Height Growth

If there were a procedure to make you grow taller safely or maybe a magic pill, how much would you pay?

Not talking about Leg Lengthening as that makes your legs longer. I am talking about perfectly proportioned.

I know women who spent over $30,000 on boob jobs. How much would you pay?

Wish there was an option for $0 on the poll. When you're younger, you wish you were taller yadda yadda. When you get older however, you realize it really isn't all that serious. I've been promoted at my job six times and was already married once and divorced. I am lucky my divorce ended amicably.

Put it this way, you pay $100K to get some height procedure. That's money you could have invested in the stock market, put down on a home or even get a whole undergraduate or graduate degree. 

Why would you "need" to be taller? People will BS when giving an answer, but we all know the real motivation - WOMEN.

If you are LESS than 5'5, then I can see why. If you're 5'5 and up, then you're just shorter than average and there are too many successful men in this range for people to be crying about a couple of inches.

See, and if these people did grow taller, they'd be more of a target for divorce, rape accusations, alimony, child support and they'd be miserable like many of my taller friends who had options galore when it came to women.

The grass is always greener. If you're a man in 2020 and short, you'll realize that you've dodged some major bullet. I've always worked in corporate environments, but you can make millions of dollars from sitting home in front of your computer nowadays. 

The only reason why you should "want" to be taller is if your lifelong dream was to be in the NBA or some nonsense along those lines.

I understand where you're coming from. I'm 45 years old. I don't want or need professional athlete size but yes I would pay to be "magically" taller. I've been rejected plenty of times because of my height. I've been openly ridiculed and mocked because of my height. The ability to live out the remainder of my dating years being able to approach a larger pool of women without the apprehension of "will I be rejected solely because of my height" means a lot to me on an emotional level.

This is fair.

I won't lie and say that it sucks to get jabs at your height, but only because it's the one thing that isn't protected.

As an example, in the corporate environment, making fun of someone's race, gender, body shape if a woman or class will certainly get you fired.

Short jokes? You're expected to take it.

I have a thick skin, and so, as corny as it seems, this does not make me want to be taller. It makes me want to bring the same shame and off-limits to short jokes as the other categories I mentioned.

I know this is an impossible task, but not for the reason you might think it is.

Short is a "man problem". As such, it's not taken seriously because nothing insulting to men is taken seriously.

When you understand this, you can let it go.

With that understanding though, the only way it would be made "off limits", is if enough men made noise about it... and they won't... because men who complain are seen as being "weak".

So here we are.
