OMG: At 5'4'' my height is a dealbreaker to 99% of women. Guess I'll just try and be cool with dying alone.

  1. Really? I've noticed that women under 5'2 are way over 1%.

  2. Plus, it doesn't matter if 99% of women reject you, you are going to end up with one girl in the world.

  3. The average Canadian woman, according to a few studies by our government, is between 5'3 and 5'4. In Waterloo, the average is likely even lower as our demographics are slightly skewed due to international students. The average height for females is 5'1.5 for PRChina, 5'3 for HK, 5'2 for Japan, 5'3 for South Korea, and 5'1 for Vietnam. You should be good.

  4. I'm a guy who struggles with severe cystic acne. I often thought this too. I can't relate to being short as I'm quite tall (5'9), but I understand feeling like nobody will want to be with you because of some "flaw". Honestly, we're not perfect. Like you'll find a person who will like you for you and not give a shit what the world things.

    1. P.S. I can't take antibiotics or accutane because of a pre-existing health condition. But I mean, you pick your chin up and realize everyone has flaws. Whoever you like probably feels insecure about something to. Like a girl I dated, who I thought was gorgeous, felt insecure about the stretch marks on her body or something? lol, to me it was something so small. don't lose hope OP

    2. 5'9" is pretty average.

    3. @4b Compared to many of the guys at UW, he's pretty tall.

    4. Thats weird, I'm also 5'9" but I consider myself to be short.

    5. I think that anything below 6'0 for a man is a disadvantage.

      Delete
  5. @4c Not really. Even if he is in math, it's not "quite" tall, but rather a little over the average.

    1. yeah, my bad. I think I was just typing that in a rush. I guess I was just saying that in the context of what OP wrote.

  6. good on you for not wanting to give up on still living life. There is still a lot more to it then romance!

  7. Use it to your advantage OP. As a tall, heavily built guy, 6'3", it's harder for me to go out with smaller women because of drastic height and body size differences. So go for the petite ladies if you're shorter. Nothing wrong with that. I envy it sometimes.

      There are so many short woman! It's been a while since I dated a nice tall woman. OP, you honesty have more options than tall guys here.

  8. I'm 5'3". I'd totally date a guy as long as he's reasonably attractive with a good personality regardless of his height. Short guys are kinda cute.

    1. Well, there's my problem. I'm ugly and short (5'7"). I have a killer personality once you get to know me though.

  9. To all the people saying, "Statistics show women average 5'3.. blah blah", that doesn't mean shit. Just because women is shorter than you doesn't mean she's going to settle for someone who's one inch taller than her. She will hook up with the guys who tower over her. Women want men, someone who is capable of providing her with a sense of comfort and protection. Can a 5'4 guy save her from the scary world out there? No. It's biological. But OP I can give you some hope if you'd like: you will find a girl. When you're in your late twenties, girls will finally take interest and settle down with you after theyve already had their fun fucking tall guys throughout their 20s. Kinda bittersweet, huh?

    2. Brace yourself for the feminazi comments coming! (wholeheartedly agree with you, by the way)

    3. I agree with 9 in principal, but there's a flip side to every coin. Men worth staying with get grabbed up no matter their height. Women "sleeping around" is just as much men being sexy but still not worth staying with (personality, temper, whatever) as anything else.

      Delete
    4. 9 I never said women who are inch taller than the OP will settle for him, but rather, he has a higher chance of getting a girl who is shorter than him than someone who is taller than him.

      Delete
    5. Also, by that principle, will a woman choose a short but heavily-built man over a tall but lanky man? Then I think you stand a chance, OP

      Delete
    6. @9c

      Women "sleeping around" isn't because men aren't worth being with you sexist twat, it's because modern women are encouraged to have sex with as men sex as possible.


      >will a woman choose a short but heavily-built man over a tall but lanky man?

      No. Being built as a short guy gets you even more ridicule. Working out as a tall guy is seen as being a man. Working out as a short guy is seen as overcompensating.

    7. 9.f I'm afraid I have to agree to a certain extent, 9's argument is solely based on a male's capability to provide protection for its mate however. Also, are you insinuating that short guys then just perish? He may look ridiculous if he is overly-built, but I think he can get women at about his height if he is medium-built, good-looking, outgoing, has a nice personality, smart, can sing or cook, etc... He just has to try harder.

      Delete
    8. @9f, "modern women are encouraged to have sex with as [many] men sex as possible."

      I'm going to argue that the only thing society is telling them now is that its ok to have as much sex as men...if they want. If you think it should go back to only men being ok to sleep around and women either "good girls" or else worthless then that's you being backwards and sexist.

