Online dating tips for the first date
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.
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.
Even subtle patterns in the fabric, such as herringbone weaves, can help you slim your visual profile and make you seem taller.
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.
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.
OK, before you click the back button in disgust, hear me out. We inevitably find our focus divided among the million little things that occupy our attention.
But when we feel like someone is giving us their listening instead of waiting for your turn to talk – is absurdly powerful.
