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.Even subtle patterns in the fabric, such as herringbone weaves, can help you slim your visual profile and make you seem taller.However, you want to keep those stripes – think pin-striping, rather than wide blocks of color. Window-pane patterns are a definite no; the horizontal stripes and the negative space created negate the eye-tracking effect you’re looking this means clothes that are cut close to your body.That’s Just remember: Cultivating an air of ease and self-assurance is not only attractive in and of itself, but it leads into my next tip: It’s not how tall you are; it’s how tall people feel you are.
The attitude that your height is a defect and nobody could possibly love a short man is attraction poison. Yes, you may have to fake it for a while as you unlearn the bullshit that’s been shredding your ego.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.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.
