Men Who Think They Are Too Short. To Date The Kind Of Women They Want

Are you a short guy who is self conscious about your height? Do you think it is affecting your dating lifestyle? Well, did you know that there are a lot of women who could care less about your height? It’s true.

If you haven’t met them yet, it's probably because you gave up too fast. You haven’t asked enough women out so you can get to her yet. Yes, most women want to be with a guy who is at least 5’ 8," but you would be surprised by the number of women who don’t care if you are shorter than that.

You don’t believe us? … Here are two web sites that just may change your mind: & These two sites will open your eyes, and make you feel better about yourself!

At you will read stories from women who married men much shorter than them. It didn’t matter to a lot of these women. It’s a great site to visit! At is a list of famous people who are / were much shorter than you think. For example: Elton John is 5’ 3.5." We found this very hard to believe, until we found out for myself. He must wear lifts.

Alan Ladd was 5’ 4." He was one of the biggest actors during his time. He too must have worn lifts. The same with Audie Murphy (war hero and actor), who stood in at 5' 5". The studios didn’t care about their height, obviously, because of their attitude, character and the way they carried themselves. Remember that!

And how about Michael J. Fox? He stands in at 5’ 4." You don’t think the studios could have gotten taller actors for the roles he played in? He too got them because of the way he carried himself, and also because of his personality.

Here are a few more:

Rod Stewart: 5’ 5."
Dudley Moore: 5' 2.5."
Robert Blake: 5' 4."
Scott Hamilton: 5' 3.5.''
Phil Collins: 5' 5." 

The reason why these famous people seem taller is because of their attitude about themselves. Speaking of which, did you know that Jimmy Hoffa was only 5’ 5"? And this guy ran a union for truck drivers! Steve McQueen and Paul Newman stood in at 5’9," and even though that really isn’t a short stature, nevertheless it is only a couple of inches shy from being short. They look taller in some of their movies because they obviously wore lifts.

And speaking of lifts…DON’T USE THEM!! They have to come off eventually anyway, right? Why not have women see you for who you are? It’s just like wearing a wig. It has to come off eventually. She may very well be unpleasantly surprised. How would you like it if it’s done to you? Show your true self up front.

Yes, many women will reject you because of your height, but not all will. Whenever you go out, you will see short men with very cute women who are taller. If that doesn’t convince you that there are many women who don’t care, you have a problem, and it’s not your height!

Many women surveyed on this subject have said that they don't mind having a short mate, as long as they were the same height. So, find a woman who is your height! And then let your personality and character take care of the rest.

It's all up here (between the ears)!
