I say you should wear 2 inch lifts, then you'll be a solid height. Build some muscles, and fix your teeth/veneers, and then you should be good to go. Spray tan, nice cologne, nice clothing, and get a nice hairstyle. Maybe put in a stronger jawline if that's weak but that's about it.


But personally I don't find guys attractive until 6'3, so a 5'10 guy is pretty average-boring to me that's why it's a factor to me.

But here's the thing...you've got one woman here telling you that one of the standards is height. You've said that some people in your circle (acquaintances and family) have said you're ugly. To me, that's a pretty small sampling.

And you haven't really defined what in your mind would make you more attractive to yourself or to anyone else.

I can almost guarantee you that if you consulted with a surgeon and asked to be made more attractive, a good surgeon would ask what you want done.

I'm definitely not advocating the surgical route. Particularly at the age of 19. Your looks are very likely going to change and not just by the simple act of aging. And the people you meet and interact with in life will change too.

I don't really want to resort to wearing lifts, I don't really feel short or anything. I'm taller than the average height for men which is 5'9. I don't want to add more things to be insecure over. Also, since I'm only 19 there's a chance that I could grow taller in the future. My teeth are already white and straight, my dentist told me that I had straight teeth during my last appointment. Also, I have a collection of different colognes and body sprays that I always use when I go out, I always make sure that I smell good when I go out. I'm black so I'll probably never need a spray tan, lol. Also, I think I already do dress really well and my hair is never unkempt. I'm currently working on getting more in shape though so hopefully that'll help.

I realize that a lot of women like tall men, but I'm not really that tall so that's out of the window for me. I don't think I'm tall enough for my height to be considered attractive but I'm just thankful that I'm not short. There are many things that I think would make me more attractive (a lot of them are out of my control) but maybe getting work on my jawline like the other poster suggested would help. My plan was to save up for the next 5-10 years and get the surgery if I saw no improvements in my appearance in that time frame. I just don't want to take it and not do anything about it. I want to do anything that I possibly can to make myself look better, especially because I have only one life to live and I want to live the happiest life possible while I'm still here.

Life Experience: An endearing friend had to have plastic surgery...eye socket and her cheekbone due to a car accident. Did it help her? Absolutely! So I don't bash plastic surgery...I've seen how its corrected incidences.

Some folks have reasons to correct a malformity.

Get a few consults and go from there. I personally have seen some lives transformed in a good way from having such surgery done.

No offense, but a tall ugly guy is better than a short handsome guy. That's me though, but I could never date a guy less than 6'1. Like that's not me. But I'm sure most women aren't like that. So looks don't matter to me that much... just height. I got heightism to a capacity that is unreal... even money can take a hike if he's 5'7.


So I guess appreciate that you're not short (but a lot of women probably prefer a shorter handsome man like Kanye West or Tom Cruise versus a tall ugly man). I'm not Kim Kardashian or Nicole Kidman. I couldn't date either of those guys, like eww.


Yeah, I don't know, I can't judge if you're ugly or not, I was visualizing some geeky glassed acne-ridden pasty 5'5 man....

Don't add height as another problem unless you go to the Netherlands. Then you be like two inches shorter than those men.

Oh, and I don't like guys being better looking than me either, ahahaa.

You must be rather young, because as you get older, looks become insignificant.

Men do not need to be handsome to be attractive to the opposite sex, you just need to act as though you are. I have seen this time and again.

Before you do go for a plastic surgery consult, (because a plastic surgeon can always find something to nip or tuck), check with an image consultant, or someone along those lines. Heck, you could just need a great haircut, lose a few pounds, get a tan, wear different clothes, and you might look better already.

Do people say that you are hideous, homely, or what?? I think that it is pretty cruel (if you are so afflicted) to say this to your face. Even if you look like Quasimodo (the hunchback of Notre Dame), you can still work on becoming the very best person that you can be, spiritually, physically, and mentally.

I have given you two important points:

(1) Upgrade your image

(2) Work on becoming a better you

I agree. The beard looks like the illustrations of King Nebuchadnezzar in the Old Testament. No too nifty an image to emulate!!

Yes, if it's limited to a certain feature that may be throwing things off. Trying to look younger rarely works.
