hi.. watch this please
hopefully it gives you hope
look at Judge Judy. I know she's a popular television star, but go way back in the early 90's when she was a high position judge in brooklyn for real. watch the videos.
she's about your height and size, yet she was more intimidating than all the men in the court she faced combined.
My wife is 4'10" and is one of the most confident people I know. She's from the Philippines, so her height is a lot more average than it would be here in the US. I'm 6'2" tall, so we sometimes look like father and daughter from a distance instead of husband and wife.
She doesn't let her height get in her way, and never has. She believes in herself and uses that confidence to win people over. They may eye her dismissively to begin with, but those who spend even a little time around her quickly reassess their opinions of her. She's in her 40s now, but still has the body of someone in her early 20s. Also, as recently as two years ago she was carded before she could buy lottery tickets in a local grocery store. At her age, she was grateful to be considered under the age of 18 and actually thanked the clerk who carded her.
Things will get better over time, so just use this time to enjoy your youth and begin to build the character you'll need to get you through your adult years. Keep your chin up, your back straight, and never lose faith in yourself because you're a woman full of potential who can have a very successful life if you want. My wife's proof of that.
Being cuter than average in no way relates to how seriously people take you. You can be tiny and a badass or tall and a weakling, don't let your size(and thus, how easy you are to carry or how pretty you look) tell you otherwise. Look at it as a feature more-so than a defining trait.
Alright smalls listen close: tiny, petite girls are the BEST so don't ever hate on your stature. Second, your physical size as a woman is not what commands seriousness, it's your presence, your confidence, and body language. So hold yourself up with pride and speak like you own the place. Finally, any person who gives you crap about your size is small in their mind and you deserve to be around much more respectful people so don't let them get to you :)
im only 5' as well. I have been told that I carry myself like someone that is 6 foot. the way to get people to take you seriously is to dress like a adult and your attitude is everything.
Honey, men are most attracted to a confident woman...it's not your size or shape...it's all about how you carry yourself...I'm sure you're a gorgeous female...just accept the way you are and make the most of your petite size...it does make for some fun under the sheets...teehee...
my brother is over a foot taller than his wife and she's only 2 inches taller than you, she also gets called a pixie all the time and cute blah blah blah. for a lot of guys that's EXACTLY what there looking for
What is wrong with being short? NOTHING AT ALL.. Most women are short and us guys like short women so don't worry k BE MORE CONFIDENT IN YOUR SELF trust me you can be short but if you have CONFIDENCE it's all good
what's wrong with being a little doll, I love girls like that!
Nothing wrong with being short. I think it has to be more how you act and talk than what you look like. At first glance they might see you as being really cute and small but if you have a good conversation with them they will see you as an adult
lol a lot of short girls are like you, and go through the same thing around your age. You are struggling to be seen as a woman. How you are seen will be how you carry yourself. Some girls collapse inwards and hide in their shell and are unable to face life and get treated like a kid. Others get really bold and overly aggressive trying to be seen and get treated like they have a napoleon complex. If you avoid the extremes and are intelligent and assertive, then you will be taken seriously. Don't worry a lot of guys like short girls.
I find myself attracted to both short girls and tall girls. Actually this girl I like right now is only slightly taller than you and really cute looking. You should take cute as a compliment, not all girls are cute. No, you'll never be a supermodel, but that's okay, plenty of men are still attracted to you.
It's more about your attitude than your height. In my work place there are a few very short women who are also confident, like to lead and present themselves in a serious way. No one gives them any disrespect at all. And there's this tall girl who is too sweet and gentle for her own good, she doesn't know how to stand up for herself, and people take advantage of her and treat her like a child. It's about your personality more than anything.
"They've been sayin I was short all my life!"- KH lol. But I know how you feel and some of my family members. We get carded alot, I get mistaken for a lost child at the grocery store a many of times. I don't really let it bother me. People usually think the same of me and I'm even a boxer but look at the brightside. They let us smaller girls get away with a lot especially if you get in trouble or need help for something.
A lot of the girls where I am from are around your height. I'm taller than most of my girl friends, and I'm 5"4'; however, when I go other places, I feel like the girls there are at least 5"6'. If you're looking for a job or just want to look older: heels, make-up (done properly!), and use big words. As for the boy department- there's a plethora of men who think short girls are really cute. They say they like to pick them up and cuddle... I'm a girl who likes guys so I wouldn't know.
I am short too. Not as short as you, but in the Dutch community where I live, 5'4 is considered borderline midget. Everyone else is 6'0-7'0 with 6'4 being the running average.
Anyway, my boyfriend treats me like a little kid too even though I have him by 2.5 years. He has me by 13 inches. As long as you stay mature and intelligent they soon learn to respect your opinion though. It also helps if you are physically able to keep up with them. It's harder for us short ones, but I made it through a training camp with my entire high school football team (all 6'0+ and outweighing me by about 200 lbs) and I even beat a majority of them in the speed, agility and even some of the strength activities. And yes, I beat them since each activity was an individual one. And I'm no giant. I' 5'4 and weigh 113 lbs.
It bothers me that the tall ones automatically assume us short ones are weak and delicate. I'm going into Criminal Justice for goodness sakes! One would think I would be able to handle my own.
Anyway, just ignore them and sooner or later they'll learn to respect you. Some may never respect you or see you how you want to be seen, but that's when you just show them up :) Good luck!
