How does it feel like to be an attractive, tall male?

It seems to me that good looking guys have it the best out of anyone. You're more likely to get hired because most HR managers are dumpy, middle aged women, everyone assumes you're confident and likes you, women are constantly throwing themselves at you. In short, your life is probably really easy.

I know a lot of people here think attractive women have it easy but they still have to deal with street harassment, jealousy from other women and creepy leers/gawks/stares. Do good looking guys have any of these problems?
Do you get tons of girls or are they just intimidated by you ?

I am tall and get lots of female attention, so I'm going to say that I am attractive to at least some people. That being said, plenty of other things have made my life difficult. I struggled with depression and anxiety for all of my teen years, was bullied for a while when I was younger, had awful body image up until recently, etc. Although you may not be tall and you may not consider yourself attractive, I promise you are blessed in many other ways. These blessings may just not be as apparent as yours or someone else's physical appearance.

Being short is probably the worst thing a straight man can be.

Think of life as the amount of time you have to be around crazy chicks.

Take that result and by nature give tall attractive guys more time with crazy chicks.

Now you have your result - you think it's sad to be alone because you're short and unattractive, but you're really saving your time away from crazy chick conversations.

I'm a handsome, well spoken, 6'1, 180 pound varsity athlete at a target school. I'm dating the hottest/most desirable girl at my school who is set to be the sole inheritor of her family fortune. I have a full time BB PWM job lined up upon graduation. Life is pretty great on all fronts. Here is my general life advice:

  1. Speaking with confidence and standing up straight is infinitely more important than looks/height.
  1. Constantly focusing on appearance makes you less attractive.
  1. People are drawn to people who are comfortable in their own skin.
  1. Look her in the eye.
  1. A well dressed man will always have the upper hand.
  1. Success comes from making the right decisions the majority of the time, for the majority of one's life.

Being attractive is great: it is much easier to be confident, and shallow girls want to hook up with me, however, my life would be much better if I took more of my own advice.
