How can I stop being so insecure about my height?

How can I stop being so insecure about my height? Topic: short articles
July 16, 2019 / By Dervla
Question: I'm 5'11". I read this article on the Daily Mail that made me feel crap about myself. It said: 'Repeated studies have shown that women rate taller men as more attractive and powerful than shorter ones. Researchers have shown that taller men get more replies to dating adverts, have more physically attractive partners and have more children. Taller men also seem to do better in their careers.' 'Psychologists say height good be linked to health - and that women prefer tall men because they are more likely to have good genes. First, given the association between height and attractiveness, partners of taller males may have fewer reasons to cheat, reducing the need for mate-guarding and jealously.' 'Second, given the association between height and dominance, taller males may more successfully deter rivals, reducing the need for mate-guarding and jealousy.' Well I'm not tall and neither is the majority of men in the world. What am I supposed to do? Just roll over and die. I'm a 19 year old guy. Not a girl.

Well, I'm a 22 year old guy and I'm only 5'6". I am 100 percent never growing taller, and sometimes I feel like I look up at just about everyone. Seriously it's a freaking land of giants out there. You are not really short. You're almost 6', so about the average for most guys. You're not the short guy the article's referring to, I'll tell you that. Do you feel better about yourself now?

I can relate to how you're feeling. I was never insecure before I was cheated on, and since then, I'm having a really hard time dealing with it, but I think it's only natural. It's in every biological being to protect yourself from pain, is it not? And it's not just physical, but emotional pain, too (at least for humans). Not to mention, it sucks being screwed over. But, we're all flawed, nonetheless, and one man's downfall may not necessarily be the same for the next. While you've been hurt twice and are having a hard time, the best thing would be to talk about it. Let the guy know how you feel, let him understand where you're coming from. And if you were giving him a real chance, a lot of these insecurities need to disappear. Maybe write about it? Talk to a friend who can relate? It's unfair for him to have to suffer the baggage you've kept from other relationships, even though you're hiding it from him, it will surface somehow. I mean, if you're always so insecure about him, he won't be able to REALLY reach you emotionally and mentally, and trust me, he'll notice after a while. But don't let your insecurities start bringing your relationship down, e.g. checking his phone, constantly questioning him about where he's been, what time did he get home, etc etc. I know you haven't done that yet, as you stated, but if you let your insecurities grow, it will start making you controlling and possessive and it'll kill your relationship. So, open up to the guy and let him know where you're coming from. If he's worth it, he'll talk things out with you and actually understand how you feel. Not every guy is the same, trust me.

You have to be in a position to have an understanding of that all people's different. If everybody was dark, tall, and good-looking what would the point of being you? I feel 5'11 is pleasant for a 19 year ancient. You still have a number of years ahead of you and you'll be able to mainly hold developing. Plus if you are all fussed up on this because getting a companion then you definitely mustn't. It are not able to be that no one on this planet likes you.

Average height for US men is 5'-10.2" so you are a little above average. Considering that the average height for US women is %'-4", you are much taller than most women. I am 5'-8" and my bf is 5'11", and he is successful in his career, gets a lot of female attention, and is healthy. Statistics are just numbers, they don't doom you to anything.

First of all, the partner choice isn't always related to looks and body shape but also the intelligence. Secondly, a question for you: Do you prefer smaller girls?

screw them. i'm the only short one in my group of friends and i'm also the only single one. i don't let that get me down though, and don't let being tall get to you. you'll find a guy who likes you for you... and maybe he'll be super tall, too. :)

Hector Originally Answered: Is Masturbation a cause of stop in the growth of height?
There is no longer any doubt among doctors and therapists that the supposed negative effects of masturbation are false. It is a perfectly normal and healthy form of sexual expression. Ninety-five percent of men begin to masturbate at puberty, and many continue to do so throughout life without negative consequences. Masturbation only becomes a problem if it becomes a substitute for other forms of sexual activity. It is important however to masturbate in a way that will help you learn how to control ejaculation so that when you do have a partner premature ejaculation will not be an issue. No man is born with the ability to control. Controlling ejaculation is something you have to learn just as you had to learn to control your bladder as a child. We get taught to control our bladders but no one teaches us how to control ejaculation. The American Academy of Family Physicians confirms that: “Behavioral methods are helpful for more than 95 percent of men who have premature ejaculation.” So, if you have tried “exercises” and they have not helped it is because they have not been explained properly to you. Many of the treatment programs offered online have not been written by professionals. Do not waste time or money on sprays, vitamins, herbs, dietary supplements or drugs. This is a learning problem and these things will not help you learn to control ejaculation any more than they can help you to learn to speak another language. There are a lot of high-priced programs advertised online but all you need is the explanation written by a doctor and sex therapist that has been used successfully around the world for more than 32 years. It is called "Lasting Longer: The Treatment Program for Premature Ejaculation" by Dr. Sy Silverberg M.D. Visit the website for free tips on learning to control.
