    5'9 - 5'10 in height but feeling short & helpless

    I'm between 5ft9 and 5ft10 in height (barefoot) but I'm feeling short and helpless whenever I'm out, be that getting groceries, gym, cinema, pubs, bars, mall... you name it. My pride is hurt because people round my area base so much of a mans worth/respectability by his height.

    I ask other guys that are in the 5ft9 range are you feeling the same? Is it short? Should I just accept that I'm short? Guys over 5'11 or 6'0 do you look at us 5'9 guys and think "he's short as fk - must suck to be him?

    This is dominating my life (srs). I'm always judging and comparing my height and it's driving me mad.

    5'9" is tall by my standards. I like 5'9" guys more than 6'0"+ guys. Not that there's anything wrong with them either, and not that this helps any.

    By the way, people disrespect short girls too. They think they can just push you around like a little kid..you have to work extra hard just to get people to not talk over you.

    I'm 5'3.5", and it does NOT bother me one bit, and it doesn't seem to affect my ability in acquiring women. I simply carry myself in such a manner that either A- people think i'm a few inches taller (personality is the cause), or B- or that I have total confidence and my height is a non-issue.

    Stop worrying about crap you cannot control. Just get in better shape than the other dudes, or smarter than them or something like that.

    5' 9" is in the "not going to be a bonus, but not going to badly hurt you range". If your build and style are in place, you'll be fine.

    You should be happy to be 5'9 or 5'10. I'm 5'6, and have no problem with it. But sometimes wish I was just a bit taller, haha.

    Every girl I've ever known has auto-lubricated in the presence of tall men, and hasn't even bothered to hide it.

    I'm 5'11, and as laughable as it sounds, even to my own ears, I'm actually developing a fcukn complex about being short. EVERY single male seems to be over 6ft tall these days, I feel like a midget in a sea of giants some days.

    It doesn't help that my wife is the same height as me, if not a millimetre or so taller even.

    If I won the bonanza billion lotto, I'd get that leg-breaking height-extension surgery done, just to get an extra inch or two to put me over the edge into the safe zone.

    Also never ceases to fcukin piss me off that every other male in my whole extended family is 6ft and over, I'm the shortest in the whole fcuking clan.

    You complain about being 5'9?

    I'm 5'6.5 and feel like a midget around people. All my friends are taller than me, and I wear shoe lifts to increase my height

    I plan on getting height surgery in 5-8 years though(length limbthening surgery for a better term). Currently saving money. My dream height is to be 5'8.5-5'9. That way, no girls will even be near my height, and I still wouldnt be classified as "really short". i would kill to be 5'9 and be close to avg
