I have been trying to become a better PUA for the last year and have improved a lot reading material here and on the web. However there is an issue that I am still struggling with. Its the pride/esteem attached to some limiting beliefs (as I think they are) at times.
I am of Indian ethnicity (but no where near the stereotype that is portrayed). I might say I am above average looking (have been called handsome by girls often) but I am 5'6'' (168 cm) and average build.
Both being of Indian background and shorter than the average man has been a hurdle before but I have overcome it mostly and usually I have no problems with that. I have had a GF who was 6' tall and a HB9 who was Caucasian.
However sometimes I have issues with other guys (taller and muscular than me) who bring up me being short or average build by trying to make a joke of it.
Recently one guy jokingly said in a crowd where there was a target "where is your ass, u dont really have on". I just said in return "stop looking at my ass dude".
They do it especially in front of other women that they might be targeting as they clearly see me as a threat. Some even pick me up to show they are big (physical intimidation to put me down in other women eyes). Now, usually this does no affect me much, but I have noticed lately that women might subconsciously think I am an unsuitable mate given the presence of bigger taller and muscular men than me.
How do I deal with comments that are based on my physicality and how do you deal with guys who pick you up to show off ?
Thanks guys !
