    5'4" on a real good day.

    The only thing that gets me down is my height because I'm 22 and I know I won't grow any more. So yea, it's been a bit difficult to get a girl. I'm one of those "I wish I was taller" type. I'd be content with 5'8" lol. Just saying....

    I would love to go out with a really tall girl

    one day. I'd like to see the looks on people's faces as they see us holding hands. I wonder what they'd think.

    This is my current thought in my daily life.

    I'm like a midget but that doesn't bother me because people find me cute and adorable. The problem is that there's a world up there that I'd never have the chance to know. I keep my hopes that one day I'd past my 5'ft weight.

    I'm 4'10 and 21 years old.

    ... I get mistaken for a young teen, jokes and cutesy compliments from strangers, all the time. I wish I was just 5'4, that would be better.

    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...

    Short women and girls have it so easy. They have an easier time getting men and they get the tall and sexy good-looking/average men. I'm 5'11 and it sucks. Guys and men avoid me and I wish I was like 5'4 or 5'1. Shorter guys hit on me and it stinks because tall. I don't know why...

    Hi all! So, as most of you know..I'm short. I always have been. I stopped getting taller at maybe...age 12? All of 5'1 tall. ^_^ Now, I love my height. I love that most guys make me feel really small. I like that I can get piggy back rides and be carried to bed. I like that I'll...

    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 about 5'1" in the mornings,

    so for the rest of the day until nighttime, I'm barely even 5 feet. It's one of those things that I've just ended up learning to accept. Being short has its advantages and disadvantages, just as tall people do. Sure, it would be nice if I didn't have to make a miracle leap for...
