In most cultures, taller is a plus for a man, but it's completely overridden in the "looks" department by your muscular development and overall level of fitness. There's nothing you're going to be able to do about your height, but you can look fantastic just by spending an hour a day in the gym. Lee Priest (photo guy) is 5'2", not complaining. ...Read more
