Can a guy make up for being 5'8 by getting a great body?

I know some girls will say that being 5'8 doesn't totally blacklist him, but I'm talking about how he competes in your eyes with other guys. Will him having a really great body, muscles, and six pack, etc... help him compete against guys who are taller than him? Also, he has an above average face, but not super model quality though.

  • Can I just ask, like... What the actually f*ck is wrong with being 5'8? It's an average height and as a small, practically midget girl, (5'1) I wouldn't want any taller than that lol.

    Also, personality is way more important than body type. As long as you have an average body and a wicked personality, girls will be all over you. Some people (like me) actually aren't into that whole "six pack" look. I'd rather he have a softer, flatter, more natural stomach. A "chunkier" guy is sexier than the six pack look.

  • It will help, but everything else being equal you will always be at a disadvantage compared to guys who are taller. Especially if they are over 6ft.

  • 5'8 is my fave height on a guy. Abs are okay but i prefer he just have a nice soft flat tummy. Nice arms and chest would help though and of course an averagely cute face. he's 5'11 but I like a body like this

    • What would you place more importance on getting first a six pack or bigger muscles?

    • Okay, thanks you the advice

    • Thank you*

  • I would say yes, I dated someone who was 5'6"!. It didn't last but not due to anything regarding his height.

    But a nice face and great personality look great on any body type.

  • Thats actually a really good height in my opinion. Its not something that needs "making" up for. However, I know that many women prefer taller than that. I cannot speak for them as I prefer men around your height or shorter.

  • Honestly, if a guy is short, being muscular/bulky would make him appear shorter.
    That's just what I think.

  • 5'8 is fine, anything below 5'6 is a bit on the short side.

    • Because a lot of females only date tall guys.

    • 6'0'' is the cutoff. Again, women make this rule up and enforce it, not us.

  • I don't know..

  • Being in good shape always helps, but 5'8" is far from short. For me, an extremely tall guy would be impractical. I wouldn't be able to reach is face.

  • Honestly just be however you want, I'm sure some girls have probably looked at you or liked you, it's about personality and demeanor also.

  • No, no, no! Three times no! Judging by my own experience a fit guy who is 5'8'' is worse than a fat/skinny guy who is 6'.
