Short guy dating site
Older girls at school dances bully us by spinning us in the air like helicopters. We play tennis in high school because the soccer scrum and mini strike zone no longer apply.
We become the lucky charm at sporting events which is like an acceptable form of bullying.
But my height has only been as much of a problem as I’d let it be.
In baseball, pitchers can't come close to our smaller strike zone so our on-base percentage exceeds 1.000. Middle school bullies assume we are brainiacs and threaten to beat us up unless we provide our homework to copy, and then actually beat us up after receiving their unsatisfactory grades.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.The only way short guys survive is by knowing that we live longer and can weave through Costco aisles faster than our taller, wealthier, calmer, happier and more powerful, popular, employable, educated and sexually active counterparts. which we use to barter extra tater tots at school lunch.
Shortness is great when we are four years old and get to hold the plaque in our soccer team photo. Grade school teachers find our smallness endearing and award us extra stickers and desired parts in class plays.
We learn to shoot the basketball well because opponents reject all our layups. Our friends think they can bully us, too, so we learn to punch them really hard.
