When short boys begin thinking about dating during or after puberty, they may find that they do not have many opportunities. Boys and girls of that age group are very conscious of peer pressure and with whom they are seen. Many girls do not want to date short boys because of what their friends may think, and how these friends will tease them for their choice.
As they grow into men and women, height becomes less important and there are more opportunities for the short man. However, by this time the short man has received few positive signals and many rejections. He may have developed low self-esteem which can lead to poor personal presentation habits. He may also have become bitter or resentful of the women who did not find him attractive. All of these factors make it doubly difficult for the short man to form a meaningful relationship.
These dating tips are largely intended to help repair those poor habits. If you have other tips that have worked for you and can be included here, please Contact Us.
Smile a lot. But don't be goofy. Show women that you like life. Just about everyone likes to laugh and likes to be with people who make them laugh. Humor is also a good way to show your intelligence. But never laugh at your height or make jokes about it. Don't draw attention to your height. Don't be the court jester. Let women see you for the hundreds of other positive qualities that you possess.
Self-confidence can be a struggle for short men. It's a Catch-22: You need self-confidence to succeed but you may need a history of successes to have self-confidence. Somehow you must break out of the negative cycle and have faith in yourself. If you want someone to believe in you, you have to believe in yourself.
Open yourself up. Invite people in with body language that is relaxed and open. And perhaps most important of all, maintain eye contact. Show the person you are talking to, be it a friend or a woman you would like to get close to, that you are not afraid of them and that you are not mentally elsewhere. Look them in the eyes and be an active member of the conversation.
