The OP made the point that if women use push-up bras (padded bras, etc.) then he has a legitimate right to wear shoes that make him look taller. Seems fair to me. But as soon as I read his post, I knew there would be the nay-sayers, such as:

The latter post supports the OP but denies the possibility that his improved results are due to appearance of being taller (must be "confidence" or whatever). But if you weren't there or don't know the people involved, it would be more intellectually honest not to jump to any conclusions. It is well known that men are not the only people who are capable of judging potential sex partners by physical appearance (even though it may not be politically correct to acknowledge that).

Believe me when I say that I haven't changed anything about my approach or personality. It's the shoes. You can argue about how it must be "confidence" or "w/e" but I am old enough to know that its all about my height (I an 30 now). When I put the shoes on and meet people I get treated with a little more respect and many ladies give me the opportunity to talk, not to say I am a super male model or something but my odds have definitely been adjusted and my success rate has increased with a lot of stuff. Sure I will annoy people when I take them off like I said about that one woman but I too get annoyed when the foundation or stomach belt comes off on the woman. I got tired of watching everybody else have fun. Why can't I have any? Guess what now I am.

No possibility was denied just bringing up the possibility of confirmation bias in ascribing results. But who knows...? I broke a mirror the other day and I am still working off the 7 years of bad luck. It would not have happened but I spilled salt at the dinner table unexpectedly and forgot to use the proper warding gesture. So feeling that something bad was going to happen caused me to peer too closely into the mirror and it shattered from the reflected image in it.

Perhaps he's "tall" in other ways.

I would get conversation on online dating sites and then women would disappear once I told them I was 5'6 (really 5'6 3/4 Hehe). Then I figured that women wear push up bras, makeup, heels and stomach belts (or w/e you call em), so why not try elevator shoes. What a difference! When I go out women don't shoot me down right away and let me talk. I have had more sex than I could believe and women want to date me! Only one made a nasty comment how she felt she was cheated when I took my shoes off and I told her how us men feel cheated when the wonder bras and foundation came off and I still slept with her. All I needed was a way in, and now I've got it!
Its strange how only an inch or two makes a difference. I can already imagine the replies after that sentence, LOL. Im 5'8 and I have never had a problem like you mentioned. It does seem like a lot of women want men that are taller, or sometimes much taller than they are.
