A little person who struggled to find a romantic partner in his 20s because of his height has landed a job as a male stripper.
Shane Belgre, 46, claims he was rejected during his younger days because women weren’t willing to date someone who is 4ft 2in.
He said: "It was hard for me to date girls in my 20s, because people are more superficial at that age and they're more bothered about looks and height and that sort of thing.
"Now I can pick up girls a lot easier because I'm confident and they like my personality.
"I spend my life getting invited to parties. I can do four or five venues on a Saturday night and these are private parties a lot of the time, sometimes they are birthday parties for girls or hen do’s.”

Nowadays, Shane is the one knocking women back as women with fetishes reportedly throw themselves at him.
The dad-of-two first played on his lack of height seven years ago when a pal asked him to strip at a hen night.
Now, the single bloke can make £160 in just half an hour doing a strip tease.
Shane, who is also a personal trainer, says women “go crazy” for his ripped abs.
The dad added: “Occasionally I'll get asked to go on a night out with the lads and just drink with them and party.
"I've had countless opportunities with women but I've got my professional limits."
He continued: "I might give them a kiss but I keep it to just that.
"I've had girls who have dwarf fetishes and I've had brides that even though they getting married weeks later want to have sex with me, but I would never cross a professional boundary.”
Shane claims that lots of men think he has the “dream job” and can’t believe that he won’t sleep with the women.
Since 2013, Shane also DJs at weddings and events between stripping, but his main business is personal training.
He works out five days a week and is in excellent shape.

He said: "People tell me that I'm not the average dwarf and they tell me that I'm hot.
"I don't think they expect me to be in good shape because dwarfs have a propensity to put on weight.
"When I rip my shirt off and then see my abs that's when they go crazy."
Shane also says that people comment on his likeness to Peter Dinklage, the Game of Thrones star who played Tyrion Lannister.
Unfortunately, he’s yet to be booked as a double of the actor.
Shane adds that he used to struggle with his dwarfism diagnosis, but now sees it as a thing that makes him unique.
Plus, the Aussie can charge double what a regular male stripper would make.
He said: "I think I have dealt with my diagnosis very well.
"Of course you have difficult days but I have everything I need and I can do just about anything that anybody else can.
"Life is what you make it."
