toulouse_lautrec Posted October 30, 2011 Report Share Posted October 30, 2011 I'm in my 30's, male, and only 5'5" tall. I must say that my short height has made my life much worse. I've never really fit in anywhere, and I've never had much success dating. I don't think any woman has ever found me attractive. My life was relatively happy until everyone started growing around junior high/high school. Everyone except me. I tried to ignore it and live my life, meeting people, but it has always seemed to hinder my progress. I've never really dated quality women, I had to lower my standards to date overweight and not so intelligent women, as they were the only ones really interested in me. But a part of me just got tired of it. Why should I be the one to compromise? Why can't once, a woman compromise for me? These kinds of thoughts go through my head every day. Now as I'm getting older (almost mid 30's) I'm noticing people in general are getting taller. When I'm walking around, at the mall, store, etc, I notice that so many women are as tall or even taller than me. And 9 out of 10 guys are taller than me. Even 12 year old girls are taller than me. It just drives me crazy. I feel like less of a man. And I'm filled with rage about my situation. 4 to 6 inches more and I could have lived a happier life with more acceptance from society and the kind of woman I want(ed) to date. And to tell you the truth, it's not really about dating. I personally do not like my height. I don't like dealing with it. I don't care what others would say or think. I personally can't stand it.I have more to say, but I just wanted to get this off my chest first before I go into more detail. I've posted many times over the past ten years on various boards and newsgroups about my problem. I know what to expect -- people are going to say it doesn't matter, to have confidence, to accept it, etc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
