Lemme tell you some things about what guys generally think:
-- Short women give off a whole "cute" vibe, which is very attractive to guys. In fact, there are guys that prefer short women instead of tall.
-- The majority of guys like their girls to be shorter than they are. I dunno if it is an intimidation factor or what, but it is pretty common for girls to match with taller guys than they are. The taller you are, the harder it is for you to find a guy from that perspective. My sister, for instance, is 6'0." It may work for an industry like modeling, but it is hard for her to find dudes because she has to find guys around 6'2"+. The pool is more limited.
-- Guys don't necessarily want a model. Trust me when I say that things like "thigh gaps" are incredibly overrated. Girls tend to overrate the importance of them. Generally, guys like healthy girls... Which means not TOO skinny but fit. Considering models can go into unsavory practices that lead them too skinny, I'd be careful about wanting to replicate them too much.
My own thoughts:
-- DON'T GET LIMB LENGTHENING SURGERY. Not only is it pretty dangerous, it is completely unecessary. I bet it would scream to some guys "insecure" if you told them about it as well. It definitely is not a good idea. Short height is NOT bad!
-- I bet there are pictures out there that have a picture of a cute girl on it with "SHORT GIRLS" as the caption. It is a picture of someone with a preference out there. Every dude is different.
-- Height tends to be more of an issue for guys rather than girls (there are psychological studies I can pull up if need be lol). Girls tend to like guys a bit above 6ft. Guys, on the other hand, tend not to be as picky. Just as I've been attracted to taller girls (I'm a little less than 6'4" btw), I've also been attracted to shorter girls too.
I mean, look at Shaquille O'Neal. Think of how tall he is. Think of how many women he could possibly choose from. He's rich, muscular, famous, tall (7'1"), and has a lot of things going for him.
His wife is 5'2." That is shorter than what one considers typical "model height."
So take it from me, you are JUST FINE the way you are. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Be proud of your height and own it. Don't take any tumblr or facebook post seriously. No need to cry! Us guys will like you and attempt to make advances on you either way haha 😉0

Girls should just stop comparing themselves to other girls. We think that all guys prefer long girls, girls with a big ass and big boobs or girls with long hair, or blonde girls, etc. But that's not true. Not all guys are attracted to these types of girls. Embrace your body. The most beautiful thing any girl can have is confidence. And just because society put tall girls in the spot light, does not make being short unacceptable. The only person who can change your opinion about your length is you. You will be a lot happier if you just accepted who you are. Think of the perks of being short. I am short as well, and would not trade it for anything in the world to be tall. I love getting bear hugs from guys, totally disappearing in their arms, I feel completely safe and protected - that for me is one of the greatest perks.0
