I have been a lurker here for almost 3 years. I am straight, but all my life i have felt a strong sense of shared experience with LBGT people because i have always been marginalized & stigmatized just like LBGT people are. I grew up in Alabama in a very homophobic area. I was a suspected homosexual in middle school and high school. I still am often mistaken for a homosexual. I am definitely not LGBT though. I have never in my life found any male more attractive than, say, a donkey. I have been marginalized all my life partly due to my physicality. I am only 5 feet one inch tall. I am ugly. I am 35 years old, and i have never even been on a date! How can someone like me get a girlfriend? I believe if i just wait on fate, i will be single for life. ---------- Post added 29th Nov 2015 at 07:48 PM ---------- Please dont suggest online dating. Those women won't even think about dating a guy as short as me.
