How about 1. Too short for society? 2. Too short for guys. Whenever I'm around guys I feel so tiny and silly tho

Ok so 1, if someone was 2 foot and looked 50, they will still be accepted into society, however people defo gives second looks which are judgemental. You are not too short for society, people may look for a bit but thats it. And no you aren't too short for guys, I wouldn't mind a 4"6 girls, my ex was 4"9 and im 5"11. You think other people are judging you, but more than often it is the case they aren't: YOU are judging yourself and therefore think others are doing the same. There will sometimes be snide comments yh but more often than not it just bants. I know its cliche but im gonna say it anyway: it is not what you are dealt, it is how you deal with it; acknowledge the uncontrollable, address on the controllable.

wouldn't bother me. Height is height. But your positivity, strength, personality and overall You is awesome.
Ignore those who doubt you and focus on being the best you can be.

You can't help your size, the right people wouldn't judge you on your height. Just think of some comebacks about them, hopefully it'll get them to shut up.

You are very short and I'm sure you know that. But so what? It's not like it's something you can change. If anyone judges you because of your height then that's on them, not you.

its pretty short - but it won't make much of a difference.

you say is it 'too short'? to short for what?

Is it too short to be good at some sports.. yeah, but unless you want to be an athlete that doesn't matter.
is it to short for some jobs.. no.
is it to short to be happy/make friends/travel etc.. no.
is it to short to find a boyfriend - no, there are plenty of guys who are fine dating shorter girls. Especially shorter guys.

Seriously, go find a guy who is like 5'4'', and you and him will be perfect. He will feel amazing dating a girl so much shorter then him, it will make fim feel very tall/good about himself... and you can date a guy where you don't need to jump to kiss them, and you don't look like their kid in public.

(this happened to me when dating a girl who was under 5', and just the other day I saw a really tall guy with, what from behind looked like a child, only to then kiss them passionatly, I was confused until they turned around and she was clearly his very short girlfriend.)

I am 4'9. My mom is about your height or perhaps a tiny bit shorter. Even with her usual high heels, she barely reaches my height. She's the shortest in our family and often the shortest in any room she walks into. But she had never let that bother her. She got top marks in her exam and was the best student in her school which was the most prestigious school in her state back in her days. She quit college to help out with my parents business and people in the circle respected her for her reputation of being an expert negotiator. She quit work when she married my dad and even earned the respect of my dad's social circle.

Perhaps we're from an Asian country where people are generally shorter but even at 4'9, I am considered short. I was still popular at school (until I left for homeschool when I was 12), I was a prefect, a monitor's assistant for several years before that, played sports (which I failed at but even then I didn't get teased for my height) and had a passion for martial arts. I remember getting teased when I was perhaps 6 or 7 but once I stopped caring about my own height, people do too. I did get bothered by it in my mid teens because while everyone kept growing to their late teens, I stopped at 13 (I'm 23 now) but really, it doesn't cause me any problems. Sometimes people comment on it and call me 'cute' or 'adorable' just because I'm short and I rarely wear any sort of high heels but they're rarely meant as an insult even if it is misguided. Take it as you will.

it shouldnt matter tbh. what matters is who you are as a human being and im sure youre a great person so whatever your height is, it doesnt define you.
