so I'm a guy and I'm only 5'6 maybe like 5'7 with my shoes on lol. but seriously is there anything I can do to make myself taller? the reason I ask is when it comes to dating I do OK but its like girls don't take me seriously because I'm short. I have had ladies tell me before that they are not interested because I'm not that tall. it happens occasionally but its not like all day everyday I get told I'm short and that I'm unattractive because of it. but it is a concern because it does make it a lot harder for me to date.
is 5'6.5 (well say for the argument) very short for a guy? is this something I'm just going to have to deal with? or will things always be in favor of taller guy?
its just frustrating to be judged over something that I have no control over. if I had the power I would be a bit taller at least average height but hey what can I do I was born with this height.
any ideas or advice is welcome.

I don't really know, but I'm going to throw out a guess.
A chunk of women really like tall guys. Most of the women I've dated have fallen in this category - its one of the reasons they chose me over other guys.
There's another big chunk of women who just like a guy to be taller then them.
There's another chunk of women who don't care.
So my guess? 40% of women you're screwed with, 60% you're okay.
So just a few billion.
My boxing coach is 5'4 and does -great- with women. There are a lot of traits that 'women like'. Not every woman cares about every one, and they all have different ones that matter to them. As long as you have your sh*t together and are a good man, and have some positive traits, its just a matter of finding the women who most value the traits you have.0
