Dating seemed interested why sudden change
Short men are screwed when it comes to dating, right?
After all: most things in your dating life can be worked on and improved upon, but the cold hard truth is that some aspects are set in stone. and there are few other aspects that cause men as much dating agita as being short.
Look, I get it: you’ve been getting Oompa Loompa jokes since forever.
You’ve been called midget, Tiny Tim, Grumpy and all the other names.
Instead, you want clothes that are relatively consistent in hue.
They don’t have to be perfectly monochrome – you don’t need to dress head to toe in black, for example – but keeping things within the same color-scheme helps the eye track over your body without stopping.
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.
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.
The trick is understanding how to make height less of an issue.
