    Proud

    I'm short and I'm proud! I actually love being short. Someone once said, "Nature grows things until they are perfect-Some of us didn't take as long." But, if that quote is true, than my boobs aren't perfect ;) I used to get picked on a lot for being short (I'm 5'2.) but once I've...

    Shortie

    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...

    Apparently I'm short at 5ft 3

    and a half. I'm not as small as a couple of my friends though but I still get dwarfed by pretty much everyone in my year 😂

    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...

    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...

    My friends make fun of me

    because a broomstick works better to get snow off my car than those foot and a half long window scrapers. I have no Shame . I'm 5'3 ", of course I'm going to use something that allows me to reach all the way to the opposite side of my roof and get the snow off with one swipe. I...

    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...

    Well, normally i hate my height.

    im almost 5'2" (1/4" off). I bought a top today that's supposed to be a crop top. the fact that it was a crop top made me not want to get it. i can't wear it to school like that, for starters. also, i just think that looms kind of trashy, especially when im 17. Anyways, im so...

    Ok so for a loooong time I've been thinking I

    was 5'3"1/2 right? And then last night I measured myself to see if I had grown at all even though I knew I probably didn't :P. So I measured myself and I was 5'2"1/2! Now I feel completely short.

    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'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...
