With these traits in mind, remember that height is not necessarily included in a man's "good looks," and with the right amount of confidence, women are sure to look past what you see as a flaw and would be interested in getting to know you.
But if you feel that your height is impeding you from approaching and dating women, here's what you should and shouldn't do.

Dress to impress
If you think you're a dud when it comes to putting yourself together for a night out or for a day at the office, get on the style bandwagon and get to know what's in, what's out, and most importantly, what's you. Read up on the latest in men's magazines.

If you don't trust your taste while shopping, bring along a trusted male or female companion (preferably female; a woman will have more patience accompanying you in malls) for the fashion ride, to help you pick out garments and give you an honest opinion on what looks good and what looks awful.

Most importantly: make sure you feel comfortable in whatever you decide to purchase.

Take the necessary time to groom properly and style your hair in a flattering way, in order to show off your facial features.


Make yourself look taller
There are ways to make yourself look taller or at least flatter your height with the clothes you wear, along the same lines as wearing clothes to make yourself look thinner or larger.

Stay away from:
• cuffed pants
• horizontal stripes
• wide pants
• tweed pants
• double-breasted suits

Opt for:
• straight leg pants (narrow legs) • pinstripes • lightweight fabrics for pants • one-piece suits • single-breasted suits • shoes with a bit of platform (if it's subtle)
