As far as I'm concerned, this entire thread is opinion, and that's OK.

So you're saying you can look like a normal grown male at 5'6 and under? Bobbleheads everywhere man... It looks comical being this size. There is no doubting that working out makes short guys look more "normal" if they do it properly (sometimes can end up looking worse if they go overboard).

Still this is your opinion.
I showed him to my gf only asking him if he good looking (without mentioning his height) and she said he is ok, not ugly but not handsome either.
So no, not only a minority would reject him and not only for his height.

So saying things as a fact while it is only your personal opinion is not very clever.
The fact is that men beyond average are not as attractive as above average, all other things equal. Yes, at 1.75 you have a respectable height and if you are fit with a good face you are not going to have many problems with maybe the majority of women.
That said, if you have all the above and an 1.85 height you'll be exactly what any woman wants. So yes, being acceotable from the majority of women to being almost ideal for the vast majority of women has a big difference.
And almost no man with an 1.75 height is ideal for the majority of women, even if he is perfect in anything else in his appearance.

It's better to be 180cm than 175cm for sure, but I think you are projecting your own goals onto your posts. You have your own goals and are chasing them. That's fair enough. You seem to be in environments where looks are the overwhelming factor and you want the most beautiful women you can get. I get that.

However, many guys shorter than 5'8 and 5'9 just want to have a chance with taller women, but for romantic relationships. For shorter guys, it's hard to even get to that point, as a huge chunk of women will reject you before anything can start or finish (marriage and kids). I truly believe the man I posted would have no problem with most women if he was looking for romantic relationships. He's not short, has the swimmer's physique, seems to be outgoing. He wouldn't be ideal in clubs, but I can't see him getting rejected on looks alone if he's also talking to someone interested in a relationship. It'd take other things for a woman to cross him off. Maybe he's not ideal, but he's good enough.

Everyone has good opinions here guys. My situation is very similar to Bodybuilder's due to the fact that I am about 175 cm right now and am still seen by most as below average. At my peak fitness level I was about 185 lbs, all muscle. Sure there were some girls that thought I looked good, and some guys that thought I was "huge" but there were also a lot that described me as "short and stocky". I have recently leaned out a little bit to give the impression of being taller. As shorter guys, we are always seen by many as compensating for our height. Once I reach my new height (5'11), I believe I will look very proportional as long as I maintain a strong upper body. Having wide shoulders will be essential to look like someone who is naturally this height. It is all about improving your own situation. I think someone who is starting at 5'9 and going to 6' will gain just as much confidence as someone going from 5'6 to 5'9. Both are very significant improvements for 2 different individuals.

You want to be taller and are in that process. Good, and again, best of luck.

This Drew Lynch guy has an identical build and similar phenotype to Jeff Nippard. This is what Jeff Nippard would really look like if he had never began working out.





In a lot of photos, even in sunny California, he is wearing bomber jackets in attempts to make his shoulders look less narrow.
