    As long as you think confidence, personality, dress and grooming are not important, you'll have problems no matter your height. For example. Do you have a good job you like? Do you have your own place? Do you have a positive or defeatist attitude? If you are chronically negative, check in with a doctor/therapist to unpack and sort that out.

    Where are you meeting women besides bars and free dating apps? Being on the prowl at singles bars with wingmen sounds silly. What interests, hobbies, clubs, groups and volunteer activities do you participate in? Being overly obsessed with height to the exclusion of developing yourself in other ways could be your downfall.

    In a quick Google search I found 4 dating sites that cater to short people. Women AND men.

    A former coworker had the opposite problem, she is 6'2" and used a site for tall people. She met her husband on that site.

    My brother’s ex wife is 6’1” she had issues trying to get dates as a really tall woman. She was taller than my brother by one inch. My brother’s daughters might have the same issue as they are all almost 6 feet tall and not even an adult yet

    This isn't about height.

    There are plenty of men 5'6" and under who are happy successful, happily married and some considered sex symbols. Stop using height as an excuse.

    Nope -experience doesn't result in negativity -someone's attitude towards that experience is a choice. My experience: It's mother's day tomorrow and we can't go out anywhere, I can't go to the movie theater I often go to get some me time on Mother's Day and now we probably won't have any camps available for our son at least for a good chunk of the summer and we had to cancel two vacations an my gym is closed because of the pandemic. So if I choose to be sulky and cranky and whiny about that to I get to say "it's the fruit of experience" -it's from almost 2 months of quarrantine in a small apartment - certainly it's not "my fault" I'm negative-right??"

    Of course it is - I can choose to mope, sulk, blame the state of the world for my "woes" or I can do what I did this morning at 6:50am in cold weather - go outside like I do daily and head to the park to the jogging path and make myself work out as intensely as possible and notice the moon, the trees, my neighbor out at that same hour - and feel like a million bucks when I'm done. It's totally a choice -nothing to do with "experience" or it's fruit - you know the saying -make lemonade out of lemons.

    Of course some short men are in relationship but how many compared to tall men?
    You don't just understand my problem and you do not have to!
    I know many!

    As I said before, people pick up on your insecurities and attitude. This is your problem, not the height. Stop using the height as an excuse.

    Here's the truth: You have to date a lot of people to find someone to marry. Some people get lucky and find someone quickly, and some don't. And some people are rated more attractive than others for all kinds of reasons. You can't look at any one rejection as proof of anything other than you're not that particular person's cup of tea. So keep asking people out, and keep dating, until you find a keeper.

    I have worked with a lot of what would be considered socially awkward geeks, many of whom were short, yet they still eventually found wives and had families. You just have to get out there and keep dating, keep asking, and don't assume dating is easy or blame everything on your height. An easy dating life usually isn't for anybody but those with an excess of beauty and/or charm, so most people do struggle with it and it takes time to separate the wheat from the chaff.

    Lol ************ you obviously have nothing to say to help so please don't comment because you are not helpful! The problem is the height. You cannot feel it at the end of the day; I can!

    Have you tried any of the dating sites I mentioned previously? The ones that cater to shorter men and women?
