I'm 5'8" I don't have a problem getting women. I don't have a problem with my height. I've never had a problem getting a job.
I've been told that I project confidence but not arrogance.
I agree, you have to have some self esteem issues to get that surgery.
Surely his legs will just be out of proportion with the rest of his body, and he'll start to obsess over that.
I thought people grew out of this sh*te by the time they reached their mid-20s.
It's not height that makes you unattractive, it's the pathetic insecurities that you hold about your height.
5'8" is not bad at all 👍 I wish I was 5'8" (I'm 5'5.75" officially...5'6" with shoes).
If I'm talking with a 5'8" guy or gal, I have to look up slightly at them. Also, if we're standing in front of a mirror or a large window, they appear significantly taller than me in the reflection.
I didn't think height was that was a big deal until I changed my height on my dating profile from 5'6" to 5'8." And what do you lnow - all of a sudden I get more likes than I've gotten before. A great feeling but I'll have some explaining to do when I meet some of them in person. Lol 🤣
Funny how women can filter by height (something men have no control over)
But men cannot filter by weight (something women have complete control over)
"I'm just looking for a nice guy" lol
I used to have four very large moles on my back. I hated them from the time I was a child until I finally had them removed in my 20s. I'm in my 40s now and still have a moment of happiness when I see my mole-free back in the mirror.
Being insecure over being 5'7" is pretty lame. But I think for people with cosmetic problems outside the norm, like say a man that is 5'1", surgery that brings you back to the norm can be a wonderful thing and doesn't necessarily indicate you'll spend the rest of your life obsessing over other imperfections.
I am also 5’8” tall and it never bothered me. The guy in the article probably would have been better off hitting the gym and putting on some muscle to improve his self-confidence instead of paying $75k for a leg-lengthening procedure. It would not surprise me if his legs have issues as he ages since he did something so unnatural to them. If them only lengthened the part of his legs below the knees, I would think that his legs might not look disproportionate and maybe he’ll have knee pain at some point.
It is sad that someone has such emotional pain and low self-esteem that he decided to do something so drastic.
Short guys have a better chance of safely ducking under an oncoming vehicle if they're caught in traffic
You are really just under 2cm?
You just don't get it, do you. You're 5'8", but this guys was only 5'7". FIVE FOOT SEVEN!!!. He saw guys like you and realized if he could just be a little bit taller, like you, all his demons would go away.
OK, let me put it this way. I'll admit I'm 6'1", but I've been bald since I was 21.
At 30 I fell in love with this SoCal hottie, and she liked me too. But she's like, "Sweetie, you should use Rogaine and start lifting weights."
My reply: "You should get a boyfiend with hair and big shoulders."
She did! He was a fine lad, lots of hair and big shoulders, and she annoyed the heck out of him as well.
How much will his marathon time improve?
Having femurs 3" longer should make his stride length longer with faster times if he can keep his cadence the same. If it works, i say go for broke and do the same operation on his lower legs.
Will the iaaf allow osteo-doping as a mental TUE?
If you're short and are convinced you can't meet gals because some phrenologist dweeb on YouTube named "200IQ_WomanUnderstander" is spouting off about his chronic inability to get laid, therein lies your problem. It has little to do with your height and everything to do with your terrible, woman- and self-hating world view.
That said, if you feel inclined to surgically intervene upon your shrimpiness, many cultures actually find very long necks sexually desirable, and you're better off slowly pushing down on your clavicle and ribs via neck rings.
Maybe its because I mostly hang out around runners, but I don't think of 5'7 as particularly short. I understand it's below average, but none of my friends around that height range struggle with dating or work. Also in the era of zoom calls instead of in person meetings coworkers and classmates are generally unaware of your height.
Great image, thanks for posting this, grassrunner. I mean it.
I wish I was a baller
