Yeah that's a little excessive. Chinese girls usually say guys under 170cm are disabled, 170-175 is short, 176-179 is acceptable, and 180 or taller is good. Given that you can exaggerate a few cm anyway (especially around short girls) it's pretty easy to just say you're 180 if you're almost there. I have noticed a surprising number of 170cm+ Chinese girls though.. but I suppose I only notice the hot ones, so they probably lean toward being taller anyway. Probably can't get away with pretending to be 180+ with them unless you actually are.

Who cares about what Chinese girls say/think/want anyway... lol

Isn’t that like saying the majority of Chinese men is disabled? Must have been a Chinese Becky.
Actually If u r 175cm tall you can eliminate the 'honor' of being disable...Cuz even u r measured 175cm in the morning but u r 177cm or so tall with shoes...3cm is a delicate distance from 177cm to 180cm so that girls will automatically see you as 180cm tall.
If u r 170-174cm tall you can lie to them that u r 175cm tall precisely Cuz of shoes...Still 3cm lies can't be looked through...
Below 170cm as a Chinese he definitely feels short,which entitles Chinese girls to call them 'the disable'...

I don’t feel comfortable disclosing too much personal information, but I can tell you that I live in Northern Europe. Fortunately, I’m still considered handsome and regularly receive compliments about my looks—and, most importantly, I’m married to the woman of my dreams—BUT I still feel super insecure about my height, especially at work. Only two of my male co-workers are shorter than me, and they’re both in their fifties—all others are > 6’2” (unfortunately, I’m not exaggerating). And even though my height is not preventing me from being promoted etc., it simply sucks that all the guys my age are much taller than me.

Just as an additional note, I‘m well aware that many people here on this forum are in a worse position than me and that my height neurosis may seem ridiculous to some of you.
I just dunno why some people had insulted you...Everybody is entitled to do LL as long as everything permits...
And I wanna know until now are you still desiring to do LL?If so,I think your wife won't be pleased because she might think you don't give enough love to her or you won't feel inferior about height.What's worse,this surgery is really costly about time and money.Half yr or even 1 yr far away from her and $50k or $100k or even more from family savings...They won't resent your wife not very much.

It’s weird that standards in China seem to be higher than in many European countries where the average height is much higher. Most women I know just want their partner to be taller than them but don’t have any specific height requirements. I even know a few couples where the woman is taller than the man.

Thanks! I’m still undecided. Although every other aspect of my life is perfect (perfect wife and child, perfect job), I still hate being shorter than almost everyone around me. But I’m fully aware that I’d gain almost nothing from the surgery, except a massive confidence boost (I used to be pretty confident back in my home country but have lost much of my confidence due to being surrounded by giants all the time). I know many users on this forum think I’m crazy, but most of them just don’t know what it’s like to live in a country like the Netherlands.

One major thing you should know about these users is that they do LL for GIRLS.So since you owned a romantic partner there ain't need for you to do LL anymore.Actually that's also my point of view but I think it's necessary to respect everyone's willing.
As for why Chinese girls' standards for boys' heights are higher than European countries..I think that's because of the imbalanced ratio of Chinese males and females..And you know,East Asia culture or something made it important to assess one's appearance,including his or her height.If it weren't for imbalanced gender ratio...I think no matter one is female or male if he or she is short,it'll be hard to get double. :'(

The closest I ever got to height discrimination was my 5'11" friend making fun of the abysmal height difference between us and calling me short.

Where I'm from a lot of men are 185cm and above, they never talk about height. The only people that do are guys less than 183cm who are are only a few cm taller than the people they call short. It always makes me smile as it just exposes their own insecurities about their own height.

I was actually in Amsterdam earlier this year and surprisingly it didn't feel like there were a ton of tall people. It felt like any other European or American city. Maybe it's because I was hanging out in the tourist areas or I was looking for giants and didn't see any. I even rode the train a bunch of times and all the young people on there were just "normal" height, not super tall. Most of the guys were around or under 6' and most of the girls were around my height.

You rate the difference between 5'7 and 5'11 "abysmal"? That's interesting. Not saying you're right or wrong...just that I rarely see this view.

