The trick is understanding how to make height less of an issue.
The old saw about how vertical stripes is based on this idea.The stripes encourage your eye to follow them up and down, which creates the impression of height while your eyes want to follow horizontal stripes to the side, creating width.One of the mistakes that short men make is that they dress in ways that First and foremost: embrace monochrome.One of the biggest mistakes that men make is to wear clothing with a strong contrast – a white shirt, brown belt and blue jeans for example.They’re the ones who stand out in people’s memories, who can command attention (and affection) with seeming ease.
One of the best things you can do – especially as a short man – is to develop your sense of presence.
Presence is, simply, your ability to command people’s attention.
It’s the way that you can make people focus on present.
But hey, that’s cold comfort when women are putting “six feet tall, minimum” in their dating profiles and your friends all call you “Short Round”.
The thing is, as with many other masculine insecurities, this is predominantly in our heads. Worse, I’m the shortest of all my friends who range from 5’1o” on the short side, to 6’7″ on the tall side.
A shitty attitude, whether angry and aggressive or defeated and negative, will nuke any chance of sex or love faster than telling them that you eat live puppies. A short man with confidence is far more attractive than a tall guy without it.
