Get in here you fucking manlets
I'm 6'7, guess that makes me a mutant too. Am I welcome?
201cm here anon, we should be mutant friends
Yeah I'm not insecure about it. It more has just prevented things from being easier. Like it pretty much ended my basketball life, makes girls a little harder to work with (as if I would have any luck otherwise).
>A.D.D, Depression, Paranoia
>tfw I heard my oneitis, who is a fucking quiet, autistic manga fan,.refer to me as short and weird, after I finished talking to her about manga and left the room
>even though she was laughing at my jokes and generally receptive towards me, asking me for recs and giving recs, as well
I hate being 5'6
Just kill me, please
>tfw when 5'5''
im like a 110 lbs on a good day. people find me cute and non-threatening.
just got to get a haircut that cements the cute and ill be golden.
>Weight under control
My options aren't great.
Where is pic from? I keep seeing it around.
iktfb, shes like 5"1'- 5"3 and still called me short (5"6')
A lot of successful guys are quite short. Paul Simon is 5'2"; he never seemed to give a shit. The problem comes from a competitive and "grass is always greener" mentality. I'm 5'11.5", just short of 6'0", and I feel as though almost every guy I see outside is taller than me. Do people who are 6'1" have this problem? Yes. 6'2"? Yes. Unless you're incredibly tall, you're always going to feel inadequate.
Try to stop caring about how you stack up. In the meantime, convince yourself you wouldn't have it any other way. Shorter people put on muscle more easily. They have lower risks for cancer and longer lifespans. They are stronger for their weights. They require less food to survive and overall less material, so living is cheaper. They can fit into certain areas, like natural crevices in caves, that tall people would just literally never be able to.
5'11" here, feels shit being so close to being 6ft
how do you guys deal with the constant hatred?
im 5'7 myself and wherever i go, i know everyone hates me and thinks less of me because of it. i would fucking kill a man with my bare hands to be 5'10". every time i see someone complaining about it on here, i wish i could jump through my screen and strangle them where they sit
it makes me rage, it's not fucking fair. if i take it like a bitch then im a bitch. if i stand up to it then im just a "lel manlet is mad as usual"
i fucking hate this. everything is so gay. if i even grow just another inch or two ill be happy (im 18)
In high school I was bothered by it but I can't really complain now. Life is pretty good.
Only sports I'm into are like individual stuff like kayaking and rock climbing. I guess being taller would help for rock climbing in some places.
Same tbqh, I just want a tall gf to strangle me between her legs. My oneitis is shorter than me though, but she likes to hit me and make fun of me.
Basketball, American Football, and professional Baseball.
Soccer skills diverge between speed and control. Same with hockey.
Taller players in the sports I mentioned above would be eligible to obtain the ball always by simply towering a shorter player, and they'd be trampled/bumped easier likely due to the taller athletes posing more weight,
People don't straight up hate you, bro. At worst they don't find you very authoritative/attractive, and even that's not too bad. You can still live an ok life.
Source: 5'7" and a few people like me
180cm(barely 5'11) in a land where the average is 181.5cm(almost 6')
Its pretty cool, used to be pissed about but know I appreciate my height. Sure it would be cool to be taller than my dad and tower over people. Im content with my heigh now.
I used to be really obsessed with height, I used to always look up actors heights and compare myself with them. And whenever I meet someone I estimate their height. I also used to look up height estimation based on parents heights. My "estimated height" is 180cm, and I am that height.
whats the point of being a man if i cant be attractive and have a strong presence?
the only solution i see is steroids. sure, everyone would know, but i would probably feel safer and more secure
Being a manlet is honestly the most debilitating condition you could have as a man, aside from facial deformities.
I'm 5'5 and 31, and I've been lifting weights for four years, and I've been searching for girls of all kinds since I was 19, you name them:
White, Chinese, Mexican, Black, autistic girls, shut in girls, blind girls, (yes, a fucking blind girl rejected me for being too short. She felt where my head was compared to hers) Stacys, athletic girls, anime and manga fans, vidya fans, homely girls, even more homely girls, chubsters, and even landwhales, all with no girl being taller than 5'4. Nobody respects you, either. Hell, today I was riding the bus, and I asked the bus driver a question while putting the money in, and he responded with: "Just pay up and sit down, shorty" and started laughing. I also had a fast food job when I was 21where my manager was a woman who was taller than me, and she gave me hell. She would tell me to grab things that were too high up for me, on purpose, would say stuff like "Is your brain as small as you?" "Look up at me in the eyes. I know it's hard because of your stature" etc.
