    5'9 bro here..depressed about height

    Long time lurker/message board poaster.

    I'm a 5'9 guy. I have a solid body type and I make pretty good money (over $100k). I'm 24 and absolutely depressed about my height. I've been told my whole life that I'm good looking but it doesn't mean **** to me. I played baseball and football in HS and eventually played baseball in college. This is all irrelevant bull**** that helps me sleep at night with my **** height.

    Anyway, I have been somewhat successful with females my whole life. I always felt like I'm not even a real guy though when I go out in public. No matter how solid I am, I feel like tall guys just overpower me.

    I've been with my hot girlfriend for over 3 years now. She is getting hotter by the year but she's 5'6. Kind of sucks when she's in heels and is about 5'10. With shoes I'm about 5'10 (5'11 if I rock boots but can't do that at a classy joint) and it looks weird. I see 6'3 bros strut around giving me strange looks. I feel like the ugliest, most disgusting 6'3 guy can come by and take her from me.

    No matter how much money you have, you can't buy height. How do you deal with it?

    I'm 5ft 6in man and I don't get any less attention. All girls don't like tall guys just like some don't like muscular guys. That's what makes the world interesting because everyone likes something different. My wife doesn't want me all bulked up. Says it's gross. Some girls will jump at it and love a meaty guy. So I wouldn't sweat it man. You are who you are and that's all you have to work with. Who doesn't like it, well screw them. Not much you can do to grow taller. You said you have a hot girlfriend for 3 years now and that's great. Cherish her and don't worry about Joe blow standing next to you who is 6ft 3in. You got the girl not him.

    Good luck dude and don't sweat the simple things. Life's too short (like me)

    This involves two steps:

    1)Accept your genetics
    2)Move on

    Look. I'm 21 years old and 64 inches tall. Mom is about 5' and dad is roughly 5'9''. At this point, I am done growing. Combined with my baby face, a lot of people look at me and think I'm maybe 15 or 16. Does it really matter? In fact, every person was born with some sort of weaknesses and no mortal lives without blemishes.

    You need to embrace your weaknesses and have pride in your strengths. In fact, do what you do with the mindset of proving yourself and everyone else wrong. I used to have your issue, but I came to accept myself and realize that I am who I am. I am also considered pretty good looking.

    Why not embrace that aspect? You aren't Jesus. You can't expect to be without "flaws" (though height isn't really a flaw). Be who you are and not what you wish you could be. Stay true to yourself and you will start feeling confident in your own skin.

    /rambling

    Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successfull personality and duplicate it. -Bruce Lee

    Here's another 2 cents for ya...

    I was always the shortest in my class...Always! Not to mention the skinniest. But....I always had all of the girls running after me. Was like this my whole life (not trying to honk my own horn) but it is what it is. My wife use to be so insecure in the beginning because she would always say you could have any girl you want and you choose me?? But..Eventually she realized I was a good guy and all the other girls didn't matter to me. I was never a player. I have had guys in my class tell me that they'd give anything to be me or in my shoes. They'd screw every girl in the school...No lie! I also had a guy tell me that if he was a girl, he'd "check me" (as in try to get with me). My high school nickname was "pretty." So height doesn't matter. I was told on many occasions that although I was very attractive, my personality is what made me so much more appealing so it isn't what you have or how tall you are or how much muscle you have that defines you. It is the person you are. I didn't start lifting weights to look better believe it or not. It's not that important to me. I was fine the way I was. I only picked up my first weight because of my back and wanting to avoid surgery (see my signature). My wife and I started dating in 1993 while still in high school. We got married in 2002 and are still together. That's what life is all about...Finding someone to love you for you no matter what. Those that you can only get if you were taller or richer or whatever aren't the ones you want. Find someone to accept you for you and you got yourself a winner and height would no longer matter to you...Trust me.

    I know what you mean. I would love to be 6 foot 6 and be 260 lbs of all muscle. But instead, I'm barely 5 foot 8 and come from stocky people and would be lucky to gain a couple more inches of height.

    Just know that if you become big and muscular, that height will not be the first thing someone thinks about if they look at you. I would say that you are average height.

    If your girlfriend is one who truly loves you, she wont ditch you for someone that is taller.

    You could move to East Asia. That will make you feel a lot taller. Also, you can date a woman who is taller than you. I've done it. No one cared. Compatibility is difficult enough to find without having to consider arbitrary heigh requirements.

    And yes, I understand a lot of women do care about height. They aren't the ones for you. They're doing you a favour anyway by narrowing your focus to the women who actually care about important things.

    Lemme tell you something bro. I'm asian, in our community, 5' 7" is considered TALL! The average height is 5'6" for guys and 5'3" for girls. Quit bitching about being 5'9". That is more above average then the general population which is around 5'7" to 5'8".

    You make $100k a year, are 24 yrs old, and have a hot girlfriend??? This has got to be the dumbest post out there.

    I make $41k a year, am 26 yrs old, and have an okay looking gf who drives me nuts. So quit your beechin.

    You sound like one of those stupid spoiled girls on that TV show about teen girls & their sweet 16 bdays. You're like that one girl who cried because her parents didn't buy her a Porsche, but a BMW. Dumb@$$.

    Well, I am also 5 foot 9" , but there are some ways to improve height, as I check on the internet. If you stick them maybe you should get gain.

    I dont know how it works, or even if works, but still worth to try cause it does make sense, I have heard some people has gained about couple inches by doing Pilates , etc.

    But, you are also in good situation. I mean 5 foot 9" is DEFINATELY not short, also you are making $100.000 Year and have a hot girl, which is a great thing in my opinion...

    I'm barely 5'8", with narrow shoulders too. I'd kill to be 5'10". The plus side is that I'm a relatively easy gainer (45" chest, 16" arms, 32" waist), pretty thick front to back. Just wish I had broader shoulders, which would give me wider lats (I would think, at least).

    OP I woud gladly trade in a couple inches to make your salary. Aside from that being tall has its ups and downs as well. It sounds like you have a lot going for you and it sounds like you haven't had any issues with the woman. So in all honesty I wouldn't worry about. There are many tall guys that would love to trade places with you.

    I think you’re making an issue out of nothing, 5’ 9” isn’t short it’s about average.
    I’m the same height as you and it doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

I've been told my whole life that I'm good looking but it doesn't mean **** to me. I played baseball and football in HS and eventually played baseball in college. This is all irrelevant bull**** that helps me sleep at night with my **** height.

    Anyway, I have been somewhat successful with females my whole life. I always felt like I'm not even a real guy though when I go out in public. No matter how solid I am, I feel like tall guys just overpower me.

    I've been with my hot girlfriend for over 3 years now. She is getting hotter by the year but she's 5'6. Kind of sucks when she's in heels and is about 5'10. With shoes I'm about 5'10 (5'11 if I rock boots but can't do that at a classy joint) and it looks weird. I see 6'3 bros strut around giving me strange looks. I feel like the ugliest, most disgusting 6'3 guy can come by and take her from me.

    No matter how much money you have, you can't buy height. How do you deal with it?
    I worried about my height once, then I grew a pair.
    Current Bests (raw/singleply)

    Squat- 435 / 512.5
    Bench- 280 / 308.5
    Deadlift- 495/ 534

    Goals:

    - Squat 500, Bench 325, Deadlift 550 raw at 181-220.

    - Give the recreational bodybuilder thing a solid effort.
