Short men are screwed when it comes to dating, right?

The more you let your height (or lack thereof) bother you, the less attractive you get.The trick is understanding how to make height less of an issue.Seem like a tall order One of the worst things that guys can do to themselves is to get defensive about being short.Prior to this time of peace, many Japanese felt that becoming a soldier was the only approach to becoming manly.This social norm has slowly disappeared during the following period of post-war peace.According to Fukasawa, herbivore men are "not without romantic relationships, but have a non-assertive, indifferent attitude toward desires of flesh".The philosopher Masahiro Morioka defines herbivore men as "kind and gentle men who, without being bound by manliness, do not pursue romantic relationships voraciously and have no aptitude for being hurt or hurting others."
