    Yes I Am

    I'm only 5'0. People sometimes tell me that I'm so short. I honestly don't care though. Growing up I had always wanted to be tall, but now I love being short. I have heard that a lot of guys seem to like short girls. Is this true? Any short people in this group who would...

    I'm travel size. I'm 19

    and 5ft and I love it. Mostly because I'm the master at hide and seek and I can still fit under the kitchen sink.

    It seems like everyone I know is a lot taller

    than me and I have to look up to talk to them. I admit I'm self conscience about my height. The last time I was at the doctors I was 5'1. I don't think I will be getting any taller. I'm thankful for heels!

    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...

    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...

    Not A Problem... Usually.

    I'm 17, and since I'm five foot one and have -ahem- girlish features (yes, I do mean small boobs) I look around twelve or thirteen. Normally, when it comes to the retail environment, that's not a problem--I just get a step stool, no biggie. But... I work in a store that happens...

    Reality Check

    I never realized how differently the world treats short people until I got my first job. I was home-schooled, and the rest of my family is also short, so I was used to being taller than average for the groups I hung out with. I was shocked when people at work acted as if I were...

    It's true. I am not a tall person.

    I stand (no pun intended) at an amazing 5'6". I used to wish that I was taller when I was younger. Even sometimes I admit that I have those same feelings when interested in taller women. All of my exes with the exception of one was the same height as me. The last one was around...

    over an inch in the past 7 years and I am 19 now so I'm not likely to grow any taller. I don't mind it! It can be fun, I can go and fit into places that some can't, and I can sneak around and go unnoticed very easily if I want to. Also I have a broader range of fellas to choose...

    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...
