I'm on the shorter side and men always call me adorable. It's annoying and I don't understand it?

It's a compliment, don't overthink it.

Would you rather be called "shorty"?

The guy I am sort of seeing calls me shorty. Oh well

"short" is just one of the qualities generally associated with "cute" or "adorable"...like big eyes. As mentioned, it's a compliment. Just because you're looking for a different compliment shouldn't make it "annoying". I'm a smart guy, and I'm really, really, average looking. So naturally, I'm told that I'm intelligent more than I'm told I'm attractive. It's certainly not annoying to hear, though.

is really, really, average looking any different from really average or just average?

I often tell guys they are intelligent or smart and I mean it as a compliment. I bet I have told women they are adorable but never meant it in a bad way. They weren't even all very short. Adorable = cute in my book.

It's ESPECIALLY average

But yes, that was my point. It just sounds like the OP isn't getting the compliment they want.

I don't know

Guys always call me cute as opposed to hot/sexy. Although I have received compliments on my butt, mostly due to the fact that I used to deadlift and squat quite a bit. I have up at squatting and deadlifting 150 though.

My guy friend told me cute is better than nothing, and much better than being called ugly or a butterface (nice bod, not so nice face)

I am short and petite so I can understand why I fall under cute versus any other term. Where as Keira Knightley and Charlize Theron (and hot) are elegant and Candixe Swanepoel and Joan Smalls are sexy (and gorgeous)

Maybe you are just cute. I am short, and have never been called adorable. Just laughed at and teased for being short lol

In pix online guys have called me hot, pretty, or sexy. Eh lol

Guess it depends on the guys maybe.
