    Wow. Punctuation much?

    And if you're 5'9, you don't get to complain about being short. Honestly dude, the number of people who will accept you for being your height far outnumber the people who think you're too short.

    I'd kill to be 5'9...

    EDIT: Weehee, 300 posts.

    mate, if a guy rejects you because you a little shorter then he is, then its his loss!

    Hello, anyone who is shallow and small minded to reject you on something so small (pun truly not intended) as your height then bugger that go find better!

    I'm 5'8 and height has never been a problem, nor for any of my friends that are short.

    Well except for one that fancied a guy who was 6'5. He was 5'2. The logistics involved in the bedroom must have been mind-boggling, since I saw the effort involved simply for a kiss.

    I'm 6'4", and have dated many people shorter than myself. Shorter men can be just as sexy as taller men -- you just have to meet the right guy who thinks so icon_wink.gif

    I love shorter men. 5'8 or 9 isnt not short in my book.

    I would think he more likely rejected you cuz you write really, really weird. Which probably indicates a lot of other weirdness in your personality.

    Please don't worry about your height. You can't change that.

    And your English is good enough given it's not your first language. But please do your best to improve your English especially if you post here on RealJock.

    All the best! icon_smile.gif

    I find that wearing stilettos helps immensely!

    I am just over 5'6" and I never have a problem getting a date. 90% of the guys I date are at least 3-4 inches taller than me. Being short has its advantages!

    hey, you're tall in my eyes because i stand 5'4" soaking wet! icon_surprised.gif)

    but i have never thought of myself as being short... so maybe it's all in the attitude? how one presents oneself?

    but if you do get rejected based on your height, there's really not a whole lot you can do about it so why not concentrate on stuff that you can do something about?

    Tall guys often are not getting enough oxygen and hence it clouds their judgement...

    I heard size doesn't matter??

    They also bang their heads on the top of door frames which affects their brains.

    I've always had an affinity for men shorter (and stockier) than me. And I'm only 5' 8".

    Somehow ended up with a guy who's 6 feet tall.

    As a 5'7" guy I can tell you, height as never been an issue for me in any way in terms of getting dates and whatnot. I think it's more about the confidence and presentation more than anything.

    I'm 6'2" and I've been tall all my life. I don't think about height too much - I take it for granted - much like having two eyes and a nose, I guess. Most guys I have dated are my height or shorter - so I guess the average guy for me is in the range of 5'8". For me this is not an important factor about a guy.

    Haha I can see where some people get the ideal 5'9 short but it all depends in you environment, at work I'm one of the shortest but when I'm home with my family and mom's mexican side I'm tallest doing "tall people duties" getting things from "high" places for people ect.. Lol I like being home. But as for being 5'9 don't complain its the average male hight I'm barely 5'8 and I'm good with it not to mention I like my dudes taller then meicon_wink.gif

    I'm 5'5" and I honestly can't think of a single moment when my "shortness" ever mattered whether it be dating,sports, whatever....just never did.

    It may have its disadvantages in certain situations...ie basketball, but I have never veered my focus on it, therefore it was never a problem. Perception is reality.
    So the moment you perceive your shortness to be a problem...it is.

    Stop equating shortness to a disadvantage and start realizing it can be very attractive to a lot of people out there...and live by that truth!

    Hey, I'm short (165 cm / 5'5") and I'm constantly told that I'm attractive (not trying to bluff). So you would definately come around as being tall(ish).

    There was another thread a couple months ago (can't find it now) about the exact opposite with tall guys wondering if shorter guys would ever date them. It goes both ways. If you're a great guy, a guy of any height will be interested in you.

    A side note is that I've had in mind to try to find someone my own height for a boyfriend, since I was in a relationship with a much taller guy for years. I've since been finding that I'm tending to attract taller guys, and I'm not as intimidated by them any more.

    I guess there's some truth to the joke I used to say about wanting a guy I could climb. icon_biggrin.gif

    yo whats up, you are like tall to me, lol well then again the world is, i am 5'5 and maybe 5'6 with heels........um i am joking about that fellas.

    maybe you werent short enough, i dont think i have dated anyone shorter than 6, not by choice but its more the whole "your like my polly pocket" crap but hey, i love being short and accepted it already, i actually think it works for some people.

    Don't sweat about it, there will be more and come on, being real if that was the actual reason, well he seems a bit shallow, if he really was a catch then height wouldnt have been a factor.

    i was with a dude who liked tall white guys, we dated for a good while and i actually asked him what was the deal, i am opposite of what he wants, he just liked my personality and said he thought i was cute. BASTARD, lol kidding but hey love is unexpected, i say move on and i am sorry you got hurt, ....

    you'll be fine, lol dilly dally shilly shally bro!
    us hobbits have to stick together, lol.
