Am I too small to find a wife?

DEAR DEIDRE: I’M so short and baby-faced that women my own age treat me like one of their kids. But I’m looking for love with a mature woman.

I’m a 43-year-old guy and only 5ft 3in. They say “size doesn’t matter” but that’s a lie.

When I go up to women in the pub they patronise me, or even laugh. I’ve tried dressing smartly but it doesn’t help.

The only girls interested in me seem to be about 20 – and that’s far too young. We’d have nothing in common.

I’m starting to get really frustrated and depressed by this. There’s ­nothing I can do about my height.

Why won’t these women give me a chance?

Maybe I’m too short to ever find love.

DEIDRE SAYS: Not being tall shouldn’t stop you finding love. Not all women want a tall guy and many don’t care.

Perhaps you’re coming across too keen, or going for women you find attractive, rather than those you have something in common with.

Ditch the pub as a dating destination and be open to meeting women through activities that interest you.

My support pack, Finding The Right Partner For You, should help.
