  • At 4'11" I believe you're legally classified as a midget. You may qualify for various forms of government assistance. Check it out.

    • Midget? Lol I don't think so. I'm very short but I function normally, getting s job is a problem for me but other than that is normal. Heels can help a lot lol

  • 5 feet 5 inch is almost average height in most Asian countries. Arabs, Americans and people from part of USSR countries are taller, but most south and south east Asians are not so long. Your height might be considered a bit less than average - about 3 or 4 inch. Help him to over come this feelings.

  • It can depend on both ethnicity and where you live. I live in the U.S., am 5'6, and considered short.

    Your profile says you are in the Philippines. According to this link 5'6 is above average height for a male.

  • I'd say it's just below average. Average male height for Americans is 5'9".

    I'm 5'6" too and my fiancée is 4'8". Our size fits us perfectly.

    • Nope. He is Caucasian. He lives in Australia.

    • then he is just about 3 inches below average male's height which is 5'9". he is not a midget though why he thinks he is short?

    • Because he is shorter than his friends

  • Does him being 5'6'' bother you? If so, how much? You're only 4'11'' so I would have thought you would be fine with it.

    • It doesn't bother me but it does bother him. Lol he always say 'I'm short, I'm short' lol

  • I'm 5'6 or so, pretty much always been the shortest of guys from my own generation. Does it really matter though? It's not like he's inconvenienced by his length.
