Is there any hope for short guys?

I know it's asked a lot around here but seriously. I've been rejected countless times because of my height (they told me) and I've had relationships end because of it (they told me). I've been told I'm fairly attractive, and I have a great sense of humor. I honestly don't have a problem with my height, but most women seem to. I feel like I'm completely wasting my time now even bothering trying to date. I've always been an optimistic person but there's nothing I can do about it.
Updates:
I didn't realize this would get so many responses. To all the people asking: I'm 5'6.
Thanks for all the supporting comments. I guess I've just been unlucky so far.

  • It is possible. It is harder for short guys for sure but don't let it make you bitter. You only need 1 accepting girl and there are lots of us out there.

  • What height are you? There is definitely hope though, since we have all seen short guys in relationships or even married. I don't get why girls would get with you in the first place if they had a problem with your height though, only to end it later. So stupid.

  • My boyfriend is 5'7, which is the same height as me, and I've never had a problem with that.
    Or, actually, the only problem I have with it is that he keeps stealing my clothes. Especially sweatpants and hoodies. Grr.

  • Don't you worry one bit. The right person will love you for you. Are you okay with dating a taller woman? Because if so, keep being optimistic, there are girls who like that!! If not, try to find a shorter girl!

  • I mean I like a guy around my height, and I'm not super tall. If girls aren't willing to give you a shot because of your height that's their fault, and their loss.

  • Those girls are closed minded. What the heck. If he’s a little taller than I am it’s alright... just not shorter than me that’d obviously feel awkward. forget about those girls they’re jerks.

    • A lot of girls want the 6'1" or better, even if it looks like they're walking with their dad.

    • 6’1” that’s just awkward 🤣 I knew this guy and he was 6’1” he was so tall I had to look up to talk to him and sometimes he wouldn’t hear what I said. Nah that’s just too tall.

    • @zxcded Even at my age there are some mysteries to the female mind. I can't figure where a lot of women come up with their "standards" really.

  • You're two inches taller than me , you'll find someone don't give up.

  • I'm 5'6" 1/2 and I've had great experiences with different women. Been rejected, been the rejecter, I've broken hearts =[, had my heart broken. Don't let the rejection get ot you man. There are plenty of short (er) women who will appreciate you. Just be the best man you can be.

  • Dude, girls who reject you solely based on height really aren't worth the chase. Find someone who loves you as a person. You sound like a respectable person and I'm sure there are lots of girls who'll enjoy your company. 5'6 isn't a midget. Maybe it's not tall, but it's fine. Good luck dude. There is hope :)

  • I'm 5'4" and have done fine. Some have rejected me because of my height but many more just didn't care. Most of my previous girlfriends were taller than me too, and that wasn't the reason we split. I wrote a take where I explained what I think short guys should do to become more successful as these are the things I did:

  • I see short guys with women all the time. My brother is short, every single woman in town wants him. Maybe some women won't, but some will, and you only need one.

  • There's no hope. Just give up and start masturbating. Your only hope for any sort of meaningful connection.

  • As Tripp said, thinking you can't get a girlfriend will make you unable to get one, it has nothing to do with your height.
