OMG: I'm tired of being short. I'm tired of girlfriends leaving for a taller version of me. I'm tired of hearing "you'd be so hot if only you were taller". I'm tired of being smart, attractive, funny, talented, motivated, confident, and having an advanced degree with a well paying job when none of it matters because of my height. Forever alone because every girl sees me as a fucking child.

  1. Buddy i'll give you the honest truth: It will never change. Just don't let them 'settle' for you when their looks fade and they need stability.

    There are some women out there who actually are not heightist bigots but they're not easy to find. You owe it to yourself to develop thick skin and go after what you want without fear of rejection. If you don't you're screwed.

    There is no help or support system and no one will want to hear you complain. You will start to notice how the same women who hurt you for something you can't change receive support, praise and comfort when they complain about things that are in their power to change. These women will never truly understand what it's like to earn something on merit rather than genetic luck. People will never stop pandering to them. Take your mind off of these things.

    Finally my friend, just remember, it's all ok because you don't need anyone but you. You decide how much time to spend thinking about this thing you can't fix vs time to spend changing the things you do have power over. Life is a precious gift and billions of lives over millions of years of highs, lows, joys and struggles, have all come down to you. That makes you as tall as anyone else.

  4. I'm taller than my boyfriend and have never had an issue with it - the only time I think about it is when people point it out. You'll find someone who doesn't care, which will make them worth it :)

  5. Don't be such a whiny cunt. My boyfriend is 5 feet 5 and I'd never leave for a "taller version" of him because such a person does not exist. You must be doing something wrong or dating the wrong girls if they can't see past your height.

    1. What? It's not me that can't see past my height.

      One girl I dated told me that sometimes she wished I was taller.

      Sometimes, when you can't change something, all you can do is whine about it.

    1. Ya, I couldn't possibly have all those good qualities if I was short, right?

    2. Haha I don't think that's what they were implying.

    3. LOL but maybe you are not relatable? Or compassionate or considerate? The qualities you listed are very objective and don't matter much in the grand scheme of the relationship.

  7. The feels man. It's not that great to be tall, handsome, witty, determined, assertive, intelligent, well-known in various fields, and having multiple degrees making it possible for any career imaginable... no... wait... it is. Whine about it a little more or buy some high heels.

  8. Maybe date girls who aren't looking for "hot". It sounds really immature.

  10. Actually what is short? and what is normal? what is tall? what is 5'10 (shade under)

    1. 6+ feet: Optimal height. Life is easy. Enjoy the undeserved promotions and free pussy your whole life.

      6 feet - 5 feet 5 inches: Normal. No disadvantages from the short side, no advantages for the tall side.

      5 feet 5 inches - 5 feet: Short. Has a chance at semi-regular life and treatment if they work 10 times as hard to be 10 times better than everyone else.

      Under 5 feet: Game over. Your height is your only defining characteristic. Never treated like a real person. Undateable. No respect from anyone taller (which is everyone).

    2. This is so subjective as to be ridiculous. Tall is a relative construction. For example, in India, 5'5 is the average. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_height#Average_height_around_the_world

  14. You have MUCH more of a problem with your own height than girls do, and people (not just women) can smell that insecurity from a mile away. Let's point out why!

    - You literally called yourself "smart, attractive, funny, talented, motivated, confident, and having an advanced degree with a well paying job" which is super douchy
    - Despite all these qualities, you are unhappy with yourself
    - You blame all women everywhere as a group for your personal failings
    - You describe yourself as "forever alone"

    1. You know what the worst part is? Nobody takes this problem seriously.

      How many variations of "stop being an insecure whiny douche" can we get in this thread?

      Maybe I worked hard to be all those things. Maybe I'm unhappy because of the way I've been treated my whole life. Maybe I blame women everywhere because I have no personal failings, but women think of my as a failure because of my height no matter what.

      Maybe I describe myself as forever alone because thats he end result for the majority of short men.

      Why is victim blaming only okay when you do it to short guys?

    2. No matter what you say, you're not gonna get much sympathy here. Heightism is way too deeply entrenched. Good luck man.

    3. Because 14a. "I have no personal failings"..... I feel like you are into MRA and how it's a woman's fault for not finding you attractive. If someone was born with a severe physical defect, is it your fault for not finding them attractive? No it's not, both you and they have been dealt a less than perfect hand in life, and that's just life. It is unfair. But its what you are willing to make of it, and it sounds like you think you've already done your share of the work so now it's literally the fault of every other woman on the planet? Sir you are just plain wrong.

  16. Dude heightism is a real thing and the unfortunate part is everyone denies it. Its just plain unattractive for a male to be shorter than 5'6 period. its just attractive for a male to be over 6 can't do anything about it. If you are in the middle like me, then atleast you are net neutral, but i do agree life gets tough the lower you go.

    1. also to make up for it being 5'5 you are gonna have to be jacked and rock hard abs in comparison to the person who has 5+ inches on you

      Delete
    2. What happens if you're >6' and jacked? Game over?

      Delete
    3. if you are 6> and jacked the 5'5 guy has no shot atleast physically imposing on you so by instincts the girls, the jobs, the people will flock to the 6+ guy

      Delete
    4. Way to generalize. My boyfriend is 5'5, very slim and attractive as hell.

      Delete
    5. @16.d what 16.c says is true. from experience.

      Delete
    6. This is exactly what I am doing, generalizing, sure there are one offs. I am not saying the guy you are dating isn't attractive but given the option before you had met him, biologically you would be more attracted to the 6 foot version of him.

      Delete
    7. @16f I actually don't ever really seem to find myself attracted to tall guys. I'm not really sure why but it's kind of a turn off for me. To be fair, though, I also don't like guys that are super buff. Biologically, I never seem to go with what would make sense. I love guys with glasses, though that's a poor gene to pass on.

  17. Im tired of being dumb. I need a dumb asian bf. I need someone whose open minded. Maybe laurier?

  18. This is largely the reason why tall people are generally useless. You don't have to be good at anything when you never have to prove yourself.

    Why be good at your job when you'll get the promotion because of your perceived competence due to your height?

    Why be a decent human being when girls will like you no matter what?

    Tall guys are as privileged as attractive girls, and have about the same amount of substance.
