So many men get the short end of the stick by being shorter than average. Unlike weight, fashion, or hair loss, there's absolutely nothing a guy can do to improve his height without cheating via platforms or shoe inserts, or undergoing expensive but excruciatingly painful procedures where they literally break your leg bones.
One of the hardest hit areas of life in coping with shortness is dating. So ladies, I ask: at what age does height not matter as much? Be honest; don't say it doesn't matter if in all practicality you think it really does.

Yesterday I went to my sister's karate test, and among those who tested were two brothers who were my height or shorter, and one of their girlfriends was taller than I am! That debunks this myth right in front of me. Although it probably DOES help that they have found a hobby in martial arts.
Most Helpful Girl
I've never met a guy who struggled dating wise because he was short. I've never met a girl who rejected a guy because of his height.
In fact, two of my close female friends are 5'8" and consistently date guys their height or a little shorter. My best guy friend is 5'5" at the most and has never had a girlfriend shorter than him, and he's dated several girls.
I even know a guy who is only five feet tall and he gets girls (it helps that he's super attractive and very outgoing.)
