    My childhood dream was to be a pilot. Then I found out that I'm about an inch too short. Still no plan B, it was thing I dreamed about systematically 6 years, it was age of 15 about year ago I finally had to admit that I won't grow anymore.

    Plus, its simply unpractical to be short. I need a chair to about everything. Kitchen in my dormitory is made for people noticeably taller than me.

    5'9-6 would be ideal, but well, I cant really help it.
    Ah, I see. That's really tough luck.

    Fwiw, I had an ex who who was 5'11" (maybe taller) and she always mentioned how she wanted to be around your height. I think it's the girls in the middle (5 ft 4, 5, 6, 7) which are least likely to complain.

    I suppose yeah, middle ground seems to avoid all the issues. Looks has nothing to do with my complaints, its purely the practical issues. Looks-wise my lenght is a bit on Short side but could be worse.. But well, hopefully I can figure out an alternstive career . And thank you, its good to hear at least someone finds 5'2 good, I have cried over that many times (well cried over that I cant become a pilot), so it means a lot to me.
