Boundaries for dating teenagers
But my height has only been as much of a problem as I’d let it be.Over the years, I’ve dated and slept with women of all heights, ranging from 5’1″ to six-foot tall amazons.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 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.
Society tends to equate height with masculinity and power; when you are lacking in one, you feel that people assume you’re lacking in the others as well. It bleeds into your body language and into the way you talk and relate to others.

If you’re not 6 feet tall or taller, then you may as well just resign yourself to a sexless life of Napoleon jokes.
Of course, short is relative; what we consider “average” height varies depending on geographic locale and someone who’s 5’6″ would consider someone who’s 5’9″ (the average for American men) to be lucky.
