I'm 21, and I luckily got into an alright university.
I'm a Korean living with a height of 158cm... It's so hard.
A lot of people tell me "short guys can date too!"
but the sad thing is if you look up on the Internet, most of the girls say that they won't even talk to guys who are below 167...
I know that I shouldn't pay too much attention on what I see on the Internet but each time I find a post like that...
I'm a human too and I want to date like the rest of you too! Yeah, I really hope that I can do that...
Anyways, I'm just sad...
But what's even sadder is not even the relationship part but the fact that it affects my whole life.
First of all, I sacrificed a lot in school. I enthusiastically helped people around me but no one calls me to go out with them on vacation.
I don't know what I did wrong but when I was working at school, the TA came to see me and told me to stop working and rest instead.
I don't want to blame it on my height for making me want to help others and for them to rely on me, but I can't help but feel that way.
It's so tiring to live like that
Even though I like someone, that person will hang out with the majority of girls who prefer taller people. And I will just stay in pain..
You guys know how hard it is to try to forget someone you like a lot right..?
I dream at least twice per week about walking while holding hands with someone...
Now, I can say that I've reached a point where I know that I will never meet someone who will love me back and that I've lost all my confidence but... I don't want to live thinking like that... ㅠㅠ
