This guy's story could be fabricated, but I prefer reading the responses anyway rather than the original post itself. My favorite comments are the ones telling him to get therapy and confidence. No really, do a word search for "confidence." Perhaps society should get therapy en masse about its height obsession.
"there are plenty of women who love short men of average attractiveness"Blatant lie. There are women who "don't mind/look past" the oh-so disgusting flaw of being a short man, but there are certainly not "plenty" of women who love such men, unless this person meant women who love these men in spite of such traits, and even that's few and far inbetween.
"I know how you feel man, being 5 '5 isn't much better, no one respects us short guys. I try everything, I drive a red sports car, I work out, I show confidence, I even try big shoes that add some extra inches. But there's always guys who can stare straight down at me, and everyone notices. Plus us short guys aren't usually big where it counts either =(. It suuuucks. It just puts a dent in my self esteem sometimes when the average man towers over me."Supposedly shows confidence but tries to wear thicker shoes. Imagine if I said "it puts a dent in my self esteem when the average man is lighter skinned than me." Is that not insecurity? What is it with the emphasis on "towering over" someone anyway? A giraffe towers over an elephant.
The last great comment is from some matchmaker whose 5'0 client got instantly rejected over 50+ times. Also click here for an interview from a dating expert about height. Would all the women who claim "I love you" to their man still say that if he were born 5'0?
Either way, it's not so much the dating itself that's the issue, it's all the platitudes and lies. People think they're helping, but it's super unoriginal at best, and borderline gaslighting at worst. I have proof that this is all bullshit, because take notice any time an ugly woman can't find a date: nobody brings up therapy, her personality, or confidence.