Basically, my fellow manlets, it doesn't get better. I'm still a KV. Find something you love and focus on it, because you sure as hell aren't gonna make it, if you're like me.
Today I walked past a group of girls who I knew for a fact were 14, I was shorter than all of them, had to scootch my way through them.
Went home sobbed and held a gun to my head until my cat jumped on my legs and I felt better, but that might've been the drug comedown too
kid 4 lyf
Dude stop stressing it that much, I used to think like you. Partly it is ture, but not to the extent that you think. This will sound super meme but if you have confidence and dont try to compensate "care" about it people wont care. You can still have a good life. Im also a manlet and i was pissed and obsessed since 2012. Now im not. Because I have come to terms with it. You shoudl also. You might have some underlying weakness that you dont think off and try to focus on your "manletism". I had braces and was a fat fuck. Now i dotn give a fuck, and people stop giving a fuck. Ever wonder hwy there ar funny fat guys and short dudes who score a lot ? They dont give a fuck.
iktfb oh god iktf. not tall but not short. the only good thing about being this height is that its so much easier putting muscle on than being 6'3". I don't think I could really afford more protein rich food or shake on my min wage job
Or just lift natty. You can get a very chiseled body just by working out and dieting properly. Steroids fuck up your heart and risk making you that insanely ripped manlet people laugh at.
It sucks being born a manlet, but desu, at least you were born with limbs and shit. A lot of people have it worse. Focus on what you have and what you can have. Don't worry about what you can't change. If people judge you for it, fuck them anyway.
DESU, I kinda get the blind girl thing, she cant see so she will have to rely on others to protect her most likely. There is a strong sense of masculinity associated naturally with heigh and so people cling to these stereotypes to make the search for an "ideal man" easier. She needs to compensate for her natural disability with extra height from her man which she likely associates strongly with protection, and finds comfort in that "protection".
But as a manlet, fuck it hurt to read about the lack of respect we're treated with.
And then you wonder why are these faggota above 5'6 complaining about their height
I'm 19 and barely 5'2, in theory I should keep growing but just one more inch if anything. That's our life, too look like angry bearded kids our entire life
i dont really care about being chiseled and ottermode. i already do lift natty. i have for 3 years and still look like shit, just stronger
if i cant get taller then i just want to get fucking wide as shit. i want to be a mass monster, powerlifter, i want to be able to know that i have the power to crush anyone who makes fun of me
im fucked up, yes, but that's what i want. when i have that, i will feel at peace with myself. that's why i need steroids
Please don't actually kill yourself because you're short. At least just get leg extensions or something. It's unseemly but it's better than suicide, man.
People shorter than you have done a lot with their lives. People laughed at Andrew Carnage for being 5'3" up until he became the richest man in the world. You can have potential regardless of your height.
quit your belly aching you little fucking bitch
5'10 men aren't hindered at all in the dating game. that is a meme through and through. in fact, if i was 5'10 instead of 5'7 i would probably have been able to get a girlfriend by now
sincerely, fuck you
I am 5"6 and i get pussy everyday.
The difference is I am beautiful and you are ugly.
Get rekt u abnormal 6+ giants.
You have to bend down to kiss and fit into places while I am same height as a perfect girl.
i wonder why the first one cucked you
you're retarded to get married any time, and as a short man even more so
I'm 5'7" and in college and honesty my height has never really hindered me. I've had a bunch of girlfriends, some that are even around my height, I have good grades, and I have had good internships and work experiences. Sometimes I get a little teasing for being short but nothing over the top. The key is attitude; if you go through life pissed off about being short then of course you will alienate people. Be positive and don't stress it too much.
this constant barrage of manlet threads and hate is really getting to me lately
i hide them and hide them, and every time i imagine some smug faggot sitting there giggling knowing that he got what he wanted, he made some manlet mad
i'm at my wits end.
i think i might have to leave the board. i'm starting to have suicidal thoughts that i've never had before
Are you sure it's not something else that's getting you those nasty comments?
At 5'7'' I'm really not that much taller, I doubt people can tell the difference unless we got side to side, and I've never got shit from anyone.
I'm not even that intimidating I think, I'm DYEL.. Perhaps the way you dress really highlights how short you are, and perhaps you also have a weird face or something.
i'm that ripped 31-year-old 5'5 dude that's still a KV, and I have to avoid coming here, or else I'll kill myself. People think it's a meme, but you are completely doomed as a manlet.
I plan to kill myself before I turn 35.
