Wear heels, they're your best friend. And is he complaining about your height? If not, don't stress yourself over it. I'm sure you've got plenty of other great qualities.

There are 7 billion people on this planet. I would rather say you are petite. Guys like to feel manly and being shorter than them you are the answer they are looking for. Embrace your height!

Stop judging yourself as being "too" anything. There is no rulebook. All of the relationship rules society has been teaching you are essentially just mean lies. You make up your own relationship rules. There are short guys too - don't be sexist! Love yourself before you can find love anywhere else. Love your height. Love your looks. Love your soul. Then you can find someone who loves them too.

Height is not a problem in a relationship if both you really appreciate each other besides your appearance.

You aren't too short. Height is secondary when it comes to relationships - at least serous ones. It's best to embrace yourself. Dating happens when it happens, you don't need a relationship to be a good person.

Height is not a factor for dating someone. If you both feel like you have a connection and you're comfortable, go for it!

If the guy loves you, he won't mind, if you really want him then try wearing high heels, and other clothing/shoes which makes you look taller although if he wants you, he will love you for who you are. Good luck!

Height in a relation actually doesn't matter. You can be taller or shorter than your significant other. All that matters is if you love each other.

You are only "too short to date" if you think you are. Why would height dictate whether someone will like being with a person or not? Love doesn't disappear because someone is tall short or average, and the guy that likes you would definitely not think that you are too short.

You will find someone who loves you just the way you are. Just be patient and you will find someone!

Be you yourself and stand by you and your personality. It does not matter how big you are, the most important is your heart

Love your body for the perfection it is, and people who are worthy of you and all the love you have to offer will find their way to you eventually.

As usual the answer here is easier said than done. You need to change your thinking, not your height. You need to explore the reasons why you think this way and ask yourself if this is really true. Every single person on this planet has aspects that they do not care for about themselves but the key is to not let it define who you are.

I'm 5'2, and when I met my boyfriend 6'4, my first thought was, No Way. Pain in the neck.... gonna need a ladder.... but once we got to know each other and got comfortable around each other, it really isn't so bad. at all. I barely notice the height difference anymore.
December 15th, 2016 3:30pm
Thats not true. Guys date girls of all heights. So I can promise you that someone will date you. I am short and a girl. But there are starting to be people who like me for me. There is more to a person than their looks or appearance. Its whats inside that matters. If they are tall and dead drop gorgeous then thats just a bonus but not something that is needed in a relationship.

Know that if a guy won't date you because of your height than that is his problem, height is nothing but your genetics and each person is beautiful no matter the height (:

You should embrace your height. You are unique in every way. If a guy doesn't like it, then that's their problem. You'll find a guy who doesn't care whether you're short. Your personality and all other characteristics will outshine that.

If a guy doesn't appreciate you no matter your height then he isn't worth your time and effort. Be yourself, don't try to be taller (but if you really are concious about it, short hair makes you seem taller ).

Build confidence in yourself. There are a lot of guys out there who find short girls cute. You could look at most of the Bollywood actresses, they're below 5'5. Also, Melissa Rauch, who plays Bernadette in The Big Bang Theory, is short, not even 5 feet tall, yet she looks stunning, and her real life partner is over 6 feet. Take a cue from that and just believe in yourself.
January 25th, 2017 3:04pm
That's okay, just because you're short doesn't mean there aren't good things about you. I'm shorter than my significant other and that doesn't mean I can't be with them or it causes any problems. If anything, some people think it's cute to be with someone who's taller than you. Don't worry yourself about your height.

Being too short doesn't define your romantic manliness. If a women tells you so, then she's just not right for you. Find someone who loves you for you!
March 9th, 2017 11:12pm
Embrace your shortness don't let it affect your life! I am short too I believe it makes you feel better if you accept and love yourself for who you are!
March 15th, 2017 3:38am
Height does not matter. There's always someone out there for you. Don't chase after people that treat you like you're too short or too tall. Be yourself, someone will love you for who you are.

Well first off, there is no qualification for you to be datable. Even if the guys around you right now consider you to be too short, you will find guys, who will like you for the person you are and not because of some abstract height qualification.

Realize that regardless of your height, weight, hair color, gender, or race, you can enter the dating world. If you think that being too short, or too fat, or too thin, or too tall, will prevent you from ever having a boyfriend; the problem lies within you. Learn to accept you, and your wonderful, beautiful, unique body, becuase no one else on the planet has it. You are special, and please don't ever wish to change for a guy. Someone who wants to date you should appreciate you for who you already are. :P
May 17th, 2017 3:07pm
Nothing, because there is nothing wrong with you. Just because you may not meet his preferences for height, doesn't mean you need to change anything. You're just not right for him, but you will be right for someone. Just remember that you're perfect how you are and someone will eventually see that and make you feel as perfect as you are.

Oh lovely, you aren't too short for a guy to date. You haven't crossed paths with the right ones yet! Someone will love every single thing about you, but when you meet The One, you'll have a connection which makes all of the physical things fade into irrelevance. We only have the bodies we're born with, and while there are some things we can adjust with lifestyle, there are some things which are just us; that's how we're going to live in the world. I'm short, and my soul guy is 6'. We have a giggle about it, but the honest truth, and I know it's hard to imagine if someone has said, or implied, something like "You're too [anything]....." in the past, but when you do meet someone who is right for you - none of that matters. Pick out some things you like about yourself, emphasize your wonderful qualities, and wear clothes that make you feel confident, and comfortable. Keep your head up, and focus on the times you felt so proud of yourself that you walked tall and it. felt. GREAT. If you find you can't bring them to mind, imagine the ideal you - confident in your height, and confident to be the very best version of yourself. You are more than enough.

Wait... You're too short for a guy to date you?? Or a guy won't date you because he thinks you're "too short"? If someone thinks that you're "too" much of anything (besides positive things like you're too beautiful/handsome etc) then I don't think you should even want to date him. He should accept you for something you are. You can't just have a growth spurt all of a sudden. And unless you want to wear highheels all the time, I would step away from him and be like, "Okay man, you're missing out on a lot of this *gestures at self* just because of my height tho."
June 10th, 2017 4:40pm
Do you love him? Does he love you? Do you genuinely respect each other? Are you happy together? If the answer to these questions is yes, then height should not matter. Nothing else should matter actually. Just be together like there is no limit at all. And simply enjoy it.

It's common to be self conscious about physical characteristics that you cannot change. But, there's nothing wrong with being short. Try and embrace it. There are some guys that prefer shorter heights and find it incredibly attractive.
