Because of this, you need to maximize your attractiveness in other ways (get in serious shape, dress well, be confident) and seek less desirable women (older, heavier). Online dating might still be difficult, but it's your best bet at a large dating pool outside the hospital as a resident.
If you are still not dating anybody (and especially if your "friends" are snubbing you for party invitations), there is something else really wrong. Try to get someone you know in real life to be brutally honest with you about it.
I do not even know how to characterize your post. Let's just break it down a bit:
1)Being a short guy is a lot like being a fat girl, except you do not get taller with alcohol.
-no. Even in usa, and much more so, in the rest of the world, a guy is not defined by his looks. You might argue that being a short guy is like being a fat guy. Although even in that case, fat guys tend to be less energetic and less virile than short guys.
2) seek less desirable women (older, heavier).
-what kind of nonsense is this? I understand that a lot of people have unrealistic expectations. But seeking older, heavier women?? Did you waste your youth, take mcat, step1,etc so you could spend your $$ on old, heavy women?
3) If you are still not dating anybody, there is something else really wrong.
-So you should date an older, heavy woman so that your "friends" who are dating older, heavy women wouldn't think there is something wrong with you? I for one thing that if you were able to finish medical school, you're all right. Spend your money wisely and get a playboy calibre woman from east europe.