I've experienced this before
WAKE ME UP
it doesnt matter if i do those things
because at the end of the day i know what they're saying is true and applies to the real world
i cant escape it
it hurts to live
I've accepted it, and don't try to act tough or prove anything to people in public, including girls. I am just polite and look after myself. It's kind of nice to not have anybody expect much from you. Easy to lay low
im 5'11" barefoot but im a 25 kv and fully balding, like almost completly bald
some of u manlets are not kv here, so stop crying
desu height does NOT affect kv status, a lot of dudes really tall are kv, tall != ez pussy
its all about fetus testosterone exposure levels
5'11 manlet reporting in.
When I'm walking in public sometimes it comes into my mind. How inadequate I am.
Fuck you mate, you've pushed the thresh hold and are standing at acceptable, girls that even hear your height begins with 6 will be dripping, you know how fucking bad it is to be near 6ft but just a little off?
>you'll always be 5'11''
>you will never be a real man
Just one fucking inch.
5'7, stopped growing at 15, 20 now.
Stopped caring at 18, competely. It wouldn't get a gf even if I was 6'2 so what gives.
Everyone knows it's all about memes anyway.
Manlets find some joy in how jealous i am of you, as i have a fetish for being short and giantesses, its pretty much my main fetish. You have NO idea what i would do to become 5'2 overnight. I read these threads with envy and slight arousal
how not original what the hell
>borderline legit midget
holy fuck theres better ones
theres a bunch of videos of this guy
5'9" prince of manlets reporting
>tfw it's not THAT short, but almost every guy around me is taller
I am also skinny and have slim bone structure, even if I'd get ripped i will look like 14 y.o. on steroids
feels bad, man
>TFW WHEN MANLET AT 5'8"
>TFW BIRD BONES
>TFW OWN A STEPPING STOOL
FUCKING END IT ALREADY
>the music when he drives
Holy fuck, this is brilliant
Being a manlet (about 5'7" and under) is most definitely living life on hard mode, perhaps moreso than any other attribute other than true disability level. I'd call it a "soft" disability for males, hovering right above where true disability begins.
It doesn't necessarily bring with it the obvious, outrageous discrimination that, let's say, being black may invite, but instead makes you vulnerable to the kind of "soft" discrimination that is comprehensively debilitating while going almost totally unrecognized by others (i.e., they'll discriminate against you without anyone realizing its discrimination). If anyone DOES recognize it, you'll get no sympathy but rather a "sorry bro, that's the way the cookie crumbles" type of cheeky consolation. You're an unprotected category, a joke, and a punching bag, for the most part. And all of this is totally separate from the significant difficulty you'll have with most women.
The problem, as i have seen it, is that being a short man basically gives you MORE of the same bullshit that is inherent in the human condition; it's probably inversely correlated: the shorter you get, the more general bullshit you receive.
If there's a resident bully in any given environment, you'll be targeted by him/her more quickly, more consistently, and to greater effect than any other person, all else being equal.
In general, your positive character traits and actions will be downplayed, while your negative character traits and actions are over-emphasized, in any given social situation, all else being equal.
You will likely go through life with a much more tangible and persistent sense of "i'm doing something wrong" than most other people feel (even when you're 99% certain you're doing everything right). You won't get the benefit of the doubt, you won't get anything easy (in the social/sexual sphere), and you'll have to work 2-3 times as hard to achieve the same results, in situations involving interpersonal perception.
he's trying to talk in real life terms and not 4chan and bodybuilding forum memes because on the internet literally everyone is actively trying to make everybody else feel bad and insecure
in real life, a 5'9 guy isnt going to get called out for being short. like he said, that shit starts to happen around 5'7
that music playing while he's driving kills me
>You will likely go through life with a much more tangible and persistent sense of "i'm doing something wrong" than most other people feel
>manlets get treated like dogshit
>manlet stands up for himself or complains
>"LOL NAPOLEON COMPLEX XD"
I started one the other day that really took off. Then it got deleted out of nowhere.
I suspect one of the mods is a manlet.
>You will likely go through life with a much more tangible and persistent sense of "i'm doing something wrong" than most other people feel (even when you're 99% certain you're doing everything right)
pretty much sums me up
i'll be killing myself before i'm 25.
6'2, white, sandy blonde/light brown hair blue eyes here
got amogged by a 5'8 non-white manlet over a girl i was trying to get with. he has way more status than me. i am also very insecure (body dysmorphia) and have extremely low confidence. gonna see a therapist soon.
oh shit you should be one of those hilarious black gangsta weaboos with a waifu caprisun and gun
> Be 5'11"
> Best friends are all taller than me
> Look like a manlet next to them
Pic related, it's me last summer by my best friend.
