I am a rather average young man of height standing at a regular height of 5'10. I would like to be taller because I feel it would increase my confidence and level out the playing field that is dating. Does anyone mind sharing their height and discussing how it has affected their life? Please share. Thank you.

I'm 6'1. I suppose I'm tall but not very tall. I don't think height has any bearing on confidence.

The thing is I like tall women and these women probably won't go for a guy who isn't at least 6'0, but I suppose confidence from within is an awesome trait.

Women's tastes vary as much as men's.  One of my best friends is like 5'7" with a wife that's 5'11".  Can't happen if you're too timid to ask, though.

I see tall, modelish chicks with shorter guys all the time. 

Have you ever seen a chihuahua try to hump a pit bull? I have. That chihuahua just walked right up there, latched on and started humping that bitch like he owned her. 

Be the chihuahua. 

I have this thing where I feel that the man should be taller than the woman. Do you see where that leaves me? The exception being when I dance and my head is right smack at her cleavage.

I have this thing where I feel

If only one could control how they feel...

Oh, wait. That is the ONLY thing we can control.

Never mind.

lol Tim I am only 2 inch taller.

Short men unite

There are enough women that are shorter than 5'4" that you're probably not completely down-and-out having a taste for women shorter than you.

I am 5'4" and I say +1, Steve! 

You're not all that short.  I'm 5'10" in cowboy boots.  I wouldn't mind be 6'2", but I didn't get a vote.  My mother is 4'11", and her father was 5'7".  Professional basketball was never in the cards.  I'm the second tallest of 14 cousins.  Genetics.  Why fight it?

 

Confidence isn't a matter of height, its a matter of knowing what you're about.  Don't fight what you can't change.  Work on what you can change.  If you lack confidence, the problem isn't your height, its your presence, or your personality, or your voice, or something else.  Work on asserting yourself.

 

Be careful not to overcompensate, though.  There's a difference between being assertive and being belligerent ... between being comfortable in your skin and willing to stand your ground, and being a sawed-off fool brawling to prove something to somebody (or yourself).  Don't become the latter.
