My girlfriend was only slightly taller than I was. Any feelings of manliness or confidence I had would disintegrate. I knew I had nothing to be ashamed of. Logically I knew there was no reason to be upset. She felt more attractive when she wore them. Who was I to tell her what shoes to wear? But my emotions would override logic.
Any person that was laughing was laughing at me. Where did these feelings come from? Why did I feel so intimidated and insecure around taller women? She was really attractive and I had a massive crush on her. She was also about three inches taller than me. It was a Saturday or Sunday morning and I sauntered into the grocery store with my friends, carefree and unaware of who was waiting for me around the corner.
I turned into aisle three and saw her looking at the items on the shelf about ten feet in front of me. I had a flash instinct to duck into another aisle before she saw me.
As I stood there with my mouth slightly open she turned, looked at me and smiled. I was too late. I was excited to converse with her and could sense that she liked me a little bit but for some reason I felt unworthy. I psyched myself out before I even had a chance! Immediately I started apologizing for things. And this was a girl who wore volleyball t-shirts and shorts most of the time. An odd apology for sure.
You should always try to dress well when you're in public — even for a quick trip to the grocery store. You never know who you'll run in to! I just kept rattling them off. Neither one of us really knew why. They tend to laugh at me when I ask if they have something against shorter guys. Three Simple Solutions to Feeling Short Around Women Ironically, my two shortest friends are the ones with no problems getting girlfriends or attracting girls.
They even have problems with girls in their lives fighting over them. Not a terrible problem to have. What is it about these dudes that enables them to attract so many women? I think it comes down to three principles, all three of which can be worked into your own mindset and behaviors. They know what they bring to the table and they lay it out boldly for the girl to see. If she wants to ignore them because they stand a couple inches shorter than her… so be it. No shame in your game Shame definitely has its place.
But you have to draw the line. Girls will very rarely count you out on height alone. The guy was miniature in stature but his confidence was through the roof. He had no hesitation or shame and he regularly told us about his various conquests. I was somewhat terrified of talking to the older, taller attractive girls at school so I would grill him about his mindset and how he was able to project such a massive confidence with such a diminutive stature. His responses were so shocking that I had to laugh.
It was graphic and over-the-top but he said it in a no-nonsense way that was hilarious. The point is that he used his sense of humor to turn the tables on any female who thought about counting him out based on his height. Maybe you dress well or have a great sense of humor. If you don't care, they won't either.
