Not sure if this really helps (especially as someone new to the whole pua scene), but as a 5'6 half asian male I've found that yes being smaller does have its shortcomings (pun very much intended). However its not the end of the world. Try dressing differently to make you seem taller. Also, even when i was the worlds biggest AFC I still ended up dating a 6'0 blonde friend of mine who tried out for some next top model show. Just saying dont sell yourself short..... This turned out to be a really pun filled cheesy post.
