So I would like a in general younger community's opinion.
My largest is my height. My expected adult height is unlikely to pass 5'7". I am between 5'3 and 5'4 and 16 years old. And my parents are both short (5'7 and 5'0). Actually, I might not even make 5'7.
The reason I ask is I have read some really depressing stories that men in this height range wrote. They said how almost every girl said that they could date if he was half a foot taller, even though they even admitted that his looks were a 10.
Being of Indian descent doesn't help either. I mean I have really good hygiene, don't have an accent, am raised in America and am Americanized, my parents don't cling to traditional beliefs, and am a counterexample to a lot of the stereotypes made about us. So I am basically like a white dude person-wise but Indian looks-wise. But still, nevertheless, race can also be a disadvantage. However, I am not too worried about race, as much as I am about HEIGHT. Height is ****ing important as you can see from what Rosa said and other anecdotes. A lot of girls' first inclination when asked to date a short guy is, "Eww!"
- Yes, even though I am shorter, that's too short.
- Yes, but only because I am taller than him.
- Not a deal-breaker, but I do PREFER really tall guys.
- No, I don't care about height as long as he's taller.
- I don't care about height at all, even if I am taller.