Definitely exaggerating but I did feel really short compared to him and he pointed it out and made me insecure and I was probably more like 5'5.5" or 5'6" flat then

Yeah, Amsterdam is a cultural melting pot with lots of tourists and immigrants. But the further you go up north, the taller people seem to be (especially in rural areas). I have a cousin who is 192 cm, and he keeps telling me that the Netherlands is the only place in the world where he feels bang average.

So, do you believe the difference to be substantial or not? Did you use the word abysmal to get back at him/deflect his insult?

Haha, definitely! :D I miss wearing Converse and Vans Old Skool sneakers. Back in my home country, I used to wear them all the time. Unfortunately, I no longer feel comfortable wearing them.

3.When I was 19 y.o,I was on my way to morning individual study lesson and heard one girl said 'Men under 180cm are disable!'.
Lately I was refused by my gf's mother because I was too f**king short to inherit good genes,which bothered me most that I wanna do LL! :'(

Bro, modern women are fked up. Even if I was Brad Pitt I wouldn't date them. Once you understand their mindset and subconscious it's hard to still believe in love. It's all primal instincts. Pretty pathetic. I wouldn't want to date a monkey just because it looks good and finds me attractive. I turned asxxual last year. Maybe it's my brain self defense mechanism kicking in because it knows dating would be a waste of time. I no longer feel anything. I am free. It's pretty cool.

I'm to bring back these tragedies and it doesn't mean I'm still immersed in them.
1.When I was 12 y.o,I was on my way to hand in my homework to my teachers waiting in the queue across the teacher's office then.What was next was my classmates' laughing at my short height and then asking how much was height.I went into silence and felt upset.
2.When I was 13 y.o,I was on the stairs up to the lecture platform to hand in my homework.While I was waiting for the queue moving standing one of the stair,one of my classmates laughed at me because I was still shorter than him when setting foot on the stair and that stair was thick.That year I was again laughed by 14-15 y.o girls when participating in the flag-raising ceremony because I was shorter than them by one head.
3.When I was 19 y.o,I was on my way to morning individual study lesson and heard one girl said 'Men under 180cm are disable!'.
Lately I was refused by my gf's mother because I was too f**king short to inherit good genes,which bothered me most that I wanna do LL! :'(

At 5.11, even if you are 2 inches less than average (although I don't know any country with an average height of 6.1), you still have a respectable height.
5.5 is pretty average for India but it is short worldwide for a man so there are plenty reasons to do LL. So being completely average in your town is not so important to have something so massive like LL when your height is very good for a man generally. Especially when just an "owner" mentioned that high ceilings are not important for you which is something normal but only someone with major height complexes would think as something bad.

So, at 5.11 and with a wife it is really stupid to do LL. You have only to lose. However it is completely up to you to risk for nothing.

It' doesn't feel average man. Maybe in villages or a few states. In every major city, the average height is like 5'9-5'10. India is as heightist as the US if not more.

That's a little aggressive.You dont have to do this cuz you can think about which of an ugly female fatty and a beautiful female supermodel you will choose and then that's why girls ain't inclined to us short men.But in fact I've actually fallen into love for twice in all.Now I'm drowned in the second love so not every girl is superficial as much as you thought unless you two just wanna make love with each other and that'll necessarily need you to be tall and handsome.When it comes to marriage,there is other necessities than height although you shouldn't still be too short.
In my country,girls are more money-oriented than Caucasian countries' so if you could earn a hellva money then girls may neglect your short.

That's my and my parent's fault.My father bought me a computer when I was 5 y.o and he was positive to bring me to Internet cafe where he was working in my childhood.I was being immersed in computers games and even erotic videos and games,thus,I had lacked growth I needed.I was prone to skipping meals in that time.Porn,non-meal,non-execrise,childhood depression and deficiency of parent's cares of my physical and mental health leaded to my being very very short.

Yes bodybuilder u are absolutely right weight has a lot to do with being manly....yeah i know height is necessary but even in scandanivia above 6.4 or 6.5 is rare and i don't there is much difference between 6.4 or 6.5 considered u are nearly 6 ft.....and most of the L size cloths fit u well coz of ur body length....but there is a very big difference between a below 5'8 and a 6ft person....coz tht's from short to tall.
