    I feel self-conscious about my height a fair bit, and I haven't figured out a way to deal with it yet. There are days where I don't care, but then something happens where I'm reminded of it. I see some guys who absolutely tower over me and I just feel bad -- like a pang near the heart. How do you guys deal with it?

    This is a thing to be ashamed about? Dude, I embrace who I am and work with what I have!

    Getting upset about things I can't change is like getting upset that I can't fly or will never have superpowers.

    Own it. A confident guy who is happy in his own skin gives off an energy that's infectious.

    Dude, you're 5'7" . . . You're not short. Maybe shorter than average, but your not short.
    There's always gonna be people who tower over you. I have a lot of tall friends (6'3 and over), I may be short to them, but I don't consider myself "short".
    Now, ACTUAL short guys (5'2"- 5'5"), I ABSOLUTELY LOVE. icon_biggrin.gif

    It's easier said than done, but you can't let physical attributes that you can't change get you so down. Besides, there are plenty of guys who are into smaller guys. You'll find someone who will love the way you are.

    Yeah, it's something I'm hoping I'll just stop caring about. Thanks, Nova.

    There's a short guy that works at the same company as me and I find him to be insanely hot, which is very strange because I usually prefer exclusively tall guys, or at least guys as tall as me.

    Granted, he's pretty built for a short guy. And he has a beard. He's like a young-faced Thorin Oakenshield <3

    Dude you aren't even that short. Try being 5'5. But I own my shit.

    I just got banged earlier this week by a ripped Russian model type guy. And one of the reasons he liked me was cuz I was short. Own it. Plenty of hot guys dig the munchkins.

    In other news, I met a really nice Russian dude!!! He was actually a total sweetheart. And gorgeous! Like no shit porn star hot.

    Lets see where this goes.....icon_biggrin.gif

    It's the "grass is always greener" mentality, isn't it?

    OP - you and I are the same height and I've never considered my height as an issue. I dated a guy who was 6'6 and he loved dating guys way shorter than him so there are plenty of tall guys into guys our height. icon_smile.gif

    Furthermore, I have several tall friends and I absolutely adore them. We have the best time when we hang out and my height is not a factor.

    a guy who is 5'7 but has an aura of confidence and sex appeal can look towering compared to a guy who is 6'0+ and just average.

    Thanks! but the luck is long ago gone.

    Go to the gym. If you weigh as much as an average-build 5'9, you are at no disadvantage.
