Short men are screwed when it comes to dating, right?
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.
When you can build presence, women won’t remember you as that short man at the party.
They’ll remember you as that incredibly charming guy who made them feel like he got them in a way nobody else did.
The trick is understanding how to make height less of an issue.
Seem like a tall order One of the worst things that guys can do to themselves is to get defensive about being short.
Instead, you want clothes that are relatively consistent in hue.
They don’t have to be perfectly monochrome – you don’t need to dress head to toe in black, for example – but keeping things within the same color-scheme helps the eye track over your body without stopping.
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.
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.
