Short men are screwed when it comes to dating, right?After all: most things in your dating life can be worked on and improved upon, but the cold hard truth is that some aspects are set in stone. and there are few other aspects that cause men as much dating agita as being short.If you’re not 6 feet tall or taller, then you may as well just resign yourself to a sexless life of Napoleon jokes.Of course, short is relative; what we consider “average” height varies depending on geographic locale and someone who’s 5’6″ would consider someone who’s 5’9″ (the average for American men) to be lucky.But hey, that’s cold comfort when women are putting “six feet tall, minimum” in their dating profiles and your friends all call you “Short Round”.The thing is, as with many other masculine insecurities, this is predominantly in our heads. Worse, I’m the shortest of all my friends who range from 5’1o” on the short side, to 6’7″ on the tall side.But my height has only been as much of a problem as I’d let it be.
Seem like a tall order One of the worst things that guys can do to themselves is to get defensive about being short.Look, I get it: you’ve been getting Oompa Loompa jokes since forever.You’ve been called midget, Tiny Tim, Grumpy and all the other names.You watch women – even women who’re around pass you by to date taller men. But you know what’s unattractive on aspect of your life.Society tends to equate height with masculinity and power; when you are lacking in one, you feel that people assume you’re lacking in the others as well. It bleeds into your body language and into the way you talk and relate to others.You may think that you’re hiding it like the professional poker-player you could be, but in reality, that sour attitude is shining off you like an especially greasy halo.potential attraction, no matter how awesome you may be otherwise. The more you let your height (or lack thereof) bother you, the less attractive you get.A shitty attitude, whether angry and aggressive or defeated and negative, will nuke any chance of sex or love faster than telling them that you eat live puppies. A short man with confidence is far more attractive than a tall guy without it.The attitude that your height is a defect and nobody could possibly love a short man is attraction poison. Yes, you may have to fake it for a while as you unlearn the bullshit that’s been shredding your ego.That’s Just remember: Cultivating an air of ease and self-assurance is not only attractive in and of itself, but it leads into my next tip: It’s not how tall you are; it’s how tall people feel you are.There are some people who can fill a room, regardless of how tall they are or aren’t.
