    Giving everything to my girlfriend

    and yet being an option hurts to the core.She says she don't love me but want to see me happy and this shows she just cares. Maybe i would be stuck on her head like her exes only if i looked as good as they did and as tall they were.. no body loves a 5.1 lol

    Short ladies, we are lucky

    because we habe more options to choose from and plus most men are taller than us anyways. We get to be picked up and carried unlike tall ladies. I'm 5ft

    Well I'm average height

    which is 5'4 and I wish I was a bit taller but being this height has it's perks. We attract a lot of men. My boyfriend is 6'5 and he LOVES my size

    I'm 4'10 and 15. This can be tough on male.

    I stand tall and don't let it bring me down. I want to be taller when I am older.

    I could be short but remember

    if you got on my nerves I'd easily punch you on your nuts. Keep it on your mind.

    Vertically challenged

    as I'd like to put it. But I love my size. I love my height. I love the feeling when a man stands close and towers over me. I love the strength I feel under my fingertips when I'm lifted up. I love the dominance I feel when he raised up, kneeing between my thighs.

    I absolutely love being short

    and I love how tall my man is because I can wear any size heel and he is still taller than me. Being short makes me feel cute and feminine. I think when was younger I wanted to be taller but now I'm grateful for my height.

    Take It All In Stride.

    I'm a whopping 5 feet and 2 inches! I don't really mind much. The only time it "bothers" me, is when things are high up on shelves. Shopping can sometimes be tricky if I can't find someone tall to reach things for me. You'd be suprised at how many time I've been yelled at by...

    I'm not short but you short ladies shouldn't be

    complain because men prefer shorter petite women. Most other women told me I'm so lucky to be tall but they have no idea how tough tall women have. We intimidate men, shopping is a nightmare and plus we don't get dates easily like short women. I'm 5'10 and I would love to be 5...

    It's bad enough being a full grown adult

    and not being able to sit in most chairs properly without my feet dangling, but this ******* bench I'm sitting on right now is the worst. It slopes up at the edge of the seat and that lifts my feet even higher off the ground than they normally would be.

    Success is the best revenge

    short. I walk into a room and the subtext is short. Women pat me on the head. Men think they can mess with me and they do. Not because they are good or smart, but because they are taller. My boss  regularly, openly  ridicules  me for being short. Makes fun of the...

    I'm 4'9," petite & 103 pounds.

    In my opinion this isn't a bad thing, if I can't reach something I use a step stool or wear hidden wedge platform sneakers so that I'm 5ft tall. The only time being this small sucks is when your bigger husband is abusing you and your too small and weak compared to him to fight...

    We attract a LOT of tall men.

    I guess that's a good think about being short. My 6'3 boyfriend loves my 4'9 stature. My tall frends get jealous because tall men ignore them but attract short men.

    I'm short even compared to other short people.

    I am an adult male that stands at only 4"7. I think any time I am around someone who is 4"8 to 5"4 they mention something about how I make them feel tall or how they are so happy not to be the shortest person around anymore. Lol like"wow, glad I could help you out with that...
