Anyone else have issues winning over family and friends? It's tough enough sometimes getting a date because so many women are biased against short men but trying to win over friends and family is a whole other ball game, especially when they feel like she could have "done better".
I am reminded of a time when I was in high school and I started dating someone on the softball team. Every single one of her friends tried to sway her away from me and fix her up with their athletic and taller friends. While I have the girl and I shouldn't care what people think, it is very frustrating to have to deal disapproval and what it does to the woman I'm seeing. Sometimes even more frustrating when her circle is more approving of men who are below me in every way (i.e. studies, athletics, career, finances, personality, sincerity) except for height.