      Btw, I'm a guy. You sound like someone who never takes responsibility for their own shit. No one is ridiculed for working out. If you can't get yourself to the gym you're only worse off.

    9. As a tall guy you're welcome to my sloppy seconds. I do get hit on a lot by petite women. It's like a horse mounting a goat most of the time as we are both proportioned and sometimes it's a really tight squeeze inside. Your welcome for breaking them in for you.

    10. ^sometimes your point is just proven for you.

    11. Fuck. I'm like a Clydesdale. Then I have these little cute Asian girls chittering and blushing when they see me. The remind me of those fainting goats.

    12. Why are Ukrainians so short, but so stacked?

    13. ^I've run into this too. Not sure what the reason is, but a little glad its true :P

  10. Op here. Yup. Truth.

    The shorter the girl, the taller man they require. They are terrified of their sons winding up short, so they find the tallest guy they can find to balance it out.

    I'd rather die alone than settle for some used up whore.

    In the end, most girls just settle for someone with money. Short guys usually wind up with a lot of money, when you work 10x harder just to get a baseline amount of respect, you usualy wind up oretty successful.

    But fuck that. I'm going to get rich and famous and fuck 20 year old whores my entire life. Fuck being with some bitch who settled for me.

    1. Dude you need to see someone about your anger problems. With an attitude like that you really will need to get rich to get anyone to go out with you.

    2. And die alone you will

    3. You are absolutely disgusting. With an atittude like that I can see why you're still single.

    4. I have a 5'4" friend who's dating a 5'4" guy, and it's not because she settled for him. Dude you need to calm the fuck down.

      Delete
    5. Nobody admits to settling. She wouldn't state if she settled or not out of embarrassment. Who wants a midget for a child or an insecure little man whining about how he needs a booster seat at Denny's.

  11. I'm ugly as fuck. I'm terrified of my children being so ugly as me, so I find the prettiest girl I can find to balance it out.

    1. So basically what you're saying is that short people are ugly.

  12. 11.a I honestly have no idea how you construed my sarcasm in such way. It was directed to short women who exclusively date significantly taller men and claim that it is for genetic reason. Sure, everyone can have a type and all of us must accept that, I merely resent the bullshit double standard. Women being genuinely worried about their offspring is acceptable while ugly guys going for hot girls is creepy hence they should stay within their league. And no, stature has little relevance to a person's attractiveness, I choose a short pretty boy over a giant macho man if I were a girl, because again, everyone can have a different type.

  13. op, i'm a girl that's 5'3" and a guy i've been crushing on for a while is 5'3" too! i have a lot of insecurities, and something i keep telling myself is that the person i want as a significant other wouldn't care about something shallow anyways (or they wouldn't be the one for me!) :)

    1. Pfffft. But I bet you wouldn't date a guy shorter than you. You're taller than most women. Don't worry, it's your biological instincts that make you want to get a taller guy. You definitely can't help it.

      As 10 said, you're too scared to get a shorter guy because you only care about genetics, as well as money for your kids. But it's alright, you just can't help yourself. This quality of "shallowness" you speak of is inherently present in all women, all the time due to only wanting taller men, so I don't think there would actually be anyone who is, "the one for me", as you say. :)

    2. 13a I wish that I could just put you in a little cardboard box and leave you under an overpass.

  14. Raises a good point, what is an acceptable height for a guy?

    ReplyDelete
  15. As a 5'8 man, I'd say below 5'11 is problematic. (I'm Korean, and some women say guys below 5'11 (180cm) are "losers") But the extent to which being short is problematic relies completely on a girl's willingness to date shorter men, as witnessed by several posters above.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My fiance is 5'8 and has never had a problem getting women, despite being relatively short for a male. Maybe it's because he doesn't act like a complete dipshit and think the world is against him due to his height.

    1. 5'8 isnt short.

      You wouldn't be marrying a 5'3 man

  17. In my opinion it would be harder being a female regardless of how tall the male is. If you want advice I would say just try. I don't think people marry for looks alone, not everyone anyways.

    1. This makes no sense. Harder being a female regardless of how tall the male is? What's harder?

      If things have gone as far as marriage, you can bet it's almost always based on more than just looks.

  18. Oh come on QQ more. I've gone out with several guys your height, it's a non-issue to any girl who isn't a stuck up bitch. There's nothing you can do about it so learn how to work with it. Try weightlifting maybe to build your confidence, muscular short guys are quite desirable in my opinion.
