Shorty

Girlfriend - - GF FEELS -

“I’m only 170 cen­time­tres, which is re­ally short for a guy. I’m ba­si­cally the short­est guy in my grade and even half the girls tower above me. I feel like I look like their younger brother when I stand next to them. Also, when you ask ev­ery girl what sort of guy they like, they al­ways say ‘tall’. I’d se­ri­ously give any­thing to be tall. And the worst part is there’s noth­ing I can do about

it. I was al­ways hop­ing I’d have a mas­sive growth spurt, but my dad is also re­ally short, so I sort of knew that was un­likely. I feel like peo­ple don’t take me se­ri­ously be­cause of my height. You’ve heard of ‘small man syn­drome’, right? Well it’s def­i­nitely a thing. I’m al­ways trying to prove that I’m tough at rugby and I’ve also re­cently started box­ing as well. That’s given me a lit­tle bit more con­fi­dence be­cause be­ing short is OK for box­ing.” – Us­man, 18.
