As if being short is a good thing? It's NOT. Not only am I ****** for dating, I look so retarded. I am 16 and 5'3.5 and I hate it (my parents are 5'7 and 5'0 so there is almost no hope that I am making it past 5'7). And they tell me to like my height. Why? What is there to like about being short? Okay, so I don't bump my head every now and then and don't have to bend into awkward positions and maybe live a few years longer. BIG DEAL! As if that comes even close to being as good as being able to not worry about getting a girlfriend and actually looking like a man. I'd totally give up 10 years of my life, be willing to bump my head everyday accidently, and suffer (possible) back problems in exchange for getting girls and actually looking like a man and not a boy. Tall people also look so relaxed and cool and in control. Remember, shorter people are more energetic, known as "short man complex". But tall guys are so deep, cool, and relaxed. Even if I "act" that way, it still won't come across that way.
All these 6'2 - 6'5 guys look so cool and powerful and like actual men. Here I am, sitting at 5'3.5 walking around like a little kid. Of course girls won't like me.
They say, "Looks don't matter." That's simply not true. I don't care what anyone says. If there is no sexual attraction, there is no romantic relationship - period. And being short KILLS...ALL...sexual attraction. How can I expect to be in a romantic relationship while being sexually unattractive.
It's not just the girls I am worried about. I JUST HATE ******* BEING SHORT. It looks retarded. It feels retarded. I look like a ******* kid and always (most likely) will.
Sorry, I am just pissed off right now. And this is coming after two months of constant frustration and anger over my height. So this is a little, heart-felt. But seriously, why should I like my height?

They tell you to like it because THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!!! It is considerably easier to stop wasting time and energy stressing and just learn to live with it. so your 5"3, It could be worse, there are other things girls look for in a guy like not being an a**hole, being kind, funny and not generally pissed off at the world. Plus do you know how many short girls out there who are tired of standing on tiptoes to get a kiss or looking like their Boyfriends younger sibling or worse still kidnapping victim!!
Find a 5"0 girl, date her, marry her have a bunch of short kids and be a short little family. And when your eldest son comes to you complaining that he's 16 and only 5"3, tell him to get over it, find a short girl, date her, marry her, have short kids, because his only other option is a £200,000 painful surgery that most people won't preform which involves breaking the leg bones, putting screws in them and slowly winching them open as they heal leaving them bed ridden for nearly a year and sometimes lopsided afterwards and you are not willing to pay for that sh*t.
Accept it, move on and overcompensate with a banging body. If you don't care no one else will.1

I'm 5-6 and I've never once in my life considered it a negative. Never!
In hindsight, looking back at when I was your age, I realize how many girls I had a chance with. I just didn't know enough about girls at that age to know it. I can't honestly say if my height limited the choices I had, but I do know that I could have picked from many girls.
There are thousands of girls you will come in contact with. Yes, a lot of girls like tall guys. For a few of them, a short guy is a deal breaker. But with the thousands of girls out there, there are still WAY more girls who are OK with your height than you could ever possibly date.
The connection between two people is very complex. There are hundreds of things that come together to form long term attraction. Height is just one thing, so stop dwelling on just that one thing.
There are thousands of lonely girls out there sitting by themselves who really, really, really wish they had someone. They don't want to be alone any more than you do. Stop being so selfish and go out there and find them. Come on man, they are waiting for you. Those aren't just words to get you motivated. It's 100% true. They are sitting alone at this very moment wishing they had someone. Don't let them down.0
