Being "vertically challenged", as my husband puts it, is a pain in the rear sometimes.
the other day i was at the grocery store and something was way up on the top shelf and back a little. i usually can climb and reach it, but i looked around before climbing and saw there was this tall man right there, so i said "excuse me mister tall man! can you get that for me?" he was more than happy to and we both got a laugh out of it. i hope i didn't offend him by calling him 'mister tall man'!

i have always liked being short but sometimes it can be a pain. i'm 5'2". to the OP, if i were you i'd just take the compliment and smile.

I'm short, and sometimes it bugs me that I'll never feel or be seen as elegant, beautiful, etc. I get "cute" a lot. I suppose it's better than nothing, though.

I walked by the Seagals (the Seattle Seahawks' cheerleaders) at an event and they were all like 5'10".

At least I don't call you "stump."

Yes, you are beautiful. And classy. Can't forget classy.

because babys are adorable and babies are small.

but my bf would always call me adorable and I'm 5'5... which is average or a little above average height.

small features like baby's are adorable too. -though/but, my features are all very medium. so, idonno. not always just short women I guess

My wife of 31 years is 5'2. I'm 6'5. We're called adorable all the time when we're together.

I'm under 5'. I've been called many things because of my height--cute, tiny, peewee, little, shorty, etc., etc. I don't think I've every been called "adorable" by anyone except my spouse. Perhaps it's because I project a seriousness many times.

I've heard every short joke and comment in the book. I'm waiting for the day I hear an "original."

I've been short my entire life. It's never bothered me except for a period in my teen years. I'm immune to any comments about it because as I stated I've heard them all. People like to make comments about things that are different. Not a big deal.

I'm 5ft2, I've never been called adorable. I'm often told I'm beautiful(typically if it's a random stranger or someone I'm not close to), by men that are dating me I'm called sexy, by guys that like me and are trying to date me I've been told I'm pretty, gorgeous, fine, or very cute. Although the cute thing has only happened twice. So I don't think all short girls are called cute pet names. I think that maybe if they are calling you adorable it can be a combination of height, personality, and looks. The couple of times I was called cute it was admittingly when I was having blonde moments or being very naive (I'm black btw lol). So I interpreted it as my behavior mixed with my looks gave me this innocent look which translated to cuteness. But to me when men give me compliments it's referring to the entire package and how they work together. Face, body, aura, walk, personality, and how you are when you interact with them. Being short is one factor, there are others which together come off as adorable(for you) to men. It isn't a bad thing at all. Even being acknowledged as adorable or cute means you have at least been acknowledged as attractive or noticeable in some fashion. I wouldn't take it as an insult at all.

I find it strange that many women don't like being called cute. To me (a guy), adjectives like sexy and hot only speak to the guys loins. Beautiful and elegant are coldy asthetic... but cute or especially adorable come with real feelings of affection.
