If you’re not 6 feet tall or taller, then you may as well just resign yourself to a sexless life of Napoleon jokes.
Of course, short is relative; what we consider “average” height varies depending on geographic locale and someone who’s 5’6″ would consider someone who’s 5’9″ (the average for American men) to be lucky.
But my height has only been as much of a problem as I’d let it be.
Over the years, I’ve dated and slept with women of all heights, ranging from 5’1″ to six-foot tall amazons.
The stripes encourage your eye to follow them up and down, which creates the impression of height while your eyes want to follow horizontal stripes to the side, creating width.The problem with this is that the sudden color change – from white to brown to blue – creates a visual interruption.The eye doesn’t travel smoothly down your profile; the sudden change cuts you in half, truncating your torso and skewing your proportions.OK, before you click the back button in disgust, hear me out. We inevitably find our focus divided among the million little things that occupy our attention.But when we feel like someone is giving us their listening instead of waiting for your turn to talk – is absurdly powerful.You watch women – even women who’re around pass you by to date taller men. But you know what’s unattractive on aspect of your life.Society tends to equate height with masculinity and power; when you are lacking in one, you feel that people assume you’re lacking in the others as well. It bleeds into your body language and into the way you talk and relate to others.A shitty attitude, whether angry and aggressive or defeated and negative, will nuke any chance of sex or love faster than telling them that you eat live puppies. A short man with confidence is far more attractive than a tall guy without it.The attitude that your height is a defect and nobody could possibly love a short man is attraction poison. Yes, you may have to fake it for a while as you unlearn the bullshit that’s been shredding your ego.Look, I get it: you’ve been getting Oompa Loompa jokes since forever.You’ve been called midget, Tiny Tim, Grumpy and all the other names.
