their competition is stronger and they can't compete against women much shorter than they cause tall guys to reciprocate and basically even say shorter women are better and w/e other BS. It wasn't like this around the early 2010s. I think by like 2013 once apps starting popping up then it got bad. Social media ruined it for everyone. I go on Tik Tok and see all this crap about putting other people down and its just kind of like "Really?" so cringe and this is our society now. You can thank all the social media developers for making it worse. We can't live in a society anymore where people can mingle and chill with each other, its no longer like that
