I have a friend who is perfect in every way, very handsome, confident, happy, energetic, has a great job, loves kids, volunteers and works at charity events helping kids with cancer, runs a soccer league for terminally ill children, and is the kindest most caring guy you could meet.
Problem is, he is 5'4''.
We sometimes go out at night and he will try his luck with women, does everything right, and they just flat out laugh at him and mock his lack of stature. A group of women joked about him being a smurf, and said some really mean, despicable things to him, but what hurt me the most is that he just smiled and shrugged it off.
"I've dealt with this since high school" he says, "It has become so normal for me that I just suck it up and deal with the pain, after all, you only get one shot at life, might as well get shot down and keep smiling rather then become bitter, I just hope that one day I can find love, get married, and raise a family, that's all I ask for, just one girl who is able to look past the way god made me." he told me with a smile.
Later that night I knelt down and prayed for him with tears welling up in my eyes. I hope god brings this great man true happiness, love, and fulfillment.

They make fun of him because they can't take him seriously as a man. One of the first things a girl notices is height! Even before face, since you have to look up there to see it. I personally don't like guys that are too tall. They tend to think they're hot shit, even though they're average in looks and everything just because women are nice to them because they're tall. Your friend sounds perfect. How old is he? ;) You should let him know that there are definitely plenty of women like me who know how to appreciate other qualities besides height.0
