Being shorter than average

I won't say exactly how tall I am but I'd say I'm slightly shorter than average depending on how you want to define average I guess. I'm not a 7 foot tall Behemoth I'll say that. 

I think in life in general you're at an advantage if you're tall. If you combine tall with natural athleticism and saying all the modern cool superficial things then you're really popular.

Sod all you can do about that sort of thing Captain.

You are what you are.

We probably all wouldn't mind altering one or two things about ourselves if we had a magic wand.

I thought I'd got away with not going bald...until I was about 40. Instead of getting upset about it, which I thought I would, I just shaved the rest off and almost immediately forgot about it. 

Maybe because that was the same point at which I lost my desire to try and impress the fairer, gentler sex. I dunno.

Yes - I'm probably less desirable as a result - but , on the plus side, I'm saving a shit load of cash on shampoo!!!!!

Swings and roundabouts buddy!

Fuck that shit. Don't be a pussy.
I am short (5' 8"), tubby, middle-aged and disabled...
And yet nobody fucks with me, why?
You will only be a victim if you act like a victim (except for family court).
Nobody will fuck with you if you don't allow it.
Sorry, I know I said that poorly but I hope you get the point.

Those were more past feelings. I could careless now. I'm balding chubby too. Happier single than being in a relationshit.

Only 14% of men are 6 feet or taller. And the average height of a Roman soldier was 5'7" and look what they accomplished. In addition the average height of a Soviet Tank crewman in WWII was 5'6". And if you have ever tried to crawl around inside a B-25 you need to be VERY short. 

SO THERE.

The taller you are the larger your nose must be. The reason for the larger nose requirement is because the air is thinner, therefore, your nose must adapt to the harsher environment. I'm not sure that Barry Manilow was that tall though. Perhaps he had a growth spurt or something.

I think that sometimes it's an advantage to be tall and sometimes it's an advantage to be not so tall. At some point in everyones life their height will be an advantage, and at some point it will seem like a disadvantage.

On a side note, I quite like the idea of burrying my face in between a tall birds cleavage. So there is an advantage to being shorter than a partner. Trouble is though...There would have to be, 1. a partner to begin with; 2. a large enough cleavage to bury ones face into; 3. a bird that liked shorter men burying their face in her cleavage; 4. a very tall big breasted woemen from another planet....the odds are not particularly "stacked" in favour of a man with this type of fantasy though because I'm quite sure that they (woemen) prefer Men much taller than themselves. (allowing for stupidly high heels of course)

I'm just giving an example of just one advantage of being shorter...and the above terms are met.

If you are short, you can suck tatas while you are inside without bending your back.

One of my uncles got early baldness as well, he just shaved his head and actually likes that better, then having hair.

Sorry @ Captain Canuck,

I was in my cups.

Perhaps better advice would have been to go to your local Judo Dojo and sign up. Sure you will get a beat-down for a few months but after that a short stocky dude is formidable. If not Judo then perhaps Krav Maga.

Anywho's I still stand by, look like a victim, get treated like one.

 

Again, I apologize.

Don't apologise Grue...there's no need.

Solid advice.

Personal improvement in any sense is not to be sniffed at!!!

Yeah, there was....

I called the man a pussy!!!

@Captain you can be short and physically not strong but not be a victim.

Ask the U.K. Readers how to legally arm yourself.

An old fashion Coke Glass bottle is a good start.

It really doesn't matter, especially when it comes to attracting women. The top attractive male actors and musicians and the like tend to be short to average height. I'm not entirely sure where the height obsession claim came from, but it's biologically false, so it's clearly a conditioned claimed preference. Women do not actually have this preference in practice, it's something however claimed frequently online, especially by 5'9 men that pretend they're 6'+, and many single women that can't garner much of any male interest, especially from more desirable men. Your average "Chad" is 5'8.
