8 Struggles With Being A Short Person

You may not agree/relate to all of these or non and that's okay. But these are my experiences. And also I love being short there are a lot of good stuff too but its not all good. Every height is great and they all have their ups and downs.

By the way this is for fun. It's not dead serious and it's not supposed make anyone upset. So if I upset you by this myTake then that wasn't what I've meant to.

    • I always take short girls seriously! they are the perfect hieght to do some real damage! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  • I'm 4'10 I know this pain. Also large crowds at a concert or club can be very problematic and sometimes rough as being so small it's easy to be knocked around in a crowd.

  • Struggles of being a short girl:

    Sometimes somebody makes a joke about you being short and then sometimes you can't reach stuff and then sometimes you can't see over something, tee hee!

    Struggles of being a short guy:

    You will never experience being loved. Eventually suicide seems like the best option.

    • Don't say that.
      How tall are you?

    • I'm a short guy. I disagree that short men will never find love. But I agree that being short is a major disadvantage in dating. Being short also makes it difficult to be seen as an equal by male peers. I'm not surprised that being a few inches shorter than average is a risk factor for suicide. But it is possible to compensate for being short in other ways.

    • Good things come in small packages

  • Iโ€™m short and Iโ€™ve never had to deal with any of these problems. Heightists simply have a fragile ego donโ€™t mind them, just let them know there are always pros and cons when it comes to height.

    • Good for you. How tall are you?

    • I use to be 5โ€™4โ€ but I put on two inches, so now Iโ€™m 5โ€™6โ€.

  • Ok here are pros for you. (Not in order)

    1. More space in planes, cars, bed or any transportation.
    2. You're clothes are cheaper. You can save a lot.
    3. Lot's of guys actually like short girls because they're cute. (Not a pro for guys)
    4. Less likely to bump your head.
    5. You can get protected easier because of your height and you can take advantage of it.

    Because I'm 5'7.5, I'm either too tall or too short so I have mixed problems.

    • That awkward hug is actually my kind of hug tho. Its cute.

    • Okay well I wanted to do a mytake about what's not Good. Ofcorse there are Good things in being short.

  • All the women in my family have been shorter than you. So it seems totally normal to me. If I saw someone 5'0" or less I wouldn't even notice.

    I have no problem "mountain climbing" at the grocery store to get stuff. I scramble right up, grab what I want, then descend to the valley below.

    A couple years ago I found a place that sells 28 length men's jeans. Nobody else sells that length. They are cheap too. So that's where I buy them all now. 28 is still too long, but it's getting close.

    • You Said your voice hasen't change. Have you checked your testerone level?

    • I Think you should check your testerone level because it seams like it's low and then you can get testerone pills from doctors

  • Why would we bend over when we can just shift our eyeballs... Us tall people generally always have to look down for everyone anyway.

  • None of this is a problem I'm 6 ft 4 in tall I tease the shit out of short girls (shirt i general not short compared to me) and somehow they end up being a new friend within 2 or 3 sessions of teasing, that or they think I'm flirting with them in which case I frantically explain to them that they're already in the friend zone

    • Not for you lol.

    • Though I got into a rant about teasing people I forgot to mention that unless it's a so or friend/family I'm pretty protective of personal space so I wouldn't be picking up short girls or resting my elbow on their heads and at the moment of making this comment I have yet to anger a short girl or see one get angry so I can't vouch for thinking it's cute

    • That's Good keep doing so. And you can think we are cute when angry but dont say it lol

  • That's soooo dangerous.

    People also rest drinks on your head.

    • Agree 100% it can be annoying sometimes but I love being short too

    • well at least you dont hit your head on everything ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • 6 and 8 I can relate to lol. I'm same height, 5'2 but where I live and the school I go to, there are a lot of short people, I'm like considered basically average height here lol. Tons of people shorter than me and a couple tall people. I know 5'2 is considered short but I never really believed it cause I've never really felt short lol, sometimes I feel like I'm not actually 5'2. I'm just glad most of the short girl problems that people have don't effect me cause they are super annoying

  • I'm 5'4.5', but I used to be really short as a kid. Doctors estimated that I would end up at around 4'8". Then puberty happened, and apparently had other ideas, and I am quite happy that it did. But I still sometimes feel awkwardly tall, even though I'm technically right around average. Because I was so used to being short. I sometimes wish I was closer to 5'2", that way I wouldn't feel so awkward about my height. It's not actually awkward at all, it just feels weird to me.