> Inb4 gonna be cucked by Tyrone
sigh. i wish i almost was a manlet so then i could actually lay down and rot.
instead people (and rightfully so, i am pretty pathetic) give me shit for being weak (rightfully so tho)
This. The reason that people were manlets back then despite identical genetic makeup was the major lack of essential micronutrients and low access to nutritional proteins for common folk. Among wealthy people rich enough for large and diverse diets, he was likely a manlet.
Nice try little guy, 5'9 true manlet King here
Having a Chad/Tyrone as a best friend actually has it's benefits. I can drop N-bombs in public as long as Tyrone is around, and even though he's enough of a geek/weeb to share interests with me, he's extroverted enough to introduce me to new people. Without him I would be a full on robot with no social life whatsoever.
> Le people who go to trade school are inferior meme
Ok retard, so you're telling me that people who avoid the financial racket of going through an over-priced 4+ year SJW hive by learning a skill that will get them an actual productive job are beneath you?
>At the supermarket
>Have to get on tippy toes to grab a carton of eggs
>A group of 5'9 space marine looking assholes pull my pants down and call me a weenie
THROUGH THE FIRE AND THE FLAMES I CARRY ON
That's what I mean, one of my best bros is black (not full on charcoal) who's a bit of a weeb, but just like you, we can get away with certain shit and he always seems to get on with people real easy. Always gets us to a solid party.
>I can drop N-bombs in public as long as Tyrone is around
isolating this statement and reading it sounds really fucking pathetic
> Grow up having taboo beaten into you
> Being given the opportunity to break this taboo
> Feeling the thrill of making wild Tyrones and wild SJWs angry and being immune to their scorn
Feels good man. Sounds like you're jelly because you don't have a Tyrone covering your back.
I don't need to drop N-bombs for thrills. I mean, good on you for getting your kicks when you can, but it sounds like you're just alienating yourself from other people for a fleeting profanity. The only person you're amusing is probably yourself.
It's the average height of American males. Your height doesn't count for or against you. Expect 6'2" Chads to steal attention from you every so often, but you don't really have to be insecure about your height in spite of this.
Eurofag here. Why are American girls so obsessed with 6'0"? Is it because of the Imperial measurement system making them seem extra tall on paper? As far as I know I've never heard a girl IRL say that she needs guys to be at least 182cm, but on the internet it seems every girl wants a guy to be exactly that height or taller.
6'4" fag here, I wish I was a few inches shorter. I have a mean slouch from hunching over desks made for human-sized guys. Girls don't give a shit about me despite my height. All through highschool people said I looked like a "school shooter". Pic related, it's me.
Spoiler: she's not my gf
>tfw will never be a qt boi
We must learn to live with our heights manlets as no amount of bitching and moaning will ever make it change. Instead take inspiration from other manlets who haven't let it hold them down or even used their stature to their advantage. Look at this guy for example who is 5'6.
> Average is 5' 9 1/2"
> Effectively rounds up to 5'10"
> The difference is smaller than the variance created by shoe size
Ok manlet. Sounds like you're jealous of guys for being at the absolutely mediocre height of 5'11"
>Being a manlet (about 5'7" and under) is most definitely living life on hard mode
You have access to the internet, food, water and shelter. You are obviously literate, somewhat educated and could find yourself a job/career and with that find a wife a start a family.
You are better off than 85%+ of all people who live on this earth. Your life is NOT even close to hardmode.
If anything your only disability is being an ungrateful piece of shit who was handed life on a silver platter but decided to squander all your potential sitting on the internet bitching about how it's all too hard because you're not a couple of inches taller.
The main benefit of being a manlet is that you can make mass gains at the same rate as anyone else, but since you have shorter limbs, your gains become more visible and you get ripped easy.
> Using other people in your own community as your reference level as opposed to distant and isolated foreigners
> Thinking there is something wrong with this
I fucking hate this retard mentality. Yeah, I get that it's great that I can have drinkable tap water, that doesn't mean that the huge disadvantages that come with being shorter than everyone around you go away.
manlet reporting in. I don't care about being short. it doesn't bother me and I've never noticed any disadvantage. I don't overcompensate with anything because as I said, I've never noticed any disadvantage. generally speaking, I make a good impression on people.
stop whining about being short, faggots. it's not your height. it's just that you're fucking insufferable.
